* ContinuityNod: The dragons call Stoic "The Great Head Ripper." In the first film, Hiccup mentioned that it was said that as a child, Stoic once popped the head off of a Nightmare, backing this up.

* NameFromAnotherSpecies: Hiccup gets called "Fishbone" by Toothless, and all of the dragon training students get nicknames from the dragons fighting them. After some time, Toothless recognizes his name from Hiccup (which to him sounds like "ember-hiss, footstep"), and is shocked to realize that humans grasp the concept of naming things.

Added DiffLines:

* RightForTheWrongReasons: Remember that cute scene in the film where Hiccup taught Toothless how to (sorta) draw? Well, that scene was an equally important character bonding moment for Toothless: from his perspective, that was how he taught Hiccup how to dance.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The dragon-grass seems to be a mixture of catnip and alcohol, leaving dragons with hangovers once it wears off.



* ReligiousBruiser: Since they're all [[PintsizedPowerhouse Pintsized Powerhouses]], all of the Terrible Terrors qualify. Apparently they have a religion of their own, prayer, and some form of gods (or at least psychopomps). Toothless references their afterlife, so it's possible that dragons of other species share the same beliefs, but the Terrible Terrors reference religion the most (even the InsufferableGenius in Dragon Training [[OhMyGods references icons of their religion when he/she curses.)]]

* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Terrible Terrors are prone to this, especially in their internal monologues. They also tend to get an OverlyLongName.

Beware of ViewerGenderConfusion because this is written before ''Riders of Berk'' is released.

* InsufferableGenius: The Terrible Terror in the arena comes off as this. More of the later from his perspective, and the former from the other dragons.


Added DiffLines:

* NoOneGetsLeftBehind: The Terrible Terror/Venom-Hisser in the kill arena says he could escape at any time he's let out, but stays behind to try and help the other dragons escape.

!!Tropes Featured in ''The Dragon Journals:''
* BreadEggsMilkSquick: In the early chapters, Toothless casually wonders if he can eat Hiccup if pressed.
* EldritchAbomination: Dragons see the striped eels at this, refusing to go anywhere near them and expressing astonishment that the humans can touch them at all.
* FantasticRacism: Dragons of one species sometimes clash with another. Toothless is known for being particularly mean to Terrible Terrors.
* FirstPersonPeripheralNarrator: The dragons collectively become this, with Hiccup's progress seen from their points of view, and with all their various opinions on him.
* HumansThroughAlienEyes: Dragons have their own names for each other and the various stuff associated with "Mans." Weapons are universally referred to as "teeth", and they don't understand the concept of making things. Toothless assumes Hiccup is somehow growing all the new "tails" he needs for his harness, and that Hiccup sheds skin to change clothes.
** HumansAreCthulhu: Toothless freaks out when he sees Hiccup taking off his shoes. Then, he dismisses it as just another weird thing humans do.
* KillerRabbit: The Terrible Terrors are the smallest species of dragon, but very quick to think up multiple death threats when Toothless won't let them near Hiccup.
* IronicNickname: Because of his habit of throwing his weapons aside before engaging them, the dragons in the Kill Ring start referring to Hiccup as "Toothless."
* TheMessiah: Hiccup's kindness is even more emphasized in this story. Toothless actually fears that other dragons will steal Hiccup because he gives so much food away.
* PerspectiveFlip: The whole point of the story, particularly the chapters from Toothless' perspective.
* SamusIsAGirl: The Nadder in the kill ring has particular respect for Astrid's fighting talents and is constantly warning the other dragons about "Yellow-Head". The reveal that she's female causes him some embarrassment.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Terrible Terrors are prone to this, especially in their internal monologues. They also tend to get an OverlyLongName.
* UnusualEuphemism: The Terrible Terrors "sing the names" of whatever they kill.
* {{Xenofiction}}
