These creatures were apparently quite intelligent and had the ability to talk in whispers, though most of the time they just made normal hamster squeaks. The only known miniature giant space hamster in Realmspace was named Boo and was the animal companion of the Rashemi ranger Minsc ever since his first head wound.
- Miniature giant space hamsters first appeared in the Planescape supplemental book, In The Cage: A Guide to Sigil, which predated Baldur's Gate by three years.
- In Neverwinter Nights: Shadows of Undrentide, Dagget Filth mentioned gigantic space hamsters.
- In Mass Effect 2 and 3, also from BioWare, the player could buy a "Space Hamster" in the human shop on the Citadel.
