Skyrim: 5 Spooky Theories Crazy Enough to be True - The Elder Scrolls 5 Lore (Part 4)

Skyrim is a game with many plotlines, quests and interesting tales, however not everything in the world of The Elder Scrolls 5 may be as it seems. Countless players have developed complex, wacky and fun theories in an effort to explain some of Skyrim’s strangest happenings. So today we’ll be taking a look at five more theories crazy enough to be true in The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim.

    Nate when ES6 comes out, I think you will get to the 1 mil mark. And when you do, remember me, and the rest of us who have been here since a time before "murdered to death" was a thing.

  • Ian

    "everyone should murder the like button to death " should be your catchphrase

  • Dagoth Turd

    I have a theory that Lydia’s just an idiot

  • clark paolo

    love the vids Nate!! I love seeing them pop up on my feed

  • Jesse H.


  • iiAmFrosty

    M'aiq murdered the dragon born to death by killing him! He told me himself!

  • Persisi Faxe condi

    isnt Skyrim 200 years after Oblivion not 400? since the 4th era begun when Martin septim sacrificed himself and Said the 4th era started and Skyrim is in the year 4E 201??

  • CrumpetsRGood4U

    Nathaniel?! He'S a SyNtH!

  • Enzo Lopes

    "Part 3 if I remember correctly"He did not remember correctly

  • Yaldabaoth

    Why would the Dwemer want to blind the Falmer? Easy. To prevent them from ever using an Elder Scroll.

  • Thomas Williams

    I like to justify Lydia's stupidity with the theory that she is in fact a very odd looking mudcrab, rejected by her own kind and recruited by Balgruuf whilst on a fishing trip.

  • The Third Crusader

    Nathaniel. Being proper I see

  • Celestial Aeon Project celtic music & epic music

    Can't wait for the TES: VI <3 Will be too long wait

  • Abi Young

    l y d i a i s t h e n i g h t m o t h e r

  • Troper H'ghar

    The no.4 theory the lurkers being a corrupted fish makes a bit of sense since mora is based on yogg sithoth from the cathullu mythos and the lurkers are based on the deep ones

  • TheNN

    When you brought up the Falmer, Nate, I thought you were gonna talk about that theory about how the Falmer were turned into FUEL by the Dwemer.'Fuel?' I hear you ask, if you don't know what I speak of. Yes, fuel. Falmer, in Skyrim, have WHITE souls, or they can fit in the various regular soul gems, but not BLACK souls like other sentient races have. And what do the many automatons in the various dwemer ruins run on? Soul gems filled with white souls.

  • Vincenzo Torizzo

    Lydia is the Night Mother confirmed headcanon don't @ me

  • ThatAkwardKid

    Oblivion takes place 200 years before Skyrim. Not 400 years.

  • Lucas Bruno

    Interesting video. I used to be a Skyrim/Fallout 4-only pleb but have recently decided to play Oblivion and Morrowind (And Fallout 3 and New Vegas) and boy do I have a lot of work to do. The ES and Fallout lore is dense.

  • Ashbee Gaming

    Nathaniel, that threw me off 😂

  • Shaman Fox

    My theory is that Bethesda leaves a bunch of opened-ended random bits/half-baked plots in their games(like the bugs in jars), leaving it up to the fan base to extend their lore with elaborate theories, filling in the holes for them. While they kick back in Tahiti, sipping their mojitos and living the dream!

  • Riod0ro

    Hey nate! You are cool. Greetings from germany

  • earl smith

    to your theory of lurkers, I may have an addition to that, so we all know the orcs were high elves and followers of trinimac before boethiah devoured him and he transformed to Malacath and they changed with him, with the dark elves also changing by pissing off azura, what if the lurkers were Sea Elves(Maomer) that got corrupted by hermaeous mora


    OyfumEdit Nate didn’t like because he isn’t a man of culture!!!

