Nobody died because of their belief in the leprechaun.
* In the Crichton neighborhood of Mobile, AL, a group of [[BlatantLies fine upstanding]] [[TooDumbToLive citizens]] thought they saw a leprechaun in a tree and soon formed a mob of leprechaun catchers intent upon getting "da gold", creating a media frenzy and casting an unflattering light on Alabamians in general with their antics. This video contains a "sketch" of the leprechaun that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nda_OSWeyn8 appeared on the Alabama evening news]]. To date, the leprechaun remains at large.

* Creator/TerryPratchett's [[Litertaure/{{Discworld}} Nac Mac Feegle]] are ''Pictsies'', not leprechauns, and don't you forget it. They are small, though, and they might well have a pot of gold hidden away, because their three favorite things are fightin', drinkin', and stealin' (not necessarily in that order).

** Another Gaiman story, entitled "The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains," features a protagonist who fits the physical description very closely, and is even mistaken for a child several times; [[spoiler: it is revealed that his father was one of TheFairFolk]]. The story can be found [[http://www.fiftytwostories.com/?p=1338 here]].

* ''WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' has the Leprechaun Grill, where [[spoiler: the staff are just dressed up as leprechauns, and they keep one actual leprechaun in a box. Because Corporate demanded they had one to make it look real.]] * The TV miniseries ''MagicalLegendOfTheLeprechauns'' features both the traditional leprechauns (sometimes referred to as solitary fairies) and the winged Trooping Fairies. The leprechauns are your traditional redheaded green-suited drunken pranksters and the fairies are elegant guardians of nature (if a bit snooty). * ''TheAquabatsSuperShow'': "I am ''NOT'' a leprechaun! I am '''‹BERCHAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNNNNNN!!!'''" * An episode of {{Bonanza}} had Hoss encounter what he's sure is leprechauns. They were just circus midgets who decided they no longer wanted to deal with their manager.

[[/folder]] * In the story "Crash" in ''[[Literature/TheModernFaesGuideToSurvivingHumanity The Modern Fae's Guide to Surviving Humanity]]'', a Wall Street trader meets an old man in a pub who tells of how he found a leprechaun [[TheGreatDepression in 1937]] and was conned into accepting three wishes instead of the leprechaun's meager fortune--[[JerkassGenie every wish backfired horribly]]. Soon after, she follows a rainbow to the end of Wall Street and discovers the leprechaun, who turns out to be her boss at the trading firm; he's been rebuilding his wealth since the '30s. Indeed, the trader demands gold instead of wishes, but makes out with millions in bearer bonds instead. Unfortunately, a leprechaun's fortune is magically tied to that of his country, and the last time this particular leprechaun had his wealth stolen was in 1929...

* Leprechauns are a rather common sight in ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDragon''. Jake Long once even rescues one Leprechaun's pot o' gold, in another episode several magical creatures are caught by the Huntsclan - among them, one (very unlucky) leprechaun.
