IS it me, or does this thing seem alot more dangerous then the Dementor? -Lemniwinks It's you, hehehe

Speaking scienceologicaly: This is a demenor on vacation. {{SUBST:user:rocky0718/sig2}}Rocky0718{{SUBST:user:rocky0718/sig2}}

Hahaha, scienceologicaly.... you mean "scientifically?" And I think it is more dangerous. -- John Breasly

I don't think they're more dangerous than Dementors. It could be argued that they are just as dangerous, but I would personally consider the Dementors to be far more dangerous. The Dementors seem to appear in a larger area (anywhere north or south of the subtropics) than the Lethifolds (only in the tropics). Lethifolds simply devour one victim at a time, while Dementors have the ability of the Dementor's Kiss - which is widely regarded to be worse than death - so the Dementors have the more dangerous ability. Dementors also have an area effect of instilling coldness and depression on anyone in the area which in fact acts as a counter to the only known defense against them: it is known to be much harder to produce a patronus under the effects of a Dementor. The only defense Lethifolds have on this is their nocturnal nature. The only thing more dangerous about Lethifolds is that they appear to be less intelligent and attack for food rather than for rare and specific purposes.

New Image - Is that even a Lethifold?

The gif from the new Fantastic Beasts trailer... do we know that that is a lethifold for sure? Like has it been confirmed? Because until it is confirmed to use that (unconfirmed) image goes against wiki policy, when we have an existing confirmed canon image available.

Besides... it and the other cloak-cloth-whatever on the buildings are a) much bigger than we've been led to believe lethifolds are and b) aren't... really acting like lethifolds. Anyone have confirmation that it is a lethifold, or is it ok to now swap an image out based on sheer assumption? Estrildis (talk) 16:09, July 25, 2018 (UTC)

I wonder if JK Rowling was also inspired by the Shining, the Lethifold does bear a simularity to a manta ray Draph91 (talk) 13:17, June 26, 2019 (UTC)
