Sam: Wait. So now unicorns are evil?
Dean: Yeah. Obviously.

Sam and Dean Winchester, 7.14 Plucky Pennywhistle's Magical Menagerie


While unicorns have been mentioned in Supernatural, they were believed to be non-existent. The unicorn in 7.14 Plucky Pennywhistle's Magical Menagerie was not a true creature; rather, it was manifestation of a child's fear through the use of hoodoo. However, in 9.16 Blade Runners, a unicorn skull can be spotted multiple times in the episode.


2.13 Houses of the Holy

Dean is skeptical when Sam suggests angels may exist:

Dean: Well, little odd yes, supernatural maybe. But angels? I don't think so.

Sam: Why not?
Dean: 'Cuz there's no such thing, Sam.
Sam: Dean, there's ten times as much lore about angels as there is about anything else we've ever hunted.
Dean: Yeah, you know what? There's a ton of lore on unicorns too. In fact, I hear that they, they ride on silver moonbeams, and they shoot rainbows out of their ass.
Sam: Wait, there's no such thing as unicorns?

Dean: That's cute.
