* In ''[[VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth Ace Attorney Investigations 2]]'', there's a statue of a winged unicorn on top of the PIC's roof. It's titled "Contradiction", since being either a unicorn or the mythical [[Characters/ClassicalMythologyMonsters Pegasus]] is mutually exclusive. Since the [[NoExportForYou fan translation]] of the game was made during a period between 2013 and 2015, with all of the applicants being denizens of the internet, it was almost guaranteed that at least one of them would have been a fan of ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic that show]]'', and someone wasted no time [[ShoutOut coming up with a reference]].

[[TheMerch Trading cards]] previously [[http://theponyartcollection.tumblr.com/post/26391355776 listed]] them as being Pegasi and unicorns but not Earth ponies, and [[http://imgur.com/a/wANNz#GG1rT68 have]] [[http://imgur.com/a/wANNz#qACi5v9 since]] [[http://imgur.com/a/wANNz#qdfTkEw listed]] them as being all three.

A winged unicorn is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a unicorn with wings]]. The idea would be to combine [[RuleOfCool all the mobility of a flying creature with grace and rarity (and occasionally magical ability) of a unicorn]]. Also known as an pegacorn, unipeg, or cerapter,[[note]] ''keros'' (horn) + ''pteros'' (wing)[[/note]] but (popularised by ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'') the most familiar term to use for this species was ''Alicorn'', which is a combination of the French words for wing (''aile'') and horn (''corne''). [[note]]Note that in French, the word for unicorn is also ''licorne''. [[CallAPegasusAHippogriff However, be careful with this usage because the word alicorn also refers to the horn of a unicorn itself]], ''a li'' translating to "secured" (so ''a li corne'' meaning "secured horn"). "Alicorn" was also historically (in the 17th century) occasionally used to mean a mythical, heraldic animal, resembling a bull with wavy horns.[[/note]]
