* {{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.

!!This series contains examples of the following 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: Leprechaun usually goes for the legs.
* AlienBlood: Leprechaun bleeds green.
* AntagonistTitle
%%* AttackOfTheKillerWhatever

* DarkerAndEdgier: ''Leprechaun: Origins'' is going this direction.



* DolledUpInstallment: ''Leprechaun's Revenge'' was advertised as a new movie in this series despite not being related at all.

* 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.
** 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 time to polish shoes.

''Leprechaun in Da Hood'' takes place sometime between Parts 3 & 4, only the action is moved back to L.A. A local hoodlum (Ice T!) discovers the leprechauns gold, and in the ensuing struggle accidentally tosses the gold medallion from Part 3 around it's neck, trapping it in stone. Among his newly acquired treasure, he comes across a golden flute that gives it's owner great musical talent. Flash forward several years, and he is now a successful rap producer. One night, three aspiring singers rob his office in retaliation for denying them a record deal. They steal the flute and the medallion, unwittingly releasing the leprechaun... [[CaptainObvious in da hood]].

''Leprechaun: Back 2 Da Hood'' is basically a rehashing of Part 2 in the setting of Part 5.

And contrary to what Syfy wants you to believe, Leprechaun's Revenge is not a sequel to Leprechaun.
