Hiccup: "Fishlegs, again with the baby? This is a raid."
Fishlegs: "I couldn't find a sitter."[src]

Fishmeat is one of Meatlug's babies who first appeared in How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.

Official Description

Fishmeat, like all Gronckles, has a very round body and tiny wings. Yet, although they are small, they have incredible flapping velocity. As a young dragon, Fishmeat needs lots of naps and has occasionally been known to fall asleep mid-flight. Whether he's teething, eating stones, or taking naps, Fishmeat is lucky to have Fishlegs caring for him and carrying him around everywhere.


Birth and Early Life

Hiccup asking why Fishlegs brought Fishmeat along

Sometime between the events of the second film and the third film, Meatlug had offsprings again. It is uncertain how many she had, but Fishmeat is the only one that Fishlegs continually carried around in a pocket on the front of his flightsuit. Fishlegs even brought Fishmeat along on a dragon rescue mission. Hiccup annoyingly asked Fishlegs about "the baby" being present during the raid, to which Fishlegs responded he has been unable to find a babysitter. Later, Fishlegs and Fishmeat freed a caged Crimson Goregutter, with the baby getting relly excited upon seeing the giant dragon.

After the Dragon Riders returned to Berk, Fismeat started to play with the Rescued Crimson Goregutter. The two dragons jumped around until the Goregutter hit a building, which collapsed onto others, and ultimately fell into the ocean. Toothless then roared to the pair, stopping their game. Fishmeat quickly returned to Fishlegs.

Later that day, Fishlegs brought Fishmeat to the Great Hall, where he put the baby in a chair and fed him with a spoon.

Fishmeat travelled along the rest of the tribe on their quest for the Hidden World. He was fed rocks by Fishlegs on the way, while playing on his owner's head. Snotlout commented that people who were travelling with babies were the worst, but Fishmeat didn't seem to mind him.

Lost and Found

Have you seen Fishmeat? I almost had him down for his nap when Tuffnut made his Zippleback fire on a bag of corn being stored nearby. The loud noises woke my baby up, and he went shooting off to Odin-knows-where! I've looked everywhere! [src]

Physical Appearance

Fishmeat is a small, roly-poly baby Gronckle, with brownish rough skin on his upper body, and a softer yet bumpier yellowish underbelly, with yellow eyes — similar to some of the other baby Gronckles.


Sometimes I think I've torn off more than I can chew with this little guy. He's just so active and playful and has neverending energy! How do other dragon moms do this? Fishmeat just doesn't want to take his nap even though it's way past his bedtime. [src]

Fishmeat is energetic and at often times, a naughty baby dragon. He likes to play with anyone he meets, be it dragon or viking.



Meatlug is Fishmeat's mother. She is very caring and protecting of her son, just like Fishlegs. When the dragons left for the Hidden World, Meatlug carried Fishmeat in her mouth, due to the baby not being able to fly.

Fishlegs Ingerman

Fishlegs, for an as-yet unknown reason, has taken a liking to Fishmeat, though Meatlug has had a number of previous offspring. He appears to be very maternal to Fishmeat, even naming him from a combination of his and Meatlug's names. He also claims not to have a babysitter for Fishmeat, and takes the baby Gronckle wherever he goes, even if it is somewhere dangerous.
