The Top Ten

1 Newt Scamander

My cinammon roll

He is amazing!

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

How could you not pick Newt!?! He’s so adorable just like Eddie Redmayne in real life! Love him sooo much!

2 Queenie Goldstein

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

She's adorable - Irank

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.

I wish Queenie was my sister - TwilightKitsune

She truly is one of the best characters

Very underrated, but a pretty adorable character.

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.

4 Jacob Kowalski

A great guy

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.

5 Credence Barebone

Only fifth? Gosh, I expected something like, uh, the second or even the first position... anyway, I find him a spectacular figure. I think Credence and Newt are amongst the greatest Harry Potter characters... But Credence deserves so much love he still doesn't get. I mean, who does not want to hug this vulnerable, problematic, powerful and charismatic young man?

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!
