Ford states that he wants to keep an eye on Raz, and that he'll be a "psychic stowaway" in Raz's "noggin".
When using the Bacon, Ford will pop his head out of Raz's ear during then he will be able to ask him various things: a hint on what Raz is supposed to do, how to defeat an enemy, and once Raz buys a PSI Energy Colorizer he will allow Raz to change the color of his various psychic powers. Also, he can teleport Raz back to his cave, even if Raz is in a mental world. This will not work past "The Point of No Return".
- If Raz takes out the Bacon when Raz is in Ford's Sanctuary, Ford will say, "Now, don't go pulling that out when I'm physically nearby, or I'm telling you, I'm gonna eat it!"
- The above also happens if Raz takes out the bacon while in a training session for the merit badges Invisibility, Telekinesis, or Pyrokinesis.
- When Raz takes it out in his sanctuary, Raz can run around with the Bacon in his hand. This is the only place where Raz can do this.
- In the Steam version only, there is an achievement for using the bacon many times.
- If Bacon is used next to one of Ford's "disguises" around the camp, Raz will ask Ford how he can be in 2 places at once.
Bacon is shown in a trailer for Psychonauts 2.
