Though we already had that definition under blessing, I've added a link from this entry too. ~ Röbin Liönheart (talk) 04:43, 19 December 2012 (UTC)
I also see a surprise of unicorns, with two actual uses.--Prosfilaes (talk) 03:46, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
Actually both your cites come from "The Boy Who Drew Unicorns" by Jane Yolan, published in two different books. ~ Röbin Liönheart (talk) 09:52, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

unihorn[edit]

NetHack players often informally refer to a unicorn's horn (a magical item in the game) as "unihorns"; see Usenet newsgroups: [1]. This will not pass WT:FICTION unless players of other roguelikes use the same terminology, which I can't ascertain. (Most uses of "unihorn", though, are sentences in books like "why aren't unicorns called unihorns?".) Equinox 13:36, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
