Hutch Danglefish, P.I.


Hutch (Short for Hutch Danglefish, P.I.) is a following companion exclusive to the Caves of Don't Starve Together. Players can store up to nine stacks of Items inside him. He functions similarly to Chester and has almost identical stats, including a regeneration of 22.5 Health every 3 seconds, designed to regenerate its full life in a minute (2 segments). Similar to Chester and the Eye Bone, he is summoned with and will follow Star-Sky.

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. Hutch will not leave the caves to go to the surface, and will instead wait for you in the caves where you left him.

Spear.png Fugu Hutch[edit | edit source]

Fugu Hutch is a special version of Hutch. If both a Light Bulb or Glow Berry and a Spear or Battle Spear are stored inside him, 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/Light loses all durability or is removed.

One-man Band.png Music Box Hutch[edit | edit source]

Music Box Hutch is a special version of Hutch. By placing both a Light Bulb or Glow Berry and a One-man Band in his inventory, he will transform into Music Box Hutch, providing a positive Sanity aura of +40/min until the One-man Band's durability is used up (up to 3 minutes).
