Astrid and Hiccup's relationship
throughout most of the franchise would best be termed as not always platonic best friends.

Astrid's feelings for Hiccup usually manifest themselves as extreme devotion and protectiveness, as she is always the first to aid him in any situation and the last to leave him, which Hiccup reciprocates towards Astrid, she was the last to leave him on his search for new dragons before Dagur broke out of prison and they moved to the edge. It appears to be an unspoken assumption that Astrid will accompany Hiccup on his adventures, more so then the other Vikings, and will usually invite herself along regardless. On the rare occasions that they are separated by mitigating circumstances, she is shown to worry greatly about him and is always overjoyed to be reunited with him. Beyond the romantic elements of their relationship, Astrid and Hiccup are the closest human friends that either has.

The kiss

Astrid kissing Hiccup

At first, Astrid is shown to be disinterested in Hiccup. She considers him irresponsible when he tries to go against higher orders to prove himself and is particularly unimpressed with his inability to stay focused in the training arena. Unlike the rest of her peers, Astrid never ridicules Hiccup or laughs at him. Her vendetta against him seem to be on more personal ground and is fueled by suspicion and jealousy. Astrid grows particularly annoyed with him when he takes the upper hand during 'dragon training', suddenly showing far superior skills than she could ever hope to achieve despite all her hard work and determination. She also seems to be the only one able to see through the facade Hiccup puts up in the wake of his popularity. By the time Hiccup takes the final win, Astrid has grown beyond aggravated. Instead of confronting him calmly like she initially did when questioning him about his weirdness, Astrid follows him to the Cove and aggressively tries to press the truth out of him. Once she spots Toothless, however, her feud with Hiccup is forgotten and her first instincts are to protect Hiccup from Toothless. Notably, it's not the first time Astrid warns Hiccup as she told him to get down and out of the way when in the face danger during their training sessions. This time around, however, she physically attempts to protect him by pulling him to the ground with her and then telling him to run while she distracts Toothless. Hiccup is quick to intervene before anything serious happens. He attempts to calm both parties down and explain himself to Astrid who is thoroughly astonished by the revelation. Although it is unknown if she was actually running to the village, Astrid runs away in shock and fear, only to be picked up by Toothless and put in a tree. After finally agreeing with Hiccup to "let him show her" why he has a dragon, (having no choice other than fall out of the tree and die) she reluctantly gets on the dragon. But thanks to her attitude, Toothless doesn't listen to Hiccup's words to get down, slowly. Instead racing down, dunking into the water, and spinning in circles until Astrid apologizes. After he slows down, Astrid admires the beauty of the sky, especially as the sun starts to go down. She waves her hand through the clouds and even falls back so she can feel it in her hair. As they approach Berk, Astrid puts her arms around Hiccup's waist and leans her head on his shoulder, to Hiccup's surprise and then delight. As they go back into the air, she admits flying is amazing, and adding onto to it by saying Toothless is amazing. As they try to go back, Toothless suddenly hears a call and flies into line with a ton of other dragons, telling Astrid to get down so they aren't spotted. Once they are in the Dragon's Nest, Hiccup urges Toothless to get out for his and Astrid's safety, both Hiccup and Astrid slightly frightened when a Gronckle fails to get enough food for the Red Death and is promptly eaten. Once escaping the Nest, Astrid excitedly tells Hiccup they have to tell Stoick, but Hiccup gently takes her arm, telling her that they'll kill Toothless if the village finds out. She asks if he's really being serious about wanting to keep the Dragon's Nest a secret, something Vikings have searched for for thousands of years just to protect his pet dragon. When Hiccup firmly says yes, her face changes, realizing just how important Toothless is to him. She decides to support him, asking what he's going to do, to which he says he'll think of something. She then punches him in the arm, saying that for kidnapping her. As he rubs his arm, she grabs him by the shirt and quickly kisses his cheek, stuttering slightly as she says that was for everything else before running back home. In the Arena the next day, she meets with him before he goes inside, gently asking what his plan is. He tells her he has to try to stop this, but if something goes wrong then to take care of Toothless. She accepts, before asking him to promise her nothing will go wrong. He doesn't get the time to respond, as Gobber tells him it's time. After trying to train the Monstrous Nightmare and Stoick angering it by ringing against the cage, Astrid cries out for Hiccup, using her axe to force the arena open and then throwing a hammer at the dragon to distract it from Hiccup, running away from it herself. After Toothless is locked up on a ship heading towards the Dragon's Nest, Hiccup is angry and saddened, and Astrid doesn't make him feel better when she states the obvious (he's lost his tribe, father, and best friend) but slowly turns it into an almost pep talk/motivational speech. She asks him what he plans to do and he responds with "I don't know, probably something stupid" when she tells him it's a good start but he's already done that, he responds with something crazy. When Hiccup introduces the dragons in the arena to the other Viking teens, she shows her support, (probably being the main reason they go in the first place) and when Ruffnut tries to flirt with Hiccup, Astrid pulls her away by her helmet. During the battle against the Red Death, Hiccup saves Astrid when the Red Death tries to suck Stormfly into her mouth and eat her, before Hiccup has Toothless shoot a plasma blast at the Red Death, Astrid falling to the ground before Toothless grabs her. She smiles up at Toothless and Hiccup before being placed on the ground. After Hiccup disappears in the smoke and fire, Astrid rushes to the scene, believing Hiccup is dead. Tears come to her eyes, and when she sees Hiccup again even more tears come to her eyes as she rejoices with the Vikings. After he wakes up and goes outside she sneaks up behind him and punches his back, claiming that was for scaring her. As Hiccup protests angrily, she smiles and pulls him forward for a real kiss on the lips. He quickly tells her he can get used to it as she blushes. She then joins Hiccup and the other teens for a dragon ride on their dragons as the movie ends, concluding their relationship as not always platonic best friends.

