Though it appears very elegant when swimming with fins unfurled, it can jab powerfully with its horn.

Generation 6

It swims at a steady 5 knots. If it senses danger, it will strike back with its sharp horn.

Its dorsal, pectoral, and tail fins wave elegantly in water. That is why it is known as the water dancer.
