Panda (パンダくん, Panda-kun) is a hamster owned by Mimi. A Ham-Ham whose fur matches his name, he is the sweet and gentle-natured carpenter of the Ham-Hams who built and repaired many things throughout the duration of the anime as well as the in the games.


Panda serves as a carpenter for the Ham-Hams. He builds most of the large structures used by the Ham-Hams throughout the series. His most-prized project is the Ham-Ham Fun Park (in Panda's Ham-Ham Fun Park!). Mimi's parents own and operate a woodwork shop in their house, meaning Panda always has access to construction supplies.


Panda has an extremely close bond with his owner, Mimi. She is the only human who can understand the Ham-Hams, and thus she often confides in Panda. Being the determined Ham-Ham he is, he goes out of his way and rallies the other Ham-Hams to provide Mimi support and to help her.

He is arguably the most subdued and relaxed out of the boy Ham-Hams, preferring to stay on the sidelines on many occasions. He also seems to enjoy spending time with the girl Ham-Hams and shares some of their passions, such as knitting (The Knitting Craze). He is also more sensitive than the other boys and gets especially worked up if his owner is upset.



In earlier episodes, Panda has a crush on Bijou. This is first confirmed in the Tottoko Yoroshiku! Hamuchans introductory drama CD, in which he says he would like to build something for her and wonders if she likes him back. However, it seems like Boss's domineering personality and over-protectiveness of Bijou was too much for Panda to handle. He even says "There are too many rivals!" in regards to how many Ham-Hams have a crush on her. As a result of this, and also the fact that Bijou has never viewed him in a romantic way, this crush seems to have died out early on.
