Sam is one of Q*bert's enemies, appearing in the original Q*bert in arcades in 1982. He is a small, green onion-like creature (similar to his brother - Slick) who's role, like Slick's, is to undo Q*bert's progress on the pyramid by jumping on them and reverting them to their original colour (i:e; the colour they were before Q*bert jumped on them.
In the first game, Slick and Sam played an identical role: turn the color of the cubes back the way they were before Q*bert landed on them. Unlike other enemies, Q*bert can defeat both Slick and Sam by running into them.
In the third game, Slick and Sam played the same role as in the original.
He makes a cameo appearance in Disney's Wreck-It Ralph alongside the other cast of Q*bert as homeless arcade characters begging for food.
