Night Fury (HTTYD)

The Night Fury is a dragon species from How to train your dragon with only a single confirmed remaining specimen, a male called Toothless. Night Furies are extremely rare creatures. They are very stealthy and intelligent and can become very dangerous if a person was to approach it at a close distance. The Unholy Offspring of Lightning and Death Itself, this dragon is one of the rarest and most powerful dragons in existence. It is also an extremely intelligent dragon, hiding in the night while preparing to dive-bomb its victims and is a member of the Strike Class. One thing that seems to be unique to this dragon is the ability to retract its teeth into its gums, making it appear toothless. Although it is a smaller dragon with a length of 20 feet and a wingspan of 50 feet, do not be fooled. This dragon is not to be engaged in combat. Your only chance is instead to hide and pray that it does not find you. Night Furies are also the rarest of all dragons; They have been hunted by the dreaded dragon hunter Grimmel the Grisly to near-extinction. Only Toothless remains the last of his kind. However the Hidden World might still have more Night Furies in hiding. As of the Dragons: The Nine Realms it’s been confirmed that the Night Furies are now currently extinct.

Physical Description[]


  • Cat-like eyes
  • Ear-like appendages
  • Nubs and tendrils protruding from head
  • Secondary wings
  • Tail fins



Night Furies are generally jet black in color and are small in size. Their wings are exceptionally large compared to their small bodies, enabling these reclusive dragons to fly faster, farther, and longer than any other dragon species. Night Furies have a pair of yellow eyes, each with pupils that determines the Night Fury's mood: narrow pupils represent the Night Fury's aggression and anxiety while larger pupils represent the Night Fury's friendliness and docility. Night Furies also have two sets of sharp retractable teeth. Like all dragons, Night Furies depend on their own flukes for flight. If their flukes are injured or missing, then Night Furies cannot fly. A Night Fury also depends on the dark-lit sky as cover when attacking enemies. The Night Fury is the fastest, smartest, and rarest of the known species of dragons, It is medium-sized with a sleek, dark black body. It has faint lighter patterns similar to that of a black panther across its body.

The Night Fury somewhat resembles a cross between a panther and an axolotl or a gecko in general appearance, has two pairs of wings with a shape similar to a bat, two mobile, ear-like appendages on the back of its head that show its mood and help it hear, and it has other pairs of these flaps around their jaw depending on their age. They also have a pair of large, yellowish-green, cat-like eyes and sharp retractable teeth. Unlike most dragon species, the Night Fury has a short neck and lacks any kind of horns. The dragon is about 26 feet in length.

In flight, the Night Fury's wingspan is unrivaled, measuring approximately 48 feet, making it resemble a plane. This allows it to fly faster, longer and further than any of the other dragon species. It uses flukes on its tail to help steer and maneuver, similar to an airplane's rudder. However, a Night Fury will be incapable of flying if one of these fins is missing, cut off, damaged or destroyed which shows that they are also used for ballast in flight. It is also capable of taking flight from a standing start like a pigeon.

Powers and Abilities[]


The Night Fury can shoot bursts of purple-colored flames, composed of ionized oxyacetylene. Plasma blasts explode directly upon impact, sometimes exploding in midair at higher altitudes because of the cut off oxygen supply.

The Night Fury can fire at different levels of power: For example, it can fire concussive blasts that can knock people off their feet, while at the same time being able to destroy entire battlements with more powerful blasts. They can use fire to bend the bars of the training arena in Berk, and can also stun dragons. As shown in the second film, it is shown that a Night Fury's plasma blasts, when they are serious, are able to kill a Viking, even for a viking of Stoick's size, with one shot.

These blasts can be fired with pinpoint accuracy. The Night Fury also has the habit to light and warm up the place where it will sleep, as seen in the films and the DreamWorks Dragons: The Series. This fire is pretty strong, being able to melt down the arena's cage, and is said to be incredibly hot, and can ignite fireplaces, stoves, and lamps.

The Night Fury's plasma blast can sometimes be reflected off surfaces such as rock walls. They can use this as a tactic to take out fast-moving objects in tight, narrow spaces. It was shown when Toothless fires a reflective blast to take out Heather and Windshear. This was shown again in “Family Matters” where Toothless shot one Dragon Flyer and it reflected to hit another Flyer nearby.

A strange effect occurs when the plasma blast of a Night Fury hits the lightning of a Skrill, as displayed in "A View to a Skrill, Part 1". The two blasts combine in an electro-plasmatic reaction to form a sort of mid-air seismic charge or supernova. This blast was enough to knock both the Skrill and the Night Fury out of the sky. It also knocked a Zippleback from the sky in "A View to a Skrill, Part 1".

