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?

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? Aug 5, 2010 at 22:30

    "Press Z or R twice!" -- the man himself, Peppy Hare.
