红死神是一只火龙纲的巨龙,在《驯龙高手1》里出场。这条龙是目前已知的体型最大的龙之一。它没有外出猎食的行为,依靠其他龙去获取食物并“喂养”给自己来生活。红死神会毫不犹豫地吃掉没有带来令自己满意食物的龙,曾有一条葛伦科龙只给红死神带来了一条鱼,于是红死神就窜出来一口吃掉了这条葛伦科龙。从某种程度上讲,红死神是龙族这个大族群的“女王”,本片中也只出现了一只红死神。

形态

红死神是目前已知的体型第二大的龙,仅次于迷惑巨兽。攻击力强大,整个身体上几乎没有弱点和视野盲区。红死神通体被鳞片,甲片和角覆盖,有一对巨大的翅膀,有多个眼睛,尾部有一巨大尾锤。

耐力

红死神具有巨大的破坏力。尽管身材庞大,但是它的飞行能力却十分强大,它可以轻松尾随无牙。红死神防御能力很强,能够抵抗很多攻击,例如一般龙的火焰喷射、投石机、长矛等。

红死神拥有巨大的鼻孔和灵敏的听力,有六只眼睛,这使它几乎没有感官盲区。但是和其他龙一样,它的体内不防火,它的移动也高度依赖自己的翅膀。

喷火能力

红死神没有喷火次数上限,一次还可喷出巨量的高温火焰,可以一次性烧毁整个维京人的长船舰队。

控制能力

和迷惑巨兽一样,红死神可以控制其他的龙。它使用类似瓦尔卡德拉戈和迷惑巨兽所用的方法,通过发出蜂鸣声来扰乱和控制其他龙的神经反应。目前不清楚它和迷惑巨兽谁的控制能力更强。目前已知的是,红死神只能强迫其他龙为自己铤而走险去寻找食物,并将食物送往自己的巢穴,但迷惑巨兽可以控制其他龙进行更为丰富和复杂的活动,例如控制无牙攻击小嗝嗝。相较于迷惑巨兽,红死神对其他龙族更为野蛮,会吃掉没有带来足够食物的龙,而迷惑巨兽的方法更为温和,例如瓦尔卡的迷惑巨兽,可以和它周围的其他龙和谐地共生在一起。

红死神和其他的龙之间,更像是主人和仆从的关系。或许正是因为受到了红死神的胁迫,这些体型较小的龙不得不去博克岛等人类聚落冒着生命危险抢夺食物。红死神躲在龙岛的熔岩中,张开嘴等待龙们把食物扔进来,如果有食物令自己不满意,他就会直接窜出来,利用强大的虹吸能力,将带来这些食物的龙一口吞下。

在《驯龙高手1》中,我们能够见到携带者食物的龙群前往龙岛,食物包括牛羊等牲畜,还有鱼类,甚至还有作为彩蛋出现的、电影《马达加斯加》中的那只河马。


弱点

虽然红死神拥有强大的翅膀,但是它在飞行时却不能做到想小型龙那样敏捷。同时,它的翅膀结构和其他龙类似,为由生物膜组成的膜翼,这种翅膀会被火烧毁。

和其他龙类似,红死神虽然拥有抗高温的外体表,但其内部,包括口腔、呼吸道和食道等却不防火。在《驯龙高手1》最后,当红死神试图喷火去烧毁自己正在追击的小嗝嗝无牙,在它将易燃气体聚集在口腔里后,无牙突然转过身,对红死神的口腔喷火,使这些易燃气体还没有喷出口,就在嘴里开始剧烈燃烧。与此同时,红死神的膜翼也在火焰中焚烧殆尽。最终红死神失控,高速撞向地面,被火焰焚毁。

被红死神控制的龙

几乎所有在《驯龙高手1》里出现的龙都会被红死神胁迫,但是不清楚这些没有出场的龙和在后期剧集里出现的龙会不会被红死神控制。

出场信息

驯龙高手1

小嗝嗝、阿斯翠和无牙发现了红死神藏匿的巢穴。后面小嗝嗝无意间告诉斯图依克这个巢穴的存在,斯图依克执意带领族人去龙岛攻击红死神。在龙岛,红死神摧毁了维京人的舰队和投石机,使他们被困在海滩上。千钧一发之际,小嗝嗝等人骑着龙赶到。最后小嗝嗝和无牙一起击败了红死神,小嗝嗝本人也因为这次战斗重伤昏迷。在此一战后,整个部落和龙之间建立了和平。

