How to Train Your Dragon

Hiccup and Toothless defeat the Dragon Queen at the expense of Hiccup losing his foot. The dragons and the vikings finally make peace. Astrid kisses Hiccup and the movie movie ends with them flying around the island together.


Plot hole: When Astrid gets on Toothless for the first time, Toothless takes off uncontrollably and tries to scare her. Hiccup seems to have no control over him at this time. How is that so if with the new tail fin, Toothless cannot fly without Hiccup's precise control of the tail fin? That whole sequence would have fallen apart. This mistake was even admitted to on the DVD commentary. (00:53:35)

Question: What is the gender of the giant dragon? Astrid refers to it as the Queen, but Hiccup calls it a he and him several times in their battle with it. The movie is not clear if the dragon is male or female, and the sites I searched about it were just as cryptic. So what is the gender of the giant dragon?

Chosen answer: It is never mentioned. but Astrid only used the term queen as a reference to ants' or bees' hive minds, so as it's referred to as a he every other time, we can assume it's male.


Well this was answered in the second film by Hiccup's mother. "Every nest has its Queen... but this is their king!" when she refers to the Alpha, which is a bigger and different dragon than the one in the first film. In this context, the dragon in Part 1 is a Queen, therefore female.
