Handicapped Badass: He might be missing an arm and a leg, but that doesn't make him one bit less interested in slaying dragons.
Heroic BSOD: Gobber realized that he has not been much help with Hiccup and his problems, and he also realized he has not been much help to Mérida either.

Princess Mérida O'DunBroch
Action Girl: Although she was raised as a princess, Merida is just as good a fighter as many of the Viking teenagers in Berk.
Badass: Merida is not only a great shot with a bow, but she also faces down Mor'du, stands up to Astrid a number of times, and takes part in dragon fighting lessons. Even in Berk, she stands out as a badass.
Brave Scot: It takes a lot of bravery to shoot arrows at Mor'du, but Merida never hesitates to do so.
Cool Big Sis: Her brothers make it clear they want her to stay in the Highlands with them.
Daddy's Girl: She gets along better with Fergus than Elinor because she's more fond of adventure than her role as a princess.
Fiery Redhead: Headstrong and passionate, Merida's personality is reflected by her wild red hair.
Hot-Blooded: She prefers adventuring in the woods to going about her royal duties, and she's definitely not someone you want to pick a fight with.
Like Father, Like Daughter: Although Merida clearly has inherited her mother's stubbornness and pride, Merida is very much a chip off the old block when it comes to her love of fighting, weapons, and woods exploration.
Outdoorsy Gal: Merida spends a lot of her free time in Berk by exploring the woods with Angus.
