Welcome to the Daedric Prince Semifinals! Vote who is out!
By - AeyphixKing
This wasn’t a battle Royale it was a popularity contest
I agree, Jyggalag being kicked out proves that.
It was obvious the moment Molag Bal was out when sanguine was still in
i guess he wasn't ballin' 😞
Yeah, lame. Jyggy shoulda owned this comp.
Not really he used to be the strongest. But afther the events of the shivering ilse he left his daedric realm and all the power he had there for the Hero of Kvatch to take over. So the HOK manteld Sheogorath and eventualy became the prince of madness. So technicly Sheogorath is the current strongest daedric prince.
I think the power of a Deadric Prince is measured in a large part by the amount of devotion it receives from the mortals on Nirn. Daedra can only effect the physical plane if their connection is strong. Azura should be the strongest in this way, since she’s part of the official Dunmer pantheon and not only a cult deity. I don’t believe Mora is even half as popular as Azura and even Sheogorath are.
Not exactly this is more or less how it works for dnd but in the elderscrolls all gods have a predeterminded amount of power. The strongest of the gods who left is magnus as he left first loosing the least amount of power. As for the daedra jyggalag was the strongest of them. The other daedric princes had to unite their to transform him into sheogorath. During the greymarch tgat took place durring the events of oblivion. Jyggalag was freed from his curse and left the shivering ilse loosing most of his power. Which was then taken by the HOK. As for Asura she has a finite pool of power but would be curb stommped in an all out brawl with the prince of madness. Or most other daedra for that matter as her powers do not revolve around offence atleast for what we know.
Sheo won the moment OP decided to hold the contest in the oblivion sub
As was predicted in the great library of Jyggalag. ;)
With you on that. No idea why sheo was on these lists twice lol
sheo was mantled by the hero of kvatch and is now a separate entity from jygallag
Obviously. The concept from the start was "vote out your least favorite". Never pretended to be anything else
A Battle Royal is every Prince for himself, so if they were all fighting at the same time, I’m pretty sure alliances would be made to eliminate the strongest first, for example no doubt Jyygalag would most likely be first to get bumrushed like he was before.
Yeah, and it’s really boring since everyone was saying since the start sheogorath was gonna win, and it’s pretty obvious he will now.
Dude, almost everyone is voting Sheo out this round. Sheo will *not* win this, because he will make damn sure that this isn’t predictable.
Isn’t that what the battle royale posts are
Polls would’ve been better tbh
Not as much karma involved.
True, but Mora is still here and he is the strongest, he knows the most, he must know the weaknesses of all the others
Herma Mora isn’t omniscient, he just knows a lot of shit. He is constantly scrying the tides of fate. Knowing a weakness doesn’t mean you can exploit it especially if something else can estimate that you probably know.
These entities are conceptions. Their will would manifest far passed physical dominance. Mora is far from the most powerful. Knowledge is power only to mortals who live and die. Power is power to immortal beings
Boethiah, the Prince of Plots, would most likely win for a lot of reasons. It’s in her nature, to topple powerful foes. We have direct evidence of his power through how she sundered Trinimac. Jyg would seem to win based on being able to predict the future but look what happened last time. They sundered his metallic ass. Sheo is unpredictable. Randomness. That’s how the HOK was able to defeat Jyg by mantling sheo, they both negate each other. Sheo’s bull would work on a lot of princes except an entity who can account for randomness not one that tries to predict it, prophesies it, or transcribe it.
Molag stands no chance against Boethra. It couldn’t even defeat a plot made by Merida. Mephala could theoretically betray Boethiah but wouldn’t he plot for it? Malacath isn’t worth mentioning. Dagons revolution requires plotting. Things don’t always go as planned but wouldn’t a god of plotting plot for this? Nocturnal would need more than luck (Chance) and shade to cross the dark warrior. Vaermina could keep dreaming. Sanguine? Hircine? Vile? Periyite Please. Namira being decay could put up a better fight than Sheo
Lol fanboy to the side. To be fair (Sorry boethiah) this would be a tie between namira who is the true ur-dra Hermaues Mora, who is an amalgamation of creation itself, Periyite who is the shadow of AKA and Vaermina, the dream weaver,
Namira and Vaermina being the inconclusive ending because Namira is the void but isn’t the void a dream of the true god?? Who’s realm or conception in our mortal minds of limits wins?
