Actually on the topic of HTTYD are dragons meant to have a giant overlord by nature or not. Like at first I thought the red death/big dragon from the first movie was just a prick that made the other dragons do its bidding, but the second movie implies that dragons naturally will hivemindedlt follow orders from a grand master dragon.
Does this mean instead of liberating them humans basically killed the dragon’s natural leader in order to make themselves be able to control them for their own bidding.
Also dragons don’t seem to be a single species so there wouldn’t be any evolutionary benefit for them all on mass trying to appease the needs of a single unrelated dragon of a different species, unless the big “leader” dragons like the red death and the bewilderbeasts evolved specifically to act as social parasites, or have the ability to control the minds of “"lesser” dragons like some unworldly abomination.
When Toothless became the “alpha” dragon in the second movie does this mean he now has some unnatural power over the will and minds of other lizards?
