The Niffler seeks out things that glitter and shine, preferring jewelry and coins and destroying anything that gets in its way. It can store the goods it finds in a pouch on its belly, one that holds far more than seems physically possible, because of magic of course. This was featured in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.


Bowtruckle is a stick-like creature that eats insects and is very skilled at picking locks. They are extremely loyal and sweet. Fun fact: Creature designers went through 200 designs before they settled on this one.


The Thunderbird serves as the symbol of one of the four houses from the American wizarding school Ilvermorny, but it’s also very much a real magical creature. The large bird has shimmering wings decorated with cloud and sun-like patterns and they have the ability to create storms just by flapping their wings. This one is named Frank and Newt hopes to return him to his natural habitat in Arizona. There’s a good chance this bird will become helpful at some point in the story because Thunderbirds can also sense danger. Could Frank be the key to helping unveil our villain of the film?


It looks like a cross between a dragon and a bird, but this creature is unique from both of those creatures because its shells are made of pure silver, thus making them worth a lot of money. What’s interesting about the Occamy is it’s choranaptyxic, which means it will grow or shrink to fit the available space. As the magazine hints, that could make things rather problematic if it escapes into the open with unlimited space to grow.


The Demiguise looks like some kind of primate, but you’ve never seen a primate like this, and there’s a chance you may not see him at all. That’s because a Demiguise has the ability to become invisible at will (its hair can be spun into invisibility cloaks). Also making him difficult to catch is the fact that it has precognitive sight. That sounds like a creature that would also be helpful in dealing with a villain.

Swooping Evil

It resembles a dragon-like butterfly, which is intentional since it lives inside a spiny, green cocoon when it’s not flying around. This is one creature you probably wouldn’t want to encounter in the wizarding world because it has the ability to suck out brains. On a less nightmarish note, the creature also has venom that can be used to erase bad memories. Perhaps the bad memory of seeing your friend get his brains sucked out.

The Erumpent is a huge African magical beast resembling a rhinoceros. It is a powerful creature, with a thick hide capable of repelling most curses and charms, a single long horn, and a thick tail. They are treated with great caution and respect by African wizards and witches

The Graphorn is a dangerous and aggressive magical creature, native to the mountains of Europe. Newton Scamander had the the last pair of breeding graphorns, along with a young graphorn, during his visit to New York in 1926. Its Horn is a highly prized potion ingredient, used in potions like the Antidote to Uncommon Poisons.

The Nundu is a giant mammal similar to a leopard that is native to East Africa. It moves silently, despite its "gigantic" size, and is considered by some to be the most dangerous creature alive. The breath of the Nundu is toxic and filled with disease.
