― Hamlet, New Horizons

+Hamlet Gallery

Hamlet (ハムスケ, Hamusuke?) is a jock hamster villager who first appears in New Leaf. His English and Japanese names start the same way as "hamster", his species. His name may refer to Shakespeare's famous play, "Hamlet." His picture quote further supports this, as one of the characters in the play is poisoned through their ear. He appears on the album cover for I Love You. He has the play hobby.


Hamlet in New Leaf.

Hamlet has yellow fur, a brown tuft of hair on his head, and half-closed, tired looking black eyes. The insides of his ears are teal. He initially wears a star shirt. Like the other hamsters, he is one of the shortest villager types.


Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.

Hamlet has a jock personality and has a great interest in sports and bodybuilding. Jock villagers are hyperactive and motivated but often come across as egotistical and dense. As a jock villager, Hamlet is very interested in his hobby, and may compete against the player at catching bugs and fish. Jock villagers get along with peppy, cranky and sisterly villagers, but conflict with the laid-back lifestyle of lazy villagers. Snooty villagers may also be difficult to get along with for Hamlet.


New Leaf

Hamlet's home has a slight playroom theme, he also owns a few items from the Stripe Series. He owns a gyroid, the Mega Drilloid, and a star globe. He also owns the Stripe Table, the Stripe Closet, and the Stripe Bed. Supporting his playroom theme, Hamlet owns an Elephant Slide, and some bowling pins, as well as a Kiddie Stereo, which plays K.K. Reggae. His wallpaper is the Playroom Wall, and his flooring is the Sloppy Carpet.

New Horizons

Hamlet's home is again a playroom theme with various Wooden-Block crafted pieces. He uses a Race Car Bed, and now owns a Wooden Block Stereo. A green Toy Chest can be seen, along with a Puzzle Flooring.
