barf and belch

joecoolmj  asked:

Gosh I hate to ask so many questions because I don't want hog your responses but I just love them, another thing or rather dragon that I love is Barf and Belch. I feel that they have gotten the least attention and personality development even including "The Zippleback Experience" but they really do have some interesting traits! I seems to me that Barf is more of the leader of the heads while Belch seems more passive. Any thoughts on Barf and Belch? Maybe an appreciation post for them?

Oh my goodness, I like the idea of a Barf and Belch appreciation post indeed! Let’s do it!!!

1. Barf and Belch have patience like none other. They let the twins ride on their heads… and the twins aren’t always the most reserved riders. Ruffnut and Tuffnut will quarrel on the heads, or flip one head upside-down, or accidentally get the heads crossed, or try to navigate the dragon in two different directions at the same time, etc. And yet we never ever ever ever see Barf and Belch become irritated at the twins. Startled, worried, confused, yes. But Barf and Belch are patient with the twins and almost never demonstrate irritation with them.

I mean

talk about

serious patience

2. Despite the twins making a number of bizarre riding errors, Barf and Belch do not question the twins. This dragon has a sense of dedication and respect for the twins - the Hideous Zippleback will obey them even if the situation might not seem logical. That’s pretty beautiful!

3. Barf and Belch are extraordinarily protective and feel a sense of needing a debt to be repaid. In “The Zippleback Experience,” this dragon attentively protected Hiccup and repeatedly sought to save his life because of how Hiccup had saved the dragon earlier. Not to mention that Barf and Belch seem rather protective and loyal of the twins all the time, too!

4. Barf and Belch care for the twins. Whenever the twins are about to do something dangerous, you can tell the dragon is concerned. And of course there’s the adorable ending of HTTYD 2 when everyone’s dragons return. Barf and Belch happily greet Ruffnut and Tuffnut. It doesn’t even matter which head goes toward Ruffnut… the dragon just wants to express affection to the Thorstons.

5. And speaking of affection… just look at how this dragon expresses it!

Awwwwwwww! <3

6. Another great way to show affection: BRING GIFTS! Specifically… give fish. LOTS OF FISH.

You have to give the dragon credit for the amazing effort of catching and bringing so much fish, though!

7. Although Barf and Belch can be very serious around the twins - protective, loyal, obedient, caring, and the like - Barf and Belch have a serious playful side, too! This is the dragon that saw Hiccup hanging upside-down and decided the best course of action was to whack him back and forth between the two heads. Ruffnut and Tuffnut made a game called “Bat the Nut.” Because Barf and Belch want to show affection to Hiccup, they play the game with him, too!

Of course, since they’re so used to the twins… the dragon might not have realized Hiccup didn’t enjoy “Bat the Nut” himself.

8. Barf and Belch try to steal food from sleeping Tuffnut. Wonder how many meals the twins have lost from this dragon snatching snacks.

9. Have you looked at this dragon’s markings? Barf and Belch have some really cool colors and patterns! We’ve got mottled, burnt reds on top of greens. It’s really quite interesting and beautiful.

10. You can tell who’s Barf and who’s Belch based upon their teeth. Belch (left head) has longer teeth in the front and shorter teeth in the back, whereas Barf (right head) has longer teeth in the back and shorter teeth in the front.

11. Also isn’t this gas major cool?

12. They can do some SERIOUS SERIOUS damage with this gas! What makes the Hideous Zippleback so dangerous is that the dragon can fly by and cover an entire area in gas. With only one spark, the dragon can create chaos in an extremely specific are… or an extremely large area. As far as firepower goes, in fact, the Hideous Zippleback is easily the dragon on Berk that can do the most widespread damage at once.

13. And yet this poor dragon is major afraid of eels. (Hysterically dorky way to hide from an eel, though!)

14. When Ruffnut and Tuffnut are sleep-deprived, the dragon gently carries them in their mouths to dump the Thorstons in a dark room. This dragon takes very good care of both riders, be it playing with them, or keeping them safe, or even just making sure they get some proper sleep.