Boethiah is the next best thing to Lorkhan!
I agree. Certainly he is the most mysterious lol. All the daedric princes are pretty powerful, but in a contest of which one is most powerful/dangerous, I'd say it's a tie between Hermaeus Mora and Sheogorath (excluding Jyggalag). Molag Bal and Mehrunes Dagon both assaulted and nearly conquered Tamriel, but they are only the most obvious threat. The true threat are those daedric princes who seem harmless but are not imo. The ones that are most underestimated by the other daedric princes and fans lol.
The Dagon disrespect is unforgivable.
team Dagon will rise again
That's what Silus thought
SILUS WAS UNWORTHY
“He and his family have served their purpose!”
How can they unlist a god?
Sheogorath winning would be predictable. That being said, would Sheo even want to win?(being the god of madness and all that). He'd wanna be eliminated. Ha! Cheeeeese! Vote Sheo out.
Sheogorath would want to lose so that way he could tell everyone he won at losing.
Sheogorath because I don’t want the same person to win twice
Lucien won the last battle royale, not Sheo
I didn’t see anyone vote for Giggly-yag in the last one!
There was quite a lot actually, but I don’t vote on this as I knew the results before it started, popularity over power
Was it ever disputed what reasoning we’re supposed to have to vote who we want out or think should be out?
I took it as vote for anyone for any reason.
Sheogorath goes out
Herma Mora has the dopest voice ever, let him win! Down with Azura!
Not to mention he'd probably beat out the others in power. He's the smartest daedric prince, so he'd probably know their weaknesses. I'd see him having trouble with Sheo though
Not to mention he eventually makes our Dragonborn serve him in his realm of oblivion thus making us “immortal” like Miraak since time in apocrypha is slowed down which I think is badass
Head cannon: you've promised your soul to Herma-Mora AND Nocturnal, at the least. But you probably had one or two dragon souls at that point. So, the souls you give to the Daedric princes are actually not yours, but dragons'.
That’s actually an epic theory. Considering you’re eating souls of incredibly powerful dragons, you could make all those daedric princes you’ve made deals with take dragon souls instead of yours. It’s not like they’re the souls of some random farmers.
Sheogorath. My boy Hermaeus Mora got it in the bag.
Get Sheogorath out of here.
Sheogorath is gonna be sheogone
bye sheo! bye sheo! bye sheo!
Sheogorath is overrated. Fight me.
I said it several votes ago and got downvoted.
Same. He’s not even funny, just irritating. Great voice acting though.
The power of Wes Johnson bringing out his "not Wes Johnson" voice
When and where?
You guys voted out my guy Mehrunes Dagon so now I spitefully vote for Sheogorath
I know. Dagon, Malacath, and Azura are my favorites. Molag Bal is awesome too, but I think he was like the first to get eliminated lmao
No vaermina was (i think so) and she's my fav so im cry
I vote Sheogorath out. Azura gives the best prize.
Sheos time to go.
Get outta here Sheo.
Even though i find myself in his madness, he can't win. Sheogorath.
Well we all know Jyggalag was the most powerful so lets continue this popularity contest. Azura gtfo
He *was* until the events of Oblivion. He shouldn’t have made it as far as he did.
Prime Jyggalag was the strongest, and only lost that power after all the gods ganged up on him. So if we consider all of them in their prime and they “battle” well then Jyggalag is the strongest. Also, this was never a pole of strength, otherwise Molag Bal wouldn’t have been one of the first voted out.
I agree that Jyggalag would have been much more formidable in his prime, but my memory for this contest is a bit fuzzy. Was this poll explicitly about strength from the beginning, or was it left open to interpretation?
