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 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.

It's a gorilla.

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.

This is arguably the most famous cryptid of all. I see him everywhere.

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?

4 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

5 Loch Ness Monster 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 ...read more.

Scientists are now saying that it is a dinosaur that lives in water but has legs

Some believe it could be a modern day Plesiosaur. Could be...

After Bigfoot, this is a well known cryptid. It looks like a plesiosaur.

V gay I want to be nessie's girl

6 Banshee

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

My favorite cryptid I would love to research them

Ay-yeah!

7 Lizard Man
8 Yeti

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

9 Aliens

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.

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.

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?

The Contenders

11 Dover Demon

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

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 Grunch Road Monster

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

16 Skinwalker
17 Ogopogo

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.

PEOPLE THINK NESSIE IS ALL THE RAGE? THEY HAVN'T SEEN ANYTHING YET, OGOPOGO IS A 50 FOOT MOSASAUR IN A CANADIAN LAKE, IT SCARED PEOPEL SO MUCH THAT THEY THREW ALL THEIR FISH IN THE WATER JUST TO TAME THAT GIANT MONSTER>

18 Ahool
19 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.

20 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.

21 Argopelter
22 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

23 Bear Lake Monster
24 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.

25 Flatwoods Monster

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

An alien of sorts?

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

It's like a giant Bigfoot.

27 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.

28 Lagarfljot Worm
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 Champ

He is often called America's Loch Ness Monster.

31 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

32 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

33 Popobawa
34 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".

35 Ropen

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

36 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.

37 Ghost Deer
38 Beast of Exmoor

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

39 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.

40 Werewolf 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.

41 Ghoul

They rob graves and feast on corpses.

42 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]

43 Spring-heeled Jack
44 Snallygaster
45 Shunka Warakin
46 Vermont Pigman

I would literally be freaked out if I encountered a half man, half pig creature. Honestly, that's just creepy!

47 Corfu Island Creature

It was captured by a tourist in 2015 - P-51IsDaBest

I mean captured on tape - P-51IsDaBest

48 Bubak
49 The Goatman

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

50 The Lusca

It's like a giant Octopus kind of creature.