It is possible that Astrid had feelings for Hiccup before the events in the movie, due to her immediate change in behavior during the first flight. She might have just ignored this since Hiccup didn't meet the usual Viking standards. When Hiccup was thought to be dead after he defeated the Red Death, Astrid is the only Viking to be brought to tears, meaning she took it the hardest, besides Stoick.

Gift of the Night Fury

Main article: Gift of the Night Fury
Astrid and Hiccup's second kiss

Astrid remains a close friend of Hiccup in Gift of the Night Fury, as Astrid and Hiccup both advocate the idea to make up new holiday traditions to cheer the tribe up, and they discuss the prosthetic Hiccup makes for Toothless so the Night Fury can fly on his own. He also calls her "M'lady" we she hands him a cup of Yak-nog. It's never officially confirmed if they've become a couple. Even so, near the end of the special, Astrid comforts Hiccup when he's missing Toothless, and even kisses him on the lips and hugs him. She still likes to tease Hiccup however, as she did with him when she noticed Toothless had entered the Great Hall, before she giddily turned him around so he could see Toothless was back.

Dawn of the Dragon Racers

When Snotlout wins Astrid tells Hiccup "One out of two ain't bad, and for what it's worth I always knew red was your color." Hiccup responds "Awe Astrid thank you."" I was talking to to Toothless." Astrid joked. In the flash back Hiccup was trying to get the other riders not to have a dragon race Astrid was the one he asked to back him up she did but when he saw the other riders racing including Astrid, he yelled to her, "really Astrid, where's the LOVE for the acting chief?". When Snotlout crashed into Astrid and she fell off of her dragon, Hiccup was worried before realising she had broken her arm and he was upset. 

Riders of Berk

In the Riders of Berk series they appear to have a budding relationship, but they are quite shy and awkward about it. Their romantic attachment is more suggested in their dynamic and interaction then outright stated. Whilst Astrid maintains more of her initial stern, authoritative demeanor with the other Vikings, she opens up more when alone with Hiccup, and apparently feels safe showing a considerably softer, more whimsical side of her personality to him. The two are incredibly close, with Astrid acting as Hiccup's confidant when he needs advice on personal problems, and often pair off from the others when needing to achieve something especially difficult.

