Top 10 Mythical Creatures

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.

Epic, lizard-like, and have a cool ability: flying. Plus, they can be real big and tough, or cute, or calm and gentle.

I have a pet dragon and its name is sparkles. Even though it caught my house on fire and I had to move it is still the love of my life.

Dragons would make dangerous enemies as well as powerful pets. I think it's safe to say that you'd want a dragon on your side more than anything else. - KeyboardHero

Awesome! there the best

3 Mermaid Mermaid A mermaid is a legendary aquatic creature with the head and upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish.

All you haters are forgetting something: There is a myth that Sirens, similar to mermaids, sing beautiful songs to men that way they can lure them in and eat them. Not joking. So, yeah, I guess they are similar to Poison Ivy from the DC Comics.

Mermaids are ugly, they always wear bras and never shirts, but the pic is pretty.

Mermaids are gorge

4 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 more.

It's technically not a mythical creature, but rather a hoax.

It could be real but that would mean it is endangered. =^v^=

Please stop with the =^v^=

Yeah stop doing =^v^= so much, dude.

5 Unicorn

This is my opinion on unicorns from a book I read and I'm saying them because the unicorns in the book are basically the rockstars of the fairy realm which was a way they described them which I don't deny. For example a Unicorn has 3 horns throughout it's life and they shed them like an deer does with it's antlers, or like baby teeth which is an example they tend to use when they desribe it. When a unicorn sheds it's horns it can still keep and use them and they all have magical abillites. The first horn can cure all diseases. The second can be turned into a sword and used as weapon, also it can rid of magical beings possesing you. And the third I can't remember much about it but I do remember that it allows unicorns to change from human form to unicorn form. I'm pretty sure I just bored everyone with what I just told you but if you did find it interesting and might want to read the book the book is called Fablehaven by Brandon Mull, also it is a series so if you read the books hope ...more

Apparently they're used to symbolise Christ so they must be pretty good

They are very cool creatures, but a bit overrated. - KeyboardHero

Unicorns are so adorable.I personally think they should be number 1 on this list

6 Basilisk

I love snakes and it's even bigger if there huge!


7 Pegasus Pegasus

Very beautiful they don't poop rainbows like unicorns and they are so much better so why are they here

Pegasus are beautiful. =^v^=

8 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.

They are so cool I want to be one

Werewolves are awesome! - Hermione_Granger220

Is this even mythical?

I like werewolves. =^v^=

9 Kraken Kraken The Kraken is a legendary sea monster of giant size that is said to dwell off the coasts of Norway and Greenland.

No one stands a chance against the child of the King of the underworld

Yo that looks BEAST I want that as my pet and I'll just call him a dog so it can live in my apartment and eat my sister

Wait is a kraken a giant squid that can kill with one hit?

I love this octupus monster it had been my top 1 as always why not turn this ferocious sea monster as top 1 instead of that fire breathing lizard?

The Contenders

11 Cerberus

A giant dog with three heads and guards the underworld. That's just awesome!

Does he like rock n' roll!

12 Dwarf

dwarves are mythical creatures their also short people the name dwarf originates from the mythological creature words can have two meanings like man it's a gender and another name for the human species

In folklore, a Dwarf was a small being that looked much like a human but had magical powers.

It annoys me to see this on here. Dwarfs are short people, not mythical creatures! =^v^=

13 Centaur Centaur A centaur, or occasionally hippocentaur, is a mythological creature with the upper body of a human and the lower body of a horse.

I love centaurs! - Hermione_Granger220

14 Minotaur
15 Fairy

Fairies are so underrated! Get this at least ear to number 10!

There are many forms of fairies

They might be real but I have never seen one. I like them though. =^v^=

16 Trolls

Are trolls good or evil? Are they even human?

17 Elf

I like elves, they are cute. Ben Drowned from creepypasta looks like an elf but is actually a ghost. =^v^=

18 Cyclops

A cyclops is like a giant, with one eye. - Hermione_Granger220

What exactly do they look like? =^v^=

19 Medusa

Snake head

They are deadly but still beautiful. I like them. =^v^=

One look and you’re dead. - Hermione_Granger220

20 Manitcore

Any monster that involves a cat mixed with a bunch of other creatures automatically makes it awesome. - KeyboardHero

I am not quite sure what a manticore looks like but I think they would look cool. =^v^=

A manticore is a huge lion-like creature with scaly wings like a dragon. Most have horns. They have massive, muscular barbed tails, like a scorpion’s tail. - Hermione_Granger220

21 Kitsune Kitsune

KITSUNE KITSUNE KITSUNE! There so fluffy and adorable! Also Illusion magic in my opinion is one of the strongest magics you can get!

They’re so cute! - Hermione_Granger220

22 Giant

Not real. Stupid. =^v^=

23 Hydra

Way too underrated on this list. Hydra is a big snake creature with 7 heads, and for every head you cut off, it grows 2 more. Killing this thing would be near impossible without skill and strategy. Should be higher on the list.

One of the most terrifying, and dangerous mythical creatures out there. But being that it's father, Typhon has over 50 heads, it would be the only one to beat Hydra without too much trouble. - KeyboardHero

How is it 30! nearly killed percy jackson, fought hercules, and has infinite heads

It’s not impossible to kill a hydra. It’s hard, yes, nearly impossible, but it’s possible.
You have to cut off all the heads before they grow back. If you wait to long, the heads will double, so you have to sear the heads. Burn them. - Hermione_Granger220

24 The Mahaha
25 Griffon

I’ve never seen it spelled that way. It’s either “Gryphon” or “Griffin”. Either one of those is correct. - Hermione_Granger220

26 Imoogi

This is basically a Korean version of the Chinese Dragon. - Hermione_Granger220

27 Hobbits
28 Goblins

Goblins are described as evil and mischievous in modern folklore, but not all folklore describes them that way. They're not always depicted as having green skin either.

Goblins are cute. =^v^=

29 Frankenstein
30 Genie

If Genies actually exist, I really wish I had one.

31 Kigatilik

In Inuit Mythology, the Kigatilik is a cruel, violent demon. They’re also said to be a tribe of spirits. - Hermione_Granger220

32 Aerico

The Aerico is a disease demon from Greek Mythology. They spread diseases such as the Plague and malaria. The Aerico usually can’t be seen, like a spirit, but sometimes takes human form. - Hermione_Granger220

33 Scylla

I love scylla! - Hermione_Granger220

They’re serpent-like creatures, with no arms or legs, just wings. They’re quite adorable, actually! - Hermione_Granger220

36 Vampire

I became interested in vampires 1 year ago:i began to watch adventure time know,marceline abadeer the vampire queen is a special little creature so the reason of my new interest is her.

The Chupacabra is from American folklore. It’s a hideous creature the size of a small bear with long spikes along its back. It has leathery, greenish-gray skin.
The Chupacabra usually feeds on the blood of livestock, especially goats. The name literally means “Goat sucker”. - Hermione_Granger220

I once dreamt that I found one and I name it Monster. =^v^=

Eww. No. - Hermione_Granger220

41 Orcs

They are weird. =^v^=

42 Ents
43 Mummy

Mummies aren't mythical. They do exist, but they don't come back to life. They're just a corpse wrapped in bandage.

I don't mind them but they only live in Egypt. =^v^=

44 Alicorn
45 Lucifer (Devil)
