The giant cockroach, a, is a monster that appears in EvilHack. It has a poisonous bite that weakens constitution, similar to a rabid rat, and can hide under objects.


Giant cockroaches are not randomly generated, and only appear on levels raw sewage forms (rarely in the Gnomish Mines, the Mines End level where the Rat King can be found, and certain unique demon lairs).


Giant cockroaches are small and fast, and can prove an unwelcome surprise for players that have yet to obtain poison resistance.
