Books Franchise

Snotlout Jorgenson, Snotface Snotlout in the books, is a character from How to Train Your Dragon, both the book and films.He is deceased in the books but is still alive in the movies and the TV series. He is 15 years old in the first film, 18 or 19 years old in Race to the Edge and 20 years old in the sequel.


Dragon Training and End of the Dragon War

Snotlout is rumored to still be Hiccup's cousin, but he definitely doesn't treat Hiccup that way. While this idea came from the book, they're more like rivals rather than relatives of the family (though their relationship in the books is even more strained where there is quite an enmity between them). Throughout the movie series, he has an obvious crush on Astrid. He tries on several occasions to flirt with her through various means, such as by "impressing" her with his strength or "ability to block out the sun", though he fails each time. When Hiccup teaches the Viking youths how to befriend Dragons, Snotlout seems to be the only one who is actually afraid, reaching for a spearhead before Astrid discourages him. Under Hiccup's tutelage, he successfully befriends a Monstrous Nightmare, which he flies during the battle with the Red Death, though he is knocked off and forced to attack its eyes head on with his hammer (and is somewhat successful).

Although he would often taunt Hiccup over his lack of skill, he never seemed to hold the same level of dislike for him that he did in the books. When Hiccup starts doing well in Dragon Training, Snotlout quickly joins the ranks of his adoring fans. When Hiccup is shown to have survived his encounter with the Red Death, Snotlout actually sheds a tear in relief.

Hunt for the Boneknapper

Snotlout then went with Gobber, Phil, and the other teens aboard a ship to go after the Boneknapper. During their voyage, Snotlout refused to believe all the stories of Gobber's encounter with his boneknapper. After being shipwrecked, he helped Gobber set a trap for it. Snotlut and the other teens still refused to believe him until the Boneknapper came up behind them and trapped. However, they were then saved when Gobber finally gave the Boneknapper his belt buckle. Snotlout, saying that he actually believed Gobber's stories, then returned to Berk by flying on the Boneknapper.[4]

First Snoggletog with Dragons

During Snoggletog, Snotlout and Hookfang were hanging ornaments. However, Hookfang then went with the other dragons to the Rookery. Snotlout was at first, but then partook in celebrating by trying Astrid's Yaknog. Snotlout and the others then discovered that Fishlegs was keeping Meatlug locked up after Hiccup freed her.

They then discovered that Meatlug was a girl laying eggs. Snotlout then went with Astrid's plan to use the eggs as gifts for everyone. However, the eggs exploded and ruined the holiday. However, Hiccup, the dragons and their offspring then returned to Berk. At the Great Hall, Snotlout then celebrated with Hookfang's offspring.[5]

Welcoming the New Recruit

Integrating Dragons and War with the Outcasts

Snotlout became one of the main Dragon Trainers at the Berk Dragon Training Academy.[6]

Despite Hookfang's disobedience, Snotlout has shown that he cares for Hookfang, being particularly relieved when the Dragon—who had seemingly gone mad and was rampaging through the village, to the point where it appeared that Gobber would have to kill him—turned out to merely be suffering from toothache (although he attempted to pass off his enthusiastic hug of Hookfang after the tooth was taken out).[7]

Due to the fact that his dragon, Hookfang, often disrespects Snotlout, and almost never follows his commands. When the Dragons are exiled, Hookfang is the only one to run away.[8]

Snotlout he's is a good dragon 2

Snotlout in the TV Series, sad that Gobber is going to kill Hookfang

Snotlout has proven that in some ways he can back up his boasting. He is usually an able fighter (when not trying to impress the ladies), and he is in very good physical shape. He wins all the Viking based Thawfest Games with relative ease. Only when dragon events are introduced does he struggle. He still wins the Thawfest Games, but only because Hiccup allows him to. Even with Hiccup's good sportsmanship in the end, Snotlout remains completely ungrateful and gloats in his victory.[9]

