Yeah yeah yeah! - Fang

Fang is Horrid Henry’s pet hamster, and he lives with Henry and Perfect Peter, but Fang is owned and solemnly cared for by Henry, and usually the other members of the family don’t help Fang. He is the tritagonist of the series. He also lives with Fluffy and is not the only pet in the house. He doesn't like Fluffy, and sometimes a situation with Peter's cat badly ends when Fang does the work Henry wants him to do. But later he and Fluffy befriend each other.

History

Pre-series

In Horrid Henry's Top Ten Things, Henry says Fang was a present for learning how to ride his bike. Henry seems to have been around 7 when he learned.

Description

Henry is Fang's best mate and possibly only mate. Fang is often used to feud with Fluffy and has a helpful ear when Henry needs someone to talk to. He made his first major role in Horrid Henry and the Zombie Hamster when Henry told him to be quiet, and this upset Fang thinking Henry wants to be left alone, so he runs out the window. Unlike other hamsters, he has many skills and talents. According to Henry, he only bites Henry's enemies and people who Fang thinks are evil or horrible.

He is the most athletic animal on the show and also one of the strongest characters, as he can throw a slipper his size and can manoeuvre through obstacles on his skateboard in Horrid Henry: I Am Not a Hamster. A slipper is 2.5 lbs and Fang weighs at least 1.7 lbs, so he can lift the slipper, which is heavier than himself. But what makes Fang the strongest character on the show is how he throws it. Since he throws it as high as a couple of meters, estimated to be two. Compared to his size, he is as strong as four men.

​Appearance

Fang has a slightly darker gold colour has brown spots all over his body and one on his left eye. He has sharp buckteeth and has a cream belly. However, in Horrid Henry and the Secret Club, his colour is lighter and only has one spot on his body and lacks the spot on his eye, his fur is smoother.

​Personality

In early episodes, Fang was described as a vicious, toothy, and bites-a-lot hamster. He is extremely full of energy and often gets himself in trouble.

Despite his slightly crazy side and seems like an average hamster, he appears to be athletic in Horrid Henry and the Boodle Poodle, since he can dance, hula hoop, skateboard, slipper throw and also swimming. In Horrid Henry: The Movie, he can also sing, but he also helped eat the vegetable stew during the Too Cool For School challenge.

In Horrid Henry: I Am Not a Hamster, he obeys Henry and is a very loyal hamster and can understand English. He is Henry's backup as shown in Horrid Henry and the Tickly Treats Thief where he takes the photo of the culprit eating the Tickly Treats. If Henry faces trouble, Fang will side with him. He loves eating Tickly Treats as he eats them in Horrid Henry.

However, in the episode Horrid Henry and the Snotslimer Redemption, Fang's personality is explained in more depth. He is more courageous and willing to help those in need such as his fellow breathen and other hamsters such as freeing them from the school.

Relationships

Henry

Fang's best friend ever, when Henry is in trouble, Fang will help him. Fang helps to deliver the comic to Henry and helps Henry when in a pickle. He hangs out with Henry and Ralph too and is considered the 'Royal Pet' in the Series 4 intro. However, he does get annoyed when Henry messes up quite a lot. But Fang just hates to see his owner unhappy.

Peter

Fang appears to hold a grudge against Peter in the early series, because he often tells on Henry and enjoys getting him into trouble, which Fang hates as he is so loyal to Henry. He is also seen growling at Peter in Horrid Henry and the Killer Boy Rats and Horrid Henry and the Zombie Hamster when Peter wanted to put a baby bonnet on him. Fang also farted at Peter in Horrid Henry, Nothing But The Truth. But in later episodes, Fang doesn't seem to mind Peter as he is now Chief Secretary to Henry, but as Peter is sometimes still cruel or traitorous to Henry, Fang and Peter are more or less frenemies.

Fluffy

Fang's former rival and current friend, Fang and Fluffy were once arch-rivals of one another as shown in Horrid Henry's Household Chores, Horrid Henry and the Zombie Hamster, Horrid Henry and the Tickly Treats Thief and Horrid Henry Where's Fluffy?. Fluffy soon joins Fang's side. Fluffy also helps Fang in Horrid Henry and the Boodle Poodle while he was trying to swim. In Series 4, Fang and Fluffy normally use the tablet for music and to record dancing but delete the recording so nobody will know their secret. Fluffy and Fang have teamed up in Horrid Henry's Animal Antics.

Margaret

Fang shows hostility against Margaret. In Horrid Henry's Horrid Hamster, Fang traumatizes Margaret along with the other students, but soon in Horrid Henry and the Boodle Poodle, she is no longer scared of Fang but calls him a rat despite Fang being a hamster.

Others

Boodle Poodle’s

Fang's opponent in the Boodle Poodle Competition from Horrid Henry and the Boodle Poodle. Fang and the Boodle Poodle fought through hula hooping, slipper throwing, dancing and synchronized swimming though not real synchronized swimming according to Ralph. Fang manages to beat the Boodle Poodle despite Margaret not announcing the winner. Despite Fang’s disdain for Boodle Poodle’s, he and Fluffy easily befriended Margaret’s new pet Boodle Poodle, with no hesitation and seemed nice when the Boodle Poodle left, waving at her with Fluffy. This implies Fang only hates Boodle Poodles who are mean or challenge him.
