Hiccunzel is the name of the pairing between Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III from How to Train Your Dragon (2010) and Rapunzel Corona from Tangled (2010). It is not as popular as Jackunzel and Mericcup, however it does have a huge fanbase of art and fanfiction. Hiccunzel is considered to be one of the oldest crossover ships in the fandom. Both Tangled and How to Train Your Dragon came out in 2010 --two years before the Big Four was created.

Relationship Overview

Within the Big Four, Rapunzel and Hiccup have a lot of things in common. While Jack and Merida tend to be more fiery, Rapunzel and Hiccup are calmer and rely more on their intelligence than a special ability or power. Rapunzel lost her long, golden blonde hair while Hiccup lost his leg --just like Toothless lost his fin. They also appeared to be very jumpy. Hiccup is good at sketching and drawing while Rapunzel likes painting. They're both bookworms who enjoy reading for fun (along with the Tangled TV series having Rapunzel befriending and training a young dragon with help from a book on them), they are the only child of their families and got separated from their mothers when they were just babies, before reuniting with them years later. They also had troubles with their leadership role fathers, until they were able to sort out with them. As for their mothers, Hiccup and Rapunzel are shown to be very close to them, as Valka and Arianna are/were adventurous like them.

They're both animal lovers (fans have pointed out the parallels between Hiccup's interactions with Toothless and Rapunzel's interactions with Maximus and Pascal) and generally kind-hearted individuals. In the Hogwarts AU, Hiccup and Rapunzel are both interchangeable between Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw, because they both have characteristics that could suit both houses.

In their follow-up TV shows that fills in the gasps between their first and second films (even though Rapunzel's "second" film was a short), the two have been shown to turn a few of their enemies into friends. The TV shows also showcased Hiccup and Rapunzel's creative talents, as Hiccup's blacksmithing skills has made him a still inventor and Rapunzel has tried her own hand at inventing on more than one occasion. In fact her inventor, alchemy friend, Varian is similar to Hiccup in his own unique ways. Just as Cassandra is a little similar to Astrid and a few other female warriors that Hiccup has befriended.