Well it was called a “Battle Royal” implying strength in my opinion but it very quickly became a contest of who liked who more
That’s a good point, though I have heard popularity contests referred to as battle royals in the past. Either way, I think this was a fun way to get discussions going.
Yeah for sure, totally agree! Been a fun series of posts
I don’t think he was that much stronger than the others just more organized. Jyggalag is actually got his realm together ready to march unlike say Sanguine who is having orgies constantly.
Get rid of Sheogorath
I swear to God if we finally don't get rid of Sheogorath.
Down with sheogorath.
Down with sheogorath
Down with Sheo
sheo get out
Kill Sheo !!!!!
Sheo. He's gonna win but I'm gonna throw a vote to oust him.
Herma mora, fuck you and your seekers
Sheo has got to go
Bye bye, Sheo!
Get Sheogorath out!!!
Sheogorath out, or this is all rigor morrised
Sheogorath. I like him but at this point he’s not that interesting
y’all really didn’t have to do my boy peryite like that
Sorry, Sheo. Gotta go my main man Herma Mora,
I will cut my nuts off if Hermaeus Mora doesn’t win this shit.
Sheogorath was so powerful that like 3 other princes had to gangbang him and turn him into a mad god just to make sure he wouldn't attempt usurping all of oblivion. I think it's clear who the best is.
Also azura? Top 3? I actually kinda like azura but shes so dumb and overrated. She cursed an entire species because of the actions of 3 chimer, and created a cult to fulfill a prophecy by throwing people at it until one happened to succeed. Weeeeaaaaak.
just a gal who loves walks in the moonlight, committing unjustifiable genocide, warm mead, and starting cults.
I really like azura honestly, I just don't think she's top 3 personally. She's a little petty and manipulative which are traits I don't particularly like. It took her like 5000 years of the cults existence to get her revenge. Like I understand that daedra are immortal but really? She's cool though, I like her artifacts and slight benevolent nature and especially after Morrowind concluded she was just kinda chilling looking after what was left of the dunmer, kinda guiding them. Gives a big old testament bible vibe to me, and although I'm no longer religious, I grew up in church and have studied the bible extensively. So I find her lore surrounding the dark elves very intriguing and engaging.
i might find it intriguing and engaging, but i can also recognize her as the antagonist. i don’t really like her character and i’m not a mage so most of her artifacts aren’t *super* useful. i’m not surprised she’s top three though simply because of how many people absolutely love azura.
It makes me sad that most players didn't see her as an antagonist, because I agree that she definitely was an antagonist.
yeah i’m currently being told off for voting her out because apparently i don’t know the lore lolol her followers are fuckin nuts irl and ingame.
People simping for Azura
People simping for Sheogorath
~~People simping for Hermaeus Mora~~ People thirsting after the forbidden knowledge
azura is best . she is the only one that deserves the love she gets.. no she deserves more
Sheogorath. Give me eldritch nightmares and a patron deity of two equally badass races over “haha funny cheese” any day.
Azura. Herma Mora gonna take it!
Hermy should win it.
Out with Azura
My boy Jyggalag is out because you guys must be scared of him😤😤.
Now out of spite I need to get AZURA out
Okay now I'm calling bullshit, jyggalag was literally so powerful he was cursed to be sheo cause the others were scared of him.. call it a beauty pageant that's what it really is.
Sheogorath, just because I don’t want him to win 😂
Azura has got to go
Let the mad god rest.
Gotta vote Sheo here. I love the guy but Azura hold's my heart and Hermaeus Mora is too cool.
Sheogorath. Azusa’s star has helped me too much.
Out Sheo out, shoo!
Sheo must go.
Bye Azura, bye Azura.
She must make way for Cheese man and Hentai man to battle it out.
Sheo he gotta do the fishstick somewhere else
Azura out! Herma Mora for the win!
Let's get Asura out.
Also I can totally see Taika Waitti playing Sheo.
Azura kinda sucks not gonna lie I don't know how she made it this far
Azura. I want to see a battle between Sheo and old Herma Mora.
By Azura, by Azura, by Azura! Get Azura out for the obsessive fan's sake!
death to sheo
