** During the Skrill's second appearance, it's rescued from Dagur and set free. Its never mentioned or heard from again afterwards. Given that Dagur [[spoiler: undergoes a HeelFaceTurn, and later requests a dragon of his own, one would think that him succeeding in taming the formerly volatile Skrill would be a better indicator of his redemption. Nope, he instead gets a Gronckle, a comparably more common dragon. Though in Season 7, it's Sleuther who becomes his mount, who is, like Skrill, rather unique and hard to tame.]].

** The riders learn [[spoiler:Viggo is still alive]] with over a season of the series left to go. How many times do they interact with him after his return? Once, and it's only Hiccup who gets to do so.

** Spitelout gets a bit in "Turn and Burn," which explores his insecurity about Stoick's natural leadership abilities and constantly trying to prove himself, and he gets enough development to KnowWhenToFoldEm and have enough confidence to start over when his first choice to build an offshore storeroom has to be abandoned. It continues in "The Wings of War Part 2" as he saves Hiccup from a Singetail, then reveals he's become an expert on how to deal with the breed, and finally plays a key role in the battle to take back the Edge.

[[spoiler: He gets some more in the final two parts of ''Race To The Edge'', where he approves of Hiccup's decision to go save The King of Dragons despite what Berk's council ordered him to do, and is only member of A-Team to participate in final battle (wing-less Gustav notwithstanding), along with his son no less, with who he gets some heartwarming dialogue.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Even Hiccup and Astrid discuss in-universe how ridiculously fast Dagur and Mala got together, and even after getting engaged, Dagur still has NoSenseOfPersonalSpace around Hiccup and gets a scene where he passionately begs Hiccup to be in his wedding. So... is Dagur truly in love with Mala... or is he still in love with Hiccup but has given up now that Hiccup's gotten engaged, and his unnatural SickeninglySweethearts routine with Mala is just him imitating the way he thinks men and women act when they're in love?

** [[spoiler: By murdering merchants and sacking their ships Johann crossed it offscreen possibly long before the series even started.]]

* OneTrueThreesome: Hiccup and Astrid are the canon OfficialCouple as well as easily the biggest FanPreferredCouple, so its easy to see that no one is getting in the way of that. So when Heather formed a deep bond with both of them, fans were quick to just ship all three together rather than split Hiccstrid.

** The series finale actually seems to encourage one, as Ruffnut responds to Snotlout and Fishlegs fighting over her with "There's plenty of this to go around!"

** You can really feel the last few episodes straining to put all the pieces in place to allow for a smooth transition into the second film, with Snotlput and Fishlegs suddenly fighting over Ruffnut out of nowhere and [[spoiler:the entire climactic battle being contrived around Hiccup never actually seeing the Bewildebeast so his not recognizing it in the film will still make sense.]]

* HoYay: [[HoYay/DragonsRidersOfBerk See here.]]



* NonIndicativeName: "Race To The Edge." There's no urgent need to get to the "Edge," and the "Edge" refers to the Dragon Riders' new home base, the Dragon's Edge, which they spend most of the series based out of. Aside from a few competitions or episodes where they have to stop raiders, there's no urgent, overwhelming need to get there as fast as possible.
** While the plot of the Season 7 finale "Sins of the Past" revolves heavily around the past character Oswald, and there are plenty of people committing sins, the plot has nothing at all to do with anyone's past sins -- there are no sins of the past in "Sins of the Past."



* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: The Season 6 finale teases the return of the Outcasts, not seen since Season 2, but they still don't actually appear. Luckily, this is rectified in the next season.
