A green horned toad warrior in bronze armor with a fur collar.
Role in the Series
Over 1,000 years before the events of the show, King Andrias was friends with a frog and a toad.
However, it is implied that Andrias' friends stole the Calamity Box from under his watch, hid it on Earth and stopped Newtopia's years of development. As more time went by, Amphibia forgot about Newtopia's old legacy.
He only appears in a torn portrait that was hidden away deep within Andrias' castle and in a flashback when Andrias revealed his true dark agenda.
As revealed in "The Core & The King", he was best friends with Andrias and Leif. But things changed after Leif had a vision involving the destruction of Amphibia. After Leif's concerns were ignored by King Aldrich, Leif stole the music box. Barrel tried to stop her but soon came to realize that not only he cannot betray his friend despite what she did, but that her vision shows a great danger to their world and what she's doing is right. Barrel allows Leif to escape but is banished from Newtopia by Andrias for his failure to capture Leif and is ordered to keep those outside of Newtopia in line and establishing the future role toads will have as enforcers.
- In the second teaser for the third season of Amphibia, Barrel was seen carrying his signature warhammer in order to give fans a hint of his true identity.
