Concept: Unicorn Hunter
I felt the unicorn hunter should have some mystical qualities to it since it's hunting a mystical creature. It's coloration hints at the ability to "camouflage" itself (become somewhat transparent) before striking. Its face and head have protective layers to counteract the Unicorn's supposed 'telepathic' abilities and offers protection from attacks. It's horns are utilized in place of its reduced senses underneath the head protection.

Hackerjacks are small, hyperactive predators that hunt in packs of up to 500 members. They prey exclusively on unicorns, but there's one problem; a unicorn is nearly impossible to catch in its native forest. Unicorns personify the ancient magic of the woods, and at a moment's notice, they can disappear into the trees without a trace. The hackerjack's solution to this is to leave the unicorn without a forest to hide in. When a pack of hackerjacks catches the scent of their quarry, they fan out and form a wide circle around it. Then, they get to work.
These destructive creatures can deforest an area at an alarming rate. They hammer their axe-like heads into a tree, woodpecker-like, until it falls. Within an hour, they create a barren perimeter of stumps around the unicorn. Unicorns are strongly tied to their forests, and they are unwilling or unable to venture out into this wasteland. Once the unfortunate creature is trapped in this way, the hackerjacks are free to swarm it their leisure.
Hackerjacks have a curious way of replenishing the forests they so wantonly destroy. Since they only eat unicorns, hackerjack droppings act as a kind of "magic fertilizer". This strange stuff allows the forest to grow back within mere months.

Ancient mythical creatures which are foes to the unicorns. Hunts in packs (like wolves), its hooked tail is to hold down the unicorn whilst its struggling and to injure the unicorn during the chase.

Concept: SHADOW BLADE
As we know, unicorn as the purest being that live in the Fairy,usually in the forest,representing the bright side of the world.But there's no brightness without darkness,like there're always Yin and yang being all together.So along with the creating of unicorn by the divine force,in the shadow of the brightness,we got Shadow Blade.
In the fairy forest, shadow blade alway hide on top of enormous trees.They have no eyes,but they move swiftly and silently in shadow.Shadow blade hunt down unicorn not for food,they just kill them with the blade on the forehead,it's just an instinct. When a shadow blade has killed an unicorn,the hunch on its back will darken,and then explodes,the shadow blade also dies.Thereby the balance between bright side and the dark side.

A remote relative of the gryphon, the keythong is a wingless, forest-dwelling creature of the size of a wolf, and not unlike wolves, they hunt large prey in pack of three to ten individuals. Like their grander relatives, they have an immense appetite for equine flesh, and thus, are the only natural enemy of the unicorn, which they do not only hunt for it`s tender flesh - the sight of the unicorns blinding white fur, which shimmers pinkish-silver even in the darkest nights, hurts their light-sensitive eyes and makes them aggressive.

At the dusk they come, quietly to the river that has been known to give life, and also take it away. Drawn to the glowing depths, the unicorns find peace and comfort in the calming mist that flows from the river.
But not every creature is attracted to this mysterious place for the same reasons. Some travel to kill. And this is one of them. Actually, one of hundreds.
Standing fifty feet high, this the most powerful of the centaur species, comes to hunt for the truest source of power and eternal life in the great forest, the Unicorn. And only this creature knows how to kill one of these majestic beasts. In an ironic twist of fate, the horn of the Unicorn is the only substance able to penetrate their magically protected hide, and must be attached to the body of its original owner in order to work. The Griblam uses its brute strength to overwhelm and destroy. But this is not its only asset. The eyes on this foul beings legs are for more than merely looking around, they can see the into the soul of the unicorns, allowing them to find the oldest, and most powerful of their most dreaded enemy. For you see, the hide of the griblam is hard as well. Harder than a Unicorns. And there is only one thing that can penetrate it. Can you guess what it is?

my first time posting on this site... a friend put me onto this thread, and thought i would give it a go. sadly didn't have time to put the creature into an environment.
Concept: dai cat
the idea behind the "dai" cat was that they were loners by nature...intelligent hunters, they'd just take the horse down with speed and strength... long saber teeth for cutting right through all the blood vessels of the unicorns throat, plates which are good against the ol horn... a bone plated head as well.
hope you likes

The Lytaal are a very territorial race. Even within their different troops they are known to fight and steal from one anothers dens. While any real use for the Unicorns horns, is yet to be determined they seem to have a huge significance to the Lytaal. The packs very rarely even feast upon the Unicorn, They usually waste no time in breaking off the horn and returning it to their troops den.

Concept: Birtch tiger
This creature hides in the shadows stalking unicorns. one of theses creatures can take out 2 to 3 unicorns in a sitting. Standing 8 to 14 feet tall and traveling at speeds up to 65 mph this cousin to the cat can outrun any pretty little horned horse.

a single creature born with the purpose of finding its counterpart and destroying it. this is the shadow to the unicorns light, the unicorn must stay one step ahead of the monohorn if its powers are to stay in this realm. once united the two will decide the fate of our world.

Concept: Unicorn hunter: Whiteback
-White Shell used as camouflage to blend in rock boulders and stone formations
-The shell covers more area in their body as they age and as they feed on unicorns. the more they feed, better the camo.
-They are born without a shell so they must rely on speed and strenght in their youth.
-They can pull back their necks just like turtles to help them blend in better.
