Pub Thugs are supporting characters in Disney's 2010 film Tangled.
When Rapunzel and Flynn Rider (aka Eugene Fitzherbert) arrive at the Snuggly Duckling, a seedy pub filled with thugs, the thugs recognize Flynn from the poster and plan to turn him in, but Rapunzel confronts the men, stating that she needs Flynn to complete her dream of seeing the lights. The thugs decide to help her, as they also have unfinished dreams.
When the guards arrive, Hook Hand helps Rapunzel and Flynn by showing them a secret passage way until Maximus discovers it. Later in the film, Maximus rounds up Hook Hand, Vladimir, Atilla, Ulf and Shorty to help Eugene escape from death row to save Rapunzel, and they succeed. At the end of the film, Hook Hand gets his dream come true and becomes a concert pianist, Big Nose finally gets a girlfriend, Ulf is very happy as Eugene narrates, and Shorty is seen at the end of the movie being lifted up by lanterns in his cupid outfit puckering his lips

Role in the CrossoverEdit
While never outright stated, the fashion and attitude of some of the pub thugs suggest that at least some of them hold classic-nordic origins, so the odds of some of them being from the Barbaric Archipelago is very likely. How they would respond to Hiccup would vary greatly. They would probably ignore him, given his short and unassuming appearance.
Should they learn of his history, they could react with admiration, awe, fear, hostility and/or any differing combinations of the four in being within the presence of the famed "Dragon Conqueror."
While they do not seem to care much for Flynn, the denizens of the Snuggly Duckling have taken a liking to the lost princess, inspired by her dream and willing to help the two of them, dropping their stance on turning Flynn int the authorities immediately. They later turn up to rescue Flynn from the gallows (having received the news from Maximus somehow) specifically so that he could save Rapunzel.
Since then, they have turned up on more than one occasion with the two, attending/performing Rapunzel's homecoming and even being their for their wedding, implying that not only have they kept in touch with her, but that she was able to give them.
