* Stoik gives Hiccup his helmet and tells him it came from his mother's breastplate. Yet in all the trailers for the second movie, [[spoiler: we see his mother and she's far too small and thin to have worn armor that large.]]

** I imagine that there was a hillarious mix-up when they first made her breastplate, so it was made ''way'' too big. She never wore it, but it was still "hers".
*** I can just see it now, the smith talking to a besoted and starry eyed Stoic who, in a fit of distraction, accidently gives his measurments rather than his wife's.

Added DiffLines:

** Hiccup wasn't showing Toothless it was safe; Toothless had already eaten it then apparently decided to share (maybe he thought Hiccup was starving because he's so much thinner than the other Vikings?). Hiccup probably didn't object to the fact the fish hadn't been cooked as much as to the fact that ''Toothless had [[{{Squick}} eaten it and then spat it out]]''. I don't think even real Vikings would be too keen on [[NauseaFuel eating anything that had been in someone's mouth]].

** Given that the characters wear horned helmets and don't call their Christmas "Yule", this is but one of their [[TheThemeParkVersion Theme Park Viking]] qualities.

** It's pretty clear in retrospect that Toothless ''could'' have killed dozens of Vikings during that raid if he'd aimed differently, so possibly Night Furys are naturally disinclined to kill people unless they're defending themselves. It could be that a Night Fury once hit a settlement six times, then flew over a seventh but aborted its attack when it saw that another strike would've killed its targets. The Vikings just drew the wrong conclusion about why it didn't blast them again.

* Why was Hiccup so very reluctant to eat a bite of the raw fish to show Toothless it was safe? Gravlax (pickled and salted raw fish) is a traditional Norse appetizer, so at most Hiccup should have thought it needed salt and vinegar.

** As HornyVikings explains it, "... [[StockCostumeTraits and the horned helmets]] [[TheCoconutEffect that they never actually wore]] [[HistoryMarchesOn except for ceremonial occasions]]." StockCostumeTraits and TheCoconutEffect is in full effect.

** Also, Toothless probably wasn't trying to kill the Terror, just scare it off. If Toothless wanted it dead he would of used a bigger bolt and just flash-fried the little guy.

* Over the course of the movie Fishlegs makes several statistical phrases about the dragons and their abilities that sound somewhat like what you would hear from the popular game DungeonsAndDragons. Were they trying to go for a ItWillNeverCatchOn plot where Fishlegs will make a reference to what it would be like if they made a game about fighting dragons and exploring dungeons and no one ends up paying him any mind? That certainly has potential for quite a bit of humor in the sequel.

*** Yeah but those stats in the Dragon Manual we see Hiccup read were written in another language, it wouldn't exactly be easy for a guy like myself who only knows English to realize that Fishlegs was quoting from the book. Well anyway thanks for clearing things up, I was honestly hoping Fishlegs being a nerd was making a reference to DungeonsAndDragons. Though I guess it would be kind of strange for that idea to come almost a thousand years early when board games weren't even in existence.

** It's a joke that works on two levels - on the surface, Fishlegs is quoting stats from the Dragon Manual. But to the viewers, it's clear that he's WrongGenreSavvy and thinks he's in DungeonsAndDragons.
