|~ Barrels' victory cry.|
Barrels are recurring villains and the archenemies of the YouTuber PewDiePie. They tend to be alcoholic, bullying, immature, and perverted versions of standard wooden or metal barrels. PewDiePie hates them because they hide items from him, block his way, work or conspire with others to destroy him, degrade and verbally assault him, or, in some cases, have tried to kill him personally. However, due to their limited mobility, they tend to specialize in taunting and discouraging him. It is not fully known why barrels hate PewDiePie, but it does not remove the fact that PewDiePie does not act much nicer to them. They are constantly smashed, thrown, and verbally assaulted even if they haven't done anything to PewDiePie yet.
PewDiePie: Legend of the Brofist
The Barrels are the main antagonists of the PewDiePie video game. They are lead by the Barrel King, who captures PewDiePie's fans and seeks the Legendary Brofist. The Barrel King sends General Barrel and his brother Generoll Barrel to defeat PewDiePie, but they both fail. After PewDiePie locates the Barrel King's hideout on the Moon, he frees his fans and together they create the Legendary Brofist, which they use to destroy the Barrel King.
On rare occasions, peace has come between PewDiePie and the barrels. The first time was when PewDiePie played Prop Hunt and disguised himself as a barrel. However, he did not acknowledge the irony of his disguise. During Alien: Isolation, barrels exploded and defeated a xenomorph, saving PewDiePie. PewDiePie thanked them and recognized their sacrifice. During his playthrough of Lucius, PewDiePie allied himself with the barrels due to him playing a villainous character. PewDiePie also reluctantly used a barrel as his monster during the Pokémon Amnesia mod. Barrels also helped during Alice: Madness Returns by blowing up enemies.
