Beast, in the English language, is most often used as a synonym for animal.
Beast is a comic book superhero. Great agility is his mutant power, and a brilliant scientific mind his non-mutant ability.

Beast started off looking like a normal human except for his large feet, but later looked like a beast. He may have changed back and forth since.

He was a member of the X-Men, X Factor, The Avengers, and possibly The Defenders[?].

The Beast is also a figure who appears in Christian millenial end times prophecy from the Book of Revelation. Some believe he is synonymous with the Antichrist, while others say the Beast is the Antichrist's independent ally. The Beast is associated with the number 666, the Number of the Beast. The magician Aleister Crowley bestowed this title upon himself as a nickname.
