The Cockroaches (compromised of Joey, Marky, and Dee Dee) are the overall main antagonists of the series. Though in some cases, they play as the villain protagonists or even anti-heroes of the episode..

The cockroaches as seen in the episode High Flyers.


For a more in depth description of each Cockroach, see: Joey, Marky and Dee Dee's pages.

The Cockroaches love causing chaos wherever they go. They seem to enjoy watching people suffer, whether be simply humiliating them or outright torturing them. The Cockroaches seem to lack any kind of moral standard; They willfully commit crimes on a near-daily basis with no remorse whatsoever. This is most prominently shown in "Soldier for a Day" where they accidentally destroy the entire world along with everyone but show no regret in doing so.

Their relationship with Oggy is very odd. They have no sympathy for him and they laugh every single time they witness Oggy being put through all degrees of pain. The Cockroaches practically live off on Oggy's suffering, with nearly every episode in the series involving them trying to ruin Oggy's life in some new degrading way. Despite this however, they secretly need him in their lives. In "Copy Cat", when Oggy seemingly gives up on his life, the Cockroaches begin to grow bored of their own lives and attempt to spice it up again with a robotic clone of Oggy. And just like Oggy, they begin to lose their minds without each other after time passes. In "Moving Out", the Cockroaches are at first ecstatic upon finding out that Oggy has moved out, passing it off as a joke. However, when they find out that he is truly gone, both Marky and Dee Dee begin to go insane without him, crushing themselves repeatedly with Oggy's fly swatter just to relive their memories together. When Joey finds out the location of Oggy's new home, they do everything in their power to reunite with him (which horribly fails).

The Cockroaches also show a deep sense of family. As abrasive as they are, they truly care about each other (Caviar on the House! being the most notable example) and in "Roachy Redneck", they're extremely happy to see their cousin visiting them.


Note: This only counts weaknesses that apply to all 3 of them.

  • Their small size often makes them easier to attack.
  • They can get caught up in their own amusement, leaving them vulnerable for attack as they completely forget about their surroundings. ("The Neighbor's Cat", for example)

  • They are very likely named after the band members of The Ramones, continuing the musical-related (and rock genre-related) theme naming (as Oggy is confirmed (by Marc du Pontavice) to be named after punk rock musician Iggy Pop, and the rock album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars).
  • Overall, the Cockroaches have the highest amount of losses compared to everyone else.
