* {{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!

* GrowingTheBeard: Widely considered the point where Dreamworks did this, and the moment when people started taking them more seriously than they had in previous years.



* SpiritualLicensee: Some people consider Hiccup to be the best depiction of Franchise/SpiderMan every put to film.
** Test Drive, strangely enough. There's just so much adrenaline and emotion that it gets kind of overwhelming.



* WinTheCrowd: Before this film, Dreamworks animated movies were typically thought of as a very distant third behind Pixar and Disney, overloaded with pop culture references and lowbrow gags. This is where it really started to be considered as a worthy contender next to those two.

*BaseBreaker: Your mileage will definitely vary on whether or not you think Stoick the Vast is an [[AbusiveParents Abusive Father]].

!!YMMV for the DVD short film ''Legend of the Boneknapper Dragon'':
* NightmareFuel: The Boneknapper Dragon is a huge dragon that wears stolen bones like a giant flying skeleton, and will stop at nothing to find the perfect bone for its macabre coat of armor. Also, without a certain bone on its armor, it can sneak up on unwary Vikings since it can't roar.
* UglyCute: The Boneknapper dragon doesn't hesitate to warm up to Gobber and even allows him to give it a chin scratch when he gives it back the bone it needed to complete its armor and allow itself to roar.

* BrokenAesop: The whole movie is about getting vikings to stop killing dragons. What's the solution? Kill a giant dragon that was just fending for itself.
** Although it could be an alternative Aesop about not taking a situation at face value, and how unconventional thinking could solve centuries old problems.

* TearJerker:
** [[spoiler: When Hiccup wakes up and discovers that he's lost his left leg in the battle; it's even more jarring if you didn't hear Gobber imply it earlier. Not to mention, the part Hiccup tries to walk using his artificial leg and immediately stumbles ''is like an emotional kick to the groin''.]]
** The scene where [[spoiler: Stoick disowns Hiccup. Hiccup pleads for him to listen for once in his life, is thrown back and told [[IHaveNoSon "You're not my son"]]. Hiccup's face as he watches his father leave really helped the tears flow, as does Stoick's expression after the door closes behind him.]]
** [[spoiler: Stoick mourning over his son's apparent demise in the aftermath of the fight with the Red Death. Granted, we all knew Toothless saved him somehow, but the sheer despair and sorrow in Stoick's voice as he grieves over the loss of his only son feels like a punch to the gut.]]

** In Book Three, Hiccup while a Roman prisoner waits for a week for his father to come rescue him because as far as he can see escape is hopeless and he hopes his father loves him enough to find him. [[spoiler: Stoick arrives with the Bog Burglars chasing him, right after Hiccup has rescued himself, Fishlegs, Toothless and Camicazi.]] In a Book Twelve flashback, long before he met Toothless, Hiccup wrote a letter to his mother while a prisoner in the Murderous Mountains, and she wrote, "You are a hero. [[NoSympathy Rescue yourself]]."

*** There's also the fact that Hiccup just lets 15 years of abuse from his tribe slide off without any resentment towards them.
