Just, recently I decided to start hatching dragons to name after the main crew's dragons, make use of those skins that I just have sitting in my customization inventory, gathering dust, and just made me remember how much I don't exactly like Meatlug's skin.

 

Skin Meatlug

 

Actual Meatlug...

 

She's much more dull than the skin and isn't covered in yellow dots, rather purple dots. It's been like this since the first film and the show.

 

'

 

The Meatlug in game with that skin is rather just the basic gronkle kind of colors instead of, well, Meatlug herself

 

Maybe it's just me, but it just feels kinda bothersome lol. I'd say it's because I've just grown to love Meatlug a lot and wish she had a better skin than just the basic gronkle look, I want her purple dots :').

Not a big thing I know, I'm not expecting it to ever be changed unfortunately and definitely want things to be fixed first, but just want to point it out I guess lol.

I remember also thinking that

I remember also thinking that whenever she appeared for a quest, that there was something just not quite right with her, those weren't her colors :( but like you said I doubt its a priority if it is in a list of fixes.

Unrelated but that second picture of Meatlug is adorable, I can't get over how much of a puppy she looks like <3

Dragons I own and love as if they were my children:

(I didn't plan on having this many dragons lmao, so here's the short list and below that is the detailed one if you feel like it. The dragons are the last part of the signature)

Grandcanyon - Male Sandwraith

Firebringer - Female Monstrous Nightmare

Iceberg - Male Groncicle

Grimmer - Female Whispering Death

Shockjaw - Male Skrill

Seafoam - Male Scauldron

Swampdiver - Female Mudraker

Torchnight - Male Monstrous Nightmare

Ironclaw - Female Armorwing

Acidrain - Female Flame Whipper

Goldwing - Female Razorwhip

Sirencall - Male Deathsong

Shiverbeast - Female Stormcutter

Oceaneyes - Female Raincutter

Bonfire - Male Monstrous Nightmare

Bass & Wood - Male Hideous Zippleback

Pinkspark - Female Singetail

Lonquimay - Male Eruptodon

 

Grandcanyon - Male Sand Wraith

The first dragon that Parakeet owned, since is the one she helped escape from the Hunters. Basically the Dad Friend of the Dragons, endless pacience and loyalty. Loves to bury himself in sand, and often runs around in two legs

 

Firebringer - Female Monstrous Nightmare

Not the brightest Monstrous Nightmare in the bunch, but she tries, she is the first dragon Parakeet ever trained since hatched, she acts like an annoying big sister and likes to bite a lot, an habit that she got from when she was a baby, and Parakeet never corrected. She also saves Parakeet from falling a lot

 

Iceberg - Male Groncicle

Enjoys Berks climate, doesnt particularly enjoy Firebringer's attention, likes to chill (hehe) with Parakeet rather than do flips in the air, prefers islands with snow, and is a picky adventurer. If dragons can eyeroll, he's doing it all the time. He just doesn't have the patience to deal with his new trainer but still does, cause he appreciates the help she offered him

 

Grimmer - Female Whispering Death

When Valka gave Parakeet a Whispering Death egg, she wasnt very sure to be able to train her properly, since Whispering Deaths are terrifying. Now she thinks her Nightmare Eyes are endearing and even climbs into her mouth to show how gentle she can be. Although Grimmer is prone to jealousy she has a soft spot for Seafoam, whom, alongside Parakeet, she saved from a sinking Outcast ship as an egg

 

Shockjaw - Male Skrill

A very hard to read guy, Parakeet isnt sure of his personality, since he doesnt seem to show any, even tho he got him as an egg. He loves to fly and do tricks, but outside it, he's a mystery. If there's anything Parakeet learned from him, is that he is competitive, and enjoys racing, so Shockjaw is her main go to dragon from when she wants to race

 

Seafoam - Male Scauldron

He likes to spit his boiling hot water at people when he's happy. Look out. Parakeet has her shield in hand at all times because of this. He's learning to just create bubbles, but it's a work in progress. Considers Grimmer his mom, mostly because she doesn't let other dragons aproach him much

 

Swampdiver - Female Mudraker

Loves to swim around, with all of her family members, and sleep on her trainer's chest (wich was cute when she was small...) she probably believes Parakeet is another small dragon since she always tries to drag her into the water and not let her go. That or she's trying to drown her... Let's hope for the first one

 

