Leprechaun is a magical little fellow who guards his pot o' gold at the end of the rainbow at all costs, even if it escalates to a pinch battle. He makes appearances in two Teen Titans Go! episodes- "Driver's Ed" and "Beast Boy's St. Patrick's Day Luck and it's Bad".
When Robin was serving as Ed's getaway driver in "Driver's Ed", he crossed a colorful rainbow road, and for the heck of it looted the pot of gold, too. This obviously irritated the nearby Leprechaun, a short, green-wearing Irishman. He drew his holstered golden revolver and shot four rounds at the two, but no bullets hit...
Later, when the other Titans were pursuing the duo in an ill-fated chase, their ride was soaring through space, and then fell back down to the base of the rainbow. Unfortunately for Leprechaun, they landed squarely on him, which sorta crushed him.
In order to free them from the St. Patrick's Day hex of bad luck, Cyborg and the others set up a picnic to lure in a couple of leprechauns (they were counting on two of em' to get all mushy with each other to make a rainbow). Emerging from a nearby shrub, Leprechaun advanced on the heavenly corned beef. While devouring the food, he met the love of his life, a she-leprechaun (yet weirdly bearded...). The couple's love formed a rainbow for the Titans to traverse and grab some gold, which should nullify the curse.
However, Leprechaun wasn't about to hand out his prize to anyone; it was his only momentum of his immediately divorced wife, marriage lasting about 2 minutes. No, the only way the Titans could receive treasure is by a duel of pinches. Robin, secretly a leprechaun himself, accepted the challenge and engaged him. Leprechaun unleashes a barrage of pinches at Robin, then knocked him back with a mega-charged pinch. But Robin quickly backlashed, with a colossal pinch punch. Leprechaun was then crunched so ferociously, he was forced to submit his gold to the others. The rival leprechauns become friends, but they quickly fallout when Leprechaun's wife returned.

Barely two feet in height, Leprechaun in "Drivers Ed" wears a green-shaded vest over a white, long-sleeved undershirt. A golden belt buckle holds his green leggings up, and he also owns a pair of black buckled shoes. Leprechaun also proudly wears a full red beard, with a small tuft of hair upon his head. He has a rich green-shaded top hat with a clover sticking out the brim, and he's armed with a gilded pistol, which seems to be something like a Colt Peacemaker.

Teen Titans Trivia
- It's not entirely certain if Leprechaun from "Driver's Ed" is the same character from "Beast Boy's St. Patrick's Day Luck and it's Bad". They have differentiating appearances, and he one from "Driver's Ed" could've assumed his very minor role for simple comedy, unlike in the other episode.
- He is an obvious reference to the leprechaun, a mythological figure from Irish folklore
