** One of the many quests involving the retrieval of an artifact from a ruin is called "[[Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk Nothing You Canan Possess.]]" You might be able to guess how things play out.
** The quest called "[[Literature/TheShadowOverInnsmouth A Shadow Over Hackdirt]]", which involves you going into a [[TownWithADarkSecret rundown and very much xenophobic village]] with suspicious residents who worship something called "[[CthulhuMythos The Brethrens]]" and turns out to make human sacrifices. Heck, you even find a [[FanNickname Cthulhu]] [[TomeOfEldritchLore Bible]].

Added DiffLines:

* GameGourmet: Downplayed. Food items (both real and fantastical) are present in the game and can be eaten directly for mild effects (mostly Restore Stamina). They are treated as standard [[AlchemyIsMagic alchemical ingredients]] and can be used to make potions with various effects.

Added DiffLines:

* CollectorOfTheStrange: As you might expect, the ''Shivering Isles'' expansion contains a few characters who have collections to match their respective obsessions. The player can also go on a quest to enlarge the collection in the Museum of Oddities.

** Mirabelle Monet, a promiscuous innkeeper in Anvil, sleeps with each of her patrons on different nights of the week, including the one female tenant. However, the player can't rent a room from her, as she reserves her beds for seamen.

The game spawned a huge and dedicated modding community that still continues to churn out content. These mods range from new items to complete overhauls of the game. For mods with their own trope pages, see ''VideoGame/IntegrationTheStrandedLight'' and ''{{Nehrim}}''. For other recommended mods, see [[OblivionRecommendedMods this page]].

Added DiffLines:

* FairPlayWhodunit: One quest has you investigating who stole a precious painting from the Countess of Chorrol. All of the clues you need to find the culprit are available, and indeed have to be found to complete the mission with the maximum reward. However, even before you've found the pieces of evidence, there's a giveaway clue that lets you solve the case earlier: [[spoiler: three of the four suspects' alibis refer to the rain outside the castle the night of the theft, while the fourth--and the guilty party--mentions that she was making star charts, which would have been impossible during a cloudy storm.]]

** Mankar Camoran's followers give their lives to defend his cause and end up in his Paradise, which looks like a forested paradise... [[spoiler: but it isn't. They're essentially trapped in a fiery Hell, being killed over and over and OVER again, and will never be free from the cycle until you kill their leader.]]
** Mehrunes Dagon ''himself'' is stuck in this situation. As the Daedric Prince of Destruction, his only purpose in life is to kill, maim, and obliterate everything in his path. The problem? He's stuck in his own plane of Oblivion, where ''nothing can be killed permanently.'' No matter what he does, Dagon can't permanently kill Daedra or anything generated within his plane, essentially rendering him powerless in his own kingdom. That's why he's so eager to get to Cyrodil: that way, the Prince of Destruction can actually, you know, ''destroy'' things.

** [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything The dev team]] actually programmed racism into the engine; every character has a setting for how much they like or dislike characters of a certain race. This doesn't normally appear in the game because the settings on most characters are insanely high. The mod Race Balancing Project actually tinkers with these settings, to make races that don't like each other act more snarky towards each other than the defaults.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: If you go to the Shrine of Sheogorath after [[spoiler: completing the Shivering Isles main quest and so becoming Sheogorath]], the quest briefing will be by Haskill instead of Sheogorath, and he'll even comment on the eccentricity of [[spoiler: worshipping yourself]].
** There's actually unique pieces of dialogue for this quest depending on which quest you are currently engaged in the Shivering Isles. It ranges from Sheogorath pondering why his Champion is outside the realm before he even assigned them to do anything, to scolding the player while his Realm is in danger from [[spoiler:the Forces of Order]]. Of course he decides there's always a bit of time for some fun anyway.
--->''"This hardly seems the time to summon me. Not when [[spoiler:Order]] is busy invading My Realm. You mortals are just a hoot. I hate hoots."''
** In one of the Thieves Guild quests, your contact (a Khajiit) sends you to find a member of the Guild that's gone missing. When you return and tell her that he's dead, she responds by flattening her ears in distress, just like a cat!
