    Season 1 
How to Start a Dragon Academy
  • The beginning of the first episode features the main characters competing by having their dragons do tricks. When it comes to Fishlegs’ turn, he just has Meatlug hover in a circle.
    Fishlegs: Yes! New personal best!
    • Ruffnut and Tuffnut fighting over who gets to go next only for Hiccup to point out, "Guys, same dragon."
    • And Hookfang's Establishing Character Moment, disobeying Snotlout in order to take a nosedive into the ocean, with Snot screaming the entire time.
  • This exchange between Stoick and Gobber:
    Stoick: We could put up signs!
    Gobber: Signs? For dragons?
    Stoick: No! For the people!
    Gobber: Signs? For Vikings?! We’re not big readers, Stoick.
    Stoick: [Sighs exasperatedly] Then we’ll build a huge net and build it around the plaza!
    Gobber: Nets?! You do know they breathe fire?
  • This exchange as everyone is lamenting having to send their dragons away.
    Fishlegs: Every night before I went to sleep, Meatlug would lick my feet.
    Everyone: O_o
    Fishlegs: [anguished] Who’s going to do that NOW?!
    Ruffnut: I volunteer Tuffnut!
    Tuffnut: [depressed] Whatever...what time should I be there?
  • Hiccup’s first attempt to keep the dragons under control. Disaster Dominoes is too organized a metaphor for the hilarity that ensues.
    Hiccup: Oh, everything hurts. (pulls off prosthetic leg) Even this.
    Astrid: (from downstairs) Hiccup?
    Hiccup: Astrid? (Puts his leg back on and starts brushing himself off) Perfect. I don't look too beat up, do I?
    (Toothless gives a look best described as "Uh...not really?")
    Hiccup: Oh, great. Dragon pity.
  • Take a good look at Meatlug just before she’s asked to, uh, fertilize Mildew’s garden. Apparently, nervous dragons can get constipated, too!
  • Snotlout’s attempt at training his dragon, Hookfang.
    Snotlout: DROP THAT, RIGHT NOW! YOU HEAR ME?! [Hookfang grabs Snotlout with his mouth] See? He dropped it.
    • Later:
    Snotlout: (still in Hookfang’s mouth) Uh, can someone do that chin-scratching thing? Hello? (nervous) You guys still there?

Viking For Hire

  • Gobber tries his hand at being diplomatic. Among his duties are: settling a dispute over a stolen sheep, fixing a boat, and giving his blessing to a newborn baby girl. Being the muscle-bound idiot he is who only knew dragon-slaying, Gobber settles the sheep dispute by giving the two angry farmers weapons of war (which the two farmers use to pummel each other offscreen), fix the boat with iron (which, predictably, sinks as it hits water), and, disgusted by the baby, which is implied to be absolutely hideous, changes its name from "Hildegard" to "Magnus", because he "thought it looked like a ‘Magnus’". The best part? It turns out, after Stoick finds out the damage Gobber caused, he’s even agreed that the female baby looks like a Magnus!
    Stoick: But try telling that to her parents!
  • This exchange:
    Stoick: Really? Y-you can speak to people with tact and sensitivity?
    Gobber: Oh! I thought thatnote  meant clubbing people on the head and asking questions later. But I can give your thing a shot.
  • Stoick talks about his day:
    Stoick: I was all over the island today. I married the Svenson girl to the Odegard boy at dawn, then to the fields where some kids were tipping over yaks, then back to the newlyweds to settle a domestic dispute, I guess THAT honeymoon’s over... Sometimes I wish there were two o’ me.
    Stoick: Is that another crack about my weight?!
  • Gobber’s song when he’s happy.
    "I’ve got my axe and I’ve got my mace, and I love my wife with the ugly face..."
    • It pops up multiple times in the series, to boot.
  • Hiccup sees Ruffnut kicking Tuffnut sharply and repeatedly in the posterior.
    Hiccup: Do you guys always have to fight?
    Tuffnut: It’s okay. I asked her to to that. I was just trying to get the feeling back.
    Ruffnut: [turning around and bending over] You gonna return the favor or what?

Animal House

  • Apparently Bucket occasionally needs reminding which animals give what.
  • Bucket and Mulch discussing the last big blizzard to hit Berk.
    Bucket: It took us a week just to dig Mildew out.
    Mulch: And the rest of our lives to wonder why we bothered...
    • Bucket can predict storms by how tight his bucket hat gets. The tighter the bucket, the worse the storm. When Stoick goes to Gothi for a second opinion, her (nonverbal) response is "What do you think?", while preparing her hut for the storm. When asked how she knew, she replies that she heard Bucket’s screaming from her house.
  • Most every scene displaying the sheer stupidity of the sheep. Yep, they’re played absolutely to type. Special bonus: one of them turns out to be Mildew’s current "wife". No wonder he hates dragons!
  • Pretty much anything that has to do with the gang trying to get the farm animals to stop fearing the dragons, especially when one of the dragons gets spooked by an eel and accidentally sends one of the sheep flying across the academy.
  • Tuffnut insults Snotlout, who grabs him and tries to punch him. But first he has to ask:
    Snotlout: You’re the guy, right?
    Tuffnut: (feminine voice) No?
  • Hiccup about Berk’s seasons:
    Hiccup: But it’s too early for a storm, it’s still Winter. Devastating Winter isn’t due for another month!
    • Made even better by the fact that he seems to be completely serious in saying it.
  • Gobber asking if he looks like a yak, while all on all fours next to a yak. Tuffnut nods in agreement.
  • Tuffnut’s face being so cold he can no longer feel pain, and demonstrating it by slapping himself. Ruffnut complains that this takes all the fun out of it.

In Dragons We Trust

  • When Hookfang failed to catch Snotlout right after he jumped off. It’s even more funny that it was one of the other dragons, instead of a human, that had to inform Hookfang that their rider was falling to their death.
  • Stoick confronts Hiccup about the hole their training exercise put in Mildew's roof by slapping a broken shingle on their kitchen table.
    Hiccup: Shingle again? Didn't we have roofing material for dinner last night?
    (Stoick stares, unamused)
  • Tuffnut on thinking: "I gave up thinking. Never been happier."
  • Hiccup is looking at the portraits on Mildew’s wall: "Wife...wife...wife.... hmm." The last one, of course, is Fungus... his sheep.
    Hiccup: Well, Mildew definitely has a type... [shudders]
  • We also have this gem:
    Tuffnut: What’s fun about that?
    Astrid: It’s not supposed to be fun. It’s a Hiccup idea.
    Hiccup: Exactly. [to Astrid] What?
  • D.U.M.B. It Makes Sense in Context.

Alvin & the Outcasts

  • Astrid elbowing Mildew in the face when he tries to give up Hiccup to the Outcasts.
    "My grandfather is frail. He needs his nap."
    • She was holding Mildew up while she said that and as soon as Alvin turns away she drops him like a sack of potatoes. So overdue!
  • Alvin the Treacherous tells all of the Vikings that his name was earned.
    Tuffnut: Alvin? Psh. How did he earn that?
  • Even when being held hostage by people who could kill him at any moment, Hiccup still dishes out snark because it’s too ingrained in him. There is just something so chuckle-worthy about seeing him looking badass undermining the Outcasts by doing what comes naturally to him.

How to Pick Your Dragon

  • While helping Stoick choose a dragon, Ruffnut and Tuffnut get into a fight, which their dragons emulate. The two heads each do their half of the Breath Weapon at each other, with predictable results.
  • Hiccup tells Stoick to treat his new dragon like a friend.
    Stoick: Oh, like me and Gobber.
    Hiccup: Right, perfect. Now, what did you do when you first met him?
    Stoick: [grabs Hiccup in a headlock] That’s my wife you’re talking to, you one-legged lout!
    • Especially funny considering what the second movie told us about Gobber.
    • Which becomes even more funny once you realize that he met his dragon in a very similar way.
  • Toothless has just gotten done hauling Stoick all over the island for the day, and is visibly exhausted. Hiccup is sympathetic to his plight. As he tells Astrid:
    Hiccup: That’s what it looks like to be ridden all day by a 400-pound man.
  • Hiccup’s constant attempts to give advice getting completely ignored. Eventually he wonders if anyone can even see him.
  • Snotlout’s brief stint as a dragon salesman, trying to sell Stoick on a Monstrous Nightmare.
    Snotlout: They come in an assortment of colors!
    • Also Astrid’s, with a Freudian Slip that she’s actually talking about herself regarding people underestimating the toughness of something beautiful.
  • Stoick trying to bond with the Thunderdrum. And when the Thunderdrum tries to bite his hand, Stoick punches him across the academy.
  • Hiccup tries to persuade Stoick to get a dragon of his own, but he never says the glaringly obvious reason which he’d already brought up to Astrid, that Stoick is simply too heavy for Toothless. This is a callback to ‘Viking for Hire’ where Stoick got mad because he thought Hiccup was making a crack at his weight—again.
  • Hiccup apologizes to the Thunderdrum for putting a muzzle on him, then mutters to the dragon that they should get a muzzle for his dad.

Portrait of Hiccup as a Buff Young Man

  • The title of the episode could be considered funny. It’s just so...straightforward.
  • In episode 8, seeing how much of a ditz Hookfang is. It took about five seconds for him to notice Snotlout frantically screaming for him—because he was watching a leaf fall.
  • Fishlegs apologizing to a portrait Snotlout and the twins knock off a wall.
  • The possible Ship Tease of Ruffnut and Astrid’s reactions to the portrait displaying Hiccup as a very buff teenager doing a flex pose, which looks rather ridiculous. Tuffnut’s obliviousness just makes it more amusing.

Dragon Flower

  • While he doesn’t get kicked off the Island to justify what he does in "Dragon Flower" by trying to outright poison and kill the Dragons, Mildew’s Karma Houdini status gets subverted right in the last few minutes by being bitten in the ass by a Scauldron, being injected with its venom, then suffers an Ass Shove by Gobber using a very large bellows to suck the poison out. All while the gang is showing obvious amusement at his suffering.
    Mildew: Isn’t there something smaller you could use?
    Gobber: ...Probably. [uses bellows anyway]
    Tuffnut: Can you believe we’re all just standing around, waiting for something to come out of Mildew’s butt?
    • And this line from Gobber after he finishes extracting the poison:
      "I’ve seen a Nadder spine slice through a man’s eyeball like a grape. I watched my own arm get devoured by a Monstrous Nightmare. But never, NEVER, have I seen anything so disturbing as that old man’s bare behind. (hands urn of poison to Hiccup) Here, take this to your dragons. (walks off) I’m going into the forest to scream."
      • Listen closely and you can hear Gobber screaming in the distance as Stoick walks into his house.
  • Stoick explains that he named his dragon Thornado because he has the power of Thor, the ferocity of a tornado... and he wouldn’t answer to anything else.
    Stoick: He can be quite stubborn!
  • Hiccup’s ending monologue of the episode:
    Hiccup: A deadly flower, a venomous sea dragon, and Mildew’s butt: three things I never really thought I’d have to deal with in the same day. But I’ll do anything for my dragon.

