Cutter is a Relentless Razorwing. Best eyesight in the dragon world. [src]
  Leyla  

The Relentless Razorwing is a medium-sized Tracker Class dragon that first appeared in Dragons: Rescue Riders.

Development

Dragons: Rescue Riders was already well into development in 2017. In September of this year, DreamWorks Animation filed for a license to trademark "Relentless Razorwing".[2]

Physical Appearance

Hatchling to Adult

Young Razorwings have a large head compared to body size. They have a bronze-brown body with darker brown mottling, as well as a golden yellow undercarriage. Sharp knife-like spikes crown their heads, and travel in a single row down the spine to the tail. The tail itself ends in a single butcher-knife-like point.

Abilities

Firepower

Relentless Razorwings shoot a standard orange yellow fire flame from their mouths. Their fire breath is hot enough to reignite a doused fire dragon, such as a Fire Fury, or warm the scales and wings of a freezing dragon and leave a burn mark in stone wall. As seen by Cutter in "Deep Trouble", they appear to have a high limit shot.

Spike Shot

Razorwings are able to shoot sharp spines from their tails with very high precision. Similar to a Deadly Nadder or a porcupine, Relentless Razorwings don't appear too upset about losing their spines hinting that they may grow back overtime. Their spines can even bounce off certain surfaces likes areas that have reenforced metal like Waldundo's ship in "Treasure Riders".

Eyesight

Relentless Razorwings have excellent vision, and are able to see farther than many other dragon species.

Slicing Tail

The Relentless Razorwing's knife-like tail is able to slice through wood and other material with a very smooth cut.

Speed and Agility

In the very beginning of "Deep Trouble", Cutter is seen dodging Summer's water blasts, which are very accurate. Relentless Razorwings are also able to turn at such high speeds that they almost become a living drill or rotating saw.

Burrowing

Some Relentless Razorwings can spin fast enough to drill holes in the earth using their spikes. [src]
  Leyla  

As seen in the episode "Bad Egg", the Relentless Razorwing is capable of burrowing into the ground by diving towards the ground while spinning, resulting in its spikes cutting a hole deep into the ground. This ability can be used to create new springs of water as well. Leyla says that "some" Razorwings can do this, indicating that some cannot implying that only that young Razorwings can learn this ability or they have to be taught by their own kind.

Prehensile Tail

Relentless Razorwings have prehensile tails, which they can use to lift various objects. This was demonstrated by Cutter, when he used his tail to grab a shovel and place it underneath a boulder.

Weaknesses

Physical Illness

As with most dragon species, Relentless Razorwings are susceptible to the Dreaded Dragon Flu. To the point of not being able to control their spines especially when they sneeze.

Low Lighting

Razorwings have excellent vision during the daytime, but this ability does not extend to night vision. In little or no-light conditions, the Razorwing is not able to see any better than other creatures lacking night vision.

Cutting Limitations

Though extremely sharp, the Razorwing's spikes and tail are not able to cut through some materials, such as Tangle Vine and Belzium.

Dragon Peppers

When Razorwings are attacked with Dragon Peppers, they sneeze repeatably and can't defend themselves or fly straight leaving them vulnerable to attacks.

Behavior and Personality

Razorwings are vain, spending a lot of time on personal care, such as sharpening their claws. They can be very ignorant and igotistical at times. Cutter likes to pull pranks, and Razorwings love being pampered.

Only one Relentless Razorwing appears in Season 1, the main character Cutter. The Razorwing is also detailed in Leyla's Dragon Diary.

Trivia

  • The Relentless Razorwing is most likely based off the Razorwing from the book series.
  • The way they use spikes to dig holes and tunnels is similar to how a Whispering Death would use it's spinning teeth to dig.
