    Lemmings (Norm of the North)

    The Lemmings
    You thought the Minions were annoying?
    Well, you haven't seen these guys!
    Gender: Male
    Type: Obnoxiously Unfunny Sidekicks
    Species: Arctic Lemmings
    Portrayed by: Nicolas Atlan
    Status: Alive
    Media of origin: Norm of the North

    "By the time that this movie's over, not only are you gonna want the entire species of Arctic lemmings extinct, you're probably gonna want to nuke the f**king Arctic."

    Mr. Enter

    The Lemmings are the best friends, companions, and sidekicks of Norm and major protagonists of the critically panned 2016 Indian-American animated film, Norm of the North and its direct-to-video sequels. They are voiced by Nicolas Atlan.

    Why They Deserve to Be Crushed

    1. Out of all the annoying and pointless characters in the film, they are considered the most annoying and the worst characters in the Norm of the North film series, even worse than the titular character himself.
    2. Much like Hi-5 and Jar Jar Binks, they're written for no other reason than to be useless comic reliefs.
    3. They are extremely disgusting and are constantly used for toilet humor. Their portrayals as a trio of "comic reliefs" make them have nothing more than toilet and gross-out humor.
    4. Each time they're on-screen, they do something unfunny, annoying, gross, or just downright obnoxious. Here are examples of this:
      • In the first film, they infamously urinate in a fish tank for thirty full seconds. Even worse, they never got punished whatsoever, giving them an invite to the Karma Houdini trope.
      • Their flatulating gag jokes are cringe-worthy, bland and juvenile, even for a kids' movie.
    5. They're complete rip-offs of Dee Dee, Joey and Marky from Oggy and the Cockroaches, the Rabbids from the Raving Rabbids franchise, The Blues from Angry Birds and especially Illumination's Minions, but they lack all of the charm and likability of these characters mentioned above. They are less funny and a whole lot more annoying than them somehow.
    6. Their designs are very ugly, uncanny, and beyond terrible to the point of becoming misleading, as they look more like guinea pigs or hamsters instead of actual lemmings, partly due to the film’s bad animation.
    7. Their purpose of existence, aside from being comic reliefs, is to be another one of these filler characters.
    8. They all do not have a clear personality outside of being quote-on-quote "funny" and supposedly Norm's loyal sidekicks.
    9. They disobey others' commands, for example, when Norm tells the Lemmings not to go to New York with him in the second movie, they do the opposite thing anyway.
    10. Their voices by Nicolas Atlan can get pretty annoying to listen to.
      • Their voices are even worse in the direct-to-video sequels, to the point of making their voices sound more high-pitched.
    11. While not as bad as Mr. Greene's, their movements are awkward, uncanny, and somewhat cartoony, for example in the scene when they get into the fish tank, it looks like they're flying. It doesn't help that the movie uses cartoon sound effects for them.
    12. In the first movie, Norm states that they don't have bones to justify being "indestructible", which is false because lemmings in real life do have bones.

    Redeeming Qualities

    1. It's impressive to see them not die, showing strong durability like them surviving from being stomped, squished, electrocuted, or smashed by any object.
    2. They are actually used a lot less in Norm of the North: Family Vacation, thus making them less of a Creator's Pet.
