Top Ten Reasons to Hate How to Train Your Dragon

I hate This Movie So Much! It's so cliche and sucks on my opinion

The Top Ten

1 The characters are unoriginal

The characters are based on the book series. Of course, they would have the same name and personality and such - ReinaDAmore

This is so true! I can tell that the characters were not as well taught out as some other animated series.

Just why! Why these characters?

Well I think this movie is better than My Little Pony. I hate My Little Pony. - cosmo

2 Toothless is too overrated

Don't get me wrong. I love the movies and stuff, especially the game School of Dragons. However, I have to agree on this. Before you say that he's "sO cUtE aNd YoU sHoULd StOp HaTiNg oN hIm", let me just say that I am not hating on him. I like Toothless just fine, but, when you think about it, he as well as Hiccup are both overrated and actually fall into the category of a Gary-Stu. Here's why:

1. Toothless has one flaw...and this flaw makes him cute rather than hinder him. Also, this is not a character flaw, it's a physical flaw so his personality still counts as "perfect".

2. He's smart, cute, bad***, talented, lovable, and loyal to Hiccup.

3. Everything centers around him somehow, especially some of the subplots.

4. He gets practically everything: An awesome owner who is also the chief of Berk, being the Alpha dragon, being the rarest and most dangerous dragon ever, a girlfriend, and getting some pretty awesome perks with becoming Alpha dragon (as listed ...more - RedTheGremlin

He is the most loyal dragon ever and would do anything for Hiccup. Without Toothless, they wouldn't be fighting for the dragons. And, of course he has the most screen time after Hiccup, he is the one of the main characters after all. - ReinaDAmore

At first, I loved Toothless, but now, I realized how overrated and cliche he is. He has a flaw that makes him seem more like able. He is probably the rarest and most powerful dragon in the entire HTTYD world, all common protagonist traits. He is cool, badass, smart, vigilant, and protective, all while being adorable. *cough cough* A way to make him more like able.

Toothless is different from the rest of the Dragons by having those “intelligent big eyes” instead of the usual dumb-looking round eyes. Most characters have an embarrassing moment that makes people laugh, but when Toothless has one of those embarrassing moments, he is the center of attention by appearing cute while doing it.

I am sorry, but I do not enjoy these overrated things at all. The movie is amazing, but it has to have some flaws.

3 The plot is just lame

This is retarded

Can' disagree more - ReinaDAmore

Well in the 1st movie I watched, the plot was ok, but in the 2nd movie the plot is better than the 1st movie plot. And in the 3rd movie the plot was still ok, but DreamWorks should have make a better plot like the 2nd movie did.

(Sigh) yes, revolutionary discoveries that are originally shunned and outcasted are lame.

4 It's the most overrated Dreamworks movie

Why the hell is this more popular than shrek

i vote yes

After Shrek... Yeah. I didn't get the hype, it was decent.

Yeah but httyd is the best dreamwork movie,you see httyd's name backwardz is nogard ruoy niart ot woh which makes no sence just like your opinoin. Its legit the greatest dreamworks movie

5 It's not funny at all!

Personal opinion, I can't disagree with you here, But I enjoyed it, so stop presenting it as fact, please.

None of their stupid jokes were funny. They just look idiotic with those jokes - MLPFan

Its perfect funny movie

Dreamworks in general have stupid humor.

6 'Our Dragons' at the ending

I don't mind this part. - RedTheGremlin


Dragons cannot be owned.

Like anyone would want a freaky dragon as a pet - MLPFan

7 Hiccup is too much of a Mr. Smarty-Pants

He is smart and and does what's best for everyone. Does he brag about it? No, unlike Snotlout. It's how he is, not like some macho viking - ReinaDAmore


I want him dead

8 They don't follow the books' amazing plot and story

It's based on it, it doesn't have to be the same. As long as Cressida Cowell agrees, it's fine - ReinaDAmore

*anything related to those awful movies*

After reading all 12 of the books, I can assure you the movies are the worst thing to ever be created by DreamWorks. I could list everything wrong with the movies, but that would take way too long.

I'll just state the basics:

Toothless is supposed to be a small, brown dragon. He is not a large black riding dragon.

There is no such thing as a "Night Fury."

Hiccup is supposed to have a riding dragon that is NOT Toothless, Windwalker.

Alvin The Treacherous is a way better character in the books. I loved hating him.

And that's just scratching the surface. The books have awesome characters and plotlines, actually good humor, emotion and meaningfulness (especially book 8 and up), and much more to offer than the movies. The death of Furious the Seadragonus Giganticus Maximus at the end of book 12 was so powerfully emotional it moved me to tears, something the movies could never do.

I utterly loathe whoever at Dreamworks came up with ...more - Naphtali

I mean, if they change it so much, why don't they rename the whole thing because they are literally saying that the movie is the book's story which is so not true because the books are AMAZING and no way can the movie compare to them.

