The Cheat's first appearance as Firebert
A bad commando name
Firebert is The Cheat's commando name. He insists on being called this whenever he goes on a commando mission for Strong Bad. As seen, his Cheat Commando uniform consists of a black two-piece stealth suit with a black snow cap over the top corner of his head. Both Strong Bad and Gunhaver, however, think it's a terrible commando name. The Cheat provides the voice for the character Firebert in the Cheat Commandos Adventures cartoon show, in which he makes The Cheat noises, while the other commandos speak in English. (Curiously, Strong Bad spoke normally when playing with the Firebert character in the Cheat Commandos commercial, instead of imitating The Cheat.) He seems to be the demolitions expert, as evidenced in the original commercial, where he blew up a large cliff, with Blue Laser operatives directly below it. In Shopping for Danger, Gunhaver assigns him to think of a better commando name. Despite this, Flashfight thinks it is an "exquisite commando name" and wishes not to fire him, lest the name go to waste.

Strong Bad owns the Firebert action figure. Firebert is one of the Cheat Commandos featured in the first Cheat Commandos figurine set. In the email more armies, The Cheat makes a public appearance as Firebert at the "Vaguely Military Career Fair" next to a sign that reads "Meet TV's Firebert". After some time with no visitors, he dejectedly changes "Firebert" to "Trogdor", which immediately draws a large crowd.
