%%PLEASE, REMEMBER: Memes that don't explain where they came from will be deleted. Even if you think it's self explanatory, there are people who will not get it. There is no such thing as a universal meme.
----
!!Please add entries in the following format:
* The name of the video game or company.
** The meme. [=[[=]labelnote:Explanation[=]]=]The explanation behind the meme, if necessary.[=[[=]/labelnote[=]]=] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Like this.[[/labelnote]]
** Further mutations and successor memes, if any.
----
!! Recurring:
* [=[=]remain silent[=]=][[labelnote:Explanation]]The Dark Brotherhood quests in Oblivion and Skyrim often give you the option to not say anything in response to an NPC's dialogue. The NPC will react accordingly.[[/labelnote]]
----
!! ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]:''
* HALTHALTHALTHALTHALTHALTHALTHALTHALTHALTHALT! [[labelnote:Explanation]]City guards cry "Halt!" while chasing you. Committing a crime will result in ''a lot'' of city guards chasing you.[[/labelnote]]

!! ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]:''
* Game of the Year. All Years.[[labelnote:Explanation]]The Game of the Year edition of the game is still being sold in stores to this day, so people ran with it. [[/labelnote]]
* YOU N'WAH! FILTHY S'WIT! DIE, FETCHER! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Insults Dark Elves would use in battle. They stick out due to the frequency you'll hear them along with the fact that they're made up curse words. Carried over into later games.[[/labelnote]]
* We're watching you, '''scum'''.[[labelnote:Explanation]]A classic "greeting" used by Ordinators. [[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkdR1X0V7sI The Morrowind Strut.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The odd walking animation, which spawned several youtube videos. There is even a mod for "Shoes of Extravagant Swag" which will play 'Stayin' Alive' when the player character walks in them.[[/labelnote]]

!! ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]:''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_2Jduxc2P8 STOP! YOU VIOLATED THE LAW!]] Pay the court a fine or serve your sentence! Your stolen goods are now forfeit!
** STOP RIGHT THERE, CRIMINAL SCUM! No one breaks the law on ''my'' watch! I'm confiscating your stolen goods. Now pay your fine or it's off to jail. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Both lines said by the [[CityGuards Imperial Guardsmen]] when they catch you after you committed a crime.[[/labelnote]]
* BY THE NINE DIVINES! THERE'S BEEN A '''MURDER'''! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Often said directly after you kill someone and take about two steps away from the corpse.[[/labelnote]]
* Similarly: "The body is still warm." This is another line guards say upon finding a dead body, which they will often say just after they kill someone themselves.
* BY AZURA! BY AZURA! ''BY AZURA!!'' IT'S THE GRAND CHAMPION!
** Also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQven3ENjXA killing]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0stLp4b83Yo the Adoring Fan]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypXMAIL0p5w in unusual]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEcnZCceZ0M ways]].
* I heard the Fighters' Guild is recruiting again.
* I saw a mud crab the other day.
** Loathsome things, I hate them.
** Did you steer well clear of it?
** [[ArtificialAtmosphericActions Goodbye]].
* "[[LargeHam CHEESE! FOR EVERYONE!]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]One of Sheogorath's lines when you successfully complete a quest for him. He's a fairly MadGod ("Wait, scratch that! Cheese for no-one! That can be just as much as a celebration, if you don't like cheese. True?").[[/labelnote]]
* Powdered deer penis. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Weebam-Na lists off the menu of a failed restaurant, ending the list with "Rat ragu with powdered deer penis." Fans were quick to make the "penis" part of the line a meme.[[/labelnote]]

!! ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]:''
* "... then, I [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vncIBREXCwU took an arrow in the knee]]." [[labelnote:Explanation]]The guards of major settlements tend to say [[WelcomeToCorneria "I used to be an adventurer like you, then I took an arrow in the knee."]] quite a lot. This has been exploited.[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSDfxde8fSg People are getting tired of it]].
* FUS RO DAH! [[labelnote:Explanation]]A shout used to send [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential just about anything]] [[BlownAcrossTheRoom flying]] [[MakeMeWannaShout with one's voice]]. Literally means "force balance push". Often used in videos that show someone or something getting knocked over. For example, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOxVjbGvUpI&feature=related this video]].[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CmH3IL9bEA KA... ME... HA... ME... HA!!!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The master-level shock spell in the destruction tree, Lightning Storm, looks like an electrical variant on the (semi) trope-naming [[{{Kamehamehadoken}} Kamehameha]] from Manga/DragonBall.[[/labelnote]]
* Let me guess, someone stole your sweetroll. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Another quote from the guards. This is actually a reference to previous Elder Scrolls games, where the multiple-choice character creation option would ask you what you would do if someone stole your sweetroll. It's nodded at in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'', another Bethesda game, in which at the start, a bully attempts to steal your sweetroll.[[/labelnote]]
* Did you see those warriors from Hammerfell? They've got curved swords. ''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis Curved.]]'' '''''[[MundaneMadeAwesome Swords.]]''''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]Those guards are at it again. The ones in Whiterun will sometimes comment on the Alik'r warriors in the city who do indeed carry curved swords, which the guards find fascinating for some reason. Inexplicably, you can also hear it from guards in the other cities where there aren't any Alik'r warriors at all.[[/labelnote]]
* "Something you need, you ''miserable wretch''?" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A common greeting from [=NPC's=] that you've managed to royally piss off, usually by stealing something from them or killing a friend of theirs. Most famously used by the merchant Elrindir if you [[spoiler:murder his brother Anoriath for the Dark Brotherhood]].[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e55P2XF38O0 People don't want to be sword.]]
* "Do you get to the Cloud District very often? What am I saying, of course you don't." [[labelnote:Explanation]]A common quote from [[SmugSnake Nazeem]]. Considered particularly grating since the 'Cloud District' is just the area around Dragonsreach.[[/labelnote]]