  • JXEditor

    So I've been working on a theory for about a year now and it would be really cool if you made a video about. The theory is that Alduin encompasses both the sphere of Akatosh and the sphere of Molag Bal. First off, how is this possible? Well to explain that just look at another god from the Nordic Pantheon, Orkey, who in many ways embodies both Arkay and Malacath. To truly get a grasp on how this is possible I divert you to the lorebook "Azura and the Box" where a Dwemer challenges Azura to tell him the contents of a box, but to everyone's surprise Azusa's prophesy was wrong and she disappeared, but as it turns out it wasn't. One possible reason for her disappearance (with which I agree) is that Azura was not fooled, rather everyone in the room was fooled into believing Azura was wrong and thus she ceased to exist within that room. Proving that at least some of the "Gods" are actually created by the mortals who worship them. Now onto the evidence of this theory in particular. Akatosh is simple enough to explain and is widely accepted. Dragon Gods of Time, pretty easy connection to make. As for Molag, well he's the Lord of Domination, and it is in the very nature of the Dovah to dominate. "Dov wahlaan fah rel." Now look at what makes Molag Bal unique above all others. He can truly return a person from death, no matter who they are. Now look at Alduin and how he rebuilt his dragon army. He raised them from the dead, returning their souls to their bodies. Molag Bal is one of the patrons of Necromancers. The ancient servants of the dragons still rise from their graves, as draugr, to attend the needs of their masters. One thing that speaks against this is Durnehviir's reference to "'Alok-Dilon,' the ancient forbidden art that you call necromancy." However this could be because Traditional Necromancy would divert power away from him, since necromancy involves worship and deals with other deities (like the Ideal Masters). Also it could be that Alduin seeks to limit the power of the other Dragons so he can truly dominate them. There's some more little stuff that supports it but I'll just leave it with, "I mean look at him! Alduin looks like a dragon who got bit by a vampire!"Something to consider.

  • Lighty Dust

    >Nathaniel>400 years before SkyrimNate, you're home, go drunk.

  • AntiSkillshot

    I must disagree with the info about Sithis in this video. If Sithis is unable to care about literally anything, why would Lucien Lachance say "I will kill this jester if you so desire, but there is a disturbance in the Void. Our Dread Father does not wish this"? This implies heavily that Sithis cares in some manner.

  • Caleb Ascencio

    Sh-she was.. brainwashed? ..But... i... I loved her... WE WERE MARRIED! ... we had KIDS!😭 was it all... a lie?😢

  • Yannkam 212

    To be honest, none of the Housecarls have a backstory, however if you turn Lydia into a blade, there's a chance that Hrongar (Balgruuf's Brother) would send hired thugs after you. Making them related somehow.

  • Blaze Haze

    Skyrim is a massive game

  • Cory Dorton

    Or it's more than likely that she would just an underdeveloped character and they really didn't need a back story for her since she's just your house carle and really you get her at the beginning for doing nothing unlike other companions to have side quest or other activities the game them as follower she doesn't so really they were probly just lazy and just said yeah will just make her awarded yeah I don't waste time given our story or anything she just a reward for killing a dragon that you have to do anyway so yeah

  • Jeremy A

    I mean there's plenty of candles in draugr tombs and they have presumably been burning for centuries too.

  • Jack Evans

    Hey all your vids are worth watching

  • McMunchy

    “And even longer since we’ve made one worth watching” bruh every one of your videos is worth watching.

  • Lolo KerNic

    Lucien's ghost warns you not to kill Cicero, risking to anger Sithis, so to would seem je has some kind of will and plans of his own.

  • EpicRite

    Murder to death People die if they are killed

  • SneakyWarrior 82

    For those of you who feel sad....allow me:Run wild. To risk everything. To hold nothing back. To lay it all on the line: your reputation, your success, your comfort. It's that moment when fear is overcome by faith. Live free. It's not the liberty to do whatever you want whenever and wherever you want, but rather it's living in accordance with the author of humanity and finding freedom by connecting with the creator who conceived you. Let the light flood into your eyes for the first time. Feeling the blood course through your veins, finding the truest version of yourself by knowing the one who knows you even better than you know yourself. Love strong. Because you were first loved. Because without love we all perish. Because the earth and the stars can and will pass away, but love, love will always remain

  • GreyJack


  • TheSpartan ll

    Lydia I believe is the only female in skyrim to use male animations.

