Rainbows and unicorns are a great match. Sunshine, unicorns and rainbows, and some glitter on top. What else do you need? Unicorns even eat rainbows; read more about that on the post on unicorns’ diet.
But is there such a thing as a “rainbow unicorn”? What is a rainbow unicorn? Is it a unicorn species, or are all unicorns rainbow unicorns, whatever that means? This is a mystery we are going to solve today!
What Is a Rainbow Unicorn? – A White Body, a Rainbow Colored Mane and Tail
Rainbow unicorns seem to be all over the place these days. There are so many rainbow unicorn goods available; toys, clothes, games… A YouTuber has uploaded a video on how she became a rainbow unicorn. I just found out there is even an energy drink called “Rainbow unicorn”!
With all these rainbow unicorn products, and even rainbow unicorn people, it’s amazing how little information there is available on what exactly is a rainbow unicorn.
The most visible features of a rainbow unicorn are its rainbow colored mane and tail. Actually, the rainbow colored mane and tail are the only features that make the rainbow unicorn visibly different from the classic unicorn.
The coat of the rainbow unicorn is white, the same color as the traditional coat color of the classic European unicorn.
The Amazing Living Habits of the Rainbow Unicorn
The appearance of the rainbow unicorn seems to be everything most people know about this colorful unicorn species.
Yes, I think we can call the rainbow unicorn a unicorn species. It is a very modern unicorn species; the numerous rainbow unicorn products have appeared very recently.
There’s almost no information available on the living habits of the rainbow unicorn, but I managed to find out something.
The rainbow unicorns enjoy living a more individual lifestyle than the European unicorns. Rainbow unicorns like solitude more than living in a group, unlike the classic unicorns that prefer living in small family groups.
You might imagine rainbow unicorns would live on sunny fields, but surprisingly, they often live in isolated, damp areas. They even like swamps.
Rainbow unicorns are known to be able to control the weather.
Famous Rainbow Unicorns
As I mentioned, rainbow unicorns are super popular these days, so it’s not surprising they can also be found in popular culture.
A rainbow unicorn is seen on the Disney/Pixar animated film Inside Out. The rainbow unicorn character, called Rainbow Unicorn, is an imaginary friend and an actress. She has a rainbow colored mane like a rainbow unicorn is expected. In the movie, Rainbow Unicorn has starred in a dream sequence called Fairy Dream Adventure, Part 7.
There is also a 2019 animated television series called Rainbow Butterfly Unicorn Kitty. It is about a magical cat that is part rainbow, part butterfly, and part unicorn. Sounds pretty confusing to me! I wonder if this counts as a rainbow unicorn. I guess it does, because the character is part unicorn (and part rainbow).
In the My Little Pony series, there are some rainbow unicorn pony characters. In the animated series My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, there is Rainbow Dash, a blue Pegasus with a rainbow colored mane and tail.
Rainbow Unicorn Symbolism
Being super popular in the modern world, it’s not surprising that the rainbow unicorn has a symbolic meaning in the human world.
First of all, the rainbow unicorn is the ultimate symbol of the LGBT community and gay pride. Both rainbows and unicorns are associated with the LGBT community and gay rights, and the rainbow unicorn mixes them both; a unicorn and the rainbow colors.
Existence of the YouTubers who call themselves “rainbow unicorns” also suggests the rainbow unicorn symbolizes a unique and colorful person. Some people call themselves “unicorns”, which also symbolizes a unique individual. A person calling themselves a “rainbow unicorn” seems to be an even more unique individual, who is not afraid to be who they are, and who loves all the colors of the rainbow.