When Hiccup, Toothless and Snotlout were stranded on Outcast Island, Snotlout managed to successfully hold his own against an adult Outcast in a fight when armed only with a metal rod (although he still required Toothless's help to defeat his opponent).The stranding on Outcast island forced Hiccup and Snotlout to work together. It was a seriously rough time because both boys were rivals, and Snotlout was intentionally provocative. Eventually Snotlout lost his temper enough to vent hugely hurtful insults at Hiccup and to really unintentionally reveal a slight twinge of envy over Hiccup's popularity and courage. But even after all their fighting, Snotlout was quick to come and aid in Hiccup's rescue. He and Toothless worked well together as a team and saved Hiccup from the Outcasts who had captured him. The episode ended on a very high note for Hiccup and Snotlout with both boys seeming to gain a much greater appreciation for one another.[10]

Snotlout was also a bit of a profiteer when he inadvertently stole Changewing eggs, believing they were stones of good fortune. As payment from Mrs. Larson for her stone, Snotlout received her son, Gustav, for the stone. He also acquired a set of axes from Bucket and livestock from other villagers. However, Snotlout was force to give his "stone" and Gustav when he was confronted by Fishlegs, who force him to give it back to the Changewing.[11]

Outcast War Continues and War with the Berserkers

Snotlout then took part in Hiccup's Dragon Flight Club after Stoick banned flying. Snotlout was able to spot a Typhoomerang. Snotlout and Hookfang were then able to evade Stoick and Thornado on their way home. Snotlout then saw that the Outcasts were attacking. With Astrid, he was able to force Alvin's Changewings back to their Island.[12]

Following the Screaming Death's attack, a softer side of Snotlout is demonstrated. Since the Outcast attacks, Snotlout has been training Hookfang constantly, refusing to give him a break as he believes "rest is for the weak", which his father had taught him. However, he works Hookfang so much that the dragon begins to lose his ability to flame up and is dying from exhaustion. Though Snotlout tries to hide it, it becomes apparent that he cares for Hookfang as he begins to cry and worry for him. He was also shown to be concerned when his father told Snotlout that "if our sword is not cutting properly, we sharpen it. But if our sword cannot be sharpened any longer, we get a new one", insinuating Snotlout to get a new dragon if Hookfang doesn't recover.[13]

When the Bork papers told of Fireworm Island, Snotlout rushes over with the rest of the Dragon Training Academy to figure out a solution to Hookfang's exhaustion and discovers a cave of Fireworms and fire-combs. He is willing to risk his life to steal a piece of fire-comb and incur the wrath of the Fireworm Queen in the hopes that having Hookfang eating the fire-comb will help him recover his flames. Hookfang ultimately gives the fire-comb back to the Fireworm Queen to protect Snotlout from her wrath, and the Fireworm Queen restores his flames. Snotlout rejoices and decides to take it easy until Hookfang fully recovers (stating that his dad knew nothing about dragons) but Hookfang begins to flip Snotlout in the air, demonstrating that he has fully recovered.[14]

Snotlout spends most of his screen time flirting with Astrid; however, it seems that the point had been partly get a rise out of her, as he appears both disturbed and grossed out when she pretends to flirt back in an overly sweet manner.[15]

Snotlout, despite hearing Hiccup command a retreat in the practice drill, orders Hookfang to shoot Gobber's catapult. The catapult malfunctions and shoots at Astrid. After landing, Snotlout shows no regret in almost killing Astrid and doesn't apologize. When Hiccup "grounds" him, he shows anger and flies off on Hookfang to an island and is attacked by the Screaming Death, and gets knocked unconscious. The villagers celebrate when they assume he is dead, but groan when Snotlout awakens briefly to claim he had captured Alvin the Treacherous.

Snotlout yet again defied Hiccup's commands and repeated his mistake, but freeing the Screaming Death's Mother from Dagur in the process. He later admitted to Hiccup that he was being reckless. Hiccup, having learned of the destruction of Stoick and Alvin the Treacherous's friendship, assured Snotlout that he had only been trying to do the right thing and cancelled his suspension from the Dragon Academy.[16]

The two boys soon shook hands and became friends again in the end.[17]

They were able to drive the wild dragons away. However, Fishlegs was then captured by the wild dragons and taken to Forest Island.

