The Rolling Attack (ローリング アタック Rooringu Attaku?), previously named the Beast Roll, is Blanka's signature special attack, introduced along with him in Street Fighter II. The move is the basis of his entire fighting style, also appearing in Street Fighter: The Storytelling Game[1].

Blanka's Rolling Attack countering Dhalsim's kick in Street Fighter IV.

Horizontal Roll

Rolling Attack, as seen in Super Street Fighter II Turbo Revival.

Executed by charging backward then pressing forward and punch, Blanka curls himself into a ball shape and rockets across the screen horizontally while spinning. The speed and horizontal distance traveled are determined by punch button pressed.

The EX Special version introduced in Street Fighter IV travels the entire screen very fast and goes through projectiles[2].      

TacticsEdit

The move itself is analogous to E. Honda's Sumo Headbutt. It has much faster startup, though, and as a result is less predictable and much more useful in ground assaults. However, it is easy to counter, and a well-timed jab or projectile can easily knock him out of it - and in fact, exclusive to the original Street Fighter II, Blanka takes double the normal damage if successfully hit mid-roll.

From Street Fighter II' onwards, Blanka can control not only the speed, but the range of his rolling attack. A common tactic is using the light Rolling Attack to stop short and launch into another attack (often a grab), catching the opponent off-guard.
