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

Holden Gallery

Holden (のりぼう, Noribō?) is a jock hamster villager introduced in the Welcome amiibo update. Holden's RV contains several exclusive furniture from the Fueki series, along with the high-spirits clothing set.

He was exclusive to Japan, where his RV could be invited via the campground's Wi-Fi option from February 1st, 2017 to May 1st, 2017. However, although his furniture could be ordered, he could not be invited to live in the town. His favorite saying is "You can solve any problem if you just stick to it!"


Holden is a yellow hamster with white paws. He has eyes like Fueki and wears a red cap on his head. Strangely, he seems to have eyelashes protruding from his irises instead of his eyelids. This may just be intended to be part of his iris design. His design, along with his respective furniture and clothing, is based on the Japanese company known as Fueki cosmetics.


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 self-centered 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 design and his exclusive furniture are based on a collaboration with Fueki (フエキ) cosmetics in Japan.[1]
  • There is no legitimate way to obtain Holden's picture frame. The player can only get it through hacking their 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.
  • He shares his birthday with the lazy cub Pudge. Both of them have June 11th as their birthdays.
  • His name is a reference to the Australian automobile manufacturer Holden, despite the fact that he had nothing to do with said company otherwise.
