EXCLUSIVE: Cheato’s Repercussions

So I’ve been replaying the Xbox LIVE Arcade version of Banjo-Kazooie lately just now finished receiving the last cheat from Cheato. If you recall, each time Cheato grants you a cheat, Gruntilda threatens to punish him and he always responds without a care in the world, insistent that she will never find him. Well… clearly she does. The repercussions of Cheatos betrayal to Gruntilda is felt in Banjo-Tooie when you witness the fact that Grunty had indeed found him and ripped the pages right out of him. Must have been fairly painful for a book, yes?

It has been awhile since I’ve played Banjo-Tooie, so I don’t rightly recall exactly what Cheato tells Banjo and Kazooie when they meet him again at the entrance of Gruntilda’s Lair. I was just playing Banjo-Kazooie and thought it somewhat funny what happens to him for giving away those cheats, especially given his confidence with his seclusion.

Question for you all: Did Cheato deserve to have his pages torn asunder for betraying his owner? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
