The Hackatoo is a Sharp Class dragon that appears in Dragons: Rise of Berk.
- "This impulsive and reckless member of the Sharp Class is a master at collecting wood... so long as its axe-like snout doesn't get stuck in the tree its cutting!
The Hackatoo's crest makes it seem like it's laughing while it shoots fireballs from a distance in battle."
- ―Dragons: Rise of Berk
Hackatoo eggs are normally found brown, with darker brown stripes and covered with at least three rows of spines running down its length.
Hatchling to Adult
The Hackatoos have a long body, neck and tail with six legs with sharp claws. Their most notable feature is the large bladed beak that they use to cut trees, this powerful weapon is all the more dangerous with the Hackatoo's highly reinforced spine to soak up impact and strong muscles that let it dart its head forward like a drawn bow.
Titan Winged Hackatoos have a blue body and orange wings. They have six legs and a long, slender body. Their claws and spines are orangeish-yellow and the bottom of their neck is purple.
The Hackatoo is able to cut trees with its sharp axe like snout. Its snout may possibly be a good defense as it is sharp and can wound its opponents.
A Hackatoo shoots ball-shaped fireballs, similar to those of a Rumblehorn.
Behavior and Personality
Hackatoos are reckless and impulsive.
Their snouts can get stuck into some trees if the trees are too thick.
