MPAA Rated PG for adventure action and some mild rude humor

Sex & Nudity

  • A few kissing scenes between Hiccup and Astrid, and between Stoick and Valka, who are husband and wife.
  • After seeing Valka explain why she hasn't returned, Gobber says "That's why I never got married. That and one other reason." Craig Ferguson, the voice actor, has stated that the line was meant to imply the character is not interested in women. Most young children will probably miss the implication, and nothing more is said about the matter.
  • Ruffnut falls in love with Eret and looks suggestively at him several times.

Violence & Gore

  • There are several extended battle scenes. There is a fair amount of violence and implied casualties, but no gore. No blood. But there is some sword-fighting, perhaps some dragon fighting.
  • A dragon is killed by another dragon.


  • Some expletives such as 'oh my gods'.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The film takes a darker, more mature approach than the first film, dealing with issues such as family hardships, war, dictatorship, and poaching of animals, among others.
  • Compared to the first film, there are more frequent and more intense action scenes. This includes battles where casualties occur, although deaths are more implied than shown.
  • There is a character who is missing an arm, and his stub is shown, which could frighten younger children.
  • Some of the new dragons, particularly the massively large ones, may frighten younger children.
  • Much darker than the first film, and aimed towards older kids and teenagers/adults.


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • A main character is killed by a dragon when he saves another character. This is emotionally intense and maybe disturbing for some.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The transformation of Toothless, under hypnosis, from Hiccup's ally into a predator who tries to kill him, may be disturbing to young children.
  • Intense and dark scene involving a character's death about 3/4 of the way into the movie. There is no blood, and the camera cuts away from it, but the scene and build up in nature is very foreboding and intense.
