Dragons: Race to the Edge - Big Man on Berk

Fearing he might have grown allergic to his dragon, Fishlegs (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) turns to Gothi for help. However, her cure turns out to be worse than the disease when a mistake in her hypnotism completely changes Fishlegs' personality into an uber-Viking who becomes the talk of Berk. Under the guise of Thor Bonecrusher, Fishlegs infuriates Stoick (Nolan North) and sets out to tame the terrible Scauldron all on his own.

Along with giving Fishlegs a larger role for an episode "Big Man on Berk" also offers a fun turn for Snotlout (Zack Pearlman) who immediately becomes an unrepentant fanboy of Thor Bonecrusher whose brash behavior begins to rub the rest of the Dragon Riders the wrong way. Meatlug is also given some time to shine after being abandoned by Thor Bonecrusher by risking her life to save her rider (and thus snap the real Fishlegs back to reality). By the end of the episode Thor is but a distant memory, the Scauldron is defeated, and the true cause of Fishlegs allergies are revealed.
