Top 10 Cryptids and Unknown Creatures

Cryptids are unknown creatures reportedly seen by people whose existence has not been verified by science. Some are large, while others may be small. Some are scary, while others are not. But which one is the scariest, or the coolest, or the best in your opinion.
The Top Ten
1 Bigfoot In North American folklore, Bigfoot or Sasquatch are said to be hairy, upright-walking, ape-like creatures that dwell in the wilderness and leave footprints.

Bigfoot is most likely real. It its believed by people that Bigfoot is Cane from the bible, Because Cane killed his older Brother Able while he was working out in the fields and god put a curse/ punishment on him to make him look like that. It is very likely he still wonders this earth today

The most iconic cryptid for sure. There actually may be the possibility that this thing exsists. It could very well be a descendent of Gigantopithechus. There's no way all of the thousands of bigfoot sightings were simply hoaxes or bear sightings. Plus, as the Patterson Gunlin Film is becoming more legit the more it is analyzed. Bigfoot is definitely a great cryptid and I'm looking forward to the day this elusive creature is finally discovered.

There is a good possibility that Bigfoot could be out there, with all the sightings and trace evidence. I do believe there could be a Bigfoot out there. I believe in a lot of things, really. I'm curious and I keep an open mind.

I believe in Bigfoot because I saw him when I was camping with my family. My brother's comment is exactly the same as mine, he kind of looked like a gorilla but this was in Australia and there are no gorillas so he or she is real. Love you

2 Chupacabra

How is Bigfoot higher than this? The whole idea of Bigfoot is pretty mild, in my opinion. The Chupacabra has got to be the creepiest yet coolest thing I've seen!

Many people think it's a Coyote with mange. But what explains the dead livestock drained of blood?

Goat-Suckers, most sightings in Texas, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, Mexico, Oklahoma, but legends originated in Puerto Rico.

They are real one of my moms friends (she is a scientist) has seen one. I also know how they were made

3 Mothman In West Virginia folklore, the Mothman is a legendary creature reportedly seen in the Point Pleasant area from November 12, 1966, to December 15, 1967 . The first newspaper report was published in the Point Pleasant Register dated November 16, 1966, titled "Couples See Man-Sized Bird ... Creature ... Something" . The national press soon picked up the reports and helped spread the story across the country .

Some think it's a dark angel, some think it's a demon, some thing it's an alien, but all agree that it is quite possibly the most terrifying of all American monsters.

Mothman basically a real hero. He warns people of dangers before they happen now that is impressive. I was honestly shocked that he wasn't in Chernobyl HBO!

An immortal creature that is singular and capable and saving and killing. What we need to find out is if Mothman is our friend or foe.

The Mothman warns people of danger, so it's basically predicting the future. It would be helpful a lot of times.

4 Loch Ness Monster The Loch Ness Monster (also known as Nessie) is an aquatic creature which reputedly inhabits Loch Ness (a lake in Scotland). Nessie is one of the most famous cryptids in history. The earliest report of the monster was in A.D. 565 where Irish monk Saint Columbia was the first person to record having seen a monster in the loch. But modern interest in Nessie only really took off in the 1900s. more.

One person probably came up with this to spook others out but then every time someone saw a shadow or log in the water it was the "Loch Ness Monster" and that's probably how the legend was born.

How is this real we have no proof people think this is a plesiosaur but people
from scotland are saying that this dinosaur is dead before Loch ness
If this is not a Plesiosaur what is it.

I'd love to visit Loch Ness to look for the monster! So cool! I would be depressed if Nessie turned out to be a hoax.

Some believe it could be a modern day Plesiosaur. Could be...

5 Yeti

Frozen Bigfoot.
Likely an "extinct" giant ape species that lived in Tibet a few million years ago.

As a TF2 fan the Yeti has grown to be my favorite cryptid. Watch the Jungle Inferno Short to see it in action. It is glorious.

A yeti should've been in the movie , Frozen.

He is the Himalayan Bigfoot. Some claim to have attacked while crossing the Himalayas.

6 Jersey Devil

One of my favorite cryptids. It's said he was the 13th child of Mother Leeds. Tired of having kids, she said on the night she gave birth, "Let the Devil take this one", and she got her wish. It was born normal but just moments after being born it underwent a hideous transformation. It's head turned into a horse-like head, it's eyes glow red, it grew a pair of bat wings and a forked tail. Then with a blood-curdling scream, it ate the other twelve children then flew out the chimney into the Pine Barrens. Spooky yet interesting!

It looks like a gaunt horse with bat wings and a forked tail. Spooky and cool! One of my favorites!

I'm from nj. I've lived in the ol' pinewoods. I heard it once or twice before. Even stole some of my sheep. I moved the first chance I had. Never want to go there again.

Imagine a deer with rabies, the Mothman, and a bat. That's basically what it is.

7 Aliens

No one in my family believes in aliens except me, and my sister thinks I'm crazy, but I don't care. I know there's life on other planets, I just know it!

I think Aliens are outside of Earth also theres no UFO Encounters happen anymore between 1440 BC to 2021 theres Used to be UFO Encounters but not anymore.

To all who think it is childish to believe in aliens: IT'S NOT. Earth can't be the only planet in the entire universe with life on it.

They are our there somewhere. But not in Area 51, Area 51 was were secret spy planes were made to spy on the Soviet Union.

