What are you trying to prove here?

what if dragons are not reptiles i mean the movies look like a reptile but they are caricatured like dinossaurs and dinossaurs were birds so maybe hey are some other kind of species like an massive fire shooting featherless bird

Your premise that dragons only have a reptile brain is completely invalid because of the very obvious social structure seen in the movies. The mere fact that dragons appear to be social creatures mean that they would have evolved areas of the brain needed for social interaction independently (convergent evolution, think bats and birds). This is also obvious when we see that Toothless stays with his mate after impregnating and raising their young. These 'social' parts of the brain would allow them to feel affection for their humans and make training them, like one would a mammal, possible. The animals we choose to domesticate are usually social animals. Cats (yes, even cats), dogs, horses, cows, sheep, chickens etc. are all social animals. And as we see in the movie dragons are in fact social creatures capable of complex emotion, unlike other reptiles.

Oh, follow up, these dragons are endothermic. Only endothermic animals curl up in order to conserve body heat as we see Toothless as well as the Terrible terror doing in the first movie.

With all due respect, ARE YOU SURE YOU WATCHED IT? LIKE, AT ALL?

Um, you have to consider that A: These are supposed wild animals, warring on a tough, hardened tribe so Hiccup doesn't know how he's supposed to treat creatures. Also, in Gift of the Night fury, Hiccup does give him an independent tail, but Toothless declines it, because he wants to be together. It's only when he has something else--A mate, the Lightfury-- that he wants to, because it is then and only then does Toothless actually have something else besides freindship with Hiccup. His instincts then take over. You're also forgetting that this is a DRAGON, not just a lizard or snake. In fact, most of the dragon models were based of mammals, birds and insects. For example, Toothless was based off horses, cats, and dogs.

I’ve commented on this when it came out, but I’m doing it again to help you, Matpat, with the rage of HTTYD fans such as myself. You’re welcome. I was thinking you should make another HTTYD theory to appease us. This is the only time my theory sense has ever went off. You see, in the TV shows and movies where the Hiccup, the dragon riders, and sometimes other people would fall from heights that would certainly kill you. But the dragons would catch them, I feel like they would still die. Sometimes bye the arms. Yes, they would use their sharp claws and grab people falling from heights hundreds of feet up in their air bye the arms. The arms! Shouldn’t that not only kill you but also rip your arms off. I can see the thumbnail already: Hiccup should be DEAD. I don’t think Matpat will actually see this, so please help me get this to him by liking, putting this in his newest videos. Please help me out. I would really like it if he did this theory. I just hope he does more research on it than this absolute lie of a theory.

I agree with you except reptiles are actually smart but not to solve puzzles but rather in survival saltwater crocodiles and any other reptile move from hot to cold places and snakes are actually smart because if they weren’t smart they couldn’t think about escaping

Can you really fault Hiccup for not trusting the Dragon. These are wild animals after all, and considering the fact that the alternative is Killing them, there is an argument to say this is better. And these safety measures aren't really malicious, just for safety purposes, as the dragon might fly you somewhere you don't want to go. Again, Hiccup was raised under a society that kills dragons on sight, so trust isn't really there. Vikings are brutal, and this is actually within what you could probably expect for them.(I'm not an expert though, so I might be wrong about that) Another point: Maybe Dragons have more complex brains than other reptiles, it doesn't seem that farfetched to me Not to say this isn't a decent theory though, just that there are counter arguments to the points you made

This fucking theory perfectly encapsulates why somany people dislike and disregard your content. It's just sheer nonsense and rambling for ten minutes about something not set within the rules of the narrative. Honestly somtimes l wonder wether you've actually watched the film's you're theorising or wether you've just had an unmotivated script writer lazily conjure up infomation from wiki. And now look l understand why you made this theory which was to capitalize on the new movie but seriously? It really just shows your disingenuous and how you care more about money rather than making well thought out content for fans

I don't know if MatPat is a theorist or a member of PETA. Then again, he isn't lazy so he can't be a member of PETA.

Dragons are based off a bat-lizards and they seem to be the same brand of dragon because of how the light fury sleeps its bat like so considering the fact that bats are mammals and these dragons are bat-lizards they may in fact have the brain to love, idk I might be wrong, still luv your work tho

Brah... this episode's points are as useless as Snotlout's ideas. "Animal abuse"? The fu*k does it mean animal abuse in a world where the HUMANS are the ones trying to survive. Did you see the damn lizards? Even those little fu*kers that small as a hand can mess a adult human up. Also, if you skipped the first da*n movie, for generations, humans HUNTED dragons and dragons HUNTED humans, and other lunch sources... Does survival mean anything to you? What? Our ancestors that hunted dianosaurs for dinner should be acussed of "animal abuse" but T-Rex eating peasants around ain't a problem? Fu*k your points when you put laws from our world in another world and time.
