      As an extreme nerd of HTTYD I don’t think Matpat has any right to rant about it like this. There are so many shows and other canon material he is missing out on. Plus dragons are not lizards. There is such a thing as intelligence. Sure there are dragons that don’t have brains that are particularly smart like Terrible Terrors, but there are some species that are just as intelligent as humans like the Night Fury (the dragon with the highest known intellect) and the Skrill.

        Weeeeeeeell, you know that in the Christmas movie, Hiccup makes a tail that toothless can control and later he destroys it, to use the controlled one

          If its animal cruelty, than why did toothless NOT like the auto tail in the gift of the night fury? In the 3rd one, Hiccup Technically said he didnt have a reason to make the first one, but on the second one YES because he is on a date!

          Understand Now?

                          In the Movie the dragons have a closer intelligence level to wild big cats not so much lizards, so using irl lizards isn't as of a good Idea as comparing them to say, A panther or tiger or something similar.
                          I think It would be Super Cool if you did a remake of this theory using a different animal instead.

                                Dragons and lizards have different brains. How else could they be controlled my the red death. But that would be funny to see a lizard trying too steal food LOL

                                    This would be a good point except that if you dig into the little Facts about how to train your Dragon you discover that a) the sum species of dragon are much smarter than humans and b) they make it vary Clear that dragons are not reptiles all so you sed lizards that are also reptiles Of reptiles that are also lizards

                                      Well... Why did You assumed that dragons are lizards? They may be simillar in looks, but it seems they are intelligent... and have 6 limbs (4 legs + 2 wings), have You ever seen 6-limb reptiles? So maybe... just maybe... those dragons are not lizards? So perhaps they can be trained?

                                                      I have a book "How to train your dragon" years before first movie ever existed. Story was completely different. There are no "war" with dragons. There was a Viking clan, which "train" dragons for generations. The process was: 1. Around 12-14 (don't remember correctly), you become a man a must get a dragon.
                                                      2. Group of "future mans" sent to dragon nest to stole a dragon eggs. (Type of dragon u get determined your future clan status much).
                                                      3. Hatch an egg, newborn dragon will imprint u as a parent. Or steal an infant.
                                                      4. Train your dragon through scream, beating ect. (Clan motto - dragons are dumb, understands only fear & power).
                                                      5. After a year, finish a trial to prove your accomplishment. Became a full-pleged clan warrior. Or failed miserably & get exiled to wilderness with your dragon-failure. Thats it.
                                                      Dragon in clan mostly used as hunting dogs. Aslo as food and leather if dragon outgrown trainer of don't behave (didn't happen much, it was only mentioned in the book).
                                                      Note: Dragons are intelligent, they have their own language, etiquette ect. They are also egoistic assholes, all of them, no exceptions. They annoyed by humans, but they didn't want to be beaten or killed (if they escaped, they became an easy prey to any wild dragon). Most of clan dragons is no larger as a horse. Clan dragons often bully each other.
                                                      Hiccup is a chief son, and future next chief. He was also a skinny geek with glasses. He was bullied by other kids because he was a geek, helping mother to washing, cleaning, cooking. He also have a fatty friend. Hiccup noticed how fathers dragons talk to each other and learned that language.
                                                      On nest-raid he try to steal a garden dragon egg, but failed miserably. While escaping from ravaged dragons (all group), Hiccup grabs the first infant he sees. Later he & his father discovered that that dragon was size as cat, light green & toothless. Hiccup friend is lied that is normal for Legend Sky Ruler Dragon & Hiccup don't get punished. Hiccup decided that he was train Toothless by talking, bargain & love.
                                                      Toothless was an asshole, he shit in house, on Hiccup, he destroy stuff ect. He only start to play along, when he was bullied & injured by other clan dragons. He was learn to fly, month before trial. Then he started a fight on trials & get everyone exiled.
                                                      Teenagers was saved by 2 elder dragons event & got restored as clan warriors.
                                                      I put away some details, read the book its good. Book events= 1 movie event, 2-3 movie is completely AU.

                                                            Mkay but dragons are obviously bigger and more developed with wings so we can assume they would be smarter. But then they would only be more careful around us so that would make it harder but possible. I want a part 2 considering more intellectualy capable dragons with developed brains and compassion.

It’s been said before but he was doing what his whole society was doing. They hunted dragons. The movie made dragons out to be more like dogs. They fetched, rolled over, and showed emotions. But my biggest problem with your theory is that you think he built the wing to only be controlled by him to keep Toothless helpless and his pet. Did it ever occur to you that the technology wasn’t around in the first movie to make it an independently operated piece of equipment? Even in the third one he had to build a prototype and test it and fix the problems. It was a mutually beneficial relationship until he realized it was no longer beneficial to the dragons. So he did was needed to be done so they could leave. And *spoiler alert* years later when he goes to visit Toothless, it was a happy reunion and they were able to reconnect then go their separate ways. Your theory is wrong.

                                                                                Dragons in the book are much more sapient.
                                                                                And you forgot that dragons in the movie might be more evolved, showing characteristics associated with birds. They might not have cat level social abilities but they should at least have the IQ of a hawk.

How do we know a dragons brain in just like a lizards or snakes ect brain? Yes they call dragons reptiles but dragons also have the ability to breath and shoot fire or in toothes case turn in invisible using lightning. Again I agree to some extent but we also have to take into account that dragons could be a mix of so may other species. Idk just a thought

They are very different from the films, except the names and that they are also about dragons and vikings. They are excellent and although they do have reptiles with mammal brains (we assume, following this video) you will find the ethical problems you talk about here addressed; in fact, they are key to the whole series.
