Unicorns are one of the three main types of Ponies.
Unicorns have one horn on the top of their forehead which enables them to perform spells, such as Levitation (to move objects with their minds) or Illumination (to make their horns glow).
For reasons unknown, Unicorns became very superstitious after ponykind was divided between the three tribes. As a result, Unicorns fear bad luck, which they refer to as the "Jinxies" and compulsively perform an odd dance while uttering "Bing Bong" to ward the Jinxies off, and they do the same if they hear somepony utter words forbidden by their culture (these being Magic, Wing, Feather and Mayonnaise).
After Magic was restored, the Unicorns likely lost some of their superstitions.
In Generation 1, unicorns make up about 25% of all ponies, about even with the distribution of Pegasus ponies. Many unicorns are capable of specific sorts of magic, for example, Fizzy is capable of producing bubbles from her horn. Some ponies are known for "Winking Out", which is essentially short-range teleportation.
In Generation 2, unicorns are the only other kind of pony aside from Earth ponies. Only a few unicorns exist.
In Generation 3 and Generation 3.5, unicorns are the least populated kind of pony, only 1.5% of all ponies are unicorns. They are capable of producing rainbows from their horns but otherwise show little magic capacity. One of the main cast from Generation 3.5 is a unicorn.
In Generation 4 and Generation 4.5, unicorns are about as equally distributed as the other types of ponies. These ponies were originally in charge of the day and night cycles and tend to be associated with high society. Both Generations have two-sixths of their mane casts as unicorns.
