** Basic/Expert/etc D&D had actual unicorns with healing powers, and also attributed similar powers to ''narwhals'', making them the unicorn's marine counterpart rather than just a funny-looking whale.

* The title creature of the novelty song "Purple People Eater" is described in the first verse as having "one long horn", although it's not stated specifically if it's on the creature's forehead.

* ''Summer Knight'', the fourth in JimButcher's ''TheDresdenFiles'', features a creepy, almost H.R. Giger-esque entity Harry believes is a Unseelie unicorn that's so aggressive, it could give Pliny's unicorn a run for its money.

* In ''The Dragon Factory'', the second novel in Jonathan Mayberry's ''Literature/JoeLedger'' series, the discovery of a video of an apparently real unicorn being hunted for sport is the first indication that someone has invented a potentially dangerous form of genetic engineering.

*''Literature/JourneyToChaos'' Unicorns are revered by medical mages like Nolien because they are natural healers. Their horns, for instance, could purify tainted water. [[spoiler: In ''Mana Mutation Menace'', he mutates into a brand new breed of unicorn. It is one that has bird-like talons in addition to hooves, a single useless wing, and patches of scales. Given that he becomes a ''monster'' unicorn, he is not gentle, unless he is around his LoveInterest, Tiza.]]

* From Music/{{Gloryhammer}}'s first album, ''Tales from the Kingdom of Fife'', we get a subversion of the usual unicorn tropes: These unicorns are undead and dangerous, under the control of EvilSorcerer Zargothrax. It is sung that
-->The unicorns used to be good
-->Now they are forced to serve Hell.
-->-- "The Unicorn Invasion of Dundee"
** On the second album, ''Space 1992: Rise of the Chaos Wizards'', it is revealed that the "Questlords of Inverness" can travel through time, and are called "Unicorn Defenders, Unafraid to Die" in "Questlords of Inverness, ride to the Galactic Fortress."

* One Conan the Barbarian comic from the B&W super-sized comics had him 'hired' to retrieve the horn of Unicorn for a ruler who had heard it would cure his impotence. Said unicorn has nothing in common with the myth other than being an equine with a horn, being black and its valley populated by the bones particularly the skulls of everyone who'd tried to capture or kill it. As one of the few survivors of Conan's party after he gives up he tells another survivor to simply take and give the king some ground of bone from some other creature and lie about it being unicorn horn rather than continue in the fool's folly to try and kill the unicorn.

* Can be unlocked in the first ''VideoGame/ZooTycoon'' game by naming a exhibit "{{Xanadu}}". Interestingly, the males are black and orange and the females white. They also sound exactly like the zebras in the game. You could chalk it up to lazy programing, but they bothered to give the wild horses proper neighs...
