Creatures in the wizarding world were comprised of both magical and non-magical entities, which were split by the Brazilian Ministry of Magic into three classifications: Being, Beast, or Spirit. The current definition for these categories was laid down by Minister for Magic Grogan Stump in 1811.[1]

Ministry rating

The Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures classified magical creatures by perceived dangerousness on a scale from one (X) to five (XXXXX):[1]

Classification Description Examples
X Boring[1] Flobberworm, Horklump[1]
XX Harmless / might be domesticated[1] Gnome, Bowtruckle, Ghoul[1]
XXX Competent wizard should cope[1] Pixie, Doxy, Hippogriff[1]
XXXX Dangerous / required specialist knowledge / skilled wizard might handle[1] Erumpent, Erkling, Unicorn[1]
XXXXX Known wizard killer / impossible to train or domesticate[1] Dragon, Acromantula, Werewolf[1]

All known beasts, beings and spirits fell into these categories.[1]

Mythological creatures

There were several creatures that the Lovegood family believed in the existence of, which might be mythological such as the Crumple-Horned Snorkack. Stories of these creatures had been known to appear in the Lovegoods' magazine, The Quibbler.[2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10]
