Cheese is a Chao owned by Cream the Rabbit, hailing with her to Earth from an unnamed planet in a parallel dimension[note 1] in the anime series Sonic X and its comic series published by Archie Comics. He always follows Cream and the only word he can say is Chao.
Cheese once became Cream's friend, and they partnered up with Sonic, Tails, Amy and Knuckles. Once they were kidnapped by Doctor Eggman, Sonic tried to rescue them, only to have Chaos Control activate, sending them to Earth, and scatter the Chaos Emeralds across the planet. They were then imprisoned by G.U.N., but were rescued by Sonic and Tails.
After all of them joining up (with the exception of Knuckles, who went solo in "Missile Wrist Rampage"), they help battle Doctor Eggman whenever he caused trouble and havoc to the world and live with Christopher Thorndyke and the Thorndyke family. At the end of Season 2, Cheese and Cream go home, and later help Sonic, Cosmo and the rest of the gang battle the Metarex in Season 3. After Cosmo sacrifices herself, they fail to see Chris go home and declare war on Eggman.
Cheese enjoys playing with Chao, feeling home when being around them and feels sad when not being around them. This is especially the case when Tikal offered Cheese the opportunity to live with her and the other Chao in order to stay with Cream.
Powers and Abilities
Like other Chao, Cheese can use his wings for flight, allowing him to fly in midair. Cheese is also strong for his small size; for example, he can hold relatively heavy objects like baseballs bats. Also, he can perform a powerful punching attack with Cream which can defeat some robots.
- In the Japanese version of "Defective Detectives", during the actual end credits (they play during the episode as well), Cheese replaces Amy in the Hikaru Michi ending. During the episode as the credits are shown while Team Chaotix were recaping Sonic X, the ending song begins then it skips to Cheese.
- In the Archie Comics, Cheese was referred to as a female in Issue 5. During the remainder of the series though, Cheese's gender was re-justified to a male.
- In the Japanese version of Sonic X, there is one episode where instead of Sonic meeting Amy in the Hikaru Michi ending, Cheese is there instead. He even looks up at Sonic like Amy does when Sonic finds them.
- ↑ The world where Cheese comes from is not named in the anime and comics. The comics state, though, that Cheese and his friends traveled across dimensions on a parallel planet, Earth.