  • burger lord

    the Lydia one doesn't feel right I think the lack of backstory is because she is only a soldier who was good enough to climb up the ranks

  • dark blade70

    Lydia might have found the door with the ebony blade and learned something about the jarl which he didn't want out

  • Cory Dorton

    Actually it is possible that since they were not naturally born underground that they lost their eyesight over generations of living underground you have to remember that most underground Places even well lit ones are not as bright As above ground so since their eyes were not used to that it is possible that over generations it devolved in they basically lost their eyesight since they didn't need it or depended on it their body just naturally rejected it and that heightened sense of hearing and smell because they need those to survive

  • Kumbi


  • Kumbi

    Wow. It never occurred to me and now won’t stop bothering me that Lydia has no backstory D:


    no no no i have i good idea...... Bethesda should make a elder scrolls game, where you were the last snow elf and had to save the snow elf race so you should travel back in time to save them perfect. BTW i am not american

  • ForeverLost

    The day that ES6 comes out, I bet that Nate's going to be churning out videos that have tiny details from the end of the game.

  • KJ L

    Lydia's was just sheogorath's pawn to make fun of the new protagonist in the franchise, bc he's the grandchampion and yellow team really sucks

  • Dan

    1:40 isn't it 200 years?

  • The Gaming Rock


  • Wolf Woods

    One like and no views... YouTube is perfectly as usual.

  • Andrew Chapman

    r/TESlore must be a favourite, eh Nate?

  • Lindzi Kunene

    There's something awfully soothing about hearing "Hey how's it going guys it's Nate here"😌

  • Olgierd Boratyński

    It would be interesting if Lydia really was brainwashed. Maybe she listened to Whispering Lady and tried to get the Ebony Blade, but she was stopped and Balgruuf out of fear ordered Farengar to erase her memories. After the Whispering Door quest, she would start to remember things, and you would have a choice: kill her or help her remember everything and let her join us as a completely new person. Now that's a mod I would pay for.

  • that one guy

    I wonder if Lord Vlindrel and Vlindrel hall have any connections....

  • sunicarus

    I think the Lurkers are mutated sea elves

  • Am Ha

    Who is this Nathaniel you spoke of?

  • WiredInRogue

    Don't all housecarls have no backstory ??

  • Kronaz邪児

    They make a big deal about their dumb candle that doesn't go out, but I've been in tombs that haven't been opened for thousands of years and they still have fresh candles and torches everywhere. Big whoop.

  • Eric Kanns

    1:40 I thought it was 201 years between Skyrim and Oblivion? Oblivion is the last year of 3E right? Skyrim is 4E 201...

  • Flex Gopnik

    Well candle hearth is just a noke about that no flames get burnt out...

  • Sol

    What if Mephala is the "wife" of Sithis, Sithis being the force in which Mephala directs and chooses, leading by a marriage of concepts and interference of the mortal realm. True Daedra princes tend not to often share the spotlight, but Sithis isnt a daedra and rather an overvoid like concept that can be used rather than communed with. Mephala is the night mother, but not what we consider. Perhaps the night mother we see is a symbolic totem of that union of the weaving of darker forces joining together in a conspiracy beyond our ken?

  • tyler hilpisch

    the Lurkers look like they have armor close to the falmer so they might be once snow elves who needed sanctuary from the Nords

  • Cacteyes

    Excuse me who is this N A T H A N I E L ?

  • skullpull 101

    How would Lucian Luchance exist in Skyrim, rambling on about the void, if it was just dadra

  • Cory Dorton

    It my be a candle from izora I mean those candles My just be for those that died honorably is possible that there's also a special wax that you can make in the candles that are for special honorable people that continue to burn in their honor but it doesn't matter not all daydra or evil And overall she seemed like one of the nicer ones and honorable ones so it really doesn't matter
