** There's also the Skrill, which happens to be the symbol of the Berserker Tribe, and is as dangerous as Toothless and completely AxCrazy. [[spoiler: Ends up subverted as well later in the series. While still aggressive and not trained, it does come to recognize Hiccup is not an enemy and leaves in peace.]]

** This actually becomes a regular thing in "Race to the Edge" as there are several times when the dragons clearly hit targets dead on but the scene cuts away before the smoke clears.



* KarmaHoudini: While the villains all suffer some comeuppance, some acts they get clean away with.
** Mildew gets away with both framing the dragons and poisoning them, mostly because [[WeNeedToGetProof he's careful to have plausible deniability]] or just destroys the evidence himself.
** Dagur the Deranged brutally murders not only Heather's [[YouKilledMyFather adoptive parents]] but also burns down her home village in the process. Despite avenging their deaths being a character goal, he never actually pays for it.



** [[RhetoricalQuestionBlunder Yes]], that is ''exactly'' what they do in "Gold Rush". That said they are still boats, so a giant hole in the side still does the job.



* LukeIAmYourFather: "Have Dragon, Will Travel" has this in regards to [[spoiler: Heather's heritage. The plot starts with Hiccup finding Stoick's seal on her horn... that was given to Heather by her ''biological'' father, and the show tries to set it up as if Heather is somehow ''Hiccup's'' sister. This is a RedHerring, as she is actually ''Dagur's'' sister and the daughter of Oswald the Agreeable.]]

* NoodleIncident:

to:

* NoodleIncident:NoodleIncident: Numerous, but among a couple of those mentioned in the show:



** Heather apparently has had a close experience with lava before.



** Averted hard with the Dragon's Eye - while the item itself is one of a kind, Hiccup and Fishlegs spend a lot of time recording notes from it between episodes (or wanting to during an episode but needing to move on). This pays off big time in "Buffalord Soldier" as it allows them to locate the home of the Buffalord dragon species.



** Later seasons actually run with this in-universe, with Snotlout referring to Fishlegs and Hiccup's geeking out as "Hiclegs" and even mentioning "[[OfficialCouple Hicstrid]]" once.



* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: After three seasons of ignoring her catty and often unnecessarily mean-spirited comments, "Edge of Disaster - Part One" has Ruffnut finally reaching her limit and calling Astrid out on how rude she is towards both her and her brother, as well as anyone that isn't Hiccup.

Added DiffLines:

** For ''Race To the Edge'', the increasing dragon proofing of equipment starting in "Have Dragon Will Travel" and finally culminating in [[spoiler:[[UpToEleven dragon proofed ships]] in "Gold Rush"]].


Added DiffLines:

** Viggo as well. Starve innocent women and children to get what he wants? That's just the price of business.

* SelfMadeOrphan: Implied. Dagur claims that his father Oswald the Agreeable "retired", later saying that he "had to be eliminated" so that he could become chief. Oswald is never seen or heard from ''once'' in the show.

Oswald is never seen or heard from ''once'' in the show. Ultimately subverted in season five and six when Dagur reveals that Oswald disappeared and has been actively searching for him.

** Hiccup and Fishlegs use the speedstinger's web-feet to confirm their theory on Dragon Evolution. The idea of evolution didn't even exist in the Viking era, let alone a hypothesis that could even be considered probable by superstitious people like Vikings.
** Dagur wears a set of Roman legionnaire armor.
** Trader Johan wears Arabian clothing and has mentioned Papa New Guinea.
** Ruffnut quotes in Spanish, despite not having encountered anyone from the region.
** The twins mimic detectives centuries before the practice was created.

** The Twins tend to be the most guilty of this, including but not limited two Ruffnut making quotes in Spanish, despite not having encountered anyone from the region.
** The twins mimic

** The [[Funny/DragonsRidersOfBerk crowner]] has to be the man with a hook on each hand.



** Most of the riders or their dragons have been captured at one point or another.



** "Maces and Talons": Vigo outwits Hiccup at every turn, stealing the Dragon Eye and unlocking it despite Hiccup's precautions.
** While it's not over yet, "Defenders of the Wing, Part I" has Viggo escaping with a new dragon and the Riders in a fight about to ensue.

Added DiffLines:

** The Auxiliary Riders in "Team Astrid", hitting [[spoiler: Dagur in the flanks and crippling his new armada.]]
** "Out of the Frying Pan" has the [[spoiler: Great Protector save Throk from dying in lava.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Gronckle Iron was at first a one off for "The Iron Gronckle", but come "Night of the Hunters" the formula is rediscovered and soon it becomes used quite widely by the Dragon Riders.


Added DiffLines:

** The Dragon Hunter's dragon-proofed bars turn out to not be quite as proofed as first thought... but it does require the combined firepower of at least a Gronckle, a Deadly Nadder, a Monstrous Nightmare, a Zippleback, and a Night Fury and will run them out of shots.


Added DiffLines:

** Both the Grimborn brothers have a talent for this.

* SchizoTech: Parasols made of metal and stone and, of all things, ''flamethrowers'', exist in a show that is supposed to be set between DarkAgeEurope to the HighMiddleAges. These might be a throwback to the book, since one of the villains made a steamship using dragons.
** Don't forget the [[spoiler:Diving bell]] from [[Dire straits]]