Unlike Light Furies, a Night Fury's plasma blast cannot cloak themselves.

Shot Limit Recharge[]

While their shot limit is unknown, it is implied to be six. There is a lot of uncertainty about the Night Fury's shot limit, even if most sources and Hiccup himself states that Toothless' limit is six. In the final fight of the first film, he was able to fire more than ten shots, with seven full-powered blasts in quick succession. Later, in the episode "Frozen", Toothless' shot limit was counted to be about 14-15 shots. Implying that Night Furies can recharge their blasts pretty quickly.

Flame Jacket[]

In The Stowaway, Toothless demonstrates the ability to set himself alight with blue flames, similar to a Monstrous Nightmare.

Strength and Combat[]

The Night Fury is strong, being able to fend off Vikings like Stoick and several others at once, as seen in the first film. He can carry the combined weight of Stoick and Hiccup, over 400 pounds. Toothless has also shown to push a Whispering Death to the ground, which requires great force.

Toothless could also carry Hookfang by his tail with the extra weight of Hiccup and Snotlout. However, he was shown to be struggling to lift Barf and Belch with the extra weight of Hiccup. In "The Eel Effect", Toothless manages to lift and push away Meatlug even while she was sitting on him. Toothless's tail is very flexible and strong, as he has used it to knock out Outcast guards, push back a Razorwhip, strike a Triple Stryke onto the floor, push a large Singetail off, and easily knock Krogan unconscious.

Toothless is also a very capable and persistent fighter on the ground. He has easily taken out a Gronckle in a short amount of time, as well as holding his own with Monstrous Nightmares and Whispering Deaths. Even with the inability to fly, he is a capable fighter as shown in "What Flies Beneath". He has proven against a Triple Stryke, a dragon of a similar power level.

Tail Whipping[]

Despite having a small tail, Toothless is shown to use his tail to whip other opponents. He used this to take out Dagur in "The Night and the Fury" despite being restrain by bolas. He used this during his fights with the Fighter Razorwhip in "Stryke Out", knock a Dragon Flyer off a Singetail in "Chain of Command", and later used it to knock Krogan out in one hit. It appears that Night Furies tail seem to be prehensile or telescopic as Toothless once handed Hiccup his Inferno while being trapped in amber.

Wing Shield[]

Night Furies are able to use their enormous wings to shield themselves as Toothless protected Hiccup from being burned alive or even killed. A notable example of this was in "Animal House", where Toothless and Stormfly used it to protect Astrid and Hiccup from being buried in an avalanch. Another example was in "Zippleback Down", where Toothless used his wings to shield Hiccup from Torch. Also in "Dragon Eye of the Beholder, Part 1", where a bunch of arrows bounced off Toothless' wing when he shielded Hiccup from them. This also happen in “A Time to Skrill”, where a dragon root arrow bounce off of Toothless. Toothless also used this in "Crash Course" to protect Hiccup from the Cavern Crasher's fire and in "Quake, Rattle and Roll" where he shielded both Fishlegs and Hiccup with both of his wings. Toothless' wings are also able to withstand a Small Shadow Wing lava blast as shown in "The Longest Day". Toothless' wings can also withstand the fire of a Singetail as seen with his battle with Deathlout in "The Wings of War, Part 2".


Being a Strike Class dragon, Night Furies have pin-point accuracy so they hardly ever miss. Even when disoriented by the Screaming Death’s scream, Toothless was still able to hit the Screaming Death in the head with a plasma blast. Toothless was also able to hit a Snow Wraith while the dragon was fighting Gothi and didn’t miss or accidentally shoot Gothi. In "Something Rotten on Berserker Island", Toothless was able to take out many Berserkers in few shots, despite being on the mountain and the Riders being on the ground.


Toothless, time to disappear! [src]
— Hiccup, to Toothless before he blends into the dark clouds

The Night Fury's jet black color and dark scales make it nearly impossible to spot at night. The only warnings that it gives is the sound of the dive-bombing with a loaded blast, right before it attacks with a powerful plasma blast, as well as the stars disappearing behind it. The only way to spot a Night Fury flying at night is when it passes its flame-engulfed blast. Hiccup was able to shoot one down as it flew past a burned catapult tower that it just shot.

It works best under the cover of night according to Hiccup, Night Furies are sitting ducks if they are found in the daytime by enemies.


