I've hunted every Night Fury, except yours. [src]
  — Grimmel  

Grimmel is the main antagonist in the upcoming film How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.


Physical Appearance

Grimmel is a tall and very lean man with gray hair, pale skin, and hazel eyes. He wears leather armor, brown pants, greyish-brown boots, and a hooded jacket.


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.


  • Dragon Hunting: Grimmel is an extremely skilled and capable 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 train them to become vicious killers.



Grimmel has claimed to have hunted down every Night Fury, except for Toothless, and this causes the latter to become the hunter's most coveted trophy.

His Deathgrippers

Grimmel seems to have some form of bond with his Deathgrippers, as he can be seen petting one in the trailer.

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III

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

Light Fury

Grimmel seems to also have an interest in the Light Fury as well as Toothless. Not only because she's a close relative of the Night Fury, but she may also be the key to finding the Hidden World.



You are nothing without your dragon! [src]
Then, I will destroy everything you love. [src]
I've hunted every Night Fury, except yours. Hand him over. [src]
