Leprechauns on the other hand appear to have roughly similar structures to humans and trolls, albeit oftentimes far tinier or bulkier, but are limited by the fact they are usually homosexual, though this barrier is not so great between them and trolls. Karkat Vantas is the only character in Homestuck to have had a Leprechaun convey romance for them, which occurred during the Collide animation upon his defeat of Clover from The Felt. Shipping, the act of speculating on romantic relationships between characters, is heavily referenced and explored inside of Homestuck, to the point it somewhat meta-references how the fandom surrounding Homestuck is obsessed with shipping characters together. A lusus is a beast that chooses a troll based on scent upon the troll emerging victorious from their trials. Ectobiology is notable in Homestuck for changing reproduction to an entirely mechanical process for humans and trolls, with their biological DNA ectobiologically cloned and mixed by a machine into a new person through a mechanical act of sex, entirely circumventing the normal biological process.

Leprechauns strive to have as many charms in a relationship as possible, the more being the better, with three charms or more being considered a trove.

Troll society has a notably large amount of aggression and hate infused into its romantic system. Homestuck states there is only one primary form of human romance, known as "love," with partners that are referred to as matesprits, and is represented by the heart symbol. A lusus is a beast that chooses a troll based on scent upon the troll emerging victorious from their trials. For much of Homestuck, gender is used in a similar simplistic manner as in Problem Sleuth. There, the losing cherub will lay an egg and leave the nesting grounds.
