* One sneaky leveling trick is to find the Shrine of Peryite but not do his quest. When you find it, his followers are all standing around frozen in place, their souls having been trapped in Oblivion. However, they are still counted as active [[NonPlayerCharacter NPCs]], but don't take health damage. This makes them perfect training dummies that you can [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential shoot full of arrows, set on fire and hack at with a sword all day long until you've maxed out your skills]].
* Not sure if it's a glitch or not, but this troper once played through the Dark Brotherhood questline, and upon reaching "Whodunnit?" he witnessed something as stupid as it was hilarious: He was engaged in a conversation with one of the [[NonPlayerCharacter NPCs]], asked him about the rich one of the bunch (who was also standing right behind said NPC), and the NPC told him that he [[BlatantLies really hoped the rich one would not come to harm]], as the troper just murdered his first victim. He then ends the converstaion... only for the NPC to kill the NPC he just talked about with two punches. Of course, seeing that that eliminated the remaining witness, the NPC followed him suit into the afterlife... [[RewardedAsATraitorDeserves Rewarded as a traitor deserves]] is the only way to describe it. Well, that, and [[ComedicSociopathy Comedic Sociopathy]] at its finest.

** It's even funnier if you do it during the later half of the Shivering Isles story; Sheogorath or Haskill [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything will lampshade]] how you're [[SkewedPriorities screwing]] [[TakeYourTime around]] like this when Jyygalag and his army are on your doorstep in the Isles.

* In the Shivering Isles, if you kill people in the main city, [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything they get their own unique grave in the graveyard]]. Almost all of said graves have [[GraveHumor hilariously snarky comments]].

* In the Shivering Isles expansion, you can encounter Hirrus Clutumnus, who tells you that he wants to end his life. However, [[ICannotSelfTerminate he can't actually kill himself]], otherwise his spirit will end up trapped on the Hill of Suicides, so naturally he asks you to do it. Fortunately, he happens to visit a balcony without railings, and you have the dialogue option of pushing him off. The best part is the [[Unusually Uninteresting Sight total non-reaction of the Dark Seducer who sees the whole thing happen]]. Apparently, this sort of thing happens all the time...
