Lemmington appears as a male lemming with white fur, black eyes, pink nose, gray mustache, and grey paws. He wears a small Viking helmet, and is seen with a wheel with golden spikes.
In the game, Lemmingtons run motivating his wheel as he uses it to cling on grass that is on walls and under platforms. Lemmingtons can hurt the Kongs while their clinging on the hanging grass. Lemmington can be defeated by shaking the grass where he is clinging. Lemmington will be stunned, and fall off the grass from the platforms. He can also be defeated by Cranky Kong with his cane.
