"Fairy Nargles spotted on pensioner's wig"
—The Daily Prophet[src]

The Nargle is a creature that Luna Lovegood and Xenophilius Lovegood believe exists, though not many others do. The Nargle is known to infest mistletoe[1] and to be a mischievous thief[2]. Luna Lovegood claims that her Butterbeer cork necklace and her Dirigible plum earrings keep the Nargles away and that her papers and shoes were taken by Nargles.

When Harry Potter and Cho Chang were about to kiss under the mistletoe just prior to Christmas 1995, Harry jokes that Nargles may be infesting it. Cho, who had never heard Luna discuss her belief in this creature, was confused, so Harry let the topic drop. However the Daily Prophet wrote a short column about a Fairy Nargle that was found on a pensioner's wig.
