Riders of BerkEdit
In Riders of Berk, Hookfang is shown to disobey and neglect Snotlout (the only Viking from the main cast that can't control his dragon). In "Viking for Hire", Hookfang behaved aggressively and Gobber was going to kill him. But after seeing that he only had a toothache, Gobber quickly fixed this by pulling it out. In "In Dragons We Trust", Hookfang runs off as soon as he was put on Dragon Island, unlike the other dragons. Snotlout and Hookfang have a unique relationship. It is shown that Hookfang does hold some affection for his owner, but Snotlout's immaturity and idiocy leaves him holding disrespect (mimicking Snotlout's "respect" for him). He also seems to take callous pleasure in making Snotlout scream when they are out for a flying ride. Hookfang also gets distracted easily, like chasing a seagull or watching a leaf fall. He may have learned this behavior from Snotlout, or perhaps he is naturally a willfull animal.

Relationship with SnotloutEdit
Hookfang and Snotlout seem to have a complex relationship. He is often shown torturing Snotlout for fun often with his fire skin. Also in Heather Report, when Snotlout used Hookfangs saliva as hair gel, Hookfang blew fire at him. However, he does hold some affection to Snotlout and, deep inside, cares for him. An example is in episode 5, when Snotlout jumps off Hookfang, Hookfang doesn't even notice his rider is in danger, but when Toothless tells him what's actually happening and sees that Snotlout is falling, he seems worried and quickly dives to save him.
