Berserker Ships are seen in both the TV series as background objects, and in the game, School of Dragons.


The Berserker ships are a form of Viking longship. They all are adorned with a wooden dragon figurehead and dragon tail at the stern, painted with blue. They appear to be single-deck and single mast ships as is characteristic of a longship. The square sail is white with a stylized image of a Skrill on it. Most ships are lined with spiky shields. In some instances, the lead vessel that the chief sails in has the Skrill emblem, while the other ships have a plain sail.

In the game, School of Dragons, the Berserker ship is equipped with crossbows directly mounted to she ship, and two cannonball catapults.


Dragons: Riders of Berk

In the episode, "Twinsanity", the first Berserker ships are seen, at the introduction of Dagur the Deranged and his Berserker Tribe to the DreamWorks Dragons Franchise.

Dragons: Defenders of Berk

In the beginning of the episode, "A View to a Skrill, Part 1", the Dragon Riders fly out in search of fishermen Mulch and Bucket. They find them at the mercy of a Berserker Tribe ship under the command of Captain Vorg. While Bucket and Mulch thought the Berserker crew was in need of aid, in actuality they had discovered their Tribe's symbolic dragon: the Skrill.

More Berserker ships are seen, in conjunction with Outcast ships, in the episode, "A View to a Skrill, Part 2", after Alvin the Treacherous appears to die at sea and Dagur the Deranged takes over control of Outcast Island.

Dragons: Race to the Edge

Several Berserker ships are seen in the episode, "Have Dragon Will Travel, Part 1". The group of ships almost successfully take down Heather and Windshear with dragon-proof chains.

Prizes are awarded if the players are successful sinking the invading ship.
