The Rockroach is an enemy fought in Chrono Cross. Roackroaches are gargantuan arthropods which are dyed a deep shade of brown. A shell protects their vulnerable insides, and they stand on a set of four mammoth-sized legs. A pair of large, staring eyes are set on the head of the Rockroaches, coupled with pair of pincers for a mouth. Rockroaches can only be found in the Earth Dragon Isle, roaming about the underground caverns lazily. In Home World, Rockroaches have to be pushed into pot-holes found in the sand in order to create sand spouts to carry the party forward into the cavern of the Earth Dragon. They can be trapped in the Forget-Me-Not Pot and added to the pool of Doppelgangs performed by Sprigg.

Battle and Strategy[edit | edit source]

Rockroaches usually appear in pairs, accompanied by at least one YellowBelly. They are also known to sometimes accompany Fossickers into battle as well. Rockroaches attack by using their legs to pummel their foes for heavy amounts of damage. They are also capable of utilizing a very small range of Yellow elements, out of which LoRes is used the most frequently. Rockroaches also possess a unique tech of their own, which is that of SpinOff. SpinOff is used fairly frequently, and involves the Roackroach in question launching itself into the air before spiraling down onto selected targets, dealing heavy damage in the process. On the whole, Rockroaches can prove to be rather formidable foes to fight, as their strength and defense are ridiculously high. It is hence advised for the player to unleash as many offensive elements onto Rockroaches in battle, as said enemies have relatively low magic defenses.

Name Origin[edit | edit source]

The name of this enemy, Rockroach, is a play on the fact that said enemy can only be found in rocky terrain, coupled with the fact that it possesses bug-like qualities.
