Cockroaches are communal creatures, rarely setting out on their own unless they are searching for food. If an adventurer encounters a single giant cockroach while exploring, they had best take precautions against others, as there is likely an entire colony nearby.

Beyond the common giant cockroach, other flesh-eating cockroaches exist throughout the world. These variations include the giant hissing cockroach, the noxious venomroach, the huge spitting cockroach (which can incapacitate enemies from a distance), the aggressive sawback cockroach, and the mysterious and rare dragonroach.