Torchnight - Male Monstrous Nightmare

Altho not the first Monstrous Nightmare she trained, Torchnight prooved to be a very hard case to work with, since the dragon would just not listen to her and go off to his own business, often hitting her with his tail without realizing. The only command he seems to understand on land is when Parakeet hits her chest to call him, wich is when he just launches himself towards her. It was cute when he was younger and it worked, now it's coming back to haunt her and pin her to the ground 

 

Ironclaw - Female Armorwing

Because of the abuse of the Hunters, Ironclaw is very shy and defensive, but with care and the other dragons help she's coming to be a very curious girl. She loves to watch Parakeet work and will often try to take her helmet off to put into her armor

 

Acidrain - Female Flame Whipper

A mischievious prankster who loves to play hide and seek with her trainer, she always cheats by hiding in places Parakeet can't access on her own. Likes to surprise and scare dragons and people alike, as well as sleep on the job. Loses her tail all the time whenever she gets scared

 

Goldwing - Female Razorwhip

Responsible and serious, almost doesnt like to play, only when she's sure Parakeet is done with any quests she has, talk about the mom of the group. Rarely plays with the other dragons, gets along the best with Grandcanyon, silently judges the rest, come on girl, you gotta have more fun.

 

Sirencall - Male Death Song

A sweet, sweet boy. Playful and kind, like a little brother for the rest of the dragons, also a little prankster, he likes to sing to lure other dragons, and then just flies around with a flock of dragons behind him. Kind of hard to explain to other trainers that he's a bit excentric, to not say otherwise. If fed up Parakeet will start to sing real loud to shut him up, wich  offends him but succesfully gets the point across

 

Shiverbeast - Female Stormcutter

Surprisingly gets scared of storms, she can't fly through one, Parakeet learned this the hard way, loves to swim and "fly" underwater, a great explorer of the great seas. Well, the sea during storms is scary, perhaps that's the reason. Rather small for her breed, but she's also young, so it's to be expected, she eats as much as the others after all

 

Oceaneyes - Female Raincutter

 

Like most Raincutters, Oceaneyes loves to fly through rain (looking at you Shiverbeast), and do tricks, the only problem is that in the rain she becomes more slick and it gets hard to get a good grip on her, so no tricks allowed until we get a saddle for you girl, she gets moody if the weather isn't optimal for her, if there's high winds, or too much sun she rather sleep. Loves to fly off in the morning dew, and Parakeet would love to join her, if she was a morning gal. "Also, hehe, duck feet" Parakeet, probably

 

Bonfire - Male Monstrous Nightmare

Much younger than the other Monstrous Nightmare, he is like the spoiled little brother. A master at playing victim, likes to sleep on top of Firebringer and Torchnight, even when neither of them like it most of the time he gets his way. Likes adventuring but gets scared really easily, so Parakeet can't fly with him through the night. When he lights himself on fire his flames are weaker than most other Nightmares, Parakeet still doesnt understand why.

 

Bass & Wood - Male Hideous Zippleback

Bass is the gas, Wood is the spark, they hate each other and are constantly snapping and trying to bite the other, Parakeet has to pet both at the same time if she wants to have peace. They barely get anything done, including flying, except when they're practicing with Astrid and Parakeet, that's the only time they'll work together

 

Pinkspark - Female Singetail

She's more wild than trained, absolutely refuses to get a saddle on her, so Parakeet has given up on that. Sometimes sleeps in the stables, sometimes flies away for entire weeks before coming back to Parakeet, needles to say she was terrified at first and didnt sleep right until she knew Pinkspark was safe. Equal times playful and serious, gets reasonably along with the other dragons.

 

Lonquimay - Male Eruptodon

He likes napping more than he does anything else, and Parakeet can relate to that. He doesnt often do anything else other than sleeping or eating, but Parakeet likes to fly around with him when he feels like it, cause she feels high and mighty on top of the dragon. Other than that, she also enjoys napping with him or just reading some books while resting alongside him.

Yeah I agree. It used to

Yeah I agree. It used to bothered me a lot to. I have a gronckle that I want to color exactly like meatlug but upon seeing the color of the skin I figure I should just color her myself. I found out that make her light orange-pink (can't really go for purple since it will make the entire body too dark :/) is more accurate than using the skin.

(Meatlug skin vs my colorization)

I honestly want to thank you, your little pic of your own little remake helped me try myself to try and remake her better and I think I did a good job :D

 

 

Disappointing how players can remake Meatlug better than the devs lol
