Tuffnut's Dragon Scale Armor is a full-body armor worn by Tuffnut during the events of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.



At some point between How to Train Your Dragon 2 and the third movie (a span of about a year), Tuffnut's armor was constructed.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

Tuffnut uses his dragon scale armor during any time there is a high risk of injury. He uses it multiple times, such as when raiding Dragon Trapper ships to free dragons.

About ten years after the main events of the film, Tuffnut's dragon scale armor is not in evidence, so it is unknown if he still has it or if it is still wearable or functional.

Physical Appearance

Tuffnut's dragon scale armor appears to be formed of several different pieces tailored to fit his body. There is a helmet, pauldrons, chest plating, a scaled cod piece, boxing-like gloves, scaled leggings, knee guards, and boots. There are also two wing structures kept folded for flight when needed[1]. The suit is made out of Barf and Belch's shed scales, so has a predominantly green color. The scales appear to be attached to a leather base, presumably using Toothless' sticky saliva as the gluing agent. The whole suit is further embellished with a large number of large, metal-tipped spikes and a miniature head with wings attached to the helmet, resembling those of Belch. Rather than having armored gauntlet gloves, like the rest of the Riders, Tuffnut's hands are equipped with mitten-like armor.


Fireproof Armor

Due to its construction from Barf and Belch's scales, Tuffnut's dragon scale armor is effectively impervious to fire. It is unknown if the non-scale portions are also treated in some way to be fire-retardant.

Like a suit of armor, it affords some protection from attack. However, dragon skin and scales can be cut and pierced, so the armor is not fully protective from all attack.


Using Hiccup's successes with his flightsuit, Tuffnut has incorporated a flightsuit within his armor. This allows him to glide and fly in the air independently of dragon transportation for a time.



  • Though Tuffnut's dragon scale armor is considered fireproof, he wears his long hair braided outside of the suit, negating some protection from fire.
