    4. INTRODUCTION
    
    Hello, and thank you for taking time to look into this FAQ. Like most of
    you, I'm a regular at gamefaqs, but this is actually the very first actual
    faq I've written. For a game like Tatusunoko vs Capcom to come to
    the US, as well as get additional stuff, was a big surprise for many fans.
    A few days in and this game is on top of the Wii boards of gamefaqs.
    
    As you read through this FAQ, I hope to inspire you to add another
    main to your list of main users in this game. I'll make sure to list
    all that I can about Roll. If you have any comments or suggestions,
    or if you have discovered any flaws, please go to Contact Information.
    I hope you enjoy this faq.

    6. ABOUT ROLL
    
    Roll is from the megaman series, *in japan it is known as the rockman
    series,* though her name was not revealed until Megaman 3. Her name
    combined with Rock's adds the pun of "Rock and Roll." She is first playable
    in Marvel VS Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes and appears in the sequel as
    well. She is a downloadable playable character in Megaman
    Powered up, and her Tatsunoko vs Capcom version resembles MM powered up
    more than MvC. She is the sister of megaman and proto man, and is a house
    keeping robot, assisting Dr. Light around the lab.
    
    Originally in Marvel Vs Capcom, her move set revolved around an inferior
    version of Megaman's, but her sprite was the smallest of all characters,
    giving her a small advantage, *pun intended* against larger characters.
    Nothing changed much about her in Marvel Vs Capcom 2, but now Roll returns
    in Tatsunoko vs Capcom, with her own original, and very effective, fighting
    style.
    
    Roll attacks using some punches, kicks, a bucket, and her main weapon is
    a broom which she cleans with. As one of the few people who mained Roll
    in the MvC series, *short size sprite ftw* I'm proud to honor this faq
    toward her TvC return.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    PROS
    
    +Well balanced arsenal of attacks

    +Small size, if not smallest. Your foe will o_o when they notice they

    if needed

    +Extreme OTG capabilities.
    
    +Can increase her damage, and increase special potientials as well.

    CONS
    
    -Small Reach with some attacks
    
    -Some combos may leave her open, though partner can prevent this
    
    -Not very effective against giants
    
    -Healing leaves her open, unless used with caution
    
    -Her launch is a bit slow and can be blocked if you attempt to combo
    with it.
    
    -Less max health than most characters, yet heal slightly makes up.
    
    If you have something to add to either Pros or Cons, please go to
    contact info.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    9. ROLL'S REGULAR ATTACKS
    
    Roll attacks with her hands, legs, and every part of her broom.
    
    	A. L Attacks
    
    While Standing: Roll slaps her foe. Can be used continuously.
    
    In Air: Roll hits his foe with the hilt of her broom handle. If attack 
    connects, press L again to do a follow-up strike.
    
    While Crouching: Roll does a low side kick. This attack is a low hit.
    
    	B. M Attacks
    
    While Standing: Roll sweeps the foe with her broom twice.
    
    In Air: Roll kicks the enemy with one foot. If attack connects, press
    M again to follow-up with a kick with her other foot.
    
    While Moving: Roll hops and does an overhead swing.
    
    While Crouching: Roll does a low drop kick. This attack is a low hit.
    
    	C. H Attacks
    
    While Standing: Roll does a strong sweep, similar to M's double sweep,
    only one time.
    
    In Air: Roll does an overhead swing similar to M while moving.
    
    While Crouching: Roll does a low swing sweep with her broom, knocking the
    foe down. This attack is a low hit.
    
    Launch: Roll does an underhead swing with her broom.
    
    Grab Foward: Roll hops and puts a bucket on her foe's head, then smacks
    her foe.
    
    Grab Backward: Roll hops and puts a bucket on her foes head, lands
    behind the foe, and smacks her foe with the broom from that side.
    
    Air Grab Forward: Same as Grab Forward, they're just in the air.
    
    Air Grab Backward: Similar to Grab Backward, but she does a flip while
    smacking her foe in the head.
    
    NOTE: To grab, be near a foe and press F or B + H
    
    Dash Forward: Roll hops on her broom, and the broom activates engines
    that boost Roll forward quickly.
    
