The King of Fighters XIII/Systems/Defensive Actions: Guard Cancel Rolling
Guard Cancel Rolling
At the expense of one power stock, you can choose to cancel your guard into a roll by pressing + . Unlike normal rolls, this roll is completely invincible to attacks and throws from the very start to the very end. This technique is much safer than a Guard Cancel Blowback, as it cannot be countered at all. Your opponent is also halted for a bit while its being performed. Even if your opponent anticipates it, the best he or she can do is set up a meaty attack as soon as you recover from the roll.
By default, you roll backwards, but if you hold forward while performing a Guard Cancel Roll, you roll forward.