This shows that Hiccup cares what Astrid thinks of him.

Then Hiccup says "Well you know Astrid training dragons isn't the only thing I think about." She then asks him "Are you actually saying that to me with a straight face?" This might suggest that Astrid and Hiccup are thinking about each other more intently.  At the end of the episode when the were back in the village Hiccup said to the villagers "We learned alot about the filghtmare and Iwill explain it all to you but the most important thing we learned was Fearless Finn Hofferson was indeed fearless," Then towards Astrid "just like all the Hoffersons."  Then he put his hand on Astrid's shoulder and they smiled at each other.

View to a Skrill I 001

These episodes continue the trend of Hiccup and Astrid choosing to be close to each other and the pair showing more concern for each other than typical of the others.

Astrid joins Hiccup, and this time Snoutlout, on the mission to find the overdue Bucket and Mulch, after rescuing the missing Vikings from Berserkers it is Astrid and Hiccup alone who speak to the pair. Once the frozen Skrill is returned to Berk, Astrid and Hiccup stand right next to each other with Snoutlout and Fishlegs on either side of the pair. When Hiccup goes to tell his father about the Skrill Astrid accompanies him and Toothless. While speaking to Silent Sven Astrid stands next to Hiccup, with Snotlout and Fishlegs on the other side. Although, when they land on the seastack after the Berserker attack, they place Fishlegs between their dragons when they land, this could be due to their secondary positions in the V-formation with Fishlegs in the lead. Then when the two teams reunite Hiccup takes up a position right next to Astrid in the formation.

View to a Skrill I 002

When the Skrill first prepares to fire on Hiccup and Toothless, it is Astrid that cries out his name and rushes forward to help before the others follow. Then when Hiccup and Toothless dodge and the Skrill fires on the group, it is Astrid’s name that Hiccup cries in alarm, despite the fact that the entire groups was fired upon. In contrast, when the Skrill actually hits Snotlout neither Hiccup nor Astrid show much concern, Astrid actually seems to be deriving pleasure from it.

Astrid also acts as Hiccup’s voice of reason and devil’s advocate for his plans. When Hiccup states that he will follow the Skrill into the clouds by using Toothless’ ability to echolocate Astrid asks if that even works in the clouds. Also, when Hiccup places Astrid in charge of the team attacking the boats and he takes Tuff and Ruff to fight the Skrill Astrid points out that he needs to be careful because he has more metal than the others.

Race to the Edge

Despite there being no direct confirmation, in Race to the Edge, that Hiccup and Astrid are a couple, their relationship is shown to be closer and stronger. It is almost like they both have feelings with each other, and both know the other has feelings for the other, but both feel that there are things more important than a relationship at the moment. However, when they are alone together or one of them is in great danger, they aren't afraid to show a little affection.

Then the next day when everyone is pushing their ideas for the outpost Astrid smiles when Hiccup states that they need one idea, as if she fully expects Hiccup to choose her design and then gets upset when Hiccup states that everyone else's ideas are good. However, what is perhaps the most telling is the layout that Hiccup chooses for Dragon's Edge. Hiccup placed his hut right next to Astrid's hut and they are closer together than any of the other huts.

In Have Dragon Will Travel, Part 2, Heather asks Astrid if she and Hiccup are a couple. First, Astrid panics and throws her axe into the top of a tree. Then she adamantly states the two are just friends, though appears a little nervous on the matter, and it is clear that Heather doesn't buy her denials. Also, when Heather states that Hiccup is kind of cute Astrid blushes, smiles and says, "I guess. If you like that unassuming, heroic, dragon rider type." Then at the end, Hiccup feels sorry for Astrid losing a friend, knowing the two got really close. Astrid then puts her arm around Hiccup and states, "But I still have you."

