Top 10 Cryptids / Unknown Creatures

Cryptids are unknown creatures reportedly seen by people whose existence has not been verified by science. Some are large, while others may be small. Some are scary, while others are not. But which one is the scariest, or the coolest, or the best in your opinion.

The Top Ten

1 Bigfoot In North American folklore, Bigfoot or Sasquatch are said to be hairy, upright-walking, ape-like creatures that dwell in the wilderness and leave footprints.


There is a good possibility that Bigfoot could be out there, with all the sightings and trace evidence. I do believe there could be a Bigfoot out there. I believe in a lot of things, really. I'm curious and I keep an open mind.

One of the most recognized cryptids, fits in with nature, and eludes man.

It's a gorilla.

2 Chupacabra

This should be number one cause this is the most dangerous creature ever lived except for mothman

They are real one of my moms friends (she is a scientist) has seen one. I also know how they were made - Cinderpool

I believe that it is a canine that was created in a lab experiment gone haywire

Many people think it's a Coyote with mange. But what explains the dead livestock drained of blood?

3 Mothman In West Virginia folklore, the Mothman is a legendary creature reportedly seen in the Point Pleasant area from November 12, 1966, to December 15, 1967 . The first newspaper report was published in the Point Pleasant Register dated November 16, 1966, titled "Couples See Man-Sized Bird ... Creature ... more.

An immortal creature that is singular and capable and saving and killing. What we need to find out is if Mothman is our friend or foe.

I prefer his winged human form more (Indrid Cold)

I agree with the last post we supposed to discuss about the mothman
not your randomness and please keep on topic we supposed to talking
about this creature not you and I demand you to stop your randomness
or I will called this abusive.

This is the best cryptid this is not fiction this is real but dangerous
It can kill when startled even humans.

4 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 more.

Loch Ness monster might just be a ocean dinosaur still alive

I love the Loch Ness Monster and I think he is REAL

Loch is an awesome short name for him he is awesome and I have seen a movie about him! He is the besstt!

This is the most common creature people think of when they think of the word "cryptid."

5 Jersey Devil

It looks like a gaunt horse with bat wings and a forked tail. Spooky and cool! One of my favorites!

It makes a high pitched screaming noise

6 Banshee

They make a horrible wailing sound when someone is about to die.

My favorite cryptid I would love to research them


7 Lizard Man
8 Yeti

He is the Himalayan Bigfoot. Some claim to have attacked while crossing the Himalayas.

9 Aliens

I am a ALIEN.

I believe aliens could be out there and among us, with all the space and other planets, you know?

10 Grinning Man

One man claimed that the Grinning Man came up to his car one night and spoke to him telepathically. He told him that his name was Indrid Cold and that he meant no harm. He also had questions about UFO sightings. Could he be some kind of humanoid alien? I don't know, but he sounds creepy. I wouldn't want to meet him.

A man named Woodrow Derenberger claimed that the Grinning Man came up to his vehicle one night and telepathically told him his name was Indrid Cold and that he meant no harm. And he seemed to have many questions about UFO sightings. An alien maybe?

His name is Indrid Cold and he's from the planet Lanulos in the galaxy of Genemedes; there are two others named Demo Hassan and Karl Ardo.

The Contenders

11 Dover Demon

I don't think these guys are creepy. I think they are adorable. - Cryptozoologist

One of the scariest in my opinion. What is it? A demon? An alien? No one knows, but some people have came up missing...

I think that most crypids are creepy and do belive of most of them. I think the creepiest one is the cemetary.

12 Mongolian Death Worm

I've always had some wonders about this creature, seems large, but it hides under sand.

13 Beast of Bray Road

He's also called the Michigan Dogman and Wisconsin Werewolf. I love this cryptid. One of the best and most interesting in my opinion. Maybe, just maybe, Werewolves do exsist. Awesome if they did!

14 Loveland Frog
15 Skinwalker
16 Grunch Road Monster

Sighted in New Orleans, it's said to be very similar to the Chupacabra.

