The Spyglass is a handheld device, similar to a telescope, seen throughout the Dragons TV series.


Spyglasses are seen throughout the Franchise, including, but not limited to, the following appearances.

Dragons: Riders of Berk

A spyglass is first seen in the episode "Dragon Flower" when Hiccup offers one he made to Trader Johann in trade for a jar of squid ink. Johann refuses the trade however, reminding Hiccup that he's already traded five just like it, yet he still only has two eyes.

Dragons: Race to the Edge, Season 1

Mulch and Bucket are seen using a spyglass at the beginning of episode "Have Dragon Will Travel, Part 1". They are watching an unknown Dragon Rider on a Razorwhip attacking a ship. Later in the same episode, Hiccup uses one to spy on Heather's activities.

In "Total Nightmare", Astrid uses a spyglass to see when Hiccup and Toothless are closing so she can tell the twins to close the dome.

Dragons: Race to the Edge, Season 2

In "Team Astrid", Dagur uses a spyglass to spy on the Dragon Riders.

Dragons: Race to the Edge, Season 3

While using a spyglass in "Buffalord Soldier", Astrid spots a boat in the middle of the ocean and decides to investigate it.

Hiccup uses a spyglass on multiple occasions to scope out an island where Viggo is holding a dragon auction, in "Last Auction Heroes".

Fishlegs keeps an eye on the activities at a marble quarry, and realizes the Dragon Hunters are using Catastrophic Quakens to do the demolition work, in "Between a Rock and a Hard Place".

In "Last Auction Heroes", Hiccup found were most dragon were placed during Viggo's auction using a spyglass.

Hiccup uses a spyglass in the episode "Defenders of the Wing, Part 1", when inspecting the island called Caldera Cay. The Dragon Riders see a strange village and a large statue of a dragon species they hadn't seen before. It is later revealed to be an Eruptodon.

Dragons: Race to the Edge, Season 5

In "Snotlout's Angels", Hiccup and Fishlegs use a spyglass to find Snotlout on Wingmaiden Island.

In "Dawn of Destruction", Viggo saw through a spyglass how Fishlegs fell off his dragon and immediately reported it to Krogan.

Dragons: Race to the Edge, Season 6

In "In Plain Sight", Ruffnut spots several Dragon Flyers through a spyglass at the Northern Markets.

The Serpent's Heir

On his way to Nepenthe, Hiccup looks through a spyglass and sees the back of a Fathomfin.

Dragons: Rise of Berk

A Spyglass appears nominally in this game, during an assessment period in a 'Defend Berk' activity. The player has 30 second to scout the type and formation of ships attacking Berk before sending dragons to defeat the enemy.


Similar to the appearance of a telescope, it is probably made of animal skin, wrapped in a conical shape, with lenses on each side. It is fairly small, as it can be held in the hand with ease, and stored in a satchel easily.


Spyglasses are used to see far off things up close so they can be observed in greater detail. Tuffnut also likes to use it to see things as if they were further away. It has been used on multiple occasions by Hiccup, and other characters. It is possible that Hiccup invented the Spyglass, as he is the only one to use it whilst still living on Berk during Dragons: Riders of Berk and Dragons: Defenders of Berk.
