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
Come on that's my dragon homie - thebounty
He's like the Stephen Fry of dragons
The Dragon on your shoulder
He's the most epic npc made by Bethesda.V 5 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
Oh, I know! I'll write this as a death threat, written on the back of an Argonian PORCUPINE!V 14 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...
Balgruff is nice and has a funny name but I hate his kids
He's the lord of the rings and he be Ballin so Holla o us need him
Jarl Ballin... the name is self explanotoryV 5 Comments
Is it weird that I crush so hard on her?
She's cool and a great wife.
She is a really good follower. I took her into labyrinth and she destroyed the skeletal dragon. (I did give her daedric armor but not daedric weapons.) - Katekat123
Legate Rikke wasn't the person who ordered death sentence of Dragonborn. It was an imperial Captain, imperial by race. Rikke is nord. - zxm
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.
She's a total boss
Need I say more?
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? - aldwych94
In a city getting its reputation ruined by corruption and crime, she's a badass warrior who protects its people. She also sends you to Mzinchaleft, which is nice.
If only you could marry her. :(
She was not just the type to say yes because of a necklace. You had to say the right things.
The first video game character I ever fancied
I’m surprised some of these characters ranked above Serana. The Dragonborn gets closer to her than to any other character in the game.V 3 Comments
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
M'aiq is tired now. Go bother somebody else.
He is. The bestV 6 Comments
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
Ulfric is the true High King of Skyrim. DOWN WITH THE EMPIRE!
Ulfric is a jerk
He is the true high king of skyrim
I remember murdering him with a voice. Shouted him apart. - zxmV 8 Comments
Is there Gabriella named NPC in Skyrim? Laugh out loud
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.
I used to like the hold guard bu then I topk an arrow to the knee.
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.
Her voice is hot.
She's good but her voice is so creepy
Her death was one of the saddest in the game. - aldwych94
Astrid shouldn't even be on this list
The only good part of the Companions questline.
Kodlak Whitemane is in a better place now.For is there any place better than Sovngarde?
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
Best accent in the game man!
Best guy in the game
The gods sent a dragon to save him, he should have waited
The divines did not help him :'(
I love his accent, and just how ridiculous he looks in nightingale armor and how much he changed. Love that dude.
Brynjolf mays here with my falmer blood elixir
He gives you gold for framing a rando for theft so yeah that's cool I guess😐V 1 Comment
Why is Nazeem on this list? Everything that he says is a snobbish comment! - aldwych94
Annoying... that's all!
Nazeem- "Do you get to go to the cloud district often? No, of course you don't"
Me- "Do you like to do it with yo momma, yes of course you do."
no. - Canuck101
On my Level 86 high elf account, I just spend all my time in solsteim so I can hang out with him, he's my favorite.
You know a character is great when he pretty much hijacks a quest line in a game he arguably doesn't quite belong in... The only problem is the constant talking, but oh well.
Farkas is the most good looking guy in the game and makes a decent follower
He is a savage
Alduin is so cool, I have no idea why he is not the number one character in skyrim! He's the most awesome looking dragon and the most powerful one too.
Alduin is the best
He was the only reason that I never chose to destroy the Dark Brotherhood, other than Spectral Assassin and Shadowmere.
There is nothing more amazing then having this useless piece of crab fighting people with his iron dagger
This Khajiit is so funny when he refers to himself in the third person
Sadly nonessential but he's the only guy ill load a save for
Admit it, you like yourself above any npc!
Shouldn't be here. He is not an npc a.k.a Non Playable Character.
He knows what's best for skyrim! He's very practical and just in my opinion
General Tullius is hell of a lot nicer than Ulfric Stormcloak
When I heard about her, I felt so sad for her when her dad died in the war and when she ended up being homeless. I couldn't help but adopt her. - aldwych94
"I'd sell my sister to you, if I had one."
He has a funny sort of appeal, he is very helpful, and he does a lot of work around the thieves guild. Plus, he called "the curse"
How is he so low, he is Jason Statham!
1. He's the only wood elf follower (I think)
2. He's one of the first available followers
3. He's a really good early archery trainer
4. He's a great shot with a bow (saved my life a few times)
