Recap / Dragons Riders Of Berk S 8 E 13 King Of Dragons Part 2

Go To

The Riders race to the home of the true King of Dragons. But the Flyers are already there, and they soon come face to face with the legendary creature.


  • Back for the Finale: Garff leads a large swarm of wild dragons in freeing the captive Singetails, under the orders of the Berserker Bewilderbeast. Also in attendance are the allies the Riders have encountered - the Wingmaidens, the Berserkers and the Defenders all help protect the Bewilderbeast from Johann's army. Eruptodon, Screaming Death and what looks like Thornado and Bim, Bang and Boom also show up.
  • Call-Forward: Drago's scene (indicating that he does not yet possess a Bewilderbeast, which is what he was paying Johann to find), the Wingmaidens knowing Valka is the safest person to leave such a rare dragon egg (and not spoiling the reveal if you were watching the series before the second film), and the reason the team leaves the Edge is that Berk needs their protection. Hiccup also never actually sees the Bewilderbeast, to comply with his not recognizing one in the second film.
    • Hiccup even expects in the closing narration that his father will try to hand the reins of chief to Hiccup "very soon" foreshadowing his death.
  • The Cameo/Continuity Cameo:
    • Valka, Hiccup's mother, has a non-speaking one at the end of the episode in her masked form seen at the beginning of the second movie, picking up the Bewilderbeast egg that Hiccup and Toothless rescued, which the Wingmaidens leave for her.
    • Drago Bludvist, the Big Bad of the second movie, is also shown at the end, as Krogan's boss; when he learns that Krogan failed to capture the King of Dragons for him, Drago orders for him to be executed.
  • Gondor Calls for Aid: The roar of the Bewilderbeast calls in most of dragons seen through the entire series for the final battle.
  • Grand Finale: To the TV series.
  • Hollywood Kiss: Hiccup and Astrid's first kiss of this episode qualifies as this.

  • Kill It with Ice: The Bewilderbeast to Johann, as Johann's final fate is being frozen solid, while trying to kill Hiccup, by the King of Dragons's ice breath.
  • My Sister Is Off-Limits!: Tuffnut doesn't approve of Snotlout flirting with Ruffnut.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Johann gives Hiccup a brief one before pulling out one of his throwing knives to finish him, but this pause allows Hiccup to get the upper hand.
  • No Man Should Have This Power: The Dragon Eye is just too dangerous in the wrong hands to be worth keeping around, so Hiccup decides to destroy it and the Dragon Eye 2.
  • Psychic Powers: The Berserkers' Bewilderbeast and its Mind Control.
  • Rapid-Fire "No!": When Krogan manages to use the bolas Hiccup shot at him to knock the Bewilderbeast's egg off the cliff, the latter lets one out chasing after it.

  • They Do: Dagur and Mala marry at the end of the episode.
  • Wedding Bells... for Someone Else: In the "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue, the riders are all attending Dagur and Mala's wedding, the framing and Hiccup's voice over implying to be his and Astrid's wedding before panning out and proving otherwise. Though by the end of the third film, Hiccup and Astrid do get their wedding.
    Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III: As for the lovebirds... [Shows Hiccup and Astrid kissing with a pair of wedding rings, only to reveal Dagur and Mala putting on the rings instead] No, those lovebirds.
  • Wrecked Weapon: A lot of weapons are destroyed in the battle of Berserker Island, most notably Inferno Mk 2 is snapped in two after Hiccup tries to use it to climb up a cliff.
  • You Have Failed Me: Krogan's master finally makes an appearance, and promptly has Krogan sentenced to death for not being able to bring back the Bewilderbeast.
  • Zerg Rush: What happens in the end to the Dragon Hunters.

How well does it match the trope?
