Top Ten Mythical Beasts

The Top Ten
1 Dragon A dragon is a legendary creature, typically with serpentine or reptilian traits, that features in the myths of many cultures.

It makes sense that the dragon is number one on this list. It's one of the most
well-known and popular mythological creature in the world. People use these creatures in book series, which makes them more enjoyable to read, probably because they're different in every story. The powers, appearance, size, and speech, differ with each story, or movie. I love dragons, they're the best mythological creature to exist!

I love who dragons can have so much variation. They can be enormous, or tiny, blue, or green. They are such beautiful animals and I love it when they are in stories or series. In my opinion, the best dragon series is Wings of Fire by Tui T. Sutherland.

I LOVE DRAGONS!
they are rlly cool and in everyones mind, they see something different, something they want to see in a dragon. They piece it up, create OCs, and its pretty wonderful. Dragons are epic and fierce and brave and intelligent. A dragon might seem scary, but in a way they're also majestic and regal.

Dragons are single handedly the most awesome best, and coolest in the world. I love drawing them, and writing about them, the myths are the most epic!
They breath fire and are perceived in different ways! They are featured in many mythology and cultures! They are the best, if they exist that would be awesome (unless they want to kill us) dragons are also fierce! Sometimes they can transform into humans and in some myths people could reach a certain level and become one!

2 Phoenix

Their tears have healing powers." Phoenixes are amongst the strongest and most durable of supernatural creatures. They are quite powerful and almost impossible to kill. Spontaneous Combustion/Incineration Touch - In human form, a Phoenix can incinerate anyone/anything with a single touch. Phoenixes are only 'immortal' in the sense that they can never die of old age, rising from the ashes each time. In every other way, they are as easily killed as a large, particularly bright eagle. ... When it dies, it immolates itself, and then a new Phoenix rises from the ashes.

Phoenix is a super cool mythical creature they are beautiful and amazing myths I love them so much my wallpaper for all my devices have them. I love birds hearing about a bird made out of fire and can be reborn has made me so excited. I actually think they are real.

To be honest I do not really like fire, I am more into ice but this mythical creature is the most interesting and the most beautiful and the strongest of all by so far. I would like to meet one of them one day...

I would so like to have a phoenix as my pet! They are immortally smart and beautiful. If I could choose one mythical animal to be real, I'd choose a phoenix. They should totally be number 1! Vote for phoenix!

3 Griffin

Griffins are the best by far! But I'm not surprised that Dragon is higher than Griffin. I mean, who doesn't like a giant, flying, fire breathing lizard? Apparently no one tends to think about the fact that Dragons EAT humans. I mean, I know for one thing I don't think about that, an I still love them! But Griffins, are just awesome in general! I think their the best, and you should to!

The king of beasts and the sky. They are very handsome beasts and are equally proud. A griffin is definitely the best of all mythical beasts!

My favourite mythical creature, because
1. because it's the King of the beasts + King of the Birds
2. it looks cool
3. it's just my favourite mythical creature

by the way it is spelt "griffin"

A top predator of the sky's mixed with a top predator of the Land gives a griffin which I think is one of the coolest of them all.

4 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.

Werewolves dislike the smell of a plant called wolfsbane and will stay away if it's nearby. They also hate to be around objects made from silver or iron. As with their rivals, the Vampires, Werewolves are immortal. The original Werewolf survived over 800 years of captivity with no food or water in what appeared to be a type of hibernation. They possess enhanced senses of smell, hearing, and sight that are superior even to those of wolves, not just humans.

Professor Remus Lupin, had a sad, sad story; He was only a boy walking through the forbidden forest, then out of no where a werewolf jumped out bit his arm, and now every full moon (If he sees the moon) he turns into a creepy hideous werewolf. The end. This was a real story no joke.

Did you know that, according to Eastern European legend, the werewolves come out to party (I.e., kill sheep) from December 25 to January 6?

Lupin is Epic. Also, Werewolves are cool.

5 Unicorn

Unicorns are notoriously hard to catch - which is probably why we see so few of them. Unicorns are afraid of Labradors and have been known to attack them, although they become docile around pheasants. The magical powers of unicorns are also legendary. Unicorn horns are said to be harder than diamonds and unicorn tears are believed to have the power to heal both physical wounds and sorrows of the heart.

