For those lucky enough to breed a Unicorn Dragon, they will find themselves a very affectionate and faithful companion. Unicorn Dragons are gentle creatures, and will often follow around their caretakers as they tend to other dragons around the island. This is especially true of the foals (baby Unicorn Dragon), which are rarely absent from their caretaker's side.
Unicorn Dragons are so scarce that they had been thought to be extinct at various points throughout their history. Due to their temperate disposition, many caretakers believe that Unicorn Dragons can only be born on islands where the pure-of-heart dwell.
As Unicorn Dragons mature, they grow tufts of multi-colored hair on their tails. These tail hairs retain a vibrant quality since they are encrusted with specks of diamonds, making it shimmer in the sunlight. Caretakers collect tail hair that Unicorn Dragons shed, as it is very valuable; it is a key component in expensive jewelry, clothing fabric, and rope.
Epic Unicorn Dragons actually have two fully-grown horns on their heads: one on their foreheads and one on the bridge of their snout. Though both these are striking, Unicorn Dragons remain very docile creatures; however, the horns do manage to keep potential enemies away, such as poachers or diamond traders.
By breeding two dragons that collectively contribute Diamond and Pink to the type pool. If a parent has the appropriate minor types, missing requirements may also be added to the pool, even if neither parent has the originally required types. Minor types that have been split from other minor types can also contribute their component types to the type pool.
DISCLAIMER: When attempting to breed the Unicorn Dragon, you may get other offspring instead. Check the Breeding Calculator to view all of the possible results of combining a particular pair of parents.
The Unicorn Dragon has special behavior when it is used as a breeding parent. Unlike dragons with only basic types, it will obey the following rules:
When the Pink type is alone in the pool, it will add pure dragons of its component types (Red and White) to the list of possible outcomes, but it will not split into its component types. When Pink is included in the pool along with one or more other types, the Pink type can split into Red and White. However, if it is split, then Pink is no longer in the pool for the duration. Thus, the presence of Pink in a pool will either add the Pink type if it does not split or the Red and White types if it does split. There is one exception to this rule, and that is when both parents possess the Pink type. In this case, Pink can contribute both itself and its split colors at the same time.
Although the Pink type can split into Red and White for breeding purposes, it still only counts as one type. This is important when considering the number of types for type-amount-dependent dragons such as the Diamond Dragon. Breeding a Forest Dragon with a Unicorn Dragon only counts as three types: Green, Pink, and Diamond.
A pure dragon of its component types (ex: Fire and Light for the Pink type, which is made up of Red and White)
Any currently available hybrid that can be bred using those two parents, with or without the minor type splitting (There are many possibilities for an individual pair; check the Breeding Calculator to see them)
When a breeding pair contains Diamond and at least two other different types, Diamond is then treated as its own type under normal rules and any possible offspring using that pair of parents can emerge. To check the list of possible dragons using a particular pair of parents, use the Breeding Calculator.
The Unicorn Dragon is the seventh hybrid dragon with the Diamond type.
A Unicorn is a legendary animal from European folklore said to embody purity and grace.
The Unicorn Dragon's design is based upon the Diamond Dragon's, although there are differences between the two.
