Shrimp are only seen once in the game, School of Dragons.
Shrimp are Crustaceans related to lobsters and crabs. As crustaceans, shrimp are invertebrates and have a hard exoskeleton.
|“||The last type of shell is the chitinous shell; crabs, lobsters, and shrimp have a rigid skeleton on the outside of the body that is made of chitin. The chitin protects the delicate tissues and is watertight.||”|
|— Skulder in School of Dragons|
As with other invertebrates, shrimp have several life stages very different from each other before the well-known adult stage is reached. Between species of shrimp, there is a wide range of sizes, colors, and anatomical features. Some shrimp species, such as the Pistol Shrimp or Boxer Shrimp have noticeably enlarged fore legs, or claws, similar to a lobster. Shrimp are mostly a marine group, but some species can be found in fresh water. Shrimp can be found in tropical regions to arctic regions. It is possible historic Vikings came across shrimp such as the Northern Prawn. However, because shrimp are generally found on the sea floor in deeper water, historic Vikings may not have had much access to them.
In the DreamWorks Dragons Franchise, shrimp are seen only for educational purposes.
In reality however, shrimp are a major food source worldwide. Some species of freshwater shrimp are also kept in aquariums.
Shrimp appear in the Spring version of Loki's Maze called "Loki's Mirage". The player must follow the tiles of the appropriate life stages of frogs, butterflies and shrimp. The life stages depicted are: Egg, Nauplius, Protozoea, Mysis, and Adult.
At first glance, the adult stage resembles a lobster, however, because some shrimp species can have claws, and the life stages most closely resemble that of shrimp, the creature is a shrimp.
Shrimp are also mentioned briefly in the "Wrath of Stormheart" Expansion. They are mentioned as examples of creatures with chitin exoskeletons.
