Hamphrey is a cranky hamster villager in the Animal Crossing series. His name may be a combination of "Hamster" and the common name "Humphrey". He first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. He is one of the first hamsters in the whole series.



Hamphrey is a black hamster with a blue muzzle, paws and inside ears. His eyebrows make him look cranky, hence his personality. He has a tooth sticking out of his mouth. Hamphrey's initial clothing is the Beige Knit shirt. Like other hamsters, Hamphrey is shorter than most, if not all, other species.


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

Hamphrey has a cranky personality, that means he will be mature compared to other villagers. He will easily get along with snooty villagers, due to their similar hostile personalities. He has trouble with normal, smug or peppy villagers. Jock villagers will also get along with him. He will admire lazy villagers' relaxed lifestyles. He will, on occasion, annoy a normal villager, when being mean about someone or something. He will sometimes call the player a brat, especially if they annoy him.
