Grimmel is the main antagonist of the upcoming film How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.
Prior to the events of the third film, Grimmel hunted down all Night Furies known to be in existence. Toothless is the only one he has not killed, possibly because he had been with Hiccup and therefore sheltered.
This section requires expansion.
Grimmel is a tall, slender man with gray hair, pale skin, and hazel eyes. He wears leather armor, brown pants, greyish-brown boots, and a hooded jacket.
|“||This is a new kind of enemy. [src]||”|
Grimmel has been described as "the darkest threat" to the Dragon Riders. He holds great prejudice towards dragons and is of the firm belief that they must be either imprisoned or eliminated. Any alternate ideas that involve existence are unacceptable to him.
Abilities, Skills, and Talents
- Dragon Hunting: Grimmel is a substantially experienced hunter, for he stated that he alone managed to hunt Night Furies to the brink of extinction.
- Dragon Taming: Grimmel somehow managed to tame six Deathgrippers and trained them to become vicious killers.
Grimmel has claimed to have hunted down every Night Fury except for Toothless. This causes the latter to become the hunter's most coveted trophy.
Grimmel seems to have some form of bond with his Deathgrippers, as he can be seen petting and leaning onto one of them without any signs of fear.

Being the best friend of his ultimate prize, Hiccup will likely become a bane to Grimmel’s great hunt.
