Nuffink Haddock is Hiccup and Astrid Haddock's son, who appears, along with his older sister, at the end of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.

Appearance

Nuffink deeply resembles both of his parents, as he has his father's green hazel eyes and his mother's light blond hair. As well as strongly looking like a child version of Hiccup, with his body form that is thin and "linky", like Hiccup's was as both a child and as a young teenager, while having shaggy blond hair that has a few braids in the back of it; that look similar to the ones that Hiccup had in his hair from his younger adult years. Nuffink's smile is also similar to Hiccup's and his face looks closely like his father's. The three teeth that hang on his necklace might have been from dragons or any other kind of animal, since Nuffink was born and raised in a world that had forgotten the dragons while the Berkians keep their existence a guarded secret. Nuffink's shirt is of a light tan color with long sleeves that have decorative lining on the ends of both sleeves and on the caller and hem of it. Along with having a brown belt with a rock shaped Night Fury head (a sliver bird skull in concept art of him) as its belt-buckle, that Nuffink uses it to carry his colorful hit toy sword on.

Personality

Even though Nuffink is raised by two ex-dragon riders, he was afraid of dragons, before being shown how calm and gentle they can be, and as he hide from Toothless, and had tried to do so by pulling his mother's white furred cloak over his head, along with covering his eyes and looking away while waiting for the dragon to come to him and his sister, indicates that there is a shy and timid side to the young Haddock. Unless his timidity and shyness is simply due to his young age or for being temporally scared of Toothless. As Nuffink rides with his father on Toothless's back and is shown to have loved every second of his time in the air with them, implies that he has father's love for adrenaline.

The toy sword that Nuffink is seen carrying on his belt indicates that he has his mother's adventurous spirit and turbulent side, which has him as a young brash adventurer, as well as the rest of Nuffink's personality being not so different from Astrid's (in which has been conformed in the official art book of the third film and the commentary from the film's makers).

Powers and Abilities

Nuffink possesses no special or magical abilities, making him a normal, everyday human boy. As the Haddock family sailed closer to the Hidden World, however, was Nuffink seen pushing down a wooden "leaver" on their ship, that is probably connected to the ship's anchor, after receiving a nod from Hiccup implies, that before or during their family voyage, Nuffink may have been taught a few things about sailing. Since the Hooligan Tribe have to relay on boats for travel, again, after the dragons left their world of man. While the toy sword he carries on his belt and is the son of two Viking warriors, indicates that he might have been taught a few basics of how to handle a sword so he could one day use a real one; for when he is old enough to.

Weapons

Nuffink is seen carrying a toy sword, with a colorful hilt of lime green parts and is striped with orange and purple on his belt, and him being the son of two Vikings that have seen their fair share of battle in their youth, as well as the young Haddock inheriting both of his adventurous and turbulent sides from Astrid, could mean that Nuffink might one day learn how to use a real sword, a knife, or any other kind of weapon, when he's older.

Role in the Crossover

Because of the minor role he plays in the third film, Nuffink and his older sister may not get as much development as other characters. If writers were to give the Haddock siblings focus in any way, it would most likely be limited to the number of children who believe in the Guardians and give them strength in their beliefs.

In many crossovers, his appearance is sometimes changed in order for him to resemble whoever serves as his mother in pairings that involves around Hiccup. Like Mericcup, Hiccelsa and Hiccunzel.

Relationships

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III

https://lily--121.tumblr.com/post/183073316399/and-here-is-the-new-sketch-hiccup-with-his-son

Hiccup is Nuffink's father. Nuffink was first seen being carried in his father's arms, as the Haddock family sailed to the Hidden World. During the family's flight with their dragons, after Hiccup had helped Nuffink and his older sister bond with Toothless, Nuffink flew with his father on the Night Fury' back, where he gave his son the time of his life while showing him the wonder of dragons in the air. Before placing Nuffink on Stormfly's back with Astrid and Zephyr, who later joined him on Toothless' back, as Hiccup makes sure that his children have a chance to ride both of the two dragons that he and Astrid rode on during their many adventures and battles they had in their youth.

Jack Frost

Nuffink would have plenty of reasons to be able to see Jack Frost; being a child who saw his first dragon during a time when their existence was beginning to fade from the world, being a viking child who has likely heard stories of Jokul Frosti (the mythical Viking figure that Jack is sometimes featured as in the Viking AU), and being Hiccup's child, especially since Hiccup himself usually is friends with Jack in the RotBTD fandom. Since Nuffink is the more boisterous of the two children, Jack would most likely encourage his more adventurous and reckless tendencies while acting as the Haddock children's protector. He'd be especially eager to introduce Nuffink to all manner of magical creatures, dragons included, and encourage them to get along.

