Hiccup is annoyed because the Riders believe that every training exercise is a competition. Fishlegs and Snotlout grow more and more competitive until Fishlegs decides to make a competition to prove who the best dragon trainer is. The competition involves them all training a Terrible Terror overnight and then seeing who has taught their Terror the best trick. Fishlegs gets so caught up in the competition that he pushes away his dragon, Meatlug, which eventually causes her to be kidnapped.
Many great things in this episode. I love the connection between Fishlegs and Meatlug, it comes second behind Hiccup and Toothless's for me. The plot is quite good and unique as well, with Alvin and Mildew using the tunnels that the Whispering Deaths created a few episodes back to get into the Academy. It also tells children that everything doesn't have to be a competition. The idea of the Riders practising using Terrible Terrors is good too. It doesn't have any overall plot development, but it's still a great episode on its own.
