The '''Melmacian Cockroach''' is a blue-eyed insect commonly found on planet [[Melmac]]. Although naturally tiny, they can grow to the size of a Human, or even bigger, when exposed to certain earthly chemicals, including boric acid.

==History==
 
   
 
After Melmac was destroyed, a Melmacian Roach, named [[Rodney]] by [[Gordon Shumway|ALF]] and [[Brian Tanner|Brian]], escaped to Earth in [[ALF's spaceship]] (in a bag containing a [[slimeball]]) and became huge and aggressive after the [[Tanner family|Tanners]]' attempts to kill it. Eventually, ALF discovers a substance that is lethal to the Cockroach: perfume.

Since Melmac no longer exists, it's possible that Rodney was the last member of his species, meaning the Melmacian Cockroaches are now extinct.

It is unknown what the cockroach would have done to ALF if ALF had lost the battle in the bathroom. It does seem that the Cockroach chases ALF throughout the house, as the cockroach had perfect following steps to find where ALF went.
 
 
The Melmacian Cockroach is a parody of the Xenomorph from the famous film ''Alien'' and the giant white shark from the Steven Spielberg film ''Jaws.'' Both ''Alien ''and ''Jaws'' follow the plot of humans trying to attack a giant creature that is stalking them and is not seen until the endnig.
 
 
==Status==
 
Melmacian Cockroaches grow upon the usage of acid & other materials used in bug spray. Upon the usage of such chemicals, the cockroach can grow large. ALF described that they started out with a cockroach an inch long & Kate sprayed it & a minute later, it could wear a sweater & when Willie sprayed it again, the cockroach grew larger which freaked out Willie & the [[Pop's Pest Control|exterminator]]. Trevor then sprayed the house, causing the cockroach to become a giant monster, which nearly ate ALF. The only substance toxic to these species is perfume!