Jack would act as a Guardian for Nuffink in either case, but if he knows Hiccup and Astrid beforehand he may have a special soft spot for Nuffink and his sister.

Merida DunBroch

Because Nuffink has Astrid's adventurous, turbulent side and carries around a toy sword, Merida would take a shine to the youngest Haddock.

Rapunzel Corona

Since Nuffink has blond hair and green eyes like Rapunzel, fans of the Hiccunzel pairing could have her taking Astrid's place as Nuffink's mother. In a similar way that fans have Jack take Flynn's place as Rapunzel's love interest and husband, as well as the two taking both of Agnarr and Iduna's places so they could have Jack and Rapunzel as Elsa and Anna's parents, for the popular Frozen Tangled Guardians EU.

Toothless

Toothless is the first dragon that Nuffink had met and he was scared of the Night Fury at first, due to the dragon approaching his father in a threatening and defective way until he recognized him. Because of Toothless' first impression, Nuffink and his sister were nervous about approaching the dragon and holding their hands until to him, as he covered his eyes and looked away from dragon while waiting for the Night Fury to come to them. The moment Toothless' snout made contact with their hands, any fears that the siblings first had of the dragon disappeared; and where replaced with amazement. As he flew on Toothless' with his father, giving the youngest Haddock his first ever experience of riding on the back of a dragon, the Night Fury's mate and their hatchlings close to them, until Hiccup placed the youngest Haddock on the Deadly Nadder's back with his mother while Zephyr had a turn of flying with their father; and possibly with the family of Furies.

Being the son of Toothless' friend and former rider, Hiccup would have told Nuffink, as well as Zephyr, stories of the many adventures they had together. As well as the events of how they met on Berk and how they became newly crowned leaders on the same day, before sharing the events that led to the tribe leaving Berk and starting anew on New Berk while their dragons descended into the Hidden World.

Astrid Haddock

Astrid is Nuffink's mother. As the Haddock family sailed closer to the Hidden world, Hiccup placed Nuffink in her arms, and while Hiccup was calming helping Toothless to recognize him, as it has been years since they last saw each other, Astrid kept Nuffink and his older sister, Zephyr, close to her side and shielded them from the dragon until the Night Fury had calmed down and became playful towards them. After flying with his father for a bit on Toothless, Hiccup placed Nuffink on Stormfly's back with Astrid, while Zephyr had a turn of flying with their father on the Night Fury.

Nuffink's has his mother's blond hair and both of her adventurous and turbulent sides, even though his timid and shy nature, whenever he is scared, hides it. Nuffink's toy sword could mean that Astrid might have began his fighting training or had taught him a few sword wielding techniques, that would help Nuffink for when he is old enough to use a real sword, or knife.

Light Fury

The Light Fury and her hatchlings kept close to Toothless' and had gotten close to Nuffink a few times, Zephyr might have been given the same kind of experience with the Light Fury and the young trio during her turn to fly with Hiccup on the Night Fury's back.

Night Lights

https://frejaboisen.tumblr.com/post/183321914491/best-cousins

The Night Light hatchlings are some of the first dragons that Nuffink and his sister had ever seen, the rest of dragon kind having chosen to return to the Hidden World before the two of them were born. As he flew with Hiccup on Toothless' back, the young Night Lights kept close to their parents and displayed curiosity towards Nuffink and his sister; when Nuffink reached out towards the white Night Light, Pouncer, the young dragon reciprocated by reaching out with its paw and touching his hand. That moment Nuffink had with the white Night Light led many to believe that the two might have bonded similarly to Hiccup and Toothless. Zephyr wasn't shown having a similar experience, and is said to be the more timid of the two siblings. However, many fans still believe she had a similar moment off screen.

Had the dragons remained with Hairy Hooligan Tribe in the world of man, or had the people of Berk successfully immigrated to the Hidden World, there is a chance that one of the three dragons would have become Nuffink's dragon partner. It's possible he might have bonded with a Deadly Nadder, like his mother, or an entirely different dragon. The moment that Nuffink shared with Pouncer, however, has most fans depicting the white Night Light as Nuffink's dragon. Still, there are other fans who had assumed based on coloring that both of the black Night Lights are Male and the white could have been a female (before only one of the two black Night Lights, Dart, was revealed to be a female while the other two young dragons are males), and that Nuffink and Zephyr would bond with the dragons matching their own genders.

