* AllThereInTheManual: His nature, and how it relates to Akatosh, is a bit loopy but it has been talked about in previous games and texts. There seems to be a disagreement among scholars as to whether or not Alduin ''is'' Akatosh (for the record, Alduin states that he isn't), or at least an aspect of him. His role as the BiggerBad also counts, as you can only find it in really obscure texts.

** BiggerBad: In ''Battlespire'' and ''Oblivion'', though we only find this out after reading a ''very'' obscure [[http://www.imperial-library.info/content/seven-fights-aldudagga text]], which reveals that Alduin was responsible for the corruption of Mehrunes Dagon. That's right, the Oblivion Crisis and most of the following fallout was indirectly ''his'' doing; this means that he actually ''pushed along'' the fulfillment of the "Prophecy of the Dragonborn".
** Considering said obscure text matches [[spoiler:Mankar Camoran's claim that Mehrunes Dagon was banished by Lorkhan/Shor]], he could be the BiggerBad of Tameriel itself!

* AwesomeMomentOfCrowning: The epilogue after [[spoiler:defeating Alduin in Sovngarde]], set on the Throat of the World, is essentially the dragon equivalent of [[spoiler:acknowledging that ''he'' is now the effective ruler of the dragons.]]
** It's more [[spoiler: He's leading the rest of the dragons in an obituary for Alduin, but in effect the dragons are bowing before the Dovahkiin's power (remember, AsskickingEqualsAuthority to dragons)]].

** In ''Dragonborn'', the Dragonborn is sent to defeat [[spoiler: Miraak, the first Dragonborn]]. The latter even lampshades his suspicion that [[spoiler: Hermaeus Mora]] pitted them against each other simply because because he found [[BookEnds bookending]] them amusing.

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Within each Dragon is the innate desire to dominate and destroy, although their baser instincts can be overcome with a ''lot'' of HeroicWillpower. Paarthurnax lampshades that their kinship means that [[NotSoDifferent those same desires]] also run in the Dragonborn.

* CoolOldGuy: As he was Alduin's right-hand dragon, this means he's well over a thousand years old. Unlike the other dragons, he was never killed and resurrected, and it ''shows''; his wings are tattered and his horns are broken.

He's also the only dragon in the game who is personable towards the player.

* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: It sounds vaguely... Scottish? Even if it's not, it sounds absolutely nothing like the generally Scandinavian sounding accent of every other Nord in the game.

* [[OneManArmy One Dragon Army]]: Alduin was able to destroy the entire garrison at Helgen and raze much of the town to the ground by himself, without taking a scratch, despite the presence of elite Imperial soldiers and battlemages. During the the Dragon War, his presence (and eventual absence) alone was enough to decide the battle between the dragons and the human/dragon alliance. In terms of lore, he's easily able to destroy the entire world when the appropriate time comes along (although he prefers to rule it instead).

* {{Badass}}: Vahlok, who overcame the impressive power list above and kicked Miraak's ass so hard the shockwave separated Solstheim from continental Tamriel. Miraak himself was only able to survive through the intervention of Herma-Mora himself.
