ABOUT MY FAVORITE DRAGONS:

Cloud is a female Titan Deadly Nadder. She's brave, but not a fighter. She always sits on Scale trying to be her "parrot", as Scale would let her sit on her shoulder when she was a baby Nadder. It hurt sometimes. As she got bigger, she just completely started to sit on Scale.

 

FeatherSky is a female Woolly Howl. She's a great fighter ad a gentle flyer. When she was a baby, her fur just covered her whole body, head to claw to tail to wings. She looked like a pink fluffball. As she grew older, she molted ALOT, meaning a lot of fur for Scale to clean up. Feather now looks like a normal Woolly Howl.

 

King is a large male Timberjack. When he was little, his roar was just a squeak, maybe even a screech, so quiet and tiny. Once he started growing though, it started getting louder. Once he became an adult, if he ever got a large wound, Scale would have to go outside, put on some earmuffs or something to block out his roar to deal with the painful situation, due to his roar being so loud. 

 

Wonder is a small female Sand Wraith. She loves flying and she's a little...crazy. When she was little she would zoom around the house at 3 AM like a cat. When she was a juvenile/teen, she would try to fly but always got herself hurt. Once she learned to fly and became an adult, Scale occasionally looses her from night to night, only to look up after sunrise to see her flying, chasing Terrible Terrors.

Dude. Watch it. You will understand all of our references and honestly, RTTE is growing up with the audience. It might be a kids show but it conveys deep messages that everyone can enjoy. The writing isn't cheesy. It is realistic and natural, I don't feel that it moves along too fast or too slow. Then, do some digging, see if you can find Riders of Berk and Defenders of Berk. Netflix seems to have forgotten about those two. You need to see those to understand some of the terms and dragons Species shown in RTTE like the screaming death and dragon root.

Wolf

 Art was done by Fireflash

Wolf is my in-game character. Her full name is 'Wolf and Star'. She takes on my own personality, which is quite similar to that of Lynx. During quests, Wolf loves to muck around and try to break the system by utilizing glitches- just for laughs, but she always produces reliable results. She is a fair Viking and she never uses glitches for her own personal gain. Some of my profile info will be listed below:.............

Characters:

 

 

 

 

Lynx

 Art was done by DuskDayBreak

Lynx is bold and loud. She is like Luna Lovegood in the sense that she is rather... odd. Loud, shameless and weird. She is more animal-like than human. Lynx enjoys being flashy, showing off her skills. Once she sets her mind to something, she is naturally good at it. The problem is that she loses focus easy and doesn't like setting herself to standards. She craves adventure and can grow bored easily. She is particularly fast on her feet but has low stamina levels. She is strong and tall for her age. Lynx is stubborn and laid-back most of the time. She does not like to follow orders. Some of her skills include: being double jointed, the ability to be able to climb almost any surface, very good at mimicking animal sounds and is EXTREMELY good at sneaking around. However, there is a side to Lynx that she does not show very often. She is very lazy and selfish at times, mainly because she lacks compassion towards humankind, caring more about dragons and animals more so than humans. This tendency causes her to be merciless in the face of battle.

 

 

..............................Lyra

 .....................Art was done by Marg The Loony and Chameishida

Lyra is very sheltered and shy. She suppressed her emotion and looks down on those who do are emotional. Lyra can be rudely sarcastic at times and accidentally offend someone. Don't expect a public display of remorse. This does not mean she is feelingless though, she feels emotion, but, she is just very insecure about it. She does not like showing weakness or personal attachment, more insecurity, and less sociopathy. Though in fights, she doesn't appear to have a sense of honor and isn't afraid to fight dirty. Lyra is willing to do anything to ensure her well being, and the well being of her mother. Which could be a weakness. She values her self-preservation. She usually has her hood masking her pale delicate face, which sunburns easily and long hair.

 

 

 

Nyx

 Art was done by DuskDayBreak

One of Nyx's most defining traits is her brash and sarcastic attitude towards everything that breathes. She is the type of girl who does not have to do much to stand apart from the crowd. However, Nyx is no way an extrovert, the reason why she puts herself in social situations is purely one of two reasons, the first one being is that she wants to go people watching. Where she sits in some corner and watches people, how they react and their social cues. She just observes them, untangles their motives and finds their interests. The second reason is that she wants to show up the competition, along with being stubborn, Nyx is a show-off. The problem is, natural talent can only get you so far. Because of her years from people watching, she has become very keen on observations. Smarter than the average person, she is able to look at any given Viking and deduce a thing or two about them. Sort of like Sherlock Holmes but not nearly as skilled. With her great intelligence, comes social anxiety. Nyx buried this under layers of brashness but, this insecurity can be sorted out by the way she avoids social and emotional get-togethers. Due to her inability to express her social anxiety, Nyx finds herself at a lack of friends. She usually plays this off as her not wanting any friends but sometimes, when a dragon is your only friend, you can get lonely. The result, she makes a lot of enemies. Usually because of her showoff-ness and Brash attitude, and sarcasm. In reality, Nyx wants some friends, but she sees this as a weakness and as part of her insecurities which she buries deep inside of her and does not let anyone see. She's not edgy, she's just misguided.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Aeryn