Much like Light Furies, Night Furies are capable of cloaking. This allows them to blend into their surroundings. They do this, in a similar manner to the Skrill, by summoning/absorbing lightning from the sky (i.e. from electric storms or clouds) to encase themselves in lightning to heat up their scales and turn them reflective, causing an electric aura to surround them and become temporarily invisible, although it has been shown to use up a lot of their energy. As a Night Fury enters its 'cloaked form', it causes a massive wave of electrical energy that electrocutes everything within a close radius, which is shown when Toothless electrocutes Grimmel's Deathgrippers that are clinging onto him and Hiccup, causing them to plummet into the sea. It is implied that this technique must be taught to a Night Fury by another of its species, as Toothless seemed unaware of this ability until he attempted to copy the Light Fury, but there are alternative methods to perform the cloaking, seen by the Light Fury disappearing into its own plasma blast. This ability also surprised Grimmel himself as he didn't know Night Furies can do this, despite successfully hunting them down for years. Hiccup’s dragon suit being made of Toothless' scales, he was able to avoid being electrocuted and able to go in "cloak" form to stay temporarily invisible with Toothless.

Speed and Agility[]

Fishlegs: "He's too fast, Hiccup!"
Hiccup: "Not for a Night Fury!"
— The duo referring to a Speed Stinger

The Night Fury is among the fastest known dragons. It is said to be the only dragons known to reach speeds that break the sound barrier. The Night Fury's streamlined sleek-shaped body and massive powerful wings help it obtain a speed limit higher than a real-life P-51 Mustang. Night Furies don't have sharp spikes or spines, instead, they have short and thin fin-like spines that prevent greater air resistance. This gives the Night Fury a huge advantage in high-speed flight.

Night Furies are incredibly agile dragons that can dodge many blasts from other dragons, arrows, and catapults. They also have a very quick reaction to an opposing threat. On land, they can outrun and outmaneuver most other dragons and even being able to jump to and leap from various objects like trees or walls as shown when Toothless was running to save Hiccup from the Monstrous Nightmare in the first film. They also have incredible reflexes as Toothless almost never got hit once by a dragon root arrow due to his expert dodging and weaving.

Many species of dragons are capable of rivaling the speed of Night Furies while in flight. Those that have been seen to do so are the Dramillion, the Deathgripper, the Flightmare, the Light Fury, the Screaming Death, the Singetail, the Skrill, the Small Shadow, the Snow Wraith, the Speed Stinger, and the Night Light. Even giant dragons, due to their longer wingspan, like the Red Death and the Typhoomerang are fast enough to catch up with a Night Fury in the air.


The Night Furies' main type of attack is dive-bombing. Night Furies fold their wings to create a streamlined, aerodynamic shape while they dive from the sky, helping them to achieve greater speed while they accelerate downwards. It has been observed that at the last moment, Night Furies open their wings to create the drag, then lift off. The blast can do great amounts of damage, as one has even been seen to knock a Red Death to the ground during the events of How to Train Your Dragon. If a Night Fury does this at night, it remains completely camouflaged and blends in with the dark sky so its targets can't see it coming. Furthermore, Toothless has been seen intentionally flying straight upwards, then diving down before changing directions such that he is parallel to the ground to gain speed for normal flight. The approach of a Night Fury is almost always accompanied by a high pitched whistling sound.


In Dragons: Riders of Berk, episode "We Are Family, Part 1", Toothless demonstrates the ability to use echolocation. When Night Furies are at locations where their sight is limited, making it hard to fly, they emit a sonic blast that has a special signal. This signal, taking the shape of purple-colored sound waves, bounces off of all objects and obstacles nearby and allows the dragon to avoid them, even in mid-flight. Unlike bats, this signal, or at least part of it, is still low enough to be within the human hearing range; humans can hear the dragon using the signal. Night Furies can also use this method when they are trying to find an object in open areas where visibility is low, such as when Toothless was trying to locate the Skrill in “A View to a Skrill, Part 1” and the Snow Wraith in a snowstorm in "Dragon Eye of the Beholder, Part 2".


Night Furies have high jaw strength. They can also retract their teeth, to avoid chipping and breaking when not in use. The ability to retract his teeth is what earned Toothless his name. It is unknown how strong a Night Fury's jaw strength is but it is shown Toothless left a bite mark on his nemesis hide at some point in his pass and but he was unable to break harden Death Song amber, as when he tried to free a Deadly Nadder trapped in Death Song's amber.


