The Baby Shriekscales are two Piercing Shriekscales that first appeared in the episode, "Grumblegard, Part 1".



The Baby Shriekscales were somehow separated and lost from their family and ended up wandering the woods of Huttsgalor.

They fell prey to wolves, but were saved by Dak, Winger, and Burple in "Grumblegard, Part 1". They were taken to The Roost for care. Despite various offerings of food and play, the Baby Shriekscales grew hungry for the only thing they'd eat - Crimson Pine bark. While some of the Rescue Riders left to find the rare bark, the others tried to quiet them down. They only stopped their hungry wailing when the other Riders returned with a bag of Crimson Pine bark.

Despite being fearful of the angry old dragon Grumblegard, the Baby Shriekscales and the other babies quickly took a liking to the grandfatherly dragon, in "Grumblegard, Part 2". Eventually their care is given over to Grumblegard on his island, due to its abundant food sources and the dragon's vast knowledge.

Helping the Rescue Riders

The riders returned to Hazard Island to ask Grumblegard, if they could use the power of the Baby Shriekscales neutralize the effects of the Songwing dragon Melodia and the elderly agrees on the notion they'd be returned if their plan worked. Upon giving the hatchlings their cue, their sonic scream temporarily frees those in Huttsgalor. However their plan backfires, causing them to the flee for the Maze Caves. There they were found by Grumblegard, who arrived to take the baby dragons home, but not before the elderly dragon tells the riders how to properly defeat Melodia.

Celebrating Odinyule

One day, while Grumblegard was teaching all the baby dragons, including the Shriekscales, how to fly, the Rescue Riders arrived on the island with three Chillblaster hatchlings and Finngard. The four of them quickly bonded with the Shriekscales and the rest of the babies, and together they started playing, much to the annoyance of Grumblegard. After the Rescue Riders took the Chillblasters and Finngard away, the rest of the hatchlings became restless, which prompted Grumblegard to bring them with Huttsgalor, where they could celebrate Odinyule alongside Vikings.

Physical Appearance

The Baby Shriekscales are light blue with a pale yellow underbelly. They have red markings on their wings and tails, as well as red spikes on their head. Their feet are muddy brown.


Being hatchlings, the Baby Shriekscales are very active and lovable to humans and dragons alike. They cry out when they are hungry and won't stop until they are fed.

Through spending time with Grumblegard, the Baby Shriekscales have calmed down a bit as they don't screech constantly for food.

Abilities and Skills

Sonic Scream: Being Piercing Shriekscales, the hatchlings are able to emit a high-pitch sonic scream that can cause an ear splitting headache to those within hearing range. They only do it when they are hungry.


Rescue Riders

The Baby Shriekscales quickly warm up to and trust the Rescue Riders, viewing them as providers and caretakers.


Although they were at first scared by Grumblegard, the Baby Shriekscales climbed on the old dragon and began playing with him. They appeared to enjoy the company of the Foreverhorn more than the Rescue Riders. Because of this, the Baby Shriekscales went to live with Grumblegard on Hazard Island.



  • It is very likely that the two hatchlings are siblings, although it remains unconfirmed by the show.
