Abilities and Powers

One of his special abilities is to summon a myriad of cockroaches both large and small. They will try to kill and torment his targets, with endless attacks that result in physiological disgust.[1] It was considered to be on the level of an unrivaled psychological attack within the Great Tomb of Nazarick.[2]

While so, Shalltear stated that he is supposedly very skilled in summoning others of his species.[3] Kyouhukou could summon around 10,000 to 100,000 of small creatures in large quantities. While he is not very strong in an open area, his powers in an enclosed space was what made him out as being the worst and fearsome opponent for some.

According to the author Maruyama, in the Web Novel, Kyouhukou's special ability is one that allows him to conjure forth an infinite number of gargantuan beings of the same race nonstop.[4] They are not particularly strong. He said these gigantic beings were the size of a 150 centimeter variant with the hardness of a thin iron plate. Their HP isn’t very high. However, ordinary people like villagers can’t possibly win against it. Without persistent use of fire, it would be a stun pit full of them.[5]



Main Equipment

  • Unnamed Scepter: A scepter Kyouhukou uses when he summons more cockroaches.
  • Unnamed Cape: A cape that can be used to block attacks.



  • In the Web Novel, it was said by the author Maruyama that Kyouhukou is level 40 but he supposedly question that estimation shortly thereafter upon considering other NPCs.[7]
  • Kyouhukou was described as a formidable enemy that made enemy Players who invaded Nazarick to hurriedly log-out from entering his lair.[8]