Edge of Disaster, Part 2

As Snotlout, Hiccup and Johann went to rescue Fishlegs, they realized that these dragons had been tortured by the Dragon Hunters and were using it as a distraction. As Hiccup, Johann, and Meatlug distracted the wild dragons, Snotlout tried to rescue Fishlegs. However, Fishlegs caused Meatlug and the other wild dragons to come back.

Snotlout and the other riders then took Scardian's pack back to their island.

They then got into a arguement about Spitelout disobeying Stoick's orders.

Dawn of the Dragon Racers

Following the defeat of Dagur and Alvin's truce, Snotlout and the other riders had a little contest to see who could gather the most sheep. Snotlout got the entire village to get Hiccup to have dragon races instead of the Regatta. However, during one of the races, Snotlout causes Astrid to crash and break her arm. Snotlout then gets Hiccup to continue the races. Following the first official race, Snotlout and the twins thought they had won when they got the black sheep. However, it is revealed that they cheated and lose the match to Hiccup and Fishlegs.

Snotlout built the Sheep Launcher for the Dragon Races.

How to Train Your Dragon 2

In this movie, Snotlout has apparently given up on Astrid, as she is officially with Hiccup, and started to hit on Ruffnut along with Fishlegs. He has grown up, looking more like his father, and seems to be a bit less arrogant and obnoxious.

Attacked by Bees

In the game, School of Dragons, Snot lout appears in several player quests. In the quest, "Honey, I Stung Snotlout!" he tried to get some honey to eat from a wild bee nest on School of Dragons Island and gets stung many times. Hookfang rushes to Phlegma (the Botanist in the game) with a note for help. The player then meets Snotlout and also retrieves honey - safely - to use medicinally on Snotlout's stings.


Snotlout looked somewhat muscular like his book series counterpart. In the first movie and two previous seasons, he's always worn his helmet with spiral sheep horns, his tunic tucked in his pants with open-stitching and a black vest over it, dark gray bracers on his arms, and matching fur boots. In the second movie, he's grown his facial hair. He wears the same helmet, but also has gained a leather green-blue tunic with a fur vest over it, spike-emblazoned brown bracers, and boots. In Race to The Edge, he is seen without his fur vest.


Snotlout is highly arrogant, bordering on narcissistic, and prone to grandiose delusions of perfection, popularity and extreme attractiveness, and consequentially his egomania causes him to have a huge problem with authority or being able to admit responsibility for his mistakes or misdeeds, for which he always has some terrible justification. He appears to consider himself the smartest and strongest of the teens and wants to be praised and admired accordingly, despite the others usually considering him an annoying, immature idiot with a colossal ego. His selfishness and egomania cause him to often be inconsiderate and exploitative towards others, and will often put the others down to make himself look better. In interviews, Jonah Hill has said that deep down Snotlout knows he is not the best but still wants to be thought of as such, implying his vainglorious posing is more about overcompensation. He likes to think he can handle everything, but when he can't, he is not above asking for help. He is confrontational, brutally frank, and stubborn. In race to the edge Snotlout is not as egocentric as he was, but has become highly sarcastic toward hiccup's more dangerous plans.

From the glimpses of his family in the television show, it is easy to see how Snotlout is a product of his upbringing, since his father, Spitelout, is shown to be just as arrogant and disrespectful as his son, and places great pressure on Snotlout to meet his incredibly high standards and preserve the family reputation. Earning his father's love and approval clearly causes Snotlout a great deal of insecurity and anxiety, and in this way he is similar to Hiccup, though it is unacknowledged, since Snotlout either keeps it to himself or is in denial about his father's clearly unfair treatment of him.

In the television series, one of Snotlout's more outstanding traits is his adversarial relationship with Hiccup, whom he often deliberately disrespects and ridicules. In that he is not unlike Alvin, who did much the same thing to Stoick. Snotlout will regularly attempt to undermine Hiccup in front of the others by trying to appear more knowledgeable or worthy as a leader, but since he is neither of these things, he often just ends up making himself look like an idiot. Snotlout has stated that he thinks of Hiccup and himself as arch-enemies and states that they are not friends, though this view is largely unfounded and not reciprocated in any way by Hiccup, who refers to Snotlout as his friend despite being regularly exasperated by his behavior. Snotlout's antagonism of Hiccup is partially a result of his dislike of authority figures, but is also implied to stem from deep jealousy of Hiccup's standing within the tribe, the respect he receives from the other teens despite being previously being thought of as a runt, and (probably most of all) his close, semi-romantic relationship with Astrid, whom Snotlout has a huge crush on and relentlessly, arrogantly flirts with, despite Astrid being repulsed by him to the point of nausea.

