Top 10 How To Train Your Dragon Quotes
“This… is Berk. The best kept secret this side of, well, anywhere. Granted, it may not look like much, but this wet heap of rock packs more than a few surprises. Life here is amazing, just not for the faint of heart. See, where most folks enjoy hobbies like whittling or needlepoint, we Berkians prefer a little something we like to call—DRAGON RACING!” —Hiccup, How To Train Your Dragon 2
This is a fascinating parallel to the opening monologue of the series. It shifts from pessimistic towards playful. This narration would be used in all the movies to establish time and new lore. This is a sweet tribute to the original film, but it takes only the tenth place because it’s fluff.
“There were dragons when I was a boy.” – Hiccup, How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
The last scene in the movie shows Hiccup, Astrid, and their children on a journey together. Hiccup tells the story of how humans and dragons coexisted as he was a child while they searched the seas looking for signs.
It’s not clear at this time if Hiccup will find Hiccups long-separated best friends. Still, it’s a beautiful connection between past and present and an optimistic outlook on the future of Viking children honoring their history.
“Turns out all we needed was a little more of this.” “You just gestured to all of me.” – Stoick and Hiccup, How To Train Your Dragon
Stoick, Hiccup’s dragon-hating, stoic father, confesses that his son may be the only hope for a peaceful Viking future at the end of How To Train Your Dragon.
The beginning, where Stoick criticizes Hiccup’s appearance & personality, is paralleled by the end. “But you just pointed at all of me. It shows that Stoick recognizes he was the one to change and needs to follow his son’s lead.
“What you’re searching for isn’t out there, Hiccup. It’s in here.” – Astrid, How To Train Your Dragon 2
On the clifftop near the beginning of How To Train Your Dragon 2, Astrid expresses excitement at the prospect that Hiccup will inherit the title of chief from his father. Hiccup is drawn to adventure and wonder more than bureaucracy and leadership.
Astrid asks Hiccup calmly to look within, and he responds that their greatness is in their homeland and not the wild world outside.
“I wouldn’t kill him, because he looked as frightened as I was. I looked at him… and I saw myself.” – Hiccup, How To Train Your Dragon
When Hiccup refuses to kill Night Fury, the Vikings react furiously. Hiccup pleads for compassion and asks them to share his feelings about his friend. This is a pivotal moment in the film. It was made possible by an emotional and intelligent script.
“You have the heart of a chief… and the soul of a dragon.” – Valka, How To Train Your Dragon 2
Hiccup struggles between his dreams, heritage, and responsibilities in the second film. While he feels more loyal to the dragons than he does to his people, he knows that they must lead if a person wants to be with them. When he meets Valka, his mother, he feels the opposite of Stoick’s personality and rules. She is a dramatic dragon rider, capable of great empathy, just like her son.
Stoick is tragically killed while protecting Hiccup from dragon trappers in a final, fatal battle. Valka talks to Hiccup in the aftermath and reconciles both of them.
“Go on, bud. Lead them to the Hidden World. You’ll be safe there. Safer than you could ever be with me. It’s okay. I love you too. And I want you to be free. Our world doesn’t deserve you. Yet.” – Hiccup, How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
Fans were devastated when Toothless and Hiccup, longtime friends, separated in The Hidden World. It’s an emotionally fitting ending to the story. This quote from Hiccup demonstrates her careful consideration of the situation and helps us understand that, while it hurts, it is still the best ending.
“This is Berk. It’s twelve days north of Hopeless, and a few degrees south of Freezing to Death. It’s located solidly on the Meridian of Misery. My village. In a word, sturdy. And it’s been here for seven generations, but, every single building is new. We have fishing, hunting, and a charming view of the sunsets. The only problems are the pests. You see, most places have mice or mosquitoes. We have… dragons.” – Hiccup, How To Train Your Dragon
This is a great example of an opening monologue. In just a few sentences, it establishes the pace, tone, and story. Hiccup tells the story of the beginning of the franchise from a greyscale cliffside. Vikings are preparing to fight the dragons.
It’s exciting, as well as tense. While we know what to expect, we also have high hopes for something completely new and exciting.
“But with love comes loss, son. It’s part of the deal. Sometimes it hurts, but in the end, it’s all worth it. There’s no greater gift than love.” – Stoick, How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
The third movie shows Hiccup grieving the death of his father and reminiscing about his childhood. He also reflects on his journey to becoming the chief and dragon rider that we know today. Stock grieves the death of Valka in a flashback. Hiccup questions Stoick if he will have a new mother. Stock replies that she was the only one. He then gives his beautiful advice, highlighting a theme that runs through all three films: love is the answer, and love conquers all.
“Legend says that when the ground quakes or lava spews from the earth it’s the dragons. Letting us know they’re still here. Waiting for us to figure out how to get along. Yes, the world believes the dragons are gone, if they ever existed at all. But we, Berkians, we know otherwise. And we’ll guard this secret until the time comes when dragons can return in peace.” – Hiccup, How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
This is the end of the third film and the best part about the trilogy. It is a mirror of the opening monologue in the first movie. It summarizes the themes of family, peace, love.
Hiccup spoke with such passion and pride of an ideal age that there was no dry eye in the theatre. This quote is, therefore, the #1.
