PlotEdit

Human Monster SagaEdit

Monster Raid ArcEdit

Awakened Cockroach alongside the Monster Association, attacked C-City. He defeated 3 heroes and encounters Genos and warns him that he is strong.[3]

During the fight with Genos, Awakened Cockroach maintains superiority, blocking or dodging every attack by Genos, while sending out his own attacks, outmaneuvering the cyborg with his speed. Awakened Cockroach has the upper hand until Genos decides to use instant adhesive to trap the monster, which was originally meant for use against speedster villains like Speed-o'-Sound Sonic. However before Genos could kill the monster, Awakened Cockroach sacrifices his feet to get away.[4]

Enhanced Senses: Awakened Cockroaches's senses are far beyond the norm. According to him, even if his opponent could attack at the speed of light, he/she still would not be able to hit him because his body developed a sixth sense; being able to sense killing intent and dodges attacks on its own in advance.[5]