Abilities and Skills

Snotlout is actually a very competent fighter, so his bragging is not entirely baseless.

  • Strength and Fighting Skills: Snotlout can lift heavy objects, like sheep over his shoulder, and even manage to run with it. He was also able to pin Hookfang's horns to the ground and clamp a Monstrous Nightmare's mouth shut. When training for the Thawfest Games, which proved that he was physically the most powerful among the teens, he was seen pulling small trees out of the ground and then throwing them.[9] Additionally. He appears to have enhanced strength as he sends an Outcast soldier flying several feet away with a single kick, and appears to be skilled in combat as he easily beats Savage with a connecting rod, he is also able to beat multiple Outcast soldiers in hand to hand combat.[23] However, it is interesting to note he was occasionally defeated by much weaker opponents, such as Terrible Terrors and sheep.
  • Endurance and Stamina: Snotlout's stamina and endurance has proven to be high, seeing how he performed in the Thawfest Games. He still came out fine after being hit in the face by a rock[9], or bitten multiple times by his Terror. Another example of this is when he got crushed by Meatlug and her rather heavy Rider.[24]
  • Accuracy: In the Thawfest Games, Snotlout has been seen throwing axes at targets with great accuracy, even without looking[9]. However, he used this ability once again by throwing Pain to save Meatlug.[24] Also, he has skills with a bow and arrow like the others.
  • Acrobatics: Snotlout has good reflexes, being able to dodge the attacks of enemies and being the only one who could hold his balance on a running log during the Thawfest Games.[9] He can also balance by standing on Hookfang's neck. Astrid, however, might have beaten him in Thawfest, if it wasn't for Fishlegs messing up her attempts.[9]
  • Dragon Training and Riding: Despite being part of the Academy, Snotlout is probably the worst Dragon Trainer of them all, however, this may just be because of Hookfang's stubbornness. He managed to train the stubborn and aggressive Hookfang in the film, though Hiccup did the most of the work, if not all. Hookfang has been shown to often tease and disobey Snotlout. The Terrible Terror he trained constantly bit him, Snotlout claiming that is what he was taught, yet this proved useful when Pain used his jaw strength to save Meatlug from the Outcasts. Despite this, he did found out you can calm down Monstrous Nightmares by pinning their horns to the ground, showing he isn't entirely bad at Dragon Training. Seeing how Hookfang flew almost as fast as Toothless in the Thawfest Games, it is possible Hookfang's speed increased as a result from Snotlout's training, though this may not be the case as hard training on his dragon caused Hookfang to become ill.[14] Snotlout also figured out a powerful combination attack, using Hookfang's Wing Blast and his breath weapon. This attack was used against Dagur the Deranged and his soldiers. He also discovered the Deadly Nadder's skill of 'Single Spine Shot', by tapping the back of Stormfly's head. He also did great job to impress Hiccup when practicing rescue skills for Vikings, but Hookfang blasted fire and stomped on the prop Vikings.[24]
  • Teaching: When Snotlout had become convinced he was going to die, he planned to recruit Gustav, so he could be his successor. Thanks to Snotlout, Gustav bonded with his own Dragon, a Monstrous Nightmare named Fanghook. Snotlout encouraged Gustav in the battle with Dagur and his soldiers, causing their mission to succeed. This shows that Snotlout can be a good teacher, though in own 'special' way.
  • Intelligence & Inventing: He is not the brightest compared to Hiccup, Fishlegs, and Astrid but he does his best to try to be smart, often times, as he shows himself to be smarter then the twins since they can't seem to get past the number 3. This is made apparent when he told Hiccup that Toothless didn't want Hiccup to interfere with the battle of his arch nemesis, a Whispering Death. He managed to build a raft but wasn't successful as it sank a few seconds after he got on it. He even knew that the trainers will never know who is the best at training dragons since they did not have a level playing field. He also understood the concept of air mail when he saw the letter that the twins didn't know about as he said that it will be soon to be catch up to be useful someday. Snotlout was also taught by his mother how stitch and sew objects together. Snotlout demonstrated this when he and Hiccup made armor out the Screaming Death's scales in order to rescue the other riders from Ryker Grimborn's Dragon Hunters. He is not as proficient compared to Hiccup when building inventions but he managed to create a Sheep Launcher. It took him 32 times to get it to be successful. Dawn of the Dragon Racers, and this invention is used in the dragon race in the HTTYD2.
  • Climbing: Just like his dragon Hookfang, he shown to be great climber as he shown in the Thawfest Games with no sign of struggle even when getting hit in the face with rocks.
  • Dragon Roar: He first try to use this skill by trying to make roar of Changewing but according to Fishlegs was wrong.[25] Few years later he had master his roar for Monstrous Nightmare to call Hookfang.[19]
  • Stitching: Snotlout is taught how to stitch by his mother, and he was able to cross-stitch Screaming Death scales onto Toothless and Hookfang as protective armor from Dragon Root arrows. Snotlout later showed regret at not using a lock-stitch to fasten the armor on when pieces started breaking away.
  • Singing: Snotlout shows to be a good singer when he sang to a baby Fireworm[26], and when he sang to an adult Death Song. However, when he song to Garff, the baby Death Song shot amber at Snotlout because he insulted the dragon.[27]
  • Acting: As the only the Viking not yet seen by the Dragon Hunters, Snotlout was at first, in his role as Sir Ulgerthorpe, able to fool Viggo Grimborn and his brother Ryker by posing as a wealthy guest at his Dragon Auction. However, he exposed himself when he threw coins out when the twins were on one of the auction cages.[1]
  • Hypnotizing: Snotlout is a skilled hypnotist as he's able to hypnotize Fishlegs from his usually meek and sweet-loving behaviour to the heroic personality of Thor Bonecrusher.