Conclusion? Barf and Belch is an amaaaazing dragon.

When HTTYD 3 comes out in theatres…

I will sit down in my seat with my favorite movie snacks…

And the people around me will ask before it starts…

“Why are you crying?”

And I will turn to them and say…

“Preparing for the worst”

They won’t understand…

Then it might begin…

And if the first words I hear aren’t “This is berk”…

They will be those 8 words, those 8 soul crushing, heart shattering words….

And I will know…..

I was preparing for the right thing.


This is from Dawn of the Dragon Racers and like, it’s right at the beginning of the race towards the end of the episode. 

It’s better when you see it play out because the nine of them (dragon and rider inclusive) do this amazing midair flip/turn movie (I guess it’s kinda like a U-Turn???) IN UNISON.

They’re literally in competition rn and their formation flying is on point. In RTTE S4 Mala talks about Hiccup and Toothless flying in perfect harmony (and how magical it is)… well, definitely applies to the gang (and also their dragons)

It’s gorgeous.

Some httyd headcanons...

- Hiccup sometimes wonders what he would name his daughter if he ever had one (obviously he would name a son Stoick)                                                        - Snotlout hoards the most random things (i.e a piece of metal he found on the ground, some bark that came off a tree when he and Hookfang crashed into it…)                                                                                                                       - Heather once tried to teach Astrid to cook, and it didn’t end well (yaknog 2.0?) - Tuffnut has tried several times to live off of nothing but leaves and sea water   - Astrid loves gymnastics (note the tricks she performs on Stormfly)                    - Ruffnut is actually a really good artist, when she tries                                        - Meatlug is the mum of the dragon group                                                           - Stormfly likes to shoot her spines at everyone to get their attention                   - Toothless is the friendly one of the dragon group                                               - Barf and Belch like to steal the other dragon’s things by one of the heads distracting them and the other head taking it                                                        - Hookfang sometimes flaps his wings really loudly to annoy the other dragons   - Windshear is really sassy towards the other dragons

What if dragons’ eyes did that thing like animals do where they reflect light? 

Imagine Fishlegs waking up in the middle of the night to see round yellow eyes light up with the lightning outside the window, and have to catch his breath when he realizes that it’s just Meatlug, come to comfort him during the thunderstorm.

Imagine Astrid, taking a night flight on Stormfly, seeing her dragon’s eyes flash from the braziers surrounding Berk, and feeling so grateful they were never dulled, either from an enemy’s arrow or from her own axe. 

Imagine Heather, waking up in the middle of the night, the flash of green eyes reflecting her campfire’s dying embers, calming her because it’s okay, she’s not really alone since she has Windshear. 

Imagine the guard patrolling Berk and groaning as he sees his torchlight illuminate the eyes of a Hideous Zippleback roaming around town, realizing that the Thorston twins are probably sneaking around looking for someone to prank. 

Imagine Hookfang, intentionally sitting in shadows and letting the glow from his eyes startle Snotlout after hearing a ghost story.

Imagine Stoick, catching the glinting of Rumblehorn eyes from the darkness under the sailcloth leanto beside his house and for a moment feeling thrown that those aren’t Thunderdrum eyes looking back. 

And later, that same Rumblehorn’s eyes bring comfort and forgiveness to Eret as he spends long quiet nights outside with a dragon that, in another lifetime, he’d give to Drago without a second thought.

Imagine Valka, waiting for her chance to strike a dragon trapper camp, meeting the shiny yellow eyes of Cloudjumper and seeing the same determination in his eyes as she knows is in hers.

Imagine Hiccup, scared and feeling truly alone, watch as the empty eyes of his best friend flashes in the light of a plasma blast as intensely as if it gave off the light itself, even as he feels his father shove him to safety. 

I freaking loved the new season! (I watched it two times in a row one time in english and one time in german with my best Friend and Heathers german name is just horrible) And finally we got to see more of the twins, especially Ruffnut and I just had to draw her because she is perfect.Hope you like it! 😄
