The Unicorn is one of the creatures in ARK: Survival Evolved.

Basic Info

Behavior

The Unicorn will appear as a rare variant of the  Equus, passively trotting around The Island. When in the presence of a  Human, they will become startled and run away. Only one wild Unicorn may exist at a time, making these creatures even more difficult to find.

Appearance

The Unicorn is similar to the  Equus, with the only noticeable differences being the white color, is slightly higher and the horn that protrudes out of the Unicorn's head.

Color Scheme and Regions

X mark.svg

The Unicorn always spawns with the same color scheme and has no color regions.

This means it is currently impossible to make alterations to the Unicorn's colors.

Taming

All numbers in these charts are inaccurate as of now. Still need more testing before saying by how much with any accuracy. For now have AT LEAST 10 extra Kibble for Kibble tames so as not to be under and lose the tame due to having to jump off.

Preferred Food

Taming Strategy

Disambig.png Main article:  Equus

Much like the  Equus, the Unicorn requires  Ghillie Armor and a substantial amount of Taming food. However, be aware that Unicorns are much rarer, and thus must be handled more carefully.

You can also pick it up with an Argentavis and drop it in a large pen make sure it can't run into danger.

Do not use any material used to knock out the unicorn, as it will kill it. Using the Tusoteuthis isn't recommended, as it will also kill it.

Notes/Trivia

For information pertaining specifically to the real-world Unicorn, see the relevant Wikipedia article.

  • On single player if you've already tamed one you will have to cryopod it and wait 24 hours of real time gameplay before another wild one will spawn
  • Unicorns mostly spawn in west zones 1 and 2 on The Island, but are still relatively rare.
  • Wild Unicorns have a yellow outline while viewed with  Tek Helmet in scan mode.
  • Unicorns can breed with other Unicorns, but cannot do so with other  Equus.
  • The  Dermis of an Unicorn will display as  Equus instead.
  • Contrary to a popular belief, Unicorns do not increase the chance for twins or triplets to be born.
  • On Valguero and Crystal Isles there may be more than 1 unicorn at the same time
