Best NPCs In The Elder Scrolls V: SkyrimMetalhead666 NPC means non-playable character for those of you who don't know. Basically every character in the game apart from the Dragonborn.
The Top Ten
He's like the Stephen Fry of dragons
If you kill Toriel/papyrus/Sans, that's the equivalent of killing Paarthurnax. A true supporter along the way. - Canuck101
I killed him thinking a would get gold. Then found out you don't. Tried to redeem myself by killing the blades and the greybeards still hate me. Don't kill paarthurnax or the greybeards won't teach you new shouts
The Yoda of dragons he is easily the wisest and best npc in the game when Delphine said to kill him...uhhh no screw her.V 3 Comments
"Oh yes, I was there for that whole sorted affair. Marvelous time! Butterflies, blood, a fox, a severed head, ohoho! And the CHEESE, to die for! " - Sheogorath, Best video game character of all time (joking of course, but he is really great). Personally, I do think Sheogorath is the main character of Oblivion, if you consider the Shivering Isles canon, which I do. Sheogorath is just so deliciously insane, hilarious and evil at the same time.
"Do you mind? I'm busy doing the fishstick. It's a very delicate state of mind! " "Ta ta, come by again, or I'll pluck out your eyes! Haha! "
He's simply hilarious! And the cheese... It's to DIE FOR. Wait. We weren't talking about cheese, were we? What were we talking about? WAIT! Don't tell me! I WANT TO GUESS!
I mean come on "I'm doing the fish stick it's a very delicate state of mind" go doesn't love him
Skyrim so far for me has been generally an epic game with humorous and other bits thrown in in the right places. Sheogorath is one of these, mostly due to how damn random he is.V 12 Comments
Now listen well, he's Jarl Balgruuf, and he be ballin, ballin, ballin, Jarl Ballin, ballin, ballin. Swag, he's Lord of the Rings, and the Jarl of Whiterun, holla if you need him...
Sorry, can't ever forget that. But I like Balgruuf because he is probably the smartest Jarl out of all of them (though I also quite like Ulfric) and is loyal to his people, first and foremost. And he tries to stay out of the war for as long as he can but when Ulfric threatens to besiege Whiterun he fought back because he was no coward. If I had to choose which Jarl to be the next High King, my vote would go to Balgruuf...
He's the lord of the rings and he be Ballin so Holla o us need him
Balgruff is nice and has a funny name but I hate his kids
Come on, he's the best Jarl! He's not an idiot like some other characters, he's helpfull and in general an enjoyable NPC (Plus he's Ballin)V 4 Comments
Is it weird that I crush so hard on her?V 1 Comment
How come in the subtitles it says her name then
Everybody thinks that she sentenced the dragonborn to his/her death, but the person who did that was killed by alduin. Legate rikke wasn't even at Helgen.V 1 Comment
Isn't he you favorite insane guy dressed weirdly, too? Excluding the Joker?
Insanely funny as well as insane. Loyal to the old and true Dark Brothehood ways. Sneaky as can be and his added dialouge always has me laughing.
"Cicero wants sky forge steel. Sharp sharp sharp to stab stab stab"
Did I mention, he is insane?
I I find a signing bird ill snap it neck before its heard heheheheheV 1 Comment
Am I the only one who thinks that she should be the Jarl of Riften? - aldwych94V 1 Comment
Ulfric is the true High King of Skyrim. DOWN WITH THE EMPIRE!
He is the true high king of skyrim
Has a very bad ass voice
All hail to UlfricV 5 Comments
She was not just the type to say yes because of a necklace. You had to say the right things.
Possibly the most developed character in Skyrim and seems more human than most other npcs. However, she was the "forced in" kinda type. They wont even let you ditch or dismiss her until you complete the ENTIRE Dawnguard questline.
A character with an actual interesting backstory, that means something.V 1 Comment
He helps out when you join the legion and turns out to be a great character. - aldwych94
Only important briefly. Afterwards he's irrelevant. - Canuck101
He tells you all the features of the games and other Easter eggs, but in riddle form.
M'aiq should be a playable character, it would be very interesting
If M'aiq was a follower, then I would never stop playing Skyrim.
I loved him in oblivion and skyrimV 4 Comments
I used to like the hold guard but then I took an arrow to the knee.
I love their armor, lines and especially the fact they treat that chicken in river wood like a holy object that can make you immortal and allows you to make it rain bacon.V 1 Comment
Her death was one of the saddest in the game. - aldwych94
Astrid shouldn't even be on this list
She gives you a pretty good bow at the and of the thieves guild storyline.
How could anyone forget the one who always sounds like they are whispering lol.
She's good but her voice is so creepyV 1 Comment
Best follower in vanilla Skyrim by far. Sweet, strong, and the quest to get him is easy.
He's such a sweetheart, but still a badass
I literally made him into a death machine when I play skyrim - SirSkeletorThe3rdV 1 Comment
