* BrokenBase: Daggerfall is a mixed bag. It's glitchy like you wouldn't believe, but the good parts are really good, especially for its time.

* CompleteMonster:
** [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen Akorithi]] of Sentinel, like her late husband King Cameron, was a warmonger. Their designated-heir son was chronically ill and fairly uninterested in invading neighboring countries for their land, the latter of which was the kind of thing his parents liked doing when they could get away with it. Not only did they produce some more children and partially disinherited him, his interest in scholarly pursuits hit King Cameron's BerserkButton, so he and Akorithi [[OffingTheOffspring murdered him]] by tossing him into a dungeon full of zombies and mummies just after a bad bout of the flu. By the end of ''Daggerfall'', Queen Akorithi has used the power of the Numidium to conquer Bergama as well as the whole of northern Hammerfell. She dies of a plague not long afterwards.
** Mannimarco, the King of Worms and the leader of the Order of the Black Worm, first appears in ''Daggerfall'', then appears again as the ArcVillain of the Mages’ Guild quest line in ''Oblivion''. An incredibly powerful necromancer and the world's first lich, Mannimarco’s study into the arts of entrapping and enslaving souls festered in him a deep hatred for peace and life. A sadist believing himself AboveGoodAndEvil, Mannimarco sought out obtaining as much magical and political power as he could over the passing millennia. Sometimes this power was obtained via [[DealWithTheDevil Faustian deals]]; in at least one instance he helped a princess arrange a political marriage in exchange for her firstborn child. After achieving godhood at the end of ''Daggerfall'', a mortal part of Mannimarco was left behind, and decided to settle a petty grudge with a long-dead enemy by destroying the Mages’ Guild said enemy founded. Mannimarco became invested in creating black soul gems, which he used to [[YourSoulIsMine steal the souls of those who opposed him]], and plotted to capture the soul of Archmage Hannibal Traven to empower himself. [[AndIMustScream The souls captured are aware while in the gems]], and, once their power is used up, they are sent to a purgatory-like dimension called the Soul Cairn for all eternity. When a mage infiltrated his order, he had the mage tortured to death and then resurrected the mage as a zombie to be an example to the Guild. Mannimarco also took great pleasure in leading the attack on the Bruma Mages’ Guild chapter, slaughtering everyone present save for one mage whom he kept alive to tell tale of what happened in Bruma.

** Werewolves may seem like the best thing ever (Overpowers speed and stamina and attack) but if you spend too long in a dungeon, or even fast travel to a dungeon at a great enough distance. Your stats will eventually plummet to zero making most monsters able to 1-hit KO you. Of course you could just fast travel to a nearby town, then return to the dungeon. Except that massively cuts into your time limit. The ''Ring of Hircine'' fixes this however, [[GameBreaker so there are essentially no drawbacks to lycanthropy if you have said ring.]]

** This mechanic was introduced by a patch in an attempt to 'balance' overpowered magical items, but proved unpopular enough that methods to repair the items was re-implemented in a later patch.
