* SpiritualLicensee: Between the medieval/fantasy setting and the demonic invasion, this game is practically a crossover of ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' and ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings''. It was also the closest thing gamers would ever get to a WideOpenSandbox title of the latter series, at least at the time of its release.

* ThatOneBoss: Umbra (the person) is quite possibly the hardest boss in the entire game, she wields the weapon Umbra and wears full Ebony Armor. She deals INSANE amounts of damage and an even worse thing is you have to fight her in a small closed area so you'll easily get stuck in a corner.

* CrossesTheLineTwice: Gogron Gro-Bolmog's story of murdering a five year old girl at her birthday. So horrible, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6S6D46Mp3o yet so funny.]]

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: A common complaint from newer Elder Scrolls fans introduced to the series via Skyrim or Online is that Oblivion's mechanics are much more obtuse than the latter games.

* VindicatedByHistory: While ''Oblivion'' was critically acclaimed on launch, it feel into the usual Bethesda cycle of "Loved on release, disliked by many as flaws become apparent." However, among the older members of the ''Elder Scrolls'' fandom who weren't fond of the changes to ''Skyrim'' that they saw as dumbing down, this game has gotten a re-examining by fans who enjoy it more now.

** {{Fridge|Horror}} {{Squick}}: ''Why exactly'' does your character know the punishment for necrophilia in Cyrodiil off by heart?

* CompleteMonster: Besides Mannimarco (see YMMV/TheElderScrolls), there is [[TheHeavy Mankar Camoran]], the leader of the Mythic Dawn {{cult}} and a worshiper of [[OmnicidalManiac Mehrunes]] [[BigBad Dagon]]. During ''Oblivion'', Mankarís goal is to summon his master into Tamriel so Dagon may destroy the world and create a new one in its place, one that coheres with Camoranís [[SocialDarwinism Social Darwinist beliefs]]. Not only does Mankar aide Dagonís Daedra in attacking the mortal world, he also orchestrates the assassination of Emperor Uriel Septim, as well as his children. He even had the city of Kvatch completely destroyed in a failed attempt to kill Urielís bastard son, Martin. While Mankar lures in his followers with promises of a paradise for their faithful service, this turns out to be a lie. Seemingly idyllic on the surface, Mankarís ďParadiseĒ is really a hell where his followers are constantly killed by monsters, only to be resurrected and killed over and over again. His promise to allow any follower who loses faith to leave his paradise also proves false, as the grotto, which is said to be an exit from the afterlife, really leads to a torture chamber where the unfaithful are [[AndIMustScream made immortal, locked into gibbets, and then dumped into lava]]. One follower who lost faith was forced by Camoran into inflicting this punishment on his friends over and over again. Paradise is said to be Mankarís vision of how he believes the world will be once Dagon takes over.
