Four Leaf Clover = Good luck charm.

Four leaf clovers tend to have special significance when they appear in media.

More info.

Just need some examples. (Rolling Updates)

  • Negima!?! Yue gives one to Nodoka to give to Negi as support for her Crush on him. (Even though its a Love Triangle between the 3.)
    • The Cook Satsuki Yotsuba is named after this.
    • In the first anime series 100 of these are needed for a love potion spent all night looking for them. (This is different in the manga when Negi had 7 magic pills That were placed in his bag by his cousin, that could help craft the thing.)
  • Yotsuba&! her hair is even shaped like one.
    • She gives one to Asagi as a souvenir, reminding Asagi's mother of when Asagi gave one to her... and she tasked her with finding a five-leaf clover.
  • Kingdom of Loathing has a Ten-Leafed Clover as an item, and it triggers certain "lucky" special events to happen if you have one in your inventory.
  • In the Futurama episode "The Luck of the Fryrish", we see via flashback that young Fry had a seven-leaf clover that gave him the necessary luck to win basketball games or pull off crazy breakdancing moves.
  • In Mostly Harmless, there's an alternate-universe Earth where--due a stray bit of radiation affecting the genome of the first clover plant--four-leaf clovers are the norm and three-leaf clovers are the exception. This particular Earth also didn't get destroyed by the Vogons to make way for a hyperspace bypass. Coincidence? It gets destroyed in the end by the updated Guide, anyway.
  • Cross Game uses a four leaf clover motif. With each sister representing a leaf.
  • One of the marshmallows in Lucky Charms breakfast cereals.
