* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch: There is a Dark Seducer in Coldharbour who [[spoiler:does not want a mortal to suffer, feeling that he is too noble to even deserve a fate. Considering that Daedra don't even care if another of their kind tries to manipulate mortals, it's quite surprising that one will go out of her own way to help a mortal with nothing to gain.]]

* CloseEnoughTimeline: One quest in the Daggerfall Covenant has you going back in time in order to find out how to defeat a werewolf. [[spoiler:If you decide to alter history by finding the lover of the guy you took over, once you get back to your proper time, the mage that made it possible is now a female and there is now a living descendant of the the man you possessed and the ghost woman but otherwise everything stays the same.]]

* NotSiDifferent: When you think about it, each of the three alliance leaders have very similar backgrounds. All three traveled across Tamriel before becoming rulers (Ayrenn was an adventurer, Emeric was a caravan guard, and Jorunn was a traveling skald) and something unexpected caused their rise of power and the creation of their faction (Ayrenn returned and claim her birthright after her father's death and brought her two adventurer companions to help, Emeric married Maraya instead Rayelle and created a trade alliance with Hammerfell and the Orcs, the death of Jorunn's sister and mother during an Akiviri invasion made him next in line as Skyrim's High King and teamed up with the Dunmer and Argonians to drive them away).

''Franchise/TheElderScrolls Online'' is an MMORPG developed by Zenimax Online Studios. Taking place in the Second Era roughly 1,000 years before the events of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', you play as a hero attempting to stop the Daedric Prince [[BigBad Molag Bal]] from taking over Tamriel and recovering your soul that was taken by him. Things are also complicated by the fact that the Imperial throne has sided with the evil Prince, and now Tamriel is in an all-out war between Cyrodiil and three alliances vying for control of it.

* CommonplaceRare: Clothes. And, no, we don't mean light armor, we mean the clothes you see worn by most of the townsfolk. You can only obtain articles of common clothing by stealing them from containers and then paying fences to (''[[AccidentalPun snirk]]'') launder them.



* CosmeticAward: Completing most achievements will net you a new dye color. If you obtain certain veteran rank levels, you will unlock a special costume to wear, and you will earn the Emperor's Regalia if you become Emperor. There is also a dungeon that gives you a Dwemer Spider vanity pet as a reward.

* FantasticRacism: The game is riddled with it. The Ebonheart Pact consists of the [[OurElvesAreBetter Dunmer]] and the two races that were their worst enemies before the [[EnemyMine Akaviri Invasion]]. The Veiled Heritance in the [[AntiHumanAlliance Aldmeri Dominion]] see the [[OurElvesAreBetter Bosmer]] and [[{{Catfolk}} Khajiit]] as lesser races (although they seem to hate every other race just as much). Many human members of the Daggerfall Covenant still struggle to accept that the [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orcs]] are a sentient race. Those are just a few examples. Needless to say, most characters despise races from the other alliances.

** It's also worth noting that picking any lock the first time on a character reveals the [[BlatantBurglar Legerdemain]] skill line, which helps you [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking pick locks, pockets, bribe guards, and sneak around a little bit better]].
