Part four is creatively titled ''Film/Leprechaun4InSpace'', which shamelessly ripped off the tagline from ''Film/{{Alien}}'' ("In Space, No-One Can Hear You Scream"). In the future, a team of {{Space Marine}}s are searching for an [[RichBitch alien princess]], who he intends to make his bride. Apparently, the more gold a leprechaun has, the more powerful his magic is. Combining her wealth with his own will make him the most powerful being in the galaxy!

* OddballInTheSeries: Granted, all films have different continuities, but ''Leprechaun 4: In Space'' in particular stands out, because 1) It is the only film set in the future and not on Earth, and 2) The Leprechaun doesn't do nearly as much rhyming.

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Series-wide tropes]]
* AffablyEvil: The leprechaun seldom kills those that don't steal his gold, insult him, get in his way, or do anything else to anger him. In the first and fifth films he is willing to spare those that return his gold. When he first meets Ozzie in the original film, he offers to shine his shoes for him. In ''Back 2 Tha Hood'', he seems to get along with a stoner who lets him smoke from his bong... until he finds out that the stoner has one of his gold coins.
** FauxAffablyEvil: The leprechaun goes back and forth between the two. At one point in ''In The Hood'', he acts friendly to someone for a while before tearing their finger off. While he does seem genuinely affable at times, the leprechaun also as a habit of pretending to be nice before attacking his victims. It depends on his mood.
* AgonyOfTheFeet: Due to his short stature, Leprechaun usually goes for the legs.
* AlienBlood: Leprechaun bleeds green.
* AntagonistTitle
%%* AttackOfTheKillerWhatever
* BeatItByCompulsion: Leprechaun is compelled to shine all the dirty shoes he comes across.
* BerserkButton: Do not steal the Leprechaun's gold. [[ParanoiaFuel He will find you.]]
* BlackComedy: The films aren't strictly horror. Hell, the Leprechaun chases people on roller skates, wheel chairs and tricycles, performs a rap number and kills one person with a po-go stick.
* DolledUpInstallment: ''Leprechaun's Revenge'' was advertised as a new movie in this series despite not being related at all.
* EvilLaugh: Lep has a distinctive "haahaha" -laugh.
* {{Flanderization}}: While the original movie's dosed with black humor, comedy ''really'' overtakes the horror aspect as the series goes along.
* GenreSavvy: A few humans know enough about the folklore of leprechauns to actually use them against him, but often they're not savvy enough to kill him.
* {{Immortality}}: The Leprechaun does not age, has been trapped for years without food or water and survived, usually shrugs off attacks undamaged or heals quickly, and has been blown to pieces and quickly reformed. Generally, the only ways to kill him are either shoving cast iron into him or shooting him with a four-leaf clover.
* ImplacableMan: The Leprechaun, bordering on TheJuggernaut in ''Back 2 tha Hood''.
* JackassGenie: The Leprechaun's preferred style of granting wishes.
* JokerImmunity: Depending on whether or not you consider the Leprechaun the same creature in each film.
* KryptoniteFactor: Wrought iron and the four-leafed clovers are the weakness for the Leprechaun.
* LeftHanging: The ''Leprechaun'' comic series produced by a company called Bluewater Productions was seemingly cancelled after four issues, and just as it was getting good.
%%* ManipulativeBastard: Leprechaun imitates voices when needed.
* NeutralFemale: In the first movie's final battle.
* NumberedSequels: [[StoppedNumberingSequels Stopped]] after the fourth film.
* OddballInTheSeries: Granted, all films have different continuities, but ''Leprechaun 4: In Space'' in particular stands out, because 1) It is the only film set in the future and not on Earth, and 2) The Leprechaun doesn't do nearly as much rhyming.
* OddlyNamedSequel2ElectricBoogaloo: Gradually. There's ''Leprechaun'', followed by ''Leprechaun 2'' and ''Leprechaun 3'', then introducing subtitles with ''Leprechaun 4: In Space'', followed by dropping the number for ''Leprechaun: In The Hood'' and ending with ''Leprechaun: Back 2 Da Hood'' by mimicking ''[[TheFastAndTheFurious 2 Fast 2 Furious]]'''s ridiculous title.
* RhymesOnADime: Leprechaun is fond of rhyming. The fourth movie is the only installment where he doesn't do any.
* SelfPlagiarism: Director of the first film (and writer of every entry in the series) Mark Jones made ''Film/{{Rumpelstiltskin}}'' in 1995, which is another horror film with an evil wish granting dwarf. He seems to have thing for mini-monster movies, since he also made one about a DemonicDummy called ''Triloquist''
* SeriesContinuityError: The biggest issue is regarding how the Leprechaun is awakened as it changes from movie to movie. His age is also inconsistent.
** How he's killed or defeated is different each film. However, surprisingly, the same weapons that work on him in one film normally continue to work in another. Cast iron is among the most often used.
** There IS of course the theory that it's not the same Leprechaun in each film and they just all look the same, though.
*** Which in itself would be another continuity error. Back 2 The Hood confirms there are other leprechauns but states that only one remained in this world.
** The second movie states that the leperchaun cannot kill with his treasure. The third
film has him killing a man with one of his coins.
* SuperOCD: The Leprechaun has a strange compulsion to shine any shoes that he sees. Even when he's trying to attack/kill people, he still takes
the examples of:
time to polish shoes.
* ThematicSeries: There isn't any connecting thread to the movies beyond the leprechaun. They're all their own self contained stories.
* {{Undercrank}}: Used in the first film to make it seem that leprechaun is going faster.

!!''Origins'' has the examples of:

* AccidentalMurder: Leprechaun tricks Sophie and Ben in killing [[spoiler: Jeni]]
* DarkerAndEdgier: The film goes into this direction, as the Leprechaun is a monster that doesn't bother with jokes.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: David]] does this in order to help other escape from Leprechaun.
* FinalGirl: [[spoiler: Sophie]], become one after all her friends is killed.
* InNameOnly: ''Leprechaun Origins'' shares nothing in common with the original films (including a leprechaun at all, as it's some kind of lizard monster).
* MythologyGag: Before [[OffWithHisHead decapitating]] the Leprechaun, Sophie says "Fuck you lucky charms", which was also said in the original 1993 film before the Leprechaun was defeated.
* OffWithHisHead: How [[spoiler: Leprechaun]] dies.
* StockSubtitle
* TheVoiceless: The leprechaun in ''Leprechaun Origins'' does not speak, but rather snarls and growls like a feral animal.
