Much like her video game counterpart, Roll shares the role of main heroine alongside her operator Maylu, in which the two of them work together with Lan, MegaMan, and the rest of their friends throughout many adventures in the series and in addition to this, Roll is also show to develop and have personal feelings for MegaMan as well.
In the anime series, Roll is a fellow NetNavi working with MegaMan to help stop the WWW from succeeding with their evil plans. Roll's operator is Maylu Sakurai, a friend of Lan Hikari, the operator of MegaMan. Roll has many attacks such as her Roll Blast, that she used against TorchMan in the episode "Hot Tempers!", and her Roll Control which she used against WackoMan in the episode, "Wacky Maddness & Blazing Battles!".
In "Evil Empress Roll", Roll was hacked by the Devil Chip, which had appeared innocuous and had been called the "Super Great White Angel Chip" when Maylu had first received it from Higsby (actually Yahoot in disguise). She was forcibly transformed into a more malicious version of herself with dominatrix overtones and took on the name "Empress" ("Roll-sama" in Japan). This effect was eliminated when Maylu manually overrode the Devil Chip with another.
Following the events of the N1 Grand Prix, Dr. Hikari gives Roll a modified virus named Rush as a pet. Rush is happily welcomed and proves to be a great asset while navigating PharaohMan's desert and pyramid.
In episode four of Axess, "Soul Unison!", Roll was up against FlashMan, who was causing blackouts all over ACDC. MegaMan attacks him, but Roll accidentally hits MegaMan with her Aqua Tower, almost deleting him. Lan takes MegaMan to Scilab where Dr. Hikari begins the repair process. Angry at herself, Roll goes back to fight FlashMan. Roll holds him off as much as possible while MegaMan is repaired. FlashMan admits to being amused by her, but easily defeats her. Just as she is about to be deleted, MegaMan arrives and a Soul Unison is activated. Using Roll Soul, FlashMan is defeated.
When Meddy appears, it becomes apparent to Roll that she has also taken an interest in Mega, forming a love triangle and inciting Roll's jealousy. The two start as rivals for Mega's affections, but eventually their rivalry expands to other fields as well.
Notably, Roll and Maylu gain the ability to Cross Fuse. However, it appears as though their compatibility isn't as strong as the other members, which leads Mr. Famous to suggest that they use the Rush Synchro Chip to bypass this limitation.
She continues to make appearances in Beast+. It could be possible that after the series ends she lives out the rest of her life with Maylu, Lan, and MegaMan.