    Dash Backward: Same thing really.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    10. ROLL'S SPECIALS AND SUPERS
    
    Every character has their trump cards, whether it is martial art attacks,
    advanced weaponry, super powers, etc. For Roll? Cleaning the utter heck
    out of her foes. Surprisingly effective, and leaves that minty smell.
    
    A. SPECIALS
    
    ####################################################
    Roll Broom Swing		QCF + AT
    ####################################################
    
    Roll swings her broom at her foe like a bat, knocking them a distance.
    This is used as her variable counter. Roll Broom Swing can reflect
    projectiles. AT button determines speed and power.
    
    CHARGED VERSION: Same thing, but is stronger and becomes a wallbounce.
    
    Author's Notes: Very useful for creating some distance between you and
    your foe. The charged version is a must-use because of the wall bounce.
    
    ####################################################
    Roll Splash			DPF + AT
    ####################################################
    
    Roll spins and reveals a bucket of water, and splashes it at her foe.
    If it hits, your foe will stagger. This is a projectile, and even
    rivals other characters non-super projectiles. If it does not hit,
    it leaves a puddle, in which if your foe steps on, they will fall
    to the ground and take a tiny bit of damage. This move is Roll's
    assist move. AT button determines how far the water is thrown.
    
    CHARGED VERSION: The water just goes straight forward, but it hits the
    foe a few more times.
    
    Author's Notes: It may be hard to pull off while controlling Roll,
    but as an assist move it only takes one button. This is one of the most
    useful assist moves in the game. If it hits, your foe will stagger,
    giving you a chance to get a free combo in. If it doesn't, it leaves a
    puddle, which can either save you or set up another combo.
    
    ####################################################
    Roll Power Up!			QCB + AT
    ####################################################
    
    Roll charges her broom, making the head spiral with energy. This move
    enhances all of Roll's specials. Look at "CHARGED VERSION" of the
    specials to see the effects.
    
    Author's Notes: This not only enhances her specials, but her attack
    power as well. All normal L, M, and H attacks get a power boost.
    I am not sure if buttons determine any change in Roll's charge.
    
    IMPORTANT NOTE: If Roll charges her broom, then the player switches to
    the partner, her broom remains charged, but it does not effect her
    assist in any way. Broom is still charged when player switches back
    to Roll.
    
    ####################################################
    Roll Mop Up			Charge B, F + AT
    ####################################################
    
    Roll spins and her broom turns into a mop, and charges forward,
    mopping anything while moving. While mopping, mash whatever AT
    button you used to start the move to make Roll constantly scrub
    the ground of wherever she's standing. This attack can hit OTG foes.
    AT button determines startup time, number of hits, and damage.
    
    CHARGED VERSION: The charge does more damage, and the scrubs get
    more hits in, as well as better damage.
    
    Author's Notes: This is possibly Roll's strongest move.
    When charged, this move will not only do great damage if you hit an
    OTG foe, but it also gives a nice boost to your hyper gauge.
    
    B. SUPERS
    
    LEVEL 1
    
    ####################################################
    Roll Mop Up Turbo		Charge B, F + AT+AT
    ####################################################
    
    A powered up version of Roll Mop Up. Roll charges forward mopping
    anything in her path, then ends with a Roll Broom Swing. The mops
    forward count as low hits, while the swing is a normal hit. The
    mops hit OTG, but the swing does not.
    
    Author's Notes: Combine this with a charged Roll Mop Up, and
    you'll be dishing damage out in no time, while building up the
    gauge at the same time.
    
    LEVEL 2
    
    #################################################
    Roll Down Time			QCB + AT+AT
    #################################################
    
    When used, a power pellet drops from above Roll, and heals
    her upon impact. This move can heal Rock, Casshern, Gold Lightan,
    PTX-40A, or Zero as well. Anyone else takes slight damage from it.
    
    Author's Notes: This move seperates Roll from every other character.
    It is essential for survival against a tough foe, but can leave you
    wide open if foe is not staggered or anything. Use with care.
    
    LEVEL 3 (ULTIMATE)
    
    #################################################
    Oh. No. You. Didn't!		DPF + AT+AT
    #################################################
    
    Roll scrubs the floor so hard that it starts a fire. If the foe
    is caught in the fire, their rear is set aflame, causing damage.
    While they attempt to fan the flames out, Roll then gets a gigantic
    bucket of water and spills it all over her foe.
    
