HTTYD Canon

In this thread I am hoping to get a clear and complete clarification of what is and what isn't officially canon in the HTTYD franchise, for myself and everyone else. (It would be good if the moderators could perhaps make this into a sticky thread within the relevant section of the forum.)

From the information that I know and what other people have told me, this seems to be what is officially canon:

First and foremost, the main film trilogy

The TV series (Riders and Defenders of Berk, Race to the Edge)

The comics

The short films

School of Dragons


This is what apparently isn't canon:

Almost all of the games (except from School of Dragons)

The HTTYD Live Spectacular


That's all I can think of at the moment. Please feel free to add anything else if you can. :)

Books are like dragons... if we do not believe in them, and read them, they will cease to exist.
How then will we learn the language and understand the stories of the dear dead ghosts of the past?

Thanks! :) I will edit the first post of the thread to include that.

I agree. School of Dragons is... semi-canon? If it can be called that? There are a few canon elements, and a few that are definitely not canon. AFAIK, it doesn't add anything to main canon, but stays true to it for the most part. Although the ship battling stuff was berzerkers and outcasts last time I checked.

Hmmm... I wish there was a more clear-cut answer. For now, I'll assume that it's canon. :)

I'm guessing that the Live Spectacular isn't canon? (Since the new dragon species which appeared, such as the Egg Biter, have only been in Rise of Berk, which is not canon.)

I think the Live Spectacular is an AU. So not canon, but it takes elements from canon and adds its own spin on it
