Cheato is Grunty's magical spell book, however he is not very loyal to her and gives Banjo and Kazooie cheat codes which help them beat the game.
In Banjo-Kazooie Cheato was hidden in 3 different parts of Gruntilda's Lair, reaching him usually required you to use a Mumbo transformation outside of the level where you were transformed. The 3 cheats he taught you, REDFEATHERS, BLUEEGGS and GOLDFEATHERS which double your carrying capacity for Red and Gold Feathers and Eggs which respectively have to inputted at the sandcastle in Treasure Trove Cove to be activated. In Banjo-Tooie Grunty has ripped out Cheato's pages as a punishment for helping Banjo and Kazooie in the previous game and wants help getting them back. For every 5 pages you return Cheato will tell you one cheat. There are 25 pages in all, making a grand total of 5 cheat codes. Cheato appears as an enlarged exhibit in Banjo-Kazooie:Nuts & Bolts.
The codes that cheato teaches you are:
"FEATHERS", which doubles the max amount of Red and Gold feathers "BLUEEGGS" (also "EGGS" in Banjo-Tooie} , which doubles the max amount of eggs you can hold. "FALLPROOF", which makes you not take any damage from falling. "HONEYBACK", which will cause your health to slowly replenish over time in you are not hit. "XOBEKUJ", which allows you to access the sound test menu in the form of the jukebox in Jolly Roger Lagoon.
The codes must be activated in the code chamber inside the pyramid in Mayhem Temple.
