* UnPerson: Putting on [[spoiler: the Gray Cowl of Nocturnal]] makes the wearer one. To clarify, the [[spoiler: cowl actually removes all traces of the wearer from the memory of reality itself. In other words, reality freaking forgets that you exist once you put in on.]]

* UnPerson: Putting on [[spoiler: the Gray Cowl of Nocturnal]] makes the wearer one. To clarify, the [[spoiler: cowl actually removes all traces of the wearer from the memory of reality itself. In other words, reality freaking forgets that you exist once you put in on. This was a curse put on the cowl by its original owner, Nocturnal, as punishment for its theft. It's revealed at the end of the Thieves Guild questline that the Gray Fox's ultimate goal was to obtain an Elder Scroll so he could rewrite history and undo the curse. Afterwards you're given the cowl as a reward, with the effect still intact. Thankfully your identity is restored whenever you take it off.]]

Removing two examples that are from mods only and not the actual game.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: In the immensely popular mod "The Lost Spires", [[spoiler:Kal Rythor could very well have succeeded in summoning [[GodOfEvil Zyyr]] ''if'' he hadn't given his pendant to the PC in exchange for one of the {{Plot Coupon}}s.]]

* StableTimeLoop: According to the game mod Knights Of The Nine Revelations, [[spoiler: the prophet wasn't waiting for a random hero of a noble heart to take up the quest... he was waiting specifically for YOU to come along, because you had traveled back to the first era and met more than a few people, who knew you were from the future. And that statue of the divine crusader you come across in a hidden chamber of an old ruin? That's your petrified body, waiting to awaken in the modern day because they had no other way to get you home.]]

* BlessedAreTheCheesemakers: ** Sheogorath's classic line: "Wonderful, time for a celebration! Cheese for everyone!" ** "Uuras the Shepherd sure takes care of his sheep. And boy, does he like cheese! I mean, he ''really'' likes cheese."

* IfYoureSoEvilEatThisKitten: The final step to being initiated into the Mythic Dawn is to murder a prisoner as as sacrifice to Mehrunes Dagon. [[spoiler:If you try to infiltrate them, you'll be presented with an Argonian they've captured. It's up to you if you want to save him and blow your cover, or [[ShootTheDog kill him to keep the ruse]].]]

* IfYoureSoEvilEatThisKitten: The final step ImperfectRitual: In one questline, Umbacano, a collector of Ayleid artefacts, asks you to being initiated aquire an Ayleid Crown of Nenelata that is in the possession of a rival collector; the second collector refuses to sell, but suggests that an Ayleid Crown from Lindai might be similar enough to fool Umbacano. Whichever crown you give him, Umbacano reveals that he wants to use it as a component in a ritual. If he has the Nenelata crown, the ritual will turn him into a lich, but if he has the Mythic Dawn is to murder a prisoner as as sacrifice to Mehrunes Dagon.

* LevelScaling: Oblivion's system has you constantly MinMaxing just to survive. Needless to say, it's not well liked. ** One side effect is that after a while, common bandits are wearing armor that's so expensive that [[CutLexLuthorACheck they should just sell it and retire]].

* GameMod: Enough of them to build several whole new games. In fact, several mods are there for ''just that purpose''. Sadly, SturgeonsLaw is in effect for many of them, and they're only useful if you run the PC version- console players are out of luck if they want to use these mods.

* StuckItems: The game won't allow you to drop quest essential items. This is to prevent you from making a quest {{Unwinnable}} by losing quest-essential items. Also, said items are weightless. Unfortunately many items will not properly have the "undroppable" tag removed long after they are no longer needed and at least once (Molag Bal's quest) [[UnwinnableByMistake an item that needs to be dropped to complete a quest may get flaged as undroppable]]. Most of these are unfixed as of the last official patch, requiring fan-made patches to fix (If you are on a console, well, sucks to be you).

The game has spawned a huge and dedicated modding community that still continues to churn out content rapidly. These mods range from new items to complete overhauls of the game.

** Countess Alessia Caro despises the beast races. Her speech towards you if you play a Khajit or Argonian barely even tries to disguise this. [[spoiler:She also has a secret TortureCellar made specifically for Argonians]]. [[VideogameCrueltyPotential Which makes it so]] [[KickTheSonOfABitch much fun to kill her]] [[AssholeVictim over and over again.]]
