The main character, Hiccup, is the son of a Viking chief who lives on Berk Island. The dragon has constantly invaded this island, which is why battles never stop.

Hiccup is hated in the village because he is weak-willed and weak-minded. Hiccup tries to kill a dragon to be recognized by other Vikings. Led by Gobber the Belch, Hiccup manages to catch a small dragon, whom he names Toothless, and attempts to train it through his own methods, when the How To Train Your Dragon book was found to have only one page and therefore unhelpful. During the final part of the rite of passage, Toothless offends another dragon and a fight ensues between all the dragons. As this is seen as failure to train the dragons correctly, the boys are exiled, allowed to stay one night while a storm rages.

During the storm, three Sea Dragons are washed up on the shore of the island and one seems a threat to the Vikings. Hiccup is chosen to negotiate with the dragon, who has eaten one of the other dragons. However, the dragon, who calls himself the Green Death, says he is going to kill all the Vikings. While the village elders argue over how to attack the Green Death, Hiccup, the boys and their dragons start a fight between the Green Death and the other sea dragon, the Purple Death, resulting in Hiccup nearly being swallowed and having to be rescued by Toothless, killing both sea dragons in the process.

Hiccup and Toothless become heroes because of their bravery. The fight is cut off as the boat tips over and is holed by an object, a coffin, upon which Hiccup rides back to the Isle of Berk. On the beach, it is discovered that it is the coffin of Grimbeard the Ghastly, the greatest pirate of all times and Hiccup's great great grandfather. Soon the coffin is opened and they find out that it contains a living man, named Alvin the Treacherous, who hides his true identity under the name Alvin the Poor-but-Honest-Farmer.

Alvin tells the Hooligans that he was locked in the coffin and sent out to sea by "some very rude people".

He claims that he discovered the coffin buried in the Peaceable country, and upon opening it, a booby-trap was set off, which cut off his right hand. He also tells the Hooligans that in the coffin, he found a riddle that tells how to find the treasure of Grimbeard the Ghastly and a map that depicts the island where the treasure is buried. They reckon that the treasure is in the Isle of Skullions, an island inhabited by dragons called Skullions, that while being blind, deaf, and flightless, have a keen sense of smell.

According to the riddle, the hunting dragon of the heir to the Hairy Hooligan's tribe will sniff out the treasure. The Hooligans travel to the Isle of the Skullions, where a small treasure chest is found by Snotlout, along with Grimbeard's famous sword, the Stormblade. However, Grimbeard has booby-trapped the chest with a smell that would wake up all of the Skullions on the island, and a brief, desperate fight with the Skullions ensues, during which Hiccup dislocates his right arm.

A few of the Skullions are killed, and the Vikings escape with the treasure. Upon nearing Berk, the Hooligans begin fighting over the treasure, and as they fight, they are ambushed by a group of cannibalistic Vikings known as the Outcasts. Alvin reveals himself to be the Outcast's chief, and another battle starts. The ship soon catches fire and sinks. Everyone abandons it, climbing on the Outcasts' ship to continue the battle, but Hiccup, Toothless, Fishlegs, and Alvin are trapped underneath the capsized ship, kept alive with an air pocket. As the air pocket is finally destroyed by the weight of the capsized ship, Toothless finds an underwater cavern filled with air.

As the party begins to explore the cavern they come to a door and upon opening it, they find it filled with mountains of gold and jewels, the real treasure of Grimbeard the Ghastly.

Alvin turns on Hiccup to kill him using the newly-acquired Stormblade, the sword of Grimbeard the Ghastly. In the sword-fight that follows, Hiccup discovers that he is actually left-handed and hence why he was never good at sword-fighting.

In the fight, Alvin steps on a pile of treasure under which is hidden a Monstrous Strangulator, an octopus-like creature that was placed there by Grimbeard to guard his treasure. It consumes Alvin, and as it comes next for Hiccup, Hiccup tricks the creature into injecting itself with its own poison. The creature's nervous system is destroyed and they escape, but Hiccup decides that the world is not ready for the treasure, and leaves it behind. They soon surface with the aid of Toothless, and the book ends with Hiccup, Toothless and Fishlegs all getting back to the village and finding that the Hooligans had survived and won the battle with the Outcasts but had set them free.

