- Hiccup, How to Train Your Dragon
Toothless, along with his human companion Hiccup, is the hero of the island of Berk. Toothless's species, the Night Fury, was nearly hunted to extinction by the Vikings.
With each other's help, Hiccup and Toothless help the people of Berk to find peace with the dragons. Toothless's destiny is to become the Alpha, the leader of the dragons.
Did you know? The How to Train Your Dragon films and cartoon series are based on a middle-grade chapter book by the same name.
The stories are much different, however. In the books, Toothless isn't a Night Fury, but a small Seadragonus Giganticus Maximus originally believed to be a common garden dragon. He is small enough to perch on Hiccup's arm.
