The Learicorn is a cavalry cheat unit in Age of Empires III. It looks like what appears to be a man in a tuxedo riding a unicorn. The unit attacks enemies by hitting them with what appears to be a player-colored cane.

The Learicorn one of the least durable cheat units; even though it can quickly kill units, it only has 600 hit points. Other units, such as The Tommynator, can have up to 60,000 hit points.

This unit is hidden in the basic tutorial. The player can view the Learicorn in the tutorial by building a Dock, constructing a Caravel, and then transporting a land unit to the northeastern side of the map to make contact with it. The player can also click "Resign" in the menu options and will be able to view it. The player can order Settlers to chop trees. It is hostile and extremely strong, and will kill any unit in one hit.

It is possible to create the Learicorn in a scenario, by clicking the "replace unit" button under "objects" bar and selecting Learicorn, when an already-placed unit is selected.


The Learicorn is a unique cavalry unit with good speed and, quite surprisingly, a massive attack. I heartily suggest running your army in the opposite direction if you ever see the Learicorn. Even if it's your own, just run.

The Learicorn seems harmless enough but is, in fact, a harbinger of certain rainbow-shrouded doom. Resembling nothing so much as a friendly magician riding his trusty unicorn steed, the Learicorn's battle cry of "Sure, sure, keep kicking the pitbull," sends chills up the spine of all who hear it.

The only known predator of the Learicorn is the chopstick and pottery-fragment wielding leviathan, Ianicus Fischerii. And George Crushington.
