* One for the animators; after Lir falls to the Red Bull, the Unicorn's whole demeanor goes from one of fright, to looking at the Bull as if to say, "You son of a bitch!" The animators capture it perfectly.

**Go on YouTube and search for cover versions of the title song, and watch how many versions come up. That's how memorable the song is.

* Creator/ChristopherLee gives us an absolutely perfect MotiveRant as King Haggard too. A Haggard says that he thought he would ''die'' when he saw his first unicorn. I practically died when I heard him describe it.

** As noted elsewhere, Lee read the book at loved it so much he underlined entire sections he insisted be kept in the film, including the MotiveRant. Without him, it would have been left on the wayside.

* Molly Grue's reaction to Schmendrick celebrating he was able to turn a Unicorn into a mortal woman.
-->'''Schmendrick:''' ''(capering happily)'' The magic chose the shape, not I. I am a bearer, I am a dwelling, I am a messenger!
-->'''Molly:''' You are an '''''idiot!'''''

soundtrack, by folk band America, is considered by fans to be exceptionally haunting CrowningMusicOfAwesome. The opening theme in particular is prone to giving people chills.



* When the Unicorn sees Prince Lir's HeroicSacrifice and decides to charge the Red Bull instead of running from it. She is the first unicorn who had something ''worth fighting back for''. To say nothing of when the Red Bull turns and goes into the sea, defeated -- and then a HORDE of unicorns comes charging up out of the sea, running all around Haggard's castle... which then falls apart and collapses into the sea, with King Haggard [[KarmicDeath falling to his doom]] shrieking in bitter triumph, ''"THE LAST! I KNEW YOU WERE THE LAST!"''

-->'''Molly Grue:''' Then what is magic for? What is the use of wizardry, if it cannot even save a unicorn?
-->'''Schmendrick:''' That's what heroes are for.
-->'''Lir:''' Of course, that is exactly what heroes are for!

* Lir's line before his HeroicSacrifice definitely qualifies.
-->'''Lir:''' Do something, you have the power! I will kill you if you don't do something!
-->'''Schmendrick:''' I cannot! Not all the magic in the world can help her now!
