*** 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.

** 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]]. 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]].

*** With the [[http://variety.com/2017/film/news/jude-law-dunbledore-fantastic-beasts-sequel-1202029157/ announcement]] that Creator/JudeLaw will play young Dumbledore, everyone who took over from Creator/HeathLedger in Film/TheImaginariumOfDoctorParnassus is in this film series.



** This is the second time Samantha Morton and Colin Farrell [[Film/MinorityReport are in the same movie but don't have any real scenes together, Colin's character is an American federal agent]] and [[spoiler:not what he seems (Witwer seems corrupt due to his ambition but is actually a straight-arrow; Graves turns out to be a different person entirely) and ends up dead (as good as, anyway, in Graves' case) when the conspiracy is revealed]].

** Several long-time fans have taken issue with the lack of diversity in the casting choices of the main characters, especially since the film is not based on a book. Others have insisted that it isn't really that much of an issue because of the varied background characters in the trailer.
