The Unicorn is one of the few magical creatures not meant to inspire fear, unlike dragons
, or chimeras
. In most video games where Unicorns appear, they are enchanted, tranquil beasts. Their horns commonly have magical properties. In Castle Crashers
, for example, a unicorn horn can be employed as a weapon. Conversely, in Viva Pinata
, Unicorn horns can be used for healing. According to Leonardo da Vinci, the ideal method of capturing a Unicorn was to have a virgin in your midst. A Unicorn that sees a "fair maiden" is said to lower its inhibitions, and fall asleep in its lap shortly afterward. This would give you an opportunity to catch the Unicorn.
