    And cockiness can fall into either category but generally used synonymous to cheeky.

    Cheeky: "impudent or irreverent, typically in an amusing way."
    Cocky: "conceited or confident in a bold or cheeky way."

    It's one of those things you know when you see it. Cheeky implies a bit of harmless fun while cocky is kind of arrogant xx

    Cheeky: pushing social boundaries, such as being impolite, for the sake of self amusement. If it wasn't self amusing, the person would just come off as an ass.

    Cocky: Arrogant, and possibly a bit cheeky too. I would say a cocky person deliberately exaggerates their sense of self worth (even though they probably do think highly of their self) for their own self amusement. I personally associate an element of self deprication in someone being cocky. When I'm cocky about something, I'll act in a kind of characaturial way, so that some people will get pissed off and others will find it kind of funny.

    Cheeky is somewhat witty. Cocky is just being a prick unless its intentional which is ok as a joke
