The Roll Up transformation as it appears in Kirby's Epic Yarn

Roll Up[1] is a yarn transformation in Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn that can be achieved by both Kirby and Prince Fluff. When the 1 button is held down, Kirby or Prince Fluff will automatically transform into a shape similar to a spinning top while wrapping up enemies, Cloth Blocks, or spools of string after grabbing the object with their Yarn Whip. This action will transform the target into a Yarn ball, which can have various properties based on what the target was. Buttonbees, for example, will roll into a ball that releases three targeting projectiles when thrown.[2]

In Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn, performing this action while using the Knitting Needles Ravel Ability will cause Kirby to create extra large yarn balls.
