I'm sure something we can all agree on is that Toothless is super, duper cute! Is he as cute as a cat or a dog though?

There are historical references to dragons but they are all like old roman records or writings of monks and describe them as just really big snakes. So the most historically accurate depiction of a dragon is a "Thicc Danger Noodle"

But did they even read the book its based on? No one even realizes there were books and they were a huge part of my childhood years before the movie came out. Then I couldn't sit through more than a few minutes of the movie cuz it's like they took all the names and fully changed the story. Sorry for the bit of a rant.

my dad's dog once got off his leash and came home with the shoulder blade of a cow. he looked so pleased with himself I couldn't bare to take it away. however hence forth he was known as thief. cuz you know he just stole it from another dog, who was probably still on it's leash. lol fucking thief.

Toothless is more like a dog... He turns around before he lies down, he cocks his head when he hears a new noise or when he’s thinking, and he’s NOT EVIL! ...dog.

The thing I loved about the end of HTTYD3 was the voiceover by Hiccup that starts with "There were dragons when I was a boy." What I love about it, is that is how the original book starts off. The films are "inspired by", but also completely different from the books, but that section of dialog at the end of the final movie is a really nice nod back to where it all started.

I always thought that the animators could just look at the books for reference lol. Toothless is definitely more cat-like in them, at least for the most part

I like the way the differentbspecies of dragons are adapted to survive i love the ecology of fictional creatures wich is one of the many reasons that i am adicted to monster hunter since i started 4 ultimate (besides pounding the face of that beutifull creature with a giant fricken hammer and making armour out of its body)

Dragons are neither. They are reptiles, so they would act as such. Like humans are interesting, but at the same time, not what they were looking for.

True dragon locomotion is also probably hard to puzzle out, as we don't have any large, six-limbed animals to use as a reference.

I saw the Red Death as the creators confirming that Dragons were as individual as the Vikings they raided. There are evil humans, there are evil dragons. You just have to understand which is which before fixing the problem.

I don't see the wombat either but damn they're quick. They'll chase you around the backyard, headbutt you, try and nimble but it hurts although that one was only playing and not wild. A wild one, it'll just avoid you.

I think Nisha (sp?) was right, def cats. Also cats can totally by as loyal and playful as dogs. My old cat Ciri (named after The Witcher) would literally 1) wait for me at the window every day when I left for work, 2) follow me all around the house whenever I was home, 3) drag her toys over to me to let me she wanted me to play with her more, and 4) always wanted to be sleeping on or near me. It really just depends on how well you can read their body language, how consistent you are (cats are very much creatures of habit), and whether or not you play with them regularly/well (most folks think cats get bored of playing easily but more often than not if you have something like a wand with a string and feather on it and you're moving it well ,not too fast that they never catch it and not too slow that they're bored with some variety, they'll want to play with you till they're completely exhausted. If they leave the room or walk away they are likely trying to hide so they can ambush the "prey" when it is least likely to expect it. Most folks will quit at that point because they think the cat walked away because it was bored when in reality the cat just popped into the other room so it could hug the wall and listen and wait for its chance to strike). Most of the cats I've known would happily play for 1-2 hours, till they were literally panting from exhaustion.

Fun fact about cats: they don't normally get vocal with other cats. Yeah, they'll sometimes growl or hiss, but the meowing is usually just reserved for the kittens to help the parents/children locate each other. Grown cats are typically silent toward each other, especially in the wild. House cats, on the other hand, are extremely vocal because they've learned that's how humans communicate.

In the third movie especially i notices both toothless and the female nigh (light) fury are a pretty good mix of both cat and dog, maybe toothless pulls slightly to dog side in behavior and his girlfriend pulls to cat side

About the cat drifting, my mothers cat once drifted from the livingroom into the kitchen complete with "screaming tires" sound effects, which i guess was due to toejam or recently licked toebeans. XD

Cats are a good model if you want it to act like an animal. Dogs are a good model if you want it to act like a normal person. Dog people don't have a taste for animals and just go for the most human-like ones on the planet.

Toothless starts off acting more like a cat, but he’s personality was always more like a dog. Loyal, loving, caring, playful. All more dog attributes then cats. But he looks more like a cat, and when he’s in attack mode he’s more like a cat, but when with toothless he’s definitely more like a dog. The end result, he is like both animals.

Friendly reminder that the little dragons are officially called NightLights. Also, the flight physics of HTTYD were pretty on point. Not sure about the sound barrier being broken every other minute, but the aerobatics and maneuvers were seriously on point.

The baby night furies made me so frustrated just because of their designs. I was over here trying to figure it how night fury coloration works and I had a theory among others that maybe females were white and males were black but that that baby with the black and white cat pattern showed up and all my theories went out the window cause how the heck do you explain a dragon looking like that? They are cute though lol

I mean, the fact that he resembles Stitch from Lilo and Stitch definitely made me wonder the influences. Chris Sanders was the creator of Stitch and Toothless, hence the style being so similar. He wanted a creature much like Stitch, cute but could also be intimidating. Where you can believe that they could cause mayhem but also be a lovable member of the family. Stitch clearly has some influences from dogs and koalas and since Toothless gets some of his cues from him, I'm not surprised with some of the influences used. He most definitely wanted Toothless to be his own thing and not just a rehash of Stitch so adding in the cat and obvious bat and lizard elements because dragon definitely helps. I definitely always saw Toothless as a hybrid animal because he is a dragon after all. It never struck me as odd that he would have various animal behaviors and for Toothless and Hiccup to bond, you need some recognizable cues for the audience so dogs and cats are a perfect reference. Personally, I can see Toothless as being either a dog or a cat because there are some dogs that need time to trust humans because of a harsh past, which Toothless has, and some cats will play fetch and be super affectionate, like my own cat. The headbutt to Hiccup's hand for example makes me think cat but Toothless jumping on his bed makes me think it could go either way. So I can definitely see the animators going up to Chris like "cat or dog?" and him going "yes". XD

And depending on the dragon it's a case-by-case basis depending if they're more like a cat or a dog. For example toothless is more like a dog with a cat's intelligence and sense of humor. Stormfly very similar intelligence of a cat Tendencies of a dog she likes to play fetch. Hookfang the monster's nightmare that snot loud rides is very much like a cat because he will light snotlout's pants on fire for no other reason than because he's bored. Meatlug the gronckle is very much like a big dog. I can't tell you what's with barf and belch to save my life they're one Dragon sure but they're separate beings personality-wise.