Night Furies are shown to be good swimmers as demonstrated by Toothless. He can swim at high speed and hold his breath for quite a while, but Night Furies do have a limited lung capacity and will drown unless they have access to air, as evidenced in the first film, second film, and several episodes. Although a great swimmer, Toothless can’t hold his breath for long or catch up to Tidal Class dragons like the Scauldron in "Big Man on Berk" or the Shellfire in "Shell Shocked, Part 1". In “Cast Out, Part 2” he was able to swim with the extra weight of Alvin and in “Dire Straits”, Toothless is able to use his wings and tail to help him swim. While in the second film, he was left wet and exhausted, from being saved by the Seashockers, he didn't have much time to gather air and hold his breath.


While the claws of Night Furies appear to simply be black extrusions of keratin, in truth they can flex on command and act as rudimentary fingers. In the first film, Toothless escapes the cove by being able to flex his claws and secure his grip past the edge of the cove wall, enabling him to pull himself up. In "Tone Death", the claws are also able to easily slash through Death Song amber that has been weakened by flaming Monstrous Nightmare gel.

Wall Crawling[]

Night Furies can climb any terrain such as cave walls, using their long sharp claws to grip the surface. They can even stay on a vertical wall facing downwards without problem. This was shown by Toothless several times as in “Stryke Out” he was on the Fighting Arena chain dome before the Triple Stryke knocked him down.

Acute Senses[]

Night Furies have an uncanny sense of hearing and they can hear long distances, as proven by Toothless when he was able to hear Hiccup yelling from the cove and when Toothless first heard a Scauldron in "Free Scauldy" and was the first to hear a wild Monstrous Nightmare flying pass the Dragon Riders cave while he was asleep in “The Night and the Fury”. They also have large eyes that give them excellent vision to see through fog or thick clouds, as seen in many episodes like “Twinsanity” or “A View to a Skrill, Part 1” and have night vision as they are adapted to fly at night. They cannot see well in complete darkness, thus they will use echolocation. When angry, or under eel influence, Night Furies will see everything in shades of red with their images becoming blurry and contorted.

They also have a good sense of smell, as Toothless tracked Hiccup by his sense of smell, but loses him when Hiccup takes to the air on the back of a Deadly Nadder. Hiccup mentioned in “The Night and Fury” that Night Furies can smell danger, as a lie to save a Monstrous Nightmare but it is later revealed that it was true as Toothless demonstrated several times, their sense of smell is also acute, though not near the levels of the Tracker Class dragons. In "Defiant One", Toothless was able to sense a wild Monstrous Nightmare that was nearby, in "Free Scauldy", Toothless smelled a Changewing pack despite them being invisible, in "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes", Toothless sensed the Smokebreaths in the scrap of metal, and in "A Grim Retreat", Toothless sensed Grimora in a lagoon before the other dragons did. In the Rise of Berk game, he was also aware of the Sweet Death’s tree tongue and didn’t allow Hiccup to inspect the "tree" further.

Stamina and Endurance[]

Night Furies also have high stamina and durability. They can survive falls from the sky with fairly minor injuries as demonstrated in the films and DreamWorks Dragons: The Series. They can use their wings to repel weapons as also shown in the TV series, especially in "Dragon Eye of the Beholder, Part 1", where a bunch of arrows bounced off Toothless' wing when he shielded Hiccup from them. He can take attacks from his opponents and still look untouched, as after he was poisoned by the Triple Stryke he was still able to fight and defeat him. He also showed twice that he can endure loud sounds as in “Tunnel Vision”, “Appetite for Destruction”, and "The Longest Day", he was able to endure the loud screeches of the Large Shadow Wing and still hit the Screaming Death despite being disoriented by their scream, suggesting loud sounds don’t affect a Night Fury as badly as most other dragons. However he was shown to be exhausted during the first search for the Skrill and after carrying heavy objects or someone heavy like Stoick for a whole day. Hiccup stated in "Live and Let Fly" that in the previous episode "We Are Family Part 2" Toothless was chained up for days and didn't eat but was still fit after he broke out. In the second film, Toothless was able to instantly get back up despite fall from the sky and crashing into solid ice. It is also shown that Toothless (if he wasn't flightless at the time) he would of flow back up and saved Hiccup.

Night Furies are shown to have extremely dense scales, as only a Screaming Death's are shown to be tougher. A Night Fury's scales appear to be much tougher and stronger than the Light Fury's, to the point that Night Furies need something much hotter than just their own fire to cloak. It is also shown when Toothless uses his wings to shield Hiccup they suffer no damage.

