* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Ducktales}}'', "[[Recap/DuckTalesS1E3LuckOTheDucks Luck 'O' the Ducks]]", When Scrooge and 'the gang' went to Ireland. These leprechauns ''really'' didn't like thieves or intruders, and almost dumped the group into their snake pit; fortunately, when the king found out that they had been invited by another leprechaun (even though the guy was a SnakeOilSalesman that none of them liked) he figured he [[SacredHospitality really couldn't do that]]. (Curiously, this group of leprechauns ''did'' include females.)

** In a St Patrick's Day parade that turns into a massive brawl, two leprachauns, [[TheTroubles one in green, one in orange]] are seen enthusiastically beating seven kinds out of each other.

[[Myth/CelticMythology Irish myth]] agrees on these basic points: They're the size of children [[LittleGreenMen and favour green clothing]] ([[BringMyRedJacket when they don't wear red]]). Leprechauns can become invisible, but if you happen to see one, catch him quick and make him tell you where his pot of gold is hidden (they all have one...[[InexplicableTreasureChests for some reason]]). If you take your eye off him for even a moment though, he'll vanish again and you'll never find him. The Leprechaun is a tricky creature and will do his very best to wriggle out of showing you his gold. He isn't always malicious but he doesn't appreciate being bullied either, so if you get a wish out of him, BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor because he may well pull a JackassGenie on you.

[[Myth/CelticMythology Irish myth]] agrees on these basic points: They're the size of children [[LittleGreenMen and wear green coats]] ([[BringMyRedJacket when they don't wear red]]). Leprechauns can become invisible, but if you happen to see one, catch him quick and make him tell you where his pot of gold is hidden (they all have one...[[InexplicableTreasureChests for some reason]]). If you take your eye off him for even a moment, he'll vanish again and you'll never find him. They may also use trickery or act as a LiteralGenie (or occasionally a JackassGenie) to weasel out of giving it to you. They are presumed to be flawed offspring of TheFairFolk with some kind of genetic defect because [[OneGenderRace they're all male]]. They tend to work as shoemakers for the rest of TheFairFolk.

TheFairFolk and have a fascination with shining and repairing shoes. If you pay a Leprechaun to shine your shoes, these shoes will always bring you good luck.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/AmericanGods2017'': Mad Sweeney claims to be one despite him and Shadow both being big guys and lacking an accent. He's got a lot of the traits in common including red hair and doing tricks with gold coins. He's also got the stereotypical Irish traits including drinking, loving to fight, and has a hell of a temper.

* ''The Leprechaun's Christmas Gold'' is a ChristmasSpecial featuring leprechauns, made by the same animators that made ''WesternAnimation/RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer''. It's an okay story about a young boy protecting a hospitable leprechaun community's gold from an evil banshee, but it was never very popular. (Probably because Christmas just isn't the holiday where one thinks about them...)

* The Halflings of ''AgeOfWonders'' use Leprechauns as their most powerful unit, which are actually rate the status-they're naturally invisible on the world map, have respectable melee abilities and a ranged attack, and are exceedingly frustrating to attack due to their superior defensive abilities. Oh, and they do magical damage, which is the hardest damage type to get protection against.
