After the Armorwing appears, Hiccup notices a Dragon Eye lens on its back. The dragons bond and fly away, allowing the riders to return home. DreamWorks Dragons: Riders of Berk picks up where the feature film left off. The show is great entertainment for the whole family. Help comes from an unlikely source when Dagur appears and guides Hiccup and Toothless to his hideout, where he explains that he has been living in exile since leaving the hunters and claims to be reformed. Though the Hunters take the island, the riders manage to drive them off with the help of Mala and the Gronkles living on the Edge are recruited to safely return the Eruptodon home.
He later double-crosses Dagur returning the Dragon Eye to Hiccup and saving both of them in the process. . Hiccup is captured by Ryker and Dagur but is rescued by Barf and Belch who in turn are rescued from drowning by the twins, repaying the debt and returning everything to normal. The Viking teenagers must bring the twins back together to control their dragon and avoid provoking Dagur to war. This, however, turns out to be a trap by Krogan and the Hunters, who capture Windshear and demand the gem on Heather's belt, a lens for the Dragon Eye, in exchange for her life. Determined to win back Dark Deep for the Gronckles, Fishlegs allows Snotlout to train him in fighting dirty behind Hiccup's back in order to beat the Quaken and drive it off, but quickly find themselves outmatched once they confront it directly. After the twins throw everyone in the 'dungeon' they realise they need the other riders to stop the island becoming a pile of ash.
Though they realize that they won't have enough time to save them all, the Dramillions learn the technique to destroy the shackles themselves and are able to free each other. They investigate only to be imprisoned by a dragon-worshiping tribe called the Defenders of the Wing led by Queen Mala, who believes them to be hunters for their subjugation of dragons. A trade takes place, but Gustav decides to stay with Dagur. However, he states that they must compete against each other, as only one can prevail. Stoick and Astrid try to convince Hiccup that the Singetails must also be treated as the enemy and potentially sacrificed for their victory, but Hiccup remains firm on their innocence and is left lost while the rest of Berk prepares for war. Stoick momentarily wakes up to help him make the right choice. Dagur leads Viggo's fleet away and swears to Heather that he will return to answer her questions, leaving his worried sister behind.
The four attempt to work together, but their efforts are hindered by Stoick and Spitelout's constant arguing, and their sons are left to reluctantly take their father's side. Could it be she is working for Alvin and the Outcasts willingly or under duress? After finding her, the riders scour the beach and the wreck of the Reaper for clues on their whereabouts, but only find a new lens for the Dragon Eye that works with a Changewing's acid. Though highly reluctant, Hiccup works together with Dagur to cure Toothless but the two are captured and Dagur appears to abandon Hiccup, but later comes back riding Toothless to save him. The series begins where the first movie leaves off, featuring 15—16 year old characters. Meanwhile, Hiccup and Snotlout travel to Wingmaiden Island to escort Atali to the meeting, where Atali leaves her second-in-command, Minden, in charge of the island, though Minden is upset at not being allowed to attend the meeting as well.
Using the baby Razorwhips, the Wingmaidens defeat Flyers. At the same time, Gobber appears and warns Hiccup of an unpleasant change in Stoick back on Berk that is currently driving everyone crazy. Hiccup and Fishlegs develop a mixture of Deathsong amber and Gronkle Iron to stop the lava bursts, but while gathering materials, Hiccup and Astrid discover an older Garff mortally wounded, hinting that the Hunters, who are now led by the masked man who tried to abduct Hiccup and has the ability to control dragons, are continuing activity. Soon enough Hookfang is in deep trouble as his flame goes out, so it's a Race to Fireworm Island to help restore Hookfang's flame before it is too late. One by one the riders cure their dragons using salt water, and agree to take vacations at home while Hiccup promises to lighten up on his Viggo obsession.
Using copied notes from the Dragon Eye, the riders locate a living Buffalord, but it refuses to leave the island where it lives. The only solution is to bring Astrid to the Buffalord, but Viggo also arrives revealing he infected his own men to get the riders to lead him to the Buffalord. In spite of this, Johann's team finds the Bewilderbeast in the depths of the island with an egg. When he returns to say goodbye, however, he discovers that in reality, Hookfang has been helping the female protect her eggs from a Titan Wing Monstrous Nightmare. Gruffnut is revealed to owe money to the Hunters and promised one of the riders' dragons to pay off his debt.
After deciding that the Armowing will make the best use of their spare scrap metal, Hiccup, Astrid wearing Hiccup's Betrothal necklace , Snotlout, Fishlegs and Dagur go to the island to find the dragon. Hiccup rescues Viggo from his burning cell and agrees to work together to stop Ryker by using the Submaripper, the Shell Fire's natural enemy, to destroy the fleet while the Defenders' baby Eruptodon helps control the volcano's lava flow. This causes Stoick to reconsider allowing the dragons to roam freely on Berk. Hiccup develops a diving bell to dive underwater and Changewing Acid to dissolve the chains, but the Hunters' interruption wakes the sleeping Submaripper. Snotlout is reassured that he will be great, but he will follow his own path instead of his father's.
The riders, Heather in particular, refuse to listen and head in anyway, leaving Dagur to take charge and sacrifice himself to allow the riders to escape. However, Dagur betrays Alvin, claiming that because the Skrill is the Beserker's emblem, that they have full control over it, and gets rid of him. With a heavy winter storm on the way, the kids must train not just the dragons, but also the livestock, if there's any hope of surviving the winter. Hiccup still manages to free the Submaripper, and it rescues him just as the bell shatters, leaving Ryker to take a desperate Viggo away just as the other riders close in. By working together, Stoick and Hiccup are able to free the Riders and their dragons and repel Krogan's invasion. Heather meets with the riders and informs them Viggo is after the Flightmare, but this proves to be a trap by Viggo to eliminate the riders and exposes Heather as a spy. Feeling guilty over her mistake, Minden, with Snotlout's aid, recovers the hidden Dragon Eye lens on their island, which the Flyers have come for.
Dagur, despite his pleas that he is trying to change, is imprisoned once he sees the riders' plans and warns Hiccup that the shipyard is a trap. But, when Dagur the Deranged escapes from the prison on Outcast Island, he decides to take his revenge on Hiccup. During all this Fireworm dragons start arriving on the island as part of their migration; however being Fireworm dragons they start burning the island down. Though he leaves with a seemingly empty chest, it is revealed to secretly contain a Dragon Eye lens, though Gruffnut remains ignorant to its significance. Their group finally returns and meets the hunters' true leader, Ryker's younger brother Viggo Grimborn, who proposes a secret alliance with Heather in order to oust either Ryker or Dagur as possible traitors.
