Notably, this was [[MemeAcknowledgement acknowledged]] by Bethesda at E3 2018, with them jokingly announcing Skyrim Very Special Edition for the Amazon Alexa, Etch-a-Sketch, Motorola pager, and Samsung smart refrigerator.[[/labelnote]]

Added DiffLines:

* "C0da makes it canon." [[labelnote:Explanation]]C0da, a comic written by michael kirkbride, was about, [[MindScrew among other things]], the nature of elder scrolls canon, in that it is deliberately contradictory and open to the interpretation of the community, particularly in the matter of fanfiction. The [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs absurdity of the comic]] leads many to use this phrase as a response to shitposts and memes. [[/labelnote]]

to:

* "With this character's death, the thread of prophecy is severed. Restore a saved game to restore the weave of fate, or persist in the doomed world you have created." [[labelnote:Explanation]]A message you get if [[OffTheRails you kill a character who's essential to the plot]]. ''Morrowind'' [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness didn't have]] "essential" NPC [[PlotArmor protection]], so you could very easily kill someone you weren't meant to and get this message ''a lot''.[[/labelnote]]

* Fishy Sticks [[labelnote:Explanation]]A forum in-joke that's referenced OncePerEpisode. Basically, it's tradition to give newcomers to the official forum a "fishy stick" in the form of [[http://en.m.uesp.net/wiki/File:Fishystick.jpg this image]]. Bethesda was amused by it and has thrown in various in-game references.[[/labelnote]]




to:

* The Lusty Argonian Maid [[labelnote:Explanation]]One of the in-game books is a SoBadItsGood excerpt from a [[StylisticSuck cheesy]] pornographic play by resident ChivalrousPervert Crassius Curio. It was so popular with fans that it's been included in every game since.[[/labelnote]]


Added DiffLines:

* "Then I stripped the corpse naked and threw it in the river" [[labelnote:Explanation]]The standard ending to any story involving bandits, Thalmor agents, or anyone else a player fights. In some cases, it's actually become custom for dealing with dead NPC characters who don't disappear after being murdered, as for many it essentially becomes a funeral.[[/labelnote]]
* "'''A NEW HAND TOUCHES THE BEACON'''" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Picking up Meridia's Beacon automatically triggers both her quest and a ''[[LargeHam loud]]'', sudden voiceover from her, ordering you to go to her temple. The beacon is spawned in a randomly chosen boss chest, making it near inevitable that you'll unwittingly pick it up [[MoodWhiplash in the middle of a different, far more important quest]]. This has made it a popular InterruptingMeme.[[/labelnote]]

Added DiffLines:

* You cannot fast travel when enemies are nearby. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A great source of aggravation for players attempting to travel to another location, especially as, more often than not, it's caused by a Slaughterfish in a nearby brook that the player can't even see to kill. That, or they've randomly encountered a dragon, ''again''.[[/labelnote]]

to:

* "Oblivion dialogue in a nutshell" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Comedic YouTube videos making fun of the aforementioned ArtificialAtmosphericActions by setting [[DullSurprise awkward dialogue]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GB3sOf9_nDM from movies, tv shows and other sources to Oblivion music.]] [[/labelnote]]

* I'll just create a new character with a fresh playstyle...''And'' I'm a Stealth Archer again. [[labelnote:Explanation]]''Skryim'' overhauled the Stealth system which has been in place since the series' inception, taking it from near UselessUsefulStealth levels and buffing it to damn near GameBreaker levels. At high skill levels and with the right perks, it becomes difficult for [=NPCs=] to detect you at all, which added to the [[BackStab stealth combat enhancements]] the game brings, makes it a devastating CriticalHitClass. As such, players attempting to create new characters with different playstyles often [[ComplacentGamingSyndrome find themselves drawn back into being Stealth Archers]]. Meme examples: [[https://i.imgur.com/YFPeX5t.png here]] and [[https://i.imgur.com/6vXDTsz.png here]].[[/labelnote]]
