Ok, so I'm playing Starfox 64, and this so-called "Peppy" hare keeps yelling at me:

Do a barrel roll!

What's his problem? And what is this barrel roll he's talking about?

    I'm not clear on something. Is this taking place before or after the hatches are open? – Buns Glazing Oct 2 '10 at 5:34

If you look at the screen, you will notice it'll give you a hint on how to perform the barrel roll in the text blurb.

You can perform a barrel roll by pressing Z or R twice

Here is a video showing the blurb and a successful barrel roll.


If I recall correctly, double tap the R or Z keys on top of the controller. Its when your craft spins left or right. Great for avoiding incoming enemy's or projectiles.

    L is not easily accessible the way the N-64 controller is usually held. I believe Z is the other control usual listed for barrel roles. Does L also work? – WillfulWizard Aug 5 '10 at 22:30

    "Press Z or R twice!" -- the man himself, Peppy Hare. – hobbs Aug 6 '10 at 2:56
