Maxwell (のっぽくん, Noppo-kun, Spanish "Cerebrin") is an intelligent hamster who knows many facts. The Ham-Hams go to him for information. He was temporarily leader of the Ham-Hams when Boss went away for a while. Maxwell has a crush on Sandy and they become a couple later on. Maxwell is like a big brother figure for most Ham-Hams. A book-smart hamster of higher learning, the Ham-Hams go to Maxwell for knowledge of the world around them.


Owned by the eldest son of a bookstore owner (though it seems that the bookstore owner's daughter Yume is the one who cares for him). He always carries a book with him and is often turned to for information. He seems to know a lot about science and literature due to his love of reading. He is a little taller than the Ham-Hams, partially due to his tall ears.

He has a crush on Sandy, though it is never initiated until Hamtaro tells him about Sandy's feelings. Maxwell has a love for acting and knows how to act. He is also very brave, and saved the Ham-Hams from danger in Maxwell's Big Scoop! and The Ham-Ham Explorers and the Romance Story!

Maxwell however can feel pressured when people ask a lot of him (such as thinking up a solution for every problem), and it sometimes leads to him getting angry. Examples of this can be seen in Much Ado About School!, Maxwell gets angry and chases down Howdy after ripping up the Red Card. Also in Maxwell's Big Scoop! he gets mad at the Ham-Hams for always leaving him with all the thinking.

He is very passionate about books and learning, and loves to help others learn new things, but often gets disappointed because the other ham-hams don't pay attention when he tries to teach them.

Maxwell is the tallest ham-ham, save Boss. He has a taller, thinner body shape compared to the other ham-hams, and his ears are longer.



Maxwell and Sandy are concerted an official couple in the English series since during Let's Dance, Sandy!, but in the Japanese show, they are not official until a much later episode, A Little Love Story!, when Maxwell reads a story of two lovers.
