Night Fury (HTTYD)

The Night Fury is a dragon species from How to train your dragon with only one known individual, called Toothless. Night Furies are extremely rare creatures. They are very stealthy and intelligent and can become very dangerous if a person was to approach it at a close distance.

Physical Description

Night Furies are jet black in color and are small in size. Their wings are exceptionally large compared to their small bodies, enabling these reclusive dragons to fly faster, farther, and longer than any other dragon species. Night Furies have a pair of yellow eyes, each with pupils that determines the Night Fury's mood: narrow pupils represents the Night Fury's aggression and anxiety while larger pupils represents the Night Fury's friendliness and docility. Night Furies also have two sets of sharp retractable teeth. Like all dragons, Night Furies depend on their own tail wings for flight. If their tail wings are injured or missing, then Night Furies cannot fly. A Night Fury also depends on the dark-lit sky as cover when attacking enemies. </p>

Powers and Abilities

A Night Fury's fire power consists of bluish purple-colored flames (dubbed as plasma blasts in the TV series) that are fueled by oxygen and acetylene. These shots explode on impact in the air or on the ground and have different levels of intensity, ranging from a strong blast that can destroy structures to a concussive shot that harmlessly knock people off balance. Before firing, Night Furies often retract their teeth from catching on fire.

Night Furies display a rare ability not seen in any other dragon; echolocation, often emitting what seem to be purple soundwaves to navigate in the darkest areas.

The Night Fury is the fastest known species of dragon living on the Barbaric Archipelago. It is even known to break the sound barrier. The only dragon species that can rival a Night Fury in terms of speed is the Skrill. Night Furies take advantage of their blazing speed to dive bomb opponents with a volley of plasma blasts.


According to the Dragon Manual, the Night Fury is considered to be so aggressive that it is likened to the "unholy offspring of lightning and death itself". Night Furies are generally very aggressive to any form of threat they find, similar to how the other dragons treat the Vikings of Berk. But they are also curious creatures that attempt to understand new things they observe and are intelligent enough to attempt to recreate the actions that they see. Night Furies, in comparison to most other dragons, are very capable of communicating, and seemingly understanding human speech: the best evidence of this is when Toothless makes a noise in agreement with Hiccup regarding the fact that the Red Death can fly or when Hiccup orders Toothless not to kill Astrid and Stoick. They are, however, fiercely loyal and protective. Once a bond is formed, it is close to unbreakable.

Night Furies are piscivores, eating only fish as opposed to other forms of meat. A Night Fury will use its teeth as makeshift fishing hooks to grab onto prey before swallowing it whole.


Night Furies are extremely loyal to their Riders but it comes to a point that they become overprotective and suspicious of random strangers. Night Furies can 'sense' when their Rider needs them and then nothing can stop it from getting where it needs to be. Although Night Furies don't talk, their Riders usually know what's on their mind and what they're feeling. Night Furies are extremely picky eaters, so look out! Flaming food flies fast! And even though Night Furies are one of the cutest, most loveable, most loyal dragons (The most loyal are the dragons) on this earth, that doesn't stop them from being terrifying on the battle field.

  • When scratched underneath the chin, they fall asleep!
  • Night Furies love to roll in garlic grass but we don't know why.
  • If there's a lot of noise in the same place as a Night Fury, get that Night Fury out immediately. Flaming acetylene flies fast.
  • Night Furies are easily annoyed by Terrible Terrors (after all, they are the pigeon of the dragon world)
