Appreciate the amazing character that is Viggo Grimborn here.

 

(Spoilers below!!!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Triple Cross, heartbreaking as it was, was the episode that really sparked my interest for Viggo as a character. He didn't just randomly become a good guy like Dagur did, he had a reason and mentality. After years of hunting dragons he comes to respect them as equals. It shows that Viggo has  a softer side, other than the heartless villain we see through seasons 2-5, and it leads me to believe that he grieved over Ryker's death off-screen. 

Overall Viggo is probably my favorite character in the franchise behind Krogan and Toothless. DreamWorks definitely did a great job with his character.

​Viggo was the best villian ever.....he made us cry, laugh, and love him even more. He was probably the only one who would ever out-smart Hhiccup Haddock.

But..is there anyone who thinks that maybe...just maybe...the Skrill protected him?

I AM A PROUD ELDER IN THE CRAZY CLUB!!!! I'LL SAY IT LOUD AND I'LL SAY IT PROUD!!

 

My name is Valasari, Viking from the Isle of Vanaheim. Home to the sick and elderly dragons who make their final pilgrimage to this sacred land. Not many Vikings have made it past the unblinking Sentinel gaurdians, who have stone-like statue appearances and have the element of surprise upon unsuspecting Vikings. They are actually blind, therefore rely on their hearing & smell. They have better hearing than most dragons because of their blindness.

   ABOUT ME

 

I come from the Isle of Vanaheim. So far, the Sentinels have trusted me enough to live among the poor old dragons on this sacred Island. Of course, my Dragons are with me. They had to prove that they were trustworthy, as well as loyal. I have sadly moved away from Vanheim to live in the School. My goal is to become an Ultimate Dragon Trainer and then go back to Vanaheim!! I wish to see the Sentinels again....someday, after I have achieve my goal.

 

   ABOUT MY DRAGONS

 

I saved Saharii from a devastating situation. Dragon Hunters had caged him, but Hiccup and I rescued him just in time.

Now, Zeena, on the other talon, has a wonderful life, I am making sure of it. I wish to befriend more dragons. I hatched her from an egg and raised her. With some help from Saharii.

 

Join me in my quest to save dragons from scum like the Dragon Hunters and Viggo. And as far as dragons are concerned...I wouldn't trade them for anything.....Would You?

Funny things

 

I'm NOT clumsy. It's just that the floor hates me. The tables and chairs are bullies and the Wall Gets In The WAY!!

 

 

When someone told me I was in a fantasy, I fell off my Unicorn.

 

Friend: Did you fall?

Me: No, I attacked the floor.

Friend: Backwards?

Me: I'm freakin' talented!!!!!

The morale of this story. Just believe the cold truth that you're a Klutz. 'Cause I sure am.

 

If a robber broke into our house to search for money....I would laugh and search with him.

 

I hate it when people text me and it says "call me". One day I am going to call someone and say "text me".

 

I can't dance to save my life, but when I step in dog poo, I can moondance better than Michael Jackson. =)

 

 

 

Dad jokes:

 

 Dad lookes at me....."You know hon, I couldn't find a single shoe shop today". I breathe in a sigh of relief, knowing that he won't make a bad joke. Dad: "They only sold them in pairs". I bang my head on the wall.

 

Dad dances around in front of the ATM machine. Me: what are you doing? Dad: Just checking my balance. Me: *walks away to the car*

 

Dad in the morning: You know I stayed up all night wondering where the sun went....then it dawned on me.

 

Dad: Yesterday I ate a clock..it was very time consuming...especially when I went back for seconds!!

 

Dad: What's the difference between a piano, a tuna, and a pot of glue? Me: I don't know. Dad: You can tuna piano, but you can't piano a tuna. Me: What about the pot of glue? Dad: I knew that you would get stuck on that! Me: OHHHHHHHHHH

 

Dad: Did you hear about the guy in KC who was addicted to brake fluid? Me: No..... Dad: Good news! He can stop at any time.

 

Dad and I were at the store and he picks up the velcro: I wouldn't buy anything with velcro....it's a total rip-off.

