"Unicorns are the essence of good magic. If anything, they should enhance our powers, not steal them."
Phoebe Halliwell on Unicorns[src]

Unicorns are mythical beasts from an unknown Magical Realm.

They are described as the essence of good magic and their horns are pure concentrated magic. When dust is scraped off their horn, it can be used to empower spells and powers and to vanquish evil beings, even when no other magic is available.


"Okay, Paige, while unicorns may be very magical and cool, I'm not so sure it's appropriate for a baby."
Phoebe to Paige.[src]

Shorty before the birth of Wyatt Halliwell, the Halliwell Manor was showered with gifts from the Magical Community. Among the gifts was a Unicorn with a card around its neck saying it was from "From El". Paige originally believed it was sent by someone in Spain, though after magic had disappeared, Phoebe reasoned it had come from the Elders instead to help them.

The sisters used the dust from the Unicorn's horn to vanquish Cronyn, Doris, and Stanley, who had attempted to steal Piper's child. Leo also used some of it to heal Victor Bennett's wound.

After the Source of All Evil was resurrected in the form of a golem, the Charmed Ones collected good magic from all kinds of magical beings to help them vanquish him once and for all, including the magic of a Unicorn horn.

Notes and Trivia[]

  • It is noticeable that the horn is tied around the horse's head multiple times.
  • A unicorn also appeared on the cover of "The Old Witcheroo".
  • In the novel Leo Rising, a sliver of unicorn horn is used for Leo to cast a spell powerful enough to summon his sons from the future.
