Something I noticed about the dynamics of Snotlout and Mala is, when she first started inspecting his potential (poking his back, etc) he was visibly uncomfortable. And he didn't really show any romantic interest in her until she revealed her intentions to make him a king, and even then any endearments he expresses are connected to the fact he might become royalty (Queenie, my queen) and this kinda makes me chuckle, but sigh in unsurprised disapproval. He's more interested in the kingship lol

It’s true: Snotlout is not interested in Mala at all as an individual romantic interest. As you point out, he’s uncomfortable with her checking him out; and he seems to tune out her more interested actions to think about what he would rather think about: becoming king. Snotlout’s interests are about power, authority, and wealth. He treats Mala obsequiously as a means of making himself more likable… so that she’s more likely to keep him in favor and make him king. The only reason Snotlout acts like this around Mala is just to become king. Totally not interested in any romance.

It’s amusingly fitting with Snotlout’s selfish character. We know he wants respect. We know he wants riches. We know he wants power. If it means he has to flirt with a woman and marry her to get those things, he’s willing to do it.

I also feel as though Mala herself is not completely intrigued with Snotlout. It is true she acts perkily and positively around him with a big smile on her face. However, this happens after he saves her and she believes he is the chosen individual from the prophecy. She’s excited for that reason and wants to look on the bright side: the prophecy is fulfilled, these are good times. However, while she tries to talk about how Snotlout is brave, going to succeed in the trials, etc., and keeps an outwardly positive expression plastered on her face… we do see her slip from time to time. We see her get baffled around Snotlout or lose her smile when he starts talking. We see her take interest in Hiccup over someone like Snotlout. We see her, even, get disappointed with Snotlout (especially when he runs away).

It means I suspect that Mala is being optimistic about the situation and wants to be happy, and she keeps thinking things to make her happy about the moment. However, there are some internal doubts and displeasures about it inside of her. She’s not fully convinced. She keeps trying to act like she’s fully convinced this is a good deal, but I think there is a part of her that knows and feels this isn’t a good match.

It’s interesting dynamics!
