The maiden then tells her fiance that clearly her singing would attract any unicorn if they still existed, so this must prove they don't exist and she is free to marry him. The Unicorn explains to her companions that she didn't appear because she knew it would only terrify the poor woman instead, so the kindest thing was to stay away and ignore the effort to call her.

The parodic scene will generally start the same way as described above and then take a sharp turn into audacity or tragedy (e.g. the heroine lures the critters in to cook and eat them). Other times the usual formula plays out straight and the joke is that the writers have copied a scene without even ''pretending'' they didn't take it straight from ''Disney/SnowWhite''. (Even though gentle or pure characters attracting animals is OlderThanTheyThink, Disney films are the most iconic examples for most viewers). In shows with particularly high trope content, the woodland critters [[AvertedTrope may not appear at all]], leaving the heroine puzzled or annoyed by their absence.
