Mericcup

Mericcup is the pairing between Merida DunBroch from Brave and Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III from How to Train Your Dragon. This pairing is considered an extension of How to Be Brave, and is one of the most popular ships among the Big Four. 

Relationship Overview

Hiccup is well-rounded and mellow, Merida is passionate and aggressive, but as they say–opposites attract. Because of their very different yet similar personalities, fans have also grown to favor "Mericcup" as a popular ship without The Big Four. Merida's film, Brave, hints a feud between her kingdom of DunBroch and the Vikings ("invaders from the sea"), leading fans to believe that it could be possible for Hiccup and Merida to meet and possibly become friends or star-crossed lovers. They both have some troubles in the parent department (Merida with her mother and Hiccup with his father) and are misunderstood in their society (Hiccup is expected to be more manly, Merida is expected to be more lady-like), so they can relate to each other on that level. Some fans suggest that there could be a possible family relationship between the two. Even without romance, Hiccup and Merida are shown to have a close bond between each other.
