Raccoon Dog (タヌキくん, Tanuki-kun) is a Djungarian hamster. He acts like an underling to Fox. The two of them had the Ham-Hams and the Otome Crew help find their friend Treasure Box in their game of hide-and-seek.

His catchphrase in the Japanese version is "Pun~!" and variations thereof.


He is a bit goofy and scatter-brained, much to the dismay of Fox. This is shown when he loses the treasure map to find Treasure Box. However, he is loyal to Fox and doesn't easily think for himself.



Raccoon Dog looks up to Fox with tremendous respect, referring to him with the honorific "dono" as if Fox were his superior. Although Fox is a bit rude to him, the two are still good friends
