The Adoring FanMeet the “Adoring Fan“, an annoying character from the popular 2007 Video Game of the Year winner, Oblivion: Elder Scrolls IV by Bethesda Softworks.

The Adoring Fan is an annoying little wood-elf with a blonde “fauxhawk” and a whiny, effeminate voice who walks around with a smug look on his face1. His purpose is to “help” your character throughout the game, but instead he turns out to be an extreme nuisance; he actually, more often than not, abandons you by running away like a little bitch as enemies approach.

Perhaps that sh*t eating grin he has plastered on his face isn’t proof enough for you? See for yourself on YouTube; gamers enjoy picking on him. Just do a search for ‘oblivion adoring fan’ and you will see numerous videos depicting him in various elaborate, well-planned death scenarios. We will show you the best one at the end of this post.

The Adoring Fan also spits out ridiculous gibberish throughout the game. Here are some annoying quotes straight from the Adoring Fan himself:

1. By Azura! By Azura! By Azura! It’s the Grand Champion! I can’t believe it’s you! Standing here, next to me!
2. Yes, oh great and mighty Grand Champion? Is there something you need? Can I carry your weapon? Shine your boots? Backrub, perhaps?
3. Here? Right here? What about, say… over there? No? Right here? All right then, you’re the Grand Champion! Whatever you say!
4. Aw, gee! You sure? Okay, well, I’ll be hanging around the Arena grounds if you need someone to worship the ground you walk on. Bye!

And, if you only need to know one more thing about the Adoring Fan character, it’s the fact that he absolutely ADORES the “Grand Champion2” character in the video game. He offers to shine the Grand Champion’s boots, carry his weapons, and give him a quote-unquote backrub. He is what we at OTD call a “Grand Champion Nut-Hugger”.

During the game, he has been known to say the following “groupie-like” phrase (more “stalker-like” if you ask me):

Golly, you’re the best! I’m going to follow you and watch you and worship the ground you walk on!

Keeping that quote in mind, here’s a quick SAT Analogy for you to try and answer:

(Reminder, the semicolon “:” represents “is to”)

As

A) JonBenét Ramsey : Michael Jackson
B) Male anal rape : A homophobic straight guy
C) OfferOfTheDay.com : You

The 2nd most annoying video game character of all time is Toadstool from Super Mario Bros. Walking around with that ridiculous thing on his head…RIDICULOUS.

Your character can also pick-pocket the Adoring Fan throughout the game. You can also lock him up in a room in your house and try to starve him to death, but he never dies.

I would very much enjoy beating this elf-boy to within an inch of his life. His face would be unrecognizable to his peers after I get finished with that annoying POS.

My costume for Halloween this year will hopefully be that of “The Adoring Fan” from Oblivion.

I hope Bethesda writes him into their next installment of the game. As much as I hate the Adoring Fan, he’s fun to pick on. I may re-play the game…but this time I will create my character to look EXACTLY like the Adoring Fan and even name him the Adoring Fan. Then I will spend the whole game running away from enemies and stalking some poor character from the Arena. It might be a little weird when I get to the point in the game where I meet the “real” Adoring Fan but it will be worth it to see the look on his face.

Look at the following thread on the uesp.net forum regarding this issue:
The Adoring Fan Is A Jerk!

[…] Looking through some stuff on Digg this morning, I stumbled upon a funny post on the site Offer of the Day. One of their writers declares “The Adoring Fan” from Oblivion to be “The Most Annoying Video Game Character Ever.” […]
