* In ''Videogame/TheSims1'' and ''Videogame/TheSims2'', cockroaches appear on untidy lots and are very upsetting to Sims, who may cry, freak out, and/or stamp all over them if they encounter them. Averted in ''Videogame/TheSims3'', in which roaches are just collectible bugs and don't cause histrionics.

** The Giant Cave Cockroaches are another popular pets for bug enthusiasts due to being non-invasive species and easy handling, they mulch dead forest matter too. The white-ish color and round appearance make them qualify as CreepyCute.
