* Sweetrolls are almost impossible to not encounter in Skyrim. Of all things, why would a Bethesda Softworks title, particularly an ''Elder Scrolls'' title have [[VideoGame/{{Fallout3}} Sweetrolls as a food that heals 5 HP]]? Also, some guards when met with eye contact ask "Let me guess, someone stole your sweetroll?".

* While exploring the Soul Cairn in the ''Dawnguard'' DLC, one of the random trapped souls may say, "[[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} Death is but a door, time is but a window. I'll be back.]]"

** The book "Great Harbingers" details several prominent past Harbingers of The Companions. The first non-Nord to assume the illustrious title was a Redguard named "Cirroc the Lofty". Cirroc Lofton, an African-American actor, portrayed Jake Sisko (who, ironically, was not a martially apt character such as a Harbinger like Cirroc would be) in ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine''

* In Winterhold, Nelacar was doing a magical experiment. It ended with the creature turning inside out and then exploding, which could be a reference to either ''Film/GalaxyQuest'' or ''Film/TheFly''.

** The potential follower Erik the Slayer can be overheard complaining to his father, Mralki, that he would rather be adventuring than farming: "But I don't want to be safe! I'm not afraid of the dangers out there. The only thing I'm afraid of is wasting my life on this farm." Mralki replies, "Yes, that's your mother's side of the family talking. [[Film/ANewHope Just stay on for one more season, that's all I ask]]."

* In the quest in which the player (has the option to) obtain the horse Frost, you will also receive Frost's lineage papers. Upon reading said papers, the player will discover - among other things - that Frost's father was Sleipnir. Sleipnir was Odin's horse (and Loki's child) in NorseMythology.

* Although the context of the game makes it make sense, longtime Elder Scrolls fans that are also creepypasta fans might get a fright if the first time they hear "Watch the skies, traveler" is at night, thanks to the famous "Jvk1166z.esp" creepypasta.

It's unlikely Bethesda hasn't heard of it themselves.

* Although it came out after ''Skyrim'', the JossWhedon and Drew Goddard film ''Film/TheCabinInTheWoods'' has been known about for years beforehand, due to a troubled development schedule (filmed in two dimensions, converted into 3D because we did the time warp back to the [=80s=] somehow, and then MGM went bankrupt, leading to the film being shelved for a while). In Skyrim, you can find a book called The Cabin In The Woods. Appropriately, the film itself is made out of shout outs.
