* EveryoneIsBi: Dementia blacksmith Cutter will become a bit flirty with your character upon becoming Sheogorath, regardless of gender.

** The higher your level, the worse these become, to the point of FakeDifficulty. While monsters will level, and even get replaced by classes of newer and more powerful monsters, the people you escort... don't.

** The higher your level, the worse these become, to the point of FakeDifficulty. While monsters will level, and even get replaced by classes of newer and more powerful monsters, the people you escort... don't. Only essential characters are make things easier, as they don't die when the overpowered monsters beat on them. You still have to kill everything and then wait for them to wake up to push forward into another fight ad nauseum.

** The Mages Guild quest "Liberation or Apprehension?" thankfully subverts this. You are meant to escort your fellow mage Fithragaer and find Mucianus Allias and bring them back. The former will most likely get killed by a huge trap that pushes the floor up to a spike ceiling and the latter [[spoiler:is worse then dead.]] All you have to do is explore the ruins, fight some monsters, grab some loot, and further the subplot.



* SmashingHallwayTrapsOfDoom: Lots of these, mostly in various Ayleid Ruins such as Nenyond Twyll. In the Mages Guild mission "Liberation or Apprehension?", Fithragaer, the NPC you're (meant to be) escorting charges straight into one and dies instantly. If he doesn't he'll just stand there, just in front of the trap as being trapped in the ruins broke his tiny Bosmer brain. When the quest is done, he'll walk slowly to the exit and will most likely die for real this time.



* TeamPet: The Dark Brotherhood Cheydinhal sanctuary has Schemer the rat, the blue team at the Arena has Porkchop the boar, The Anvil branch of the Fighter's Guild has a dog called Mojo, and Anvil's Mage Guild has an imp called Sparky.

Added DiffLines:

** The enemies only focus on attacking a single target and hardly ever switch targets. That is, when they attack you and you turn invisible and have your allies aid you, the enemies will stand there and look for you, instead of fighting back your allies.

Added DiffLines:

* ConspiracyTheorist:
** A sidequest concerns a Bosmer named Glarthir who is convinced that several people in town are involved in a conspiracy against him, and wants the player to help him find proof.
** This is apparently a VERY common trait with the Dukes and Duchesses of Dementia in ''Shivering Isles''.

* LegacyCharacter: One of the characters you meet is a Redguard named Cyrus. Presumably, the Cyrus from the game ''Redguard'' has long passed on in the past just-over-400 years.

* NiceGuy: The Guards. Really, guards in Oblivion are a lovely bunch of polite, helpful guys. Just... Try not to [[BerserkButton break the law]] in their presence.

** Glenroy the Blade, also met in the prologue. He's very distrustful and rude of the player and at one point suggests killing you just in case you are working with the assassins.

to:

** Glenroy the Blade, also met in the prologue. He's very distrustful and rude of the player and at one point suggests killing you just in case you are working with the assassins. Then again, the Emperor's life ''is'' in danger, Glenroy knows nothing about the assassins (which means the player could really be one of them) and the source of the Emperor's trust in the Champion are the dreams of an 87 years old man. [[ProperlyParanoid Even though the Champion is not an assassin, they still end up killing the Emperor while Glenroy himself dies trying to protect him]]
