"The Whispering Death knows only one thing; killing!"
Bork the Bold, How to Train Your Dragon exclusive short, from the Book of Dragons.
Whispering Death is a dragon that appears in the film continuity and exclusive short, the Book of Dragons . This dragon is seen when Hiccup reads Dragon Manual , and they are classified in Boulder class.

Dragon Appearance

Whispering Death is similar to a Deadly Nadder , but with bulging eyes, face and spirals of barbed teeth that line the entirety of his inner mouth. It has a snake body and neck, similar Zippleback'S , but Whispering Deaths have no legs, only the lower peaks (which can be used to bypass through their tunnels).

Many consider them extremely vicious and often have nightmares after confronting these horrors. Their gaping mouths are full of deadly rotating teeth. These wings can also be rotated, presumably to aid in the drilling process. They look very similar to the Gulper Eel.

It is 25 meters (82 feet) in length.

Whispering Death's are extremely deadly, like most other dragons, and are able to chew their victims after their ingestion, using their multiple rows of rotating teeth. They usually live in underground tunnels, they burrow themselves, grinding attack oncoming enemy / prey.

Dragon Guide once said that they were extremely dangerous and must be killed on the spot. Nevertheless, despite their fearsome reputation, they wanted to brush their teeth. In the 14th episode of Dragons: Riders BerkWhat Flies Beneath , Fishlegs noticed that a Whispering Death's eyes were against direct sunlight, which is why it spends most of its time underground. Astrid says it weighs about 2,500 pounds.

When Whispering Deaths find intruders in their tunnels, they will forcibly eject them from the nearest pit. This was done in the bucket , but later, when he did the same to Hiccup, he also tried to kill him, pursuing him even above the ground; this may be because, at that time it was just a bucket that fell, Hiccup was caught running along its tunnel system. Perhaps the dragon believed he was deeply invading his "territory."

Whispering Deaths are quite known to be more dangerous in their infant stages, in contrast to their teenage or adult forms. They say that they have less control over their rotating teeth and spines, and are described to be "out of control drilling." Young Whispering Deaths are known to be extremely territorial of their homeland, "claiming it as their own."


Whispering Death has the ability to use your jaw to travel quickly on the solid rock, giving it, argubly, the greatest jaw strength in the dragon world. In addition, Whispering Death can breathe powerful ring of fire. It is incredibly strong and is also able to shoot their spines as a Deadly Nadder, which grow on the head and the length of his body. With his long, thin body, the tail often makes whipcrack noise as it clicks on it.

Six inner rings of teeth are rotated in opposite directions from each other. When these teeth move, they make a terrible noise that sounds like a lot of people whisper. Hearing "whispers", together with the ground rumbling, often only two warning signs that Whispering Death is coming from underground tunnels if it is not near the surface, throwing earth and rock. When dragons are on the ground, they seem more sensitive to these symptoms than people becoming agitated before people can even hear. Toothless could detect the presence of one of Hiccup room 's, which is on the second floor, even if it was not that next.

Apparently, immunity to the effects of conventional dragon nip . When Hiccup tried to use the dragon to stop attacking tame Whispering Death, sniffing it just made ​​the dragon sneezes. Furthermore, it was shown that is not affected on the acoustic roar of the Thunderdrum , but can be pushed by them.


Whispers of Death hates sunlight so they spend their time underground. Although his teeth can break rock, he can not break through the steel. Among other weaknes is that he can not stand eel.


How to Train Your Dragon (film)

Whispering Death mentioned when Hiccup reads through Dragon Manual for information about Night Furies . Apparently, this dragon is one of the most feared dragons, as Hiccup says it's name with great fear.

This dragon had a grudge with Toothless  because of some past confrontation that led to the Night Fury leaving a characteristic scar on the skin of it. Although Toothless tried to fight him on his own, his inability to fly to put him at a disadvantage. When Whispering death almost killed Toothless, knocking him out in the canyon. it was only after Toothless accepted Hiccups help that the Whispering Death is defeated. Once it escaped, The hole that it caused is locked with boulders.

In Episode 20 - We Are Family Part II , Whispering Death makes another appearance (it is not confirmed whether this is the same dragon that appeared in episode 14). Dragon was seen in the cell Outcast island throughout the series. Alvin tried to get Hiccups train it along with two other dragons, but Hiccup ran on Deadly Nadder leaving Alvin disappointment. At the end of the episode, Alvin finally learns to train a dragon, he saw tuition Whispering Death. Thus, Alvin reached his goal. this Whi

Later the Whispering Deaths are shown gathering as the Screaming Death scream, and at the end carrying the injured Screaming Death, nursing it back to health.

In Cast Out Part II, One appear when Mildew is feeding it fish. It also tried to steal his staff. After that, the mother of all Young Whispering Deaths (including Screaming Death) we've seen in Defenders of Berk, as said by Mildew, is also shown, sleeping above her nest. As part of the plan to rescue Stoick, Hiccup, and Toothless from Dagur, Alvin and Mildew released the dragons. They start kidnapping , attacking, and possibly killing few Beserkers and traitors of the Outcast tribe, not to mention destroying the Outcast killing arena. After Fishlegs brought the Screaming Death to Outcast Island, it finally noticed it's mother (the one it was looking for in the first place, and the cause it goes beserk), yet Dagur did a very deranged antic by capturing the mother, making the giant dragon go mad once again. But thanks to Snotlout and Hookfang's acts, the mother is freed, and the Screaming Death reunites with it's family, not forgetting to thanks Hiccup and Toothless by roaring at him.
