Toothless is a dragon in the DreamWorks How to Train your Dragon movies. His breed is a Night Fury, a superior type of dragon that is clever, rare and can move at lightning speeds. It is assumed that Toothless is the last of his kind. Toothless is black in color, about 20 years old and has retractable teeth and a toothless smile, hence his name.
Toothless is the pet of a young Viking named Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III. Originally, Toothless was injured by Hiccup, who shot him down with a Bola Launcher, trying to prove himself to his father. However, when he found the injured dragon, Hiccup felt empathy for him and instead of killing him, he nursed Toothless back to health, even crafting a prosthetic part of the tail, so that Toothless can fly again after his injury. Toothless is a loyal and protective ally to Hiccup.
Hiccup and Toothless become inseparable and Hiccup becomes an unmatched dragon trainer as he is able to learn appeasement techniques on his dragon. In the end, he is able to prove to his Viking tribe that dragons do not have to be considered a threat to the people and that they do not have to be killed or fought with. He is able to teach his people that with love and patience, dragons can be great companions and can enrich the Vikings lives. Together, Hiccup and Toothless are able to end the dragon war.