8 Lizard Man of Scape Ore Swamp

It's very aggressive and has attacked many people. A horrible creature, indeed.

I think all of these are real, (Or have a creature like it) But maybe not all on earth

9 Banshee

They make a horrible wailing sound when someone is about to die.

10 Werewolf A werewolf or lycanthrope is a mythological or folkloric human with the ability to shapeshift into a wolf or a therianthropic hybrid wolf-like creature, either purposely or after being placed under a curse or affliction.

I love Werewolves. Many believe that the Beast of Bray Road and Michigan Dogman could be a type of werewolf.

I always think of phineas or Lincoln loud turning into werewolves.

A mystery yet.

The Contenders
11 Mermaid A mermaid is a legendary aquatic creature with the head and upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish.

The fact that these things haven't been debunked yet (I mean, the Fiji Mermaid was debunked, but they're technically two different things,) makes me wonder what cryptozoologists are doing these days.

They are real I tell you.

Mermaids are real

12 Mokele-mbembe

A 30 feet long sauropod that is said to be a living dinosaur that lives in the swamps of Africa. One solid evidence that it exists is huge footprints with three claws.

One of my most favourite cryptids of all time. It has the shape of a sauropod dinosaur, lives in the swamps of Africa and it's about 30 ft long which is kind of small for a sauropod but large for an African cryptid.

Why the hell do I imagine this creature having Simba's voice?

Ancient sauropod, like Brontosaurus is a likely explanation

13 Ogopogo

An Ogopogo is not a dinosaur, it has been seen 3 times and may end up resulting in another kraken story... a real animal, by the way mosasaurs aren't tea dinosaurs either

People, Mosasaurs are not dinosaurs, and they are extinct, people can swim in this lake all they want.

Yes this is the best cryptid but whatever you do don't swim in the lake that sea monster live
cause that is the last time to see you alive.

14 Kitsune

Kit is awesome
But in the Korean legend the kit is called the kumiho and it shapes into humans to trick them and eat their flesh.
Would not want to meet it!

Love Japanese creatures! This should be higher.

15 Grinning Man

One man claimed that the Grinning Man came up to his car one night and spoke to him telepathically. He told him that his name was Indrid Cold and that he meant no harm. He also had questions about UFO sightings. Could he be some kind of humanoid alien? I don't know, but he sounds creepy. I wouldn't want to meet him.

A man named Woodrow Derenberger claimed that the Grinning Man came up to his vehicle one night and telepathically told him his name was Indrid Cold and that he meant no harm. And he seemed to have many questions about UFO sightings. An alien maybe?

Also known as Indrid Cold, he has been spotted all over the states, especially West Virginia. one man claimed he spoke to him telepathically and asked about UFO sightings. Could he be some kind of alien? Whatever he is, I would never want to meet him.

Don't trust him. He comes to me sometimes. He DOES mean harm and his name isn't Ingrid Cold.

16 Unicorn The unicorn is a legendary creature that has been described since antiquity as a pure-white horse-like beast with a large, pointed, spiraling horn projecting from its forehead

How nice and a pet unicorn would be quite cool.

A horse with a horn. How cool is that!

It has a horn duh

17 Kraken The Kraken is a legendary sea monster of giant size that is said to dwell off the coasts of Norway and Greenland.

This is real. It actually is just a giant squid wandering about in the ocean, not causing destruction by the first ship that swims past it. Just swims along with the blue.

Some believe that the Colossal Squid might be some kind of Kraken.

18 Mongolian Death Worm

I've always had some wonders about this creature, seems large, but it hides under sand.

19 Dover Demon

One of the scariest in my opinion. What is it? A demon? An alien? No one knows, but some people have came up missing...

What could it be? A demon? An alien? Whatever it is, it is spooky and interesting.

I don't think these guys are creepy. I think they are adorable.

I think that most crypids are creepy and do belive of most of them. I think the creepiest one is the cemetary.

20 Wendigo

One of my favorites. It's a malevolent cannibalistic spirit with the power to possess humans. All it does is eat and eat and it's never full. They can move through space so if a Wendigo decides to make you its next victim, there is no escape. However, there are ways to protect oneself from a Wendigo and kill it. But you must follow the procedure exactly or the Wendigo will be resurrected followed by it's bloody vengeance. And the death that follows will be slow and painful. It's a horrible creature, indeed!

Growing up in the because area meant a lot of Wendigo legends in my childhood. This creature is just the front-cover cryptid for fans of the spooky side of cryptozoology. He's tall, human like, cannibalistic with lanky limbs and huge claws. Exactly what I envision when I think of scary, just beyond natural creatures.

An evil spirit with an insatiable appetite, it possesses humans, mainly ones that indulge in cannibalism, and it loves flesh and blood. It's also very deformed.

21 Cactus Cat
22 Beast of Bray Road

This one is very similar to Michigan's Dogman. Both are described as being a Werewolf, even though there are no eyewitness accounts of the beast shape-shifting from human to wolf.

He's also called the Michigan Dogman and Wisconsin Werewolf. I love this cryptid. One of the best and most interesting in my opinion. Maybe, just maybe, Werewolves do exsist. Awesome if they did!

23 Owlman

Also known as the Death Raptor, he is one of England's cryptids. He is often compared to America's Mothman.
