Top Seven Terrifying Creatures
Both the Harry Potter series and the soon-to-be-released Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them film feature many extraordinary creatures. Some of them are wonderful, but others are frightening. Below are my top seven terrifying creatures.
Having the ability to both Petrify and kill their victims, you would not want to be anywhere near them.
These soul-sucking creatures are not only scarily described but also creepily portrayed in the films.
There was a hand protruding from the cloak, and it was glistening, grayish, slimy-looking, and scabbed” (Prisoner of Azkaban 83).
Contrary to the magical and beautiful creatures found in Disney films, these mermaids would give anyone nightmares.
These giant eight-legged spiders terrify more people than just Ron. The description of them being “the size of a small elephant” (Chamber of Secrets 276) would give anyone the creeps.
Unlike Hagrid, I would not want to go anywhere near these beasts. The fiery power they possess in their enormous bodies creates a formidable foe.

Given that we don’t know much about this particular creature, it might be a bit premature classifying it as terrifying. However, the name and uncertainty adds to the terror.
The creatures themselves are scary, but the thought that you could lose control and hurt one of your closest friends, just like Lupin did, is even scarier.
Which creature do you find most terrifying? Are there others you would add to the list? Let us know in the comments!
