Kong Roll

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia
The Kongs perform the Kong Roll.

The Kong Roll[1] is a special move that can be performed by Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong in Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. In Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, the Kong Roll can also be executed with Dixie Kong or Cranky Kong, as they enter partnership with Donkey Kong in this game.

The move can only be executed when Diddy Kong is mounted on Donkey Kong's back. When the player shakes the Wii Remote, Donkey Kong proceeds into performing a roll attack. As he rolls, Diddy runs along on top of Donkey Kong to keep his momentum. Like the simple roll and Cartwheel Attack, the Kong Roll can be used to eliminate most enemies in the Kongs' path, as well as increase their speed. Unlike the two other moves, the Kong Roll continues as long as the player keeps shaking the Wii Remote. While performing a Kong Roll, the Kongs can jump far distances, or roll off a ledge and perform a midair jump; in some cases, such Kong Rolls are required for obtaining a Puzzle Piece.
