While I also disagree with this theory, please, fellow commentors, while you have all rights to voice your opinions about said theory, instead of just calling it downright bad, I advise that you give a list of things that you thought were weaker points and try to come up with ways to improve on them. - Or, add in your own input and knowledge about real life in order to counter this theory! Also, to those who are disagreeing with FTGHTATYD for the sole reason that they love HTTYD too much or were raised around it, you're being unfair to the content creator because your bias is closing you off from this new idea about said franchise. I appreciate the reasonableness that has already been shown in this comment section

Okay there are a lot of things wrong with this this so I'm gonna make a list: 1. You edited the 3rd movie into your hand in the beginning 2. You said yourself that Dragons are like glorified cats then say they are like reptiles even though cats have complex emotions 3. This is another universe so just because the dragons are reptiles doesn't mean they act like them. 4. You are using select pieces of information like stuff that last a couple of seconds over things that lasts for minutes that say otherwise What am I on? 5? Lets just go with that. 5. You say that hiccup trapped him when he couldve made a tail thingy for him in the first place. Guess what he couldn't he was just experimenting to try to help him he finally found something that worked that happened to need hiccup to use he tried to make one that he could use on his own but it failed. Then later in the third movie there was a use for it so he made it and it was lucky and worked 6. They bonded it wasn't Stockholm syndrome!

First video of yours I disliked and that is because you only told the information you wanted to. Like the tail, Hiccup has made toothless a tail that is fully controlled before in the shows but toothless did not want it because of the relationship they had... I feel like you did not watch two of the major HTTYD series.

Dragons are fictitious creatures. Because dragons are fictitious creatures, the author has free reign to create their level of emotional & intellectual intelligence however they wish in order to fit their story. You are equating them with real world lizards. Which is the equivalent of equating humans to apes. Yes we do share some traits, but humans are not apes (mostly) and apes are not humans. By the same token, dragons are not lizards & lizards are not dragons. Even though the animal is called a komodo dragon, it is in fact a monitor lizard.

Mat, these dragons are clearly not emotionless husks running on instinct only. Its shown in the movies that trust and friendship can be developed. And to call Toothless a slave would be too far-fetched. True he does fly away once he gets his tail back but hes clearly not as dumb as an animal. Have you even looked at the way he interacts with others ?! he understands that hiccup tries to help him, or at atleast knows hes not trying to hurt him. And for Hiccup, this is the first time he constructs these sort of devices so it would take quite the time to develop a prosthetic self-functioning flap. Hiccup trying to mount toothless is quite reasonable considering the sittuation. Toothless understands that without Hiccup he cant fly, so he allows him to mount him. Eventually, these two develop a bond that i could compare to a horse-rider bond or even a stronger one. Also for the Snoggletog special Toothless literally destroys the self-functioning flap to stay with Hiccup. In other words, you ignored obvious evidence which throws your whole "you cant train your dragon theory" out the window.

While it's a good theory and is well researched, it has been proven that the dragons in httyd can feel emotions and in Riders/Defenders of Berk Gobber has said that dragons have "very complex emotions" they are able to hold grudges and form bonds. Toothless has shown that he loves Hiccup and is visibly upset when (Spoiler for httyd 3) He says goodbye to Hiccup and also expresses joy when they fly or mess about. This also goes for the other dragons.

It's either a meme or someone that is annoyed at his theory. You did a fantastic job with your research, but I'll have to say, you missed a few parts. While in the movies it is not shown, there is a part in the 3rd movie when Astrid says that last time he rejected it, which means that the other parts of the series are canon. Which pretty much means that : 1. Dragons do feel emotions, although they aren't as good at showing it as the people on Berk or Toothless (he's legit expressing human emotions at this point) 2. Toothless could fly on his own, but decided not to. Like Hiccup said, he didn't need it. The theory itself is really well thought, and even if it had mistakes, still a 10/10 from me.