17 Ogopogo

There are no dinosaur in this lake
the person that said this is a 50 foot
Mosasaur you are so wrong case you didn't
know that is specific dionsaur is dead.

Yes this is the best cryptid but whatever you do don't swim in the lake that sea monster live
cause that is the last time to see you alive.


18 Night Crawlers

Both 2 sightings of these funny looking creatures were captured on security camera - P-51IsDaBest

Very Cute
Would take one as a pet


19 Wendigo

An evil spirit with an insatiable appetite, it possesses humans, mainly ones that indulge in cannibalism, and it loves flesh and blood. It's also very deformed.

20 Ahool
21 Bunnyman
22 Mokele-mbembe

One of my most favourite cryptids of all time.It has the shape of a sauropod dinosaur,lives in the swamps of Africa and its about 30 ft long which is kind of small for a sauropod but large for an African cryptid.

23 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.

I always think of phineas or Lincoln loud turning into werewolves.

I love Werewolves. Many believe that the Beast of Bray Road and Michigan Dogman could be a type of werewolf.

24 Argopelter
25 Bear Lake Monster
26 Goblin

We have them in my house

Goblins are said to be malevolent or mischievous in nature. It's even said that a Goblin's smile is enough to curdle blood and their laugh is enough to sour milk.

27 Flatwoods Monster

This is what Slender man would look like if he was a female alien.

An alien of sorts?

28 The Goatman

Boatman is awesome but I don't like how it looks

It's believed that he was a scientist that turned into a half man and half goat creature, result of an experiment gone wrong.

29 Hellhound


Black Shuck is supposed to be a Hellhound. You can avoid death by keeping you eyes closed until it's gone. After a while, it will assume you're dead and leave you alone.

30 Am Fear Liath Mor (Big Grey Man Of Ben MacDuhai)

It's like a giant Bigfoot.

31 Popobawa
32 Aswang

The vampire-like shape shifting of the Philippines. They love children and fetuses, which is what they hunt in the night; in the day, they act like a normal human.

33 Michigan Dogman

This is one of my favorites. Similar to the Beast of Bray Road, it's often referred to as a Werewolf and stands well around 7 ft tall. A DJ named Steve Cook once recorded a song about the Dogman and its reported sightings. I LOVE the song.

34 Shadow People

i have one

They feed off of fear. You can repel them by thinking positive thoughts and not showing fear.

These things haunt me to this day. *coughs* "Where the Dead go to Die" *coughs*

35 Ghost Deer

dead deer?

36 Ghoul

They rob graves and feast on corpses.

37 Ningen

This thing is 50 to 100 feet tall and it stalks artic seas. Only things that can be seen on face are mouth and eyes. However no solid evidence exist :( [ even I belive in ningen because u can find it on Google maps]

38 Flying Humanoids

so angels?

39 Lagarfljot Worm
40 Champ

He is often called America's Loch Ness Monster.

41 Beast of Gevaudan

One of the most terrifying and interesting in the world. it's true identity is still under debate but many think it was a wolf-dog hybrid trained to kill humans rather than animals.

As much as I know it Had problems with eating animals so it became a man eater - P-51IsDaBest

42 Mahaha

A demon that stalks people in the arctic, it gets its name from its trademark laugh. Funny enough, it kills its victims by tickling them to death. Despite being a vicious creature, it's easily fooled. For example, if you can trick it into drinking water you can push it into the currents.

What if he meets Ningen? :D

43 Owlman

Also known as the Death Raptor, he is one of England's cryptids. He is often compared to America's Mothman.

44 Kappa

This guy is pretty interesting, and not just in one way. It kinda looks like a cross between a turtle, a frog, and a bird. And it's name means "river child".

45 Ropen

It's often called the "Demon Flyer" of Papua, New Guinea.

46 Beast of Exmoor

Many think it's most likely an escaped big cat.

47 Momo the Monster
48 Spottsville Monster

It's a Bigfoot-like creature spotted in Spottsville, Kentucky. Some eyewitnesses say it can be malnutritioned and afflicted with mange. It's even said to have glowing red eyes.
