Gift of the Night Fury is definitely the best short in my opinion, although by any means I'm not insulting the others. I adore the tidbits of each characters we get. Stoick being a cheerful father (asking for Hiccup's helmet to give him gifts), Astrid being supportive, sarcastic, and a delightfully almost goofy side we didn't get to see much in the first movie (yaknog, the exploding eggs, et cetera), but centering right back down to the heart of the movie, Hiccup and Toothless.

I'm so glad in the second movie, that they are practicing self flight for Toothless because as much as the ending of the short warmed me like a sip of hot chocolate, I thought getting rid of the ability for Toothless to fly on his own was a bit silly. I completely adore that Toothless prefers to fly connected with Hiccup, because he's essentially saying that even though he would vulnerable, he trusts Hiccup to have his back. That's so wonderful.... But, oh dear is the idea that Toothless can fly without Hiccup dead useful.


Excuse my rambles dear.

Given that I hardly ever see any mention of this short, I think it's really underrated. Too many Christmas specials in already established franchises end up being cheesy if not downright lame, but this short avoids that. It succeeds by telling a good story that would work in any setting and then giving it a holiday backdrop rather than making the holiday the driving force of everything. I also prefer the characterizations here to what we ended up seeing in the TV series.
Come death. Come suffering. I will not live in fear. In this fleeting life where time escapes us, the path of least resistance is a slow quiet death. I'd rather burn out than fade away.

Apart from the obvious baby dragons though, the ending was especially lovely.

I would be lying if I said I didn't cry like a baby but oh toothless I just wanted to hug him the adorable big baby boo I mean oh gosh feels it was such a powerful gesture and just made the relationship that much more AWH YOU GUYS if you know what I mean

.. and yes that is my professional review

GotNF was....awesome! The best holiday/short I have ever seen! The fact that Toothless doesn't want to be free, and instead wants to need Hiccup is soooooo sweet!

With GotNF DreamWorks managed it to include a story as good as the original movie. That is pretty impressive. I've never seen a short for a movie with such an original and exiting story.

mystery dragon, pic drawn by night fury fire. Thank you
:)

For me, it was the expression on toothless' face when he realized hiccup made a new tail fin for him so he could fly by himself again.

And the end where toothless destroys the new tail fin in front of hiccup, saying to him, with his expression, I want you with me.
Dragons, need I say more.

Hiccup, chief of berc, dragon master.
Toothless, alpha dragon.
You and me bud we can do this, as one.
It's just a zipple misunderstanding
