Top Ten Mythical Creatures You Would Want As a Pet


The Top Ten

1 Dragon Dragon A dragon is a legendary creature, typically with serpentine or reptilian traits, that features in the myths of many cultures.

I have a fire one. His name is flames, he controls all the fire in the universe. He drinks lava, but is allergic to water. He eats spicy food. Flames is very red, and has sequins all over. He is also very friendly and loves kids, but has a terrible temper. He's never set me on fire, he protects me. - ToptenPizza

I already have one. I call her Sister and boy does she like to blow hot air! She's cute though. - Britgirl

My friend once bought a dragon from Pet Smart; but one day, he told me it was hungry. I never heard from him again. He must be on vacation or something...

Talking about fantasy dragons here not aqua dragons idiots, Dragons aren't real bruh, he'd eat ya plus dragons are savages anyway.

2 Phoenix Phoenix

A truly loyal companion who never dies. But I would need to fireproof a few things. - PositronWildhawk

My mom and dad are nurses so we could use it's healing tears and heal the world! We'd have to fireproof a lot of stuff and I don't think that would be easy.

It would revive me over and over again and cook BBQ for me daily for lunch and dinner! I got to fireproof some of my stuff, though.

An imortal bird made of fire, I mean its an obvious choice.

3 Hippogriff Hippogriff

I have one and its awesome I took him to Hogwarts for bring your pet to school day along with all the other mythological pets I have hovering over my shoulder. - ToptenPizza

Definitely would want one. I miss Buckwheat! - Hermione_Granger220

Your a fan of harry potter huh?

4 Griffon Griffon

I can understand why Sheldon Cooper wanted one. - PositronWildhawk

Powerful and beautiful!

Cousin of the Hippogriff. So cute! - Hermione_Granger220

Definitely. I have one named Griffy and he makes sure that nobody, and I mean nobody, gets into dorm at Hogwarts. One time my friend tried to get into my dorm, said he needed to borrow something from me. For some reason he wasn’t at Charms class the next day...

5 Hydra Hydra

If I had a pet hydra I would bring it to all my family gatherings so each head can keep an eye out on bad things that my cousins do in different areas of the house! Then there's ABSOLUTELY NO WAY that I can get in trouble for nothing! >

Because who doesn't want to cuddle one of the spawns of satan. Just look at it. I want one. It can kill people I hate and I ride around on it and look down on people as the run around screaming. I want a hydra.

This thing is pretty much undefeatable you can eat one of its heads when your hungry and it will grow right back and it breath poison so if any one or thing tries to harm you it will kill it. its AMAZING!

I don’t really think I’d want one as a pet... I don’t think I’d want the offspring of Typhon and Echidna, the father and mother of monsters. Seriously. Typhon is called the father of all monsters. - Hermione_Granger220

6 Minotaur Minotaur
7 Gorgon Gorgon

Who would want Medusa as a pet? Wow. - Hermione_Granger220

8 Nine-tailed Fox Nine-tailed Fox

Although they can be very annoying and even malevolent tricksters once you get to know and befriend one they can become the most loyal of friends, guardians, and even lovers. Even though their morality is different from a human as long as you respect them and give them freedom they will be very kind in return.

Foxes, irrespective of the number of tails, are still annoying. - PositronWildhawk

Isn't this a pokemon? - Sammy_Zee

I want one.

Gotta love the unicorns. Too bad they were off frolicking while Noah was putting the animals in the arc. That's the REAL reason they're extinct. - Merilille

I would love a pet unicorn
