      Um, you have to consider that A: These are supposed wild animals, warring on a tough, hardened tribe so Hiccup doesn't know how he's supposed to treat creatures. Also, in Gift of the Night fury, Hiccup does give him an independent tail, but Toothless declines it, because he wants to be together. It's only when he has something else--A mate, the Lightfury-- that he wants to, because it is then and only then does Toothless actually have something else besides freindship with Hiccup. His instincts then take over. You're also forgetting that this is a DRAGON, not just a lizard or snake. In fact, most of the dragon models were based of mammals, birds and insects. For example, Toothless was based off horses, cats, and dogs.

          I think the biggest question should be how did the vikings not die from altitude sickness

                                I’ve commented on this when it came out, but I’m doing it again to help you, Matpat, with the rage of HTTYD fans such as myself. You’re welcome.

                                I was thinking you should make another HTTYD theory to appease us. This is the only time my theory sense has ever went off. You see, in the TV shows and movies where the Hiccup, the dragon riders, and sometimes other people would fall from heights that would certainly kill you. But the dragons would catch them, I feel like they would still die. Sometimes bye the arms. Yes, they would use their sharp claws and grab people falling from heights hundreds of feet up in their air bye the arms. The arms! Shouldn’t that not only kill you but also rip your arms off. I can see the thumbnail already: Hiccup should be DEAD.
                                I don’t think Matpat will actually see this, so please help me get this to him by liking, putting this in his newest videos. Please help me out. I would really like it if he did this theory. I just hope he does more research on it than this absolute lie of a theory.

                                    I agree with you except reptiles are actually smart but not to solve puzzles but rather in survival saltwater crocodiles and any other reptile move from hot to cold places and snakes are actually smart because if they weren’t smart they couldn’t think about escaping

                                          Can you really fault Hiccup for not trusting the Dragon. These are wild animals after all, and considering the fact that the alternative is Killing them, there is an argument to say this is better. And these safety measures aren't really malicious, just for safety purposes, as the dragon might fly you somewhere you don't want to go. Again, Hiccup was raised under a society that kills dragons on sight, so trust isn't really there. Vikings are brutal, and this is actually within what you could probably expect for them.(I'm not an expert though, so I might be wrong about that)

                                          Another point: Maybe Dragons have more complex brains than other reptiles, it doesn't seem that farfetched to me

                                          Not to say this isn't a decent theory though, just that there are counter arguments to the points you made

                                                            This fucking theory perfectly encapsulates why somany people dislike and disregard your content. It's just sheer nonsense and rambling for ten minutes about something not set within the rules of the narrative. Honestly somtimes l wonder wether you've actually watched the film's you're theorising or wether you've just had an unmotivated script writer lazily conjure up infomation from wiki.
                                                            And now look l understand why you made this theory which was to capitalize on the new movie but seriously? It really just shows your disingenuous and how you care more about money rather than making well thought out content for fans

Hiccup shot down the night fury to impress Berk. When he found toothless on the ground he regretted his decision and tried to free him. He then realized toothless couldn't fly and tried to fix it but in the process hiccup and toothless slowly grew a friendship. In the Christmas special (that took place before the second movie aka hiccups growth spurt) he made a tail so that toothless can fly freely on his own. Toothless didn't want that and would rather have his friend be with him flying. In the third movie there was a reason for toothless to have the ability to fly on his own. Everyone else didn't have to go through the same process hiccup did to train their dragon they simply gained their trust. There is a book of dragons special that talks about it.