Stormfly

After Nuffink fly on Toothless' back with Hiccup and it became Zephyr's turn to fly with them, Nuffink was placed on Stormfly's back with Astrid, so he could continue their family flight with his mother and her dragon.

Being the son of Stormfly's friend and former rider, Astrid would have told Nuffink, as well as Zephyr, stories of the many adventures they had together. As well as the events of how they met and they became friends, before sharing the events that led to the tribe leaving Berk and starting anew on New Berk while Stormfly and the rest of their dragons descended into the Hidden World.

Queen Elsa

Since Nuffink has blond hair like Elsa, fans of the Hiccelsa pairing could have her taking Astrid's place as Nuffink's mother. In a similar way that fans have Jack take Flynn's place as Rapunzel's love interest and husband, as well as the two taking both of Agnarr and Iduna's places so they could have Jack and Rapunzel as Elsa and Anna's parents, for the popular Frozen Tangled Guardians EU. Since a few OCs of Hiccup and Elsa's son, that were "fan-created" before the release of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, has him with blond hair and green eyes, like Nuffink's are.

Stoick the Vast

http://mel-wah.tumblr.com/post/183117693276/best-grandad

Even though Stoick had died long before the events that had led to both Hiccup and Astrid's wedding and the birth of his two grandchildren, Nuffink and Zephyr would have been told about their grandfather from the people that knew him. In both legacy and the kind of man he was. If Stoick didn't die in the second film and was to be given the chance to meet and watch the two grow, he would no doubt love them with all his heart and would tell them stories of what their father was like as both a child and teenager, legends and the tribe's history, along with a few other stories that they would enjoy.

Sometime after the realis of the second film and long before the third film was realest and Nuffink made his appearance at the end of it, with his older sister, however, fans had assumed that Hiccup and Astrid would have named their son after Stoick. Although most fan theories of Stoick II has him with brown hair and looking closely like his grandfather.

Ruffnut and Tuffnut Thorston

https://ch-al-ev-arts.tumblr.com/post/183317767656/ruffnut-hi-nuff-weve-got-something-for-you

The "uff" in Nuffink's name is similar to the "uff"s that are in Ruffnut, Tuffnut and a few of their relatives' names, as well as the twins wearing dragon teeth necklaces that look a bit like the ones that Nuffink has on his necklace. Because of this, a few believe that the youngest Haddock might have need named after someone from the Thorston family, unless the "uff" in his name is just a coincidence, as well as the possibility of the twins taking a shine to the young Haddock children and beings the ones that have given Nuffink his necklace.

Since the twins are friends of Nuffink's parents, Ruffnut and Tuffnut, along with their other friends, would be an uncle and aunt to Nuffink and his older sister. The twins would tell the young Haddocks stories of their battles, adventures and possibly some of their past pranks; as well as to tell them the importins of the bond between siblings.

Valka

Even though Valka and Nuffink's relationship wasn't seen or mentioned, as well as her relationship with Zephyr, Valka's love for her family would no doubt have her loving and caring for Nuffink as any grandmother would love her grandchild. She would tell Nuffink, as well as Zephyr, her time in the Dragon's Hide with Cloudjumper, the Bewilderbeast and the rest of its dragons before she and Hiccup found each other.

Pitch Black

Because he is the son of one of the four main members of the Big Four, Pitch would most likely target Nuffink and his older sister. If Pitch retains any of his book characterization he may attempt to transform Nuffink into a Fearling Prince both to suit his own purposes and to hurt Hiccup.

Eret

Even though Eret and Nuffink's relationship wasn't seen or mentioned, as well as his relationship with Zephyr, Eret's friendship with their parents would no doubt have him as an uncle-like figure to the two. Because Nuffink takes after his mother and would probably become a grounded and typical Viking when he's older, while Zephyr is more like their father, there is chance that the youngest Haddock would take a big shine to his Uncle Eret.

Snotlout Jorgenson

https://justcallmecornflake.tumblr.com/post/184856573939/snotlout-would-totally-be-on-a-mission-to-become

Even though Snotlout and Nuffink's relationship wasn't seen or mentioned, as well as his relationship with Zephyr, Snotlout's friendship with their parents would no doubt have him as an uncle-like figure to the two. Especially if it's acknowledged that Snotlout is Hiccup's cousin, like in the books.