Intelligence and Mimicry[]

Night Furies are extremely intelligent, surpassing nearly all known dragon species. In the TV series Toothless can almost completely understand everything said to him. He can understand verbal cues and nonverbal cues, as showcased in "Twinsanity". Toothless also displays an impeccable ability to learn, process, and remember various tricks like the "Barrel Roll" in "Worst in Show". In daily, casual conversations, Toothless also appears to be able to grasp Hiccup's words and comprehend most of them.

Night Furies display a high level of emotional and sentimental awareness of both humans and other dragons alike. Toothless can sense emotions by picking up on oral and behavioral signals and act accordingly in response to them. For example, during the events of How to Train Your Dragon, he sensed that Hiccup was not out to hurt him and reciprocated by letting down his guard. However, his emotional awareness is not to be disregarded as mere obedience. Night Furies are wary creatures that are observant and evaluative and Toothless only trusted Hiccup after assessing him. Furthermore, in "Animal House", Toothless was the first to sense that the Riders were cold and suffering and took the initiative to shield them, showcasing a heightened awareness and empathy towards his surroundings. In "The Eel Effect", despite suffering from Eel Pox, Toothless stopped himself from shooting blasts when he accidentally hit Hiccup and ran away to protect his rider from himself. In "Free Scauldy" and "Living on the Edge", Toothless was shown to grieve for the dying Scauldy and Garffiljorg, despite not knowing them prior.

In "We Are Family, Part 2", Toothless was captured and imprisoned in Outcast Island and he was able to outsmart two Outcast soldiers by himself by pretending to be unconscious and tricking them into taking off his mouth muzzle. In “The Longest Day”, Toothless immediately figured out the Small Shadow Wings were hunting and was able to use the Large Shadow Wing’s size against him, while Hiccup needed time to think of a plan.

Night Furies also seem to be one of the few dragons to show creativity. In the first film, Toothless was shown drawing after seeing Hiccup draw. In the second film, Toothless attempted to draw again after Valka drew a map in the snow. The range of his mimicry also includes human facial expressions, as displayed in the first film. Hiccup in DreamWorks Dragons: To Berk and Beyond! states that "Night Furies love to doodle!"

Glowing Body[]

Similar to a Flightmare, by eating glowing algae, a Night Fury can control the brightness of its glow. It can turn its glow on bright in order to scare off other dragons who are trying to attack it. This was shown in "Fright of Passage". However this came with a drawback since usually Night Furies' scales would blend perfectly with the night sky, but since Toothless’ body started to glow, he was unable to hide from the Flightmare. It chased and attacked Toothless, but lost him when he hid inside a cave. After some time, the glow wore off. The glowing algae also seemed to made his plasma blast glow brighter, as when Toothless tried to blast the Flightmare he seemed a bit disoriented in the eyes after using them the first time but he eventually overcame it when he battled the Flightmare the second time.

Sagefruit Immunity[]

As shown in “Defenders of the Wing, Part 1”, while Night Furies are affected by the calming effects of sagefruit it is shown that Toothless is able to resist its effects to protect Hiccup.

Secondary Spines/Flaps[]

In How to Train Your Dragon 2, Valka showed Hiccup hidden spines on Toothless' back, that even the dragon himself didn't know about. After that, he can extend them at will. Those spines are flat, leathery fins, placed in 'V' shape and extending from his back to the end of his tail. They gave him more maneuverability and control in flight. Dragons acquire this ability when they reach a certain age as revealed in the film commentary.

Alpha Dominance Display[]

When the Night Fury's "Alpha" mode is unleashed, its spines, the ridge between its eyes, the inside of its mouth, and its nose glow with a translucent blue, reminiscent of the blueish plasma blasts it fires. Also, although this may just be natural video blurring, when Toothless fires shots, the now translucent blue parts of his body glows a little brighter. After having fired the shots, the glow slowly fades away. In "Alpha" mode, Night Furies also appear to not have a shot limit. Dragons: Rise of Berk calls this glowing effect Toothless' "Titan Wing" stage, while School of Dragons calls it his "Alpha" look, indicating the franchise is unsure what to call this effect.

The book DreamWorks Dragons: To Berk and Beyond!, written by Richard Hamilton, has revealed that every dragon is capable of entering this state when challenging an Alpha, but so far only Toothless was shown to do so.


