Gobber the Belch is a Viking of the Hairy Hooligan Tribe, tasked with training Hooligan novices in the Dragon Initiation Program as well as other Viking classes.


Early Life

Gobber is one of the few people to live and tell the tale of stealing How to Train Your Dragon by Professor Yobbish from the Meathead Public Library and from under the Hairy Scary Librarian's nose.

Viking Teacher

Gobber is tasked with training Hairy Hooligan teens in various skills needed to become a Viking: catching and training dragons, pirating skills, sword-fighting, and rudeness. He is incapable of speaking in any tone of voice other than a bellow. He has trained many students that became great warriors, being a capable warrior himself. He normally wears his small shorts. He believes Hiccup's group is the best group he has ever taught.

Life as a Slave

In the tenth book, Gobber is made a slave in the Amber Slavelands when he protested Alvin's kingship. He later joins the Dragonmarkers.

Ultimate Shame

In the eleventh book, he is captured by Alvin and his beard is cut off, the ultimate Viking shame.

Physical Appearance

"He was a seven foot giant with a mad glint in his one working eye and a beard like exploding fireworks."
How to Train Your Dragon

Gobber is a large muscular man with an unkempt beard. He also has a very loud voice. His yell "made the hairs on the back of Hiccup's neck stick straight up like the spines on a sea urchin."
