Toothless

the unholy offspring of lightning and death itself

in a view to a skrill pt 2 toothless was shown to still be a little bit quicker than the skrill and that was with hiccup riding him. now in a hypothetical situation how fast would toothless be able to fly alone because i would guess a lot faster since he is used to flying with a person on him.

I don't know if anybody knows for sure, but I believe that Toothless' top speed is estimated to be somewhere between 200 and 300 miles per hour. Probably closer to 200. It's definitely possible seeing that birds of prey can reach 200+ miles per hour in a dive.

The Toothless wiki states:
Speed
 
The Art of How To Train Your Dragon book notes that he can fly over one hundred miles per hour. He keeps up with Hiccup easily in a free fall, and humans reach terminal velocity at around one hundred and fifty miles per hour.
In the series though, his speed sometimes gets mixed up. This wiki mentions this:
Trivia
 
In the intro of the TV series, Toothless and Hiccup are shown to have a sonic shock cone, implying they broke the Sound Barrier. This contradicts the accepted three-hundred to four hundred miles per hour top speed for a Night-Fury, as the Sound Barrier at room temperature is seven-hundred and sixty-one miles per hour.
On land though, Toothless seems to be again extremely fast. He can keep up (and is possibly faster than) the Speed Stringers who have have a speed rating of 13.
I challenge you to be lazier than me!

I was thinking it would be the baseball effect. When a person is next to bat normally they put a ten pound donut on there bat so when they take it off they bat faster. Maybe toothless has become much faster by having hiccup and the saddle on him

As far as the show intro goes: they do show Toothless with an effect of breaking the sound barrier, but I think it's just an effect to make it look cooler. The speed at which he is flying in the intro is nowhere near the actual sound barrier.

A while ago I have calculated that his speed in a free fall could theoretically pass the speed of sound in normal air pressure (of course without Hiccup).

I will see if I could find the data and formula for it.

No, I'm serious....stop it..

I think the animators just animate Toothless at any speed they want so the animate "works".

Oh, i'm blabbing again, hard to explain.

Fast, i suppose? :)
