** When Heather is first introduced, there is a signal horn strapped to her belt. It is not significant until much later when it is discovered that this particular horn was [[spoiler: a gift from Stoick to Oswald's newborn daughter, whom he later gave up for adoption. This also reveals that Dagur is Heather's brother.]]

* LikeBrotherAndSister: Hiccup and Heather, with Hiccup being just about the only one of the Riders who doesn't explicitly declare interest in her - or in Astrid's case, have a significant amount of LesYay and a RomanticTwoGirlFriendship with her. They're also arguably the two most accomplished riders in the series and share unusual green eyes, leading to [[spoiler: the show implying that they're siblings, a RedHerring for the ultimate reveal that she's Dagur's sister.]]

* CallForward: Several in "Race to the Edge," since it's a midquel between the two films. Noticeable examples include [[spoiler: finding out how Stoick met his new dragon Skullcrusher, seeing the first prototype of the flight suit Hiccup is just perfecting the use of in the second film, and the occasional bit of dialogue that nods to future events.]]

* NotSoDifferent: Hiccup and Snotlout, both being the sons of proud Viking families with legacies they desperately want to live up to and legendary fathers, both riding very powerful dragons and both being [[PintsizedPowerHouse surprisingly strong for their size.]] This is intriguingly illustrated in ''Tone Death'', when both choose very similar tunes, classical military marches, for their songs.



** Taken further in "Twinsanity" when a visiting teenage chief almost beheads Belch.

** There are quite a few identical Outcast mooks, also.
* OpenHeartDentistry: [[spoiler:Gobber, a blacksmith by trade]], is entrusted with the care of a dragon with a very significant hole in its wing and Fishlegs goes to him to tend to Meatlug after ingesting too many rocks. [[JustifiedTrope Well,]] the series ''is'' supposed to be set in DarkAgeEurope.

Moreover, aside from Hiccup, Gobber is probably the most knowledgeable about dragons - and he certainly knows more tricks about dragon anatomy than Hiccup does.

** In "Animal House", as Mulch walk in to the Great Hall with just two yak, Mulch says that they (the yak) were the only two they could find and then pipes up that they can start breeding a new herd with the two they have. Then, Gobber casually strolls in and says that Mulch may want to check again.

** In "Race to Fireworm Island", the twins... ''milk'' a Fireworm dragon off screen. And just in case the joke wasn't obvious, Hiccup confirms that Fireworm dragons do not lactate.

* DragonsAreDivine: In Season 3, it is revealed that there is a [[GratuitousNinja ninja]]-like tribe called [[Characters/HowToTrainYourDragonFilmsDefendersOfTheWing the Defenders of the Wing]]. Like Berk they do not see Dragons as mindless animals, but they take it a step further and practically worship them. They do so [[spoiler:out of respect for the Great Protector, an Eruptodon that eats the lava from their local volcano, keeping their village safe]]. Because of this, they tend to hold a strong animosity to anyone they would perceive as any kind of threat to dragons, especially Hiccup and the riders, seeing dragon riding as a form of "enslavement".

* BeastlyBloodsports: "Triple Stryke" reveals dragon fighting (which is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin) is one of the many uses the dragon hunters use their captives for. The heroes are no more forgiving of the people who pay to watch than they are of the hunters who stage the fights.

* PowderKegCrowd: The people of Berk seem to be very mercurial in public opinion, especially when it comes to the topic of dragons. They spent countless generations [[spoiler:devoting themselves to killing dragons, even to the point of labeling nearly every dragon in their manual as "extremely dangerous. Kill on sight."]] Then, after Hiccup and Toothless [[spoiler:kill the Red Death]], they are all more than willing to allow dragons into their homes with open arms to the point of [[spoiler:losing their holiday spirit when they all leave shortly before Snoggletog]]. Later, Mildew, [[spoiler:who has been established to be the most disliked member of the tribe]], was able to rile them into a frenzy against dragons several times should anything remotely bad happen, only for Hiccup and the group to [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor win them over almost just as easily]].

* ShamingTheMob: When Hiccup proved to the village that [[spoiler:Toothless was not the reason why lightning struck the village]], the villagers all showered them with treats and gifts, hoping there's no hard feelings.
--> '''Hiccup:''' No matter how much things change around here Vikings are still Vikings. They're not afraid to admit when they're wrong. And when they do, watch out! Cause you'll be up to your ears in pie and smoked fish.


Added DiffLines:

* SimplemindedWisdom: Stoick explains that when vikings don't agree on something, they usually settle it three different ways. Option 1: [[spoiler:[[AnAxeToGrind Give them both axes and let them fight it out]]]]. Option 2: [[spoiler:Give them both maces and let them fight it out]]. Option 3: [[spoiler:[[RivalsTeamUp Trick them into working together]]]]. Given that Astrid recognized Hiccup's ploy as the third, it can best be assumed that ''all'' Hooligans teach their children this lesson.
