** 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.

** Creator/JohnnyDepp's casting as [[spoiler:Gellert Grindelwald]]. A significant chunk of the fandom expressed horror, citing the highly publicized allegations of domestic abuse during his 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. On the other hand, some (including, apparently J.K. Rowling herself) were happy with the choice and applauded him for being a great actor, regardless of his personal life. More still just think that as an American, he's the wrong fit [[spoiler: for a continental European wizard]].

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]].

*** Thestral: "Thester", an archaic English word that means, well, dark. So OK not all of them.

*** The fact that a Kelpie is having fun messing with Muggles by letting them see it, then changing into something entirely different when they come searching. It is ''literally'' the ultimate magical troll creature.

** The Lethifold sneaks up on unsuspecting victims and smothers them in their sleep. And ''digests them on the spot and leaves no evidence of their demise.'' They also have a [[ItCanThink deceptive cunning to boot]], that coupled with the fact that they can blend in with a fairly large range of things, [[ParanoiaFuel means that they could be anywhere.]]

And even that might not help, because it could smother and eat a victim before they could reach their wand.



** Then there's the Quintapeds. According to legend they [[WasOnceAMan were once a family of wizards]] before they were [[BodyHorror transformed into monsters]] by a rival wizard family, who were in turn eaten by the beasts they created. Whether or not the legend is true, these five-legged carnivorous beasts rate five Xs, and are so dangerous the island they live on has been marked completely hazardous and enchanted so it can't be placed on maps. God help us all if those things are capable of breeding.

* 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, which makes it obvious that the actors are just miming the actions of interacting with the CGI models of the creatures added in post-production.
