First Appearence How to Train Your Dragon

Spitelout Jorgenson is a Viking in the film adaptation of How to Train Your Dragon. He is not named in the movie, only during the credits. He is Snotlout's father and appears to be second-in-command of the tribe. He is often seen with Stoick the Vast in battle and at Viking meetings.


In How to Train Your Dragon

Spitelout is first seen during the dragon raid at the beginning of the film. He is next seen when the adult Vikings discuss Stoick's suggestion to find the dragon's nest. He, along with others, sets sail for Helheim's Gate. They return sometime after, not having found the nest.

Spitelout is present for Hiccup's final exam, and helps Stoick to restrain Toothless. He is among the Vikings who force Toothless to lead them to the nest. When the Red Death attacks, Spitelout is instructed by Stoick to lead everyone to the other side of the island while Stoick keeps it busy. He witnesses Hiccup and Toothless defeating the Red Death, and is one of the many who greet Hiccup when he awakens, if you see him, He is seen with a Terrible Terror on his shoulder during the ending of the film, suggesting it is his dragon.

In the TV Series

Riders of Berk

Scar in right eye!

Spitelout in the Riders of Berk series.

Spitelout has appeared in episode 12-"Thawfest" in the DreamWorks Dragons: Riders of Berk TV series. It was revealed that Spitelout is Snotlout's father. Spitelout displays a highly conditional and narcissistic form of parental love towards Snotlout, taking great pride in his son's accomplishments, but turning on him in a very fearsome and unforgiving way when confronted with the possibility of him failing, as well as a general lack of empathy towards his son's emotional state in times of stress. This attitude goes a long way in explaining Snotlout's own lack of empathy, as well as his posturing, vainglorious bragging, and persistent denial of his flaws. It is possible that Spitelout had the same upbringing as he gives Snotlout. Given that possibility it is likely that Spitelout does in fact care about Snotlout, but is not sure how to show it.

Spitelout is seen putting a lot of pressure on his son, making Snotlout absolutely terrified of losing the Thawfest games and face his father. Spitelout is also revealed to be in the Jorgenson clan, (this means that if he is Stoick's brother, he is likely his half brother) and he says that his family had never lost a Thawfest game before, suggesting that maybe he used to win every year in the Thawfest games when he was young.

He makes a brief appearance among the gathered adults in "We Are Family Part I", when Stoick entrusted Hiccup with the Book of Dragons.

Riders of Berk comic

Spitelout was also part of the raiding party sent by Stoick to assist Hiccup's dragon riders in rescuing Stormfly from Northlander trader Arngrim Dammen's camp in the near Balder Bay and the Ice Needles.[1]

Defenders of Berk

Spitelout then appeared briefly in "Tunnel Vision", when he and the other villagers were forming a defensive line in the village against the invading Whispering Deaths. Later, Spitelout was cornered by a Whispering Death, but Gobber managed to come to his aid impeccably.

His latest appearance is in "Race to Fireworm Island", where he callously suggests Snotlout get a new dragon to replace the ailing Hookfang. His motto is also said to be "Rest is for the weak." However, later in the episode Snotlout acknowledges that despite his respect for his father, the man knows nothing about dragons and Snotlout will just ignore any dragon-related advice from him in the future.

Race to the Edge

It was revealed in "Imperfect Harmony" that Spitelout was also a member of Berk's Council and was against allowing Hiccup and the riders to explore beyond the archipelago boundaries.

He is set to return in Snotlout Gets the Axe.

Spitelout in HTTYD 2

Spitelout is seen during the dragon race, wearing a displeased look on his face. Stoick slaps him on the back while he cheers Astrid on. He also made another appearance where comes out of his house to listen to Drago saying that Stoick is dead. 


How To Train Your Dragon

He seems to only have five lines, the first and second during the dragon raid, the third during the meeting before setting sail for their first mission, the fourth when the dragons fly out of the opening recently made by the catapults, and the fifth when Stoick tells him to lead the Vikings to the far side of the island.

  • "Get inside!"
  • "Hoist the torches!"
  • "I'm with you, Stoick."
  • "We've done it!"
  • "Right, everybody to the far side of the island."

Riders of Berk


  • "Faster, Snotlout! You have to push yourself!"
  • "Snotlout, Snotlout, OY! OY! OY!"
  • "What are we!?" (Snotlout: "Killers!") "What d'we do!?" (Snotlout: "We kill!") "What d'we say!?"
  • "That's my boy!"
  • "Ha ha! Why don't you just give us the medal now, Stoick? Save your boy the embarrassment!?"
  • "Snotlout! Get that dragon under control!"
  • "Did you ever hear the story of when I nearly lost the Thawfest Games?" (Snotlout: "No, I never did.") "That's right - Because it never happened! No Jorgenson has ever even come close to losing the Thawfest Games. Don't you be the first."
  • (After Snotlout 'wins') "Now that's a Jorgenson!"

Defenders of Berk

Race to Fireworm Island:

  • "Snotlout! Have you seen my spare bludgeon? I could have sworn I left it here."
  • "Yeah, I'll have to get back to the port, we're havin' a contest to see whose skull is strongest! Ha ha!"
  • "Troubles with the lizard, son?"
  • "You know what I say about rest? Rest is for the weak!"
  • (After seeing Hookfang ill) "You know, boy-o, as Viking warriors - If our swords are not cutting properly... We sharpen them. But, if our sword cannot be sharpened any longer... (He breaks the sword in half) ...We get a new sword... Thanks for the bludgeon!"

Race to the Edge

Imperfect Harmony:

  • "We've been in peace for three years, best years of Berk I can remember. I think you know as well as I do, when you go looking for trouble, you usually find it."
  • "If there is anything you and the other Riders should be doing, it is hunting down Dagur and putting him back in jail, where he belongs."
  • "Stoick, anytime you like to chime in, we can put this thing to rest."


  • David Tennant, who provided Spitelout's voice, had previously narrated a series of Hiccup's adventures on audio book.
  • Unlike most of the male adult Vikings, Spitelout lacks a beard and instead sports stubble. He has a full, yet short beard in Race to the Edge and How to Train Your Dragon 2.
  • Spitelout takes the place of Baggybum the Beerbelly from the books as Snotlout's father.
  • In the series, Spitelout has a scar under his right eye but in the second film it is absent, either through it being faded or through a production goof.
