Roaches are small passive mobs.


Natural generation

Roaches spawn on grass blocks at light levels of 9 or more with at least 2 block space above. They often spawn in groups of 4 during world generation.

Roaches are 0.3 blocks long and 0.1 blocks tall.


Roaches drop 1–3 experience when killed by a player or tamed wolf.


Roaches wander and fly around aimlessly, usually avoiding falling off cliffs high enough to cause damage, and usually staying out of water. They also flee from the player when approached. 

Although being rather small, roaches bear similar characteristics to other insects, with a few traits such as being able to climb up solid blocks.
