Chests are blocks used to store items and other materials. In very rare instances, chests can also occur inside of walls and under floors in dungeons. The contents of these chests are similar to those of normal un-hidden chests. When chests occur in strongholds, they are surrounded by stone slabs and stone bricks.

Triple Chests

It's possible to make triple chests by using the command /setblock. However, performing this action will cause a little bug in the chest inventory that will cause the normal inventory to (where one carries their items when they don't have space for the 9-slot inventory) become glitched, which can make the selection buggy.

To perform these actions, stand beside a double chest and use the command: /setblock ~ ~ ~ chest.

To access a triple chest, one must select the middle part of the chest. Opening a triple chest by clicking on either the left or right chests will cause the chest inventory to look like a normal double chest inventory.

For some reason, triple chests do not look like a real triple chest. They look like normal double chests. Even though one can still select it, one cannot select the third chest that they've placed.

Usage

A small chest has 27 slots of inventory space, and a double chest has 54 slots. A chest cannot be opened if there is an opaque block above it, nor can a chest be opened while an Ocelot or cat is sitting on them.

A chest can be added to a donkey, a mule, or a llama. A chest attached to a donkey or mule has only 15 slots, and a chest attached to a llama has anywhere from 3 to 15 slots depending upon its "Strength" value.

Piglins become hostile towards players who open or mine chests.

Chests can be placed under Note Blocks to produce the "bass" sound.

Mining

A Chest can be harvested with any tool or by hand, but an axe is the fastest.

Trivia

  • On April 1, 2011, Mojang implemented a practical joke by placing chests that glow and that when clicked, it would say that players would need a "Steve Key", but players wouldn't be able to buy it and they kept buying until they got a certain amount of money. When the amount of money was reached, a windows sign would pop up saying "If you are prone to seizures, press cancel!"
    • Pressing okay on the pop up will make the screen flash multiple colors very quickly.
  • Between December 24–26, single chests look like small red presents, and large chests look like large green presents. The same goes for Ender Chests and Trapped Chests.
  • When naming a chest, the name will display where it says 'Chest.'
  • The texture for the chest is one of the few textures in the game that did not change during 1.14 - Village and Pillage
  • It is possible to make triple chests by using the command /setblock.
    • However, performing this action will cause a little bug in the chest inventory that will cause the normal inventory to (where one carries their items when they don't have space for the 9-slot inventory) become glitched, which can make the selection buggy.
  • The Chest has never had its texture changed, however it has had its model changed.
