*** On the same note, the reveal that French wizards in the second movie would use the word "Non-Magique" ("Non-Magical") rather than the established translation "Moldu" stirred up a lot of complaints from French fans. Some fans argue that "Moldus" was just a translation of "Muggle" anyway and that it makes more sense for French wizards to have their own word, whereas others would rather see the translation they grew up with be used, and point out that unlike the "No-Maj"/"Muggle" debate in which both terms still exist InUniverse, this would make "Non-Magique" the actual French equivalent of those terms, thus [[{{Retcon}} implying that "Moldus" was never a real word In-Universe to begin with]]. A third group is fine with "Moldu" not being used, but considers "Non-Magique" an especially unimaginative alternative, and would have preferred a term inspired by Latin or Germanic etymology.

* HeReallyCanAct: Colin Farrell as [[spoiler: Gellert Grindelwald]] surprised many viewers with his performance, coming across as mysterious, sinister, and genuinely threatening while also charismatic and even sympathetic at times. Many fans have called for him to take over the role fully from Creator/JohnnyDepp.

* SpecialEffectsFailure: When Newt and Jacob are holding and touching the creatures inside Newt's case, there isn't much of a sense of weight or pressure in their interactions with the creatures, which makes it obvious that the actors are just miming their actions and the CGI creatures were added in post-production.

** Creator/JohnnyDepp's casting as [[spoiler:Gellert Grindelwald]]. Some (including, apparently J.K. Rowling herself) were happy with the choice and applauded him for being a great actor, but quite a few think he was all wrong compared to the way they imagined [[spoiler: Grindelwald]] to be from his brief mentions in the books  the image of a handsome, sharp-dressed, silver-tongued man had crystalized so much in the fans' mind that they took the somewhat pudgy, soft-speaking Depp Grindelwald, especially with his extremely strange haircut and mustache, as a betrayal. Others don't especially dislike this version of the character, but think that as an American, he's the wrong fit [[spoiler: for a continental European wizard]]. Also, a significant chunk of the fandom expressed horror not because of the performance but because of the highly publicized allegations of domestic abuse during Depp's divorce proceedings in 2016[[note]]it should be noted that ''Fantastic Beasts'' began shooting in 2015, before said allegations were made public[[/note]]. One admin on the Harry Potter Wiki even resigned over the inclusion on that wiki of a Johnny Depp article, but has since rejoined.

** Michael Gambon once [[https://www.futuremovies.co.uk/filmmaking/qa-with-michael-gambon/adam-tanswell played pranks on Johnny Depp]] who now portrays his character's arch-enemy. Also, the castings of both are [[WTHCastingAgency not particularly beloved by the fandom]].

* CounterpartComparison: In addition to how characters here get compared to those from the main ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' series Credence's severe haircut, [[spoiler:immense magical power, destructive tendencies when mocked or upset]], notable immaturity despite his apparent age, and antiquated mode of dress (even for the 1920s) lend to easy comparisons to the DC character [[ComicBook/{{Etrigan}} Klarion the Witch Boy]]. Being a member of a group that uses "witches" as the default term for magic users doesn't help given the character's title.

** One of main characters being a Muggle. This means we ''finally'' get to see the world of ''Harry Potter'' universe from the viewpoint of a Muggle. Not to mention said Muggle is a nice and open-minded man, unlike the xenophobic Dursleys.
