* The ''khara'' (or "Persian Three-Legged Ass" as most English-language books call it, thanks to Creator/JorgeLuisBorges) ranks as the ''weirdest'' version of the unicorn myth. Ancient texts from the Persian Empire describe it as a colossal one-horned monster resembling a donkey with six eyes and nine mouths. It stands in the middle of the ocean, smites the wicked, and commands all sea creatures. [[AnimalisticAbomination Yeah...]]

* Creator/OsamuTezuka's ''Manga/{{Unico}}'' is a gentle and cheerful unicorn foal with the ability to spread love and friendship to whomever he meets. However, the gods are not happy with this incredible power, so they initially try to kill him. Eventually, they settle on having Unico exiled to a faraway place where he cannot be found, forever cursed to wander the lands just for making others happy.
