Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInJerkass: As mentioned above. The Leprechaun isn't exactly a ''nice'' guy in the earlier films, but the vast majority of his victims are those who steal his gold or try to destroy him, and he'll happily leave most humans alone. In this movie he goes out of his way to murder people, seemingly for the fun of it.

Added DiffLines:

* KickTheDog: The leprechaun is meaner than normal in this film. He horrifically kills a transvestite for no reason at all while having sex with them, and later has his mind controlled slaves start kidnapping people for him to kill just for fun.

Added DiffLines:

* KnownOnlyByTheirNickname: None of the main characters, with the possible exception of Butch (which could be his real name) are referred to by anything other than their stage names.


* DreamWithinADream: Postmaster P. awakes from a dream about the Leprechaun maiming his grandmother. He then gets up to answer the door and finds his dead friend covered in blood, waking him up the second time.

* BullyingADragon: [[spoiler: Postmaster P stole The Leprechaun's flute to fulfil the group's dreams of fame. He causes the deaths of his friends when he tries to prove himself. Stray Bullet is killed when Postmaster P tries to take the flute back after The Leprechaun insults him and he causes the death of Butch when goes back to steal the flute.]]

Added DiffLines:

* EyeScream: Happens to the Leprechaun in a dream sequence.

Added DiffLines:

* TheCameo: Coolio makes a rather baffling appearance when the heroes perform at a church.


Added DiffLines:

* EvilVersusEvil: Mack Daddy and the Leprechaun have a long history, and spend as much time fighting each other as the protagonists.


* DownerEnding: [[spoiler:It looks like the necklace has frozen the Leprechaun again. We then cut to sometime later, as Postmaster P is onstage, a success, but at the cost of his moral code and his friends' lives. However, he looks at the camera and removes his sunglasses, revealing his glowing green eyes. Not only has the Leprechaun survived, but he's taken control of Post, and if the end credits rap is considered canon to the film, he regains his control over the zombie fly girls. (Unless this is a depiction of their original enslavement shown out of order.) This remains the only film in which the Leprechaun [[TheBadGuyWins remains unvanquished]]]].

A hoodlum named Mack Daddy (Music/IceT) discovers the leprechauns gold, and in the ensuing struggle accidentally tosses the gold medallion from part three around it's neck, [[TakenForGranite 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... in da hood.
