Cheap Icon in Street Fighter X Tekken.

Cheap!! is a term used in some games of Street Fighter series, such as the Street Fighter Alpha, Street Fighter EX and Street Fighter IV series, when a character is knocked out by chip damage. For example, a player has 1% health left and guards against an opponent's special attack or Super Combo, and the chip damage from the move is enough to knock out the opponent. This victory would fall under Cheap!!. In the Alpha series, the icon for "cheap" victories is a piece of cheese, and in the EX series, it is an eaten apple. In Alpha 3 and the IV series, it is a "C" letter.

Cheap!! can also be executed in other games such as Marvel vs. Capcom and Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, as well as Darkstalkers 3.
