Swift Wind, a winged unicorn (later termed an alicorn), is the main animal companion to Princess Adora when she is She-Ra in her eponymous TV series She-Ra: Princess of Power (1985, Filmation) and its Netflix remake She-Ra and the Princesses of Power (2018, DreamWorks). In the 1985 version, Swift Wind is normally an ordinary horse named Spirit (ordinary except for his ability to talk); Spirit becomes Swift Wind whenever She-Ra fires a blast of energy from the stone encased in her Sword of Protection (but only if Adora is already transformed into She-Ra), and transforms back into Spirit when She-Ra turns back into Adora. In the 2018 remake, Swift Wind begins life as an ordinary horse (no speech ability this time) nicknamed "Horsey"; Adora accidentally turns him into alicorn Swift Wind (on which case he gains the ability to talk), this transformation being a permanent one (unlike in the original series, where the transformation was reversible).
