Thinking of binge watching it through Christmas Break. I have Netflix and I saw it on there and figured "why not? everyone else is talking about it. plus i get to learn more about dragons so eahiuhwiuhiuhe" 


so.. how's everyone's thoughts on it? I know it's for a very young audience but aren't we all kids on this forum LOL.

AYO. I'M BACK. ALL BRAND NEW AND COOL now let's see here...


I'm 17 now, 2 years since I've been here..

I'm now dabbling in 3D animation, I'm improving incredibly in digital art, and I'm able to do 3D model's textures.

I would LOVE to learn 3D modelling... but I'm still struggling with where to start on that, same thing with music making.

I also really like woolly howls but I can't find any gifs of them so I might make my own...

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.

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.

It is not a dire necessity, you can just look it up I guess,I don't wanna spoil it for you so, if they mention a person, or dragon (say Dagur) just look it up if you wish.

Tracking in case someone els wants to find it through me.

Hey, welcome to my signature. I don't have much, like to keep it simple.
here are a few links if you want 'em.

(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.

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."



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 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.







(I figure you've probably already figured that out, but I thought I'd play it safe.)

How To Train Your Dragon







Quotes I love


"Once I set the sea alight with a single fiery breath....

Once I was so mighty that I thought my name was death....

Sing out loud until you're eaten, song of melancholy bliss....

For the mighty and the middling all shall come to THIS...."

The Green Death, How To Train Your Dragon: book 1. Cressida Cowell.

"I sailed so far to be a King, but the time was never right.....

I lost my way on a stormy past, got wrecked in starless night....

But let my heart be wrecked by hurricanes and my ship by stormy weather....

I know I am a Hero...and a Hero is....FOREVER!

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!

Up with your sword and strike at the gale......

Ride the rough seas for those waves are your home......

Winters may freeze but our hearts do not fail.....


You are never alone if the sea is your friend......

Riding the waves of impossible quests.....

If it doesn't end well, then it isn't the end.....

A Hero.....Fights.....FOREVER!

The hero cares not for a wild winter's storm.....

For it carries him swift on the back of the wave.....

All may be lost and our hearts may be worn.....

"Cows live in herds, you unyielding maniac."


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.

This thread is from 2017. Please make sure to look at the date it was created before commenting so we don't bring back old threads. I'm pretty sure the peeps watched all of the seasons already by that time xD

Some screenies of my favorite Mario Kart game!


My friend was playing as my Yoshi, Fantom. I was playing as Koopper since she didn't possess any of the Gold Kart set.



Racing on my favorite Mario Kart race track! Always did the nostalgia hit me whenever I hear the soundtrack!




Amazing banner made by Emerald!



Overall I'm a very friendly person and I absolutely love to chat! I like to talk about dragons, OCs and their lore/stories, Super Mario stuff and Pokémon!

I'm an artist who loves to draw anything like dragons and Yoshis! Sometimes I do full arts and sometimes I love to make new characters and references! Here are some of my recent artwork showing few of my characters!




My Yoshisona, Fantom! She was my first Mario OC ever created back in 2019, and she is almost 3 years old!

Luna, my Auroclipse character. She is also one of my dragonsona and has a place deep in my heart!

And one of my few full arts, featuring Origin (Right) and Marie (Friend's OC, Left)!
