The Liveships from Robin Hobb take the cake. Who wouldn't want a talking ship?
Can I mention the cyberdemon from the DoomII video game? That thing ceeped me out every time I head it's metal leg approach from far off.

Ah man, the steam demons were cool too.

Evil Not-A-Chickens are awesome too. They terrorize mud people villages.
(I'm sorry in advance. It's probably best that you ignore this or, if you wish to reply, reply in the T. Goodkind forums so that this post doesn't get crazy.)

Their is a D&D novel called the Wyverns Spur, I think you would like a lot.
Beholders are pretty cool because of their various but finite abilities, of course in d&d they are getting a bit over done.
I also like Audry II in little shop of horrors

I admit that my entry might possibly not have been what the original poster was going for exactly, but Heffalumps are creatures, you know.
You, on the other hand, have introduced a deity. Very much a singular entity, and a vegetable one at that.
I'm all disgruntled now...
As an aside (and a slightly more serious one): Murrin's right, of course. And the Viriconium series is one of those classics I think just about no-one would ever regret reading. Here it is, all ready to order:
Getting back to critters - the one that frightened me most as a child was Tolkien's Balrog. I guess it can't be my favorite for that very reason - but it sure made an impression. In the book, mind, not the film!
My favorite - though those were frightening too - were the steeds of the Nazgul. When you're young (or not so young, even) horses are pretty big and awesome, and the idea of riding 'em is daunting and wonderful all at once. But then imagine you can fly with them - and they're really cool and powerful (to put it simply).
So I guess - if Heffalumps don't count - it's got to be them: the Fell Beasts.

Wolves!! Dire wolves in aSoIaF, Nighteyes in Hobb's books, and the pack of wolves owned by Azhure (sp?) in Douglass' Axis trilogy, just to name a few.
Seriously in every story with wolves in them they absolutely own, i wouldnt wanna take one on.

Wolves are ultimately the best, even better than dragons IMO.

I rather liked the fire demon (Calcifer) from Howl's Moving Castle. I also liked the Ents in LoTR. Some people I know find Treebeard boring and skip over that section, but I loved reading Treebeard's musings. I'm also intrigued by the legend of the Ent Wives. And who couldn't fall in love with Falkor, the Luck Dragon, in Ende's The Neverending Story? Of course, my first love affair with fantasy creations began with the Cat in the Hat. My favorite Milne character is poor Eeyore.
