Dragonberry, also spelled Dragon Berry, is a plant that appears minimally in DreamWorks Dragons Franchise.
Dragonberry is a simple black plant with lots of green spikes and no flowers. As its names suggests, it produces berries. Though they are not seen, it is assumed that they are purple, from the juice that they produce.
They are mentioned to be poisonous, as much as the Threadtails, however not affecting them.
Due to their allergy to their own poisonous skin secretions, the Threadtails trail through Dragonberry spiny bushes to relieve the itching.
In addition to Rumblehorns, the Brooding Boltstamper, a hybrid resulting from the breeding of a Rumblehorn and a Skrill, inherits the inability to smell Dragonberry from its Rumblehorn lineage, as mentioned in Dragons: Titan Uprising.
Eret mentions dragonberries when talking about trapper tips for Rumblehorns.
|“||When I don't want a Skullcrusher or any other Tracker Class dragons to smell me coming, I coat my body in Dragonberry juice. It's the only thing in this world that they can't smell!||”|
Later, Gobber presents a question to the reader about how to get Scuttleclaw hatchlings to fly during bad weather. One possibility is feeding them dragonberry extract for a calming effect.
|“||Slip a little Dragonberry extract in their morning feed to calm the juvenile.||”|
|“||Don't touch! This dragon can secrete a poison through its skin when it senses danger. The only problem is the Threadtail is allergic to it too! It spends most of the day trailing around in Dragonberry bushes to relieve the itching.||”|

The Dragonberry is first mentioned in this game in Threadtail's description.
Dark vines possibly being those of dragonberries, appear surrounding Mildew's Strain's roost, who is a Threadtail.
|“||This Dragon spends most of its days desperately trying to use bushes to relieve its constant itching, especially during the autumn... however the local fauna is as poisonous as it is.||”|

Dragonberry is possibly implied (though not by name) in Foliander's description (a Threadtail dragon).
Though they are mentioned in the title, Dragonberries don't appear in the game. The game was released by Bazooka Candy Company as part of a limited edition 'Dragon Berry' flavor to promote How to Train Your Dragon 2 coming to theaters in 2014.
|“||This Boltstamper follows a code of conduct Vikings only wish they could live up to. Knock-Rocket uses her impressive tracking skills to chase cowardly foes to the ends of the ocean. Only the cleverest of prey know to use dragonberry juice to cover their scent, a weakness Knock-Rocket inherited from her Rumblehorn lineage.||”|
