3Barbas (Skyrim)

Skyrim Barbas

The reason we remember Barbas so vividly is because he was possibly one of the most random things to ever happen in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. And a lot of random stuff happens in Skyrim. Barbas is a dog that approaches you while you’re walking around the Falkreath area. It is just a random happenstance that you come across the quest to help Barbas find his “master” – but the weirdest part is that he talks.

That’s right: Barbas is a talking dog. The player must escort Barbas back to his master who happens to be a Daedric Prince, Clavicus Vile. You can either kill Barbas for Vile to get a weapon, or reunite Barbas with him and get an artefact. We love Barbas because of the craziness of the entire situation… and we can never bring ourselves to kill him.
