Wikipedia article

This article is about the current version of DF.
A horse-like creature with a spiral horn growing from its forehead.

Unicorns are large creatures found in good-aligned forests and shrublands, where they spawn in fairly large herds. Somewhat larger than the average horse, unicorns will normally flee when approached by a dwarf, though if cornered, they will attempt to impale them with their horns. Despite this, a crossbow-wielding hunter or an equipped military squad will usually fare well against unicorns, providing your fort with a big equine meal.

Unicorns possess a pet value of 1,000, but dwarves cannot train them without modding. However, elves can freely use unicorns as livestock and mounts, being infamous for riding them into battle during siegesVerify. Since they cannot be trained, the only thing you can do with unicorns is kill and process them. Unicorn products are worth four times as much as domestic animals, making unicorn genocide in the name of profit an attractive proposition.

Some dwarves like unicorns for their horns.

D4Dwarf.png This article or section has been rated D for Dwarf. It may include witty humour, not-so-witty humour, bad humour, in-jokes, and references to the Bay12 forums. Don't believe everything you read, and if you miss some of the references, don't worry. It was inevitable.

Its been rumored that some unicorns (specially purple ones with affinity for books) are able to cast spells making them the among the first creatures to use magic, but as of yet there's no concrete proof of that.

It is also believed that the movement of the sun and the moon is also due to some form of equine magic, but that's just silly as it implies geocentrism and we all know that Armok likes his worlds flat and square.

Admired for their horns.
