Hutch is a following companion exclusive to the Caves of Don't Starve Together. He functions similarly to Chester and has almost identical stats, including a life regeneration of 22.5 Health every 3 seconds, designed to regenerate its full life in a minute (2 segments).

Similar to Chester, and Packim Baggims, Hutch can transform depending on his current inventory. Unlike other portable inventory followers, Hutch does not consume the materials on transformation. He will also emit light if one or more Light Bulbs or Glow Berries are stored within him. These Light Bulbs will not be consumed and will spoil at their normal rate. Similar to Chester and the Eye Bone, he is summoned with and will follow Star-Sky.

Fugu Hutch[edit | edit source]

Fugu Hutch is a special version of Hutch. If a Light Bulb/Glow Berry and a Spear/Battle Spear are stored in it, Hutch will turn into Fugu Hutch. In this state, anything that attacks Hutch receives 30 damage. Hutch will remain in this form until the spear loses all durability or is removed.

Music Box Hutch[edit | edit source]

Music Box Hutch is a special version of Hutch. By placing a Light Bulb/Glow Berry and a One-man Band in his inventory, he will transform into Music Box Hutch, who provides a positive Sanity aura until the One-man Band's durability is used up.
