Biology: Believed to be a result of one of the many nuclear bomb tests performed in the deserts of the American Southwest, Cucharoch was suddenly transformed from an ordinary roach to an enormous behemoth. In terms of behavior and physiology, Cucharoch is much like its mundane relatives, though the magnified spikes on its body do make it a bit more lethal than the average pest.
Cucharoch’s powers include:
- Super strength
- An enhanced healing factor
- Immunity to radiation
- Skin-irritating powder spray
Personality: A timid scavenger by nature, Cucharoch isn’t particularly well suited to the rough and tumble world of its fellow giants. When faced with any sort of threat, the roach’s first instinct is to retreat to a safe hiding place and wait out the danger. It cowardly nature has won it little respect among other kaiju, and humanity has likewise written off the roach as a minor threat at best.
However, what few have learned is that Cucharoch is a very loyal friend to the rare creatures who treat it kindly, and while the insect may not be very brave in defending itself, it can show surprising courage when coming to an ally’s aid. The only thing it fears more than being hurt is losing a friend, and when Cucharoch actually chooses to fight rather than flee it can be a surprisingly tough opponent.
Though smaller than most kaiju, Cucharoch is also significantly faster than its fellow titans, and can use its spiky body and nasty jaws to deliver some very painful attacks. Cucharoch is also freakishly durable, surviving blows that would slay most kaiju. The few monsters that have actually been attacked by the roach quickly learn that not all cowards are weak.