 Art was done by Tosilohi

Aeryn also has a sense of show-off-ness, an over-the-top, dramatic character. She takes any given situation, brandishes it with a flare of sarcasm and performs, drawing attention to herself all the while managing to act edgy or sweet, or however she wanted to be perceived. This need of hers to put on a show made her invaluable to the man while she was on his side. Like the theatre kid she should be, Aeryn has expertly crafted this skill of taking on different personas, and she isn't afraid to add in some cliche drama to her dialogue and actions. Constantly referencing pop-culture, Aeryn is interesting, but the tiring person to be around. The problem with her extroverted, boldness is that few get to witness the actual Aeryn, not one of her many characters. In a sense, it is quite similar to the multifaceted personality disorder, only, Aeryn recognizes her many personas. She chooses not to show anyone her true colors due to some insecurities. These different personalities are the shields she has put up for emotional protection. With Aeryn, you never know if her reactions are genuine or just part of the show.

Yeah, they took it down from Netflix, you would of had to watch it while it was still going on. Youd have time wach it on Hulu or Amazon. Or else, you'd be missing over 5 entire seasons, I think. I'm not sure how many seasons are in Defenders of Berk and Riders of Berk.

(Thunder, by Katarile. TYSM)

 

Thunderbird is a very strong and fearless character. She sails the skies with her trusted dragon, Smugde, and touches the seas with her heart. Her father was a sailor of the Løken tribe on an island called Kalfa. Boats have always been a big part of Thunder's life and adventuring is natural to her. In fact, she lives to travel and explore. She never stays in one place for to long because she believes there's to much she hasn't seen. She is fierce, intelligent and an excellent strategist. She loves to learn and is quick to learn it. She can find her way out of tight spots with ease. She is also an excellent axemen. She is swift, agile and flexible. You'll most often see her training on a large sea stack while Smugde either plays with any animal or dragon nearby or sleeping in the shade. She is very adaptable and fairly easygoing, yet, she does have a temper and is not afraid to show it. She will storm off or even give you the silent treatment if you make her really angry. She does not trust easily but will be loyal and kind if you earn it. Dragons trust her relatively quickly with the help of her Hobblegrunt who is kind to all species of dragons as long as they are fairly kind to him. But he does not trust people as easily. in fact, he does not trust people at all. It took Thunderbird two years to earn his full trust. Now they are in separable, they fly in the sky and touch the seas with their hearts, as one.

Yes...maybe

Eh...I think it might be worthwhile. How "aware" of you are plot holes when watching something, and exactly how much do you love the movies?

 

Basically, it's about as canon to the movies as the games? It gets a bunch of stuff wrong and doesn't always have characters in-character and downright ignores events and character development that occurred in the films. It's littered with plot holes and sequences that don't make any sense and it's idea of character development within the show is to have a character turn around and change one day. They also retcon backstories all over the place, even within their own narrative. And it relies more on plot twists than logic, taking turns that make no sense for the sake of tension or just to surprise you. Setups often feel half-baked at best. If you think about how its economics or politics are supposed to work or now the timeline is supposed to match up with the films, you will break the franchise. Or your brain. Either one. In a lot of ways, it's really not well-written.

 

With that said, in a lot of ways, it also is well-written. It knows how to make tension, even if it doesn't make sense, and it knows how to catch you up in the moment so you might not even notice it. Heck, I've seen many people who really don't notice how little sense it makes because it's just that good at sucking you in. They do hit on some deep themes, and though they're often undermined by the nonsensical plot, they're also sometimes really solid or at least noteworthy. The characters are legitimately fun, even when their arches don't always flow, and you really do have a sense of their comradery. And there are some legitimately emotional moments. The new dragons introduced in it are cool, of course! And the humor is on point! Joke after joke lands; really comedy gold! The animation is also amazing, really stellar for just a TV show. Overall, just a lot of fun to watch. It's a bit like a bag of perfectly crisp potato chips; not much nutritional substance, but it goes down so very well. I say it's worth the watch for the dragons, the humor, the thrills, and of course, all the in-jokes and discussions on the forum. I personally like the first movie a little too much to be okay with some of the nonsensical writing and character decisions, and I really can't call it a good show or even say I always like it. But cynical as I am, I watch every season, and I'm still entertained enough to find it worth the watch. You just got to think of it as kind of a company-approved fanfiction featuring more of the wider world in the franchise and more of its dragons. Again, a bit like the games.

