-- Hamilton, Power Master: A Strange Journey MV

Hamilton Athio (nicknamed "Hammy" in the Power Master 1R Story) is a major character in the Power Master series, first appearing as one of the main playable characters in Power Master 1: A Strange Journey.


Hamilton is a man who lives in the Town of Uora. In Power Master 1: A Strange Journey and Power Master: A Strange Journey MV, he is 18 years old. He has a younger sister named Alice, who was introduced in the Power Master 1R Story, and is good friends with the Guardian of Uora[2].

Hamilton is friendly and always willing to help others, as shown when he tries to recover the Uora Gem for Stephan before they arrive, but he has a fear of heights and often gets immobilized when confronted with even the smallest of ledges[3]. He also already knew of Stephan, claiming to be a fan of Kyle and Merlina's adventures[4]. He is also incredibly strong, with being able to dual-wield weapons being a unique ability of his in Power Master 1, and is the youngest character to have this trait in Power Master MV.

Power Master 1R Story

Hamilton fulfills a similar role in the Power Master 1R Story as he does in Power Master: A Strange Journey MV. While the story is primarily based on Power Master 1: A Strange Journey, Hamilton's sister, Alice, is introduced.

Hamilton is first mentioned in Chapter 10: The Failing Flirter as part of Stephan's vision, and later revealed in the same chapter to have been a part of Helen's vision when she fainted in Chapter 8: Town of Trash. From this point, Stephan and Helen continue to be on the lookout for Hamilton until they finally meet him in Chapter 18: The Light-Headed Digger. There, they meet his sister, and they follow her into Uora Underground to find Hamilton stuck on a ledge. After rescuing him, the team reunites with Lacey, who had stayed behind in the Town of Gora, and find she is Hamilton's and Alice's mother. Hamilton remains with the group from then on.

At the end of the story, Hamilton goes back to the Town of Uora with Alice and Lacey.

Power Master 1: A Strange Journey

Recruiting Hamilton in Power Master 1

In Power Master 1: A Strange Journey, Hamilton lives alone in the Town of Uora, though he is friends with the town Guardian. He is first met in Uora Underground, stuck on a ledge and is unable to get down. To get to him, the player must blow up the boulder behind him with a Bomb to create a bridge on the lower floor. Once the player gets to Hamilton, the player can choose whether or not to let him on the team. If the player declines, he is found at his house in Uora. He is found in his house again after the endgame and will ask the player if he can join again, to which the player can accept or decline.

If the player is playing as Hamilton, Stephan fills his role instead.

Hamilton's greatest asset is his strength; he has the highest Offensive power than the rest of the characters and is able to wield two weapons at a time. However, his Agility is the lowest of them all and he cannot equip any Shields, leaving him defenseless. He also cannot equip any bows or whips.

Hamilton's skills rely mainly on helping out the team, even if it means making the enemy focus on him. He can raise his team's Defense and Offense using Restrengthen and Berserker's Roar respectively, and he can Cover other members with low Health.


Hamilton learns these skills at the following levels.

5 Cover
10 Provoke
15 Super Guard

25 Berserker's Roar
30 Pounding Blow, Ultimate Slash, Magic Burst

Card info

A digger from the town of Uora. Once he heard that the Moles stole his Guardian's Gem, he decided to help and expected to meet the hero and join him on his quest. (Canonical information)

Hamilton appears in Uora Underground
"A digger from the town of Uora. Strong and brave... except for when it comes to heights. His sister, Alice, is his only family. Wields Axes."
-- Hamilton's bio, Power Master: A Strange Journey MV

Hamilton appears in the Power Master: A Strange Journey MV, again as a main player character, being able to be assigned to any of the four roles the player can choose for him: "Hero", "Warrior", "Digger", and "Cousin". Upon being recruited, he will be assigned their respective class ("Legendary Descendant", "Warrior of Bora", "Digger from Uora", and "Desert Cousin"). As one of the new mechanics in Power Master: A Strange Journey MV, Hamilton can no longer learn skills by leveling up. His appearance has been updated, but is still mostly the same: He now wears a blue t-shirt, his armor is slightly differently designed, and he gains gauntlets. His sister, Alice, is introduced in this game.

Like in the previous game, Hamilton (if set as the Digger) is found in Uora Underground's first basement floor on a ledge. When the player reaches a certain point, Hamilton will call out and a conversation will play, with it changing depending on whether Alice is in the party or not. After blowing up a nearby boulder to create a bridge on the floor below, the player will be able to reach Hamilton and can choose to recruit him. Rescuing him will complete his recruitment quest, The Digger's Request.

Hamilton also has a personal axe and armor, which he starts off with if recruited as an ally. If Hamilton is playing as the Hero, his armor is found in his closet after defeating Silver Knight, and his axe is a reward for completing Quest #48: The Friend's Challenge.

Character information

Hamilton has a 25% increase to the Offense stat, which is mainly meant to differentiate him from the other Hero characters. He can equip Axes and can wear male-oriented clothing, and he can dual-wield. His best stats are Offense and Defense, with his Health also being good, though on a slow incline. However, his Agility is low and he is not great at using magical abilities.

If the player chooses to make Hamilton the Warrior at the start of the game, he can be fought in his house in the Town of Bora if the player says they are looking for stuff. Hamilton has high Health and Offense, and uses his axe. He can attack with Earth and can also Pierce the player's Defense. He is strong against axes, but is weak to swords and his magical capabilities are lacking. When defeated, he drops a Heal-All Health Vial and reluctantly agrees to help the player.

Files for a Doppel Hamilton and Dark Hamilton exist, but cannot be encountered properly yet.

Update history

  • 0.1.0 demo - Hamilton is capable of wielding lances, whips, and bows, in addition to the weapons and armor he used in the original game. Hamilton also gains additional expressions. The player starts as Stephan, though they can chose to swap with Hamilton by finding him in the Inn next to his sister, Alice.
  • 0.2.0 demo - Hamilton only has access to axes, being able to wield other weapons by wearing certain armor. He also loses his expressions, making way for armor-based portraits in later demos.
  • 0.3.0 demo - A mistake where the Digger could not be recruited to or dropped from the team if they are anyone other than Stephan has been fixed.
  • Final demo - Hamilton's portrait, player battler, and enemy battler graphics have changed and some statistics have been adjusted. Hamilton regains his expressions, due to armor-based portraits being removed.


Hamilton is named after the last name of the creator's best friend. His original design was a grey shirt and yellow shoes, but other designs have depicted him with spikes, similar to his final design. Hamilton being left-handed was due to an drawing orientation error and him being able to wield two-weapons is a remnant of a dual-weapon-wielding mechanic.[5]

According to a concept piece, Hamilton's full name is Hamilton Spike Athio, though this has yet to be used in a game.

  2. "[Hamilton]'s a good friend of mine. You can bet he'll be on your side." - Uora, Power Master 1
  3. "Can't you jump down from there? It doesn't look very high. Maybe fifteen feet?"
    "Hamilton's afraid of heights. Anything more than five feet up is likely to make his head spin." - Stephan and Alice, Power Master MV
  4. "Oh, my sibling is a big fan of yours. Er, they look up to your ancestors, more accurately. They don't know you exactly, but they know of you." - Alice, Power Master MV
  5. "Hamilton is named after the last name of my best friend. His original design was much simpler, wearing a grey shirt with yellow shoes. Also, he was made to be left-handed after an orientation drawing error. The game was originally planned with dual-weapon wielding, which explains Hamilton's unique ability to wield two axes. He's also just that strong himself." - Alex in Hamilton's house, Power Master 1
