Cleprechaun was a lightweight robot which competed in the final two seasons of BattleBots. It was a black T-shaped robot armed with an undercutting spinning disc (later a spinning bar). It performed decently in competition, reaching the round of 128 in its final season.
After BattleBots ended, it competed in other events under the name Junk Mail.The name is a pun on both leprechaun and the builder's last name, Clepper.
Season 4.0Cleprechaun's only match was against Rolling Blackout. Cleprechaun's first blade hit on Rolling Blackout bent the blade so that it was hitting some part of Cleprechaun's exterior, slowing itself down. The damage to Rolling Blackout looked minimal. Rolling Blackout pushed and shoved the now-harmless Cleprechaun around and into walls for the remainder of the match. Eventually Cleprechaun adopted a tried-and-true "run away" strategy, and managed to avoid further shoving by Rolling Blackout. It still lost, 27-18.
