Top 10 Dreamworks Dragons

If you have seen any How to Train Your Dragon movies or have seen Riders of Berk, you know about these dragons.

The Top Ten

1 The Night Fury

I am not picking The Night Fury just because of Toothless. Night Furies have so many powerful moves that it isn't just about defeating their enemies with fire power, it's using their speed, agility and fast-thinking to out-wit their opponent. Take the dive-bomb for example. This is the Night Fury's preferred choice of attacking, along with it's primary defense (Plasma Blasts - blasts of both fire and electrical current) and dive-bombing is the easiest way to take out any opponent, specifically ones twice, three or four times the Night Fury's size; as we saw with the Red Death. Also, it's split spine fins make it easier for a Night Fury to be more agile, maneuverable and steerable.

The Night Fury is the most intelligent dragon of all species known and has heightened senses such as hearing and echolocation. It's stamina, agility and stealth make it one of the best attack dragons there is. In addition to this, the Night Fury's wingspan allows it to fly faster, longer and further ...more

The Night Fury is even explained by the Book of dragons as the unholy offspring of lightning and death itself. It has near unparalleled speed and stealth with it having the hottest blast. While the dragons universe says the Nadder has the hottest fire with its magnesium blast, actual science proves that the Night Fury's Acetylene oxygen (plasma) blast is actually around 700 degrees Fahrenheit hotter. In addition, like Hiccup said in the first movie, the Night Fury "never misses." The Night Fury is also defined by its intelligence with it being extremely smart for a dragon. It's smart, fast, strong, precise, accurate, and has a very strong blast; It is the strongest dragon no question. Even as of the end of the second movie, Toothless is the dragon that beat the Bewilderbeast that Drago was controlling.

I guess he's kinda cute, but, really he a tad overrated. Still like him though. - ThunderdrumsRule

It is to powerful to be any lower on this list of course it is

2 The Skrill

The Skrill is by far the best dragon. It looks better than the night fury, because what kind of death-related dragon is cute? , and is nearly, if not, as good. It is fast, intelligent, by dragon standards, and powerful. It can emit lightning from its mouth, which is a classic but cool fire type.

The Skrill can even store up lightning and use it later also with its lightning it has stored up it can hit several opponents at once with lethal bolts of electricity

I love the skill, it is the best dragon in the world because it can channel lightning and shoots white fire combined with lightning which equals the power of a Night Fury

It is epic

3 The Thunder Drum

This is a loving Dragon and it is very loyal. It is always by your side, ready to fight whatever stands in your way. It can be found in the sea or ocean and to gain its trust, you have to defeat its enemies. Please do vote for this lovable Dragon. - ThunderdrumsRule

Who doesn't love a dragon that has a sonic blast instead of fire. This dragon should be number one! - rika345

They say the thunder drum got its power from Thor himself!

4 Flightmare

Flight mare is cool and unique, I think it should be in a movie. It might not be the best, but it is super cool when you compare it to the other dragons.

Nice pun made by the director. Very cool, mysterious dragon.

I love these dragons they paralyze you with fear.

Should be third

5 The Scauldron

This dragon is fat because it takes water into its stomach and heats it up. After a while, it shoots the water out. One blast, and you're finished

It is my favorite because it has six rows of teeth

The boiling water of the scauldron can burn the scales of the screaming death and one blast of it and your'e finished.

It shoots boiling water, what’s not to like

6 The Changewing

This dragon can blend in with any enviroment. It loves to mimic. It also has acid breath and the ability to hypnotize.

Amazing dragon! If they exist I would have it as my dragon!

Nobody can destroy a dragon who is invisible. can anyone

It can change color! Impressive! Oh and by the way, a Titanwing Bewilderbeast, Screaming Death, or Red Death would be very scary (This comment is ridiculously obvious).

7 The Timberjack

This beauty has razor sharp wings that can cut down a forest of trees. Those enormus wings make (A) a great saw, (B) a very effective tent, and (C) impossible to scratch its own back.

Process to the max

I love timberjacks because there big and a huge flying tent and I think there cute

8 Screaming Death

Unlike the Red Death that toothless and Hiccup defeated alone in the first movie, the screaming Death was never defeated by Hiccup alone or the other dragon riders put together. It took an entire island of dragons to scare it off and is able to destroy islands by itself. What more do I need to say?

Just look at it, it is obviously superior to any other dragons. Plus it took down all the dragon riders when it wasn't even full grown, the only reason they beat him (finally) is because they have hiccup, and all the other dragon riders, but the screaming death is just alone, only him.

