[the fantastic beasts] #1: Meet and Discuss the unique beasts from the movie here










x

Meet the creatures from ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them’


Niffler - mischievous, yet adorable creatures that look like a cross between a mole and a duck-billed platypus and like to steal shiny things. The animals have a magical pouch that allows them to store their treasures.
Bowtruckle - cute little critters that look like a cross between some sort of Praying Mantis and a stick bug brought to life. Unlike stick bugs, Bowtruckles are actually made out tree stems, with their own little branches. They are particularly adept at picking locks.
Demiguise - primate-like critters, which resemble a little orangutan, that have the ability to become invisible at will. They can also see the immediate future, making them hard to catch.
Erumpent - these large creatures look like a rhinoceros, but can actually be quite friendly despite their intimidating form. On the top of their head is a massive, glowing horn full of a lethal fluid which will explode anything it pierces.
Thunderbird - big and beautiful majestic birds. Not only can they create storms by flapping their wings, but they can also sense danger.
Occamy - two-legged winged serpents that look like a mix between a bird and a dragon. As Newt explains in the film, their egg shells are made of pure silver, and they have the ability to shrink or grow to fit in the space available to them.
Nundu - gigantic leopards-like creatures whose necks expand like a puffer fish
Swooping Evil - reptiles with the wings of a beautiful butterfly. Their venom can be used to rid of bad memories.
Graphorns - dinosaur-like creatures whose hides are tougher than a dragon’s and can repel most spells. Newt revealed he had the only breeding pair left in the world and, thanks to his care, they already had one offspring.

Thanks for starting this thread, Jen!

Which one is everyone's favorite Beast? My top 4 is of course the Niffler, Thunderbird, Bowtruckle & Swooping Evil. Although I think it may be very hard to domesticate a Thunderbird & Niffler. For one thing a Thunderbird needs to be outside and a Niffler can get excitable when there are shiny things around.

The Bowtruckle is helpful when it's loyal to you as we've seen Pickett helped Newt escape when he got captured by the MACUSA. I was also very impressed with the Swooping Evil helping (and working with Newt) to rescue Tina when she also got captured by the MACUSA.

Sadly we didn't get enough from the other beasts but that might change soon as we still have 4 movies to go.

A thread for Beasts ...COOL.

Of course my favorite would be a bowtruckle so cute..I wish I could have one like this with me.
Niffler too one of my favorites..But don't bring it when you go to the bank or a jewelry shop
I'd pick Demiguise ( they can see the future and be invisible..I like that ) and thunderbird ( It's so pretty ) too..

Niffler won my heart as well; seems like everyone agrees.

It's cool you like the Demiguise. It's a cool Beast but it's face scares me a bit.

There was still a lot of Beasts inside Newt's suitcase. I really hope we meet them all soon. In the book, there are A LOT more and some of them are dangerous. I wonder if Newt only has up to Category 4 beasts?

XXXXX: Known wizard killer / impossible to train or domesticate.
XXXX: Dangerous / requires specialist knowledge / skilled wizard may handle.
XXX: Competent wizards should cope.
XX: Harmless / may be domesticated.
X: Boring.

Its a mixture between an owl and a monkey I think..That's what I have figured anyway

May be not..I mean Newt's passion to magical creatures may be will lead him to have at most one of those creatures to study them but will take the possible safety procedures.

Okay, according to the book, here are the classifications of the Beasts in the OP:

Niffler - xxx
Bowtruckle - xx
Demiguise - xxxx
Erumpent - xxxx
Thunderbird - (not in the book)
Occamy - xxxx
Nundu - xxxxx
Swooping Evil - (not in the book)
Graphorn - xxxx

So far the most dangerous that Newt has is the Nundu. And he can't domesticate it so I feel like this Beast may have some importance going forward in the movies?

I don't know why he's keeping it but of course he wants to just help it in any way he can.

Btw, I forgot to include the Swooping Evil but then it's also not in the book so we don't know what it's classification is.

I'll check my FBAWTFT book this weekend and list other characteristics/traits of the Beasts in the OP.
