    I know I’m majorly late, but the directors of the movie stated that the dragons show traits of cats, dogs and reptiles, and some horse noises too

            WHAT IF THE DRAGONS...ARE POKEMON?? pokemon require "training" to build trust and cooperation. But "reptile like" pokemon can also build these things! Childhood saved

              I'm just gonna assume this is some form of magically enhanced/highly evolved form of dragons in order to deny this theory...Yeah, that works!

                  MatPat, I love your videos, but you've really ignored and essential part of the plot of the story in this theory. You've made brilliant points, however this isn't a story of abuse and slavery. Its a story of someone raised in a society where it is normal to kill these dragons, realizing his mistake and doing what he can to make it right. And the dragons in HTTYD have repeatedly been show to be very intelligent, especially for reptiles. They are shown to be very emotional and affectionate, and seem to have very mammalian behaviours, which would indicate a large brain size. Yes Hiccup injured Toothless and yes he made Toothless dependent on him for the power of flight, but throughout the first movie, he worked at Toothless's pace, built a bond with him, respected his boundaries and gained his trust.

                      Lmao this whole theory hinges on the fact that Hiccup set out to train a dragon, which isn’t true. The other Vikings on Berk didn’t follow the same formula Hiccup did because Hiccup set out to kill a dragon. I honestly wonder if you even watched the whole film? Because Toothless also had a chance to kill Hiccup at the beginning, so if that boi can’t feel why would he spare him? Great video though, it was really interesting to learn about Lizards :)

                        Counterpoint: Hiccup had shot Toothless not with intent to train him, but intent to kill him. He then replaces Tothless's tail flap out of remorse, and since he's a Viking with only extremely primitive technology, he's unable to craft a prosthetic able to replace such a complex body part on it's own.

                              The whole point is that Hiccup figures out who dragons really are, realises his mistake and tries as hard as he can to rectify it. In the HTTYD legends mini series Hiccup makes Toothless an automatic tail, but Toothless destroys it in favour of wanting to fly with his friend.

                                              MatPat, you're dumb.
                                              Sorry for the childish comment but I need his rabid fans attention. Mat cares more for views and money than he does creating good and trustworthy theories, caring about how much money you're making isn't a bad thing but once it becomes "Money and views first, quality later." that's when you turn into a good businessman, which we all know means you're a cunt. But do I think MatPat's a cunt? I think he certainly has the potential to be a cunt, but every cunt has the potential to be a good pussy. I don't want Mat to lose subs and views to the point where he can no longer support him and his family, I just want proof that bad YouTubers can turn good.

                                              But its far too late for him now since if he did try to make good videos they would take much longer to make meaning his young fans probably won't have the patience for that and it means he'll have to make better theories. And by "better theories" I don't mean eye catching titles for his videos based on something that's popular or new. I mean theories that hit close to home, like doing a theory on something that he *actually* likes and cares about.

                                              Why the fuck did I even try with this comment, its too long so nobody will in this comment section will read it and his fans will just respond with "odIcis Ohs gi UHs ksgfgR H8tar"

                                                In the TV series hiccup makes toothless a flap that makes him fly by himself and toothless broke it

                                                  But I swear....I came back after couple of months and I'm still seeing hate comments. You must watch these things. All the things. You assuming little zuub wafiit!!(f'ing moron)

                                                    I have a pet lizard who is very close to me and acts like a big cat. She's a Bearded Dragon. Also did you not read the comments by the director that Toothless' BODY STRUCTURE AND BEHAVIOR are based on a CAT, HORSE, PUMA, and others? Their brain structure and instincts are not the same as normal Lizards. They have many different characteristics. SOME DRAGONS IN RACE TO THE EDGE EVEN HAVE FUR (the Dramillian)

                                                    • Plasma Snow 2nd account

                                                      "I've been spending all this time thinking about what I WANTED and not what YOU NEEDED."
                                                      Damn....Hiccup is seeing this for himself.

                                                      Don't get me wrong there are many things wrong with this. Like for example the fact that Hiccup trains many dragons in Riders of Berk and Race to the Edge who not only have mamilion like personalities and emotions but also grow to like him without being domesticated or chained down (or deprived of a tail fin) and they don't even try to get away from him. Perhaps this is because Hiccup smells like Toothless (kind of like how Sven the dear is so attached to Kristoff in frozen because Kristoff is literally wearing what could very possibly be Sven's mother's SKIN) but needless to say they DO TRUST him and show emotions that most lizards wouldn't show.

                                                      I do agree with the points made in the beginning of this video about animal cruelty yada yada, but Hiccup does regret his decision to shoot Toothless down, as seen in Gift of the Night Fury...

                                                      "I've been thinking about what Tuffnut said last night. Toothless can't fly on his own and that's just not fair. I've been up all night and I think I found a way to fix it."

                                                      It isn't until 5 and a half years later that Hiccup realizes his flaws and that the only true way to give his dragon freedom is to let him back into the wild, but still.

                                                      Dammit now I'm thinking about the line in the third movie. "Besides, it's only until he brings her back."
                                                      I am SO TORN right now.

None of it is cruelty or force because Toothless enjoys the symbiotic relationship between him and his handler. Also toothless hardly is your average wild animal

                                                                                      Nice! You misconstrue the message and point of the series by cherry picking specific scenes and excluding others. You completely ignore the relationship building that occurs between toothless and hiccup in the 1st movie.You also ignore the fact that the dragons are not your normal reptiles. Toothless shows higher thinking in the third movie, and you seem to ignore that. Also, they are not domesticated. You said that they are domesticated and 30 seconds later you said that domestication requires selective breeding.

                                                                                          Technically through this in the second movie toothless acually becomes DARGON KING so I’d say that all that pain toothless was through was worth it

                                                                                          • Cody _Creepypasta

                                                                                            Well, it technically could be possible. Just not like how it's done in the movie. It would be much harder to train a dragin irl, but if you tried the right techniques, methods, and go through trial and error, you could try :/
