    Figures. The writers can’t be bothered to do even the most basic fact-checking. And all the standard texts are a good 90 years out of date.

    Judging from her wicked skating routine, Marigold must have been a Quorum member, or still is. Her humor at least can be quite pointed.

    Hmm, the standard animal method for determining horn sharpness is a jousting contest. Does this mean Unicorns used to be violent barbarians?! (It would be interesting to see two Unicorns duelling…)

    Never! They had human slaves measure their horns and derive the cosine!

    The unicorn tribe still exists? I thought Marigold was the one and only. Destiny23 is correct, most animals use some form of ritual combat to establish dominance. The unicorns have further ritualized the physical combat into a dance contest. The use of rollerskates must be Marigold’s unique innovation, though it might violate the rules somewhere.

    @Frank Hightower

    Slavery is a human institution I am sure unicorns would have nothing to do with.

    Horses do freestyle dance as well, just google freestyle dressage or freestyle reining to behold the wonder.

    Maybe they had a unicorn reversed variant of the Rockwell Hardness test. (stick a hardened point of known hardness into a metal and measure how easily it cuts into it.)

    @Dana. You do realize that you can’t mention something as wickedly cool as a unicorn dance contest (election) and not portray it?

    I love plot lines that expand on the mythology of the series and canonize facts about unicorns and stuff. Marigold should pitch a fact based kids animated series about unicorns, or maybe write a book so little girls can play correctly.

    Indeed. I want to meet some of the other unicorns. Maybe in time. Or not. Ms Simpson is the storyteller, not us.

    The Crystal Empire… oops, I mean Glitter City… could use more dancing and less princessing for sure! But then, who doesn’t?

    Winning a position via dance contest… Naponyan Dynamite?