I was wondering when you'd show up with your well-planned argument explaining differing views. Hello.

 

I do agree with what you have to say, I usually do not notice the plot holes Because I try my best not to over analyze however, a few set me off. When it was stated that Tuffnut cannot say tears without crying, then, the next episode he says tears without crying, I was the slightest but ticked. Then there is the Johann Conundrum, which, I'd rather not explain further due to spoilers. You know what I mean. That... I almost threw my toothless plushie at the TV screen.

Honestly, I specifically

Honestly, I specifically didn't read other's comments so it wouldn't be "differing" from anyone's specific view. Just wanted to give an honest opinion and thorough review of the work. If you're going to watch something that's 5 seasons long, you need to know the rabbit hole you're crawling into. XD Especially one of such mixed quality. Got to know what you like and know if that's your cup of tea.

"Cows live in herds, you unyielding maniac."

Honestly?

Yeah.

I've been watching this show ever since the very morning of the release of Season 1. And let me tell you, it just gets better. Now, I apologize that I can't review it critically, and I'm sorry that I probably put my writing career to shame by overlooking the show's problems. But I just gotta say...do it. Because I h*cking love this show. It gets funnier, it gets more interesting, the new characters they introduce are some of my absolute FAVORITES, and just...the story. It's fun and totally captivating, man. I mean, I'd say watch it for ma bois Viggo and Dagur ALONE, but that's just me. I love them. Sorry, that's beside the point. Anyway.

I guess...if you like dragons, HTTYD, hot villains, and fun shows, then heck yeah!

Taco cat is...taco cat spelled backwards.

My dear Fox, you know me too well. Hehe.

Actually, my friends and I were just discussing this. The second someone mentions RTTE, I teleport behind them and the theme music starts blaring over unknown speakers. It's disturbing an alarming when Squiid randomly appears through thin air because someone started talking about her show.

Oh yeah...I can say nothing bad about it. I can't. It's my weakness.

Oh no! You just started my 'Geek Mode'.

      Where to start? R.T.T.E. is SO much better that Defenders or Riders of Berk in my mind. The look of the show is sharper and the stories are so much more AWESOME! The plot twists are sudden and mostly unseen, the bad guys are crazy and pure evil, yet you like them for just how they act.

 

     The timeline is, I admite, a little weird. I have luckily found a way around it. First off, the Riders and Defenders show take place in a years time. R.T.T.E. is supposed to take place three years after that (four years after the first movie). My advice, ignore this statement, they rounded up. It's really only been two and a half years. The entire R.T.T.E. show takes place in about a years time. Then, in the start of H.T.T.Y.D.2, it's stated that it's been 5 years since the first movie. To have the timeline work, it has got to have been 5 1/2 years.

 

  You've stated that you have not seen Riders or Defenders of Berk. My advice, invest in the show and just buy it. They are not as good as Race To The Edge, but you won't understand everything in R.T.T.E. if you don't watch those two shows first (and they are only a season each, 40 episodes in all). For example (no true spoilers), Dagur and Heather are HUGE parts in R.T.T.E. but, if you don't watch the Riders and Defenders, these charecters will seem a lot less cool.

 

     The stories in Riders of Berk are kind of too kid freindly, if you ask me, and the main bad guy is truly not that evil (think of him as an EVIL STOIC.) In Defenders of Berk, the stories are also really kidish, but not bad. But Race To The Edge is so NOT kidish. I mean, people AREN'T getting chopped down left and right, but it still is much more serious action.

 

      All in all, watch the show. It is an epic addition to the HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON saga, full of furious battles, character development, comedy gold, and villains you will remember forever.

     Hi, I'm Lack Lunason. I'm called that because I lack many things, and I'm a lunatic. I just put son on the end to make it sound more like a viking name. I'm also a Christ follower.

 

      Here are just a few things that I am:

  1. A procrastinator.
  2. Nice (mostly).
  3. Kind (don't listen to those that say otherwise).
  4. Adventurous.
  5. Lazy.
  6. A dreamer.
  7. And I'm slightly crazy.

     I've been around SoD for a long time. I think I was one of the first thousand to leave Berk and sail to the school. I'm happily part of the bold can known as POTATO BROTHERS. I have over four-thousand trouphies, although, I don't like racing much. On the other hand, I'm a master farmer.

