* In an extremely rare, but nonetheless terrifying protagonistic example, Kyouhukou in ''LightNovel/Overlord2012'' is a 30 centimeter tall cockroach king (complete with ornate crown, scepter, and cape), who commands millions of his subjects to act as an [[BossRoom Area Guardian]] of the Great Tomb of Nazerick. In volume seven, two adventurers are led through a trap into his quarters, to which he responds by regally answering their questions, then chuckling upon their attempt to negotiate freedom before finally [[FauxAffablyEvil having his subjects]] [[DevouredByTheHorde eat them alive.]]

* The monstrous antagonist in the {{Spider Man}} graphic novel ''Hooky'' is something Mandy calls a "Tordenkakerlak" (Norwegian for "thunder cockroach"). Initially, it does appear as a giant - flying! - roach, but once Spidey manages to squish it, it turns into a [[SequentialBoss series of larger, more powerful monsters]], which aren't roach-like at all.
* ComicBook/HowardTheDuck had a foe called [[http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix/cockroac.htm the Cockroach]] in his second series, an ordinary roach who became a man-sized humanoid after exposure to [[ArtifactOfDoom the Cosmic Key]]. His EvilPlan was to use the Key to create an army of roach-men like himself to TakeOverTheWorld, but was outsmarted by Howard who trapped him with giant flypaper, doused him with industrial strength insecticide; after the Key was confiscated, he was he was [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice skewered by a bladed walking stick]] thrown by Howard's ally R. L. Haney, and was presumed dead. (He was not, [[LongBusRide but he has yet to return]].)