    Author's Notes: A good, comical ultimate. I believe it hits low,
    *NOT CONFIRMED* and the damage is ultimate worthy. Just be careful
    not to waste it.

    11.SOLO ROLL COMBOS AND PARTNER COUNTER ADVICE
    
    This faq is dedicated to help more users use Roll better, possibly making
    her a new main. Of course, you'll want to be able to solo two enemies at
    once, so take a look at this list of combos for Roll alone. We'll start
    with basics, then start enhancing our combos, as well as combining them
    with supers. Please note that I do NOT use baroque often. Because of
    this I do not have any baroque combos added, but if you wish to add your
    own combo, go to contact info and let me know, and I will quote you,
    and even credit you.
    
    	A. Combos
    
    These Combos do not have any Supers in them, though Supers can be quite
    potent in each of these combos. See Super Combos for examples.
    
    ***********************************************************************
    L L M Roll Broom Swing
    ***********************************************************************
    
    Basic Combo. Get four hits in, then knock the enemy away real quick.
    
    ***********************************************************************
    L hD L M H Roll Broom Swing
    ***********************************************************************
    
    The first punch sets your foe up, then hold down to crouch, throw
    another L and then an M, quickly followed by a H then a Broom Swing.
    Charge for more damage and possibilities.
    
    ***********************************************************************
    Roll Power Up! L L M Broom Swing WB Launch L L M M Roll Broom Swing
    ***********************************************************************
    
    Similar to the first combo, but now that you charged your broom,
    you can WB your foe, and catch them with a launch to continue the combo.
    
    ***********************************************************************
    L hDB L M H Roll Mop Up
    ***********************************************************************
    
    IMPORTANT NOTE: Notice the hDB? This translates to Hold Down and Back.
    This is your trump control card. The reason for this is that not only
    are you crouching, but you are holding back at the same time. This lets
    you to charge for Roll Mop Up without moving backward. Since you are
    doing a down high, your foe will OTG, and that is where you follow up
    with an H Roll Mop Up. This is one of the biggest set-ups for Roll,
    which can be improved by either Roll Power Up or Roll Mop Up Turbo,
    or both. Look at the section "Super Combos" to see a sample.
    
    ***********************************************************************
    Roll Power Up! L L M Launch L L M M Roll Broom Swing Roll Mop Up
    ***********************************************************************
    
    This is another useful combo. Charge your broom, then get some hits in
    and then launch your foe. Combo in the air and end with a Roll Broom
    Swing. The WB will allow you to land first, and charge up for a Roll
    Mop Up. You'll have plenty of time, since Roll Mop Up requires very
    little charging.
    
    	B. Super Combos
    
    These combos focus on getting hits on your foe so that their guard
    will be down, allowing a free super hit.
    
    ************************************************************************
    L L M Roll Broom Swing Roll Down Time
    ************************************************************************
    
    Same as the first combo in the non super combo list, but the broom swing
    allows you some distance, and the enemy will be OTG for the most part.
    You can use this advantage to heal yourself. Works even
    better if you used Roll Power Up before hand.
    
    ************************************************************************
    L hDB L L M Roll Mop Up Turbo
    ************************************************************************
    
    Basic combo and super. You should get most of the Roll Mop Up Turbo hits
    with this.
    
    ************************************************************************
    Roll Power Up! L M Launch L L M M Roll Broom Swing Roll Mop up -
    Roll Mop Up Turbo
    ************************************************************************
    
    Same as the last listed normal combo, only this time we're adding a
    Roll Mop Up Turbo.
    
    ************************************************************************
    Roll Power Up! L L M Roll Broom Swing Roll Mop Up Roll Mop Up Turbo
    ************************************************************************
    
    You don't need to launch them into the air to do this. All you need is a
    charged broom for a WB. This is an effective combo.
    
    ************************************************************************
    Roll Power Up! L hDB L L M H Roll Mop Up Roll Mop Up Turbo
    ************************************************************************
    
    This is my most commonly used combo. Your foe will get OTG'd from the 
    crouching H strike, your already charging for the Roll Mop Up, so you can
    do the command for it the instant your H strike hits. Thanks to Roll Power
    up, your Roll Mop Up gets a big boost of damage. This does around 19,000
    billion depending on how much you put into the combo.
    