Hookfang is a lot like his owner, always being reckless and wild. It may seem like he doesn't respect Snotlout, always hitting him with parts of his body (mostly his tail), but deep down Hookfang does indeed love Snotlout. Hookfang and Snotlout were each willing to risk their lives to protect each other from the Fireworm Queen. This shows that the two are very close, even if they don't always show or admit it. Hookfang always teases Snotlout, usually by biting and slapping him, in order to either get back at him, or hide his affection for him. Despite their bond, he wasn't willing to die alongside Snotlout by getting buried alive. Snotlout also showed he was worried for Hookfang's well-being in the second film, where he even ignored a chance to hug Ruffnut and instead ran to hug his dragon.

Though their relationship is very sync of personality could be result to be bad of terms to show the other riders that they don't want to be too soft on each other like Fishlegs and Meatlug relationship are too close to act like huge relationship. As Hookfang shown to be very happy when he was help by Gobber from his toothache as he show huge amount of affection to his rider and did the same as Snotlout was laughing for joy to show their great love of each other.

Though they don't really show it when they are right next to each other, they worry about each other. In the Race to the Edge episode, Blindsided, Snotlout is really worried and asks Hiccup if Hookfang is safe.

Spitelout Jorgenson

Snotlout supposedly fears his dad, who in turn, constantly pressurizes and undermines his son. Snotlout is shown to respect his father deeply, though their relationship is fairly rocky. Although afraid of him, Snotlout seems to want to earn some form of approval from his dad. Spitelout always puts huge amounts of pressure on Snotlout, which could in turn explain Snotlout's overall behavior. This was demonstrated during the Thawfest Games, where Spitelout was very disappointed in Snotlout, even slightly threatening. This was because the Jorgenson clan had won every Thawfest so far, and he did not want his own son being the first to lose. However, after Hiccup allowed Snotlout to win, Spitelout was shown to proud of his son, letting him sit on his shoulder whilst the crowd cheered.

