About this AUEdit
In this AU, members of the fandom are portrayed as active members of the sport of botfighting; a sport where miniature remote controlled robots fight in the ring.
How the characters themselves are portrayed usually differs, from being high schoolers to being students of San Fransokyo Tech and even full-on graduates. Whether or not the bot-fighting they partake in is legal or illegal may vary.
Whether or not this AU takes place in San Fransokyo (or at least in the same world) is not required, but is most common.
The Big FourEdit
In this AU, Hiccup is seen as the reigning champ, given his technical know-how translating to modern times. Given his timid nature, Hiccup would usually keep his botfighting hobby a secret from his personal life, drawing up a reputation as a result. His bot is mostly based off of Toothless, keeping the Night Fury as the core blueprint of its design.
In this AU, Jack (as his human self) is a botfighter that does it for fun and brings his sister along for support. His bot has been designed after a white rabbit-like design, an obvious reference to one of his guardian friends, Bunny.
In this AU, Merida possesses a brawler bot, her bot in particular drawing many influences from scottish culture with bears as a primary influence in its design.
In this AU, Rapunzel is a botfighter who's robot has been designed after a chameleon-like design, an obvious reference to her animal friend Pascal.
Since Hiro is already a student at San Fransokyo Tech and spent time in the botfight fighting ring, he is usually portrayed as himself, as well as a fulltime botfighter and reigning champ with Megabot by his side.
Tooth's bot is mostly based on her fairies or their hummingbird like appearance and features. She is mostly seen having more than one bot at her side.
In this AU, Astrid is a botfighter that hopes to go up against the champ and that her bot would someday beat his. Her bot is mostly based off of Stormfly or a blue bird, the form that the Nadder is sometimes given in Modern AU.
