Best Characters in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Top ten best characters in the Harry Potter spinoff movie series: Fantastic Beasts.

The Top Ten

1 Queenie Goldstein

Erhaps my most favorite female character in the Harry Potter world (sorry Hermione). She's not too stand out for being very intelligent or ambitious, but her being "ordinary", femininely sweet but not sickening, is why I can relate to her more than I can to Hermione. She's also very compassionate, kind, and thoughtful. And I couldn't thank her enough for wearing pink and thus disassociating my favorite colour from horrible Umbridge

Queenie and Newt were my favorites. Queenie was so sweet kind and powerful. I loved her so much - FavoriteFightingFrenchman

I agree. I had a really hard time picking between Queenie and Newt for my favorite character. - Ravenclaw

She's awesome in a quirky way. She reminds me of Luna. - Goku02

Queenie is a QUEEN! Need I say more?

2 Newt Scamander

Way better than harry, basically my favorite movie character ever

He kind and curious, and drab Tina is annoying in the movie.

He's awesome and funny. He has a good heart, and he screws everything up and gets into trouble all the time, just like me! Not to mention he's quite powerful, being able to hold his own against Gellert Grindelward for a while. - Goku02

3 Porpentina Goldstein

Tina is amazing. A strong leading lady who stole Newt's heart. Tina has great skills of magic and is misjudged by her first impression of strictness. She has a soft side and is kind and has pity for everything. She appreciates the creatures and will make Newt's life more fun, with her adventurous, strong, and justified personality.

Tina is the best! She shows every aspect of a powerful woman who knows what she wants and works for it. Also I really want to see her growing relationship with Newt. A little annoying at first, but she soon grew on me.

AKA Tina is an amazing character! At first she seems like the kind of girl who has big authorities because she catches Newt. But in the end, she befriends him and maybe even starts to like him.

Tina was annoying for more than half of the movie but she kinda grew on me near the end. - Tia-Harribel

4 Credence Barebone

Ezra Miller's performance as Credence was, in my opinion, the best performance in the film, he made me feel very uneasy, uncomfortable and very chilling with a sense of darkness and a dread of coldness but I knew why he was like that and that's the most impressive aspect and I wanted to know so much more about this character who is mentally damaged and manipulated. - idontknow

Credence was my favorite! I felt so sorry for him. I wanted to go through the screen and give him a hug.

Give this guy a hug...outstanding performance by Ezra Miller by the way!

He suffered so much. He deserved better. - Tia-Harribel

5 Jacob Kowalski

Jacob was funny but not a character who's only purpose was comic relief. His storyline made me cry the most especially at the end - FavoriteFightingFrenchman

Only 9th? Jacob is awesome! He's absolutely hilarious and is a very good person and friend. I wish his memory hadn't been wiped. - Goku02

I hope he will return in sequels. - Tia-Harribel

Come on at least let him be in the top five. He is funny.

6 Seraphina Picquery

I think she has a lot of potential to develop into a great character in sequels. - Ravenclaw

Annoying,so far. - Tia-Harribel

7 Gellert Grindelwald

He did not look like I though he would - FavoriteFightingFrenchman

He looked very different! I mean come on! White, spiky hair? Grindelwald? PSH UNREAL! - parkl911

8 Modesty Barebone
9 Gnarlack
10 Langdon Shaw

The Contenders

11 Pickett the Bowtruckle

His green, leaf friend was one of my favorite fantastic beasts - FavoriteFightingFrenchman

Cute and helpful. - Tia-Harribel

He's so cute. - Goku02

Just... so sweet and so adorable. - AnonymousChick

Number 6 on best characters? Are you kidding? She not only deserves to be on bottom, but she deserves to be on negative! - AnonymousChick

Are you serious? She's terrible! - Goku02

Hated her so much for what she did to Credence.

This woman scared me so much - FavoriteFightingFrenchman

13 Chastity Barebone
14 Frank the Thunderbird
