Once spawned, Chester will continue to follow the player as long as the Eye Bone is in their inventory. The Eye Bone can be dropped on the ground or placed inside Chester to make him stop following the player.
At night or in the ruins, Chester will sleep until enough distance separates him and the Eye Bone. If Chester is killed, he will drop all stored items, and the Eye Bone will no longer blink (it remains closed). The eyelid will reopen after Chester respawns in one day.
Splumonkeys will not steal the Eye Bone and Eyeplants will not eat it. Krampus can only steal the Eye Bone if it is in a Backpack. The Eye Bone cannot be teleported with the player via Wooden Thing (it will turn to Ashes upon arrival to the next world).
- Chester and the Eye Bone were added in the Spoiled Rotten update.
- An Eye Bone spawned via Console will only spawn Chester one time.
- It is possible that Chester is an allusion to The Luggage from Terry Pratchett's Discworld franchise.
