Gobber the Belch

Gobber the Belch - VikingsGobber the Belch is a Viking known for his boisterous bellow and his unwavering bravery. During his glory days as a warrior, Gobber displayed remarkable courage in the fight against Berk’s dragon invaders, losing both his left leg and most of his right arm in battle. With the loss of his limbs, he had to retire from the battlefield and take on a position as the village blacksmith, where his skills in weapon making and forging were unparalleled. He was known for designing a weaponized hand for himself and for making Hiccup’s prosthetic leg.

Outside of the smithy, Gobber trains young Vikings to defend themselves and Berk from dragons. Using his extensive experiences in battle, his students learn how to locate a dragon’s blind spot, how to calculate the number of fire balls a dragon can shoot before it runs out, and how to think like a dragon. Until Hiccup met Toothless, Gobber was Berk’s resident dragon expert.

Gobber is a loyal companion and is willing to do anything for his village, even if it means risking his own life. Whether it’s giving advice or storming into battle, Gobber is not only a fearless Viking, but a devoted friend. You can find him in Berk or around the School of Dragons, so stop by and say hello!
