I’ve always loved the implied backstory for this moment. For this to happen, Gobber had to have studied Toothless’s ruined tail mechanism, found Hiccup’s notes in the workshop, figured out how to recreate it, worked with toothless to make sure it fit, then modified it and forged Hiccup’s new leg to work with it. All so Hiccup would be able to immediately get back onto Toothless when he regained consciousness and not dwell on the lost limb. ‘Cause Gobber knows what it’s like to lose limbs and how important it is to keep looking forward toward what’s possible.
Gobber is freakin’ awesome.
