|Film||Legend of the Boneknapper Dragon (2010)|
|Enemies||Gobber the Belch (formerly)|
A member of the Mystery Class, Boneknappers are built in a similar birdlike manner like the Deadly Nadder, albeit much larger. Their natural coloration seems to be a dull olive-green, though it can hard to see under their armor of bones. Unlike most dragons, which have hard scales to protect themselves from enemies, Boneknapper scales are thin and soft. To counter this weakness, Boneknappers cover themselves in the bones and horns of dead dragons and other animals.
He and Gobber the Belch have been rivals for quite long periods, however this was mostly due to the Boneknapper's objective to gain the perfect bone piece Gobber had with him, and Gobber didn't know about the species' nature to seek for bone armors. As long as his desire is fulfilled, he seems very friendly and playful to humans, like that of dogs. He is also quite generous to carry and send off Hiccup and other members of the gangs to the island of Berk, letting them ride on his back.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
- Strength: He is capable of carrying Gobber and all the members of the gangs on Berk (with a sheep as well) with ease.
- Stamina: Being a fully-grown Boneknapper, he has high leveled stamina to keep wearing the bone armor for his lifetime.
- Fire Breath: He bursts a rapid torrent of flame from his mouth that is unique to his species. This fire doesn't seem to be the hottest of all, but due to his size the range of the attack is quite large.
- Thundering Roar: He seems to have tremendous lung capacity as that his single roar can blow away surrounding objects vigorously. Without the special bone piece, however, the dragon's roar is nothing more than an air leakage sound from the vocal cord. How this logically works is currently unstated. This is also a mating call as well.