Heather Report Part 1

  • This part:
    Snotlout: You will not believe what I just found!
    Tuffnut: A severed head?
    Ruffnut: Our cousin Lars?
    Fishlegs: Lars died?
    Tuffnut: Who said that?
  • After Alvin tells him that his life depends on the Book Of Dragons reaching Alvin, Savage’s only response after Alvin walks away is:
    Savage: Hate it when he says that.
  • Snotlout showing his mastery over commanding Hookfang.
    Snotlout: Hookfang, get your butt over here!
    [Hookfang gives a "What did you say?!" look and flies away]
    • Then later that episode
    Heather: Can he flame up on command?
    Snotlout: He can, but he won’t. Pig-headed dragon.
    [Cue Hookfang breathing a small fire onto his pants]
    Snotlout: Could you give me a minute? [Runs off to the nearest source of water] Just one minute!
  • The scene where Tuffnut is showing Heather the ins and outs of a Zippleback. After they accidentally torch a boat, the Tuffnut’s gleeful response is priceless.
    Tuffnut: Usually we hide until the chief finds us. Then we get in trouble!

Heather Report Part 2


  • Fishlegs and Meatlug getting stuck during one of the games.
  • When Snotlout wins the Sheep Lug event, he throws the sheep aside to pose and preen. The sheep bounces off Hookfang’s wing, lands on its hooves, bleats, then starts walking off, without once changing expression.
  • Snotlout’s SPECTACULAR fail during his turn of the freestyle dragon event.
  • "The Iron Split". Ouch.
  • Hiccup’s final volley to Snotlout (even if it was uncalled for):
    "That’s it, keep smiling, as your family’s winning streak goes up in smoke, just like your Rings of Deadly Fire."
    • Snotlout's loss of words and grunting out of frustration as he walks away and kicks a bucket is priceless
  • Tuffnut and Ruffnut continue to be a treasure trove of comedy gold.
    Tuffnut: Rock to the face! I love a good rock to the face. [Ruffnut picks up a rock and smacks him in the face, hard.]
  • Bucket repeating his line from the introduction to the Sheep Lug, during the dragon-related events.
    Bucket: It's a good day for luggin' sheep, Mulch.

When Lightning Strikes

  • When everything’s said and done, the village has (to an extent) learned what a lightning rod is. The metal statue of Thor they built in a misguided attempt to stop the lightning needs to be removed, but Stoick figures it will be safe to leave up as long as they move it somewhere higher. Snotlout chooses the perfect spot: Mildew’s front door. If there was ONE case that might actually be a Bolt of Divine Retribution, it’s probably that one.
    • Bonus points of funny in that it is literally Laser-Guided Karma for the receiver.
    • More bonus points: Look at Stoick's expression when he suggests that the kids "Take [the statue] up to one of the high points on the island, and leave it there". He knows exactly how Snotlout and the twins are going to interpret that, and is fine with it.
  • When Hiccup wakes up after being unconscious, the music from the ending of the movie plays until he checks to see if his right leg is still there.
    Hiccup: At least I didn’t lose another one.
  • Lightning is raining down on Berk, destroying and lighting homes ablaze. What do Tuffnut and Ruffnut do? Enjoy the show.
    Ruffnut: I’ve always liked Thor.
  • At the end, the villagers still believe that Thor was angry at something.
    Gobber : And until we find out why Thor was angry at the metal, we’re all walking on eggshells.
    • Also, in the same vein, the end of Astrid’s story about her aunt who was cursed by Odin and had to pay him tribute by sailing to the end of the Earth.
      Fishlegs: Did it work?
      Astrid: I don’t know. I guess she couldn’t find it, because she kept showing up from the opposite direction.
    • Fishlegs fudging the "smack a Jorgenson" part of his good luck ritual.
  • A subtle one after the perches are first built and Hiccup, Stoick, and Gobber are talking about the success at the dinner table. Stoick is about to take a drink, then puts down his tankard saying they should probably move the perch that’s over the well. Gobber then gives his tankard the stink-eye, and we go to Hiccup and see Stoick’s hand covering Hiccup’s mug and gently pulling it away while an oblivious Hiccup keeps talking and trying to get the mug to his mouth.
    • From the same scene, Gobber saying that Vikings go before dragons and Toothless turns around with a "What?!" like response.
      Gobber: Yeah, I said it! Deal with it!
    • Hilarious Call-Back to a joke in episode one:
      Fishlegs: In the past, I know Thor’s enjoyed a sacrifice or two.
      Ruffnut: Let’s sacrifice Tuffnut!
      Tuffnut: (ponders for a second) Okay. What time should I be there? There better be fire involved.

What Flies Beneath

  • This exchange at the beginning:
    Bucket: What does it want? What’s it going to do to us? WHY AREN’T YE SLAPPING ME TO SNAP ME OUT OF THIS?!
    Mulch: Cause I’m scared too, Bucket!


  • Dagur’s very long Evil Laugh when regaling about the time he almost drowned Hiccup.
  • "Okay think like Ruffnut and Tuffnut. (beat) I can’t believe I just said that."
  • Snotlout’s relaxed explanation of a horrible situation.
    Snotlout: [casually reclining on a rock and picking at his nails] The Berserkers are hunting down your dragon to use its blood for ink.
    Everyone: [stares at Snotlout in shock and horror]
    Snotlout: What? Is that not what’s happening?
    • Even better, the only person not giving Snotlout a horrified look is Hiccup, who is giving him a Death Glare instead.
  • When Dagur is demanding that Stoick and Gobber show him where the dragons are, and they deny having dragons, we get this gem:
    Dagur: Do I look stupid to you?
    Gobber: (Whispering to Stoick) Trick question, don’t answer it.
  • During the climax of the episode, Hiccup repeatedly smacks into/knocks over Dagur with his shield.
    Hiccup: Back, you fiend, you! You’ll not hurt my friend, Dagur! (Immediately slams shield edge into Dagur’s face)
  • Hiccup’s melodramatic acting - especially his "You owe it to your people!" while trying to convince Dagur to leave - is also worth a good laugh.

Defiant One

  • Yes, Night Fury saliva has amazing healing properties.
    • When Hiccup says this, you get the feeling that it’s less about healing properties and more like he just told Toothless to spit in the serum for the hell of it.
      • That doesn't stop the fact that Snotlout's tongue does heal after he does it, though.
  • Hiccup snarking despite being surrounded by Outcasts yet again.
  • The rescue party. Oh, the rescue party. We have Gobber riding Hookfang, who is constantly lighting himself on fire. And then there’s this exchange between Ruffnut and Stoick (again, note they are on Dragons over open ocean):
    Ruffnut: I've got to go to the bathroom!
    Stoick: Then you should have gone before we left!
    Tuffnut: That’s what helmets are for!
    Stoick: We'll fly low over the water!
    Ruffnut: Good, I really need to rinse out my helmet.
  • The Running Gag started by Savage giving Alvin a "birthday present" (proving someone from Berk is on the island) with the rest of the Outcasts not knowing if it’s Alvin’s birthday or not for most of the episode.
    Alvin: As far as you’re concerned, every day’s me birthday!
  • When the kids initially return to Berk, Stoick reveals that the what boat has returned. Tuffnut says something akin to "Why didn’t you tell us that before we left?", earning him a seriously stern look from Stoick. Realizing the trouble, he tries to pin the deed on his sister. Twice.
  • Gobber’s fireproof skivvies.

Breakneck Bog

  • When Hiccup is explicitly telling Snotlout and Astrid not to tell anyone about this, you can already expect that a Gilligan Cut with the entire gang there.
  • When Astrid finds out it was Tuffnut who was behind scaring them, she grabs the skeleton hand away from him and repeatedly hits him over the head with it.
    • When Tuffnut asks Ruffnut for help (since she was in on it as well), she takes the hand from Astrid... and starts hitting Tuffnut as well.
    Hiccup: Alright alright, break it up you guys. [Astrid grabs the arm from Ruffnut and hits Tuffnut one last time]
    Tuffnut: YEOUCH!
  • Snotlout, Ruff and Tuff dump Johan on a small abandon rock. At the end of the episode, Johan wants 5 minutes alone with them to pay them back for that.
  • Everyone throwing anything metal at the smoke dragons. What makes this funny is that they were mostly throwing their weapons, which were way more than should be possible.
  • Astrid hanging nonchalantly from Stormfly’s mouth when the latter picks her up to save her from a falling anchor. She just looks so relaxed, like it’s perfectly normal, and no one bats an eye at it!
  • Fishlegs subverting a moment of awesome, after knocking away a smoke dragon trying to take Hiccup’s prosthetic and declaring "You will NOT haunt my dreams! (softly) ...because I’ll never sleep again."
  • When Astrid tries to convince the others to help Hiccup recover the chest, Snotlout Kicks The Dog.
    Astrid: Put yourself in his shoes.
    Snotlout: Shoe.
    • And immediately afterwards, when Astrid guilt trips them, there’s an immediate Gilligan Cut and Snotlout is wearing the most flat, deadpan expression ever.
    Snotlout: I hate you.
    • Just to top it off, Tuffnut nods in the background as if to acknowledge his words.
  • The twins continue to provide comedy gold.
    • After the others all tag along, Astrid reminds Hiccup that he’s always saying they work better as a team.
    Hiccup: The next time I say that, just slap me in the face.
    Ruffnut: (eagerly) I’ll do it right now.
    Tuffnut: She will. And she slaps like a guy. It’s awesome!
  • Astrid and Hiccup jump from their dragons and land on the ship, ninja-stance. Then Fishlegs just... falls flat on the ship, face-first.

Gem Of A Different Color

  • At the very beginning, Gobber is pairing the teens up for sparring. He eventually puts Astrid and Hiccup together, which is particularly funny thanks to how distressed Hiccup and how absolutely ecstatic Astrid look at the idea.
    Hiccup: "W-well I-I don’t think it’s really fair for me to be fighting-" (Astrid aims a kick at his head)
  • The return of Baby Magnus.
    Tuffnut: That’s a baby? Looks like a bundle of sticks, wrapped in bacon.
    • Her sheer ugliness makes Meatlug throw up.
  • While the camouflaging Changewings are attacking the village, Tuffnut thinks he sees one and tries to tame it in the most hammy way possible:
    Tuffnut: I see it! I got this! [approaches what is clearly an ordinary tree] STAY DRAGON! I AM NOW YOUR MASTER!" [puts his hand on the tree, and gives the others the cheesiest thumbs up possible even though nothing is happening]
    Stoick:’s gone, isn’t it..?
    Hiccup: (as though it were the most obvious thing in the world - because it is) Oh, long gone.
  • Almost every one of the teenagers gets some snark in at Snotlout at some point.
  • Gustav.