I don't know what you are talking about the night fury would beat the screaming death like on one of dream works he beat the screaming death

This Dragon is so amazing. The screaming death is so cool and deadly. Boulder class and really tough scales that can serve as armor

9 Speed Stinger

Can kill a night fury like its nothing. Its faster. Its smarter. (Think logical it has to be able to process things quickly to avoid crashing) They work better together, and how in the name of thor is the night fury strong if there is only ONE. That means it has to be pretty defenseless. Speed stingers are better by far.

Probably the fastest dragon out there. They hunt in packs and are highly coordinated predators. The venom from their stinger can paralyze their victims for several hours. And most of all, they pretty much took over Berk over night.

They look like the velociraptor, my favorite dino. I love them!

Speed stingers are my favorite!

10 Monstrous Nightmare

These dragons are so cool because they can set themselves on fire and they have quit a lot of personality.

He's is the most meanest and baddest dragon their is and one of the strongest dragons

These dragons should at least be in the top 10

Great with sharp turns, awesome model, great friends.

The Contenders

11 The Whispering Death

This dragon burrows through the ground, has 6 rows of insane, rotating teeth, and breathes rings of fire. It is immune to the effects of dragon nip and the roars of the thunder drum. To tame a whispering death, brush its teeth.

I think that the whispering DEath should be the best of all because not only he has a mouth with 6 row he as deadly spike filed with venom and its would really suck if someone runned into one because there's no possible escape

The whispering death should be 4or5


V 2 Comments
12 The Boneknapper

This dragon collects the bones of dead dragons to make an unusual coat of armor. It needs every piece to do certain abilities, like roaring.

It is the best thing. If only they were in packs.

Fire shooting legend

Even though it uses dead dragon bones for armor this dragon should be shown some respect. If it didn’t have armor, it would probably die because of it’s fragile skin. I love this dragon because this bad-ass will do ANYTHING to protect itself.

13 Triple Stryke

Extremely difficult to fight and is super intelligent and who doesn't want to have three tails that are poisonous

This is great and shots three stings quite a competition even for toothless

How is Shrek about the amazing Triple Stryke! I love Triple Stryke's tail and his color scheme.

While triple stryke has been trained by Astrid he really became to be a friendly dragon

14 Woolly Howl

The woolly howl, my favorite dragon, is a very rare dragon only found in icy regions. This powerful beast can shoot hurricanes and rings of ice, can withstand blizzards, and it's belly can blend in with the clouds. This beast is in strike class, meaning it is very powerful, agile, and one of the most powerful dragons. This should be much higher on the list.

The fine dark scales on the back of this blizzard-loving Strike Class dragon are often mistaken for fur at a distance, but this dragon is far from cuddly.

The Woolly Howl's pale belly lets it blend in with th

The Woolly Howl is hands down my favourite of them all! They're a Strike Class dragon that is very loyal, almost like a dog in my eyes. They're very agile, stealthy and rather dangerous. I honestly wouldn't mind having this dragon as my own, even if there were any other new species. The Woolly Howl can shoot hurricanes as well as rings of ice. No only can it withstand blizzards but its stomach can blend in with the clouds above. Isn't that just AWESOME?! Honestly... the Woolly Howl SHOULD be higher up on the list.

I love the Woolly Howl for it's speed and agility.

15 Bewilderbeast

Supposedly the most powerful dragon, it can force other dragons to submit. Amazing in size, even exceeding that of the Red Death.

"but this is the king of all dragons" so obviously, this is the most powerful

Bewilder beast would beat every one hands down.

What is its name the king of dragons

16 Grapple Grounder

My favorite dragon in HTTYD. It's very interesting and looks beautiful.

So cool

One of the fastest dragon, has more stamina and stealth than night fury but less speed, power and firepower it has the strongest jaws stronger than grockle, is very dangerous and is flexible because of his snake body. this dragon should be nmber 2 on th list after night fury.

17 The Snaptrapper

This dragon has 4 heads, each with 3 jaws, lures many victims to their doom by their sweet smell of chocolate. They also love rain and can't wait to play in the mud.

18 The Fireworm

You know since the skin is hotter than the sun it can burn up the atmosphere so technically it can destroy worlds so umm why is this dragon not number 1 doesn't make much sense

Nothing much, except that their skin burns hotter than the sun.

19 Stormcutter

The stormcutter has four wings and is awesome. It also has the fastest dive of any dragon next to the night fury and is one of the fastest

This dragon Is far larger than a nigh fury. It has two pair of wings so it can make extremely tight turns. It is also one of the fastest dragons. It's fire is a tornado of fire and has pressure. It can destroy almost anything.

I think this dragon should be somewhat popular, but not as god damn overrated as the night fury. Come on! The storm cutter is majestic and huge and powerful But also has a soft side for those in need...