    	C. Partner Counter Advice
    
    Listen and Listen well. While these combos will indeed dish out good
    damage, there may be a few drawbacks. For example, if you Roll Mop Up
    Turbo someone who is OTG, the Roll Broom Swing at the end will miss,
    but that is not the issue. The issue is that after the swing, Roll
    does a pose that leaves her open for attacks. This can be a big
    downfall in a battle where your life is low, but there is one thing
    that can save you. Your partner of course! Depending on the type of
    partner you chose, they may be able to save you from this weakness.
    Press P constantly when Roll Mop Up Turbo is about to end!
    
    All the combos listed here are examples, and you should not feel limited
    to them. Experiment at will, and discover many other possible combos
    you can achieve with Roll. Remember, practice makes perfect. Also, make
    good use of her dash capabilities. That can be a big advantage when
    starting a combo.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    12. PARTNER COMPATIBILITY
    
    Roll's assist make her a good teammate with anyone.
    What makes a good combo
    with Roll are people with specials and supers that can attack OTG.
    Course, it is not limited to OTG. Here is a list of partner
    compatibilities, paring Roll up with every other character in the game,
    expect for giants.
    
    Capcom Side
    
    	A. Ryu
    Ryu is overall balanced and his play control is simple and easy.
    His assist is hadoken, which makes him a good partner. You can get some
    Variable Combinations in with Roll and Ryu, as long as your foe is not
    in the air.
    Ryu cannot be healed by Roll Down Time.
    
    	B. Chun Li
    Some people can get a bit reckless with Chun li, pressing an attack
    button too much then she does her Hyakuretsukyaku, giving your foe
    a chance to breath after you comboed him. Roll's assist can prevent
    this, and if you Roll Mop Up Turbo OTG, Chun-Li's assist is fast
    enough to save you. I would not suggest Variable Combinations with
    these two, but feel free to experiment.
    Chun Li cannot be healed by Roll Down Time.
    
    	C. Morrigan
    Morrigan is also really fast. Her assist is good for stunning your
    foe, and letting Roll get some combos in. Variable Combination Roll
    turbo mop up with Finishing Shower and your foe won't will not
    last long.
    Morrigan cannot be healed by Roll Down Time.
    
    	D. Alex
    Roll splashes, Alex grabs. Nuff said really, this can be a
    dangerous duo.
    Alex cannot be healed by Roll Down Time.
    
    	E. Batsu
    Batsu has a good combination of low attacks. Combine with Roll's
    assist and he will lay a punishment two times worse than he could
    by himself.
    Batsu cannot be healed by Roll Down Time.
    
    	F. Megaman Volnutt
    Rock and Roll, ha ha. Depending on the player's style, Megaman
    can have alot of variety of combos, combined with Roll's assist,
    and the same way around with Roll.
    Megaman Volnutt can be healed by Roll Down Time.
    
    	G. Kaijin no Soki
    Soki is all about long ranged ground attacks. Keep your foe from
    getting into the air and the Soki and Roll team will completely
    dominate. Hyper or DHC combos are not suggested, however.
    Soki cannot be healed by Roll Down Time.
    
    	H. Saki
    Saki is more range oriented, but Roll's assist can help her get
    some melee attacks in, incase the foe manages to get close enough
    to saki. Strongly against Variable Combinationing with these
    two, however.
    Saki cannot be healed by Roll Down Time.
    
    	I. Viewitful Joe
    The shortest possible team you can get. Joe needs to get close
    to his foes since his reach is small, but with Roll's assist that's
    all the edge he needs. Variable Combination Mop Up Turbo with his
    Desperado, for massive damage.
    Viewitful Joe cannot be healed by Roll Down Time.
    
    	J. Frank West
    Frank's attacks are a bit slow, so using Roll's assist should really
    help him get some good attacks in. Variable Combination Real Mega
    Buster with Mop Up Turbo, and you will not be disappointed.
    Frank West cannot be healed by Roll Down Time.
    
    	K. Zero
    Zero is who I most commonly use Roll with. They're both from the
    mega man series, they're both awesome characters, and they both have
    three colors that completely match colors, which is something I like
    to do. Symmetry in color is a team work achievement in my opinion.
    Variable Combinations are not suggested, but certain DHC combos will
    work just fine if you can time them.
    Zero can be healed by Roll Down Time.
    