The Next Big Sting

Main article: The Next Big Sting I'm sure that The Next Big Sting is not often thought of as a Hiccstrid relationship story. However, as a married person, I was struck by how Astrid interacts with Hiccup as he demonstrates his flight suit "Dragon Fly 1" to the gang. Initially, she seems perplexed by Hiccup's fascination with his new "toy". "Ugh, Boys!" she says, shaking her head and doing a facepalm at his delight in tempting fate by jumping off of a cliff to test it. But each time he puts himself in danger doing this, she appears more and more worried about his safety. And whe he finally crashes and breaks the suit, her first words to him are an angry "OK that's it, you're done with this!" And later, when he hints at having an idea of how to mimic the Speed Stingers' webbing in an improved flight suit, Astrid goes ballistic and says "If you say Dragon Fly 2, I'm locking you up!" Granted, this kind of seemingly angry and controlling behavior is not the usual romantic Hiccstrid interplay. But that's the point. Her interest in Hiicup is maturing past the merely romantic. She has invested too much time and effort in keeping him safe to just let him throw his life away on something seemingly trivial in value. Thus, this episode illustrates a silent statement of "I love you, you idiot! Don't scare me like this!"

Astrid looks taken aback by that, remembering her talk with Heather. At the end, Hiccup is upset when Astrid tells him that Heather was helping them, since he is surprised that Astrid was keeping a secret from him that could help them majorly. This is also because Hiccup entrusts everything to Astrid, even things that he doesn't tell his dad, and this was a huge act of betrayal. Astrid was scared during this account, because Hiccup was being unusually cold to her. At the end, it seems like they reconcile.

He held her hand, and begged her to stay alive a little longer, for him. When Viggo arrived to take the dragon he revealed that it was his boat ware Astrid caught the scourge which made Hiccup's hatred for Viggo doubled especially when Viggo threatened to kill the dragon.

When they land, Astrid begins walking off to find Stormfly when she trips over a rock and Hiccup leaps for her wrapping an arm around her waist and shielding her head from hitting the ground as they fall, leaving them in an awkward situation. When the Triple Stryke first appears, Hiccup pulls her out of the way and shortly after has Toothless grab her and move her to a safer position. Later, Hiccup tells Astrid that Stormfly was only protecting when she was cast of to the side by her dragon. Hiccup cheers her up and tells Astrid that he is there for her, that he will always be there for her, that there will always be a Hiccup and Astrid, and that she is far from useless in her current state. Shortly after Hiccup says this the Triple Styke returns and Hiccup dives for Astrid pulling her to the ground with him and out of harm. Later, Hiccup and Astrid are sitting by the Dragon stables, when all of a sudden Hiccup moves as close as possible to Astrid.

At the end of the episode, just prior to the explosion of the volcano on the Edge, Hiccup and Astrid were kissing after promising to keep their relationship out of the war with Viggo, but they were seen by the Riders, erasing Ruff and Tuff's suspicions about an 'illness'. Snotlout, on the other hand, seems to be convinced of a gambling problem.

Astrid and Hiccup kissing HTTYD2

By the time of the sequel, Astrid and Hiccup are an official couple, boyfriend/girlfriend or possibly betrothed. She even teases him in an affectionate manner, and calls him babe when they are fighting Drago's army. They are comfortable sitting very close to each other, as opposed to in Animal House when they nervously moved away from each other. They are even so close that Astrid casually braids Hiccup's hair. Astrid also helps Hiccup in personal problems he can't figure out on his own. Also, she has displayed greater loyalty, trust and protectiveness towards Hiccup, just like Valka throughout the movie. They exchange two cheek kisses and a big kiss on the lips at the end.

Deleted Scenes

How to Train Your Dragon: An Axe to Grind

An Axe to Grind was deleted because of the length, not the content. It's therefore considered canon.

This deleted scene gives insight into Hiccup and Astrid's relationship prior to dragon training. It also shows Gobber encouraging and teasing Hiccup about his crush on Astrid.

Near the end of the scene, Astrid thanks Hiccup for sharpening her axe and then brushes her bangs away from her face with a smile. She does the exact same thing before kissing him in the cove and after almost kissing him in Animal House. This suggests that there might have been some aspects about Hiccup that already appealed to Astrid.
