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

The Top Ten

1 Newt Scamander

Way better than harry, basically my favorite movie character ever

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

I had a crush on him! I love Newt Scamander!

2 Queenie Goldstein

She shows that a woman can be strong, brave, and independent without losing her femininity. She is a deep person who has so much wisdom and compassion about her that you can't help but love her. Her immense and rare powers as a witch mark her as special but she doesn't allow it to make her narcissistic. The fact that she knows and doesn't deny how beautiful she is speaks to her self-confidence, and it also makes the fact that she falls in love with an ordinary muggle so beautiful and real. I don't think anyone but Hermione could compare to Queenie.

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

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

Her character was ruined in the sequel. - Tia-Harribel

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.

Very underrated, but a pretty adorable character.

4 Jacob Kowalski

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.

A great guy

5 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

6 Gellert Grindelwald

He's awesome. I love Johnny Depp. - girlcool

Better than voldemort

He is the best!

As Percival Graves he was one of the best characters in the whole movie, no way should he be below the utterly awful character that is Seraphina Picquery! I really hope he kills her off at the beginning of Crimes Of Grindelwand as her reign actually ends the same year as the film is.