Some myths say that if you capture it, it will grant you a wish. Others say that its horn can be a wand if broken off. Even some say that seeing one will give you good luck. But the one I want to talk about, is in Roman Mythology. In roman myths, the powder from a horn of a unicorn can heal poisons, acids, and lethal wounds.

By far the best out, dragons are scared of these pimps, so they definitely get my vote and I hope the rest of you think the same as me and share my opinion.

I really love Unicorns , because they are so beautiful , and they are number one in my opinion . If I could turn into anything it would be a Unicorn .

6 Hydra

In Bakugan, there's a Bakugan called Hydranoid, which at first has a single head, over time; however, it evolves into Dual Hydranoid which has 2 heads. Its final evolved form, Alpha Hydranoid, has three heads. The Hydra itself is really cool in Greek and Roman mythology. Next to the dragon, the Hydra is my favorite mythical beast of all time.

Hydra is BOSS! (Why is Nemean Lion #5... ) It's possibly the most recognizable Greek mythology monster, and one of the most powerful. (B.T.W. , you guys need to work on your grammar. Half of the comments on this list, I don't even understand...

Splendid fight with Hydra by in mythical serial Hercules: legendary journey. In old season Hercules and friend Jolaus fight offer biggist yellow Hydra. Beasts Hydra is crawl and growth head. Hercules must started in trick, s and idea, S. Hydra is beautifull biggist monster.

My name is Jindra, I have vote to mythology biggest monster name Hydra. Hydra is have match head gigant body and werry great power. Hydra is good speed. Cross eyed Jindra his down glasses and weapon pole to opponent Hydra. Jindra and Hydra is be friends.

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

The Giant Squid cannot destroy ships of the size Kraken can, in fact, they don't even come to the surface enough to do that. Krakens have to be almost 5 times the size of Giant Squid.

The Kraken should be #1. It's so kickass, tears ships into two, and it's been proven to be REAL! Yup, the Giant Squid is the Kraken!

Where is part splendid Kracken, be in film (Clash of the Titans). Cracken, gigantice mega beasts in have many hand, S. Lok is in sea, push up where is big God of sea and nature water name Poseidon. Perseus must google Gorgona and thank Gorgona power, killig to biggist Kracken.

It is one of my favorite mythical beasts!

8 Basilisk

This creature can be people's worst nightmare—I mean, a giant snake?! Cool!
They're range in size, and have unique appearances and powers. I don't think I've ever seen one with legs though, in my opinion that would ruin the entire look.

A pet Basilisk is cool when any gets in my room to see what I'm up (I'm the person who said I'm a Vampire and I'm so proud) my pet Basilisk will look at he or she will be one of my favorite statue. So Basilisk is in my top 3 with Vampires and Leviathan.

Sorry have to correct people here first the basilisk doesn't turn people to stone bylooking them in the eyes that's medusa and second why tf would you want a pet that can make you drop dead by looking it in the eyes.

I'm not sure if this is all J. K. Rowling's own creature or some one else's but who cares this guy is cute and super cool, and I would like one as a pet. (But of course I would need a spell to make it so it can't turn people into stone.)

9 Centaur A centaur, or occasionally hippocentaur, is a mythological creature with the upper body of a human and the lower body of a horse.

Centaur is mythology creature, half people and half horse. Good occurrence centaur to serial Xena, Princess warrior. Centaur is slowly speed and he is great power.

I feel like in a way they almost aren't beasts...

Don't mess with these guys.

10 Pegasus

Pegasus is a white-winged horse that sprang from the neck of the Gorgon Medusa when Perseus beheaded her. ... The name Pegasus is derived from the Greek pegai which means "springs" or "waters," and Chrysaor's name means "the golden sword. Pegasus was an immortal, winged horse that sprang from the neck of the beheaded Gorgon Medousa (Medusa). It was tamed by Bellerophon who rode it into battle against the fire-breathing monster known as the Khimaira (Chimera). ... Pegasos winged his way onto Olympos where he became the thunderbolt-bearer of Zeus.

