A Comeon (originally known as a Chester) is an enemy disguised as a treasure box that appears in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Inside the chest (hence the original name) is its body, which resembles a tan Ameboid. It is one of the various enemies Wizakoopa creates and can be found in one of the Trial Course's two battle courses in Bowser's Keep.

A Comeon is the most powerful member of the Huhwhat family, sporting the highest stats in all areas, although despite its attack stat being among the highest of all enemies at 220, the Comeon uses only magic, so its Ameboid body is never revealed in-game. It also shares Ameboid's immunity to all elemental attacks and status effects except Jump, which it is weak to. It follows a predictable attack pattern: Its first action in battle is to summon a Bahamutt, followed by using Sand Storm on its next turn, and then using either Mega Recover to heal or Flame Wall to damage the party. The odds of each are 2/3 in favor of Mega Recover and 1/3 in favor of Flame Wall. The Comeon's pattern then restarts. If the previous Bahamutt is defeated, however, it creates another Bahamutt. It may also use Flame Stone to inflict Fire damage to one character.

A friendly Comeon can be found in the upper room inside Monstermama's house in Monstro Town. It tells Mario how many Hidden Treasures that remain yet to be discovered; collecting them all prompts it to say, "Wow, you found them all."
