Strong Bad and The Cheat's relationship is a mix of several feelings. Officially, The Cheat is Strong Bad's lackey, and while they often work together, they're not always kind. Sometimes, Strong Bad hurts The Cheat, both emotionally and physically. Sometimes, The Cheat betrays Strong Bad and works with someone else, at Strong Bad's expense. However, Strong Bad is generally nice to The Cheat.
