Stoick the Vast


Spitelout has shown that he does care for his dragon and they appear to work very well together despite having only known each other for a short time. According to Rise of Berk Kingstail shoots first and asks questions later, just like Spitelout. Spitelout also apologized for hurting Kingstails feelings when he referred to another dragon as a "sparky lizard" but quickly added "no offense to you of course." Overall it seems that Spitelout and Kingstail are close and make a great team.

Snotlout Jorgenson

He loves his son very much but is often overly tough on him though this is only because he wants to make the best out of him. When it comes to competitive games like those of the Thawfest he is very eager to make sure his son does not loose any games and when he sees his son losing he becomes very angry and forces his son to try harder, he even made his son very upset by telling him that he wouldn't be a Jorgenson if he lost the game. However, after he won the game in the race he was very proud of his son.

Spitelout does indeed care about his son. But he can be harsh on Snotlout. When Spitlout built a storehouse (Not Lout), the whole town was happy. Afterward, Snotlout went to his father and and was happy. Snotlout said something along the lines of,"we are the best!" Spitelout then told Snotlout, that he had done nothing and it was all him. Snotlout was hurt, but he still listens to his father, and thinks he is always right.


Spitelout shows to be tough on Snotlout's dragon as he wanted his son dragon to make sure to win the games and he was pretty harsh when his dragon he was very close to death as he can easily be replace like sword. Soon few years later they seemed to be better relationship as Hookfang was able to make Spitelout ride on him for battles.

Abilities and Skills

Spitelout has won many Thawfest games proving to himself and others that he is one of the best Vikings.

Endurance and Stamina: Like his son, Spitelout was able to survive the lightning blast of a Skrill. However, he spoke gibberish following the Skrill's attack, just like Snotlout. As demonstrated numerous times, Spitelout has a very thick skull that can withstand bludgeons. His stamina is very high given that he was able to take out multiple dragon hunters on his own even after having been struck by lightning from a Skrill.

Dragon Training and Riding: He shown to be a capable dragon rider, albeit after a lot of practice. He rides his Deadly Nadder, Kingtail, without any issues. Before training with Astrid it was shown that he and Kingstail did not have a very good aim with Kingstails spines and fire, however, this seems to have improved greatly.

Strength and Fighting Ability: He is shown to have a high level of strength, being able to lift two wild boars, one on each of his arms without any signs of struggle. He is second in command to Stoick and he has shown to be great fighter despite his tendency to act without thinking.
