YMMV: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
  • Nightmare Fuel: 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.
    • The Lethifold, mentioned above, would also count, due to the fact that they sneak up on unsuspecting victims and smother them in their sleep. And digests them on the spot and leaves no evidence of their demise.
    • The Manticore, a Shout-Out to classical Greek Mythology. It has a man's head, a lion's body, and a scorpion's tail, and its sting causes instant death. If that wasn't enough, its skin is nigh-invulnerable to magic. Not to mention it can speak intelligently and croons while it eats its prey. And Hagrid possibly crossbred one.note 
    • Not to mention the only record of a Chimera being killed "led to the unlucky wizard in question falling from his winged horse".note 
    • Then there's the Quintapeds. According to legend they were once a family of wizards before they were 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.
