10 Thestrals

Thestral in Harry Potter

Thestrals in Harry Potter were dark-skinned winged horses and were generally seen as having a more displeasing physical appearance. The Ministry of Magic even categorized them as dangerous, even though Harry Potter portrayed them as peaceful and calm in nature. Their negative reputation might be connected to the fact that one could only see these majestic beasts after having been faced with death.

In Harry Potter, Hagrid and Luna Lovegood vouched for Thestrals’ loyalty and intelligence, even using them as means of transportation. According to Hagrid, they listened to their rider’s voices and would travel to specific locations when asked. Thestrals made a clear distinction between friend and foe and their loyalty drove them to protect their friends from any harm making them perfect companions in Harry Potter.

9 Hedwig

Harry Potter’s favorite owl, Hedwig, made his first appearance early on in the Harry Potter franchise during Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Hedwig was a snowy owl and after being gifted to Harry as a birthday gift from Hagrid, their friendship began to blossom. Owls in Harry Potter were generally used for communication, but Hedwig became much more than a simple flying postal system to Harry.

Hedwig was in pretty much every Harry Potter movie, becoming a recurring creature and exemplifying her loyalty to Harry and his friends. Hedwig was a steadfast companion for Harry and continued to stay loyal to him until the end. Unfortunately, Hedwig met her end in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 when she was struck by the Killing Curse during the Battle of the Seven Potters.

Pickett was extremely skilled at lock picking and his skills came in handy on many occasions in Fantastic Beasts by helping Newt and his friends escape more than one hopeless situation.

Both Newt and Pickett were extremely attached to one another, so much so that Pickett was the only creature that was allowed to travel in Newt’s top pocket.

Firenze even became a divination professor at Hogwarts after Dumbledore wanted to take advantage of the Divination skills innate in centaurs. Firenze was in fact so loyal to Hogwarts that he fought during the Battle of Hogwarts and was injured as a consequence. Firenze did not care that his loyalty to Harry and Dumbledore would hurt his reputation with the centaurs. In the end, Harry Potter showed Firenze being allowed back into his herd of centaurs, creating a happy end to his story.

6 Fang

Buckbeak was a hippogriff in Harry Potter and played a significant role in the lives of Hagrid, Harry, Ron and Hermione. Buckbeak was sentenced to death in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban after attacking Draco Malfoy, but was saved with the help of a Time-Turner and consequently taken in by Sirius Black.

4 Mrs. Norris

Mrs. Norris might not have been the first creature that comes to mind when thinking about loyal creatures, yet the Harry Potter movies made it clear that Argus Filch’s cat was more to him than just a pet. When thinking about Filch, one always associated him in connection with his cat. Sadly though, the presence of a feline did not make Filch more likable, but her loyalty to him couldn’t be denied.

Mrs. Norris formed a strong bond with Argus Filch and alerted him of any roaming students in Hogwarts. Their loyal connection to one another made them an unrivaled team in catching misbehaving Hogwarts students and resulted in students hating both of them equally. Mrs. Norris was intelligent and only loyal to Argus Filch, never leaving his side and constantly looking to fulfill her masters quest in being a successful school caretaker.

3 Aragog

Aragog first appeared in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and definitely made for a frightening cinema experience. Aragog was part of the Acromantula species, huge spiders that even devoured human flesh. During his lifetime, Aragog produced many children, who at one point even attacked Harry and Ron to satisfy their hunger for flesh.

Aragog might initially be perceived as a rather foul-looking and dangerous creature in Harry Potter, his loyalty to Hagrid did however keep him from causing any harm to humans. Aragog constantly resisted the urge to eat human flesh, as his close friendship with Hagrid meant too much to him. It was even rumored that the only reason behind his attack on Ron and Harry resulted out of good parenthood, as he did not want to let his children starve. Aragog was therefore not only a loyal creature, but also a loving father.

Fawkes had to be one of the most loyal and devoted creatures in all of Harry Potter history. Fawkes was a phoenix and, staying true to his nature, Harry witnessed Fawkes going up in flames before being reborn as a younger version of himself. Fawkes showed extreme signs of loyalty to both Harry and Dumbledore in the Harry Potter movies.

Without Fawkes, Harry would have died from the venom of the basilisk in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, even flying Harry and his friends to safety afterward. During the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, Fawkes came to Dumbledore’s aid and rescued his life by throwing his own body in front of Dumbledore to absorb the Killing Curse. His loyalty far exceeded that of any ordinary creature in Harry Potter and he became a true friend to Dumbledore, Harry, Ron and Hermione.

Nonetheless, it was undeniable that Nagini served loyally under her master and disposed of anyone that stood in the way of Lord Voldemort in Harry Potter. Since the release of the Fantastic Beasts movies, much more was known about Nagini, as she appeared to be a Maledictus cursed into turning into a snake.

Throughout the Harry Potter movies, Nagini stayed loyally at the side of Lord Voldemort and her cruelty became more and more apparent. Like her master, Nagini had no sympathy for anyone except herself and Voldemort, executing his orders without fail. Voldemort even turned her into a Horcrux, showing their connection to one another.
