Roll out of harm's way!
—Peppy Hare

Rolling is a technique present in Star Fox Adventures and Star Fox Assault, not to be confused with the Barrel Roll). Its main purpose is to get the roller out of harm's way, but its continuous use is also slightly faster than walking.

Star Fox Adventures

Normally, Fox (or Krystal) suffers two units of damage when caught on fire, but by Rolling, the damage can be reduced to one. Rolling can be executed by pressing the X-button while running and when not in combat. Fox can combine rolling with a strike from Krystal's Staff to defeat knocked down SharpClaws at a much faster rate.

Star Fox Assault

In Star Fox Assault, rolling is a side-step to either the left or right. Different characters go at different lengths, Wolf's being the longest, Krystal's being the shortest. Unlike other given abilities, like jumping, side-stepping isn't rated with stars.

In the Super Smash Bros. games, Rolling is achieved by pushing the control stick left or right when blocking, this is useful for disorientation and avoiding strong attacks.
