The Roachester is a boss fought in Chrono Cross. They are a large insect that inhabits the underground sewers of Viper Manor.

Battle and Strategy[edit | edit source]

They primarily use the Blue elemental BugKamikaze (single target) and JitterBug (multi-target) techs for large amounts of physical damage. The latter is particularly dangerous as it hits all party members. They mix this up with physical attacks where they either attack twice or thrice - the latter type can be quite powerful so watch your HP.

When the Roachester runs low on HP, it quits using its powerful Bug techs, so aggressively lower its HP using physical attacks the most potent elements (preferably Red) in your arsenel to defeat this foe.

Bugged(?) Tech[edit | edit source]

According to the Chrono Cross Ultimania guide, they use the Blue elemental tech ColdBreath on a single target, which does a modest amount of magic damage and inflicts Poison. It probably won't be necessary to worry about this tech as they almost never use it however - in fact, it might be bugged and not actually in the game.
