Sailback is the Thunderclaw that airlifted Toothless into Valka's Mountain after he was ferried to the shores by her Seashockers. His name was first revealed in Dragons: Rise of Berk.

Official Description

After the Seashockers found Toothless alone in the ocean and ferried him to Valka's shores, Sailback lifted Toothless into the mountain and reunited him with Hiccup.
  Dragons: Rise of Berk  


Meeting Hiccup and Toothless

Sailback was first seen bringing Toothless to Hiccup under Valka's command. He is then seen in the Dragon Sanctuary, curiously sniffing the newcomers. Later, he is seen during the battle at Valka's Mountain, being controlled by Drago's Bewilderbeast. On Berk, Sailback breaks free of the alpha's control and fires at him along the other dragons. He is then seen bowing to Toothless, the new alpha.

Moving to the Hidden World

Although not seen in the film, it is assumed that Sailback 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

Sailback is a typical Thunderclaw, with a dark blue, yellow and orange coloration. His belly is pale, with tiny blue spots.



  • Sailback was initially the fan-made name for the Thunderclaw before the species’ official name was revealed.
