something interesting to note about toothless’s character is that he is the only dragon in the movie that looks actually dangerous. Even the monstrous nightmares look somewhat goofy, with their big eyes and underbite. You can’t take them as seriously because they look cartoon-y. And so in walks Toothless, this fearsome Night Fury, possessing all the qualities of something truly terrifying. How are you supposed to make something like that any less scary? And this is exactly the reason why Toothless is practically worshipped in the fandom. He is the only dragon we have a reason to be scared of, yet he is our favorite. In order to take the horrifying Night Fury less seriously, our dear writers had to make him…

endearing.
