Hamlet is a jock, hamster villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appears in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. His name refers to his appearance as a small hamster, and is named after the Shakespeare character of the same name. His picture quote is an allusion to Prince Hamlet's quote, "The play's the thing." Hamlet's Japanese name is a portmanteau of "Hamster" and -suke, a common Japanese boys' name suffix.

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.

Hamlet has a jock personality, which means he often will talk about sports and athleticism with others. Jocks normally talk about working out, and if they are camping, Jocks often say they were running and running and ended up in the player's town. He will get along well with the player and most other villagers. He will not get along with, and is offended by, lazy villagers, since they oppose his sporty lifestyle and like their couch-potato lifestyle more.
