Hookfang's Nemesis is a Titan Wing Monstrous Nightmare who first appears in the episode "Total Nightmare" in Dragons: Race to the Edge. He was trying to destroy the eggs that Girl Hookfang was rearing. He appears when Hookfang protects Girl Hookfang and her eggs from him. After a long fight, Hookfang uses his smaller stature to his advantage by outmaneuvering and eventually overpowering Hookfang's Nemesis.

Official Description

Unaffectionately dubbed "Giant Jerk Dragon" by Snotlout, this aggressive Nightmare was tormenting Girl Hookfang before Hookfang intervened.

Fighting Hookfang

This section requires expansion.

Physical Appearance

Due to his Titan Wing stage, he is much larger than an average Monstrous Nightmare, making him 69 feet in length. He has spots instead of stripes and is vibrant red and purple. (since he is the only Titan Wing Monstrous Nightmare in the series so far it is unclear whether all Titan Wing Monstrous Nightmares have the same color scheme.)


He is shown to be very aggressive, fierce, stubborn compared to Hookfang and not a quitter until he gets defeated by his enemies.


Being a fully grown Monstrous Nightmare, this Titan Wing has shown for his kind that their abilities are enhanced.

Strength and Combat:  He appears to be extremely strong as he is able to throw average Monstrous Nightmares with his head, with no signs of struggle, or by tail whipping them out of the air, where Toothless was seen to struggle a little when fighting a Monstrous Nightmare like Hookfang.

Endurable and Stamina: He shows great endurance by taking multiple attacks from his enemies; two plasma blasts from Toothless, shots from Barf and Belch, several Monstrous Nightmare attacks and crashing into objects. From the chasing, taking the attacks, and crashing into objects he has proven his stamina is great enough to continue to fly away fast enough to get away from Hookfang.  Hookfang's Nemesis had likely fought Hookfang just before Snotlout have arrived to say goodbye forever to him as he was shown to be out of breath and lying on the ground.

Speed: He is shown to be able to fly fast enough to catch up to Hookfang who had increased speed due to his few years of training.

Fire: It seems that his fire is more powerful than those of average Nightmares and has an enhanced fire range.


As a large dragon, this Monstrous Nightmare maneuvers around slower compared to other dragons like Hookfang. He is unable to make sharp turns or stop himself quickly. Also, he has difficulty flying through thick and dense forests and gets entangled in the branches and trees. Additionally, his large size hindered him while he was under the dome, making it hard for him to move and fight back against a smaller Hookfang. These weaknesses enabled Hookfang to defeat him, but this dragon was still a formidable opponent.
