This is like a paradise for all these bugs, don't you think?

Holden Gallery

Holden (のりぼう, Noribō?) is a jock hamster villager who is exclusive to Japan, where his RV could be invited to the campground between February 1 to May 1, 2017 as part of a collaboration with Fueki, a company mainly known for their glue and stationery products. During this collaboration, Fueki also made glue pots resembling Isabelle, Digby and K.K. Slider. His furniture can be ordered, but he can't live in the player's town. He shares this distinction with Filly. His favorite saying is "You can solve any problem if you just stick to it!"

His name is likely derived from "holding," as in glue holding things together. His Japanese name means glue stick. His Japanese phrase, norinori, means "high-spirits," while also being a pun on nori, meaning glue.


Holden is a yellow hamster with large blue eyes and white paws. The inside of his ears is a light yellowish brown. His initial clothing is the High-Spirits Shirt, and he also wears a hat resembling the high-spirits hat. His design is based on Fueki's mascot, Fueki-kun, although Fueki-kun himself is a dog.


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

Holden 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, Holden 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 Holden.



Holden's house oddly contains no piece of his Fueki set. He owns an exotic table, a green table, and a grapefruit sidetable. He also owns a cactus, waterbird, tea set, a screen, telescope, a red couch, and an exotic bureau. The retro stereo in his house plays K.K. Samba, and his wallpaper and flooring are the green wall and white wood floor.


  • Holden's design and his exclusive furniture are based on a collaboration with Fueki (フエキ) cosmetics in Japan.
  • There is no legitimate way to obtain Holden's picture frame. You can only get it through hacking your game. The item is listed as unused in game but it has a unique saying, like Filly. Although his picture displays Hamphrey instead.
  • Holden is the only hamster cut from New Horizons.
