Easter Eggs Wiki

Skyrim is a huge, sandbox, adventure game that takes place in a fantasy time in another realm.

Three Billy Goats Gruff[]

[1]Added by SharkanoidWhile heading toward Hag Rock Redoubt, you may notice a bridge. If it's your first time there, you'll see 2 goats run from underneath it with a 3rd delayed goat following. If you go under the bridge, you'll see a dead troll. This references the old kids' tale, "Three Billy Goats Gruff".

The Headless Horseman[]

[2]Added by SharkanoidYou can find this mysterious horseman riding around all over Skyrim in between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. If followed long enough, he'll take you to Hamvir's Rest.

King Arthur's Sword[]

[3]Added by SharkanoidAt Rebel's Claim, you'll find a sword lodged into a pile of stones. This is obviously a reference to King Arthur's Sword in the legends of King Arthur.

Lady in the Lake[]

[4]Added by SharkanoidNortheast of Bleakwind Basin, you'll find a pond. In said pond is a skeleton's arm slightly above the pond water's surface holding a sword. When taken, the hand holding the sword will duplicate and one will drift away in the pond. This is another King Arthur Legend reference to the Lady in the Lake.

M'aiq the Liar[]

[5]Added by SharkanoidM'aiq the Liar has appeared in The Elder Scrolls series since The Elder Scrolls III, Morrowwind. You'll randomly encounter him throughout Skyrim. When you talk to him, he'll talk to you about the changes in the current game you are in compared to the game before it. If found in Morrowwind, he'll talk about changes since Hammerfell. If found in Oblivion, he'll talk about changes since Morrowwind. And so on.

Dead Luke Skywalker[]

[6]Added by SharkanoidEast of Winterhold, you'll see Bleakcoast Cave. Inside are a few frost trolls, but there is also a skeleton's torso hanging upside-down from the icy ceiling. Its remains are below it on the icy floor including a "Light Sword". This is a reference to Luke Skywalker's scene when he is captured by wampas.

Sweetroll Joke[]

[7]Added by SharkanoidThe developers of Bethesda have put this little joke in many of their games. To hear of it, find a guard and they sometimes will say, "Let me guess, someone stole your sweetroll?".

Notched Pickaxe[]

[8]Added by SharkanoidThis pickaxe can be found at the very top of the Throat of the World, along with some ores to try it out. It is thought to have been put there by the Bethesda crew after they accused the creators of Minecraft of plagiarism when they put a dragon in their game. They then probably felt bad for the accusation and put this pickaxe in the game to apologize in a way.

Pac-Man's Appearance[]

[9]Added by SharkanoidSomewhere in Markarthin, Endon's House, you'll simply find an assortment of foods to resemble Pac-Man eating orbs.


[10]Added by SharkanoidIn Markarthin is an abandoned house. While on the quest, "The House of Horrors", chairs will be stacked with other paranormal activity. However, when you first see them, they won't be stacked, but they will when you return. This references the movie, "Poltergeist".
