The Flamehuffer is a small dragon that appears in the How to Train Your Dragon Book Series.

Physical Appearance

The Flamehuffer is a dragon found in caves around the Archepelago such as the Dragon Nursery on Wild Dragon Cliff. They have four legs adept at clinging to cavern walls, two small wings, and a short face with large bat-like ears.

They are described as giving "off extra little bursts of light that flickered on and off as they breathed in and out". Furthermore, The Incomplete Book of Dragons describes: "the hiss, pop, and crackle of Flamehuffers blasting jets of flame to incinerate unwary Caterbillars".


Besides being able to shoot flames, the Flamehuffer can mimic people's voices and animal's sounds. They can also speak Dragonese and are one of the few dragons that can speak Norse.


With a Disobedience rating of "7", Flamehuffers are trainable but with difficulty. They tend to cause great mischief because of their ability of mimicry.

Oddly enough, The Incomplete Book of Dragons indicates that Flamehuffers were both Neutral and sided with Furious in the Dragon Rebellion.
