* AmbiguousDisorder: Hiccup has no interest in socializing and avoids anyone who isn't family, and even then he only likes being around Astrid and Zephyr. When multiple people try to strike up a conversation with him [[spoiler:after Astrid [[ShamingTheMob shames everyone for mistreating him]]]], he nearly has a panic attack and is unable to do anything for the rest of the day, all signs pointing to Hiccup having some form of Social Anxiety Disorder.


* AdaptationalNiceGuy: Mildew in canon was a HateSink who was so unlikable, his house was built outside of the village because nobody could stand him, and he later selling out Hiccup to the Outcasts. Here, when Jerrik implies that Hiccup and Zephyr's death was a net-gain for the village, Mildew pitches in when villagers start responding with kind words, saying how Hiccup volunteered to help when Fungus when he was stuck in the well and Zephyr would keep him company.

* FlashbackNightmare: [[spoiler:Toothless has one about how he lost his parents and siblings to Grimmel when he was a small hatchling after he encounters Grimmel a second time and is forced to abandon his mate and one of his hatchlings in order to get the other two to safety.]]

* BerserkButton: While Hiccup has given up defending himself from Berk's mockery and shaming, he will '''not''' tolerate it when it is directed towards Astrid or [[PapaWolf Zephyr]]. Snotlout learned this the hard way, getting punched in the face when he implied that the newborn Zephyr would be a "dud" like him.



* ForWantOfANail: Unlike in canon, Hiccup does not see Toothless after shooting him down and freeing him for years. Because of this, Hiccup never learns how to tame dragons, he never learns how to pacify dragons in the ring and he does not become the one to kill the Monstrous Nightmare.

* EveryoneHasStandards: When everyone thinks they both died in a raid, Jerrik tactlessly remarks that mourning them isn't worth it and that Astrid's pregnancy secures an heir. While most of the village thought that Hiccup was a poor viking and Zephyr took after him more so then they had liked (even though she's ''only three-years old''), the look on everyone's faces makes it clear that his words are beyond appropriate. When Astrid responds with UnstoppableRage, no one even thinks to stop her, Stoick stopping after she got a few hits in with a plank of wood first. When Jerrik tries to justify his words, various other villagers contradict him with kind words about them.

Added DiffLines:

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Astrid didn't do anything directly, but she is disturbed when she finds one of Hiccup's notebooks and reads about how he thinks that nobody wants him for anything more than fathering the next heir, rather than appreciating him as a person.


Added DiffLines:

* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: Astrid encourages Hiccup to recognise that he has value and other people see him as important by mentioning the way other people praised his work when they thought he might be dead after an earlier raid.

Added DiffLines:

* AdultFear: The Night Fury [[spoiler:had to leave his mate and one of his children in captivity to get himself and his other two children to safety]].

Added DiffLines:

* HappinessInSlavery: 'Happiness' may be an overstatement, but the Night Fury's thoughts reflect that he succumbed to the Red Death's control because it was easier to feel some sense of belonging after the loss of the rest of his family.


Added DiffLines:

* MoralityChain: Just meeting Hiccup disrupted the Queen's hold on the Night Fury, so he remained with the pack out of choice rather than her control.


Added DiffLines:

* TokenGoodTeammate: Eret is shown to be this in a scene looking at the dragon trappers, as he only captures the dragons but makes it clear that he won't tolerate abusing them, [[spoiler:leading to him forming a discreet alliance with Valka to undermine Grimmel's own efforts]].


* DaddysGirl: While both her her parents are GoodParents, Zephyr is particularly close to her father.

* AdaptationRelationshipOverhaul: In-canon, Hiccup and Astrid's relationship was never really established until she discovered Toothless. Here, they were friends as children before "[their] interest took [them] in different directions". While their canon counterparts eventually MarryForLove at the end of the third film in their twenties, here it was [[AltarDiplomacy arranged for them by their parents]], [[MarriageBeforeRomance their feelings developing at some point after the ceremony]].

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Stoick and Gobber constantly told Hiccup that he should stop being like himself and start being less talkative and in the way. What results is Hiccup becoming reclusive, giving up on his hobbies and doing nothing but his scheduled task. This does not go unnoticed by Gobber and Stoick, and it isn't until years laters [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone does it really hit Stoick just how badly he hurt his son]].
