See also: MoralEventHorizon, {{Unicorn}}. Often leads to the BrokenAngel trope. A similar role is sometimes filled by TheMarvelousDeer. Contrast HellishHorse.

* In Creator/RogerZelazny's ''Literature/ChroniclesOfAmber'', even the royal family of Amber, with literally god-like powers, regard the unicorn as special. Oberon made the creature their crest after glimpsing one in a sacred grove.

* in the ''ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}}'' strip, when he is assignrd to the Marketing department as a punishment, Dilbert discovers a group of otherworldly Elf-like types who boast every Friday as unicorn barbecue day. (Naturally, the eternal loser Dilbert gets the bun with the horn in). But elsewhere in the Dilbert universe, we are told Marketing is a place of great and terrible primal evil... (in other strips, Marketing and Sales conspire to make life Hell for engineers by selling things they haven't designed yet. Hell: Marketing sell things that haven't been invented yet and which are generally scientifically impossible...).

* In ''Film/{{Legend}}'', unicorns are treated as ethereal beings so holy it would upset the order of the universe for a mortal to touch one. Killing the last two unicorns that guard the power of light would allow the demon lord to roam the world freely in darkness. Also, the BigBad shows just how evil he is by ordering a unicorn's horn to be cut off, which causes the world to freeze over.

* ''Series/{{Merlin}}'' had The Labyrinth of Gedref. Arthur killed a unicorn despite Merlin warning him against it, and Camelot was cursed. Arthur had to succeed at three tests to prove his worth in order to lift the curse. He almost failed, but passed when he attempted to drink the allegedly poisoned potion to save Merlin. In the end, he buried the unicorn horn and the unicorn came back to life.

* ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' Inverted the Trope ''completely'' with a MonsterOfTheWeek called the Polluticorn, an evil unicorn that was trying to destroy the world by despoiling it with pollution. (You'd think Rita had taken a page from a ''WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanet'' villain's playbook.) Ironically, this was a complete 180 from the monster's ''Series/SuperSentai'' equivalent, which was a WellIntentionedExtremist who hated humans [[GaiasVengeance for polluting the Earth and making mythical creatures such as unicorns extinct.]]

* Implied in ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}:'' When Cyril ends up shooting the last few people who can fly the space shuttle back to earth, he gets chewed out by Lana and Sterling, who cared more that he shot a black astronaut than he got them stuck in space.
