Version differences

The red drum in Dòngwù Sēnlín

In Dòngwù Sēnlín, the red drum has the same design as the Japanese one only with Chinese lettering.

Leftover dummy item

The dummy model used by unused items in Animal Crossing.

In Animal Crossing, the red drum is still leftover in the game data as a dummy item, unobtainable without gameplay modification or glitches. It has the unused name "red drum" and uses the dummy model, a white triangle with red Japanese text reading ダミー (damī, dummy). Its name was also translated to other languages in the European version of Animal Crossing, with the name "bidón rojo" in Spanish, "fût rouge" in French, "Fass rot" in German, and "fusto rosso" in Italian.

It remains unused in Doubutsu no Mori e+, where, as with all dummy items in that game, its name appears as "かぐ?" (kagu?, furniture?) in the player's inventory. However, when dropped on the ground outside, its name from Doubutsu no Mori+ is shown. The item appears as the same dummy model but cannot be placed down in the player's house if in their inventory.
