|“||That was the last time anyone ever heard from those sailors, but rumors of their demise likely gave Viggo Grimborn the idea to fasten a metal, dragon hunting warship to the Shellfire's back.||”|
Project Shellfire is a weapon that Viggo Grimborn works on during Dragons: Race to the Edge, Season 4. It is a Shellfire dragon weaponized by Viggo, thus turned into a warship, to be used against the Defenders of the Wing, Berserker Tribe, Outcast Tribe, and Hairy Hooligan Tribe.
Following the numerous setbacks caused by Berk's Dragon Riders, Viggo Grimborn, Ryker Grimborn, and their Dragon Hunters began to work on the project on their secret island base. The Grimborns and their hunters kept it secret from everyone, save for a few merchants of the Northern Markets. However, Ruffnut and Tuffnut Thorston inadvertently stumble across the island, accidentally discovering the existence of the project. While Ruff was captured, Tuff was able to steal plans for the project during the episode "Twintuition".
Viggo and Ryker then left the island aboard their project in "Twintuition". However, Ryker and the hunters revolted against Viggo, taking control of the project and leaving Viggo on their island. Ryker then took the project to Caldera Cay and attacked the island from the water nearby. It crossed the sea towards the straits and to Berserker Island, where it was discovered that the project was a weaponized dragon, the Shellfire, in "Shell Shocked, Part 1".
During the events of "Shell Shocked, Part 2," Project Shellfire was taken to attack Dragon's Edge, where the Riders proved helpless against its long-range explosive shell attacks. The project came to an end when Viggo, wishin revenge upon hos brother, inticed a Submaripper- the Shellfire's natural enemy- to attack the dragon. After a lengthy fight, the Submaripper proved dominant, and the Shellfire plunged into the sea, taking the ship- Ryker still on board- with it.
