"Cheatball."

Cheatball is the 20X6 version of The Cheat. He first appears in the Scrolling Shooter Games Menu. 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 also appeared in trading cards as a trading card character, in which 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 character. He uses an attack called "Poison Rain Vornado", which is basically a small explosion of green smoke. 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 mulled over whether to keep it that way.