I think you forget that toothless has a personality like a cat and inelegance and feelings of humans. The movies aren't the only things in HTTYD there are shows which further their emotions. You can't compare these dragons with komodos which aren't EVEN DRAGON. Their brains are different and evolved. Also if Toothless WANTED to be free and "was being imprisoned" he would of just run away. You didn't watch his facial emotions either. Toothless loves hiccup enough that he'll let hiccup ride him again after toothless was already free. I think you missed some facts on this on...

Just a few personal nitpicks: - Hinging the argument on "Dragons wouldn't have emotional complexity because existing reptiles don't (not can't, just don't) have it" isn't very solid grounds for a theory. People aren't going to be satisfied with that because it's a pretty shallow argument that only accounts for one single possibility and ignores any other. - Not allowing Toothless control over the prosthetic tail fin could have a variety of reasons. Maybe Hiccup didn't know how to make one that could at that point. I mean, he was what, 14? And he wasn't well trusted with crafting judging by comments on it in the first movie's intro scene. He definitely knows how to make a human controlled one, but not necessarily how to make one that a Dragon could control. Also worth noting, Nightfuries _are_ regarded as the most dangerous and mysterious Dragon on Berk at the time. Giving Toothless the ability to fully fly on his own could have been disastrous for all Hiccup knew. - Having control over the fin in the special can be explained by how they're, at that point, pretty solidly a team and work together when flying. They both have moments in the series where one makes a better decision in flight than the other, and neither has full control on their own over that flight. - A better analogy to compare that to real life would be hunting an animal, injuring it in a way that effects the animal's mobility, realizing you can't hurt it and feeling a connection to it as you begin to understand there's more to them than what you were told, and attempting to care for that animal by helping them do the things they can't due to the injury. Sad and awful initially? Yes. Anything like using a shock collar to have control over a dog? No. That won't ever stop producing distress, shock or even pain, if it did it would lose the effect. Any attempt to fix the mistake of injuring the animal would likely distress the it in some form as they adapt to it, the goal should be keeping that distress as minimal and temporary as possible. Toothless adapts to being ridden extremely quickly, and with far less distress than something as normal as breaking in a horse (wild or otherwise) for riding would produce. It's not that unethical assuming that the reaction Toothless had stays the same. - Lastly, Toothless was netted in the middle of a Dragon raid on Berk and his injury caused by the crash landing. It was an action taken in defense and ignorance of why the Dragons did this that never gets repeated to train the other Dragons. Other Dragons seemed to be "trained", in the sense they're docile and allow people to ride them, when they were approached carefully and calmly, and given good scritchies. They're basically sky doggos.

but matpat in the third movie while hiccup was making a tale for toothless hiccup and astrid was having a conversation about pickup already doing that a tail that can be used by toothless alone the astrid specifically said that they already did that and toothless didn't want it so you're theory just goes downhill because it is already addressed in the the third movie that he already tried to do that but toothless did not want it but in the third movie toothless has a reason to want it that is actually what you need to be looking for details in the 3rd movie

Weeeelllllllllll this is... accurate, as always, I would argue things like the books that present much more advanced species of dragons that have somehow developed mammals characteristics and complex thoughts and emotions (not to mention they can speak) but then again, the movies have nothing to do with the books so yeah, you can only argue that dragons could be a superior evolution of lizards that have the beginnings of neo-cortexes that allow them to feel simple emotions

God damn it mat pat, I didn't want to watch this theory before I watched the movie, turns out I didn't need to since you only looked at the first and oh my no, you overlook the dragons are clearly shown to have a lot more advanced brains then reptiles, enough to compete with humans. Sure, maybe Hiccup was a bad trainer, he was the first one to try in the universe though and had no research papers or hindsight to call upon so was going at it from scratch. Sure he injured the dragon but in the end didn't kill them, would you call the humans who first worked with wolves a good example for modern people to use on dogs? But he still tried.