 

     I will spare you the details of how much I like HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON and just skip to my favorite things  about HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON. My favorite dragon would probably be the Terrible Terror. My favorite viking is Tuffnut. My favorite villain is actually not a villain any longer. It's Dagur.

 

  On the ranking on the forum, I've completed/on the following: Jarl, Forager, Wilderness Explore, Viking Warrior, Dragon Trainer, Drott, Dragon Master,Chief.

 

Now onto some random stuff. This part will grow over time.

In another time, another place, I could have been a King....

But in my castle's ruined towers the lonely seabirds sing.....

I burned up my Tomorrows, I cannot go back ever....

But I am still a Hero....and a Hero is.......FOREVER!"

"Cows live in herds, you unyielding maniac."

Hiya~!

Don't mind me, just found a part of your comment a wee bit interesting...

You mentioned all the villains are "crazy and evil". Well, one of them WAS for a while (not gonna spoil for anyone though :P even though it's been out for...forever haha), but the one, in particular, I think of was the head antagonist for quite a few seasons and he's not really crazy nor evil. Actually, he's my favorite! 

Viggo, crazy? Nah. In fact, if Hiccup hadn't trained dragons, what he's doing is totally normal and could be considered worthy, if not even the sport of gentlemen. Before Hiccup, Berk would've been all for it. Which brings me to consider...does Viggo really consider himself evil? No, I doubt it. Sure, he's done certain things that were less than admirable and likely stem from some form of greed, but the original root of his purpose would be considered respectable, not really...evil. It's only considered evil by Hiccup, and us of course, because he has a different viewpoint. Which kind of alludes to one of the newer episodes and the talk about changing perspectives...but alas, I've gone on a rabbit trail.

This really isn't addressed to you, directly, this is just me spewing my thoughts because whenever someone talks about villains I go insane. Honestly. I'm so sorry, haha. I just...totally go off whenever villains come up. Whooooooopsie. Anywho, I rather found it interesting you didn't like Riders and Defenders of Berk as much. Honestly, I thought they were great and rather to the same caliber as RTTE! Of course, RTTE has advanced as grown, just like the characters have. Anyways, just interesting late night (for me anyway) thoughts!

If rainbows were a type food, what would they taste like?

  Spoilers ahead, just to warn you.

 

     You are right in what you said. The villain you are talking about was once crazy and evil, which is probably where he got his last name, but he isn't any more. He is more just crazy.

 

  Viggo isn't really crazy, and I get what you mean about him not thinking he is being bad. However, is season 4, he did get a little crazy, and considering he tried to starve out Berk, he is kinda evil.

 

  Now, to me not liking Riders of Berk and Defenders of Berk as much as Race To The Edge. I truely felt like the main villain in Riders of Berk, Alvin, was lacking. He seemed to have all the strength, but no brain power. With all the other villains, we see them win in some form or another from time to time, but Alvin failed almost all the time in every way. What's with that?

 

     The stories just seemed less In Defenders and Riders that R.T.T.E. For example, my least favorite episode is in Defenders. It's the episode where Astrid and Snotlout switch dragons for a day....and end up learning about eachother. I felt like that plot has been used in so many different things.

 

      Another thing is that it felt like the world was very closed off. What I mean is that, once you meet the main characters, there are not many others that you meet. In R.T.T.E. we slowly meet Viggo, Viggo's brother (who's name I forgot how to spell), the new villain from season 5 (Who's name I forgot), Mala, and a few others. Plus, in R.T.T.E. we are visiting new islands every other episode, but in Riders and Defenders, we leave Berk only once in a great while (Outcast Island, Change-wing Island, Fireworm Island). Plus, we meet SO many new dragons in R.T.T.E.  We meet four new dragons just in season one.

 

     Finally, there seems to be an on going story with R.T.T.E. From the first episode, we come across dragon hunter ships (crashed in a ship graveyard). But the dragon hunters don't show up til season two.They are also setting things up for H.T.T.Y.D.2 from the first episode. For example, if you look at the new villain, you will see that he has the symbol of Draco Bloodvest of his cloak.

 

  None of this is to say I don't like Defenders or Riders, I just like R.T.T.E. more.

I have a solution!

We bought Riders and Defenders on DVD at Target. Kinda pricey, but worth it, because I watch the whole thing over and over about 3 times a year. I haven't seen them in store lately, but I would seriously recommend purchasing them online somewhere. And yes, I agree that you should watch both before diving in to RTTE. Beware though, Riders and Defenders came off of Cartoon Network, so they are extremely kid oriented, but some are quite enjoyable anyways. And the storylines DO bleed over to RTTE a lot. However, RTTE is Netflix, so very few of the episodes feel like they're for kids. That is a very adult show in some ways, especially the violence. Which is not a bad thing at all, in my opinion.