This dragon should be 2nd

20 Dragon (Shrek)

Why is the hell is this evening here?!

Why people even put it here? If you want me to get rid of it, then challenge accepted.

The list is dreamworlds dragons and it featured in the rise of Berk game

Oh course it's a dragon :/

21 Death Song

I love all dragons, and I have my own top ten dragons, but it took me a while to decide which dragon would be MY dragon, and I saw the Death Song and I knew it. His beauty and bravery (Living on the Edge) and their few numbers make them dragons to be treasured and cherished. The loyalty that Garffljorg displays makes you realize that they will be your friend for life.

Great but its death song doesn't attract all dragons which is a bit of a disappointment

He is so cool the way he attracts dragons with his DEATH SONG

The Death Song is amazing. It's wings look like a butterfly's, making it look gorgeous not to mention its deadliness. I think Night Furies are sooo overrated and very over-powered.

22 Snow Wraith

The Snow Wraith is a Strike Class dragon that appears in DreamWorks Dragons: Race to the Edge. It appears in the episode Dragon Eye of the Beholder Part II.The Snow Wraith has a snowy white body. It possess two legs and a broad wings. The Snow Wraith has two prominent canines protruding from its lower jaw. Also, this dragon has a long ledge under its chin and what seems to be thick eyebrows. The Snow Wraith has a long tail covered with spikes and a thick, fleshy tongue with black bumps on it. It has only two claws and toes on its feet. The Snow Wraith has thermal vision that allows it to track prey even during the blustery blizzard. However, if its prey has the same temperature as its surroundings, it's hard to locate it.

The Snow Wraith has hooks on its wings and a tail full of spikes that allow it to cling onto ice without falling or slipping. Its snowy white scales allow it to blend in well with its surroundings.

This dragon's teeth are the only tool that can unlock ...more - NightFurysRule

Sorry the names Snow Wraith and is set to appear in dragons Race to the Edge. - NightFurysRule

It can inly look the heat vision

Nice one of all dragon it seems it should be a number 5 dragon

All it's Dragonpedia stats are better than that of a Night Fury and Skrill. It has awesome ice breath instead of firepower and could singlehandedly face all five of Berk's Dragons. Just powerful.

23 Snoggletog Wraith

Just because it looks harmless, don't think its not super powerful. It is like the Christmas version of toothless but shoots balls of ice. This a very strong dragon, almost as strong as the night fury. So is the woolly howl.

I wish I could carry it around with me. It looks so cute! Plus, who doesn't like Christmas?

This dragon is not like Toothless! It is a Sand Wraith that is white - EAR2121

It is also powerful. My best battle dragon in Dreamworks Dragons: Rise of Berk

24 Razorwhip

Razorwhip has way more abilities than every other dragon. Most people think that Toothless is the coolest dragon of all time, and granted he is one of the best ones. However, he can only shoot plasma out of his mouth and fly at high speeds, which is very helpful when it comes to fights and racing. But, the Razorwhip has so many more equally awesome powers. I'm not trying to put down night furys, but am saying that there are other dragons that people should look into.

I absolutely LOVE this dragon. It is just such a cool dragon! I love how the Razorwhip's fire is so hot, that it is light blue. And how it's tail is so sharp it can cut through anything! And let's not forget how it can shoot spikes off its tail! If I was a dragon rider, my dragon would definitely be this one!

It's fast, it's sharp, it's smart, it's loyal, it has every trait you would want. It's breath is hot enough to melt almost anything, and it is an amazing dragon all round.

It can keep up with toothless!

25 Red Death

The red death is the queen of all dragons its like below the bewilder beast

It's the queen of dragons

Red death boss

It so stupid

26 Sand Wraith

A Tidal Class expert in camouflage that buries itself in the sand. It's a good way to surprise their prey... And avoid sunburn! Some of these dragons migrated to the desert centuries ago likely looking for food and courtship. These are called Desert Wraiths. If you don't know it go to how to train your dragon wiki. They also bear a strong resemblance to a Night Fury.

They are so lovely

They are epic

They look like nightfuries, and if you color them mostly black with white spots they look like the night sky. What's not to love? I have one on School of Dragons!

27 The Typhoomerang

Discovered in riders of berk, this dragon makes a blazing flight pattern and is the 3rd fastest dragon

A huge fast dragon with amazing firepower. What more could you want.

This dragon is the dragon of the week!

28 Singatail

Singe away baby! From tail, under and mouth

29 The Hideous Zippleback

One head blows gas while the other ignites. This causes an explosion so powerful it more powerful than most dragons. They are very agile and are in the mystery class of dragons meaning they are very stealthy

You ever think they burp out fart, because fart is made out of methane, which is very explosive if there is a fire. Lesson, do not put fire on your butt.

