* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: [[spoiler:Becomes the new Daedric Prince of Madness during the events of the Shivering Isles]].

* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: [[spoiler:Becomes the new AmbiguousGender: [[spoiler:As Sheogorath. Daedric Prince of Madness during the events of the Shivering Isles]].Princes are technically genderless and can assume whichever form they want.]]



** ''Skyrim'' further implies that [[spoiler:the player character canonically ultimately became Sheogorath, dropping small hints that he may have been involved with the Dark Brotherhood questline (he mentions a severed head) and Thieves Guild (he mentions a fox).]]

* TheLancer: Uniquely enough for an Elder Scrolls Protagonist. He plays this role to Martin.
* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: Snooping into the game files reveal that his default name is [[http://en.uesp.net/wiki/Oblivion:Bendu_Olo Bendu Olo]], known in the lore as a former Colovian king of Anvil.

* LossOfIdentity: [[spoiler:Tragically. When they assume the Mantle of Sheogorath, they ''become'' Madness, essentially losing all their mortal self (though not their memories, as their dialogue in ''Skyrim'' shows).]]

* VillainProtagonist: Depending on how you play. There's no reason why you can't go around punching everyone you see, and still save the world. And the Dark Brotherhood quest line is very much intended to let the player be a villain. [[spoiler: Might be canon, considering, outside of Martin, he only references the Thieves' Guild and the Dark Brotherhood questlines as Sheogorath.]]

* MythologyGag: Seems to have become one for BethesdaSoftworks, with an identically-voiced {{expy}} named Sticky appearing in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}''. In ''Skyrim'', a passing reference is made to a past Arena Champion [[spoiler:who was murdered by a supposed 'Adoring Fan', in reality a member of the Dark Brotherhood]].

Added DiffLines:

* LaserGuidedKarma: His first quest is murdering an old man, Rufio, in his sleep. [[spoiler: Later on, he orders you to [[ShootTheDog slaughter the entire Cheydinhal Sanctuary]] believing one of them to be the traitor, not caring that two members see him as a [[EvilMentor father figure]] and gives you a scroll allowing to use [[ReforgedIntoAMinion the ghost of Rufio]] [[FateWorseThanDeath as a weapon against them]]. Near the end of the questline he is murdered and tortured by his fellow members of the Black Hand thinking HE is the traitor (they show no remorse or regret about it even after learning of their mistake). ''Skyrim'' then reveals that his ghost has been made into a [[NotSoDifferent 'spectral assassin' for promising members to use as a weapon.]] That the actual traitor was [[DeceptiveDisciple a man he]] [[NiceJobBreakingItHero personnally promoted to]] [[TheDragon Silencer]] [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter despite]] being [[AxCrazy violently insane]] and [[TooDumbToLive Lucien himself having carried out the assassination of the man's mother when he was a child in front of his eyes]] is just cold, dark icing on the poisonous cake.]]

Added DiffLines:

**Indeed, he has very little concern for his own life if he comes with you into the tower and will almost certainly die. The least frustrating method for getting him home alive is to completely avoid him by using a water walking enchantment to cross the lava and avoid the bridge he's on. That way he stays safely on the bridge outside while you close the gate yourself. And the reward for keeping him alive is definitely worth it.

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Like many of the Daedric Princes, Sheogorath does not function under the typical good or evil morality most mortals live under. In particular: Being the Prince of Madness himself, he admires madness in any form and does not care wether said madness becomes dangerous to other people. He also likes to pull pranks on unsuspecting mortals on Nirn, just because he thinks it's fun. Said pranks can really make the victim's live a living hell. However, while this does sound evil, he does really care for the denizens of his realm and tries everything in his power to stop his realm and people from being destroyed during the Greymarch.

%%* BloodKnight

to:

%%* BloodKnight* BloodKnight: He loves fighting as much as any other Dremora.



* LargeHam: Being a Dremora, this is to be expected, [[SubvertedTrope but he's surprisingly subdued]]...[[ZigZaggedTrope sometimes]].

* EverybodysDeadDave: Only a handful of citizen and guards survived the attack. Everybody else is dead, including [[spoiler: [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Jiub]], who was living there at the time, and the Count Ormellius Goldwine, whom the remaining city guards [[ShaggyDogStory were trying to save]].]]

NonActionGuy: He doesn't do much (at least until his [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice]]).



* GetRichQuickScheme: They can easily become this if you solve their quest in the best way possible. If you do, you can sell Vampire Dust to them for exactly 250 gold, which is normally valued at 50 gold, not factoring in Mercantile skill. Add the fact that Vampire Dust is easily found makes it very easy for players to get rich.

* WellIntentionedExtremist: They do genuinely mean well, but the group ([[spoiler:under Seridur's rule]]) is very pragmatic in approach; don't even seem to consider that some vampires aren't compulsive killers, they jump on a lead, no matter how little evidence there is.
