** Some characters have a bad habit of forgetting they need to unlock a store's front door in the morning, even if they have the appropriate key and locked it the night before. Others will end up [[SuicidalOverconfidence trying to pick fights with]] ''[[TooDumbToLive daedra]]'' [[TooDumbToLive who just spawned from an Oblivion portal]].

** As another page on this very site points out, 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, everything always grows back/repairs itself/revives, 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 .

** Speaking of Daedric princes, [[spoiler: Jyggalag and Sheogorath]] suffered this. The other Princes, fearful and envious of [[spoiler: the former's power of Order and growing influence]], combined their own abilities to [[spoiler: transform him into the exact opposite of his aspect--namely, Madness.]] To make matters worse, they deliberately eradicated the victims' memory of this, trapping them in an endless cycle [[spoiler: wherein Sheogorath senses the forces of Order are coming, prepares for them, remembers that ''he himself'' is Jyggalag, and transforms briefly, only for the whole routine to start up again]]. It isn't until the Player Character comes along and [[spoiler: defeats Jyggalag in battle]] that the spell is lifted, [[spoiler: allowing him to return to his former self.]]
** The Gray Fox [[spoiler: or, in his true identity, the Count of Anvil]] stole the Cowl of Nocturnal from Nocturnal herself. As a Daedric Prince, she cursed the cowl to literally eradicate its user from history, meaning that no one can remember who he really is or even his own name. He's trapped in a world of people who can never know anything about him, rendering him unable to form permanent connections [[spoiler: and separating him from his wife--he could ''stand in front of her'' and she wouldn't be able to recognize him.]] The Gray Fox [[EarnYourHappyEnding earns his happy ending]] when, with the player's help, he figures out how to break the curse and finally rejoins the world.

** 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.]]

*** That's not enough to spare the villagers, though--even if ''you'' leave, the people who come on the mission with you don't, and end up killing everyone.

** The French version has is bad either, with unvoiced bits of dialogues, some texts or names that are left in English, or some names that the translators got ''completely wrong'', such as a scale (the tool used to measure weights) being translated as "écailles" (which is indeed the proper translation for "scales"... As in, "the scales of a reptile"), or an enchanted axe being called a "sword". Some names were also shortened due to their length once translated, leaving us with things such as a ''Scroll of Absorb Magicka'' becoming a "Roul. Absorb. Mag."
