** If you jump at just the right moment when running up a set of steps you bug out the physics engine and ramp it, if your athleticism is high enough, or if you say... drink 3 bottles of skooma to give you the effect instead... then ramp... you go flying through the air, while this ''can'' get you trapped outside the citie's walls if you're not cautious, it can also be used to beat the main game for the low low price of stealing a few bottles of skooma.(This is done by using the ramping to get on top of the buildings in the Imperial City, Temple districts, then jumping onto the main mbuilding, which has no collision as it isn't otherwise reachable. There's a door there that leads to the invaded version of the city, head through it, the turn back around and watch a scene play... Tadah! You beat the game... at level 1.)

* HarsherInHindsight: Seeing Archmage Traven give a little speech to the PC [[spoiler:before he performs his HeroicSacrifice]] makes it even sadder knowing that his voice actor died years later.

* DesignatedHero: If you think about, Traven's ''not'' a very good Archmage. His very first act upon taking the position is completely outlawing Necromancy in Cyrodiil after centuries of it being tolerated and he expelled and blacklisted ''over half'' of the Council when they protested. He forces the Arcane University, one of the greatest learning centers in Tamriel, to close its doors to all but the highest ranking guildmembers, which completely contradicts the guild's original purpose. He's made the guild sever ties with any organization that so much as ''tolerates'' necromancy, putting a serious strain on both manpower and resources. Finally, the main reason he seems to hate necromancy is because it involves stealing the souls of living beings, but it's explicitly stated that they didn't start doing this until ''after'' Traven's draconian policies came into effect. There is no denying that Mannimarco is evil, but it's all but stated that the only reason his Order has become so powerful is because Traven's actions allowed his ranks to become bolstered by hundreds of disgruntled mages. As stated above, this is why the Guild fell to both the strong anti-magic sentiment that arose after the "Oblivion Crisis" and the Thalmor in the centuries between ''Oblivion'' and ''Skyrim''. If it makes anyone feel better, Traven helps you to stop Mannimarco by trapping his soul into the Order of the Black Worm's giant soul gem to protect you and is most likely trapped in the Soul Cairn and must suffer for it.

* Not to mention that, y'know... Your character actually knows ''what'' the fine for necrophilia is in Cyrodiil. ''And you start the game in prison...''

* Narm: The random conversations between npc's can sometimes become this. A good example is when they suddenly start talking about mudcrabs and how ugly they are.

** [[PointyHairedBoss Jeanne Frasoric]]. The friendly and nice guild mistress of Bruma, who can barely be called "sorcerer" let along "mage" . She seems to only be there because of her social skills. She dies in "A Plot Reveled" but whether or not you feel sorry for her is up to how you see her.



** Mannimarco because of his VillainDecay.

** Mannimarco because of his VillainDecay. The mod "Mannimarco Revisited" makes him much more fearsome as does ''[[VideoGame/THeElderScrollsOnline Online]]''.
