  1. How To Train Your Dragon is a 2010 animated film by DreamWorks Animation. The film is based on a book with the same name, written by Cressida Cowell.

    The main protagonist of the story, Hiccup is shown as a very lanky and almost hopeless teenager. His biggest wish is to make his father, the chief of the village proud of his achievements. In an attempt to do so Hiccup sneaks out during a dragon raid and manages to capture a Night Fury, the rarest and most difficult dragon to even see, much less catch. However, the young hero soon realizes that he is unable to kill a dragon no matter how hard he tries. Instead, he studies and trains with his new dragon partner, Toothless.

    The two grow close and Hiccup has to hide him from the villagers who think that Hiccup has turned into some sort of dragon-slaying genius. He does not want to let his father down and is soon chosen by the village elder to slay his first dragon in the arena. During the fight Toothless, tries to rescue Hiccup but everything goes downhill and the Chief imprisons Toothless and uses his senses to lead them to the dragon’s nest. The Vikings end up in a battle with the Red Death, the alpha of that nest. Hiccup and Toothless fight against the large dragon in the sky and defeat it by shooting a fireball in its destroying its wings. At that point, Hiccup gets hit by the Red Death’s tail as it is going down and falls off of the saddle. Toothless tries to save him but loses control because his prosthetic wing is already damaged. As they fall to the ground Toothless manages to protect Hiccup between his wings. By the time, the Chief reaches the two Hiccup is alive but has already lost his leg.
