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

Newt Scamander

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.

Newt is very cute and I think that his quirkyness makes him on of the best characters JK Rowling ever created it's not often that you see the dude introvert as the leading character.

He is just a sweet cinnamon roll. my friends haven't seen the moive so they don't understand how I feel about this movie and this character.

Way better than harry, basically my favorite movie character ever

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.

Her character was ruined in the sequel.

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.

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.

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

I hope he will return in sequels.

He's the best

Gellert Grindelwald

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.

Best villain. That was some awesome acting from Johnny Depp

He's awesome. I love Johnny Depp.

Better than voldemort

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.

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?

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!

Seraphina Picquery

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

Annoying,so far.

Modesty Barebone

The best part as you knew she had so much more interesting hidden characteristics. She could definitely do magic with her brother Credence.

Pickett the Bowtruckle

I thought that was a nice wonderful little scene

Cute and helpful.

Just... so sweet and so adorable.

Gnarlack

The Contenders

Langdon Shaw
Niffler

How is Niffler 15th he's awesome.

Niffler should be first

He’s so cute! And he can be very helpful sometimes

How’s he this low? He’s one of the best things in the movie

Chastity Barebone
Frank the Thunderbird

The most awesome fantastic beast.

He was so epic.

Albus Dumbledore Professor Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore is a fictional character in J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series.

DUMBLEDORE ROCKS! I honestly like Harry Potter better than this but dumbledore is awesome- PrincessAWSOME

Leta lestrange
Mary Lou Barebone

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

Hated her so much for what she did to Credence.

Are you serious? She's terrible!
