Each of the Ultimate Unicorn mutant breeds is created in a similar way. To get one, you need to breed your horses such that the baby has all of the following traits:
- A unicorn horn
- Wings - large pegasus wings or small nightmare wings both work.
- Flaming hooves from a nightmare
- Large size from a destrier
Then, depending on the hide gene of the baby, a mutation may occur, causing the baby to get a new hide gene. The four mutant hide genes are as follows:
The Red-Winged Blackbird is a mutation of the destrier hide gene. Since the destrier hide gene is dominant over all the other normal horse hide genes, this is the easiest mutation to get. To get a different kind of Ultimate Unicorn hide gene, you need to make sure to get rid of those destrier hide genes from your breeding gene pool!
The Blue Belle hide gene is the next easiest to get, since the pegasus hide gene is dominant over the nightmare and unicorn hide genes. If you want to get a Redrum or Rainbow Smash, make sure to remove all pegasus hide genes from your breeding pool!
The Redrum hide gene is the next easiest to get, since the nightmare hide gene is dominant over the unicorn hide gene. Again, if you want to breed a Rainbow Smash, then get rid of those nightmare hide genes.
Rainbow Smash is the most difficult breed to get in the Ultimate Unicorn mod. The unicorn hide gene is recessive to all the other hide genes (except the zebra). If you can create one, you are a true master breeder.
You can breed a zebra by trying to get a magical horse with no special traits - no horn, no wings, no aura, no big size, nothing! If you take the time to breed a zebra, you might even discover another easter egg (at least if you enjoy a certain Disney show featuring a secret agent platypus)....