    Tatsunoko Side
    
    	L. Ken the Eagle
    While Ken continuously teleports in the air, Roll's assist will throw
    your foe off guard, allowing Ken to get close after such confusion.
    Variable Combination his Bird smash with Mop Up Turbo, you won't
    be disappointed.
    Ken the Eagle cannot be healed by Roll Down Time.
    
    	M. Jun the Swan
    Jun's assist can help Roll just as much as Roll's assist can help
    Jun. Variable Combinations may not be suggested, but try them out
    if you must.
    Jun the Swan cannot be healed by Roll Down Time.
    
    	N. Casshern
    Casshern is an effective partner for Roll. His assist can save her
    from Roll Mop Up Turbo control delay, and also OTG. Combine Roll's
    assist with Friender, and it will give off a Roll and Rush feeling.
    One of his supers hits OTG, which is good for a DHC combo with Roll.
    
    
    	O. Tekkaman
    Tekkaman's supers do a heck of alot of damage. Variable Combination
    any of his two supers with Mop Up Turbo and you can't be stopped.
    Tekkaman cannot be healed by Roll Down Time.
    
    	P. Polimar
    Step one, OTG foe.
    Step Two, Mop Up with Roll.
    Step Three, Variable Combination Mop Up Turbo with Tenshin Polimar
    Drill.
    Step Four, Profit.
    Polimar cannot be healed by Roll Down Time.
    
    	Q. Yatterman-1
    Yatterman-1 has very fast attacks, though his assist is nowhere
    near as useful as Roll's. However, what makes these two good
    teammates is that they both have supers that hit OTG foes. Use the
    sweep and mop up combo, combined with a DHC yatterwan flame, and
    if you have enough in your gauge, DHC Mop up Turbo.
    Keep in mind, that you cannot do two WBs in one combo. For example,
    you WB the foe with Roll, and followup with a Roll Mop Up and
    Roll Mop Up Turbo. If you do Yatterwan Flame, it will thrash the
    foe backward, but not have a WB effect. This gives your foe a
    chance to block the flame.
    Yatterman-1 cannot be healed by Roll Down Time.
    
    	R. Karas
    Karas is fast and can do insane combos. Combine with Roll's
    assist. Variable Combination combos between these two are not
    suggested.
    Karas cannot be healed by Roll Down Time.
    
    	S. Doronjo
    Doronjo's attacks require a bit of time. Roll's assist will give
    you that time. A Variable Combination between these two can leave
    your foe off guard, due to the delay in Doronjo's Variable
    Combination.
    Doronjo cannot be healed by Roll Down Time.
    
    	T. Ippatsuman
    Ippatsuman is fast and furious, and his attacks send his foes into
    the air. Roll sweeps her foes and leaves them grounded. Sounds like
    Yin and Yang, but works well. Variable Combination at your own risk.
    Ippatsuman cannot be healed by Roll Down Time.
    
    	U. Tekkaman Blade
    Tekkaman Blade's moves and specials are also fast, but can be used
    well with Roll's assist. His assist is by far not useful at all,
    however. Variable Combinations between these two will not work out.
    Tekkaman Blade cannot be healed by Roll Down Time.
    
    	V. Joe the Condor
    Joe attacks aggressively, so Roll's assist will be vital to keep your
    foe staggered. His assist can help Roll if the foe is in the air, dashing
    at her. Variable Combination if you will.
    Joe the Condor cannot be healed by Roll Down Time.
    
    	W. Yatterman-2/Ai-Chan
    Like Chun-Li, her mash AT attack can be troublesome.
    Still, her attacks are fast and can be comboed well with a partner's
    assist. Variable Combinations are not suggested.
    Yatterman-2 cannot be healed by Roll Down Time.

    13. SPECIFIC COMPETITION TACTICS
    
    Some characters may have an advantage over Roll, but here is some advice
    to help you against all the other characters in the game.
    
    Capcom Side
    
    	A. Ryu
    Honestly, you'll fight more Ryus online than you can count. Air dash
    over his hadokens, if any, and get a combo started. Watch out for
    Shoryuken when dashing though. If he's a melee combo player,
    defense and counter, or beat him to the punch.
    
