Roll

From 4chan Tournaments Wiki

Roll is a character from Capcom's Mega Man franchise. She is a humanoid robot built by the human scientist Dr. Light to serve in housekeeping. Roll is also the "younger sister" of Mega Man; together they are named after the music genre rock n' roll (Mega Man is named Rockman in Japanese).

Initially a non-playable supporting character, Roll has since become the most popular Mega Man female because of her consistent appearances in many installments, and the series' relatively low number of female characters. Her likeness is also used in other Mega Man alternative universe games Battle Network (Roll.EXE) and Legends (Roll Caskett). Furthermore, the robot has appeared as a playable character in multiple games, most notably in crossovers such as the vs. Capcom series.

Tournament History[edit]

Roll has enjoyed substantial success as a participant in the Queen of /v/ tournaments, being one of the few characters who can claim to not only have a perfect Elite Eight attendance record, but also whose performance has seen paulatine improvement through years of participation. As part of the original 2019 Elite Eight, Roll has gone from merely ranking 8th place after narrowly losing to Maya Fey in Quarter-finals, to getting the bronze in her latest tournament run and having only lost to eventual champion and fellow gynoid Curly Brace.

The Queen of /v/ 2023 tournament would signify a shake up from her usual thread presence. One of her campaigners would become particularly memorable for making several comics of Roll fighting different opponents that accurately emulated the classic games' NES style. She also had a major involvement in one storyline arc centered around SHODAN's run in the Loser's Bracket.

While arguably one of the strongest characters across the four main board tournaments overall, Roll has faced some scrutiny as a recurring contestant - either from people dissatisfied with how other Mega Man characters have fared in comparison to her, or just the shared notion most of her support and votes stem from lolicons rather than genuine fans of the series and character. Despite undeniably being a strong contestant, it remains to be seen if Roll truly has what it takes to eventually win a Queen of /v/ tournament.

Roll will be eligible to compete again for Queen of /v/ 2025.