9 They get a crossover with Frozen and Big Hero 6

You can make a crossover with any movie franchise, that's the one of the points of fan fictions. - ReinaDAmore

Uuuhhbb how can how to train your dragon be a crossover of frozen and big hero6 when httyd came in 2010, frozen came in 2013 and big hero 6 came in 2014?

I seriously doubt it- Big Hero 6 and Frozen are Disney movies and Dragons is Dreamworks, who are competitors. If your talking about the fandom than yeah, but I seriously doubt the two companies will ever come together. - AnnaOfArendelle332

This is the fandom, not the movie, get a better argument.

10 They always say 'This Is Berk' at the beginning

This shouldn't be a reason to dislike the movies - RedTheGremlin

It's a typical thing and it's not bad. Plus, the description changes every time and it shows a contrast between the Berks in every movie - ReinaDAmore

Whoa, it tells you the location in the beginning! This is the worst movie ever, hurrr! - Emberflight_of_StormClan

O...kay, this is a reason... To hate httyd, by a dialogue line. That's an interesting way to give exposition, Like, the intro, You are giving it flak for telling you the name of the location.

The Contenders

11 They mixed Netherlands with Scandinavia

Berk is Netherland and Vikings are Skandinavia. The mix doesn't sound like a great combo. Disney's idea of San Fransokyo (From Big Hero 6) Is so much better! - MLPFan

LOL I live in the Netherlands and this isn't right

Big hero 6 was better but this was also a great movie

No they mixed Iceland with Scotland get it right.

12 They kill the dad

It was sad but with love, comes loss, that's what Stoick said. It was originally supposed to be Gobber but still - ReinaDAmore


Sorrowful, but don't they do that in a lot of Disney movies? I know it's uncommon for Dreamworks to kill the father, but the mother was thought to be dead in the first one. - Emberflight_of_StormClan

That's why I hate the sequel

13 All people see is HiccStrid

Shippings suck. I hate it when a huge clan of fans gather around only to see their damn shipping, which is Hiccstrid here. Other characters don't get attention at all.

I hate ships but they don't ruin the movie for me. - RedTheGremlin

Well, in the 3rd movie it is canon - Discord1

Yes, what happened to camicazi? I hate how there has to be ROMANCE in the movie with a pretty girl who can literally not be better than hiccup. camicazi is a great character. why did dreamworks exclude camicazi and her wild, cocky ish sassy personality?

14 The dragons leave at the end

I hated that the dragons left, but think about's the ultimate conclusion. That's why they left; it wouldn't make sense to have them here when the Berkians are trying to explain what happened to the dragons and why nobody sees them anymore. It's supposed to tie in with real-life legends, which is a beautiful thing. - RedTheGremlin

It explains why we can't see dragons now and it's reality. It's bittersweet but life is like that and it makes the movie more sad but memorable - ReinaDAmore


I love this movie so much and I think toothless is cute so I don't know why you guys don't like it but this is the sad part but I mean guys it’s funny remember rough nut also toothless funny dance has so much action and does a great job with the sad parts so I do not know why you guys don't like this movie because in my opinion it’s so cool with the idea of having dragons and people ride them so when you think about it they’re also teaching you how mean we are to animals.the twist is always good but I do amid it that I don't really like rise of Burk. Lastly you don't need to make a whole post on why you hate this it’s rude and waste your time and for people that like this movie and worked really hard on it may be upsetting I mean they delete it two years in a week that must hurt 😢🍿 also they’ve gotten tons of awards 🏆 so just stop 🐅 please!

15 They made Shark Tale look good

Shark tale was good :3

16 The voice actors are celebrities

All voice actors are celebs. - ReinaDAmore

Is this even a valid point, are there voice actors who aren't celebrities?

I think, its not problem cause many film which the voice actors are celebrities.. - Milohamada

There is only one song where they sing! Really? - MLPFan

17 They say it's more fun than Frozen

It is - RedTheGremlin

Just because it's not Disney doesn't mean it can't compare.

Neither movies are fun. - FrozenisOverrated

18 The books were so different

The biggest difference is that the books were good. The Films are not. At all.

İn The book Toothless is very small but in The Movie Toothless is big


19 It's boring

Doubt it - ReinaDAmore

20 It overshadows Shrek

It sucks

21 It's not educational

They teach you life lessons, such as self-acceptance, being yourself and what real friendship is like. Plus, not every movie has to have a moral - ReinaDAmore

Yes I like things that teach you stuff but how to train your dragon no not at all

It's so true they didin't put any education too it - MLPFan

22 Astrid is hot

I don't like her much, but she's not terrible - RedTheGremlin

I want to know why this is on a list for reasons to DISLIKE the movie.

I believe astrid is hot on how to train your dragon and I want her

23 Toothless is great but the other characters aren't

Untrue - RedTheGremlin

24 It has too many spinoffs
25 Stoick is abusive

He changed afterwards and he became supportive of Hiccup. Not everyone is perfect - ReinaDAmore

That's just the tip of the iceberg.
Stoick is so unlikable because he treats his son like crap.
And that's saying nothing of the villagers who bully Hiccup...
