Lemmy Koopa (known as Hip Koopa in the cartoons) is one of the Koopalings, a clan of seven siblings that act as leaders of the Koopa Troop under Bowser (originally considered his children). Lemmy is the smallest of the group and is often associated with childish traits due to his stature and personality. He is well recognized for his multicolored mohawk, crossed-eyes, and the magical ball he balances atop in most appearances; his special abilities also deal with bouncy balls. Lemmy is named after the late Ian Fraser "Lemmy" Kilmister, the founder of the heavy metal band Motörhead.
