This supersonic swimmer is among the fastest in the Tidal Class. So loyal and trustworthy it may even let a rider sit in its mouth... without eating him. The swift-moving Sliquifier uses its speed to churn up a powerful acid stream to fire at its opponents.
Despite its small size, the Sliquifier is an incredibly powerful and fierce companion. While many have noted this dragon's swiftness across any terrain, Vikings will commonly stand in awe as they watch the Sliquifier glide through water. Darting through seas at torpedo-like speed ensures that no prey is safe from its glowing and acid-powered blasts. The Sliquifier's fin-shaped wings not only give it the ability to whirl quickly through water, but also help it soar with great acceleration and speed. Once you get closer to this Captain of the ocean make sure to spot the small fin lining its neck. A subtle feature, but one that gives the Sliquifier a striking look while flying among its fellow winged companions on campus. And although the Sliquifier is a slow shooter, it is able to use its powerful blasts even more of a threat. While the acid emitted from the Sliquifier makes it a danger to any prey, its alarming speed is what makes it truly more deadly.
Sliquifier eggs radiate and have a faint glow outside. They appear to have what seems to be little protrusions that stick out from its side, covering the entire egg.
Hatchling to Adult
The Sliquifier is comparatively smaller than other dragons. It has a dolphin-like tailfin, a long neck, and a small fin lining its neck. There are thin tentacle-like strings under its chin. The Sliquifier in How to Train Your Dragon 2 is portrayed as green with a short tail, two wings, and two small fins, bearing resemblance to a seal. In Dragons: Rise of Berk and later School of Dragons, the Sliquifier is portrayed as having a sea green body with bright purple wings and tail and a mouth that glows blue. Instead of two fins, this later version has four legs.
A Titan Wing Sliquifier in Dragons: Rise of Berk is yellow, close to golden, in color. Its wings and tail fin are bright blue but has a few green spots on it. The fin on its long, slender neck is larger, extending far down its back. It has more tendrils on its chin, which can glow bright blue. Instead of two, the tail fin is split into four. Its mouth becomes bigger than its head, with the nasal horn also being longer.
Like the Changewing and several other dragons, the Sliquifier emits acid. It uses its speed to churn up powerful streams of acid before attacking its opponents. Sliquifiers make their blasts stronger as they increase their speed at the time of release. Although the Sliquifier is a slow shooter, it is able to use its speed to make its powerful blasts even more of a threat.
Speed and Agility
The Sliquifier is the fastest swimming Tidal Class dragon, being described as a supersonic swimmer. Its speed makes it useful to hunt prey and escape from danger. The Sliquifier also uses its speed to churn up acid. As its speed increases, the power of its acid increases too.
Behavior and Personality
The Sliquifier is an incredibly loyal and trustworthy dragon, for it would do anything to protect its rider.
Three Sliquifiers make a brief appearance in Book of Dragons. Coincidentally enough, they are seen behind a Scauldron, their main predator, further strengthening the connection between these two dragon species.
This fact was also mentioned on the "Dragonpedia" on the How to Train Your Dragon website, but this information has now been removed, with the word "Sliquifiers" being replaced by the phrase "smaller species," possibly because they also hunt Seashockers.
The Sliquifier may have evolved its incredible speed to escape predators like the Scauldron.
The Sliquifier is the second dragon species to be hunted to near-extinction, with the first being the Night Fury, and the third and fourth being the Buffalord and Crimson Goregutter respectively.
However, the Night Fury and the Buffalord were hunted by Vikings, while the Sliquifier was hunted by Scauldrons.
