* AbsenteeActor:
** There are notably no female Nords, Orcs, or Redguards ''anywhere'' in the Shivering Isles, not even as generic [=NPCs=]. Apparently, Lynda Carter and Gayle Jessup (who respectively voiced the female Nords and Orcs, and female Redguards) weren't available when voice recording for the ''Shivering Isles'' expansion began.
** Also, while most of the males of the ten playable races (barring only the Bretons) have new dialogue recorded for ''Knights of the Nine'', only the females of the Imperial race have new dialogue as well (which is strange, since the female Bretons have the exact same voice actress ''and'' voice type as the female Imperials, yet don't have ''any'' [=KotN=]-related dialogue assigned to them). Some of the plug-ins try to hide this by recycling voice clips from already-existing [=NPCs=] when the appropriate voice actor isn't available for recording, but it's fairly obvious at times when the dialogue was lifted from someplace else in the game.

** Creator/PatrickStewart is Emperor Uriel Septim.
** Creator/SeanBean is Martin Septim.
** [[Main/SupermanII General Zod]] is Mankar Camoran.
** WonderWoman is every female Orc and Nord in the game. And this potentially includes your own character if you choose to play as either of these.
** In the French dubbing, every male Khajiit has the voice of Captain Haddock from the 1990's cartoon adaptation of ''Franchise/{{Tintin}}''.

* TalkingToHimself: An unfortunate side effect of Bethesda's decision to have the game be fully voiced, while hiring only a handful of actors to voice over 1000 characters. It's quite possible you'll be hearing two [=NPCs=] conversing to each other ''with the exact same voice!''
** One VA for all Imperial Males, one VA for all Orc and Nord females, one VA for all Orc and Nord males and so forth.
