Donkey Kong performs a barrel roll.

The Barrel Roll is Donkey Kong's signature attack in the Donkey Kong Country series.


In Donkey Kong Country, Donkey Kong can perform this move to defeat any enemy, with the exception of Krusha, Zinger, and all of the bosses. Multiple Barrel Rolls can be chained together to mow through and go faster. In addition, Donkey Kong can use the Barrel Roll over a gap and still be able to jump after to give him more distance. The move is later used in the game's sequel, Donkey Kong Land.

In Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, Kiddy Kong uses the move. Kiddy Kong can hop across ponds by performing it near an edge with water, and can also reach heights that are inaccessible. One technique method that can be used is to have Dixie Kong pick up Kiddy and throw him against a wall; the Kong will roll back, and if Dixie were to get on Kiddy, they can eliminate several enemies. The move is later used in the game's sequel, Donkey Kong Land III.

The move returns as one of Donkey Kong's basic moves in Donkey Kong 64.

The Barrel Roll returns as Donkey Kong's signature attack in Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. The attack can be used by shaking the Wii Remote or the control pad while moving.

The attack returns in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, serving the same function as it did in Donkey Kong Country Returns.

In Super Smash Bros. 4, the Barrel Roll is his "Dash attack". It rams into any opponent, and deals 10% or 8% damage.
