Phrase in other languages
Hamlet is a jock hamster villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and has appeared in all subsequent games. He is the only jock hamster in the series. His name, which comes from the Shakespeare character Prince Hamlet, is a pun on his species. His favorite saying, "The ear's the thing," may reference a line from Prince Hamlet in Hamlet: "the play's the thing."
In New Horizons, Hamlet has the play hobby and can run around with his arms extended at any time, rather than only outside Resident Services during a scripted activity with a group of villagers.
Hamlet is an orange-yellow hamster with tan accents on his mouth, limbs, and belly. He has a brown nose, brown hair on the top of his head, and has rounded ears, with a bright-blue inner coloration.
Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.
As a jock villager, Hamlet is energetic and has an interest in physical fitness and activity. He often talks about exercise or sports and may brag about his physical fitness. While often friendly to the player, he may comment on their fitness. During conversations with other villagers, he generally gets along well with peppy villagers due to their similar hyper personalities and will also get along with smug villagers, while he may offend snooty villagers by critiquing their fitness and annoy cranky villagers with his hyper personality. In New Horizons, Hamlet goes to sleep at 12:30 AM and wakes up at 6:30 AM.