We Are Family Part 1

  • As usual, the twins have their moments.
    • Being fascinated by a moving spot of light on the ground created by Snotlout, just like a dragon.
      Tuffnut: Not as cool as that disappearing shiny thing! You can never catch it!
    • Their method to search for the door to Bork’s cave. By smashing their head against the hard, solid stone of a cliff’s side.
  • Snotlout and the Changewing. All of it.
    • First there are the various ways Snotlout is used as a literal chew toy by the dragon, from being slammed repeatedly against a wall to being used as some sort of fleshy doll by the remarkably dexterous dragon.
    • And then Snotlout’s reactions to the various rescue attempts from Hookfang and the twins. They all include liberal amount of fire or flammable gas being shot in the general direction of the Changewing, so Snotlout isn’t exactly thrilled.

We Are Family Part 2

  • Fishlegs line after throwing a Outcast overboard.
    Fishlegs: That felt really good. ...Is that wrong?
    • It’s the look of deranged enjoyment on his face that really sells it.
  • The exchange between Astrid and the twins:
    Astrid: What were you thinking? If that was Toothless, you could have killed him!
    Tuffnut: Yeah, well, if my chicken had horns, he’d be my yak.
    Ruffnut: And if I were weak and girly, I’d be my brother.
    Tuffnut: Yeah! Wait, what?
  • Toothless bitchslapping those two Outcasts with his tail.

    Season 2 
Live and Let Fly (Flight Club)
  • The shield incident. The repeated shield incident. (Especially the latter since it lead to an awkward position between Stoick and Gobber)
    Gobber: Right, I'll just... unwind that... and hopefully no one is looking....
  • Fishleg’s interrogation:
    Fishlegs: My name is Fishlegs. I live on the Island of Berk. I do not know anything about dragons or those who ride them!
    Gobber: Why does he keep saying that? He’s kinda giving me the willies....
  • Hiccup waking Stoick up and getting a Vader grip for his trouble... and an axe held to his face. Not to mention the implication that this happens a lot.
  • Gobber’s insensitivity in regards to the ban on flight... and calling Stoick out on it indirectly when discussing Thornado’s saddle.
  • The twins simply cannot understand the first rule of Flight Club.
  • Why does Fishlegs join Flight Club? He wants his own statue.

The Iron Gronckle

  • As Fishlegs is passing out new weapons, he gives a mace to a woman. Her husband then offers him a silent "Why?" before getting dragged off.
  • Hiccup forgetting to notice the flaw in his plan with calming Meatlug: His foot is metal. Magnetics is one harsh master.
  • Hookfang finally listens to a command, unfortunately it was Fishlegs stop command at Meatlug when Hookfang and Snotlout were flying. Cue Hookfang stopping on a dime (Actually facing Fishlegs with his tail wagging) as Snotlout is sent flying.
  • Fishlegs catches up to Hiccup, who’s underneath Meatlug. Hiccup is completely nonplussed and tries to have a heart to heart with Fishlegs while hanging upside down.

The Night and The Fury

  • Everyone instantly groans when Hiccup says the upcoming training mission was Astrid's idea.
    Astrid: What?
    Fishlegs: Your training missions are so hard!
    Astrid: They are not.
    Fishlegs: (holding up a bandaged hand) Hand-to-claw combat?
    Snotlout: Spine dodging?
    Tuffnut: Hot lava swimming?
    Astrid: We never did that.
    Tuffnut: Yeah, but you should've. It's way better than hand-to-claw combat.
  • After being assigned to bring the dragons to a cave when the gang splits up, Tuffnut immediately asks where the cave is. He reveals that he was kidding but his next line is just golden.
    Tuffnut: Or am I? Heh, even I don’t know!
  • Tuffnut overlooking the dragons is just golden in the amount of abuse he suffers. Toothless nonchalantly slaps him into a stalagmite before shooting him down and how his attempt at a scary story doesn’t work against them.
    Tuffnut: Man, tough cave.
  • Ruffnut trying to flee a Monstrous Nightmare but keeps running around back to it, repeatedly.
  • The various reactions the others have upon learning Dagur was on the island with them, and Hiccup’s attempts to get them to play along and pretend they are here hunting dragons.
    • And then Dagur’s comment that he and Hiccup have very different definitions of being "alone" on the island as Snotlout and the others start popping out.
    • Even more hilarious when Dagur later reveals he brought an armada with him to the island, meaning he wasn’t really alone on the island either!
  • Dagur’s extremely enthusiastic interactions with Hiccup.
  • Hiccup's constant Deadpan Snarker reactions to Dagur:
    • During a fireside conversation:
    Dagur: Ever since that battle with the Night Fury, I haven't been able to stop thinking about you.
    Hiccup: Well, that's...strange. Um, I'm flattered!
    Dagur: Not you personally. About that Night Fury!
    • When Dagur is about to move in for the kill on Toothless:
    Hiccup: Okay, that's it. I am not going to let you kill that dragon.
    Dagur: Ugh, not this again. Okay, fine, you saw it first. You can take, like, a wing or something.
    Hiccup: No, I'm pretty much gonna take the whole thing. *Dragon-calls Toothless*
    • And then, soon after:
    Hiccup: [Stoick] was trying to keep the peace between our tribes. So was I.
    Dagur: By making a fool out of ME?!
    Hiccup: You don’t really need a lot of help with that, Dagur.
  • Dagur’s comment near the end, especially funny because he kept mocking Hiccup’s choice of weapon earlier:
    [after Hiccup displays the Swiss Army Weapon nature of his shield]
    Dagur: I have got to get me one of those ornate shields!

Tunnel Vision

  • The opener of Stoick, Astrid, Stormfly, Hiccup, and Toothless chasing down Gobber to make him take a bath.
    • Becomes a Brick Joke at the end when they have water again.
  • Ruff spinning around to check when Tuff makes a joke about her butt being big. Followed by decking him for good measure.

Race to Fireworm Island

  • The exercise of dragon-to-dragon combat. Astrid is the bad guy for the exercise and supposed to chase down the others. She gets everyone except Hiccup... who hid under Toothless in a dark cave causing her to fly right by. Made even funnier because of the Ironic Echo both have about "how predictable" the other was.
    Hiccup: She’s not going to be too happy about this, is she?
  • Tuffnut announcing he and Ruffnut got Hookfang Fireworm milk.
    Fishlegs: Um, I don't think you can actually milk a Fireworm...
    Tuffnut: Oh, great. (holds up a bandaged hand) Where were you three hours ago?

Fright Of Passage

  • The twins’ list of demands.
    • And Snotlout somehow accomplishing all of them. From two rainbow colored chickens, to a fish dressed like Stoick, to a singing Terrible Terror.
  • The fact that Hookfang was on the list to the bunker and Snotlout wasn’t.
  • Hiccup trying to dissuade Astrid’s claim that he was interested in training the Flightmare.
    Hiccup: Well, you know Astrid... training dragons isn’t the only thing I think about.
    Astrid: Are you actually saying that to me with a straight face?
  • Gobber asleep on guard duty, and when woken he accidentally fires a catapult.
    • And the reaction to Astrid, Hiccup, and Fishlegs returning home.
    Gobber: Hiccup, slap me in the face. Your dragons are glowing.
  • Fishlegs and Toothless basically team up to ensure that Astrid and Hiccup go flying on Toothless. Shipper on Deck, anyone? Especially the look that Toothless gives to Hiccup when Astrid gets into former's saddle.

Worst in Show

  • Snotlout seems to do something right for once in his rescue training. He then declares a victory lap, resulting in high speed turns and going underwater. When he gets back up, the straw dummy he rescued loses its head.
    • Hookfang proceeds to set the dummy on fire and savagely stomp on it, much to the horror of Snotlout’s fellow riders.
  • Hiccup keeps trying to convince the other riders that not everything's a competition. No one listens.
  • Savage giving Mildew encouragement after Alvin says that he won’t kill Mildew that day.
    Savage: Trust me, it’s better than when he doesn’t say it.
  • Savage looking for signs of the dragon academy.
    Alvin: Well, what do you see?
    Savage: It’s quite dark. And something keeps swinging into my face! *The yaks move out of the way* Oh. Well, that explains it. Another Yak Farm!
    Alvin: What is it with you people and your Yaks?!
    • Mildew’s response is arguably even better, and a Call-Back to Hiccup’s crack about how he Has a Type.
  • Toss the Sheep. It's basically Meatlug carrying around a sheep and tossing it out of her mouth towards Fishlegs. And when he doesn’t play, she just tosses it a few times around him.
    • After Fishlegs made it clear he was not interested in playing Meatlug proceeds to sit in a corner looking sullen. Surprisingly the sheep follows her and sits right next to her looking sullen as well.

Appetite of Destruction

  • Astrid doesn’t believe that using Terrible Terrors as "air mail" (similar to messenger hawks) will work, and says that if Fishlegs and Snotlout meet them at Dragon Island she would kiss Snotlout in the lips. Snotlout shows up. Fortunately for Astrid’s dignity, she tells Hiccup to not talk about it and it doesn’t happen.
    Astrid: "Say it, and those will be the last words you ever speak." [Cracks neck]
    Hiccup: *Silent Gulp*
    • Call-Back towards the end when after giving him something for Fridge Brilliance, Fishlegs says he could kiss her in the lips and moves towards her. She shoves him away, likely remembering earlier.
  • Ruffnut’s argument why for it’s Hiccup’s fault that she and her brother tagged each other instead of the wild dragons.
    "You armed us with paint. Where did you think that was going to go?"
  • Hiccup, Astrid and Fishlegs, plus their dragons, on Sunstone Island... or what’s left of it. With Toothless and Stormfly hanging on precariously on the rock’s side, and their riders dishing out the snark.
    Hiccup: Well, I gotta say that the beaches are a bit of a disappointment.
  • Ruff and Tuff get air mail from Hiccup calling for reinforcements. They think the Terror is after them and proceed to run away until Snotlout, of all people, realizes it’s air mail.
  • Snotlout finds the twins pretending to be statues and calls them muttonheads. They proceed to pretend to be statues of muttonheads.
  • Fishlegs insisting on fancier names for the various colors used to tag dragons native to specific islands. Ironically, it’s the girl (Astrid) insisting on the simpler names.
  • Hiccup’s response to the fact the Screaming Death is no longer distracted by shiny objects:
    Hiccup: So it’s bigger and smarter. Not the greatest combination.
  • Astrid being upset about Hiccup leaving her alone on Dragon Island... despite Fishlegs and Meatlug being there.
    Fishlegs: Hello, man on a dragon here.
    Astrid: You know what I meant.

