The Razorwhip is a Sharp Class dragon from Dragons: Race to the Edge.

Official Description

"One single blade of the Razorwhip's tail is as deadly as the sharpest battle-axe.
Arguably one of the most dangerous dragons the riders have ever faced, the Razorwhip has an aggressive and deadly nature. It has a barbed telescopic tail that can squeeze the life out of any Viking or dragon, or slice anything it comes into contact with to pieces. It is so dangerous that even the tears from its eyes are dangerous. It is extremely agile and maneuvers incredibly. Its only known vulnerability is its propensity to eat sea slugs.
Razorwhips are reclusive by choice, due to extreme mistrust of both humans and dragons. However, those who are able to prove their worthiness to a Razorwhip will have made a powerful friend and ally for life. The first Razorwhip encountered by the Dragon Riders is Windshear, who has teamed up with Heather

"Try to get on this Dragon's good side... if you can find one. Their toxic breath and razor-sharp tail make them dangerous from top to bottom!
Don't get too close! This Dragon will breathe toxins on its enemies. Talk about bad breath!

Physical Appearance

Egg

In School of Dragons, the Razorwhip egg has numerous bands of black and sliver on it. It is a regular oval and appears to be rather shiny. In Dragons: Rise of Berk, the Razorwhip's egg appears to be shiny bronze. It is slightly triangular shaped. There are several plates layered on it that make it seem sharp. It resembles a pine cone in a way.

Hatchling to Adult

The Razorwhip is a four-legged dragon with a long, slender neck, as well as metal-like, reflective scales. It has a long ledge on the top of its snout and a short, stumpy one on the bottom. Its body shape appears similar to a Windstriker covered in metal armor and two talons on each foot. The Razorwhip appears to have a short, spiky sail and has spikes all along its wings. Its teeth seem to wrap around the edge of its mouth, and it has high ridges over its eyes that resemble eye-lashes. The Razorwhip's snout mostly resembles that of a baryonyx.

Titan Wing

The Titan form is very similar to the normal Razorwhip, though is darker in color and scaling is larger. The eye color is now red. In School of Dragons, Titans have lighter coloring, almost white. They also have extra spikes going down their neck and back.

Abilities

Arguably one of the most dangerous dragons, the Razorwhip has an aggressive and deadly nature. In addition to the dangers implied by its name, Razorwhips possess a barrage of alternative defenses and skills, such as lacrimal toxins (poisonous tears) and extreme precision and maneuverability in flight.

Speed and Agility

Razorwhips have been shown to be quite acrobatic dragons as their metal-like bodies have no lack of flexibility at all. They are able to twist their neck and their tail as well. They can also tie themselves into a knot, according to Bucket.

It was shown from Windshear that the speed of Razorwhip is fast enough to be as near as a Night Fury.

Strength and Combat

The Razorwhip has shown to be able to pull a tree off the ground quickly, and drag it in the air at full speed without any struggle. They were described to be as powerful as a Typhoomerang, as Windshear fought one. But it is unknown who had won, and Windshear was badly wounded. It is described to be as strong as a Typhoomerang meaning they could lift possible amount the weight that Torch has done in the past as proven to hold the weight of Shattuermaster, Dagur, and Heather no sign of a struggle as she was still flying very fast.

The Razorwhip from the Dragon Arena was shown to be able to fight against Toothless the Night Fury as it was able to leave scratch on the foot fast enough before Toothless could react to dodge but soon was defeated in short battle from intelligent battler.

Whip-like Tail

The Razorwhip has a telescopic tail that it can use as a whip. and can even be used to grip objects[3]. This tail is also extremely sharp, seen to be able to cut wood and rock.

The rest of their body is quite flexible. The Dragon Eye indicates that a Razorwhip can use its tail to squeeze the life out of its victim.

Barbs

Viggo's Flightmare 101

Like Deadly Nadders and Whispering Deaths, Razorwhips can shoot spines from their tails. They are incredibly sharp and can pierce through wood and stone with utmost ease. The sharpness of the barbs are compared to that of a Speed Stinger's tail by Fishlegs.

Firepower

Fighter Razorwhip 26

The Razorwhip's breath can burn the flesh off a human from a hundred feet away. The intense heat of the Razorwhip's fire can be shown from its bright blue color. However, it might have been an exaggeration from the Dragon Eye, because the twins, Snotlout and Barf and Belch were able to survive at very close impact. After being shot, the fireball will hit its target and then explode.

Lacrimal Toxin

Razorwhips have extremely poisonous tears.

Endurance and Stamina

As it was shown that the Razorwhip is able to take the attacks from Typhoomerang but can take serious damage from large opponents, according to Heather as her dragon Windshear has proven needed to be treatment of care to heal.

As for Razorwhip like Windshear took amount of pain from Shattermaster the Gronckle under the belly as a sign of weakness to Razorwhip.