The only weaknesses Night Furies possess is if their tailfins are damaged, they cannot fly. Since they have no known unique weakness, they are one of the hardest dragons to combat but they are susceptible to other common dragon weakness like Dragon Root, scared of eels because it makes them really sick, can be poisoned by Blue Oleander flowers and Dragonvine, and are affected by Grimora Parasites. For some reason a Dragon Root arrow could render them weak and vulnerable for some time, while other dragons can recover faster, as seen in "Enemy of My Enemy". However it shown that like all dragons Night Furies have a weak spot near their fluke area where if a Dragon Root arrow was in that place it rendered Toothless weak and unconscious for several hours until given an antidote.

Tail Fin Dependency[]

The Night Furies' dual tail fins on their tails allow them to remain stabilized in flight. If one is damaged, or missing, they will be unable to fly. As stated above their tails are one of the main sources of their flying ability, and altering the tail can change its abilities.

Cold Temperatures[]

According to Grimmel, Night Furies are unable to survive in consistently cold environments like tundras, snowy mountains, or arctic islands. This means that unlike most dragons, Night Furies cannot live in frigid conditions, icy cold water, and even cannot endure low temperatures, even lower ones. It is shown in the second film that if Toothless wasn't saved by Sailback and Valka's Seashockers, from the icy cold water, he would of likely died thanks to his flightless.

Flying Long Distances[]

According to Grimmel, Night Furies are also unable to fly for long distances without resting. When traveling they need to take breaks in some islands before they can continue on. When Night Furies are tired/sleepy they are easy prey to catch or hunt down.

Dive Bombing in Confined Areas[]

Even though, dive bombing are the Night Furies greatest advantage it has one major weakness it can't be done in confined or small areas when in flight such as in tunnels or caves despite having enough room to fly, they can't access their full dive bombing speed.


Night Furies natural habitat is currently unknown. In promotional material for the first movie, their eggs are said to be laid on tops of mountains and blend in with the starry sky. The Night Fury egg is very smooth black in color. It stated they don't live on mountains because their plasma blast explodes on higher altitude. Night Furies also don't live in volcanoes, since Toothless can't sense lava. However since Night Furies primarily feed on fish, it can be deduced that they prefer to live near large bodies of water.

Due to hunting them down to a blink of extinction, Grimmel likely knows the natural habitat, as he states that Night Furies are unable to survive in consistently cold environments like tundras, snowy mountains, or arctic islands. However it is shown repeatedly that Toothless is able to survive in cold environments without any discomfort so it is possible Night Furies cannot survive in cold for a very long time.


According to the Book of Dragons, the Night Fury is considered to be so aggressive that it is likened to "the unholy offspring of lightning and death itself". Night Furies are generally very aggressive to any form of threat they find, similar to how the other dragons treat the Vikings of Berk. But they are also curious creatures that attempt to understand new things they observe and are intelligent enough to attempt to recreate the actions that they see. Night Furies, in comparison to most other dragons, are very capable of communicating, and seemingly understanding human speech: the best evidence of this is when Toothless makes a noise in agreement with Hiccup regarding the fact that the Red Death can fly or when Hiccup orders Toothless not to kill Astrid. They are, however, fiercely loyal and protective. Once a bond is formed it is close to unbreakable.

Night Furies are piscivorous, eating only fish as opposed to other forms of meat. A Night Fury will use its teeth as makeshift fishing hooks to grab onto prey before swallowing it whole.

Night Furies greatly resemble cats, dogs, and bats. Their pupils dilate when they are in a good mood, and narrow to slits when startled, aggressive, or controlled. Their ear nubs are also very expressive, constantly perking and dropping to signal their emotions and their opinions just like cats or dogs would do in real life.

Outdoors, they will hang downwards from near the base of the tail, with the tail fins hanging directly in front of the face, and wings wrapped loosely around the body. They are also able to do so in caves, although it appears the tail is needed differently and does not hang downward. Sometimes when they are getting ready to sleep, they singe the ground with their fiery breath, while walking in a circle, much as dogs do before laying down.

Night Furies are known to mate for life.


Night Furies are extremely loyal to their riders but it comes to a point that they become overprotective and suspicious of random strangers. Night Furies can "sense" when their rider needs them and then nothing can stop it from getting where it needs to be. Although Night Furies don't talk, their riders usually know what's on their mind and what they're feeling. Night Furies are extremely picky eaters, so look out! Flaming food flies fast! And even though Night Furies are one of the cutest, most loveable, most loyal dragons on this earth, that doesn't stop them from being terrifying on the battlefield.