Zippleback Down

  • The Running Gag of Snotlout, Ruffnut and Tuffnut failing at setting off traps without getting caught.
  • How did Stoick know it was fire weather? Gobber’s chin was rough.
  • Tuffnut orders Barf and Belch to free him from a hanging net trap. They end up batting him with their noses like a pair of seals.
    • Later, Tuffnut gets into a philosophical discussion with them!
    • One of the conversations he has with Barf (the head Ruffnut rides) almost makes it seem like he's asking it out.
  • While searching for Hiccup, Ruffnut gets attacked by two Terrible Terrors who laugh and throw apples at her for their amusement. She throws one back and they shower her in a barrage of apples.
  • Ruffnut retracing her steps... one at a time.
    • Which makes it even more shocking that it actually works.
  • When Snotlout doubts Tuffnut’s training of Torch, Tuffnut demonstrates by getting Torch to open his wings... smacking Snotlout into a wagon which then rolls down the ramp to the docks.
  • The episode ends with Ruffnut finally disarming the trap, only for it to be sprung again, this time with both of them trapped!
    • To which Ruffnut comments, "This is worse than the womb."

A View to a Skrill

  • Bucket and Mulch reappear and are as hilarious as ever.
    • In one scene a Beserker tries to sucker punch Bucket with a mace to the back of his head. His head being protected by a bucket he doesn’t react. When the Berserker notices this, he just throws himself overboard rather than deal with Bucket.
  • Stoick lectures Hiccup on leaving a Skrill in the hands of Snotlout and the twins. Immediately after Hiccup says nothing could go wrong, a massive fireball erupts from the Dragon Academy. Cut to the academy where the twins plan on pinning the blame on Snotlout. Snotlout blames them when the others show up.
  • Snotlout (And later Mildew) taking a Skrill shock to the noggin, and being reduced to speaking utter gibberish.
    • Tuffnut "translates" for Snotlout.
    Hiccup: How many times has this kid been hit by lightning?!
    Tuffnut: Often enough.
    Snotlout: Eh, gurgle.
    Tuffnut: Oh, really? Twelve times.
  • While having the Skrill directly at their tail, Tuffnut suggests taking off all metal in order to not get shocked. However ever their nature Ruffnut suggests putting on more metal, so both pull out their swords as well.
  • Tuff hollowing out a tree as a disguise.
  • Tuffnut actually makes some decent jokes, though the irony makes them even funnier.
    "How do you get a one-armed Berkian out of a tree? Just wave!"
  • Tuffnut fooling both an Outcast guard and Dagur himself that he is a Berserker named Buffnut. He bosses the guard around to reveal top secret information and even composes a poem to please Dagur after he threatened to cut his legs off. He even starts singing a song that makes fun of Berk while knocking Mildew out to prevent him from revealing his identity.
  • Tuffnut is sent back to distract the Outcasts and Berserkers after the incident with Dagur threatening to amputate his legs. After Ruffnut’s nonchalance, he threatens Ruffnut:
    Tuffnut: My legs are on your head! Not- I mean not... You know what I’m saying. You’ll be thinking about these legs if I lose ‘em!
  • Throughout part 1, Dagur tossed Captain Vorg overboard, twice! Before the second one, he says this:
    Dagur: Umm, didn’t I, throw you overboard?
    Vorg: (proudly) Well, I am an excellent swimmer.

The Flight Stuff

  • Snotlout believing he’s going to die throughout the first half of the episode.
    • Extra funny from the reactions of his fellow riders.
    Tuffnut: Look on the bright side: At least you’ll be in eternal paradise.
    Astrid: So will we.
    Tuffnut: Is anyone else tired of listening to Snotlout’s ghost?
    Snotlout: Hey! I’m not dead yet!
    Ruffnut: You’re dead to us.
  • What actually happened with the signs of death? The Twins.
    • How did Hiccup realize this? Snotlout scratching his butt.
    • Snotlout’s "dying" words when confronted by the final death-sign (a mob of sheep):
    "Avenge me! Have lamb for dinner!"
  • When The Riders tell Gustav he needs experience to become a Dragon Rider, he goes in search of a dragon of his own. Cue Gustav being menaced by Terrible Terrors, a Deadly Nadder, and being chased by a Monstrous Nightmare after throwing a fish at its face.
  • Gustav vs. the obstacle courses, and Snotlout's attempt to taunt him. "You get a G! As in 'Fail'!"
    Astrid: *throws water on Gustav to wake him up*
    Ruffnut: "Hey, hey, hey! Don't throw water on him! Tiny Snotlout will just shrink more! Duh!"
  • Dagur’s completely baffled reaction to Fanghook, Gustav and their unorthodox flying style.
    Dagur: Who in the name of Thor is that?!
  • Snotlout’s reaction to Gustav and Fanghook being taken out by Dagur’s weapon.
    Snotlout: Well, that solves the Gustav problem.
  • The title Hiccup and the others come up with for Gustav: "Junior apprentice auxiliary reserve backup replacement rider in training, fourth class."

Free Scauldy

  • Ruffnut is the only one that can get close to the injured Scauldron because he likes the smell of the fish oil in her hair.
    • Before finding out about the fish oil, Fishlegs thinks the Scauldron is sniffing Ruffnut’s hair because it reminds the Scauldron of his mother's hair. Hiccup and Tuffnut look at him in disbelief.
  • While trying to (re)teach Ruffnut how to get Scauldy’s trust, one of the tips he gives her is to hold her hand out, and reenacts how he earned Toothless’ trust. Fishlegs then presses his nose against his hand—and he had no reason for why he did it.
    • For bonus points Toothless perks up when he sees Hiccup hold out his hand then growls at Fishlegs to back off when he takes his place. Toothless is definitely possessive about his rider.
  • Snotlout continues to hit on Astrid, much to her annoyance. After hurting him repeatedly after a while, she decides to switch to a different tactic... cue her basically mimicking Snotlout’s behavior, creeping him out completely. I think we know why he started going for Ruffnut instead in the second film...
    • Just to sell the Reverse Psychology, the Romantic Flight theme from the movie is playing in the background.
    • And Snotlout is so freaked out that he only has this to say:
    I don’t understand women!
  • Ruffnut’s impression of Hiccup.
    Ruffnut (With a slow, nasally voice): Hello nice dragon. You can be my friend. My leg fell off! All of the dragons are my friends!
    Hiccup: [offended] I don’t sound like that! And P.S. my leg didn’t FALL OFF!


  • At the beginning of the episode, the Riders have been stuck inside due to weather for so long, cabin fever's started to set in. Highlights include Fishlegs' deciding which of Meatlug's toes he likes best, and Tuffnut chasing an invisible tail because of Ruffnut.
  • Hiccup's sheer eagerness to go out and search for Trader Johann, followed by Hiccup and Toothless making near identical cute begging faces.
  • Hiccup and Trader Johan’s reaction to their Failed a Spot Check in regards to Meatlug.
  • Snotlout is repeatedly paralyzed throughout, relying on Gustav to move him and steer Hookfang. Just when he starts getting his motion back, he’s paralyzed again and deathly pale the whole time. Many Amusing Injuries happens to him during this time.
  • Johann accosts Hiccup with many, many stories. At the end after dropping him off at his now unfrozen ship, Hiccup and Toothless just fly away mid-story, much to his disappointment.
  • Guslout’s Jazz hands.
    Snotlout: Stop with the hands.
  • The Call-Back to the beginning of the episode, when Ruffnut stabs her brother in the butt:
    Tuffnut: (falls to the ground) I've been stung! I can't feel my tail!

A Tale Of Two Dragons

  • Hiccup’s frustrated rant to his father after Snotlout and Astrid’s fight from earlier.
    • Just before, he tried keeping calm. It didn’t end well...
    Hiccup: Everything is right as rain.
    Stoick: If you say so.
    Hiccup: I do. I say so. [Beat] Oh, fine, you win! Snotlout and Astrid are driving me completely insane! They’re acting like mental cases! I actually don’t know who’s worse: Them, or their dragons! I mean, at least with the dragons you can lock ‘em in their pens until they behave!
    Stoick: [completely calm] Feel better?
    Hiccup: Uh, a little.
  • The three options for dealing with fighting Vikings.
    Stoick: Option 1: Give them both axes and let them fight to the end.
    Hiccup: That seems a little...permanent. What’s option 2?
    Stoick: Give them both maces and let them fight to the end.
    Hiccup: Do I even want to know what option 3 is?
    • And Snotlout and Astrid see right through Hiccup's ploy afterwards.
    Snotlout: That Hiccup.
    Astrid: Option 3.

The Eel Effect

  • Gobber thinking he was his own aunt.
  • Ruff and Tuff actually becoming smarter under the effects of eel pox. With oddly posh accents for some reason. Up to including their invention of ice cream.
    Gobber: Who would freeze perfectly good yak milk?
  • Snotlout thinking he’s some sort of dragon revolutionary firebrand.
    • And having trouble with his Terrible Terror biting him on the nose again.
    • Look closely, and you even see Thornado rolling his eyes at him!
  • While setting a trap for the out-of-control Toothless, Hiccup suggests that if it fails, they could always try having Meatlug sit on him. Later, when Toothless escapes the first trap, Meatlug lands on top of him. Even Hiccup can't believe that worked.
  • The Explain, Explain... Oh, Crap! moment that occurs as Hiccup and Fishlegs spot something while scouting the island for Toothless:
    Fishlegs: That's a Typhoomerang mark!
    Hiccup: The only dragon that eats eels!
    Fishlegs: (smiling in excitement at the discovery) Yes, that makes sense... it's the perfect habitat for them, really... I bet there's tons of wild Typhoomerangs around here! (Hiccup stares blankly at him for 3 seconds until his expression morphs into one of sheer terror) And that's bad. Really bad...
  • The pay off of the above occurs when they spot the disoriented Toothless:
    Fishlegs: (looking up) Uh, Hiccup, ya' got a sec?
    Hiccup: (watching Toothless) I'm a little busy here. Could it wait?
    Fishlegs: It could, it could... but I don't think it will... (pan up to the Typhoomerang next to them)

Smoke Gets In Your Eyes

  • Macey. Just... Macey.
    Tuffnut: You! (points to Ruffnut) You were always jealous of her. You knew that I loved her more, because I told you every so often, and I wrote it in your room on the wall!
    • Even Ruffnut gets weirded out by Tuffnut!
  • Bucket and Mulch start hitting each other with sturgeons, because their bludgeons were stolen with the rest of the metal.
  • Dagur and Savage in general. Dagur is even less tolerant of Savage’s sniveling Sycophantic Servant ways than Alvin was. And then there’s this exchange:
    *as Hiccup approaches with a horde of Smokebreath dragons trailing behind him*
    Dagur: "What is that?!"
  • Dagur’s hammy reaction to Hiccup and co. dropping several weight of loose metal on his ship.
    Dagur: *catches a spoon in midair* "A spoon? They’re dropping spoons? Why are they dropping spoons? What does this mean!? Could this be a spoon of surrender?"
    <A Smokebreath grabs the spoon out of his hand>
    Savage: "I... don’t think so sir."
  • The annoyed looks Stoick, Hiccup, and Toothless each give Trader Johann when they realize he's the one who (inadvertently) brought the Smothering Smokebreath dragons to Berk.

