Gnarlak is a minor antagonist in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. He is a goblin who owns a bar called The Blind Pig, which operates several illegal activities.

He was portrayed by Ron Perlman, who also played Slade in Teen Titans, Bular in Trollhunters, Xibalba in The Book of Life, the High Mage in the 2003 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the Lich in Adventure Time, Kago in Tarzan II, Warhok in Kim Possible, the Stabbington Brothers in Tangled, Fire Lord Sozin in Avatar: The Last Airbender, Clayface in Batman: The Animated Series, Rumor in The Batman, and Mr. Grasping in An American Tail: The Treasure of Manhattan Island.


Gnarlak was a goblin who owned a bar called The Blind Pig, which was involved in criminal racketeering and frequented by many criminals and other shady characters. Gnarlak himself owned two wands, which under wand-possession laws around non-wizards in America hinted at some kind of criminal behaviour.

While looking for monsters that had escaped from Newt Scamander's briefcase, Scamander, along with Porpentina and Queenie Goldstein and Jacob Kowalski, went to the Blind Pig to get information from Gnarlak. Gnarlak refused to help them until he saw Scamander's Bowtruckle, named Pickett. He said if he gave them information, he wanted them to give him Pickett because Bowtruckles where good at picking locks. They agreed, but Gnarlak had already called the magic police force on them to claim the reward put out on them by Percival Graves, and they began arresting everyone in sight. Gnarlak began to laugh in victory, only for Kowalski to punch him unconscious and grab Pickett back from him before escaping. It is unknown what happened next, but presumably Gnarlak was arrested for his illegal activities.
