Unikitty has several different variations to date. All but 1 variation is brick-built and consist of fourteen pieces. Because of this, the only articulation is at the neck (the head turns).
Unikitty's head is pink, with large printed blue eyes, rosy cheeks, and some white on her face. She has a small, magenta nose. Her ears are magenta and she has a light royal blue unicorn horn sticking out of her head. Her body is pink with white legs. She has yellow back paws and aqua front paws. She has a new moulded tail piece. It is white with light royal blue printing on the sides. This outfit is inspired by her original form throughout the movie.
Biznis (intentionally misspelt) Kitty was Unikitty's disguise used for infiltrating the Octan tower. She looks the same as normal Unikitty, but she has glasses, a necktie, and mathematical symbols drawn on her with black marker.
Astro Kitty is Unikitty wearing a spacesuit. Mostly blue, except for gold feet and a gold horn held on by a white stud. She has the same smiling face behind a printed helmet. She also has the classic Space logo printed on her spacesuit. This outfit is inspired by Benny.
When Unikitty gets enraged, she loses control of her positive nature and becomes Angry Kitty. This variant is mostly bright red and dark red. She has an angry, menacing face, also red, with some yellow toward the chin. She also has a yellow flame pattern on her legs. Her tail is red with yellow printing.
When Emmet and his friends hide in the Double Decker Couch after The Submarine breaks apart, Unikitty gets seasick. Her queasy variant is several shades of green, mostly sand green, with some olive green and light green, as well as some white on the legs and the stud that holds her horn on. She has a sickly expression, her eyes are now brown and more squinted and have wrinkles below them, her mouth is now in a squiggly frown, and she has a white tail with green printing.
Not much is known of this variant. This variant is part of The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part. Ultrakatty is the main build in the set, 70827 Ultrakatty & Warrior Lucy! Unikitty shapeshifts into Ultrakatty, according to the video Emmet's Holiday Party, and one of the Brick Friday trailers.
In The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part is where she adopts an enlarged build version of herself, with an outfit style similar to what most denizens of Apocalypsburg wear.
The LEGO Movie
Princess Unikitty lives in Cloud Cuckoo Land, where she and the Master Builders reside in safe and secret harmony, even though they know it is a matter of time before that ends. Some things Lord Business and Robo SWAT do make Unikitty short-tempered, but she will do anything to help Emmet and the Master Builders stop Lord Business from gluing the world with the Kragle.
Unikitty is the happy-going spirit of Emmet's oddball group, and thus susceptible to strong emotions. She feels so strongly for her friends that anything that happens to them she is effected as well. Because of this, she sometimes has a hard time controlling her emotions to "stay positive". But, when it comes to protecting those she cares about from those doing harm to them, she does not hold back. At all.
She first greeted Emmet and the gang in Cloud Cuckoo Land and took them to the "dog", which was a temple where the Master Builders were gathering. However, after they were attacked by Bad Cop and the Robo SWAT force, they were forced to escape underwater, much to her devastation in seeing her home destroyed. She then joined the plan to infiltrate the Octan Tower, disguising herself as Biznis Kitty, until being captured at the last second. Soon the gang escaped, and in the battle of Bricksburg, Emmet was attacked by Micro Managers which made Unikitty angry enough to lose control of her normally happy demeanor. Unleashing her fury on the robots, she provided the distraction needed to help Emmet get to the Kragle-izer.
Upon the Kragle-izer's destruction, Unikitty is seen celebrating with the group, along with the rest of Bricksburg.
Unikitty returns to star in her own animated television series, alongside a cast of new characters (Puppycorn, Hawkodile, Dr. Fox and Richard). However, despite Unikitty herself being faithful to her portrayal in The LEGO Movie, she is the ruler of the Unikingdom and not Cloud Cuckoo Land. And Looks Up Voice Compare Bubbles
Her arch-nemesis in the series is Master Frown, accompanied by his "henchman" Brock.
Unikitty is the only character created exclusively for The LEGO Movie franchise to appear in the series. The LEGO Movies might be canon because at the end of the second film, The Unikingdom Castle was shown in Syspocalypsestar, a combination of Apocalypseburg, The Systar System, and possibly Unikingdom.
She returns in the Sequel of The LEGO Movie, in which she has a much larger, more intricate brick-built form and known as Ultrakatty.
- During the scene when the characters board Benny's Spaceship, she can be seen riding in a fitted hole on the roof, with her head poking out. This is probably a reference to R2-D2, who rode that way in many spaceships in Star Wars.
- Angry Kitty's large head form bears a strong resemblance to Large Marge's claymation face transformation in the movie, Pee-wee's Big Adventure; featuring bulging eyes and a waving tongue.
- This large form of Angry Kitty's head has also yet to appear in physical form in any official LEGO set. It can however be built of existing pieces.
- Unikitty's anger seems to be triggered whenever someone or something harms another thing in a way. This is seen as all of the causes for her anger in The LEGO Movie is caused by others being harmed. For example, Emmet nearly being taken apart by the Micro Managers, which sent unikitty into rage.
- Unikitty's species inspiration may have come from the Caticorn, a similar species of a cat and unicorn hybrid.
- Her appearance and personality could also have been inspired as a combination of My Little Pony and Hello Kitty or the Nyan Cat.
- Her voice actor from the TV show, Tara Strong also voiced Harley Quinn, Batgirl, Raven, Jayna and Poison Ivy in several DC properties.
- The original version of Unikitty (that appeared in The Lego Movie sets) was rather easy to decapitate on accident when turning her head, as the simple round 1X1 piece used for her neck was not designed to be a swivel joint. Thus LEGO actually created a new part for her neck for the theme based on her TV series, and this has carried over to all subsequent appearances, as well as being used in other LEGO sets.
- Unikitty appears in the upcoming Adult Swim TV series Come and Learn with Pibby!. She also appears in the poster as well next to Princess Bubblegum.
