Aqua using Cartwheel against the Unknown.

Cartwheel (ホイールロール Hoīru Rōru?, lit. "Wheel Roll") is a technique in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage-, and Kingdom Hearts III. It allows the user to evade attacks by literally cartwheeling across ground. Cartwheel is different from Dodge Roll and Slide, in that it gives a long invincibility time when the animation is being performed, rather than just moving.


In Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Cartwheel is a Movement command that has a has a maximum level of 4. Leveling up this command increases the amount of distance covered. Once it has reached level 4, it offers total invincibility frame coverage, meaning that as long as Aqua continues to Cartwheel (not stopping to run, attack, or use Commands), she cannot be hit by enemy attacks at all.

In Kingdom Hearts III, Cartwheel is a mobility ability activated by pressing Square/X while moving.