My compare Pegasus to great art flying horse of film (Clash of the Titans). I film be white Pegasus of under power evil lord name Calibus. Pegasus wait on saving. Pegasus save his man name Perseus, and Pegasus me come back lost power. My popular Pegasus of film (Clash of the Titans).

My compare Pegasus of discover on film (Clash of the Titans). White flying horse (Pegasus), of power and clever Pegasus of this film comparison to Pegasus power.

A Pegasus is one of the main Mythical creatures in the book I'm writing. The other's are Dragons, Griffins and Phoenixes.

The Contenders
11 Minotaur
12 Kitsune

Kitsune are often portrayed as wild, occasionally wicked foxes, who delight in mischief, pranks, or evil. They are often seen as tricksters or sometimes even powerful sorcerers who use their abilities for evil. Even so, they are known to keep their promises, repay any debts, and remember friendships. There are thirteen different kinds of Kitsune, each with a corresponding element, listed as follows: Heaven (or Celestial or Prime), Void (or Dark), Wind, Spirit, Fire, Earth, River, Ocean, Mountain, Forest, Thunder, Time and Sound.

In Naruto one of the main characters has the power of a fox. In Pokemon the designers were inspired by Kitsune for the design of Ninetails. Everyone would wanted Kitsune's powers and stay young and live at least 1,000 years.

Number 2 should be kitsune because kitsunes every time a kitsune gets more tails the stronger it gets it can breath fire for a short distance and the heaven kitsune very powerful it's one of the mythical creatures for people who really know mythical creatures.

This list definitely needs more Japanese creatures, they are the best. Kitsune isn't an exception, it should be much higher.

13 Leviathan

I'm sorry but how is the kraken higher than the leviathan on this list?

He appears to be a whale looking shark, why isn't he number 1?

Come on why isn't in the #1 he looks so cool he should be #1.

Leviathan is an amazing storm creatures.

14 Vampire

This should really be higher…. Vampires are really cool due not not because of sucking blood, but because of unique behaviors such as waking up in light, turning into bats, and can be rather very calm yet dangerous people. And yes I should give credit to the blood thing because it is also a unique behavior. Also, Count Dracula is an insanely
good example of how awesome vampires are.

Vampires crave the blood of the living, whom they hunt during the night. ... Vampires are potentially immortal, but they do have a few weaknesses. They can be destroyed by a stake through the heart, fire, beheading and direct sunlight, and they are wary of crucifixes, holy water, and garlic. Vampires Though they can last weeks without blood, more than two months will result in them becoming extremely weak and decomposing.

Come on their vampires just vote for them NOW!

"I want to suck your blood!"

15 Wyvern

Its simply the best and requires no explanation.

Wyverns are so cool and I like that they are like dragons but really not

A dragon but better

Wyverns are strong dragons that come in three powers Lightning poisoning and fire

16 Anubis

Why is he here? This is a list of mythical beasts, not Egyptian gods.

17 Banshee

A terrifying but incredibly fascinating chance at stories to tell around the campfire.

Tell Banshee stories around the campfire It's great.

18 Medusa

Her eyes are open nobody look!

19 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 ...read more.

Scary legend or a dino?

20 Golem

I like golems because there are different types like Regular, ice, molton, root, and more! They arer one of my favorite mythical creatures. In Super Scribble Nauts I would always make mythical creatures like him

We need more Golems in Minecraft.

The Golem is a beast from Prague.

21 Nemean Lion

It should be last

22 Cerberus

My comparison to three head Cerebus in Cerebus of film (Clash of the Titans). The my sorry of me last Post Comment, in film (Clash of the titans), his be film Cerebus two head and nothing three head. In film Cerebus dispose of ranger to gate of place Medusa. Medusa in the same way the Gorgon.

Great creation Cerebus be of film (Clash of the Titans). In his film be Cerebus black three head big dog with knife teeth. Cerebus in film be guard Gorgon woman. Perseus in film winning fight vs Cerebus. Cerebus is hystory mythus principal guard Hades round.

Cerberus is the 3 headed huge dog from Greek mythology! Lives in the underworld and is epic!

I feel bad for it. When you die you should really give it a doggie treat as you pass by him.

23 Chupacabra

Very cool monster but the problem is what is it we have no idea what kind of monster is it might be an alien or a mange dog or something else.

Three headed cat
