How to Train Your Dragon

Trivia: In the scene after Hiccup finally gets Toothless' new tail fin to work, and the two are relaxing after they fly through the fire ball, the two are greeted by a group of tiny dragons. This little dragon was actually what Toothless was originally going to be, as he was in the book, until they changed him to a dragon big enough for Hiccup to ride to suit the movie. (00:46:15)

Trivia: Before Toothless brings Hiccup and Astrid to the dragon's nest, we get several shots of other dragons. Pay attention to one shot of a Monstrous Nightmare; it can be seen holding Gloria, the hippo from Madagascar. (Confirmed on the DVD's commentary.). (00:56:50)

Trivia: If you watch closely at the beginning of the movie, when the DreamWorks logo appears on screen, you can see Toothless flying around in the stars behind the moon. (00:00:20)

Trivia: If you look closely at Toothless, you can see he has scars from the "mangler" Hiccup uses to shoot him down. They are located on his throat, left foot, and wing.

Trivia: When Ruffnut and Tuffnut are insulting the giant dragon, one of the twins calls it the Bride of Grendel. This is a reference to the old Viking legend of Beowulf. (01:16:45)
