** It's entirely possible Schmendrick ''couldn't'' turn her into a human again. He seems to think the magic has a long term plan in mind. "Magic, do as you will" turned the unicorn into a human because it was the only way to protect her from the Red Bull and get her safely to King Haggard - discovering what happened to the others in the process. But she had to become a unicorn again to stop the Red Bull, and she only did that because of her love for Lir and outrage over his death. So the magic only allowed her to become human because it would give her the tools to stop the bull. As a unicorn she also has responsibilities to her forest etc so that's her natural state.


** The book seems to suggest that magic works on its own and only comes at times rather than Schmendrick having full control of it. Besides, the more time she passed as a human, it was suggested that she would forget her true identity completely. Even with all the unicorns back into the world, it would still be sad for her to forget herself.

* Much ado is made about turning Amalthea back into a unicorn which would make her incapable of loving Lir and being together with him since she would outlive but why does the option of turning her back into a human never come up. Turning Amalthea back into a unicorn when the characters couldn’t be sure they could find the rest of the unicorns was understandable since they’d be no more unicorns in the world otherwise. But after the rest of the unicorns are rescued and Amalthea has been turned back into a unicorn, why doesn’t Schmendrick try to turn her back into a human since Amalthea wanted to remain a human and only turned back to defeat the Red Bull and with unicorns back in the world it’s not like one less unicorn would be noticed. Perhaps it could’ve been impossible or not but the point is, Schmendrick didn’t even try.

* The reason Haggard's land was so barren was because there were no unicorns to keep it verdant; they were all trapped in the sea.

* For many, ''many'' viewers, Molly's rant when she first meets the unicorn flew over their heads as kids. Coming back to it after having learned the mythology of unicorns, though, can break someone into tears quite quickly (as evidenced by its presence on the [[TearJerker/TheLastUnicorn Tearjerker]] page).

* After watching ''The Last Unicorn'', I realized that adds a perfect subtext to [[spoiler: Helios being inside Chibiusa's Dream Mirror]] in ''Anime/SailorMoon''. Unicorns are supposed to appear to virgins. Helios thought Sailor Moon was supposed to help him, but he had really seen [[spoiler: Chibiusa's future self]]; by the time she was born, Usagi wasn't a virgin anymore. - @/MsDevin92
