Books Franchise

Both the book series version of Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III, and the franchise version of Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III wore a Viking helmet. In How to Be a Pirate, Hiccup's Viking helmet had part of one horn sliced off while swordfighting.


Hiccup's helmet is a funnel shaped head covering with a horn on each side and circular decorations around the rim. As a small child it is blue with tiny horns both pointing in the same direction. When he is older it's brown and has larger horns pointing in opposite directions. The circular decorations appear to be shields. The right horn is missing its tip after the second book.
