Leprechauns are a rare enemy that are found in Volcana, the Jungle, Tide Pool, Temple of Anubis, and the City of Gold. In even rarer circumstances, a Leprechaun may spawn when a Chest is opened.

Behavior

Leprechauns are quick, and will jump around unpredictably similar to Vampires. If they walk over any type of Treasure, they collect it.

If they manage to make contact with the player, They will jump on the player for a second before stunning them like a monkey would.

After doing this, the player will be stunned for roughly 3 full seconds and will drop several gold chunks, which are taken from the player's inventory. The Leprechaun may collect these chunks of gold while the player is stunned, and if they manage to collect enough gold, they will teleport away to a far away, random section of the level. The player may relocate the Leprechaun and retrieve their money if this happens.

Because of their stunning abilities, players can use Leprechauns to enter the Duat when on 1 HP by having one stun them onto the Altar in the City of Gold.

Drops

Upon being killed, they will drop a Four-leaf Clover, as well as any treasure that they may have picked up, either from the player or the level itself.

If a Leprechaun spawned on a level, it also guarantees the spawn of a Pot of Gold, which may be found with the help of the Four-leaf Clover that he drops.

Unusually, Leprechauns are worth 0 favor points when sacrificed at an Altar, meaning they cannot be used to earn a reward from Kali. Despite this, Altars are still a reliable finisher after stunning a Leprechaun, as they will still drop a Four-leaf Clover after being sacrificed.

Trivia

The gold stealing and teleporting properties of Leprechauns are a reference to Nethack.
