The Heroic Hamsters are one of the two opposing teams in Total Drama All-Stars. The team logo is a yellow hamster with a halo over its head on a gold background. The team was originally made up of Mike, Zoey, Cameron, Sam, Courtney, Lindsay and Sierra. However, in Saving Private Leechball, Courtney and Duncan switched teams due to their actions in the episode. In Moon Madness, Cameron attempted to quit the game due to Sierra's affections, but instead, Chris placed him on other team.
The team was formed in Heroes vs. Villains. Based on their performance in the previous seasons, Chris assigned Cameron, Courtney, Lindsay, Mike, Sam, Sierra, and Zoey onto the team, due to their "heroic" actions. Their first challenge required one person to drive a baby carriage to and from the cliff, where the remaining members dove into shark-infested waters to retrieve a key. They would then race to the eco-friendly McLean Spa Hotel to test if it opens the door. Courtney pushed Lindsay toward the carriage after the others couldn't decide who to pick. Lindsay soon proved to be a bad choice as she started falling behind the Villainous Vultures. The team was slowed down even more when Sierra jumped into the carriage, despite Courtney being already inside. As a result, Lindsay was so exhausted that Mike had to steer the carriage with a pole. The team gained an advantage when Scott refused to jump, wasting the Vultures' time. However, their last chance at victory failed when a returning Alejandro retrieved the correct key. The team chose to vote out Lindsay, due to costing them the challenge by steering the carriage poorly.
In Evil Dread, the teams had to assemble a sculpture by finding its pieces on the beach. The process was further complicated by hidden booby traps. Zoey helped design a plan that would help the team find all their pieces faster than the Vultures. When the Vultures thought they had all their parts, it turned out they were missing one. This opened up the door for the Heroes to complete their sculpture. Just as Heather and Jo found the last piece, so did Zoey. In the end, Zoey launched the final part to their sculpture and it landed in place, allowing them to have their first win and a night at the McLean Spa-Hotel. Everyone except Sam, who said he'd go to exile due to his poor digging skills in the challenge.
The Hamsters win their second challenge in Saving Private Leechball. During which, the Hamsters had to eliminate all the Vultures from the challenge by shooting them with leeches. Even though the Hamsters had a head start for winning the last challenge, the Vultures still managed to get the crate with paintball guns instead of slingshots. With Sam in poor condition from his trip to Boney Island, his team mates allowed him to rest in a cave, with Courtney staying with him. Meanwhile, Zoey, Cameron, and Mike all managed to shoot at least one of the Vultures. Zoey eliminated the last Vulture, Jo, ending it and winning it for her team. For using the other Hamsters as pawns and Sam as a human shield, Courtney was deemed unheroic by Chris. She was thereby forced to switch with Duncan, who did a heroic deed by sacrificing himself to protect his girlfriend. Cameron was the one to go to exile due to Sierra becoming a little too affectionate towards him.
In Food Fright, the Hamsters warmly welcomed Duncan to the team with a party. At the challenge, the Hamsters had to eat an entire stack of pancakes and last throughout an obstacle course without vomiting. The team was losing to the Vultures until Sam decided to tag Zoey out, while Alejandro took Heather's place. Both of them finished the obstacle course, but Sam managed to get out first, making them win for the third time in a row. During the elimination ceremony, however, it was revealed that Sam technically didn't complete the challenge. He stuffed a few pieces of pancake in his pockets out of fear of having to return to exile. Therefore, the Hamsters lost and the Vultures were deemed the real winners. Sam would eventually be the next member of the team getting eliminated because of his actions.
In Moon Madness, the Hamsters had to make it to the other side of the island before the Vultures. As the challenge was in progression, the rare blue harvest moon would tamper with the wildlife. Mike was affected as well, switching to his evil alternate personality, Mal. The Hamsters spent a great deal of the challenge separated. Sierra continued to shower Cameron in unwanted affection, Mal engaged in severe mischief, and Duncan wandered off. All members did eventually come back together. The two teams came close in winning as the moon returned to normal - only Courtney, Gwen, and Mike, having switched back to himself, remained behind. The girls took advantage of his confused state by crossing the finish line before him. At elimination, Cameron volunteered for the Flush of Shame due to Sierra constantly thinking he's Cody. Then, Chris revealed that the voted off competitor would not be eliminated, but sent to the other team.
In No One Eggspects The Spanish Opposition, the two teams went on an egg hunt. During the challenge, the Vultures were in the lead over the Hamsters to the point of them only needing one more egg to win. With Heather racing with the final egg for the Vultures, Zoey and Mike were seen carrying an entire nest to significantly place the heroes ahead, as well as claim another victory. Heather threw the egg at the last second. However, Cameron's clumsy hands cost them the challenge, breaking it before it was returned to the basket. Neither him nor Courtney were able to tame the mutant baby that hatched. Mike and Zoey, on the other hand, had no trouble with the nest. Their contribution placed the final score at 17-5.
In Suckers Punched, the challenge involved everyone facing their worst fears in a boxing match. Zoey was excused due to obtaining the most eggs in the previous episode. Chris also automatically gave the Hamsters a point. Duncan and Sierra both managed to lose their match ups, while Mike, as Mal, managed to beat Cameron's fear, Izzy, and won another point. The Vultures, however, scored three points first when Courtney and Gwen tied and earned two points for the team. In the end, the Vultures got to vote someone off and they chose Sierra. The Heroes then voted Alejandro to go to Boney Island for exile.
In You Regatta Be Kidding Me, Chris announced that the teams would be merging, dissolving the Hamsters and the Vultures. This left Duncan, Mike, and Zoey as the only members of this team to make it to the merge.

- This is the fifth "inferior" team on Total Drama, after the Killer Bass, Killer Grips, Team Victory, and Toxic Rats, but before Pimâpotew Kinosewak.
- So far this is the strongest inferior team, as they were only beaten by the Villainous Vultures by one win.
- Prior to the switch in Saving Private Leechball, the Heroic Hamsters did not have a male from the original cast on their team.
- This is the first team where the last two members are in a relationship with each other.
- Along with Total Drama: Pahkitew Island's Waneyihtam Maskwak and Pimâpotew Kinosewak, this is one of three teams known to have an in-show alternative name.
