* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire: As a vampire, it's perfectly possible to only drink blood from bandits and other enemies, and even feeding on NPCs does not seem to cause them any real harm. You can even become a [[OneWingedAngel Vampire Lord]] [[BadPowersGoodPeople without siding with the evil Volkihar vampires]].

* TheOrder: Were this for centuries, until they were forced to dissolve and [[TheRemnant go into hiding]] after the Great War.
** OrderReborn: The Dragonborn helps to reestablish the order in Skyrim, since combating the re-emergence of the Dragons takes priority over adhering to the terms of the White-Gold Concordat. That it's also a giant ScrewYouElves to the Thalmor is merely a bonus.

* SoleSurvivor: Of the fall of Cloud Ruler Temple to the Thalmor before Thalmor tracked him down.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The question now is "Did-he-get DyingMomentOfAwesome or [[FateWorseThanDeath got]] [[ColdBloodedTorture captured]] by Thalmor", not Do-he-lives-or-die. We don't see any corpses, Bolar's or Thalmor', outside Bloated Man's Grotto.

down at Bloated Man's Grotto.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: UncertainDoom: He performed LastStand and certainly no longer around. The question now is "Did-he-get DyingMomentOfAwesome or [[FateWorseThanDeath got]] [[ColdBloodedTorture captured]] by Thalmor", not Do-he-lives-or-die. Thalmor". We don't see any corpses, neither Bolar's or Thalmor', nor Thalmors', outside Bloated Man's Grotto.
Grotto nor find any dossier concerning him.

Added DiffLines:

** Furthermore, their differences are perfectly illustrated in how they treat the Dragonborn: the Greybeards tell the Dragonborn that while they're there to guide him/her, they're never going to tell him what to do, and explicitly state that they don't know the Dragonborn's destiny, and can only help them find it. No matter their own opinions on the Dragonborn's decisions, they only ever stop helping the Dragonborn if he/she murders their master in cold blood. On the other hand, the Blades, or at least Delphine, order the Dragonborn around like a servant, and explicitly tell him/her that they know his/her destiny:, helping the Blades exterminate dragonkind, and that he/she is going to do it, and show no hesitation in violating their oaths to follow the Dragonborn as soon as he refuses to kill one dragon.

** In Riverwood, Alvor the Blacksmith's wife might mention to a female Dragonborn that she's very pretty. . . and to stay away from her husband.

* TooDumbTooLive: This troper can safely guess that many low level dragonborns thought it would be wise to attack an giant or other high level enemies, when hardly leveled up, with the gear they got from sldiers or bandits.

* EldritchAbomination: Not in appearance, but in terms of being an inconceivably ancient and eternal entity who is arguably beyond human rationality and ethics (see BlueAndOrangeMorality above), Alduin fits the criteria quite neatly. Additionally, when you kill him, you cannot claim his soul, so it's possible that [[CosmicHorrorStory Alduin can never be truly killed, only delayed]]. In addition to that, upon "death" his physical form shatters to pieces, revealing a rather creepy draconic silhouette [[MadeOfShadow made of pure darkness]] which could be his real form.

* MadeOfShadow: When you kill him, his body falls apart and a shadowy dragon silhouette (maybe his [[EldritchAbomination true form]]) can briefly be seen before he vanishes.

* SympathyForTheDevil: It is repeatedly said that many of the Dragons are intelligent, peaceful creatures, if naturally inclined to be destructive and cruel, and want no part of Alduin's plans; but if they openly defy him, he'll surely kill them since he is obviously stronger than any of them. Indeed, many times you'll see dragons flying around that are not hostile until you engage them, as a dragon's pride is at stake when it comes to fighting a Dragonborn. Special mention for the trope goes to Durnehviir in the ''Dawnguard'' expansion, who yearns to return to Tamriel but has spent so many centuries in the Soul Cairn that now he can only enjoy the temporary summonings you invoke; and Numinex, the dragon trapped in Dragonsreach by Olaf One-eye who. Paarthurnax mentions that he visited once, and Numinex had been in captivity for so long at that point that he no longer remembered his own name.
