Official Description

This headstrong dragon won't stop until it gets what it wants. Luckily, most of the time, it just wants to say hello.
  Dragons: Rise of Berk  


Meeting Hiccup and Toothless

Gustnudger was seen in the background of a scene in which he tries to say hello to Toothless by rubbing up against him, to which the latter was a little annoyed. He is then seen in a group of other dragons who are investigating Toothless, before Toothless scares him and the rest off after being sniffed by Pestbud. Afterward he is observed being controlled by Drago's Bewilderbeast but is later freed from his control by Toothless. He then bows down to Toothless as the new Alpha. He is last seen standing on a pole, spectating the new Dragon Races.

Leaving to the Hidden World

When the people of Berk decided to move to the Hidden World, all the Windgnashers of the island, including Gustnudger, began the journey too, carrying different things such as ships. They eventually arrived at New Berk, where they settled down for a while.

After Grimmel the Grisly captured Toothless, Gustnudger, along with the other dragons, came to their Alpha's help. However, Toothless ordered them to stop when Grimmel threatened to kill the Light Fury. He was later locked in a cage with a Scuttleclaw.

Fortunately, the Dragon Riders began an attack on Grimmel's ships and freed Gustnudger, along with the other dragons, which returned to New Berk.

When the battle ended, Hiccup realized that the only way the dragons can be safe from humans was for them to go to the Hidden World. After Toothless gave the command to the dragons of Berk, all of them, including Gustnudger, said their farewells to the Vikings and flew off to the Hidden World.

Physical Appearance

Gustnudger has the appearance of a normal Windgnasher. He is lime green in color with black spikes and brown bumps on his body. He has several, little brown spots on his wings and frill.


Described as 'headstrong', Gustnudger is a stubborn and determined dragon who stops at nothing to achieve his goal. However, his aim is usually to say hello to fellow dragons. This friendly dragon was seen greeting Toothless and Hiccup with enthusiasm in the second film though the former seemed a little annoyed. But he is overall a friendly and likeable dragon to the duo.