在电影中,红死神至少杀死了一只葛伦科龙和一只双头龙,同时摧毁了14只维京长船。在摧毁长船时,或许有维京人的伤亡,但是电影并未展现相关画面。

龙之书

红死神在本片开场时曾出现过。

电影制作者的描述

这个举世无双的巨大怪物,几乎是最凶狠的一种龙。传说她已经活了两千年,在她死前,会产下三千枚蛋,孵化出的幼崽会相互攻击,最后只有一个能够赢得竞争并活下来。

所有的龙都有自己的视野盲区,但除了这一只。这也就是为什么我们给她设计了六只眼睛而不是两只。另一个原因是我们想要她成为一个巨大的不稳定因素。她就是我们创造的“哥斯拉”。

All dragons have a blind spot. Except this one. That is one reason we gave her six eyes instead of two. The other reason is that we wanted her to be just generally upsetting. This one is our Godzilla.[1]

—— 克里斯·山德斯(《驯龙高手1》导演)


绿死神

绿死神最初被设定为《驯龙高手1》的反派,在后面被红死神取代。绿死神被设定为红死神的一个孪生兄弟,二者长相基本相同。在游戏《博克岛的崛起》里,绿死神取代红死神出现。红死神、绿死神似乎对应的是《驯龙高手》原著中的庞然定海龙(Seadragonus Giganticus Maximus)。

在游戏《驯龙学院》里,绿死神也出场了,它住在原来红死神的巢穴里,利用岩浆岩块加固自己的巢穴,在位于龙岛的驯龙学院校舍周围释放了二氧化硫等有毒气体,给学院带来了巨大威胁。最后无牙作为龙王(Alpha)试图安抚绿死神。就在这时,Harald Forkbeard向绿死神发射了一只长矛,导致后者开始横冲直撞,后来,绿死神回到了火山之中。


细节

  • While clearly meant to serve a similar role as the Green Death from the book, the antagonist, the Red Death has quite a few differences from the Green Death: it doesn't appear to be a sea-dragon and instead it lives in lava, and whereas the Green Death is almost a victim of fate, the Red Death is largely responsible for all the trouble caused in the movie.
  • In The Art of How to Train Your Dragon book from the film, the original designs and sketches all depicted it as a far more sea-dragon-inspired creature to the point of it being eel-like and covered in coral. The final design, however, went with a combination of in-book traits and kept the aforementioned coral-like spikes.
  • The concept image of the Red Death was more slender and oceanic, faithfully reflecting images of the Seadragonus Giganticus Maximus in the books; literally being concept arts of the movie edition of the Seadragonus Giganticus Maximus. Some of earlier concepts had multiple crab-leg-like smaller limbs, or feeler-like tentacles resembling those of sea anemones on tip of chin, coral-like projections as armors on entire body, and a number of luminous organs like those of jellyfish and deep sea organisms, making it unlike any sea-dragons previously seen in the books. Because of these aspects, the concept dragons' heads to necks somewhat resemble of dragons in eastern lore.
  • According to developer commentary, the final fight with the Red Death was modified in its last scenes. After Hiccup and Toothless send a bolt of fire into its stomach and it begins to explode, they fly down its spine and away to safety. In this scene the dragon's size was tripled to make the scene more dramatic.
  • In the movie, Tuffnut makes an allusion to Beowulf by calling the Red Death 'Bride of Grendel'.
  • The Red Death is one of the many dragons that was not known to Berk, with no references to it in the Dragon Manual and shown through the sheer surprise of Gobber and Stoick when it bursts through the rocks.
  • The Red Death is currently the only antagonist to actually be killed in the film franchise.
  • Despite being called the Red Death, the only red parts on its body are the small spikes on its sides and the ridges of its wings.
  • This is the only species that had been confirmed so far to have multiple pairs of eyes on a single head.
  • The live action theater version of the Red Death (the head) features Boulder Class-like traits, slightly resembling monstrous version of the Gronckle.
  • Guide to the Dragons Vol. 2 said that the length of the Red Death is 999 feet (304 meters). This is most likely a mistake as the Bewilderbeast is currently the biggest dragon in the franchise.
  • The Red Death is one out of the four currently known dragons who eat other dragons; the others being the Scauldron, the Changewing, and the Death Song.
  • According to School of Dragons, the Red Death's bones are still there on Dragon Island after the battle, as well as the remnants of the ships that it destroyed.
  • The Red Death also the first and only dragon that Toothless (possibly) and Hiccup killed.
  • In School of Dragons, Valka refers to both the Red and Green Deaths as females.
  • A tooth from the Red Death is featured in the Return to Dragon Island Expansion Pack. This could be a hint to the one from the Green Death in the books that almost impaled Hiccup after it exploded.
