"Cheatball."
Game sprite

Cheatball is the 20X6 version of The Cheat. He first appears in the Scrolling Shooter Games Menu. If you pick up the The Cheat-textured "C" pill, your ship becomes a The Cheat-styled fighter, and the game-describing avatar becomes a 20X6 version of The Cheat. His eyes bear a resemblance to the eyes of "Holy-crap-adorable The Cheat" from lady...ing and his facebone has no pointy end, similar to the "cute, fluffy The Cheat" in lady fan. The Cheatball's mouth, unlike other 20X6 characters' mouths, stays small when speaking, and when closed.

Cheatball makes another appearance in trading cards in the form of a trading card character. In this form, he has a round ball-like body with no visible arms or legs, and seems to speak only by saying his name, much like a Pokémon species. He uses an attack called "Poison Rain Vornado", which is basically a small explosion of green smoke.

The spaceship

In the DVD commentary for japanese cartoon, The Brothers Chaps point out that the spaceship seen in the email was originally going to be the 20X6 version of The Cheat, and ponder that maybe they should still use it as the 20X6 version of The Cheat. This may be a reference to Tenchi Muyo!'s Ryo-Ohki, a cabbit that could turn into a spaceship.