Love your channel. But this theory is on par with the ness is sans theory in levels of absolutle bullshit. There was a guy a while back that saved a crocodile and the crocodile clearly responded with *kindness, trust, and affection for years.* but well shit according to this shitshow of a theory, that is simply *impossible* . Seriously though. This theory is just embarrassing on how bad it is. Link to Chito and Poncho the Crocodile: https://www.animalsaustralia.org/features/amazing-croc-story.php I get that comparing universes and creatures from different universes to our reality is kinda your job, but this is one of those scenarios that just doesnt work. These dragons obviously dont fucking act like the reptiles in our universe. They show affection, trust, and kindess, along with other emotions to such a degree like a cross between humans, cats, and dogs. Did you even watch the fucking movies or animated series or any fucking thing relating to the series Matthew Robert Patrick?

What most people dont realise that the relationship between drags and vikings is absolutely horrible. The dragons are not just like your friendly samoyeds. If you watch all 3 movies, you will realise that the dragons are intelligent creatures, capable of expressing emotions and logical thinking. For example, when hiccup was rejected by light fury, he was sad and tried to get outta her friend zone. So, how would you think you would feel if you knew you had to listen to humans like they were your masters. The relationship is like rick and morty. Morty loves going on ricks adventure, but starts to dislike and at some point hates rick when he realises that he was just a tool used by rick to hide from the galactic federation. Its like being aware that youre a slave but cannot leave.

I like this theory, I really do. But one hole I have noticed is that you are comparing dragons to actual reptiles, seems fine, however... They are being mind controled by a much more massive dragon. How does that happen when it comes to brain power? Endorphins? But the mind control cant be endorphins or something of that nature, because toothless ends up resisting it. I'm curious on your theory on that to be honest, since it wasn't addressed here. o-o

You ignored the fact that eventually Toothless started loving Hiccup and all the other dragons that didn’t rely on their humans could leave and attack whenever they wanted. But they didn’t because they didn’t like their old lifestyle. Also they were safe from dragon hunters. And in the short Toothless didn’t want to leave. He only wanted to fly with Hiccup. Your beginning points were correct but everything else was easily debunked. The reason they released the dragons in HTTYD 3 was because they found a safe place for the dragons with no danger of the dragon hunters. All the dragons realized that they had a safe place to go and why stay when you can be safe basically forever. The humans realized that too. You only skimmed across everything they were doing not going into depth.

Just saying MatPat. If you actually di want to train a dragon; do it like Valka did (Hiccup's mother). She spent 20 years among dragon and not training them, taming them, or even domesticating them, but befriending them like you would a human. She knew these dragons have EMOTIONS and Valka is the right way to go. Follow in Valka's foot steps, if you want not just a pet dragon, but a friend who will fly to the ends of earth for you. 🌎 But hey that's just a theory, A TEXT theory. And Cut! 🎥

This is the very first Film Theory that I have to disagree with. Your theory is wrong on many levels, the dragons clearly show a very high level of intelligence and complicated emotions. Hiccup put himself in danger to help Toothless fly again, the dragon even bit his leg off so if that is worth anything, is that makes them even. Hmmm, really Mat it makes me think you really didn't watch the movies clearly.

Except the dragons in this movie were modeled off of cats and dogs. Secondly, as a reptile handler of many years I've gotta point out something. Though their brains may not be developed like ours are, reptiles do have their own primitive form of trust. Reptiles can recognize different people including their owners through sight and smell, and they can show content or uncomfortableness when being around certain people or certain types of people. The best example I can think of in my personal experience would be with a python I had. She strongly disliked certain types of people (mostly women) and would routinely strike when handled by them or when they walked by the enclosure. However, the snake was more than comfortable with most men, she seemed to enjoy being handled by them and rarely showed signs of fear around them. This particular python also did not mind children and did quite well with them. However, any female person of a certain age or size, the snake showed distrusting and defensive tendencies towards. Now, I was not the first caretaker for this snake, but this to me shows that the snake probably had a negative experience with a woman in the past or sees women as a threat for some other reason. I also have one snake who is very tame for me and most other people but anxious and distrustful around my brother, even though my brother has not hurt the snake. Any other reptile owner can also tell you that they do in fact tame down with handling and can display trust towards humans that wasn't originally there. So take from that what you will, but it isn't simply a black-and-white all instinct animal. They don't develop emotional bonds with their handlers but they can absolutely gain trust and look forward to handing
