"'''Powered by The Cheat'''" toons are [[Flash]] animations created by [[The Cheat]] and his computers, [[Tangerine Dreams]] (2002-2004), [[Monosodium Dreams]] (2006-2014), and [[The Cheat's iMac (2018)|his new iMac]] (2018-present). Many of them are [[Flash]] toons within the [[Homestar Runner universe]]. The toons, which are a parody of the many poorly drawn Flash cartoons on the web, are usually packed with bad animation and [[Powered by The Cheat Character Variations|character depictions]], poor imitations of the characters' voices (provided by [[Mike Chapman]]), vocalised sound effects, and senseless or nonexistent plots.

It is never explained how The Cheat manages to imitate the other characters speaking human language; in all regular toons, The Cheat speaks in his own native "The Cheat" language. In the [[Georgia Tech - 26 Apr 2007|Georgia Tech]] appearance, an audience member asked [[The Brothers Chaps]] a question concerning this, and [[Matt Chapman]] responded in [[Strong Bad]]'s voice, "The guy's got two throats," and that, "he goes into this secret room when he does the voices, so I never see how he does it." He often [[Powered by The Cheat Cameo Appearances|incorporates himself into his cartoons]], sometimes in a [[Wikipedia:List_of_Hitchcock_cameo_appearances|Hitchcock-style cameo]], but usually portraying himself as superior to the other characters or receiving some sort of prize. The Cheat has won five prizes for these cartoons in "real" life, including an [[New Boots|iron cup full of Brunswick Stew]], a [[pizza]] for his "[[Everybody to the Limit]]" music video, the fabled "Pizza [[Trophy]]", a slice of "chinstrap pizza", and another pizza.

These animations show hints of The Cheat's fantasies and possibly insecure personality. The email [[mile]], which The Cheat guest-authored, is an ideal example of what he most desires yet cannot possibly possess. The Cheat shamelessly elevates his status in the eyes of others through praise given by his boss, [[Strong Bad]], while [[Marzipan]] finally gives him the [[Marzipan and The Cheat's Relationship|attention and affection he has been craving]]. However, the two rarely exchange words outside of a fabricated Flash universe, despite having gone on one [[Date Nite|date]] together.

The Cheat has provided animation for other [[Free Country, USA]] artists. He has also collaborated with the likes of [[The Skate Party]], [[They Might Be Giants]], and more.