Bing! Bam! Boom!

  • The baby Thunderdrums cause mayhem throughout the episode. Prize moments include:
    Stoick: *proud* I taught him that.
    Hiccup: I thought I recognised that roar...
    • Their naming - Bing, Bam, and Lloyd. Lloyd is quickly dubbed 'Boom', but this keeps coming up throughout the episode, such as when Snotlout intercepts one.
    Snotlout: End of the line, Bing! ... or are you Lloyd?
    • Fishlegs tries to teach them to disarm an opponent. One of them promptly steals his sword, and they start playing keep-away with it. And Meatlug joins in, getting an Et Tu, Brute? from Fishlegs.
    • The baby Thunderdrums blasting away the sheep through the entire episode.
    • When the Thunderdrums are about to escape, Hiccup calls to Tuff, "The gate!" Cue Tuff rushing over and pointing at the gate as if to indicate where it was. Hiccup is not amused.
    • Ruff and Tuff saying goodbye to the baby Thunderdrums.
    Ruffnut: This is kinda sad.
    Tuffnut: Yeah. Reminds me of the time our parents took Sam, our pet yak, out to that farm to live.
    Ruffnut: Yeah, I would’ve cried all night, (beat) except for those delicious yak steaks we had that night.
    Tuffnut: Oooh, nothing better. And to eat them in those soft yak jackets.
    • Snotlout tries to lose the baby Thunderdrums. They figure it out, and blast him off Hookfang. Who, [[Running Gag, once again]], has to be reminded (this time by Hiccup) that his rider is falling to his doom.
    • The next plan is to distract them with food, then take the long route back. Hiccup is then flabbergasted to find that not only did this not work, but Bing, Bam, and Boom ended up beating them back.

Cast Out: Part 1

  • After Hiccup suspends Snotlout from the academy, he finds Ruffnut and Tuffnut planning to knock out the wall in Hookfang's cage to expand their space, complete with plans for curtains. Apparently Tuff has an eye for fabrics.
  • The charges against Alvin:
    Gobber: Alvin the Treacherous, you are hereby charged with the following crimes: treachery, attempted treachery, premeditated treachery, conspiracy to commit treachery, and...well, you get the idea!
  • After Snotlout claims to have captured Alvin the Treacherous while unconscious:
    Snotlout: "Unconscious like a fox."
    Tuffnut: "Uh... That doesn't even make sense to me, and I am foxy like a badger."
  • After the Dragon Root and Berserker fiasco in the academy, the Twins reunite with their dragon:
    Tuffnut: "Aww, you guys! Thanks for not killing us. Well, thanks for not killing me. Could have done with one less nut, if you know what I'm sayin'."

Cast Out: Part 2

  • The Twins add fuel to an angry mob of Vikings when Gobber is failing to placate the people. They did this because they wanted to scream for no reason.
  • Fishlegs and Meatlug escaping the jaws of the Screaming Death by... Meatlug’s gassy behind.
  • After seeing the Screaming Death destroying Outcast Island, Savage escapes and says "Well, that’s my cue."
  • Fishlegs proudly notes Meatlug's immunity to Dragonroot, then realizes just what this means his part in Hiccup's plan will be.

    Season 3 

Dragon Eye of the Beholder Part 1

  • Dagur maintains his Laughably Evil habits, and is arguably as funny as he is dangerous. Which is much more than he used to be.
    • Such as this gem after the usual antics of the other dragon riders.
    Dagur: Still haven't got rid of the Greek Chorus, I see.
  • Ruffnut gets the bright idea to smuggle jewels off a ship in her mouth, and Tuffnut says he'll do the same. Meaning stuff more jewels into her mouth, because he needs to be able to talk.
    • And when a Berserker mook punches her in the stomach to make her cough them out, Ruff gets even by spitting a ruby into his mouth, causing him to choke. He does manage to hack it up, right into Dagur's face, causing an exasperated non-reaction from him.

Dragon Eye of the Beholder Part 2

  • Dagur's Mood-Swinger habits come to full force when Hiccup steals back the Dragon Eye through simple stealth. His angrish screaming ends with him tossing a mook overboard, and causing another one to jump off the boat from fear.
    Dagur: *to Savage* SEE WHAT YOU DID! You distracted me. And now my pretty, cylindrical, mysterious object is gone. *turns to the sky* GOOD FOR YOU HICCUP! GOOD FOR YOU! But I got all the gold, YOU HEAR ME?! ALL THE GOLD! ALL! THE! GOLD! *throws Savage to the floor* HOO HOO HOO HAHAHAHAHAHAAA! *turns nonchalant* You know you can never have nice things around that guy? *steps on Savage as he walks away*
  • Gobber’s stint as the village healer. One highlight includes a man coming to medication for his leg after getting stuck in a trap. Gobber somehow lit the poor villager leg on fire. Then Gobber has to deal with another man who’s nauseous. He not only botches the cure by mixing random potions and sneezing in it, but somehow ends up curing the man’s baldness instead!
    • Especially the thorn.
    Gobber: My official diagnosis is... a thorn.
    Viking: Yes, I told you that already!
    Gobber: Don't worry, I can remove it right quick!
    Viking: (hopefully) The thorn?
    Gobber: (cheerfully) The foot!

Imperfect Harmony

  • Snotlout’s quip about the Twins.
    Two bodies, half a brain.
  • The gang loses their dragons, so Hiccup and Toothless fly ahead to look for them. The remaining five get attacked by a wild Thunderdrum, rendering them temporarily deaf.
    Snotlout: Anything else you wanna draw towards us?! Changewing, ooh, a Screaming Death, maybe?! I'm sure there are one of those around here!
    Hiccup: Snotlout, you're yelling very loudly!
    Snotlout: Oh, really?! I can barely hear myself! 'Cuz that’s what happens when you get attacked by A WILD THUNDERDRUM!
    Hiccup: Okay, we need our dragons. I’m gonna go back out there.
    [The others don’t respond. Because they can’t hear him.]
    Hiccup: I said I’M GOING BACK OUT THERE!
    Snotlout: NO! No, you’re not! I will take your other leg!
    Astrid: No way, Hiccup! You are not leaving us alone!
    Fishlegs: We’re dragon-less and defenseless!
    Hiccup: Okay, fine, we’ll all go together.
    [They don’t respond, they just scowl at him. They still can’t hear him.]
    Hiccup: Oh, for- I SAID WE’LL ALL GO TOGETHER!!
    Tuffnut: Well, why didn’t you just say so?! Jeez!
    [They all smile at Hiccup]
  • Toothless trying to drag Hiccup with him by biting his prosthetic and dragging him along, only for the prosthetic to come off while Toothless keeps running.
  • Snotlout playing dead when the Deathsong returns to choose its next meal.

When Darkness Falls

  • When the gang is searching for an island to call home:
    • First, Snotlout and Hiccup are seen running away from wild boars until they reach a cliff. Snotlout attempts to use Hiccup's leg as a weapon before Stormfly chases the boars off.
    • Then they come to an island infested with Whispering Deaths.
    Snotlout: Been there, done that.
    • The next island seems okay... except for the Blue Oleanders growing everywhere.
    • They then end up on the same boar-infested island from before, because Fishlegs forgot to check it off the list. Everyone jumps off the cliff to land on their dragons, who all catch them relatively easily - except for Meatlug, who plummets straight down after Fishlegs lands on her back.
  • For once, Tuffnut’s name for a dragon sticks - specifically, the leader of the Night Terrors, which is now called ‘Smidvarg’. Hiccup even admits that it’s growing on him.
  • The chicken. Everything to do with the chicken.
  • The twins’ obsession with a boar pit.
    • And Fishlegs' response.
  • Tuffnut falling off a cliff twice. TJ Miller must have been having even more fun than usual in the booth that day.
    • Complete with the long awaited return of Tuffnut's Catchphrase!
    Tuffnut: Oh, I am hurt! I am very much hurt!
    • After his second fall:
    Tuffnut: This island is very cliffy!
  • Call-Back to "Frozen", where Hiccup and Toothless were driven crazy by the others' antics. When Ruffnut and Tuffnut initiate the Thorston Challenge, Hiccup graciously asks to join them.
    Hiccup: Ruff, Tuff, wait up! How about a couple of impartial judges for the Thorston Challenge?! FOR THE LOVE OF THOR, TAKE US WITH YOU! [flies after them]
    • There's also the fact that Astrid of all vikings is also joining in on the antics by trying to steal a rock from Fishlegs.
    • The stakes for the Thorston Challenge are also pretty funny.

Big Man on Berk

  • Fishlegs being hypnotized into the fearless Thor Bonecrusher... Seriously, this is one of the funniest episodes ever.
  • Snotlout’s one-sided bromance with Bonecrusher, and the riders response to it.
    Snotlout: (to an unhypnotized Fishlegs) You broke my heart, Thor. You broke it right in two. (kisses Fishlegs on the cheek and flies away)
  • Astrid mocking Snot’s crush on Bonecrusher.
    Astrid: He wasn't thinking! (suddenly sweet-voiced) He's in wuuuuuuv! He'd do anyfing for his big hunk of bonecwushing wuv!
  • Bonecrusher’s story about how he took on the Scauldron all alone, while the other riders all huddled together in fear on Toothless.
  • Fishlegs/Bonecrusher gets in a couple of seriously funny insults at Stoick the Vast of all people. Right in his face.

Reign of Fireworms

  • The episode is about the Twins discovering their family actually owns the island the group's base is on. The jokes write themselves, and all play out beautifully.

Gone Gustav Gone

  • Tuffnut and Ruffnut's reaction when they find out Gustav intends to move to Dragons' Edge:
    Tuffnut: Wait, he's serious!? I'll get the stake and firewood...
    Hiccup: Hold on, hold on. No one is burning anyone at the stake.
    Ruffnut: Hiccup's right... let's just throw him off the cliff!
    • When trying to make Gustav useful, Gustav reveals that he filled up a hole, which leads to an Oh, Crap! moment for both Ruffnut and Tuffnut, as that was the boar pit he filled up. Tuffnut's reaction is gold.
    Tuffnut: He filled in the boar pit! He filled in the boar pit! Who fills in a boar pit?! (as dramatic music plays) BOOOOOOAAAAAAARRRRRR PIIIIIIIITTTTTTT!
  • Gustav's entire dinner scene with Dagur, where he snarks to the Berserker leader's face that Hiccup has kicked Dagur's butt plenty of times before.

