|~ Cheese's catchphrase|
Cheese the Chao (チーズ Chīzu?) is a character from the Sonic the Hedgehog series.
Cheese is a neutral Chao and the best buddy of Cream the Rabbit and the twin brother of Chocola. He is often used as a method of attack by Cream in the many games they both appear in. Cheese is mostly referred to as male: In Shadow the Hedgehog, Cream asks Shadow to find Cheese in which she says, "You have to find him."
He is a Unique Chao in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, and raises the entire team's luck when bonded to a character depending on his level: at level 1 he increases it by 5, at level 2 by 10, and at level 3 by 15. Cheese is the only Chao in the game that can't be attained from an egg, and is also the only Chao that has significance in a side-quest. Cheese is found in a cave that the player needs to climb to access it.
