* [[spoiler: The Red Death, a dragon the size of a very large hill, taking flight and ascending into the sky after Toothless and Hiccup. Having it emerge from the earth is terrifying enough, but seeing something that looks like the unholy spawn of Fenrir and Jörmungandr take to the air and disappear into the clouds left one awestruck. That's the point where the Vikings probably thought that [[{{Myth/NorseMythology}} Ragnarok has started and the world was about to break.]]]]

* InUniverse for Stoick, when Gobber informs him that Hiccup has a way with dragons. After watching the second film, guess who else had a way with the beasts...

* If things had gone differently in their first encounter, either Hiccup would have cut out Toothless's heart or Toothless would have burned Hiccup to a critter. This makes their respective acts of mercy and developing bond more meaningful.

* When the [[spoiler: Outcasts take over the Hooligan ship after the treasure is obtained]], they plan to put all of Berk into slavery. All except the Chief and his Heir; they are ''eaten''. [[spoiler:When Hiccup volunteers himself

[[spoiler:When Hiccup volunteers himself as the Heir, rather than let his father die alone, Alvin promises him that it will be over quickly.]]



* The AdultFear in how the Romans easily snatch Hiccup and Fishleg from the classroom, because they catch Gobber by surprise and everyone else is too stunned to stop them.



** Snotlout also sees Hiccup leaving with Camicazi, but says nothing because he hopes that wherever Hiccup goes he will die. Stoick realizes this in the morning and gives Snotlout corporal punishment.



* In a more realistic sense, as the epilogue lampshades, the idea of a culture where reading is forbidden, as is learning. Hiccup tries to write books, only for Stoick to confiscate them and claim no Haddock ever wrote books. (Hiccup later finds out that [[spoiler:his ancestor II did write books]].) In the library, however, there are enough books to last a person several lifetimes. Worse, we don't know ''why'' reading is forbidden [[spoiler:for several books, until the Wodensfang revealed that Grimbeard did it to spite the little dragon and ignore his warnings]]. To get it to open, Hiccup has to ask for his father to reopen the library.

** Also how in the cave he switches from "nice" to FauxAffablyEvil when they find a door [[spoiler: to Grimbeard's real treasure.]]

** Also how in the cave he switches from "nice" to FauxAffablyEvil when they find a door [[spoiler: to Grimbeard's real treasure. When Hiccup, injured with his right arm in a sling, tries to apply logic and point out that Grimbeard's trap will kill them all, Alvin presses the Stormblade into Hiccup's chest and threatens to kill him and Fishlegs, unless the door opens.]]
* The AloneWithThePsycho moment at the climax, when [[spoiler:Alvin tries to kill Hiccup on top of the treasure mounds. Even when Toothless finds a sword that Hiccup can wield, Hiccup nearly loses the battle.

* The Guardians of Tomorrow [[spoiler:killing Ug and his followers in a matter of minutes because they tried to present fake Lost Things. It's not specified what happens, but afterward the Guardians don't leave a trace.]]

* The Guardians of Tomorrow, and how they kill their victims. [[spoiler:They carry them up into the sky where the atmosphere thins, until their victims suffocate from the lack of oxygen.]]
* Shortly following the [[spoiler:AwesomeMomentOfCrowning, the Vikings go MassOhCrap when the witch points out that Hiccup still has to face Furious. And if Hiccup fails to make peace, then the humans and dragons will engage in an endless war.]]
** Stoick and Val face their last massive AdultFear: just as they found out their son was alive, they have to let him go into one-on-one combat alone. Val with her BrutalHonesty can only remind Hiccup he has to rescue himself, while Stoick confesses that he wants to go in Hiccup's place.
* You'd think that when the Wodensfang made his deal [[spoiler:Furious]] that [[spoiler: Hiccup would go EtTuBrute. [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming No.]] Hiccup understands that the Wodensfang was trying to save him, and that he needs to bring the Jewel to bargain with Furious. OhCrap ensues instead for Hiccup, because the Dragon Jewel he has is a fake.]]
* Just when [[spoiler:Hiccup manages to talk sense into Furious, by tossing the real Dragon Jewel away (which was hidden in the lobster claw necklace]], Alvin spoils it by [[spoiler:taking the Jewel and breaking the temporary ceasefire.]] The ensuing fight kills many humans and dragons in their respective RedShirt armies.


Added DiffLines:

* Hiccup in his first few scenes invokes AdultFear: Stoick pulls him out of passing dragonfire and yells at him for being outside during a raid. Then Hiccup disobeys those orders to test his dragon-trapper, which leads to a Monstrous Nightmare nearly burning him alive. As Stoick reveals, Hiccup does this on a ''regular basis''.
* Gobber points out a large AdultFear: Stoick won't always be around to protect Hiccup. His son is growing up, and always running into danger. Stopping him isn't possible. The best Stoick can do is prepare him for it.
* If things had gone differently in their first encounter, either Hiccup would have cut out Toothless's heart or Toothless would have burned Hiccup to a critter. This makes their respective acts of mercy and developing bond more meaningful.
