Official Description

This prying Dragon likes to stick its nose where it doesn't belong! It decided that Toothless was a friend at first sniff.
  — Dragons: Rise of Berk  


Meeting Hiccup and Toothless

Pestbud first appeared in Valka's Mountain, where he tried to get to know Toothless by sticking his nose under the Night Fury's tail and sniffing. This annoyed Toothless, who chased off Pestbud and the other dragons watching the scene. Pestbud was later seen flying with Hiccup, Valka, Toothless, and Cloudjumper, where he was one of the dragons who Valka walked upon while showing Hiccup her skill with dragons. Later on, he was one of the many dragons enslaved by Drago's Bewilderbeast, although he was later freed by Toothless. With the rest of the dragons, he retaliated against the Bewilderbeast when Toothless challenged the giant dragon and then bowed to Toothless, his new alpha after their victory.

Moving to the Hidden World

Although not seen in the film, it is assumed that Pestbud traveled alongside everyone from Berk and eventually arrived on New Berk. It is also assumed that he went to live in the Hidden World, along with every dragon from Berk.

Physical Appearance

Pestbud is orange in color, with green and blue stripes all over his body. He has little growths, similar to those of a Hideous Zippleback, on his back and tail. His front legs are somewhat smaller than his hind legs and he has an orange horn on top of his snout and an orange ledge under his chin.


Pestbud is shown to be curious and nosy, although he doesn't realize that this can make some dragons feel uncomfortable.