The Razorwhip has an amazing stamina as it is able to travel high speed on a short to mid distance as it was being chased by a Night Fury like Toothless and was still able to travel

Behavior and Personality

Razorwhips are said to love eating Sea Slugs.

It is also shown to be highly intelligent, distracting Hiccup before hurling a tree towards them. The Razorwhip also has a sense of humor and is somewhat vain, taunting its opponents when they are defeated.

Razorwhips are reclusive by choice, due to extreme mistrust of both humans and dragons.They are shown to be highly territorial and protective, even picking up fights with the most docile of dragons.

However, those who are able to prove their worthiness to a Razorwhip will have made a powerful friend and ally for life. Windshear, for example, is incredibly protective of Heather and will stop at nothing to protect her, even if she is riding another dragon.

Weaknesses

A Razorwhip's love for consuming sea slugs can be used against them, giving its opponents a hint of their location (somewhere with an abundance of sea slugs).

The belly of a Razorwhip could be weakspot as proven by Shattermaster when he hit Windshear's underbelly with his clubbed tail, which caused her to fall and left her stunned for a moment.

Dragon hunters knows to chained the tail in order for Razorwhip to use for defense.

Training

These aggressive dragons are hard to train, due to their reclusive nature. However, trusting the dragon, and showing that you are worthy of its trust will win over this dragon's heart. Heather, for example, nursed hers to health when she was badly injured and made use of the dragon training methods the other riders taught her, presumably placing her hand against its snout to form a bond via a physical bond. While the dragon is still somewhat hostile to others, it is incredibly close to her.

Appearances

Dragons: Race to the Edge

Season 1

In first indication of the Razorwhip was during Bucket's recount of a rogue dragon that attacked his fishing boat in Have Dragon Will Travel, Part 1. Traumatised by the experience, Bucket described the dragon and screamed as a sketch of the dragon was produced. After examining the boat and research with the Dragon Eye, the gang deduced it as the Razorwhip and headed to Sea Slug Island. Over there, each of the riders slowly get picked off by what seems to be the rogue dragon and rider duo. Hiccup and Toothless quickly spot it when patrolling the cliffs. They give chase, only to be met by a fierce opponent. After being tricked into a near-death experience, they exert all their force and take it down. The rider then reveals herself as Heather and the dragon as Windshear. After a series of apologies and clarifications, she begins to boast about the Razorwhip's abilities and how she trained it. The duo then appeared in several other episodes.

Season 3

In Stryke Out, the Fighter Razorwhip was first seen along with the other fighter dragons in a Dragon Fighting Arena. Later, it fought Toothless but lost when the Night Fury outsmarted it. After Hiccup tamed Whip-Slash and Steeltrap, a few hunters brought the dragon inside and put a manacle tight on its tail. Hiccup tried to melt the manacle with the help of the other dragons but failed. When the riders came to the rescue, Heather told Windshear to cut the manacle and they broke out. The Razorwhip destroyed the doors with its fire. It grabbed a hunter that mistreated it, threatened him and let him fall in front of the Triple Stryke. Then, the Razorwhip and the other dragons flew free to unknown location.

Games

Dragons: Rise of Berk

The Razorwhip appeared in Rise of Berk quite a while after the first episode with the Razorwhip was aired. The producers included Windshear and a exclusive Razorwhips, Thorstopian, a stockier group of individuals discovered by the twins.


School of Dragons

The Razorwhip became available in School of Dragons to, as requested by the School of Dragons community.


Trivia

  • The Razorwhip is one of the few dragon species that doesn't have forked tongues. The others are the Flightmare, the Woolly Howl, the Snow Wraith, the Snaptrapper, the Death Song and the Triple Stryke.
  • The Razorwhip looks strikingly similar to the Windstriker. This might be coincidence, or maybe the dragons are somehow closely related. They are both Sharp Class dragons.
  • Razorwhips have the strongest armor of all the Sharp Class dragons.
  • The Razorwhips have different eye colors: Windshear and the Razorwhip in School of Dragons have green eyes, in Rise of Berk and Exotic Razorwhip have yellow eyes, Fighter Razorwhip and Thorstopian have purple eyes and the Titan Wing in both games have red eyes.
  • Their bright blue fire breath is consistent with the extreme heat it is said to burn with, as blue fire is much hotter than red or yellow fire. It may also take inspiration from the atomic breath of the famous movie monster Godzilla.
  • In the books, there is a dragon called the Razorwing, possibly part of the Razorwhip's inspiration. Both species have distinct poisons; Razorwhips have tears and Razorwings shoot darts from their mouths.
  • The Razorwhip on Hiccup's map has two legs instead of four.
  • The Razorwhip drawing on Hiccup's map looks very similar to the Sword Stealer.
  • In School of Dragons, the Razorwhip lacks the large "eyelash." In Rise of Berk, their wings so not have extra spikes at the base.
  • In Rise of Berk, it says that the Razorwhip's breath is toxic. This could be an error with its breath getting mixed up with its tears.
