  • Cliff of Eternity ~ This is the longest and tallest peak in the South Islands (Meathead Islands) and just below of that is The Inner Ocean alongside Pointy Point.
  • Meathead Graveyard ~ Meathead Graveyard is located in the far north side of the South Islands and is just beside the Cliff of Eternity. This is where the Meatheads go and bury their dead.
  • Meathead Village ~ The Meathead Village is where the Meathead Tribe lives.
  • Pointy Point ~ Pointy Point lies at the south-western part of the Meathead Islands and is located right between Cannibal Isle and Isles of Doom.

Meathead Public Library

The Meathead Public Library is a library that was formerly guarded by the Hairy Scary Librarian who killed any trespassers. This is because The Thing which is a meeting between Viking tribes forbade reading books. After Hiccup, Fishlegs, and Camicazi accidentally causes Madguts the Murderous to send the Hair Scary Librarian to the Amber Slavelands, Hiccup asked his father to propose at the next Thing to lift the ban on books. By the time Hiccup was an elderly man, he had spent "many happy hours" at the Meathead Public Library.
