Traps are objects in a level designed to kill Lemmings. They are typically inactive, and often well hidden, until a Lemming gets too close.

For most traps found in Lemmings and Oh No! More Lemmings, if a group of Lemmings are bunched up together, the majority will be able to walk past a trap unhurt, as only one Lemming at a time will be trapped; these are known as Triggered Traps. Other traps are active continuously and kill any Lemming that gets too close, no matter what; these are known as Continuous Traps.

In later games, some Triggered Traps can be triggered by one Lemming yet kill multiple at once. In a few titles, traps take the form of Creatures that walk around the level, attacking one lemming at a time as they happen upon them. Note that the Mole from The Lemmings Chronicles is an exception. Finally, some traps, especially those in Lemmings: The Puzzle Adventure, operate on a timer and temporarily activate after a set period of time before repeating the cycle; these will be referred to as Timed Traps.
