* ForWantOfANail: A more significant change in canon occurs in ''Ghosts'' when Stoick learns of the return of Drago Bludvist, as here [[spoiler:Stoick stops Hiccup leaving Berk and basically puts him on house arrest to stop him looking for Drago]].



* InSpiteOfANail: Regardless of Hiccup and Astrid's improved relationship, [[spoiler:Hiccup still loses a leg after defeating the Red Death]], and life in Berk five years later (as seen in ''Ghosts'') is basically the same as it was at the beginning of the second film.

* LoveRevelationEpiphany: A partial example occurs in chapter 14; [[spoiler:when Hiccup states his belief that Astrid has never wanted to be betrothed to him, Astrid realises that while she's never liked the implications of marriage and isn't ready for it yet, Hiccup is the only person her age in the village she can see herself marrying, as he would never try and make her something she's not and she actually does find him attractive]].

* PerfectlyArrangedMarriage: While Astrid was upset when she found out that her parents set her up with Hiccup behind her back, they become friends rather quickly when her mother asks her to get to know him, [[spoiler:with Astrid soon recognising that Hiccup is the only person in the village she would actually ''want'' to marry]].

Added DiffLines:

* NeverMyFault: [[spoiler:Mildew completely fails at his own 'attempt' to train a dragon, but acts as though the Nadder was the reason rather than acknowledging that he wasn't obeying Astrid's instructions]].

* EyeScream: [[spoiler:During the final battle with the Red Death, the new dragon riders manage to blind most of its eyes from a combination of fire and Stormfly's spikes]].

Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: Even after spending some time with Toothless and tentatively training the Nadder, Astrid finds it hard to shake off years of belief that ''all'' dragons are bad, wondering out loud if these two are just the exception rather than the rule.



to:

* TookALevelInBadass: Thanks to actively training with Astrid before dragon training, Hiccup is able to hold his own in a fight to such an extent that he actually ''does'' manage to douse the Zippleback's sparking head during that lesson, even if he still 'defeats' the Zippleback using the eel and other techniques devised from witnessing Toothless.

Added DiffLines:

* InternalReveal: Chapter 14 has two, as [[spoiler:Astrid learns about Toothless and Hiccup learns that his feelings for Astrid may not be completely unrequited]].

Added DiffLines:

* ActuallyAGoodIdea: Astrid and Hiccup make a deal: Hiccup stops his inventing and in return she will take the time to train him how to use a weapon. Later on, Hiccup gets the idea of creating a fire-prevention system that would lower the amount of work the fire brigade would have to do to put out fires during dragon raids. Rather then getting on his case about their deal, Astrid makes an exception with this idea, citing that it actually is a good one.


* AcquiredSituationalNarcissism: PlayedForDrama. [[TakingAdvantageOfGenerosity After getting a taste of praise for his ingenuity with the success of the fire prevention system, Hiccup ends up inventing behind Astrid's back and constructs the Mangler.]] Not only does this violate the deal he had made with Astrid, but it ends with Hiccup's reputation spiraling right back down to square one with the unfortunate collateral damage caused by the Monstrous Nightmare he inadvertently attracts.

* DisappointedInYou: After the disastrous demonstration with Mangler, Hiccup is able to tune out the jeering and mockery of his peers. The only thing that actually stings is the disappointed look on Astrid's face, fully aware that he violated his deal with her by building behind her back.

* MaliciousMisnaming: Due to recurring failures in his inventions and the messes they made, Hiccup has been given the demeaning [[TheMagnificent title]] of "Hiccup the Useless." This stings especially since the village took the time to give him this title despite such things are usually saved till adulthood.
