Hiccup and Toothless Rtte Render
This is the page for the dragon character. You may be looking for the Race to the Edge episode.

"This dragon, Snuffnut, shall be my lifelong companion. I shall train him. I shall teach him. I shall share my life with him. My inner thoughts and demons! The spirit of my brother shall always be by my side."
―Ruffnut making the decision of keeping Snuffnut[src]

Snuffnut is a Changewing who was presumed to have eaten Tuffnut Thorston in the episode Snuffnut.


Becoming Ruffnut's new "Brother"

"It's all my fault! My undying love for my brother will be the end of this glorious beast!"
―Ruffnut regretting her decisions[src]
When Throk wants to make Ruffnut his bride, Tuffnut fakes his death, making the riders believe he was eaten by a Changewing, so that Ruffnut can go with Throk. Instead, Ruffnut paints Tuffnut on the Changewing's belly and names him Snuffnut, making him her new brother. However, Snuffnut attacks her, only to be saved by Throk who gives the dragon fish.

While talking to Fishlegs and Snotlout, Throk realizes that he must train Snuffnut in order to earn Ruffnut's heart. Throk jumps on Snuffnut's back in order to ride him, but the dragon tries to get rid of him while flying through the air. His pack aids him in the fight and another Changewing almost kills Throk. Fortunately, he is saved in time by Hiccup. However, because of the painting, Snuffnut cannot camouflage completely and is not accepted by the pack. Then, Ruffnut and Tuffnut lure him in a waterfall where his painting is washed off, and he returns to his pack, leaving the Edge fully camouflaged.

Physical Appearance

Snuffnut looks like any ordinary Changewing. He is red in color with yellow wing edges.


Unlike most Changewings, Snuffnut didn't try to fly away from the riders. He even let Ruffnut paint his belly. However, he didn't let Throk ride him, showing that he is still a wild dragon.


  • He is the second Changewing trained, the first being Phantom.
