* MagicKnight: Most games include a few player classes that mix both martial and magical skill specializations. The best example is probably the Battlemage, a heavily-armored warrior equally comfortable with spells and blades.

* OtherworldlyAndSexuallyAmbiguous: While all of the Daedra princes (a loose analog of Demon Lords And Archdevils, only with Blue And Orange Morality) lack a default sex, most do appear consistently as one specific sex. Exceptions are Boethiah, who seems switch between genders at will, and Mephala, who has been described as being a hermaphrodite (as was her "anticipation" in ''Morrowind'', Vivec.)

** Between each Amaranth is the Dreamsleeve. This is basically a roiling foam of pure information. When someone dies in the Elder Scrolls universe (and their soul is not otherwise claimed by a Daedra or something) their soul returns to the Dreamsleeve to be returned back to the chaotic mass it came from, and eventually reborn as a different being.

When someone dies in the Elder Scrolls universe (and their soul is not otherwise claimed by a Daedra or something) their soul - or rather, the information that makes up their identity - returns to the Dreamsleeve to be and is broken up and returned back to the chaotic mass it came from, from. Eventually, Anu (or another Amaranth) will combine bits and eventually pieces into a new identity, attach it to a soul, and send it back to be reborn as into a different being.new person.

** The Aurbis is divided into Aetherius, Mundus, and Oblivion. Aetherius is basically pure magicka, and also where the first immortal souls that would become the gods, Daedra, mortals, etc. came from.

Added Mind Screw entry (dear God that was hard to write up)
Added DiffLines:
* MindScrew: The Elder Scrolls cosmology is ''very'' hard to wrap one's head around. This information may be incorrect, but so far the structure seems to be: ** At the top level, ''everything ever'' exists only as a dream within some utterly unknowable entity called the Godhead. Within the Godhead, there exist multiple ''sub-dreams'' known as Amaranths, each separate, but connected in some ways. ** Between each Amaranth is the Dreamsleeve. This is basically a roiling foam of pure information. When someone dies in the Elder Scrolls universe (and their soul is not otherwise claimed by a Daedra or something) their soul returns to the Dreamsleeve to be returned back to the chaotic mass it came from, and eventually reborn as a different being. ** Back to the Amaranth. Within the one we care about, there was Anu and Padomay, which are the actual ''concepts'' of stasis and change, respectively. Their derived souls, Anui-El and Sithis were a bit more active, and the interplay between them created the Aurbis (aka, the Universe.) ** The Aurbis is divided into Aetherius, Mundus, and Oblivion. Aetherius is basically pure magicka, and also where the first immortal souls that would become the gods, Daedra, mortals, etc. came from. ** Within Aetherius are Mundus and Oblivion. Oblivion is where the Daedra (who refused to be part of creation) hang out. They each carved out infinite plane(t)s within the void that they rule over completely. ** Mundus is where things get a tiny bit more [[IncrediblyLamePun mundane]]. Mundus is where the spirit Lorkhan convinced (or tricked; Elves and Men [[BrokenBase have their own opinion]]) other spirits (called et'Ada) into giving up their power to create the mortal world, Nirn. These spirits became the Aedra, and eight of them are currently worshiped by the Empire. Some of the et'Ada said [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere "screw this"]] and bailed, punching holes within the inner sphere of Mundus, which created the sun and stars. Others gave up all their power and became the Ehlnofey, or Earthbones (aka the laws of nature/physics, such as they exist.) At some point Lorkhan was killed and his heart was thrown to Nirn, where it landed in Tamriel and became Red Mountain, [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind but that's a story for another time]]. ** And of course at the bottom, you have the planet Nirn, which contains Tamriel. As seen in the games, this is the most ''normal'' place in the universe (at least if you don't dig far enough into the lore.) A group of Elves (the Thalmor) is rather mad that their once immortal spirits were duped by Lorkhan and forced to wear stupid mortal flesh suits though, [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim so they're looking to fix that issue by ending the world]].

* InfiniteStockForSale: Shopkeepers have a limited inventory (although they might sell infinite amounts of some very basic items). In fact many have a limited amount of gold when selling (meaning you might have to barter a bit when selling a valuable item).

* TimeCrash: Happen during events known as "Dragon Breaks," with a dash of RealityBreakingParadox also thrown in. They're known as "Dragon Breaks" because the dragon-god of time, known by many names but most prominently as Akatosh, is "tampered with" so to speak. A few prominent prominent examples of this happening: ** In the first era, a remnant of a once-powerful organization of [[FantasticRacism anti-elf inquisitors]] carried out a ritual in attempt to purge Akatosh of the elven aspects of the mythological basis that Akatosh was based on, the elven golden eagle god Auri-El. The effort proceeded to break Time for a period of a bit over 1000 years. How could they measure how long that period was? The Khajiit, a cat-like race on Tamriel whose mythology was heavily steeped in the two moons, used those as a basis for time. (The moons are the "rotting corpse" of the dead creator god of the ES universe, and thus were unaffected.) ** The Numidium, a [[HumongousMecha giant brass golem]] built by the Dwemer and powered by the Heart of Lorkhan, the dead creator god, was essentially their refutation of the gods made material. Because of this, it frequently caused these when activated, such as the temporal toxic waste dump in Elsweyr where Tiber Septim's mages tried to figure it out after the Dunmer Tribunal gave it to him as a tribute, or the Warp In The West, where all the endings in Daggerfall essentially simultaneously happened and the temporal paradox was so straining on reality that a nuclear-like explosion occurred. Oh, and, during one part of the process, the Dwemer did... something that apparently pissed off reality, ending with their entire raced completely wiped from existence while keeping everything else intact. ** The Scrolls themselves can cause a mild version of this depending on who reads them. Someone who is completely untrained in the history and nature of the Scrolls just sees the page picture for the main Elder Scrolls page. Someone with slight training is struck blind immediately. People with great training (e.g. members of the Cult of the Ancestor Moth) gradually go blind as they read more of the scrolls. Then we have the Dovahkiin in Skyrim. Dragonborn are mortals with the soul of a dragon, and dragons exist outside of time. Reading the Scroll you obtain as part of Skyrim's main quest results in being momentarily blinded, then recovering.

* CuttingOffTheBranches[=/=]MergingTheBranches: Done at the end of Daggerfall in regards to The Warp in the West, making all but one out of Daggerfall's seven endings canon at the same time, regardless of contradiction. Also If they ever make an Elder Scrolls VI, this will be an issue. As there is no canon winner of the civil war. And whichever side they do chose will heavily divide the fanbase.