Crushing It

  • Arriving back on Berk, Hiccup finds out that his father's been rearranging the weapons daily. Today it was by deadliness, but before that it was by length, before that by pointiness, and before that, he apparently NAMED every weapon and wanted them arranged alphabetically.
  • Stoick insults someone offscreen, saying, "You plow like an old lady!" Only to Description Cut over to show Gothi with a ticked off expression. Because she IS an old woman.
  • Gobber's Sanity Slippage after getting hit by a whole tower.
    • At one point Gobber thinks the Rumblehorn is a yak named Pepé. The Rumblehorn is understandably weirded out.
  • Stoick's Badass Boast as he's falling from the sky. It's equal parts hilarious and Crazy Awesome.

Quake, Rattle and Roll

  • Fishlegs becoming progressively better at being a Combat Pragmatist thanks to Snotlout's lessons, leading to a number of Amusing Injuries for the latter.
  • To demonstrate to Hiccup that they're ready to fight, Fishlegs gives the command, 'battle ready' and Meatlug takes up a threatening, snarling Ass Kicking Pose. Toothless looks unimpressed and hits her with a small plasma blast in the face, leaving her startled and with an Ash Face.

Have Dragon, Will Travel Part 1

  • Tuffnut tries to marry Heather's Razorwhip mount.
  • Heather and Astrid tag teaming to deal with Snotlout’s inept and irritating flirting.

Have Dragon, Will Travel Part 2

  • Hiccup pointing out to Trader Johann that sooner or later, Johann always tells him what he wants to know and that both of them know this, so he might as well say it. And it had better be the short version. Johann admits that he’s got a point and tells Hiccup what he wants to know without further ado.
  • Dagur trying to pull a Darth Vader ‘you know it to be true’ on Heather - who actually is his sister, as it turns out, then afterwards considering suitable Berserker names for her.
    Dagur: Heather the Unhinged could work!
  • Heather asks Astrid if she's with Hiccup while they're practicing with their axes. In response, Astrid accidentally flings her ax wildly into the wrong direction.

The Next Big Sting

  • Everyone's reaction when seeing Hiccup's first flight suit, especially Toothless's WTF face, and Tuff's simple deadpan reaction.
    Tuffnut: [slowly shows Chicken] The chicken is not amused.
  • After the second time that Hiccup's prototype suit fails, Toothless gives such a perfect, bitchy "Oh good Gods" eye roll before jumping to save Hiccup again. His face should have been the page image for Silent Snarker.
    • And after the third time, he just spits a jet stream of water into Hiccup's face with a chuckle.
  • Ruff and Snotlout are riding on Hookfang with the Speed Stinger, which they have tied up in ropes.
    Ruffnut: The ropes should hold! I tied ‘em really... (The Speed Stinger breaks free) ...tight. Whoops!
    Snotlout: Whoops?! That’s all you got?! WHOOPS?!
    Ruffnut: There’s other things I wanna say, but none of them are very lady-like!
  • The juvenile Speed Stinger can only partially paralyze people, resulting in Ruffnut spending the whole episode with various halves of her body asleep. Plus Fishlegs' arm.
  • Snotlout's out-of-nowhere attempt at heroism. "COME AND GET ME NEEDLE-BUTTS!"

Total Nightmare

  • When Snotlout finds out that Hookfang is seemingly courting a female Monstrous Nightmare, and Astrid's snarky reply.
    Snotlout: Looks like my dragon has a way with the ladies! Must've picked a few things up from his master.
    Astrid: I doubt it. She's not dry-heaving.
  • Snotlout already having names for the Hookfang replacements, and then rejecting them all right afterward.
  • Tuffnut crying at the happy ending.
    • Heck, the twins are funnier than usual this time around.

    Season 4 

Team Astrid

  • Hiccup falls asleep using Toothless as a pillow. When Astrid leaves to take a walk, Hiccup is sprawled out on top of Toothless.
  • In response to Astrid's "this is my dragon" chant, Gothi writes with her staff. Repeatedly. To the point where smoke billows from the ground.
  • Tuffnut and his chicken continue to deliver laughs.
    I know you're nodding back there. I can hear your feathers ruffling. You STAY OUT OF IT!
  • When joining Astrid after her training session for the new dragon riders ended, Hiccup asks why Spitelout is still doing push-ups.
    Hiccup: So what did he do?
    Astrid: He's Snotlout's dad.
    Hiccup: Enough said.
  • The twins run into Bucket and Mulch on a Zippleback during the climax.
    Tuffnut: This is like looking into a mirror. But you're better looking.
  • Just... Dagur's reactions when he learns that there are more dragon riders than usual this time.

Night Of The Hunters

  • While Ruffnut was trying to get a key off the guard, she keeps finding other things hidden in his clothes and starts getting annoyed, then the camera shows her taking a chicken leg from him and EATING IT while making pleading noises, IN SLOW MOTION!
    • The other's reactions just sell it!
      • This even includes a callback to the movie when Fishlegs dropped his bucket!
  • When Snotlout learns that Hiccup's led him to the home of the Screaming Death:
  • After the first escape attempt fails in Part 2, Tuff continuously heckles Astrid for losing her fight with Heather.

Bad Moon Rising

  • Tuffnut goes insane enough to imagine Chicken talking to him. With a seductive female voice, no less.
  • Ruffnut dragging Snotlout along to collect various different dragon bites to compare to Tuffnut's. Cumulates when he ends up with a venomous sea snake bite to top off the abuse.

The Zippleback Experience

  • Hiccup opens the door of his hut... and gets buried up to his shoulders in fish.
    Hiccup: OH, FOR THE LOVE OF THOR! Who did this?! Wait, why am I even asking? Ruff! Tuff! Ooh, I've got another shift with your names on it! (Toothless casually starts chowing down on the free snack) Really? You're eating the evidence.
  • The twins' third attempt to put Hiccup in danger — have Snotlout attack him out of nowhere — has got to be one of the most hilarious sequences in the series:
    • Right before he punches Hiccup in the face, Snotlout is waiting for him with a look on his face that clearly says, "I've been waiting for this moment for a long time."
    • The whole time, Hiccup is as clueless as he is annoyed by his friend attacking him with an axe.
    • The oblivious Hiccup repeatedly tries to walk away, but Snotlout keeps pushing his buttons:
      Hiccup: Fine — but remember, you wanted this... *PUNCH*
    • While Snotlout's lying unconscious with 2-3 less teeth, the twins lament that their latest plan failed due to their target being much tougher than he looks, but take consolation in the fact that they at least got to watch Snotlout get punched in the face.
  • Hiccup's reaction to being stuffed in a Bag of Kidnapping, unknowingly by his real enemies.

Shock And Awe

  • Loki Day returns. This time, the twins are outmatched. The episode culminates with the twins house placed on rocky outcrop. Needless to say, they're ready to forget about Loki day from now on.
    Tuffnut: Evil genius. Gotta admire it.
    Ruffnut: Admire it? I'm straight up jealous of it.
    Tuffnut: If I ever mention Loki day ever again, hold me down and pull all my nose hairs out.
    Ruffnut: Mmm, but that's what we do on our birthday.
    Tuffnut: Oh, yeah. Well, think of something painful and has do to with my nose. Do that instead. [Annoyed] Loki Day.
    Ruffnut: Heard that.
    Tuffnut: NO! [Thunk] I'm okay.

Edge of Disaster

  • When Astrid complains about the twins using dummies to get out of guard duty, Hiccup's reply is priceless.
    Hiccup: You know, those dummies could conceivably be just as effective as the twins.
    Astrid: Not funny.
    Astrid: I just don't understand why this doesn't make you completely insane!
    Hiccup: Because then there would be two crazy people in this conversation, and we'd probably never accomplish anything.
  • Barf & Belch tossing the last log in the pile down a cliff after the twins take care of the rest by accident. It's the proud expressions on their faces and their "head-butt of victory" that sells it.
  • When Hiccup, Johann, and Snotlout are preparing to rescue Fishlegs, Hiccup is the only one taking the mission seriously. Johann spends the entire time on the island either terrified, complaining, or both, and Snotlout goes full Deadpan Snarker about the plan.
    • Johann even gets in a moment of snark as well:
    Johann: Uh, Master Hiccup, I feel as though one more ride on (Meatlug) may turn my insides into my outsides.
  • Ruffnut totally not catching on to Heather's covert attempts to help her escape.
  • Everything Dagur has to say about Lars Number Two.
  • Astrid and Tuffnut imitating the voices of Hiccup (in Astrid's case), Stoick, Snotlout, and Fishlegs (in Tuffnut's case). Astrid mimicking Hiccup is a Call-Forward to the second movie, and Tuff's imitation of Fishlegs is him shouting, "I'm Fishlegs! This is how I sound! It's really me!"
  • The scene following the above has Astrid luring Dagur and some hunters toward dummies positioned behind trees. When they're hit with arrows, they release Zippleback gas, and then someone brings out a torch...
    Dagur: (sniffing) What's that smell? I know that smell. It's Zippleback gas! She was driving us right into a trap! (turns around and sees the torch) NO, NOT FLAMING --
    (scene cuts to Astrid flying above the forest as an explosion rises into the air)

A Time to Skrill

  • Dagur, seeing Hiccup and Toothless right after spotting the Skrill, wonders something:
    Dagur: Why would he lead a Skrill right to us?! It's not my birthday! (pauses, eyes widen) Is it?
  • Spitelout finally gets a bit of karma when he gets hit by a Skrill lightning blast and can't talk. It's doubly funny if you imagine David Tennant making the noises in the booth.

     Season 5 

Enemy of my Enemy

  • This exchange:
    Hiccup: Blue oleander can kill a dragon — how is purple any different?
    Dagur: Well, for one thing...
    Hiccup: Please don't say, "It's purple."
  • Dagur using his Evil Laugh at the most random and inappropriate times.

Crash Course

  • Meatlug drops her catapult stone while licking Fishlegs. Fishlegs tries to play it off as their dropping it off quickly, and judging by Hiccup's face it's not the first time this has happened.
  • When Ruff and Tuff inadvertently blow themselves up after getting hit with the Crasher's flammable mucus.
    • And directly before that:
    Hiccup: (warning them of the dragon) The mucus! Watch out for the mucus!
    Tuffnut: (sneezes) Sorry, had to get rid of that one.
  • When the group collapses the tunnel to try and trap the Crasher, Astrid remarks that "ugly" (the dragon) isn't going to make it to the Fireworm Queen's nest. Tuffnut's response is a genuinely horrified, "You guys are leaving me here?!"
  • The Viking version of Baa Baa Black Sheep, involving the kid threatening to beat up the salesman with his mace.

Follow the Leader

  • Fishlegs bangs a pair of axes together so the noise drives away the Albino Night Terrors. He also does it right next to Snotlout's head, making him go a bit loopy.
  • Fishlegs Dream Sequence, wherein he dreams Hiccup (sporting a ridiculously thick accent) naming Fishlegs the new leader of the Dragon Riders. Meatlug, who's sporting a crown, looks like she's about to shed tears of pride. Then Astrid, Ruffnut, and Gothi mention how handsome they think he is. Even Snotlout wears white and shouts "We love you Fishlegs!"

