So yeah... We should hear it fire any second now... It's gonna go... BOOOOOM!
Welcome to Lemmy's Magical Circus, Mario!!! Would you like to have some fun with these magical balls? See if you can balance yourself on top of them like I can. Ha Ha Ha!
This is it! The moment you’ve all been waiting for. The FINAL performance of Mario’s career!
Lemmy Koopa is the second-oldest of the seven Koopalings and a recurring antagonist in the Super Mario series.
He is voiced by Carlee McManus, who took over Lani Minella (the original video game voice actress of Lemmy), and was voiced by Tara Strong as Hip Koopa who also voiced his twin Hop Koopa in the cartoons.
Lemmy is the sixth boss fought in Super Mario Bros. 3. He flies an airship in an ice world, and transformed the king into a seal with a magic wand. Mario fights him and defeats him by jumping on him three times. Afterward, he runs off, leaving behind the magic wand.
This fighting style is similar to Wendy's, in that Lemmy sends attacks flying around the room, but this fight is much easier than Wendy because the floor is flat (since Lemmy walks on a ball) and his attacks (consisting of rubber balls) can be jumped on.
Super Mario World
Lemmy is the third boss fought in Super Mario World. He is fought at Vanilla Dome Castle. He fights inside pipes like Wendy does later on, with a fireball moving around. There are also two decoy Lemmys in the pipes, but these are scarecrows and are easy to distinguish from the real Lemmy. Once jumped on three times, Lemmy is defeated and falls into the lava.
Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga
Members of the Koopa Troop never seem to stay dead; Lemmy and the other Koopalings returned in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, not working for Bowser this time but Cackletta (who is possessing Bowser as Bowletta). Just like in Super Mario World, he is the third Koopaling to be fought by Mario and Luigi, and creates decoys of himself (except these are identical). Once defeated, he apparently dies and disintegrates like other defeated enemies.
Super Princess Peach
Lemmy and the other Koopalings were originally going to appear in Super Princess Peach (with sprites created for them already), but in the end they did not, with Super Mario Sunshine bosses like Petey Piranha, Gooper Blooper, and King Boo appearing instead.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii
Like his other appearances except his first, Lemmy is the third Koopaling to be fought, and like his first appearance, he is the boss of an ice world. During the battle inside his castle, Kamek magically enlarged Lemmy's walking ball, but Mario, Luigi, and the Toads were able to jump on him three times and defeat him, sending him falling over the edge. He survived, however, and is last seen in the ending sequence with Bowser and the other Koopalings (including Bowser Jr.) before Bowser's castle falls on top of them all.
Mario Kart 8
Lemmy, alongside the rest of the Koopalings, appears as a playable character for the first time in Mario Kart 8. He is one of the lightest playable characters in the game.
Super Smash Bros. series
Lemmy has been an alternate costume for Bowser Jr. in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Lemmy has the same yellow and tan skin complexion, as well as a green head, like most of the other koopalings, although he has distinctive pair of orange bars on the left-side of. He has large oval eyes are often crossed or even pointing in opposite directions. Lemmy's head is oval-shaped and disproportionately large compared to his small body. Lemmy is the smallest of all koopalings, around as small as Toad, as even early official material showed. He wears the same spiked metal cuffs as his male siblings and his stomach and feet are padded.
Lemmy is described as a fun-loving child with some immature traits. Unlike his fellow Koopalings, who enjoys committing crimes and other villainous deeds, Lemmy wishes to join a circus group. In the Mario comics, Lemmy is shown to be clumsy; this was evident by the fact that he trips and accidentally tosses a bomb at both Mario and Bowser, almost killing them but removing their chains.
Powers and Abilities
Since his debut appearance in the Mario platformer games, Lemmy is able to conjure up a large ball to move on top of. In addition, he is also to shoot smaller bouncy balls as a means of attacking Mario; the balls damage the plumber in the original Super Mario Bros. 3 while in subsequent games, the balls doesn't do physical damage and instead push Mario or Luigi.
In New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Lemmy gains the ability to launch bouncing bombs due to him not wielding his usual magic wand.
In the Super Mario Bros. 3 manual, it is revealed that Lemmy would rather join the circus then destroy Mario, possibly making him the least evil Koopaling out of them all.
Lemmy's name is derived from Lemmy Kilmister, founder of the rock and roll band Motörhead.
