Yeah, I kind of would have liked to see that. But, in a way I’m warming up to the “you decide” ending they had.
They use that “hiding the character’s true potential but letting you know they still have it” in a lot of shows…probably the most successfully in a show called “Avatar the Last Airbender”, where on of the older characters—Iroh—was very powerful, he broke out of prison all on his own in, apparently, a one man army kind of way, but the show never showed it….So…I can respect them wanting to preserve Fishleg’s innocent character by not actually showing him kick Snotlout’s butt…but the implication was good enough, I guess XD
Yep! I rarely cry over movies/tv shows…but Breakneck Bog definitely hit all the emotional chords.
And I think as far as episodes used to develop one minor character to a new level of their character arch….Gem of a Different Color did it’s job entirely!

An angsty Fishlegs and Meatlug story because there’s not enough of this XD
Taken from my head canon that Fishlegs’ mother feeds him a lot to avoid him looking like Hiccup.
Fishlegs’ mother always had one motto when it came to Fishlegs….he was “better than nothing”. In the Hooligan Tribe only the strong belonged, and Fishlegs was, without a doubt, big enough to seem strong. It was his one pride and his only pride as far as the Ingerman clan was concerned.
Fishlegs might not have been the fastest, the most accurate, or even—ironically—the strongest, but one look at him and you’d think he was. He looked big and strong, and it was just enough for a pass-off to pride.
When he was born around the same time as Hiccup, Fishlegs was right above him, so he avoided receiving the shameful name ‘Hiccup’….not that Fishlegs was too flattering either. So, his mother went for the root of the problem. Her boy was different, two steps away from being a runt, and never would she even accept a boy as gangly as Stoick’s son.
