Astrid's Dragon Scale Armor is a full-body armor worn by Astrid during the events of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.

History

Creation

At some point between How to Train Your Dragon 2 and the third movie (a span of about a year), Astrid's armor was constructed.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

Astrid uses her dragon scale armor during any time there is a high risk of injury. She uses it multiple times such as when raiding Dragon Trapper ships to free dragons. She also wears it when she and Hiccup venture out to find Toothless and discover the Hidden World.

About ten years after the main events of the film, Astrid's dragon scale armor is not in evidence, so it is unknown if she still has it or if it is still wearable or functional.

Physical Appearance

Astrid's dragon scale armor appears to be formed of several different pieces tailored to fit her body. There is the helmet, pauldrons, chest plate, torso guards, a skirt-like part over the hips, gloves, and gauntlets, leggings, and boots. There are also two wing structures kept folded for flight when needed. The suit is made out of Stormfly's shed scales, so has a predominantly blue color. The scales appear to be attached to a leather base, with Toothless' sticky saliva as the gluing agent. The whole suit is further embellished with small metal skulls around Astrid's midriff, and various spikes mimicking those of Stormfly.

Functions

Fireproof Armor

Due to its construction from Stormfly's scales, Astrid's dragon scale armor is effectively impervious to fire. It is unknown if the non-scale portions are also treated in some way to be fire-retardant.

Like a suit of armor, it affords some protection from attack, much better than normal clothing. However, dragon skin and scales can be cut and pierced, so the armor is not fully protective from all attack.

Flightsuit

Using Hiccup's successes with his flightsuit, Astrid has incorporated a flight suit within her armor. This allows her to glide and fly in the air independently of dragon transportation for a time.
