The Forward Roll is an attack that is used simply by pressing while running. It is a basic but useful attack, and although it does not do as much damage and is not as easily controlled as the Rat-a-tat Rap, it is especially handy for dealing with enemies which are low to the ground. In Banjo-Tooie, Kazooie uses her wings to assist Banjo in rolling, which, although it does serve to increase the speed and maneuverability of the attack, was most likely implemented so that Banjo would have to learn a new attack in order to be able to fight on his own.
The Forward Roll can also be learned from Bozzeye in Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge. Bozzeye teaches it to Banjo in Cliff Farm for the price of 60 Musical Notes. The ability is performed exactly as it is in Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie by pressing while running. It still deals little damage to enemies but it is easier to control.
