Continuity mistake: During a fight scene with the Leprechaun you can see a very noticeable difference in height between Warwick Davis (Leprechaun), and his stunt double. (00:52:20)

Revealing mistake: The 'bear trap' clearly has no spikes in it, so how could it have wounded Nathan. This is ever so clear when Tori prises the bear trap open to get his leg out, and it snaps back. (00:52:00)

Revealing mistake: Near the end of the film, when the people are in the house fighting the Leprechaun, one of the characters is using a shotgun. The Leprechaun rides up and down a hallway on a skateboard and the character with the shotgun shoots at him, missing not only the Leprechaun, but everything else as well. Unless he was using a round full of confetti that I've never heard of, he should be shooting the wall and everything else in sight, yet nothing at all is hit. (01:06:50)

Continuity mistake: When the guys walk into the kitchen to find it very messy, with rubbish all over the floor, the wall with the phone on it has nothing against it, but in the next shot, a red broom is leaning against the wall. (00:46:05 - 00:47:10)

Continuity mistake: Officer Tripet gets tired of running and he slumps down against a tree. His places his left arm up on the trunk and it slides down so that now his hand is down atop his knee. The shot changes to his front and now the hand and arm are back up on the tree trunk above his shoulder.

Continuity mistake: When the Leprechaun gets out of the crate, he walks toward Ozzy, who backs away. As he crawls backwards the towel on his shoulder falls off. In following shots it's back on. (00:21:45)

Visible crew/equipment: When the Leprechaun is riding the cart with the pitchfork on it, as the pitchfork rams into the side of the van, on the left you can see the clear shadow of a camera on a crane and crew. (00:56:20)
