Becoming Titan Wings
In most of the How to Train Your Dragon Franchise, a dragon grows into a Titan Wing by surviving to an old age. It is unclear how old a dragon needs to be to be considered a Titan Wing.
In the games - Dragons: Rise of Berk and School of Dragons - a dragon becomes a Titan Wing through training. In Dragons: Rise of Berk this takes place at Valka's Sanctuary. In School of Dragons, the dragon needs to obtain level 20 through various game activities. However, in School of Dragons, the player must additionally collect special objects called "Runes", then take their dragon to Titan Island to transform them.
|“||It is here [Titan Island] that the transformation will begin, and your dragon will be given strength that Odin himself could only dream of. The process will start by engulfing your dragon in fire. Within this flaming cocoon, it will grow larger than a thousand Beserker ships, develop spikes sharper than a battleaxe, and its wingspan will increase to rival the horizon itself. Once the transformation is complete, your dragon will be more powerful than ever. Take a moment to celebrate before you and your new Titan Wing friend take to the skies!||”|
