Banjo using Forward Roll in Grunty's Revenge.

The Forward Roll is an attack that is used simply by pressing B Button 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 increases the speed and maneuverability of the attack. As a result, Banjo cannot use the move by himself, and appears to rather use his solo move, Pack Whack.

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 B Button while running. It still deals little damage to enemies but it is easier to control.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the Forward Roll appears as Banjo's dash attack, and as such is performed from a Talon Trot.
