It’s Lemmy Koopa!
Lemmy is a total goof. In Super Mario Bros. 3, unlike his brothers, he doesn’t use his magic want to shoot magic loops at the Marios, but instead to throw beach balls at the heroes. He also balances on his own beach ball, and that’s just great.
In the DiC Cartoon, Lemmy and Iggy are named “Hip” and “Hop,” because it was the early 1990s, and rap music was all the hotness, and why not include that in your Mario cartoon, I guess?
Lemmy is named after the late Motörhead frontman, Lemmy Kilmister. And that’s fucking awesome.
