Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III
The Legend of Ragnarok
Phantom is a Changewing introduced in the Riders of Berk comics in the issue, The Legend of Ragnarok.
Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III and the Dragon Riders were attempting to train Phantom. However, Phantom was very violent and would shoot acid at everyone. She also repeatedly hypnotized Hiccup for a short while, which slowed down the training. Astrid had Toothless, Stormfly, and Barf and Belch corral Phantom back into her cage.
Hiccup later came back with Toothless, thinking that the large group of people and dragons was why Phantom would not respond to being trained. Hiccup was just making progress, when a horn blared, heralding the approach of a massive
After a long fought battle with the giant dragon, Hiccup came up with the idea to train Phantom to help in the battle. Hiccup succeeded in training Phantom, and later used her to hypnotize the Purple Death and put it back to sleep. She later had a slight argument with Toothless over who Hiccup liked more, but Hiccup told Toothless that he was always his number one, as well as giving Phantom her name.
Before being trained, Phantom was very violent and would shoot acid at anyone who came too close. She was also a little mischievous, as she constantly hypnotized Hiccup and sent him on wild adventures. But after Hiccup trained her, she became much less violent and willingly helped defeat the Purple Death. However, she was still a little bit violent, as she argued with Toothless towards the end.
Phantom is also very creative with her hypnosis, because she hypnotised Hiccup into doing crazy things like nesting in the rafters of the great hall and kissing Tuffnut.
Phantom disliked Hiccup at first, and repeatedly hypnotized and spat acid at him and was generally vicious towards him. But after Hiccup found out that Phantom didn't like the audience of the other dragon riders, he managed to train and befriend her.
Other Dragon Riders
While Hiccup was trying to train Phantom, Phantom didn't like the presence of the other riders and the audience. The others also didn't think that she could be trained.
Toothless didn't like Phantom at the start, because she kept hypnotizing Hiccup and spitting acid. Near the end, when Phantom was trained, Toothless still didn't like Phantom because he saw her as competition, but Hiccup assured Toothless that he would always be number one.
Phantom was hostile to the other dragons as well, and they put her back in her cage after she hypnotized Hiccup.
Training Phantom could be a reference to Hiccup and Fishlegs wanting to train a Changewing at the end of Gem of a Different Color.
Phantom is the only Changewing in the entire franchise to ever use its ability to hypnotize.
