Scarers featured in How to Break a Dragon's Heart and live in the Woods that Howled on Berserker Island.

Even though they would be quite effective for the Dragon cause, Scarers remained un-involved in the Dragon Rebellion.

To Note: Stats from The Incomplete Book of Dragons differ from those given in the info box found in How to Break a Dragon's Heart.

Physical Appearance

Scarers very much look like dragonized bats. They appear to be black in color with purple wing membranes.


The Scarer's sense of smell is excellent and can detect fear-induced adrenaline in a victim's bloodstream.


Scarers are small, blind and have poor hearing.


Travelling in "thick, cloudy black swarms called flutters", Scarers will flit about at night sniffing for a fearful victim. Because their senses are otherwise dull, they will crawl all over the victim sniffing. This causes even more fear induced adrenaline in the hapless victim. Once a victim is identified, Scarers will drink their blood containing the prized adrenaline.

Fishlegs goes to Berserker Island at night in a rage to collect honey from the bees of Berserk. However, his initial confidence wears off and Hiccup finds him best upon by Scarers.
