Thornado is Stoick's Thunderdrum dragon. He was named for having the "power of Thor" and the "ferocity of a Tornado" ("besides it's the only thing he responds to").

Like his Rider, Thornado is quite stubborn, but he's very strong and pretty fast as Toothless (and Rainbow Dash). Stoick released Thornado so he can take care of baby Thunderdrums.
