Johann: "Since as far back as Breakneck Bog, I've been doing everything humanly possible to rid the archipelago of you and your Dragon Riders. But you have a most annoying habit of not dying when you're supposed to."
Hiccup: "You have your own pesky habit. You never stop talking. You give away pretty much everything, especially when you think you have the upper hand."

This section requires expansion.

In order to complete the Dragon Eye and discover the location of the King of Dragons, Johann needs the Dragon Eye lenses that Hiccup possesses, so he shows up Dragon's Edge and discovers that Hiccup requires gems for the completion of his Dragon Eye II. Continuing his ruse as their ally, Johann suggests taking a trip to the Northern Markets with Hiccup alone and that he brings both his Dragon Eye II and all of his lenses. Despite Johann's attempts, Ruffnut and Tuffnut insist on accompanying them so that they can buy Chicken a birthday present. However, Johann still manages to send the Twins away on their shopping expedition and get Hiccup alone. During the hunt for gems, they are ambushed by Dragon Hunters, who threaten Johann's life while demanding the lenses. However, the Twins return from their shopping trip just at that moment and rescue Hiccup and Johann. They then go on to deduce that the only way the Hunters knew they'd be there is if there was a mole within their group. Johann and Hiccup then venture down into the Sandbuster's lair, where, after Johann helps Hiccup find the required gems, he reveals his deception and demands that Hiccup hand over the lenses. Hiccup manages to fool Johann and avoids getting killed by him thanks to the Sandbuster glass that acts as a mirror which confuses him. After a fight with both Johann and the Sandbuster, Toothless and Hiccup manage to escape with both the lenses and the gems. Whilst all of these events take place, Fishlegs and Snotlout aid Dagur in approaching a childhood bully known as Ansson the Abomidable and retrieving his Dragon Eye lens. Ansson agrees to give him the lens in exchange for help catching the "thunderfish." Although their search for a colossal fish remains fruitless, they do come to a conclusion that the so-called "thunderfish" was really a Scauldron. Dagur helps Ansson gain appreciation by the Berserkers, and in thanks, he gives Dagur the lens.