2 Heads Twice The Status

These dragons are super amazing and you can give them names like zip and zap or scratch and claw or also moon and sun

30 Seashocker

This dragons has two heads and can glow under water. This dragon should be in the top 15

So far one of the only dragons that I think have a quality design out of them all.

It a sword fish of some think else? It not a dragon


It looks like a mantaray ( or whatever it's called but the creature is very cool! ) it can do glorious dolphin jumps! Has lighting as it's breath. ( well technically not breath but I don't know how to put it ) has TWO HEADS! Which means double names!
There are so many things I want to say about the dragon, but I don't know what.

31 Gronckle

People give the nightfury too much credit. What happens if a day comes where you need a friend after some guys just put you down? One nightfury left? It belongs to Hiccup? The Gronckle's loyalty is way up there. You a blacksmith and want to sell a light and strong metal? Two words. Gronckle iron Got a catapult shot flying at you? A gronckle will take that and throw that hot potato back. Two ally dragons fighting because they got a whiff of dragon root? Only the Gronckle can send that troublemaker away. The Nightfury is nice and all, but for a friend who will be there for you no matter what, tough armor, will never betray you, can make the best metal, how could you not love a gronckle?

Gronckle is my favourite dragon. It is slow but it is stronger than a nadder it should be in top ten

It is Very cool

This dragon is the only dragon that should be on the list because it is soø cool

V 4 Comments
32 Deadly Nadder

This dragon is one of the fastest and can shoot spines from its tail with deadly accuracy and is 2nd most venomous dragon.

This dragon should at least be in the top 15 because hiccup even said the deadly nadder is a close match for a night fury.

One of the fastest it shoots spikes and has the hottest fire and is fast and beautiful

Best dragon EVER

V 13 Comments
33 Rumblehorn

Don't you people know it is dangerous!

It can tracker you and almost unstopperble

34 Windstriker

It looks cool

35 Thunderpede

The Thunderpede is a new Boulder class dragon from Rise of Berk. This dragon is so awesome it has 6 legs and two front arms that are huge with razor sharp claws. They kind of look like centipedes in dragon form. The jackhammer-like forelegs of this ruthless Boulder Class bruiser can pulverize a massive boulder in seconds, and a viking even faster! Just like the legs, the wings of this dragon are small for its size but can flap in a great speed.

36 Shockjaw

I like the fact they can shoot lightning!

Strongest dragon

It's like an awesomer version of the Hackatoo. The Shockjaw can shoot lightning bolts and can fly very quickly. They are very loyal. They are also adaptable on land or in the water, making them my personal favorite. These guys should be in the top!

37 Catastrophic Quaken

This boulder class dragon appears in dragons race to the edge. It is basically like a bigger version of the gronckle and it has this ability to roll up into a boulder to crush everything in its path making it virtually indestructible

Hotburple is bigger version of gronkle you idiot. It like a giant amadillo

38 Lycanwing

These are cool if they were real not saying they are but there is no proof of them being real

39 Hotburple

They are the cutest thing ever

It lazy and stupid

40 The Alpha

Laugh out loud. It took all the dragons who ever existed to beat him.

It does not take all of the dragons to beat it

There so many alpha, which do this tall about?

It's the evil bewilderbeast

V 4 Comments
41 Thunderclaw

Aww so cute

42 Sword Stealer

This dragon was first shown in rise of berk. The sword stealers skin is magnetic meaning its skin is covered in armor. It kind of is like the boneknappers armer except it is metal meaning it is stronger and more powerful and impenatrable. Anyone who has metal and gets too close has it ripped from them.

43 Forever Wing

It a alpha class dragon and it sleep all the time to hide something. It use a island like it shell

This is An Alpha class dragon. It is the 3d biggest dragon ever after the the red death. All Alphas must be in the top 10. vote this awesome is link to see this awesome dragon - NightFurysRule

44 Moldruffle

It's stupid

The only reason I voted was to write how stupid it is if you had no cloths on and god hit by it’s fire you would be find it also has a weak bite,soft skin and can be noticed by a blind man.

45 Devilish Dervish

Voting for this one because I recognize it from the books, which I love.

46 Snifflehunch
47 Scuttleclaw
48 Cavern Crasher

It can slide through rocks!


49 Dragos Bewilderbeast

These both dragons are first in position in attacking power

50 Night Terror

Too cute I'm sorry top ten needed for smidbarg

The night terror îs powerful because it Hunter in packs I think smidvarg is toothless offspring beacause They are Both night dragons and alphas
