The Adoring Fan is a rather infamous character in Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. The Hero of Kvatch first meets him after becoming Grand Champion of the Arena. If he is allowed to follow the Hero, he will follow until asked to stop following or when he is killed. Something to note about the Adoring Fan is that if the Hero kills him, the next time the Hero is near the Arena, the fan will come and ask if he can follow again. The fact he comes back to life brings ire to some but joy to others, particularly those who enjoy taking him to high places and knocking him over the edge of a cliff with a swing of a sword or a magical spell then watching him fall to his untimely doom. The most popular place to execute the Adoring Fan is Dive Rock where he can be knocked off the cliff to his death.
- "Wow! You're the grand champion! I saw your fight with the Gray Prince! You're the best! Can I... can I follow you around? I won't get in the way!"
- "Yes, oh great and mighty Grand Champion? Is there something you need? Can I carry your weapon? Shine your boots? Backrub, perhaps?"
- (When told to stay put), "Here? Right here? What about, say... over there? No? Right here? All right then, you're the Grand Champion! Whatever you say!"
- (When told to go away), "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!"
- "By Azura! By Azura! By Azura! It's the Grand Champion! I can't believe it's you! Standing here, next to me!"
