What are Harry Potter’s Magical Beasts?
In the Harry Potter universe, there are many different kinds of creatures: beasts, beings, spirits, and unknowns. There are many creatures to be found throughout the Harry Potter saga.
The magical beasts list is long, but here are some of our favorite ones:
- The House Elf – immensely devoted and loyal to the one designated as their master.
- The Mandrake – a magical and sentient plant that has a root that looks like a human.
- The Unicorn – a white horse with a horn sticking out of its head and that possesses magical properties.
- The Hippogriff – a creature that had the front legs, wings, and head of a giant eagle and the body, hind legs, and tail of a horse.
- The Troll – a magical beast of prodigious strength and immense stupidity
- The Werewolf – a human being who becomes an uncontrollable and deadly wolf upon the rising of the full moon.
- The Phoenix – a large scarlet magical bird with red and gold plumage, along with a golden beak and talons, black eyes, and a long tail.
- The Basilisk – a giant serpent, also known as the King of Serpents.
- Dementor – creatures that feed on human happiness and is considered to be one of the foulest to inhabit the wizarding world.
- Dragons – giant winged, fire-breathing reptilian beasts.
- The Inferius – a dead body, reanimated by a Dark Wizard’s spell, similar to a zombie.
- The Thestral – a breed of winged horse with a skeletal body, face with reptilian features, and wide, leathery wings that resemble a bat’s.
