|Roll Caskett, as seen in Mega Man Legends 2.|
Roll Caskett (ロール・キャスケット Rōru Kyasuketto?) is a character from the Mega Man Legends series based on Roll from the original Mega Man series. She is a 14 year old girl, and was raised together with Mega Man Volnutt, her best friend. Roll is a caring person and is always concerned with Mega Man's safety when he is on a digout.
Roll is an enthusiastic genius mechanic and can create, repair, modify, and pilot almost any type of machine. She is in charge of piloting and maintaining her family's airship, the Flutter, and is shown piloting other vehicles. Roll is also Mega Man's Spotter; she gives him information via radio based on what she can see with her equipment. She builds new parts for him, including Special Weapons and Buster Parts, from what he finds on his digs.
Roll is the granddaughter of the famous professor Barrell Caskett, who has raised her ever since her parents Matilda and Banner disappeared searching for the Mother Lode in Forbidden Island. She wants to find the Mother Lode before anyone else, being motivated by her hopes that her parents are still alive and will find them. When Barrell found Mega Man Volnutt, he raised him alongside Roll. Roll supports Mega Man in his adventures as a Digger.
When the Flutter crash-lands in Kattelox Island, Roll and her family are stuck on the island until their airship is repaired. She supports Mega Man in his adventure as his spotter, and she also develops new parts for him. Early in the game, she gives a walkie-talkie to Mega Man so he can call her, being able to transport him around the island with the Support Car. Using the large Refractors found by Mega Man, Roll repairs Wily's boat to take Mega Man to the Lake Jyun Sub-Gate, and later uses the Flutter to reach the entrance of the Clozer Woods Sub-Gate.
One year after leaving Kattelox Island, Barrell is invited by Verner Von Bluecher to go in a new expedition to Forbidden Island with the giant airship Sulphur-Bottom, and Roll is sad that they may find the Mother Lode before her, deciding to stay in the Flutter instead of accompanying her grandfather. While she and Mega Man were watching the conference on the Sulphur-Bottom with their TV, Roll saw the strange woman that looks like her mother Matilda, and Mega Man cheers her up to make her go discover if that's really her. While going to the Sulphur-Bottom, Data accidentally starts a fire on the Flutter, and Roll tries to repair the emergency sprinklers while Mega Man extinguishes the flames. If the player takes too long or receives much damage, she will fix them.
To be able to pass by Forbidden Island's storm and save the Sulphur-Bottom and its crew (which got stuck in the storm because of Gatz's attack), Roll decides to create a Dropship, a vehicle originally designed by her father. Mega Man and Roll go to the Calinca continent to buy parts for it in Yosyonke City. In the city's Junk Shop, Roll shows the ship's schematics and the owner asks if they are friends of Joe, the man that just left the shop and was also working in a Dropship, having similar schematics. Roll wonders if Joe knows her father, and goes to his laboratory, were his "daughter" says he went to Yosyonke's Abandoned Mine to find a Refractor for the Dropship. They hurry to the mine to help Joe, and find him badly injured, taking him back to Yosyonke to be treated. Joe says his Dropship is almost complete, and allows them to use it. When Roll asks about her parents, Joe laments for not being able to help, as he has amnesia and doesn't remember anything, saying he had the blueprints with him when he was found near Yosyonke. Roll completes Joe's Dropship and Mega Man uses it to save the Sulphur-Bottom.
Inside Bluecher's airship, Mega Man and Roll learn about the four keys to the Mother Lode, and return to the Flutter to go after them, Roll staying in the Flutter most of the time. During the course of the game, Mega Man can talk with Roll inside the Flutter to travel, give gifts to her, and give money to her to repair the damaged caused by the fire in the beginning. Roll can become happy or angry with Mega Man depending of his actions, which influences the prices of her weapon upgrades (by buying a new tool kit or breaking them) and what she writes on her diary.
In Manda Island, Tron Bonne jams Roll's transmission and uses a voice modifier to talk like Roll, trying to make Mega Man think she is a bad person, but after her defeat, the transmission returns and Mega Man is happy to see the person talking wasn't her. In Nino Island, Roll repairs the Parabola Gun to defeat Glyde's airship, King Glydon. When they return to Calinca, Roll pilots the train modified by Joe to help Mega Man fight against the Gemeinschaft. When Mega Man is severely injured in the battle against Geetz, Roll got very worried with him, asking Yuna many times if there was anything she could do to help. When Yuna said he would probably going to be all right, she almost started crying, and is relieved when he regains consciousness. Mega Man than goes to Elysium, and doesn't return. It's unclear if Roll knows for sure if the woman that looks like her mother (which body is being used by Yuna) is really Matilda or someone else.
At the end of the second game, she is seen working with Tron who reforms or still a rival on building a rocket to retrieve Mega Man from Elysium, their tenth rocket exploding. Unfortunately, her working with Tron results in the two of them fighting on details and refusing to accept Data's help, leaving Data to lament on how long Mega Man will be stuck up there.
Roll would have appeared in Mega Man Legends 3, in which she would have worked on the 28th rocket to rescue Mega Man; however, the game was cancelled in July 2011.
In the demo Rockman DASH 2 Episode 1, Roll gives a tutorial to Mega Man in the first mission. In the fourth mission, she is kidnapped by Tron and placed inside a crate in Manda Island. Mega Man tries to rescue her, but after defeating the Servbots and Tron's Jagd Krabbe, he discovers Data had already saved her.
In Namco × Capcom, Roll appears alongside Mega Man Volnutt as a playable unity.
Roll has a cameo appearance in the ending of The Misadventures of Tron Bonne, in the background of the Running Battle mode from Super Gem Fighter: Mini Mix and has two cards in SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighters 2 Expand Edition.
In the game Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop, Frank West can use Roll's clothes after completing the game in hard mode with S rank. The outfit includes a blonde wig with her hairstyle and a Data doll hanging in the left arm.
In episode 11 of the Mega Man Star Force anime, an advertising TV screen shows a quick glance of a woman with the same clothes and hairstyle as Roll.
- In Mega Man Legends 2, if Mega Man shows Roll affection by getting her things from gift shops and by protecting her in the Calinca Tundra, she will write in her diary about her feelings towards Mega Man. This is obviously hinting at a love relationship Roll has with him (reading it if the player returns from Elysium has Roll openly state that she loves him), but it's never revealed in the main story.
- At one point in Mega Man Legends, if the player walk into Roll's room after fixing the Flutter, there is a scene where she embarrassedly shouts at Mega Man for walking into her room (it's implied that he walked in on her while she was changing), and then tells him to knock next time. After apologizing, Mega Man raises his fist in a victory pose.
- A similar event to the above also happens in Mega Man Legends 2; after buying and/or collecting the three gift items from island shops and giving them to Roll, she disappears from the cockpit of the Flutter, leaving only Data in the room. Data suggests that Mega Man should take a bath, but if the player goes to the Flutter bathroom and enters, a voice-only scene "Eek! What do you think you're doing?!" implies that Mega Man walked in on Roll taking a bath herself (Roll later mentions both this and the above event in her diary). Mega also raises his fist in a victory pose. Interestingly enough, this event is the trigger for Roll to drop all weapon upgrade prices by 10%.
- The pattern on the original Roll's broom is similar to the pattern on Roll Caskett's hat.
- Her name, Caskett, is a distorted interpretation of the writing of the French word "casquette", that means cap in English, probably referring to her hat.
- At one point in Megaman Legends 2 during travel with Megaman if Megaman picks Roll she will slap Megaman saying "Eek!" or "Stop it Megaman!".
