Imagination at 12 o'clock!

Tungster is a Lixer Mixel.



This odd-looking member of the Lixers tribe can soar majestically into the sky with those flapping wings - or lick up nasty Nixels with his long tongue. Either way, it’s guaranteed to get a little weird.

Physical Appearance

Tungster is mostly yellow in color. His body and head are one cone-like shape. He has a larger upper jaw that extends outwards with seven teeth pointing downwards, the outer four teeth being larger. He has a rounded section on his head with two spikes, along with two orange cat-like ears. He has two orange wings on the top of his body as well. His arms are short, with a single claw on each that starts out yellow and changes to white at the tips. He has a large and thick red tongue. His legs are short, grey, and bowed. He has tall feet with an orange toe on each.



Tungster can fly high up in the air to lick up Nixels. He can also use his tongue like a vine to travel through the trees.


Early life

Little is known about Tungster's past.

First adventures

Tungster licked up a few popsicle trees in the Frozen Volcanoes and Mixed with Snoof to share them. ("Snoof and Tungster Mix!")

Tungster and his Lixer brothers baked a cake and Maxed to share it, as well as clean up the mess they had made in their kitchen. ("Lixers Max in the Kitchen!")

Tungster was one of many Mixels who were forced to outrun the Nixelstorm and help shut it down. ("Mixels Rush")

Tungster soared above the Klinkers and licked them as they attempted to traverse a swamp they had fallen into. He later stood by Spugg and Turg's sides as Spugg played fetch with Snoof's group of Mixels searching for the Mixamajig. He then joined the group and was captured as part of King Nixel's plan. He Maxed with his branch of Lixers to defeat him. Mixopolis was revealed to him by the Weldos afterwards. ("A Quest for the Lost Mixamajig")

Further adventures

While Tungster was in Mixopolis during the Nixels' I-Cubit takeover, King Nixel was defeated by Glorp Corp Mixel Booger. Trying to escape, the King crashed into the Tungster & Slusho Mix, disintegrating him into ashes. Tungster and Slusho then de-mixed and laughed with each other. ("Nixel, Nixel, Go Away")

In-Booklet code

Tungster's in-booklet code for Mixels Rush is VA1KYR1E, which is Valkyrie when decoded.

Background Information

  • He was seen on the Mixels Rush app icon for Series 5, but was later replaced by Dribbal.


  • His ears point upward in his artwork while his LEGO model's ears point forward.
  • His tongue appears to be somewhat sticky, similar to a chameleon's tongue.
  • His original concept art showed both of his feet flat on the ground, instead of one leg raised as shown in his official artwork. A version of his artwork with his feet flat on the ground is still used for reference in the production of the series.
  • His 2x2 tongue piece in his LEGO model has a single hole in the middle of it for some reason, similar to Tuth.
  • Some of his teeth is on the sides of his head in his LEGO model, but all his teeth are in the front in his animated form.
  • His lower jaw is black in the cartoon, but more yellow in his LEGO model.
  • He is the only Lixer to have orange pieces in LEGO that aren't transparent, in this case, his wings.
  • His Lego form uses the most pieces to build his tongue out of his Tribe Mates.

Behind the Scenes

Name and basis

Tungster's name is a corruption of the word "tongue-twister".

Tungster's name, alternatively, could be a blend of a corruption of the words "tongue" and "taster".

Tungster looks slightly described a half soaring eagle and half slurping rodent, according to Mixels Rush.

Tungster's wings looks slightly resembles a Valkyrie's helmet. Interestingly, Valkyries are females in classic mythology.


In the TV series, and where sound clips are used, Tungster's voice is Tom Kenny.  

Real-life History


Tungster appeared with the rest of Series 4 through 6 at Toy Fairs in late January and early February 2015.

Tungster debuted in the TV series on September 26, 2015 in A Quest for the Lost Mixamajig, while his LEGO set officially became available on June 1 with the rest of Series 5.
