They're getting stronger, more fearless. We may not be able to hold them off much longer. [src]

The Dragon Flyers are a group of Dragon Hunters and allies of Drago's Army which fly on the back of Dragons. Unlike the Dragon Riders they force the Dragons to fly where they want and to shoot at targets. The Dragon Flyers use Singetails to carry out their missions. 


Attack on the Chiefs

Following Drago Bludvist's attack on a meeting of chiefs to discuss the dragon scourge they all faced, Krogan gave Drago a Rumblehorn to ride in order to make his escape. Only Stoick survived the attack and saw this massive tragedy.

Fighting the Dragon Riders

That doesn't change that it's happening. They drove us out of the Edge. They bullied us away from island after island. [src]

Following the apparent demise of the Dragon Hunters' Chieftain Viggo Grimborn, Krogan took over the hunters. With them he captured several Singetails using a captured Death Song to immobilize them.

After forging an alliance with Viggo Grimborn, Krogan led his fellow Dragon Flyers in attacking Dragon's Edge. His flyers were able to force Hiccup and his riders to retreat to Caldera Cay.

The Dragon Flyers then attacked Caldera Cay and forced the riders to retreat back to Berk. Figuring the Flyers would be still be in suit, Stoick had the people of Berk get ready to defend their island. He then had Berk prepare its fleet to retake the Edge for his son and the other Riders. Hiccup and Berk's Auxiliary team managed to dismount the Flyers, allowing the Dragons to fly to freedom and the Flyers with much fewer dragons under their control.

Krogan meets Heather at the Northern Markets with some of his Flyers, in hopes of getting to her Windshear, and use the dragon as hostage in place for the lens.

Abilities and Skills

These dragons are fierce, and the Flyers are skilled. [src]

Because of Krogan’s knowledge of dragons, the Dragon Flyers benefit from his methods of ‘training’ dragons, so that they’re obedient to there every word. As well as this, they are trained specifically in air-to-air combat.

  • Dragon Training and Riding: The Dragon Flyers use very similar methods, like Krogan’s, to ‘train’ their dragons (usually subjugation), thus making there dragons fairly obedient to there command. The Dragon Flyers are also competent Flyers, as they gave the Riders a hard time, and yet they had such a short time between their formation to battling the Riders.
  • Battle Skills: The Dragon Flyers are a formidable fighting force, as they have managed to keep the Riders on the run without losing any Singetails or Flyers. They’ve also taken advantage of their Singetails fighting potential, making it a challenge for the Riders to win a fight against them.




  • Several of the Flyers have tatoos on their arms that resemble the symbol on Krogan's belt, cape pin and Eret's branding.
    • This mark is the symbol of Drago Bludvist, symbolizing their allegiance with him.
