Hookfang falls under the Monstrous Nightmare species, which are known to be some of the most ferocious and aggressive dragons that the Vikings have ever seen. In the Journal of Dragons, the Monstrous Nightmares are classified in the Stoker Class. A Monstrous Nightmare’s key talent is to ‘Fire Burst’, allowing them to set their entire body on fire. The Monstrous Nightmares have a lot of really high leveled features, such as a high attack speed, flight speed, firepower, shot limit, and armor. 

This creature is usually either a purple or scarlet in color with snake-like features. Sly and slippery, Hookfang also uses its claw-tipped wings to crawl along the ground. Their lizard like appearance sets them off to appear like rodents of the dragon world. However, these feisty heated dragon species burn anything that comes to sight. Their intimidating glowing eyes strike fear to those who come near. 

Hookfang was kept as a prisoner during dragon training and was ranked as the most desired dragon to kill. Initially, Hiccup tried connecting with Hookfang, but instead, Hookfang ends up attacking Hiccup after being spooked by Vikings. Before the battle with the Red Death, Hiccup tries to unite the young Vikings and dragons. He brings Snotlout close to Hookfang and touches him by the nostrils. This sense of touch calms down Hookfang and is the establishing point of Hookfang’s relationship to Snotlout.
