Tuffnut Junior, Junior Tuffnut and Junior Tuffnut Junior are three Gronckles that originated from Dark Deep, and they were all named by Tuffnut.


Junior Tuffnut Junior

Tuffnut really has a knack for naming dragons! He had to wrangle this wild Gronckle when its home was taken over by the Catastrophic Quaken.

Dragons: Race to the Edge

Quake, Rattle and Roll

They first encountered Fishlegs, Meatlug, Hiccup and Toothless shortly before they were ambushed and chased away by the Catastrophic Quaken. The three Gronckles were temporarily relocated at Dragon's Edge with all the other Gronckles from Dark Deep, much to the annoyance of the other Dragon Riders. Later, they returned to Dark Deep and befriended the Quaken, who had become more welcoming thanks to Fishlegs and Meatlug.


  • Tuffnut Junior and Junior Tuffnut have the same coloring as Gothi's Gronckle and Book Wyrm.
  • Junior Tuffnut Jr. appears in Rise of Berk, though his color scheme is wrong. He has Tuffnut Junior's coloring instead of being blue.
  • It is possible that their names were inspired by Tuffnut's original name from the books, Tuffnut Junior.
