Cheato, Banjo-Kazooie

Cheato is the magical spell book of Gruntilda. His main role is to provide Cheat Codes for Banjo and Kazooie to use against Gruntilda in the first two games.



In Banjo-Kazooie, Cheato provides three cheat codes to Banjo and Kazooie: BLUE EGGS, RED FEATHERS, and GOLD FEATHERS. He provides the cheats to them if they can find his hiding spot in Gruntilda's Lair.

  • BLUE EGGS - Near the Freezeezy Peak puzzle, Banjo must enter a tunnel as a crocodile after destroying the ice block.
  • RED FEATHERS - In the lava room, follow the small winding path to a small tunnel as the pumpkin.
  • GOLD FEATHERS - In the Rusty Bucket Bay entrance room, raise the water level to 3 and then make it to the alcove before time runs out.


In Banjo-Tooie, Gruntilda has carried out her threat of ripping out Cheato's pages for giving cheats to Banjo and Kazooie in the previous game. Banjo and Kazooie must find his missing pages and return them to him so that he can provide them with more cheat codes. For every five pages that are found, Cheato will give Banjo and Kazooie one cheat. The cheats can only be activated in the Code Room of Mayahem Temple.


In Banjo-Pilot, Cheato has lost his pages again. The player can acquire them from finish races, and return them to Cheato in exchange for unlockable characters and features.

“Hapless page-shedding spellbook, mistreated minion of Grunty and veteran of the Banjo-Kazooie series. Returning Cheato's pages tended to earn unlockable items or, surprisingly, cheat codes.”
