* {{Woolseyism}}: In Japan, the film is titled ファンタスティック・ビーストと魔法使いの旅 (roughly ''Fantastic Beasts and the Wizard's Journey''), and the bottom of the kana character ビ is elongated into a dragon's tail much like the S in ''Beasts'' in the English logo.

* CriticalResearchFailure: Once Rowling and Pottermore released information on the history of magic in America up to the events of the film, many fans were ''not'' happy with Rowling's interpretation of the Salem Witch Trials, or the appropriation and misunderstanding of Native American cultures.

** The fact that this is yet another prequel trilogy to a beloved franchise, especially coming off the heels of the ''highly'' divisive ''Film/StarWars'' prequels and the equally-received ''Film/TheHobbit'' films. Some say that the new movies will follow in the same path as the aforementioned trilogies while others say to wait and see, as this won't directly tie into the Harry Potter films as much as what the previous prequel trilogies did to their respective franchise.

** The names of the winged horse breeds are taken from the names of mythical horses:
***Abraxan and Aethonian: From Abraxus and Aethon, the horses that pulled the chariot of Helios, the Greek sun god
*** Granian: from Grani, the steed of Sigurd in the Volsunga Saga, and a descendant of Sleipnir.
*** Thestral: "Thester", an archaic English word that means, well, dark. So OK not all of them.

* FridgeHorror: To anyone caught up on the Harry Potter books, the origin of the Scourers at first makes no sense, given we were told in an earlier book that the tragedy of the Witch Hunts, from actual wizard perspectives, is that ''they only killed Muggles'', as actual wizards [[RealityEnsues could easily get out of the mess with their magic]]. To the point mention is made of one NightmareFetishist witch who ''repeatedly'' got herself caught and burned because she [[TooKinkyToTorture enjoyed the sensation of flames under a Fire-Freezing Spell so much]]. The realization, and the dawning horror, is that the book was likely referring to the ''European'' Witch Hunts, which was purely an outburst of Muggle insanity and callous profiteering (see: the Witch Finder General). In America's Salem Witch Hunts, however, the whole affair was orchestrated ''by'' wizards, so those wizards and witches who got caught were probably attacked and rendered helpless ''by their own people'' first.

* NightmareFuel: The Nundu, which resembles a Leopard -- said to be utterly silent, gigantic, and able to wipe out entire villages just by ''breathing'' due to the diseases on its breath; it's so dangerous that the only successful kills have come from one ''hundred'' wizards working in concert. For comparison, that's ten times as many wizards as it takes to subdue the average ''dragon''.
