The heaviest species of cockroach, the giant burrowing cockroach, can weigh up to 35 grams and can grow up to 8 cm long.
Powers and Stats
Origin: The Real World
Gender: Varies; can be male or female
Age: Varies; American cockroaches can live from 3 months to 2 years. Giant burrowing cockroaches can potentially live for 10 years.
Classification: Insect, Blattodea
Powers and Abilities: Small Size (Type 2), Surface Scaling, Self-Sustenance (Types 1 and 2; cockroaches can go a month without food and can survive on limited resources; cockroaches can go 45 minutes without air), Fragrance Manipulation (pest species of cockroaches can leave behind an offensive odor), Stealth Mastery (Even though there are no visible signs of cockroaches in the house, there is a 20-48% chance of finding cockroach allergens in dust, implying that cockroaches are excellent hiders), Regeneration (Low-Mid as nymphs; American cockroach nymphs can regenerate lost limbs), Resistance to Cold (Some species are able to survive temperatures down to −122 °C by making an antifreeze made of glycerol) and Radiation (Can survive 6-15x the radiation humans can handle), Limited Flight
Attack Potency: Below Average level (Pest species of cockroach are opportunistic feeders. Cockroaches bite with a force 50x greater than their own body weight and have 5x the relative strength of a human bite)
Speed: Below Average Human (The fastest recorded speed of an American cockroach was 5.4 km/h)
Lifting Strength: Below Average Human
Striking Strength: Below Average Class
Durability: Below Average level
Stamina: Extremely high (Can go 45 minutes without air, survive for a month without eating, and live for 9 days without their heads)
Range: Below Standard Melee Range (millimeters)
Standard Equipment: Their tiny maws
Intelligence: Cockroaches are capable of collective decision-making on where to find food, how to exploit food sources, and where to hide.
