The Crimson Goregutter is a large Boulder Class[1] dragon that first appeared in How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.

Official Description

Although Goregutters have impressive sets of antlers and axe-shaped tails, they are gentler than they appear and like to be left in peace. In battle, however, they have the ability to spew molten lava onto their antlers before ramming opponents with fiery force.


The Crimson Goregutter’s name was revealed at the 2018 Annecy Film Festival preview of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.[2]

Physical Appearance

Hatchling to Adult

Crimson Goregutters are massive dragons with a wingspan comparable to that of a Timberjack and are primarily crimson in color with purple details. They have four long and stubby legs, with their forelimbs being longer than their hindlimbs. The Goregutters' most defining features are the massive moose-like antlers that adorn their short-snouted heads. These antlers are large and powerful enough to be used as formidable weapons. The tip of their tails is shaped like a battle axe that can be used for defensive and offensive purposes.

Behavior and Personality

Crimson Goregutters are generally peaceful dragons that prefer to be left alone. Despite their docile nature, they can be aggressive and very dangerous when provoked. They can also be very protective to those that they care about, which is illustrated when a rescued Goregutter destroyed a trapper's ship to defend Fishmeat, the infant Gronckle that Fishlegs carries with him all the time.



Crimson Goregutters are able to launch molten lava from their mouths, similar to other Boulder Class dragons such as Gronckles and Hotburples. They are also able to spew their lava onto their antlers before charging onto their intended targets.


Due to their huge size, Crimson Goregutters possess an immense level of strength. A single Goregutter can easily knock down the door of a metal cage with its feet or destroy the masts of a ship by ramming it with its antlers while flying without any signs of slowing down.


How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

The Dragon Riders rescue a trapped Crimson Goregutter on one of their missions and bring it back to Berk.[3] This Goregutter also forms a bond with Meatlug's offspring Fishmeat.

Crimson Goregutters are among the myriad of dragons that reside in the Hidden World.