 

Mom asks dad at Thanksgiving: How does the turkey smell? Dad: Through its nose, I guess. Me: I'm going to bed.

 

Dad after a nice hot shower: You know..... Me: Here it comes. Dad: Singing in the shower while washing your hair is all good 'till you get soap in your mouth.....it then it just becomes a soap opera....

 

That's All Folks!!

for now.....(evil laugh)

YES. I REFUSE TO BELIEVE VIGGO IS DEAD. I bawled my eyes out the first 3 times I watched Triple Cross. I think that Viggo's skrill protected him and either flew him out of there or decimated everyone. 

Honestly though the arrows in his back needed a little blood...c'mon dreamworks.

*screams into the void*

There was probably blood under his tunic, since the arrows went through it and into his back, so that might be why we didn't see any blood.

SAME THOUGH I CRIED SO HARD DURING TRIPLE CROSS. I've managed to watch it...maybe 4 times? And EACH TIME I BROKE DOWN SOBBING. After I finished it the first time I had to take a ten minute break to finish crying and even then I wasn't fully settled down after watching it. God. It was so sad, but so beautiful...I haven't sobbed that h.ard in years.

AMEN TO ALL OF THAT IN THIS THREAD. Viggo is literally one of my favorite characters in media ever created, and all of my friends can attest to how insanely obsessed I am with him, heheh. He was such a fantastic villain; his personality, his character, his views and morals, his relationships with other characters, his design, his voice, his look...GOD. Honestly, I loved him from the very very beginning. The beginning being the clip released for Maces and Talons Part 1, Viggo's introductory episode. I remember refreshing a page waiting for a clip, and after a refresh, the clip popped up, and I watched it immediately and instantly fell in love with his character and everything about him. And as the seasons have progressed, my love for him has only steadily grown. I cried my eyes out after Shell Shocked, and literally SCREAMED when the Season 5 trailer came out and I discovered he was in a few frames. Everything about Viggo has been a heck of a ride and he's safely my favorite villain ever. But, come Season 6, not just my favorite villain, but safely probably favorite character.

He was always so cool and collected, and always ten steps ahead. Even though he was smug (why I loved him anyway, obviously), he was never Krogan-grade top world-class jerk. He didn't want to rule the world, he didn't want supreme power over everything and everyone like our villains in Season 5 and 6 do. In fact, I'm quite sure that if Hiccup and the Dragon Riders hadn't been, well, Dragon Riders, Viggo would have gotten along quite well with them. You see, he was only at war with them because they directly interfered his business and had clashing morals. Without that interference- Viggo learning that dragons aren't wild beasts, but intelligent creatures with souls and feelings- he didn't hesitate to even go so far to sacrifice himself for the boy he'd been at war with. He probably could have saved his own skin, left Hiccup to escape by himself, but he DIDN'T. I mean, it's crazy how Viggo went from the suave, smug businessman to this. To him, it was all a game. And when the circumstances of the game changes, Viggo changes with it. He's ruthless, but he's not dishonorable. In fact, he has more honor than Krogan, Johann, and Drago combined. And that's what makes him such an amazing villain in general.

Viggo only had a spot of screentime in Season 6, plus one episode dedicated to him, but it was sure as Helheim worth it. I had predicted a redemption arc for him since the end of Season 5, and though I was afraid of it happening since it would possibly end in his death, I also wasn't sure how exactly the writers would handle it. I was praying for a Zuko-grade redemption arc, and you know what I got? BETTER THAN A ZUKO-GRADE REDEMPTION ARC!!

I hadn't thought it was possible to love Viggo more than I did during Triple Cross. But it was such a beautiful change of heart, one that was so true to the roots of not only his character but the entire franchise in general. Triple Cross has been my favorite episode of Season 6, and maybe even one of my favorite episodes out of the entire series. It was so beautiful and well done, and Viggo has had, I can safely say, my absolute favorite redemption arc in media history. I've loved him as a villain and I love him just as much as his beautiful redeemed self.

