The Harry Potter universe is full of fantastic beasts that we’ve seen in the books and movies over the years. Here are the 25 most fantastic ones.

J.K. Rowling continues to expand the Harry Potter universe, which has given us even more fantastic beasts. We saw some in the original movies based on the Harry Potter books, but it’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them that brought them to the forefront. Now, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is in theaters and there are even more to be on the lookout for.

While Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them put more focus on the actual beasts, we can’t forget how much Hagrid loved them, too. He was always taking care of something at his place and on occasion it would get him in trouble. Some people in the Harry Potter universe are just drawn to fantastic beasts and it gives us a chance to experience them as well.

When it comes to the world of magic, the type of creatures you can have is endless. You can have an ordinary creature like an owl do extraordinary things. We’ve seen a lot of various creatures, but only 25 will make this list.

I’ll be including the Ministry of Magic classification for each one as well as where you can find them, similar to how the actual book does. There’s some tough competition out there. Are you ready to take a look at our top 25? Let’s get to it!
