|— Hiccup and Astrid discovering a Light Fury|
|“||The Light Fury moves as fast as Toothless and shares his ability to blend into the sky — even during daylight hours.
With her white coloration, the Light Fury hides seamlessly in clouds, sea fog, and distant horizons. Although skittish and skeptical, the Light Fury also shares Toothless' deep sense of empathy and will always wield her plasma blast to defend any in need.
Temporarily transforms each scale into a reflective surface that mirrors the Light Fury’s surroundings, essentially rendering her invisible.
The Light Fury was specially designed to be very similar and closely related to the Night Fury, but still have its own unique qualities and abilities. While Toothless is based in part on a black panther, Simon Otto based the Light Fury in part on another feline, the snow leopard. The Light Fury is also described as very rare, very elusive, and very wild.
According to Simon Otto, the Light Fury was inspired by snow leopards, axolotls, and terns. He views Toothless as a lion and the Light Fury as a lioness. The goal was to make her different enough from Toothless to stand out, while similar enough for them to be mates.
Hatchling to Adult
Light Furies greatly resemble Night Furies, but they are sleeker and less heavy with lighter coloring and glimmering textures that include white, blue, and pink. They possess a long, single spine running down the center of their back and light blue eyes. They also have two pairs of ear-like appendages on the top of their heads and a pink-colored nose. They also have some very light blue on their underbelly/chest area and feet. They are also somewhat smaller than Night Furies.
Because it is not the same species as the Night Fury, there are some notable differences. Toothless, the only known Night Fury, has very large scales covering his appendages, legs, and snout. The Light Fury does not show these traits. Also, the Night Fury has ridges going along the middle of its head, whereas the Light Fury does not. On the sides of its head, the Light Fury has two fewer appendages (or "nubs") than the Night Fury that are shorter and rounder, and the head of the Night Fury is slightly longer. The mouth of the Light Fury is shorter, and it doesn't stretch as far across its face as the mouth of the Night Fury. This last trait, however, might just have to do with the personal traits of Toothless and his mate, and it may not have anything to do with the species.
The wings of the Light Furies are slightly shorter than those of the Night Furies, and they possess no sharp tips at their ends. They are glittery white in coloration and have stripes of glittery light pink, purple and pale blue running down their wings- which are, in contrast to a Night Fury's bat-like wings- rounded in an almost butterfly-like fashion.
The tail flukes of the Light Furies are triangular and slightly resembles a heart, white in color, as well as shorter than those of the Night Furies. They have two smaller triangular flukes just above the main ones, these are hard to notice.
Light Furies are capable of firing explosive plasma blasts that are identical to the ones produced by Night Furies. In the same respect, Light Furies have an amount of control over when their flame blasts explode in the air. The Light Fury's plasma blast is capable of smashing apart full-grown trees in one shot.
As seen in How to Train Your Dragon: Homecoming, Light Furies can send a plasma blast towards a crystal and leave it glowing green for many hours.
Stealth and Camouflage
Due to their cloaking ability, Light Furies are very stealthy dragons. They can walk through the middle of a village without any humans or most dragons sensing them. The pale white bodies of Light Furies allow them to easily blend in with clouds and the sky in a similar way that Night Furies blend in with the night sky. Light Furies also easily blend into mist due to their white scales.
Light Furies possess the ability to seemingly disappear by flying through the blasts of their plasma fire. This is, in fact, a form of cloaking that occurs when they heat up the trace silicates in their skin, causing their scales to have mirror-like qualities, allowing them to temporarily blend in with their surroundings using reflection of the light.
Similarly to Night Furies, Light Furies also have acute senses, as the Light Fury sensed Hiccup and Astrid before firing at them. She later sensed Grimmel, who was nearby. It likely that Light Furies have night vision like Night Furies, but it isn’t very powerful, as the Light Fury had to light a crystal to check on the Night Lights.
Speed and Agility
Light Furies share the same speed and agility with that of the Night Furies, for one can swiftly swoop in and grab Hiccup, as well as taking off rapidly upon seeing Hiccup and Astrid. Even when drugged by Grimmel, the Light Fury was able to keep ahead of Toothless and Hiccup. Light Furies can also presumably preform dive-bombing techniques, just like Night Furies.
Strength and Combat
Light Furies can carry heavy objects, including humans and dragons that are larger than themselves.
Endurance and Stamina
Light Furies are shown to possess a great amount of stamina, for they can travel long distances without showing signs of exhaustion. They are also very durable, for they can get up after crash-landing without injury. They also can recover a few seconds after being drugged by Deathgripper venom after the collar had been taken off.
Just like Night Furies, Light Furies are very intelligent, as one can quickly fly away upon sensing danger and understanding a human's plea to save another dragon.
Tail Fin Dependency
Just like Night Furies, Light Furies are unable to fly if one of their tail fins is destroyed or cut off.
Behavior and Personality
|“||The feline-like Light Fury is gentle and playful by nature, like Toothless, but fiercely protective when danger is present.||”|
Just like Night Furies, Light Furies are very intelligent, expressive and very elusive. They seem to be sociable towards other dragons, but highly aggressive towards humans. Light Furies also seem to be more aggressive and are more willing to attack than Night Furies (though this could be because the female Light Fury had been attacked first by humans). In the first film when Astrid found Toothless, Toothless had been willing to attack, but he never charged a plasma blast. In the third film when Toothless first met his future mate, she immediately shot a fireball powerful enough to destroy a large tree after hearing the first sign of humans. However, they will eventually warm up to humans that have proven themselves as allies.
Like Night Furies sometimes do, Light Furies sleep like a bat hanging from a tree.
Light Furies might be inclined to hold onto a grudge as the Light Fury not only remembers humans but remembers how she doesn't trust them even though it had been ten years since she's seen any.
Due to not having too much positive contact with humans, Light Furies are very aggressive towards them. However, a Light Fury's trust can be slowly earned. If a person helps a Light Fury or saves its life, the dragon will return the favor, and will from then on be a friend. Another way is to find its egg and train it from when it hatches.

The Warlords managed to capture a female Light Fury shortly before the events of the film. When the Dragon Riders raid the ship the dragon was on, they miss the Light Fury, due to her ability to camouflage. She was successfully delivered to Grimmel the Grisly, who decided to use her to capture Toothless.
Many Light Furies are among the myriad of dragons that reside in the Hidden World.
The Light Fury is added to the game as a Unique Dragon in a 2019 Valentine update as a tie-in for the release of the third film.
Light Furies were added in the game in the update 3.0.0. A player can have a Light Fury only if they have membership. The unnamed Light Fury also appears in the game during "The Hidden World" expansion.
The Light Fury was a limited time offer, only to be gained in a special event. All players start with a baby Light Fury, but they can't level it up. The special event was used to get trust points so the player could level it up.
- The fact that the Light Fury and the Night Fury are closely related implies that dragons are members of 'families', like many animals in real life (I.E., crocodiles, alligators, gharials, and caimans are all related through the crocodilian family).
- Both species seem to be in the same genus, like lions and tigers, as they can produce hybrid offspring.
- The two species also share the exact same stats.
- The Light Fury resembles the legendary Blue-Eyes White Dragon from the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise owned by Seto Kaiba.
- Upon obtaining a three-star Light Fury in Titan Uprising, the Light Fury's fin glows blue like Toothless'. There also appears to be two extra fins running down its back on either side.
- The Light Fury was named by Astrid. While Hiccup tried naming it a "Bright Fury", he yielded to Astrid's name for it.