Turn and Burn

  • When they arrive at the storehouse and find it abandoned, we get this:
    Snotlout: I'm having Asia fondue. Something seems familiar.
    Hiccup: {beat) Wait, don't you mean deja vu?

Buffalord Soldier

A Grim Retreat

  • Snotlout's hilariously ecstatic, "Did someone die? Was it Fishlegs?!"
  • When Astrid is giving Hiccup a talking-to at the lagoon, Snotlout can be seen shoving Fishlegs in and gloating.
  • The twins both forcing down the insanely salty fish meal they made.
  • Stoick and Gobber managing to both get the idea they need to replace Tuffnut's chicken.
    • Stoick's plan for how to deal with the fact that the replacement chicken he found looks nothing like Chicken? Order Tuffnut to believe it is.
      Stoick (to the chicken): Hey, I'm not proud of it, but that's the plan. So stick to it!
  • When the riders are surrounded by their dragons and the camera is spinning around for a 360 view, all of the dragons are frozen in place. Best seen with Meatlug behind the riders at the beginning of the scene.
  • Snotlout calls Hiccup out:
    Snotlout: All I'm saying is we wouldn't be in this position if your tyrannical behavior due to your obsessive need to one-up Viggo hadn't driven our poor dragons to the brink of insanity. There, I said it.
    Tuffnut: Wow. That was both dramatically impressive and logically sound.
    Snotlout: Thank you Tuff.

To Heather or Not to Heather

  • While discussing everything Heather's been through:
    Hiccup: Yeah, I can't say I'd feel any different in her shoes.
    Snotlout: Shoe. Because you... (hops on one leg until he realizes how badly it's going over) Never mind.
  • Snotlout twice pops up to invite Heather to his hut, then gets set on fire by Hookfang offscreen.

Stryke Out

Tone Death

  • The helpless "Why me?" look on Hiccup's face as he watches Tuffnut attack Snotlout.
  • The entire time the gang tries to sing to the baby Deathsong.
    • Chicken, out of everyone in the group, inadvertently succeeds in calming the Deathsong first... and then gets encased in amber.
    • Heather as basically both the Naïve Newcomer and Only Sane Woman among the terrified riders.
    • Fishlegs is the only rider out of the group to emerge from his musical turn unscathed. Meatlug is not so lucky.
    • After he and Hookfang get hit with amber, Snotlout is all too happy to dump the baby dragon on the twins.
  • Snotlout angrily quips to Astrid to "take her comedy act on the road". She obliges:
    Astrid: How do you get a one armed Jorgenson out of a tree? You wave to him.
    Astrid: How do you sink a Jorgenson battleship? You put it in the water.
    Astrid: How do you confuse a Jorgenson? Put him in a round arena and tell him to go to the corner.
  • The baby Deathsong attempts to appeal to the adult, which isn't impressed and just smacks it across the clearing.

Between a Rock and a Hard Place

  • As they plummet out of the sky:
    Tuffnut: I regret nothing!
    Ruffnut: I regret everything!
  • After realizing the Quakens have become accustomed to their captivity, Tuffnut notes the same thing happened to his cousin in Stockholm.
  • Tuffnut noting that the fall didn't do anything to hurt him, claiming that his skull is too thick. Ruffnut demonstrates by hitting him over the head with a stick, which snaps... and sends him toppling to the ground.
    Tuffnut: I am hurt.

Last Auction Heroes

  • Snotlout has to infiltrate the Dragon Hunter's Auction, since he's the only one the Hunters won't recognize. That alone speaks for itself, but the best moment has to be Gobber being turned into his Beleaguered Assistant, and thus put up with his crap the entire time without breaking cover. The Death Glare that Gobber's giving the boy the entire time just screams; "When this is all over, I'm going to kill you."
  • When Snotlout is investigating Viggo's tent and comes across something interesting, Gobber makes his opinion of the curiosity known by using it to blow his nose.

Family on the Edge

  • While overcome with joy, Dagur hugs Hiccup, and notes that he's small and cuddly. Hiccup doesn't appreciate it.
  • When Hiccup wonders what would happen if they ever saw Dagur again, it's hilarious when Heather screams, "I'll split the father killer in two!" and sinks her axe into the table, simply because of how sudden and violent it is! And because of the others' reactions.

Defenders of the Wing Part 1

  • Tuffnut completely botching his attempt to play Hiccup's "lawyer".

     Season 6 

Defenders of the Wing Part 2

  • Any moment of Mala sizing up Snotlout as a potential suitor, and Snotlout fumbling to hide the fact he knows that she is way out of his league.
    • Hiccup's reaction to when he learns of the arrangement is one in it of itself.
    Hiccup: Wait. What? How is that a thing?
    Snotlout: Unlike you guys, she recognizes royalty when she sees it.
    Hiccup: Oh gods.
  • Mala demands that Hiccup leave his best to help fight the lava flow, so he selects Heather, Ruffnut and Tuffnut. Whilst Heather's competency is proved instantly, the twins fail to impress by Tuffnut taking one of the Defenders' blowguns and accidentally sucking the dart into his own throat. What makes this funnier is Snotlout slapping Tuffnut on the back of the head, causing him to spit the dart out into Ruffnut's forehead and knocking them both out.
  • Viggo suddenly thinking he's Darth Vader, putting his hand around his brother's throat when the latter annoys him. A guy who's three time his size. Ryker's complete non-reaction is priceless.
  • Mala admires the beauty of Hiccup and Toothless flying in perfect harmony, naturally causing Snotlout jealousy.
    Snotlout: You know he has one leg, right?

Gruff Around the Edges

  • The twins wake everyone up early by inventing a radio show. If that wasn't enough, Heather shrieks in horror at Astrid's bedhead.
  • When Tuff and Gruff are fighting in midair, Gruff makes an out-of-nowhere Shout-Out to Kung Fu Panda when he calls his attack.
    Gruffnut: Chinese finger move!
  • The return of Macy.

Midnight Scrum

  • The twins are actually insulted that only Hiccup has a bounty on his head, and spend the rest of the episode trying to convince other Vikings that they're wanted as well.
  • Hiccup mistakes some of (Formerly Silent) Sven's relatives as bounty hunters as they were quiet and shy folks, standing out amongst the cheering crowds. To cap it off, Hiccup botches their names while apologizing.
  • The Viking with hooks for hands. BOTH of them.
  • Hiccup momentarily chasing away the Dragon Hunters by scaring a flock of sheep into stampeding.

Not Lout

  • Snotlout is told that he isn't trustworthy. So what does he do? Return all the stuff he stole from the Twins over the years. When he tries to ask if that makes him trustworthy, the Twins point out that he stole it in the first place.
    Snotlout: You guys trust me now, right?
    Tuffnut: Trust is a delicate bird with feathers of silk. And yours is dead! (slams door shut)
    • Then after he leaves, the Twins discuss if they should return all the things they stole from him which leads to reveal shots that they had taken far more than he had. They decide not to, well aware of the Hypocritical Humor.
    Ruffnut: Our bird's dead too.
  • The brief hallucination of Snotlout's on the practice flight, imagining Hookfang speaking to him in Spitelout's voice.

Saving Shattermaster

  • Why were the generic Defenders of the Wing remodeled Heather and Hiccup? Because they use Defenders disguises at the Northern Market. However, Hiccup's peg leg gives him away.
  • The B-plot of Snotlout undergoing the Trials. While awesome for Snotlout in how he passes some of the tests, the crowner comes at the end. Throk shoots an arrow at Mala that Snotlout was supposed to take, but both of them misses so Mala just does an Arrow Catch and tells him he can't be king.
    • The kicker is that Mala then winks at Hiccup who's staring in shock, hinting that this was Just as Planned.
    • And of course, the meta joke that Mala is voiced by Mary, Queen of Scots, whose own search for a husband is rather more desperate.
  • The out of nowhere Shout-Out to Snakes on a Plane: "I have had it with these freaking eels in this freaking maze!"

The Longest Day

  • At the start, Stoick is happy about how the Midnight Sun results in much more productivity around Berk... then Gobber points out that by day eight they spend more time fighting each other than working because of sleep deprivation.
  • With everyone suffering from insomnia, the cast starts acting weird.
    • Gothi is seen "babbling" (obsessively scribbling on the floor) with a Thousand-Yard Stare.
    • Snotlout felt mood swings and starts laughing which turns to crying and says that he wants his mother.
    • Heather loses her coordination while trying to wash Windshear, soaking everyone with her water bucket. Eventually she successfully washes... a stationary rock that she thinks is a fussy Windshear.
    • Astrid becomes euphoric, which is to say relentlessly cheerful and optimistic. Complete with dancing, and spinning and endless gushing about how wonderful everything is. It's so freaky that seeing her makes Fishlegs worried they're all going to go insane. And then of course he starts getting paranoid...
    • Fishlegs' paranoia ends up being one of the funniest parts of the episode. Such as this exchange:
    Heather: Can you give me a hand, Fishlegs?
    Fishlegs: Hand? What do you mean by that?!
    Heather: What do you think I mean?
    Fishlegs: What do you think you mean?! (dramatic stare)
    Heather: (blinks in shock, then immediately walks away)
    • The twins start hallucinating. Objectively the funniest moment is when Tuffnut sees Ruffnut as a giant chicken (with her helmet and braids) and she starts beating him up.
    • Tuff points out that Ruff is starting to lose it because she's playing "Stack the Yak" with boars... when it's supposed to be played with sheep, and does a chicken dance to illustrate his point, as well as his Sanity Slippage.
  • Fed up by the above antics, the dragons eventually and unceremoniously dump their riders into the tunnel beneath the Dragon's Edge Arena to get some sleep. When Toothless and Hiccup arrive back at the Edge, the former follows suit.
  • Hiccup quotes Dagur when he succeeds in trapping two of the Shadow Wings, and double-takes at this.

Gold Rush

  • While in context it is horrifying, the reveal that the Dragon Hunters devised dragon-proof ships is hilarious as the capstone of a Running Gag of dragon proofing that began in "Have Dragon Will Travel" with dragon proof chains.


  • Macy's funeral. Especially when Ruffnut launches the arrow and completely misses, prompting Toothless to do the honors with a plasma blast instead.
  • Needing a cover story as to why they had a Gronckle Iron mace as no Dragon Hunter uses such, the Twins come up with a cover story about how they "took it from a Dragon Rider", specifically Hiccup, which escalates from there as they become local heroes for a short while.
    • Later, Hiccup gets to hear the story from the ironmason they told it to.
  • After Viggo finds out about the Twins being in his camp, he's absolutely positive it has to be part of some clever plan of Hiccup's. This lets Ruff troll him mercilessly as she really does have no information to give.
  • Tuffnut's Badass Boast when he reclaims Macy — "I have two favorite things! Yak jerky and kicking butt! And I don't have any yak jerky on me!"


