Dark Roll causes the user to transform into a glowing sphere of darkness, move at a fast pace in the desired direction, and then return to human form.

Dark Roll (ダークロール Dāku Rōru?) is a technique that appears in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance and Kingdom Hearts III. It allows the user to dodge attacks by melting into the shadows.


Dark Roll is a movement command exclusive to Riku. It is equipped as a Dodge Roll-type command. It grants +2 to Defense and +20 to Dark Defense when attached to a Dream Eater recipe. Y can be tapped without a direction to Dark Roll if a Block-type command is not equipped, and Riku can control the distance dashed during Dark Roll; if the chosen direction is tapped or not tapped at all (if Block is not equipped), then Riku will Dark Roll a short slow distance forward. Holding a direction will increase the distance traveled.
