Ventus using Dodge Roll twice in the Radiant Garden

Dodge Roll (ドッジロール Dojji Rōru?) is a technique that appears in Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Kingdom Hearts II, Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, and Kingdom Hearts Re:coded. As its name implies, Dodge Roll is a short leap forward used to dodge attacks. While dodge rolling, the player is invulnerable to enemy attacks, making it an invaluable ability for escaping dangerous situations in battle. Leveling up increases the distance covered by the roll.

Mechanics

In Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Dodge Roll is activated by pressing B s and a direction on the left analog stick.

In Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, Dodge Roll is activated by tapping a direction in the control pad twice during battle. In Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, Dodge Roll is activated by pressing B s and a direction on the left analog stick.

In Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, in addition to being a Reaction Command, Dodge Roll is also a Growth Ability learned and upgraded by leveling up Limit Form.

At first, it can only be used in Limit Form, but leveling up Limit Form eventually allows it to be used by all of Sora's forms, including not being in a Drive Form at all.

"Dodge Up Ⓛ") panels. It is triggered by pressing ButtonY and a direction on the control pad.