  • Ruff is practicing to be Astrid's "seeing eye Viking" by leading a blindfolded Tuff around. She deliberately directs him to run off a cliff.
  • Being chased by an irritable Hookfang, how does Fishlegs get him to halt? Yells at him to stop, though this time it was actually directed at Hookfang.
  • Hiccup tries to deny Astrid from tagging along in the search for the dragons. We can only imagine what transpired.
    Hiccup: I am sorry. As leader, I am putting my foot down *crosses arms, brimming with confidence*
    Astrid: *glares*
    cuts to Hiccup and Astrid riding on Toothless, with Hiccup looking annoyed and Astrid holding a grin
    Hiccup: *to Toothless* Remind me never to put my foot down again.

Shell Shocked

  • How do they reveal that the Action Prologue was actually an Imagine Spot of Hiccup's plan to defeat Viggo? After Hiccup drops his one-liner, the scene cuts to Berk's Great Hall where Tuffnut is incredulous about Hiccup's choice of one-liner.
    • New one-liners becomes a Running Gag of the two parter.
    • When the twins each actually use one-liners on Viggo, they come out so out of context Viggo is outright confused.
    Viggo: Did I miss something?
    • After many failed attempts of thinking of one the twins just ask Viggo what a good one-liner would be when he is defeated, and he actually gives them one.
  • Another Running Gag? The Twins and Snotlout not understanding what is going on between Hiccup and Astrid, thinking that Hiccup is dying and has a gambling problem respectively, hence the time spent with Astrid.
  • A third Running Gag is Hiccup and Astrid getting multiple occurrences of Interrupted Intimacy by the other riders walking in on them during private romantic moments.
  • Somehow the show manages to roll all three gags into one scene. Most of the time when Hiccup and Astrid get an interrupted moment they are Adorkable and embarrassed about almost being caught, but when Tuffnut happens to do it to test one liners they are both visibly pissed.
    Tuffnut: Looks like she's got the mace, and I got the talons. So Viggo, it's game over and we haven't even...
    Hiccup & Astrid: [in unison with Death Glare] TUFFNUT!!!
    Tuffnut: Yeah you're right. I would have the mace. You know, not her. I mean, everyone knows I'm a mace man. Guilty as charged. Mace man at heart. Good lookin' out H. [Runs off]
    Hiccup: O.K. Uhh...that's awful.

     Season 7 

Living on the Edge

  • The gang losing sleep over the volcano's constant tremors, which are said to have been going on for several months, and the twins griping that the volcano should just get it over with and erupt already.
  • The way Krogan disposes of the dragon hunter that questions his dragon-capturing methods is hilarious, if only for the way the dragon hunter reacts.
    Hunter: (clearly expecting a punishment) "I can leave? Just like that?"
    Krogan: "Just like that. Safe travels, my friend."
    Hunter: (delightedly runs off, only to be immediately killed)
  • The twins have their longest running string of intellectual commentary yet as they spend much of the episode talking about the intricacies of symbiotic and parasitic relationships, all the while engaging in their typical antics.
    • They actually correctly identify parasitism as a type of symbiosis. The way they get the definition precisely on the nose makes it all the funnier.
  • Snotlout freaking out about his S being ruined by the lava. Particularly because when he says "you know how attached I am to my S!" it sounds like he's saying ass.


  • There is a rather hilarious sequence where Fishlegs attempts to soothe Astrid's fury after he somehow licks her hand, offering to help her with a betrothal gift for Hiccup.
    Fishlegs: Who knows Hiccup better than I do?
    Astrid: ME.
    Fishlegs: Good point.
    • It's hilarious that Fishlegs thought that the answer would be someone else when speaking to Hiccup's future wife. He probably didn't think when he asked the question.
    • The funniest thing in the episode is that Tuffnut cries like a baby after hearing the word tears.
    Snotlout: And you! [turns to Tuff] Tears.
    Tuffnut: [starts bawling]

Something Rotten on Berserker Island

  • Snotlout's name is mangled throughout the entire episode.
  • Dagur's lame attempt at a joke during his big speech, and that he's the only one that genuinely finds it funny.
    "It is in times like these that I remember what my Great-Uncle Haggard used to say. 'There we were, three against a thousand - toughest three we ever fought!'" (hysterical laughter)

Return of Thor Bonecrusher

  • Viggo's scar is definitely nasty, and had the show aired ten years earlier, that's all it would be. But since it didn't, it's hard to look at the new Viggo without thinking, "Your Zuko costume's pretty good!"
  • Fishlegs oohing and aahing over Thor Bonecrusher's heroic deeds, as retold by Snotlout.

No Dragon Left Behind

  • At the episode's climax, Hiccup and Snotlout try to free Garff from the amber wall he created to protect himself from Slitherwings, with Snotlout carefully collecting all shards so as to not make any noise and wake them up. When the entire wall cracks and falls down, Snotlout, with a hilarious expression on his face, just drops every shard he's holding too.


  • Hiccup stops Astrid from attacking Throk only to get beaten up by her.
  • Tuffnut fakes his death as to not to impact Ruffnut's decision to leave with Throk. When he's found out by Hiccup and Astrid he pretends he's a ghost, with appropriate music playing in the background.
    • He spends the entire rest of the episode pretending he's dead, too.

Searching for Oswald and Chicken

  • After Chicken's disappearance, Tuffnut laments that finding her would be so much easier, if only they had a dragon that was good at tracking things and liked chicken. Astrid and Stormfly (the latter of which is precisely that dragon) just give him a look of pure exasperation.

Sins of the Past

  • The Viking that sells Snotlout chicken feed has a Verbal Tic that makes him sound exactly like a chicken at random points during his speech, complete with flapping arms.
  • Snotlout attacking Krogan with the aforementioned chicken feed.

    Season 8 

In Plain Sight

  • What does Dagur pull out to barter for his Dragon Eye lens?
    Dagur: Gronckle iron sword?
    Fishlegs: Hey, that's mine! Where did you get that?
    Dagur: Fishlegs, I used to attack you every other week.
  • From the way Hiccup reacts to Ruffnut and Tuffnut's bickering and Johann's WTF reaction, he's gotten way too used to Thorston absurdism.
    Johann: My Thor. That [the twins' blade-crossing, which changed from daggers, to maces, to a fish and scrap metal] descended into the absurd rather quickly.
    Hiccup: Actually, it took longer than I thought it would.
  • The way Johann's tone suddenly changes as he realizes he's too late for his big reveal moment: "How do you think it's been for me?! Pretending all these years to actually care about you and your little friends. The number of times I wanted to just scream at the top of my... and yet I'm wondering, why aren't you more surprised?"
  • Johann complaining that Hiccup has "a most annoying habit of not dying when you're supposed to."

No Bark, All Bite

  • Trying to talk to a riled up Stoick the Vast is like asking a hurricane to stop blowing.
    Stoick: "I'll split his bony butt in two!"
  • This:
    Snotlout: "Hey, Chief? We had a long, slow flight in. A little power nap could really hit the sp- "
    Stoick: "WHAT?! What was that? A power nap, you say?"
    Snotlout: "Who said that? We don't need no stinkin' power naps! (Yawns) I am ready to go, Chief.
  • And this:
    (Stoick uproots the whole tree and takes it)
    Hiccup: "Whoa! Uh, we need bark. Not the whole tree."
    Stoick: "[Laughs] Oh, that's a good one, son. Telling your old man how to gather bark."
  • Still mad at each other, Hiccup and Stoick are riding with a huge gap between them, not speaking or looking at each other... so their dragons fly closer together to force them to make up.
  • Hiccup has no idea how to take out the dragon-proof ballista, since a plasma blast had no effect on it. Toothless gets the idea on his own to just knock the thing over with his head. It works.

Chain of Command

  • Snotlout trying to correct the problem he started by teasing Minden:
    Snotlout: She gave you the most important job of all, to defend the whole island while she was gone.
    Minden: But you said I was passed over for a blonde.
    Snotlout: And you listened to me? I'm an idiot — ask anyone.
  • A Terrible Terror flies into Fishlegs' face.
    Fishlegs: The face. It's always the face.

Loyal Order of Ingerman

  • Fishlegs hesitates outside the twins' door, wondering if he should knock. He decides not to, but he spent so much time talking to himself that he woke them up anyway.
    Tuffnut: Whatever you're doing, do it faster.
  • The little kids swarming over Toothless, "the unholy offspring of lightning and death itself," like he's a cute little kitten or puppy. Yet, there's something familiar about it...
  • Fishlegs Admiring the Abomination when they're attacked by a Dramillion.
    Fishlegs: It has a lava blast and a magnesium blast?! That's incredible!
    Astrid: Fight now, geek out later!

    Fishlegs: He's probably heading back to his pack. We should follow him.
    Astrid: So now we're looking for a pack of aggressive dragons with multiple attacks?
    Fishlegs: Isn't it great?! Come on.

A Gruff Separation

  • Gruffnut finally pointing out that "Toothless" is "a terrible name for this dragon."
  • After getting fed up with their dispute, Toothless flies between the twins and slaps them with his tail multiple times.

Triple Cross

  • Ruff and Tuff's episode-long record breaking. Even more hilarious and awesome when Hiccup pays it off with the rescue from Krogan and Johann's forces.
  • Hiccup's reaction when he finds out Viggo's plan is to singlehandedly capture a Skrill: "Are you INSANE?!"
    • Viggo once again calls Hiccup on his lack of knowledge of oleander types, when he admits that he lied about poisoning Toothless.

Darkest Night

  • Hiccup and Astrid's Aside Glance to each other when they hear about Snotlout and the twins' What If? scenarios.
  • The Twins "Full Loki" scenario had the Riders never left Berk includes:
    • Their prank on Snotlout from "Dragon Eye of the Beholder Part 1".
    • Them scaring Gothi into falling off her house and getting her caught on several clothes lines.
    • Them causing Stormfly to go on a rampage off-screen, which causes Astrid to get out of her house to investigate. When she does, they trip her as she walks down the stairs, wherein she lands face first into a bunch of fish.
    • Stoick gets it the worst. He tries to get some soup only for snakes to jump out of the pot. Then the pot gets stuck on his head, with more snakes inside. Then when he runs out of his house, he gets run over by a boar stampede lead by Astrid. And during all this, all kinds of insanity happens in the background, including Fishlegs being chased by a barrel, Tuffnut getting his helmet stolen by some Terrors, and a random viking in a barrel falling out of the sky.
    • This all somehow leads to the Haddocks and the Jorgensons declaring a fish-throwing civil war on each other (with Ruff and Tuff being on each respective side). Which allows Johann, a still evil Dagur, and the rest of the Dragon Flyers to invade Berk.

How well does it match the trope?
