HistoryBattle Stickers in Paper Mario: Sticker Star. They are only obtained from Broozers usually after battle. Barrels can be thrown at enemies dealing moderate damage.
Barrels appear in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. They were first found inside the Koopa Cruiser and there were many barrels in the deck. Mario and Luigi rolled the barrel and damaged it, one of Bowser's baddies was disappointed that they broke the "important stuff"; Mario/Luigi asked about the deck and told him where the deck was, he decided to teach the Bros. "how to fight as a pair" and they were allowed to break the barrel. They approach a green Bowser baddie who was capturing the Goomba but failed to do it. He asked Mario and Luigi to help him battle the two Goombas, he also demonstrated to them about stomping on the enemy to deal damage. After defeating the Goombas, Mario/Luigi captured the Goomba and passed it to the Bowser baddie who traps the Goomba into the barrel.
Mario and Luigi went to the Château de Chucklehuck where many barrels are found. Mario and Luigi rescued Cork and Cask from Popple and Rookie who "stoofed" them, they taught the Bros. the Mini-Mario and Luigi Dunk technique which Luigi can move inside the barrel, break the barrel and Mario can stand on top of it. Mario and Luigi encounters Bubbles who tells jokes to a barrel that fuses into Chuckolator in the Chucklehuck Woods. After Mario and Luigi defeats the Chuckolator, Bubbles outrages and damages the floor where Mario falls into the barrel that tips after he falls in. Luigi falls in a different area and walks to find Mario. He finds the barrel, rolled it to the river and he navigates the barrel to the Beanbean Kingdom. Luigi recovers Queen Bean by squirting out the Chuckola Reserve from Mario as Queen Bean spits the Belly Blech and returns to her normal self.
