The Gockroach S is a cockroach-like enemy robot primarily found in Junk Man's stage from Mega Man 7 and the first stage of the Wily Fortress that are featured in Mega Man Maker since its 1.4.0 version update. Gockroach S is equipped with wings and powerful legs that give it a lot of mobility. It has the ability to stick to, and walk on walls and ceilings for a short time, and using their wings can fly for very brief periods of time. It is also very short, making it potentially hard to hit them with frontal standard shots of the buster or other weapons similar to it.

Despite otherwise having collision with walls, it ignores collision with any Gockroach S Nest, regardless of whether the Gockroach S was spawned from it or not. When reaching the edges of a platform, it sticks there.

A Gockroach S Nest is a small nest made by the Gockroach S out of trash and junk that is featured in Mega Man Maker as of its 1.4.0 update. It serves as a Spawner for Gockroaches S with it continuously spawning and coming out of them until it is destroyed. When a pair of eyes appears in the darkness of the nest's opining it is an indication a Gockroach S is about to spawn. When a nest is finally destroyed by most weapons, one final Gockroach S will immediately spawn in its place. Gockroach Nests can also act as solid obstacles, preventing the Player character and most enemies from passing through them as well as allowing them to walk on top of them. They can have Push Blocks over it without being destroyed, although the Goackroches S are vulnerable to being crushed by it.

This Nest does not respond to gravity or to moving platforms and could be created as a floating 2x2 solid platform.

The Gockroach S Nest can be trapped inside a bubbled Danger Wrap, although this was not possible in Mega Man 7. If the Nest is destroyed in this way, the Gockroach S does not spawn, but it will if it is destroyed with the unbubbled bombs.

Trivia

  • Since the Gockroach S and its nest come from the 16-bit game Mega Man 7, they lack official 8-bit sprites. As a result, the sprites used in Mega Man Maker were custom-made by CosmicGem.
  • The Gockroach S and its nest were revealed in the Mega Man Maker one year anniversary announcement video showcasing Mega Man 7 assets to be added in version 1.4.0.[1]
  • The Gockroach S nest is the only enemy spawner as of 1.6.3 that are not called spawners in-game.
