Roller is a character that appears in the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog television series. He was a Badnik who served as a part of Dr. Robotnik's Or Else Protection Service until he was destroyed by Sonic the Hedgehog.


Roller is a humanoid yellow-green lizard-like robot about half a head taller than Sonic the Hedgehog. Having a fairly round and large torso, he has a flat head with a sharp nose, an olive-colored face, a fairly long neck, and two long, backward-pointing horns. He also has orange slit-like pupils and a short tail. For attire, he wears a majorelle blue suit, a white shirt with a red tie, and black and white shoes.


Serving in the Dr. Robotnik's Or Else Protection Service, Roller and his partner Ball Hog bullied Mobius Corners' residents into paying them to not destroy their business, turning the town into a dangerous place. When they came to Bert's Diner to threaten Bert Whoo, Roller destroyed a wall when Bert refused to pay. However, Sonic the Hedgehog, who was at the diner, retaliated by deviously messing up Roller and getting him out. When Roller returned, he and Ball Hog got blown up by Ball Hog's own bomb.[1]


After the threat of Robotnik had passed, Tails used Roller and Ball Hog's remains to built a waiter for Bert's Diner, allowing the waitress Roxy to work as Bert's partner.[1]


Roller was cruel and rotten, showing open delight in strong-arming the innocent. He did not take kindly to insults and displayed a short temper. Like many of Robotnik's other badniks, he was also rather gullible, falling easily for Sonic's disguises.[1]
