According to Richard Hamilton, the only Fathomfin seen thus far in the Franchise is a leviathan class dragon, another name for a Tidal Class Titan Wing. This Fathomfin is a gigantic dragon that is mainly blue with dark green spots. It has a large fin lining its back and barnacles covering certain parts of its body, similar to real-life baleen whales.
The Fathomfin has an expandable, pelican-like throat. When expanded, its skin becomes translucent, allowing its rider to see through it and observe their surroundings, similar to a glass bottom boat.
Behavior and Personality
Not much is known about the Fathomfin's personality or behavior, but they are generally peaceful dragons.
When the Dragon Riders are about to reach Nepenthe, Hiccup uses his spyglass to observe a Fathomfin surfacing in the distance before commenting on its brief yet mysterious presence. Fishlegs immediately got excited about it and wants to know more about the new dragon, but Hiccup tells him that investigating the situation on Nepenthe is currently more important than studying the Fathomfin.
- The Fathomfin's name was first revealed in a commentary regarding the graphic novel project The Fire Tides.
