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. They also have small nails in their helmets, along with wheels.
In the game, Lemmingtons run motivating their wheels as they use it to cling on grass that is on walls and under platforms. Lemmingtons can hurt the Kongs while their clinging on the hanging grass. A Lemmington can be defeated by shaking the grass where they are clinging. Lemmington will be stunned, and fall off the grass from the platforms. They can also be defeated by Cranky Kong with his cane.