In the epilogue, Hiccup tells us that in a secret compartment in the handle of the sword that he used to fight Alvin, he found the last will and testament of Grimbeard the Ghastly. It turns out that the sword was Grimbeard's favourite sword. This book is the fourth in the series. During a hunting-with-bows-and-arrows-on-skis expedition, Hiccup finds Fishlegs acting strangely when they spot a group of Hysterics, a tribe of scary lunatic Vikings, who chase Fishlegs. Hiccup shoots an arrow at the chief Hysteric known as Norbert the Nutjob.

Hiccup and Fishlegs flee on their skis, with the Hysterics behind in hot pursuit. Hiccup falls off the side of a cliff.

At first One-eye, the Saber-Toothed Driver dragon which had pulled Hiccup and Fishlegs to the top of the mountain, refuses to rescue Hiccup; but when Hiccup points out that if he does not save him, Snotface Snotlout who had previously treated One-eye very badly will become Chief of the Tribe, One-eye saves Hiccup after all, and he and Fishlegs return to the village. Hiccup is worried about Fishlegs and takes him to see Old Wrinkly. Old Wrinkly examines Fishlegs and tells Hiccup that Fishlegs is suffering from Vorpentitis, a disease caused by the sting of a Venomous Vorpent, and the only cure to this disease is a vegetable called a potato, which can only be found in America.


Hiccup does not believe him, because all Vikings, except the Hysterics, believe that the world is as flat as a pancake, and there is NO such place as America. Old Wrinkly tells Hiccup that Norbert the Nutjob's father, Bigjob, had actually gone to America and made friends with the Americans, which he called "feather people", and brought back the potato to prove he was right about America being true. However, he was attacked by a Doomfang.

Old Wrinkly predicts the potato might be in the Hysteric Territories, and tells him that he must bring it back before ten o'clock the next morning, or else Fishlegs will die. Hiccup asks his father Chief Stoick the Vast if he can go to Hysteria in order to retrieve the potato to save Fishlegs's life, but Stoick forbids him. Hiccup lies to Stoick saying that he was spending the night at Snotlout's house, but instead he goes to get the potato. The two children enter through the roof of the great hall where the Hysterics are celebrating Freya's day Friday. They lower Camicazi through the chimney, but Hiccup accidentally falls into a giant pot of onion soup, and gets discovered by Norbert the Nutjob.

Hiccup makes Norbert show him the potato by pretending not to believe in the potato. Norbert finally reveals his father's preserved body, and in Norbert's father's hand is a glass case with the frozen potato which has an arrow stuck in it. Hiccup tries to persuade Norbert to give him the potato, but Norbert refuses. Norbert soon gets annoyed with Hiccup, and decides whether Hiccup should or should not die by throwing his double-sided axe into the air.

If it lands on the black side, Hiccup will die, if it lands on the golden side, he will live. Hiccup cheats by catching the axe just as it is about to land on the black. Norbert is annoyed that Hiccup cheated, and locks him in the cage. After the Hysterics fall asleep, Camicazi picks the lock of Hiccup's cage; freeing him Toothless took the key to cage from Norbert's pocket, but swallows it, and accidentally sets fire to a carpet.

Camicazi lowers herself down with a rope and grabs the potato, but sees Norbert's ticking-thing in the glass case and takes that too. Suddenly, the preserved body of Norbert's father falls on a row of Squealers a type of dragon that Vikings use as an alarm , who give ear-piercing screams. All the Hysterics suddenly wake up. Hiccup, Camicazi and Toothless get out of the Hall through the chimney. The three, along with One-eye, escape in Hiccup's boat, but get attacked by the Doomfang, which lives under a frozen sea called the "Wrath of Thor". The Doomfang breaks out of the ice and uses its tongue to grab the potato and eats it. Hiccup realizes that his mission has failed and guesses that the Doomfang had Vorpentitis, as it showed the symptoms.

Once he gets back, he realises that Fishlegs had only caught a cold, and Old Wrinkly had made a mistake. Stoick yells at Old Wrinky for making Hiccup go on the quest for nothing and almost getting killed by Norbert. Hiccup suddenly falls on the same bed Fishlegs was lying on, and his entire body goes stiff. Old Wrinkly examines Hiccup and explains that it is actually Hiccup who has Vorpentitis. Hiccup desperately tries to speak, murmuring "Oot me! Fishlegs realizes that Hiccup wants him to shoot him with the arrow, which is soaked in the juices of the potato.

Fishlegs shoots Hiccup on the foot, and Hiccup recovers.

Hiccup and Gobber are saved by a mysterious man in a fireproof suit riding a white dragon, whom they at first believe to be a man from the treacherous Lava-Lout tribe.
