Ok kinda stupid noobish question but anyway; let's say I spawn the Wither in the Overworld and I fail to kill it. Will it despawn if I leave the area or will it keep roaming my world destroying everything?

Instead of asking, why not try and see for yourself?

First of all, as it is a boss mob, I don't think it will despawn when you leave a certain radius, but I may be wrong.

I remember watching some Youtuber (maybe Sethbling? Can't remember...) making a clock using the boss health bar, and using it as a meassure of time in an adventure map, so... I don't think it despawns.
Anyway, I don't play snapshots, so if someone who does comment, that would help a lot more than I do.

I don't run snapshots too, that's why I'm asking.

Well I better back up my world if I decide to take on the Wither huh? :P

I'm playing the snapshot now, it's really stable.  But I don't play with creatures that can eat me for lunch.

I love the idea of the Wither flying away endlessly spawning new chunks only to blast them to oblivion.  Your game file would grow and grow, but you haven't seen him in weeks.  But no, it's unlikely.  Either he circles around and comes back to eat you or he despawns, I'm sure.

Or maybe it could freeze when it enters an ungenerated chunk, and resume moving when you generate it.

Despawns when you deload the chuck, as of 12w40a. (too lazy to get 41)

I have discovered a truly remarkable proof of this, which this margin is too small to contain.

Oh thank god!

I'll probably never create the hellspawn but still it's good to know it despawns...

The Ender Dragon just becomes still when far away, because I've seen it happen. I think Withers will do the same.
My parkour map. Do you have the skill?