    	B. Chun Li
    Nothing too threatening, just watch out for Kikoushou when preparing
    to attack. Also note that her ultimate only works in air, so careful
    when handling her in mid-air.
    
    	C. Morrigan
    Same as Ryu, watch out for Shadow Blade. Morrigan can dish out damage
    fast with combos. Beat her to the punch.
    
    	D. Alex
    You should play defensive, yet you can't let yourself get corned. His
    grabs can get annoying. The idea is to slowly consume the patience of
    the alex player, so his attacks get more reckless, leaving him open for
    combos. Advance guard when he does his Boomerang Raid to avoid the
    grab part.
    
    	E. Batsu
    He's not a big threat while in the air, but while on the ground it
    may take some patience.
    
    	F. Megaman Volnutt
    Depending on how the foe uses him, your options can vary. If their
    ranged attack spammers, same as Ryu. If Melee oriented, defense and
    counter. Know his attacks and when to block low.
    
    	G. Kaijin no Soki
    His stupid sword poke can somehow hit even the small characters.
    If he gets too close, distant yourself with advance guard. Get
    close to him using air dashes. His air skills are lacking.
    
    	H. Roll
    Judging if you've been reading this faq, you should know what
    to watch out for.
    
    	I. Saki
    Saki is long range oriented, so she has trouble facing melee.
    Jump over her blasts and dash toward
    her for an assault. Be sure to keep your finger close to the Backward
    button to block her Positron Storm. Let her waste them for her team,
    so you can resume getting close at her for combos.
    
    	J. Viewitful Joe
    Be careful of his boomerangs and bombs. It may be best to stick to
    ground combos, since his air joe could interfere with any combo you do.
    Joe lacks averge ranged melee moves, unlike Roll. Use this to your
    advantage.
    
    	K. Frank West
    Don't stand near the edge of your side of the screen, or he'll summon
    a zombie near you. His attacks are slow, and most of them requires DP
    movements. Use air dashes and quick thinking.
    
    	L. Zero
    Block one attack and you'll block a whole combo. You need to be quicker
    and smarter to beat a potent zero user.
    
    	M. PTX-40A
    Roll is not good against giants, since none of her moves make the giants
    flinch or anything. All I can say is to stay in the air, use assist as
    much as you can, one H in air, advance guard to avoid a combo followed by
    a grab, rinse and repeat. Practice how to breakaway from a grab and you
    should be okay.
    
    Tatsunoko Side
    
    	N. Ken the Eagle
    I've seen some good air Ken's online, spamming teleport until your dizzy.
    Stay focused, and if you see Ken do a teleport near you, a launch attack
    should be able to connect before he can react.
    
    	O. Jun the Swan
    Her regular attacks can be tricky, mixing normal and low hits, but her
    specials can leave her open.
    
    	P. Casshern
    Not sure what to say. I rarely fight Casshern sadly. Just watch out for
    that unblockable lighting punch, as well as friender.
    
    	Q. Tekkaman
    Quickly use air dashes to your advantage. If your fast enough, Tekkaman
    will not have a chance to respond.
    
    	R. Polimar
    Again, rarely fight him. Watch out for his grab super, and his little
    rush grab.
    
    	S. Yatterman-1/Gan
    Yatterman-1 doesn't have good anti-air, so attack from there. Watch out
    for Yatterwan Flame.
    
    	T. Karas
    Play defensive. Let your foe wear themself down barraging you with combos
    while you block and advance guard. Combo back once they slip.
    
    	U. Doronjo
    Nothing to say really, just watch out for Tonzura's air rock throw.
    
    	V. Ippatsuman
    Rarely fight. Stick to the ground since one of his supers is an upward
    grab.
    
    	W. Tekkaman Blade
    Air dash to get close to him. Watch out for that move where leaves his
    blade behind and dashes behind you. Also, when air dashing watch out
    for that ranged grab he can do.
    
    	X. Joe the Condor
    His M Wild Lasso has no chance of hitting Roll while she's on the ground.
    Use this to your advantage.
    
    	Y. Yatterman-2/Ai-Chan
    Rarely fight. Her launch is a low hit, so be careful.
    
    	Z. Gold Lightan
    Same with PTX pretty much.
