Nifflers were the breakout star of the first “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” film. Everybody loved them, and most people left the theater wanting to get one. But if you look past their cuteness, you may realize that actually owning one of these little guys may be a bit destructive to your lifestyle. Here are six places you would not want a Niffler to be with you.
1.Bank or Jewelry Store
No. 1 includes more than one location, but both were featured in the film, so we already know why they wouldn’t be a good fit there. The bank is an establishment meant to protect the public’s wealth. If a Niffler were able to crawl around as they please, most people would find their balances a bit lower than they were that morning. As for jewelry stores, the movie gives a pretty good showing of what they would do there. (Although Newt seemed to make the situation a bit worse with his destructive path trying to recapture the Niffler.)
For this example, we have the expertise of Hagrid backing us. Just imagine having a Niffler running around in your own house! You would never have another peaceful moment. You would spend all your time chasing the little guy around and putting things back where they belong. Whenever you felt like you misplaced something, it was probably because the Niffler took it.
Having a Niffler in a hotel could be just about the worst thing possible. Imagine finding out it got lose and you don’t know where it could possibly be. There are hundreds of rooms and even more people whose possessions it could be going through. Not only will you have to find the Niffler, but you’ll have to return everyone’s possessions afterward.
4. On a Date
Especially a first date. Just imagine trying to get to know someone when a Niffler runs across the table and steals from your partner. You want to get their stuff back, but how do you combat a little creature designed to steal?
5. The Theater
While the theater is not a place for only wealthy visitors, there will be many people with nice trinkets who attend. With their attention focused on what’s taking place up on stage, they are prime candidates to be a Niffler’s victim.
6. Any Place with Crowds
Basically, any place with crowds will be a Niffler’s favorite spot. They can move from one person to another and no one will know the difference. The only thing that will be able to stop them is their own greed.
