Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons is a popular fandom crossover for four major Disney/DreamWorks films: Brave, Rise of the Guardians, Tangled, and How to Train Your Dragon, mainly featuring the characters Jack Frost, Merida, Rapunzel, and Hiccup. In late 2013, the film Frozen and the characters Elsa and Anna of Arendelle were quickly added to the crossover.
"The Big Four" name comes from the Rise of the Guardians canon where the "Big Four" refers to Guardians Nicholas St. North (Santa Claus), E. Aster Bunnymund (the Easter Bunny), Toothiana (the Tooth Fairy), and Sandy (the Sandman).
- Jack Frost (from Rise of the Guardians) - is the spirit of winter and is Guardian of Fun.
- Princess Merida (from Brave) - is one of the most skilled archers ever seen. Often considered to be "Autumn" spirit in fanon.
- Princess Rapunzel (from Tangled) - a princess stolen as a baby and locked away in a tower. Her long blond hair has healing abilities. Often considered to be "Spring" spirit in fanon.
- Hiccup (from How to Train Your Dragon) - clever and brilliant yet awkward teenage son of the Viking chief, the first person to befriend a dragon. Often considered to be "Summer" spirit in fanon.
- Queen Elsa (from Frozen) - has the ability to create snow and ice.
- Princess Anna (from Frozen) - Elsa's younger sister, a free-spirited princess.
- Toothless (from How to Train Your Dragon) - a Night Fury dragon and best friends with Hiccup.
- Flynn Rider (from Tangled) - a thief that befriends Rapunzel (and later falls in love with and marries).
- Kristoff (from Frozen) - an ice harvester that was adopted by Trolls when he was a young boy.
The most popular form of fanwork are fanart and gif-sets made to look like scenes where characters from the different movies are interacting, but it has also inspired fanfic and vids that are styles to look like a trailer.
With the release of Frozen in November 2013, a number of Jack Frost/Elsa works surfaced sometimes combining with The Big Four fandom. This later led to The Big Four turning into the The Super Six (also known as Rise of the Brave Tangled Frozen Dragons), adding Elsa and Anna into the crossover mix.
