Cheese or cheesing in video games refers to methods of overcoming obstacles such as defeating enemies/bosses or solving puzzles with as little difficulty as possible. This can range from just using a very specific strategy during the fight to setting up elaborate processes of using glitches, special equipment or stat leveling, often rendering enemies completely defenseless or in a state where they can do no significant damage to the player character.

Examples include using very strong spells like Dark Bead in Dark Souls coupled with damage increasing equipment and effects to defeat bosses like Priscilla, Pinwheel and Ceaseless Discharge before they can even attack once, and using the TearDrop glitch in Dark Souls III to get under the boss arena of Aldrich, Devourer of Gods without triggering the boss encounter normally, where the player can attack and kill Aldrich without his AI ever engaging.