The character arc Viggo had not just in Season 6 has been really one of the most beautiful things. He went from a new uprising villain, to the suave businessman with clashing morals against our favorite Dragon Riders, and after his brother died and he lost half his face as well as his empire, Viggo suddenly became the side villain. He was clearly unhappy under Krogan's rule and was unhappy with his new position, and it was interesting to see him go from the calm and smooth-talking businessman to a very damaged side antagonist who was not happy with being said side antagonist. I loved how it led into his redemption, and how I think it made us all kind of feel something for him, even if people didn't like his character. He went through so much. And he came out GOOD in the end. And I just...agh. 

While I can't quite say if I believe Viggo is dead or not, as I am a firm believer it could really be both, I do know that whatever the case, he was happy with his end. Viggo has been one of the best newly introduced characters in RTTE, in my opinion, and probably my top favorite villain of all time. I love him to pieces and always will.

In season five I came to

In season five I came to truly respect viggo when he saved one of his men from falling in the volcano. Also is it possible for a skrill to protect someone from a electrical blast or divert it?

Great character

I liked him pretty good. And I don't think he's dead. The skrill was staying to protect him, and if the skrill got out of there alive.

 

Haha, I think they had to redeem him because Viggo would have tipped the scales if he'd stayed a villian. Not sure how the gang could evade and defend from all three.

Yep, Viggo is quite amazing.

Yep, Viggo is quite amazing. He's the only one from the "cruel" team who has brains, as for me. He is a buisenessman, and he knows rly well how to do business. He respects those who can counter him, be it Hiccup, Mostrous Nightmare or smb else. 

By fact, he is a perfect character - he is a sort of another Hiccup, just stronger a little. He is determined, and he learns on the job. He will never rush into the battle without anything - he would better retreat and produce a brilliant plan.

However, RIP, my perfect hero.

Her not-so-large and lovely dragon team:

  1. Raincutter. It's actually a deadly nadder, but her name is confusing. She's the head of the family, and one of the most skilled dragons here. She loves battling, but she isn't very good at it. She doesn't like going on stable quests, but she takes the responsibility of doing it.

  2. SkyGlower, a flightmare. The oldest one in here, but he gave up the leadership. LOVES racing, and Fram loves doing it with him.

  3. Groundsplitter (problems with names again), a whispering death. Admires sceneries from the boulder stables, spends time with his sis Rootcutter, hangs out by himself.

  4. Rootcutter, whispering death, Groundsplitter's sis (that's not just my fantasy, they came out of the same bundle of eggs). She has to be doing something all the time. So she's the most often stable quest completer, sometimes she tries to battle with IcyBlue.

  5. IcyBlue, or just Icer, a groncicle. A really tuff and fighty dragon, the main battle dragon in the team. Sometimes he comes on a trip for his home Icestorm Island, so Fram has to mind her business without him.

  6. BasicBrown, a gronckle. The youngest dragon in the team. Not a very active dragon. She loves helping in the farm, she also enjoys going on stable quests with Raincutter and nobody else.

  7. Swamper, a mudracker. A young playful dragon. Seems like he considers SkyGlower his mom... He's the only tidal dragon in the team, and he enjoys is. He just loves playing and getting everything aroud wet.

8. Honeytrap, a sweet death. Though she's young, the has a few unique skills, which are very helphul for everyone. So she is usually also really busy. When she's not, she like to sneak around on the beach and attack unsuspecting people for fun. Nothing dangerous, really!

9. Slicer, a razorwhip. She appears to be not as cute dragon as Windsheare. And she managed somehow to get on the wrong side of everyone. She thinks she's the sharpest and deadliest dragon around, so she shoul be the boss. But everyone respects Raincutter, and the isn't going to pas the leadership. Slicer also thiks she's the fastest dragon, and that freaks SkyGlower out. So there's nothing surprising in finding her paralized at the center of the stables... Of course, they both get a talking-off after thet. But, however, she is a really beautiful dragon at least.

10. Trumphet, a death song. I just couldn't leave the poor little thing out in the vast and unpleasant world... I'm a bit tired of creating stories, okay?

11. Sparky, a grapple grounder. It just arrived today, so no stories yet. And I forgot what color it is, sorry.

 

This siggy will be updated soon. There's going to be a photosession with my beloved dragons.
