* HarsherInHinsight: During Hiccup's sarcastic, imitation of Stoick he complains that his father always wanted "An extra large boy with beefy arms, extra guts and glory on the side. This here -- This is a talking fishbone". It seems hilarious at first, until you watch one episode in TV series and then near the end of the sequel. First, in the ''Riders of Berk'' episode, "Portrait of Hiccup as a Buff Young Man", Stoick thinks the painting of his son as bigger and buffer than he is ''better'' than how Hiccup really looks sadly confirms Hiccup's rant which just crushes Hiccup who's already a ''major'' WellDoneSonGuy; Secondly, the sequel reveals that Hiccup was born prematurely and it looked like he wasn't going to survive.

* AwesomeMusic:
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUWBm0Z-Xww Test Drive]]". Chills every time. If there was ever a piece written about the thrill of ''flying,'' it's Test Drive.
** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tY1dpKYUcxc The Cove]]", which plays during Hiccup and Astrid's scene at [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the cove]] near their village, which gradually becomes a soft, romantic theme.
** Really, the whole soundtrack by John Powell can count here. It helps that key scenes were set to highlight the music in parts like "Forbidden Friendship," "Romantic Flight," and "Where's Hiccup" rather than with dialogue, often to great effect.
** And for further proof of its epicness, NBC Sports used "Test Drive" for its recap of Rory [=McIlroy=]'s historic 2011 U.S. Open run (setting the lowest score in the major's 100+-year history) during its coverage of the golf event.
** The [[AlternativeForeignThemeSong Japanese theme song]] isn't half bad either! Give it a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02hAAqAEwwY listen!]]



* {{Narm}}: [[InvertedTrope Completely inverted]] -- according to the dvd commentary, the scene where Astrid interrogates Hiccup about his LevelGrinding before finding Toothless was supposed to be funny. The writers found the scene hilarious, but test audiences found Astrid showing up a few feet from where the dragon was hidden, about to discover Hiccup's secret, agonizingly suspenseful (which, the writers admit, was a good thing).

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped:
** Violence isn't always the best solution, parents don't always know what's best for their kids, and just because something is a tradition does not mean that it is necessarily right.
** From the second movie, peace isn't always possible and some minds simply cannot be changed.

* HypeBacklash: While universally acclaimed back when it was recently released, there have been more people on the internet speaking out and criticizing the film in recent years.

** [[spoiler: While the Red Death didn't get the chance to wipe the Vikings out, we see many of them are very close to the ships as it sets them fire, which should have killed a number of them, but all we see are some falling into the water.]]

** Mixes with a bit of BookEnds as well [[spoiler: as Hiccup first helped Toothless deal with his missing tail fin, and now Toothless returns the favor by helping Hiccup learn to walk with his artificial foot]]. Considering that [[spoiler: he almost died, losing a foot probably isn't that big of a deal to him at the moment.]]
** The Tale of the Boneknapper which chronologically takes place after the events of the movie showcase Hiccup walking and running just fine on his [[spoiler: prosthetic leg]] which means that he has largely adapted to his injuries.

* {{EarWorm}}: Jonsi' Sticks and Stones that plays at the end of the film is a song that won't be leaving your head anytime soon - it's addictive!
* EnsembleDarkHorse: Ruffnut. Just ask [[Website/FourChan /co/]]!