Later, Spitelout's view of others and things in general are revealed, revealing that he thinks and has taught Snotlout that 'rest is for the weak', and that he views dragons as nothing more then simple weapons. This was proven when Spitelout compared Hookfang to a sword, saying that if a sword can't be sharpened any longer, you have to get a new one. Snotlout was shocked by this, his father not seeming to care about Hookfang's condition. At the end, when Hookfang is better again, Snotlout claims that his father is wrong and knows nothing about Dragons.

Three years later, Snotlout has seemingly let go his fear for his Father's disappointment of him. Spitelout is even shown to be smiling when Snotlout allows the twins to score points.

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III

"Your suspension is . . . well . . . suspended."
―Hiccup to Snotlout as they make amends[src]

Snotlout has been known for his conflict between him and Hiccup. This conflict was especially seen when Snotlout, Hiccup and Toothless were caught in a storm and ended up on Outcast Island. Snotlout seemed to show jealously, stating that Hiccup was the one who 'killed the Red Death' and the one who had 'the metal leg'.

One of the biggest differences between him and his book counterpart, is that Snotlout never hesitates to help Hiccup when he's in danger. One of the prime examples in Stryke Out, when Hiccup and Toothless get caught in a trap that Snotlout unintentionally set off, he was hesitant in leaving them behind. When the duo had been taken, Snotlout showed both signs of guilt and determination to find them, more so than most of the other Riders. After rescuing Hiccup and Toothless, he acted as if he wasn't worried about them, despite his actions before.

Deep down, Snotlout has a difficult-to-see respect for Hiccup. When Toothless finally returned, Snotlout was very happy to see the two friends reunited.[5] By the end of Cast Out II, Hiccup and Snotlout seemed to have resolved their differences and became friends, Snotlout saving him and shaking his hand. Over the course of Race to the Edge, the two continue to bicker once in awhile, but they still have developed more respect for one another. Usually Snotlout is against most of Hiccup's plans, but still follows them anyway.

In Tone Death, Snotlout claims to be over Astrid and tells Hiccup he can have her.[27] Snotlout was very excited for Hiccup when he was christened Chief of Berk, even doing a fist pump.

Astrid Hofferson

Just like Hiccup, Snotlout has a major crush on Astrid throughout most of the franchise and is very vocal of his attraction. However, unlike Hiccup his feelings are however pretty one-sided as Astrid always ends up either mocking, ignoring or rejecting his flirtations and advances. It is implied Snotlout secretly enjoys riling Astrid up.

In spite of not getting along most of the time, Astrid and Snotlout grow to share a friendship and (with help of Hiccup) learn to work together. When Hookfang was unwell and Snotlout was attempting to cover up his feelings for his dragon, Astrid was quite friendly towards him, showing that she doesn't mind being just friends.

When Astrid contracted the Scourge of Odin, Snotlout showed genuine concern for her well being. This showed that despite the roughness between them, Snotlout does care about Astrid as a member of the team.

By the time of Tone Death, Snotlout claims to have given up on pursuing Astrid with Heather joining the Riders. It doesn't last long though as he starts flirting with Astrid again in the next episode meaning still hasn't quite let go of her yet.

Tuffnut Thorston

Tuffnut is shown to be very close friends with Snotlout. He and Ruffnut sometimes even help Snotlout with pranks and tricks. However, the three of them also trick and tease one another quite often, as was demonstrated, when Snotlout distracted them with his medal[25]. In Frozen and Fright of Passage, they have been seen teasing and humiliating Snotlout.[28]

Ruffnut Thorston

Three years after the war with the Berserkers and in the events How to Train Your Dragon 2, Snotlout has transferred his affection to Ruffnut and has been constantly hitting on her, even calling her his "princess", despite Astrid pointing out that she tried to bury him alive for a few hours.[29]

It is implied that Ruffnut is the first girl Snotlout has had genuine feelings for.


Like Fishlegs, Snotlout quickly grew a crush on Heather. He was the first to find her and he immediately began attempting to impress her with his dragon training abilities. However, like with Astrid, he was only interested in Heather for shallow reasons.

To find out more about Hookfang, Heather described him as being the most impressive dragon, most likely to try and get Snotlout into telling her dragon secrets. Snotlout, however, stated that he knew this already. Snotlout outwardly showed signs of annoyance at Heather's interest in Hookfang, raising his voice before changing the subject, wanting to talk about him and her instead and how he saved her life.

