Seagulls are birds seen occasionally in the DreamWorks Dragons Franchise.


Seagulls, also simply called Gulls, are marine birds belonging to the Family Laridae. They are often a combination of grey and white with some black, depending on the species. Seagulls are found worldwide, even in Antarctica. Most live in coastal areas, but some species will move inland. They also migrate great distances. Gulls are very opportunistic feeders and can eat many things other than the typical fish. They even frequent landfills.


In the Franchise, Seagulls don't have a function, except, perhaps, as a nuisance.

In reality, this holds as well. However, historic Vikings were known to eat a variety of sea birds and their eggs, which may have included seagulls.

Seagulls are seen flying in the distance in the movie several times, particularly while Hiccup is flying with Toothless. They're seen in flocks traveling among the sea stacks.

Season 1

In "Dragon Eye of the Beholder, Part 1" when Hiccup and Toothless land on The Reaper, they look at a cage. Hiccup assures Toothless that the cage is empty and has nothing to fear. In the same moment, a seagull flies out and Hiccup states "Okay, now it's an empty cage."

In "Gone Gustav Gone", a seagull is seen landing on the wreckage of the reaper before a giant screaming eel scares it off.

In "Night of the Hunters, Part 1", the Dragon Riders go to the Ship Graveyard to find clues about the Dragon Hunters. A seagull is seen flying above the wreckage of the reaper.

Hey, Astrid! Piglegs says you want armor patterns. Some seagull just flew off with mine. Help me find it, and I'll give you a copy.
