A Wild Sandbuster appears in the Dragons: Race to the Edge, Season 5 episode, "Sandbusted".


Encounter with Hiccup, Snotlout, and Amos

While chasing Amos at the Northern Markets, Hiccup and Snotlout find themselves on what appears to be an empty beach. Snotlout is then suddenly grabbed by a dragon tail and pulled underground along with Hiccup. During their fall, a Sandbuster, the dragon that caught the boys, roars at them. Below the surface, in a cave, Hiccup and Snotlout discover the Sandbuster's lair, full of treasures and bones. They also find Amos, who has been caught by the wild dragon too. While the Sandbuster was walking through its nest, Amos attacks it. The dragon immediately starts firing at the humans, considering them a threat. When Snotlout accidentally shoots an arrow and makes a hole in the roof, the Sandbuster runs away, affected by the direct sunlight. Hiccup then makes a cage for the next time the Sandbuster arrives. Right when the three are about to escape, the Sandbuster attacks. Hiccup then begins making holes in the roof, trapping the Sandbuster between rays of sunlight. However, the dragon is able to escape.

Skirmish with Hiccup and Johann

When Hiccup goes to the Northern Markets with Johann to search for some jewels needed for the Dragon Eye II, they decide to go to the Sandbuster's lair. Inside, Johann reveals his true nature to Hiccup, who calls Toothless in assistance. The three begin to fight and when the Night Fury fires a plasma blast, the Sandbuster comes to see the source of the explosion. The two dragons have a quick fight that ends with the Sandbuster fleeing, and Toothless blocking its way back.

Physical Appearance

This Sandbuster is lime green, with light brown back, pale beige head and belly, rows of a dark green spike on his head, back and tail and pale blue spots encircled by brown dots on its wings. Its eyes are light blue.


Like the rest of its species, this Sandbuster is fiercely territorial, attacking anyone who enters its lair. However, it cares more about its life than its treasure, as it retreated every time it had to fight a stronger foe. It is also highly intelligent, as it blocked the sunlight (its only weakness) with its blast and knew when Hiccup, Snotlout, and Amos were trying to escape and how to destroy their way out.
