Mulch is a Viking who first appeared in Dragons: Riders of Berk. His right hand has been replaced by a hook and his left leg by a wooden stick. He is a fisherman, and is often seen alongside Bucket. Mulch and Bucket ride a Hideous Zippleback named Whip and Lash, in Dragons: Race to the Edge.
In "How to Start a Dragon Academy", Mulch, alongside Bucket, completed a fishing run. Unfortunately, their catch was soon eaten by Dragons. Later on, Snotlout and Hookfang scared a bunch of fish into their fishing nets, earning their thanks.
Mulch had then bought a sheep from Bucket in "Viking for Hire" but refused to pay for it. Gobber, who was taking on some of Stoick's responsibilities, gave them a pair of weapons and had them fight it out.
Mulch was then trying to teach Bucket which animal gives what in "Animal House". After showing Bucket that the yaks are supposed to be giving milk, he notices that the dragons have scared the animals into not producing anything.
In "Alvin and the Outcasts", Mulch then helped in evacuating the children and elderly to Odin's beach when Alvin the Treacherous and his Outcasts came to find the 'Dragon conqueror'. Mulch then went back to find Bucket only to be captured by Alvin and his men.
Mulch approved of Bucket's first portrait of Stoick and a more muscular version of Hiccup, in "Portrait of Hiccup as a Buff Young Man."
Fighting with the Berserkers
Becoming More Adapted to Having Dragons Around
In "Dragon Eye of the Beholder, Part 1", Mulch, alongside Bucket, were fishing when Ruffnut and Tuffnut, and their dragon pretended to be a sea monster. Mulch then saw Trader Johann with them unconscious.
Mulch and Bucket along with Whip and Lash participated in a successful attempt to reclaim Dragon’s Edge from the Dragon Hunters and Dragon Flyers, in "The Wings of War, Part 2".
Mulch is a fairly level-headed Viking, often acting as the straight man to Bucket's stupidity. He also seems to be goodhearted. However, he can also be selfish as he sometimes takes advantage of Bucket's dimwitted but goodhearted nature.
Abilities and Skills
Combat: Mulch is a skilled combatant, able to knock out an armed Berserker soldier with just an eel.

He is also the other Viking with multiple horns from Berk the others being Ruffnut and Tuffnut Thorston and Mildew but he left for Outcast Island.

- If you look at his missing body parts, you can see that he is an opposite image of Gobber, who has lost his left arm and right leg. Mulch lost his right arm and left leg.
- Mulch resembles R2-D2 from Star Wars and Pintel form Pirates of the Caribbean because he is short but smart and has a tall but unintelligent companion.
- He, along with Bucket and Gobber, seem to be the most loyal Vikings to Stoick the Vast because Mulch, Gobber, and Bucket were the only Vikings to help Stoick protect Toothless. ("When Lightning Strikes")
- Mulch is the second person to get a new voice actor in the TV series, the first being Ruffnut.
- Mulch wears the same tunic and pants as Gobber did during Snoggletog. (Gift of the Night Fury)
- In Race to the Edge, Mulch in Fishlegs' dream played a horn. ("Follow the Leader")
- However, in the dream, Mulch had both hands.
- In School of Dragons, Valka mentions that Mulch was a teenager when she was taken away from Berk, meaning that Mulch is between 30 and 40 years old. Valka also mentions that was as round when he was young as he is now.
