''Film/LeprechaunInTheHood'' takes place sometime between the third and fourth films, with the action moved back to L.A. ''Film/LeprechaunBack2ThaHood'' is an indirect sequel to the previous film, but recycles the plot of the third film. It was also the last film to star Davis in the title role. Of the entire franchise, the ''Hood'' films were the only other entries besides the original to receive a [[Website/RottenTomatoes Tomatometer]] score higher than 0%.

A 1993 horror-comedy film that spawned a franchise. In all six (6!) installments, none of which seem to have any sort of continuity, the titular character is played by Creator/WarwickDavis.

In the original ''[[color:green:Leprechaun]]'', a family moves into a rural house and discovers not only a pot of gold, but the rightful owner. The leprechaun will kill any who touches his gold, but has a weakness to wrought iron and four-leaf clovers (they cancel out his magic). They are finally able to [[KillItWithFire kill it (with fire)]]. Or do they?

In [[Film/{{Leprechaun 2}} Part 2]], the leprechaun resurfaces in L.A. and tries to force a woman to be his bride while her boyfriend tries to stop him.

In [[Film/{{Leprechaun 3}} Part 3]], the title creature is awakened in Las Vegas, and sets out to reclaim his gold. A new "rule" was added, that said if you get bitten by a leprechaun, you will turn into one, unless you kill him. Also, each leprechaun has a "lucky" gold piece, that will grant whoever holds it one wish.

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]], whom the leprechaun 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!

''Film/LeprechaunInTheHood'' takes place sometime between Parts 3 & 4, only the action is moved back to L.A.

''Film/LeprechaunBack2ThaHood'' is basically a rehashing of Part 3 in the setting of Part 5.

In 2014, Lionsgate and Wrestling/{{WWE}} Films released a DarkerAndEdgier reboot, ''Film/LeprechaunOrigins'', starring Dylan "Wrestling/{{Hornswoggle}}" Postl as the creature.

And contrary to what Syfy wants you to believe, ''Leprechaun's Revenge'' is not a sequel to ''Leprechaun''. The 2019 film ''Leprechaun Returns'', on the other hand...

* FanService: Some relatively tame fanservice occurs in the original - Tori spends the whole film in short shorts, and a chase scene filmed from The Leprechaun's point of view means we get an extended look at her legs and rear end as she runs.

Added DiffLines:

* HardToLightFire: In the prologue, Dan O'Grady tries to burn the leprechaun alive inside its crate, but the match goes out and he dies of a HollywoodHeartAttack before he can light another.
