The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is considered one of the best video games ever released, gaining critical acclaim just after its publication and selling 7 million copies to retailers in its first week. Probably, it is best known for the memes that surround it, particularly the one with the arrow to the knee. Besides these particularities, Skyrim still has many more to offer in the terms of weird or unusual facts. To find out the oddest 10 facts and happenings that can appear in this game, we invite you to keep watching this video!
Naked couriers deliver you letters
Not actually the full Monty situation here, but some of the couriers might surprise you with their clothing, or more correctly, the lack of it. Wearing only a piece of cloth to cover their intimate parts, it’s a good thing they have a nice pair of leather boots to keep them warm. Besides the fact that meeting such a character might strike you as odd, you have to admit it’s also kind of funny to receive news from a half-nude, bearded guy.
“Took an arrow in the knee” is just a… line
Even though there are multiple theories concerning the origin of this infamous line, Todd Howard, Bethesda’s chief game developer, revealed in a Kotaku article that it was written by Emil Pagliarulo. The senior game designer just wanted to make the NPCs seem more real and thus created a discourse to make them so. As we know, viral content simply appears. It is not made with a clear intention to become a hit and the “took an arrow in the knee” meme certainly is the perfect example to showcase just that.

Goodamnit skyrim! I didnt know we could have had game of thrones themed game!
Imagine Nudity, furrys\dragons,... oh right mods, guess we got most of it anyway.
But still Would be cool to play in another fantasy world other than skyrim\oblivion\tamriel ect
Heeeellllllllp is there any way if you favourite your spells as left or right dpad press to swap back to your weapon and shield previously equipped, in other words ive got a mace and shield and press left /right to go to flames.... Now how do i go back to mace and shield 😣😣😣😣I've not played for two years and im stuck
yA KNOW I USED TO SAY THE SAME ABOUT DRAGONS and wyverns. But you know what? All around the world there are tales about dragons, and they are all diferent from each other, just because the occident-europe dragon has 4 legs and wings does not make it the rule and all the other invalid. Wyverns are dragons, chinese dragons are dragons, tiny, tall, all are dragons.
The fact that the dragons in skyrim are wyvern is debatable. Wyvern are small and only usually don't breath fire. Take a look at Smaug for The Hobbit. 2 legs, still is a dragon (the books version has 4 legs, but still, the movie Smaug only has 2)
"They are actually wyverns." Why can't this meme die? Dragons have always had different appearances, stop falling for that stupid meme. Chinese Dragons have no wings, Norse Dragons sometimes have no legs. They're all fucking dragons.
The dragons are definitely dragons. There is no "has to have four legs" rule, some have many more, some have none. Wyverns typically have poison stingers on their tails from my experience of lore, something definitely missing from these beasts.
Here's a really easy way to see if they're a dragon, or not.
Step 1 - find out if the story is disconnected from reality
If it is, proceed to step 2
Step 2 - accept whatever the fuck the developers say because it is their world, lore, and representation of a dragon.
I think two of the strangest things I have seen in Skyrim are: Skjor coming back from the dead and being able to get work from him like you never completed the Companion quest line in the first place, and a hostile but sort of passive dragon floating in the sitting animation above and near Bleakfalls Barrow (at least 100 feet above and to the left of the highest point of the mountain.)
Yiftach Eliav yes it's so epic. You rarely hear pipes playing songs in minor and I'm freaking in love with it but i cant find it anway and shazam is pretty much useless because narator is talking whole the time.
skyrim is soo awesome... any other gamer out there, at what level did you beat that mission where you have to go into the party at the thalmor embassy becasue delphine told you to and cause a scene, then fight your way out after getting information about the thalmor?? it's hella hard. I'm on level nine..
