The Legio Ulricon, also called the Legio Ulicon, was a Traitor Titan Legion of the Dark Mechanicum that repudiated its oaths to the Emperor of Mankind and followed the Warmaster Horus into the service of the Ruinous Powers during the Horus Heresy.

The Legio Ulricon was known to have fought alongside the Night Lords Legion in the Thramas Crusade of the Horus Heresy, keeping the Dark Angels Legion at bay for over three standard years, so as to delay their deployment in support of the Loyalist cause on Terra.

They were utterly devastated in a carefully coordinated ambush by the Dark Angels, who proceeded to destroy the Legio Ulricon's flagship, spilling its cargo of wrecked Titans into the void.

It is unknown if any remaining elements of the Legion took part in the final campaign of the Warmaster's rebellion during the Siege of Terra or whether they were destroyed outright by the Dark Angels' assault.
