The Night Lights (Dart, Pouncer and Ruffrunner; while their species' title is not to be confused with the character Nightlight from the Guardians of Childhood book series or the NightLight pairing) are the three hybrid hatchlings of Toothless and the Light Fury, they appear in the end of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, while its Christmas special has them as three of its main supporting characters.

Their names and genders were revealed in the two app/online games, Rise of Berk and School of Dragons.


Because the trio are cross between the two closely related species of Furies, they're appearance is similar, as well as a merging of their parents'. The small roll of fins on their back, as well as the shape of their tail fins are of their Night Fury heritage, while the whilst lacking of a single spine from their Light Fury heritage. They're four ear-like appendages on the top of all three Night Light heads are black and white in coloring without a specific pattern. On the back of all four of their there are small fin-like "bumps" that look similar to both their mother's single back spine and the "bump fins" that she has on the back of her legs.

Each one of the three hatchlings have their own "pattern" of black and white color scheme, with two of them being black with some small white patches while only one of them is white with small black patches. As well as the fact that two of them have their father's green eyes while only one of them has their mother's blue eyes. The first Night Light, Dart, is black with the Light Fury's blue eyes and white patches on the tip of her nose, the ends of both her big ear-like appendages and paws, as well as having it under her jaw and on her belly. The second black Night Light, Ruffrunner, is Night Fury black with white Light Fury patches on the end of his four legs, back fin spins, belly, on the ends of the smaller ear-like appendages and visibly on the ends of his black tail fin. As well as having Toothless's green eyes. While the third Night Light, Pouncer, is Light Fury white, with the Night Fury's green eyes, his black patches are on the end of his tail, with some white, as well as having some patches of black on his big ear-like appendage and small back fin spins.


Like their merged fury heritage, their natural behavior falls somewhere in between the behavior of their parents', as they are simply to each others from Light Furies being of a sup-species of Night Furies. Because they are young, the trio are playful and curious by nature, but fiercely protective when danger is present. They don't appear to be scared of humans and even allow themselves to be touched by them.

The only female Night Light, Dart, seems to be the most curious and adventurous out of them all, having been slightly bored of the Hidden World and apparently has a desire to see the world outside of her underground home. Dart often acts as a leader for her brothers, who are both rambunctious and follow her without question.

Powers and Abilities

As dragons, the three young Night Lights have the power of flight and to breath fire. Like their combined appearances, the trio's plasma blasts are very similar to both of their parents' species, as both Night Lights and Light Furies share a similar amount of control, as well as timing of their plasma blasts' explosion. They also have their parents' cloaking ability, that allows them to temporarily blend in with their surroundings by heating up their mirror-like scale skin. While the three being the offspring result of two Strike class dragons, the Night Lights can fly at a great high rate of speed and spin in the air with no signs of slowing down; even as babies the trio have no problem of keeping up with their parents in flight.


As dragons, the Night Lights lacks the means to wield weapons properly and relies on their claws, teeth and the fire power of their plasma blasts.

Role in the Crossover

Because the dragons descended back into the Hidden World and they were born after this happened, Dart, Ruffrunner and Pouncer are often seen as accompanying their father outside once in while and their adult versions serve as the dragons for Hiccup’s generation, the Fandom’s main characters, or possibly the next generation of ROTBTFD.


Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III

Hiccup met the trio of Night Lights, properly, when he and Astrid brought their own children, Zephyr and Nuffink, to the Hidden World's gateway, so they could meet their fire breathing friends from their youth. Because they are a new species of dragons and the first (known) hybrid dragons, he chose to name them as a combination between the names of their parents' species, Night Fury and Light Fury. Since Hiccup is their father's rider and best friend and had helped their mother gain back her freedom, he would be an uncle, or possibly the godfather to the young trio.

In the Christmas special, Homecoming, which takes place before Haddock family visit the Hidden World, Toothless tells his children of his human friend Hiccup, in which in spired Dart to convince her brothers to seek Hiccup on New Berk. When they finally found Hiccup, Dart nearly walked up to him but her brothers kept her from doing so, and had managed to get themselves away from the stage when Hiccup noticed something peeping from under the trap door.

Jack Frost

Because Jack is sometimes depicted as their mother's rider, he would be an 'uncle' to the trio. Since they are animals, they'll be able to see the Winter Spirit, and since they're playful dragon 'children' he'll serve as a playmate and protector for them as well. There is a chance that Jack's ice powers would cause the three young dragons to mistake him for an ice breathing dragon, like a Bewilderbeast or a Snow Wraith.

The fact that Jack's previous name was Nightlight (in the Guardians of Childhood book series) is a source of amusement for some fans.

Merida DunBroch

Because Merida is sometimes placed as their mother's rider, she would be an aunt to the trio. As well as the three Night Lights reminding Merida of her little triplet brother, for being a group of three siblings that were born on the same day.

Rapunzel Corona

Because of the dragons natural curiosity of humans, they would be fascinated by Rapunzel’s magical capapabilities while Rapunzel would take to them fondly due to their ‘adorableness.’


Toothless is the trio's father and the one that they inherited their Night Fury side from, while their Light Fury heritage came from their mother. One of the black and white Night Lights and the only white and black Night Light of the trio has their father's green eyes.

Light Fury

The unnamed Light Fury is the trio's mother and the one that they inherited their Light Fury side from, while their Night Fury heritage came from their father. One of the two black and white Night Lights has their mother's blue eyes.

Astrid Hofferson

Astrid met the trio of Night Lights when she and Hiccup brought their own children, Zephyr and Nuffink, to the Hidden World's gateway, so they could meet their fire breathing friends from their youth. Since Astrid is friends with their father and was part of the battle that allowed Hiccup and Toothless to save their mother, she would be an aunt to the trio.

Queen Elsa

Because Elsa is sometimes placed as their mother's rider, she would be an aunt to the trio. There is a chance that Elsa's ice powers would remain the three young dragons or would have them view Elsa as a ice-fire breathing dragon, like a Bewilderbeast or a Snow Wraith.


Stormfly being friends with their father and their mother accepting other kinds of dragons, as well as Stormfly flying closely to the trio, it's possible that she is an aunt to them.

Zephyr and Nuffink Haddock


Zephyr and Nuffink are the daughter and son of their father's rider, Hiccup. They are also the first humans - in addition to Hiccup and Astrid - that the young dragons ever met, just as the three Night Lights are the first dragons that Zephyr and Nuffink ever met. On top of this, the group of five appear to be close in age, or at least in similar or the same developmental stage. As Nuffink flew on Toothless's back with Hiccup while staying close to their parents' sides, the Night Lights flew close towards Nuffink a few times. The white Night Light, Pouncer, seemed particularly curious about him, playfully grabbing Nuffink's hand when he reached towards it. Zephyr might have gotten a similar experience with them during her turn flying on Toothless with Hiccup.

Had the dragons remained with the Hairy Hooligan Tribe in the world of man, or had the vikings successfully immigrated to the Hidden World, there is a chance that two of the three dragons might have ended up as Zephyr and Nuffink's dragons. Because the mostly white Night Light directly interacted with Nuffink by reaching for him, many believe that the two might have bonded in that moment and that the white Night Light is already his dragon. Before their genders and names were revealed, however, fans had believed that the white and black Night Light's coloring had indicates that Pouncer's gender could have been female - like the Light Fury - and that 'she' would instead bond with Zephyr as a result. While Zephyr being a girl version of Hiccup and the color of her blue eyes, has some depicting one of the two black Night Lights, mainly the blue eyed one, Dart, as her dragon friend instead; as well as the fact that some had used their eye colors to indicate their possible genders.
