The Lemmings series were the inspiration for the Red Clay Army, an army of golems controlled by an icon-driven interface who would climb, dig and march when commanded to, in the 1994 Discworld novel "Interesting Times" by Terry Pratchett.

When asked about the Red Clay Army's connection to the Lemmings series, Pratchett said,

"What? Lemmings? Merely because the red army can fight, dig, march and climb and is controlled by little icons? Can't imagine how anyone thought that...

Not only did I wipe Lemmings from my hard disc, I overwrote it so's I couldn't get it back."