Snotlout continued his advances when they met again in Have Dragon Will Travel, Part 1. Snotlout's reaction to Heather being a part of the Dragon Hunters was not seen, though he seemed disappointed when he learned she was spying on them.

Eventually, after Heather joined the Dragon Riders, Snotlout claimed to have given up on pursuing Astrid to focus on Heather but Heather ends up choosing Fishlegs over him, as she was attracted to smarts.

Snotlout was in shock when he found out about their secret correspondence and didn't understand why Heather would prefer bookworm Fishlegs over a stronger Viking like him. Nevertheless, her relationship with Fishlegs doesn't stop Snotlout from flirting with Heather. Snotlout also had dream in which Heather claimed that she secretly wanted to marry him.[30]

Fishlegs Ingerman

Snotlout is somewhat of a bully towards Fishlegs, much like he does with Hiccup. He often mocks him for his ideas, or dragon knowledge, or sometimes even hurts or intimidates him. He eventually gained Fishlegs' respect, at least for a little while, when Fishlegs went Berserk and successfully intimidated Snotlout into giving him the Changewing egg.[31] He also seemed to care for Fishlegs when Meatlug was captured[24], probably because Fishlegs helped him when Hookfang was sick[14]. Snotlout then became enamored with Fishleg's alternate persona, Thor Bonecrusher and was heartbroken when he went back to being plain Fishlegs.[32]

After that, Snotlout and Fishlegs fought for Ruffnut's affection.[29]

Gustav Larson

When Gustav's mother, Mrs. Larson, traded Gustav to Snotlout in exchange for a 'Stone of Good Fortune', which was actually a Changewing egg. Gustav quickly took a liking to Snotlout, and become quickly his assistant and rename him 'Tiny Snotlout'.[31] When Snotlout was convinced he was going to die, he trained Gustav to become his successor, which eventually led to getting his own Dragon, Fanghook.[33] Gustav seems to admire and respect Snotlout. However, he is also shown teasing him at various opportunities.[34]

Stoick the Vast

Although not much is explained, Snotlout seemed to respect his chieftain. Stoick appeared to be on good terms in Snotlout, even though that the latter sometimes caused mayhem several times, though not as much as the twins. Snotlout was saddened when Stoick died in How To Train Your Dragon 2, and openly shed tears for his late chieftain. He was among the Vikings to fire a flaming arrow onto Stoick's funeral pyre in his honor.

Alvin the Treacherous

Like most Berkians, if not all, Snotlout originally hated Alvin. In the beginning, he claimed that he wasn't afraid of the him, even trying to attack him. However, when actually meeting Alvin, he quickly changes his mind and hands over the weapon, a bludgeon that he lost when he was a baby. As the series continued, Snotlout fought the Outcasts alongside with the Riders. In the last episodes of Defenders of Berk, Snotlout was saved by Alvin from the Screaming Death. When Hookfang brought them back to the Berk, Snotlout claimed to have captured Alvin, before fainting. Later, when Alvin was locked up, he tells Snotlout that the two of them aren't really that different, both being reckless, bold and questioning the authorities of their leaders. He even released Alvin to help to fight of Dagur and his army then later lock him up in the dragon academy. Snotlout's decision to release Alvin was later proven by Hiccup to be the right one.[17]

Dagur the Deranged

Even though Dagur is evil and almost killed Barf and Belch, Snotlout admired the young Berserker Chieftain greatly.[35] Snotlout reacts slightly upset when Dagur didn't even remember his name, thinking it's 'Snothat'.[36] His view on Dagur quickly changed, as Dagur become a frequent enemy of the Riders, and Berk in general, and didn't hesitate to fight him.


Despite believing that Snotlout was one of the Grimborns' Dragon Hunters[37], Mala chose to ride with him on Hookfang. Snotlout was surprised that Mala chose him and was delighted to hear about a prophecy about a man from afar coming to her island and save her in the field of battle. Snotlout was also delighted and surprised that Mala wanted to choose him to be her King (although he did not succeed in the training required).[38]
