* KickTheDog:
** Snotlout until Book 9 makes Hiccup his puppy to kick, by any means necessary. Highlights include setting up a fatal sword duel, taunting Hiccup about Toothless not finding any treasure, and mocking Hiccup for losing Toothless to the Romans.
** Grimbeard out of spite towards [[spoiler:the Wodensfang]] decided to [[spoiler:turn the Dragonmark into a Slavemark and enslave the dragons.]] He also forbids Dragonese to be spoken and mandates that the library be permanently closed. On top of that, he steals away [[spoiler:his runt baby Hiccup II from his wife while she's sleeping, leaves him on the hillside and lets her go on a fatal trip to try and find the baby. It's hard to feel sympathy when he realizes how far he's gone after killing Hiccup II when the latter is an adult.]]
** Grimbeard's heir Thugheart didn't have to [[spoiler:frame his brother Hiccup II for rebellion. Thugheart was set to inherit Grimbeard's kingdom and legacy, including the Dragon Jewel. He just did it out of jealousy that Hiccup II was the problematic favorite child. Then after Grimbeard realizes too late that he killed his innocent child, Thugheart leads a ''real'' rebellion that ends up wiping out most of the Vikings on Tomorrow.]]



** It apparently is InTheBlood for Haddocks: Grimbeard the Ghastly [[spoiler: enslaved dragons and humans, turned the Dragonmark into the Slavemark and thus corrupted a symbol of his ancestor's pride]]. As the Wodensfang tells it, "the gods" then punished Grimbeard by [[spoiler: giving him a runt son, Hiccup II, that ended up raised by dragons and became his favorite child]].

As the Wodensfang tells it, "the gods" then punished Grimbeard by [[spoiler: giving him a runt son, Hiccup II, that ended up raised by dragons and became his favorite child]]. To add to the karma further, [[spoiler:Grimbeard dooms his kingdom and his legacy by believing his other son Thugheart that Hiccup II will raise a dragon rebellion. This leads to him stabbing Hiccup II, who dies in his arms an innocent man. When Thugheart does his ''real'' rebellion, Grimbeard manages to suppress it but realizes his kingdom is torn apart and he has tainted the Haddock legacy.]]
