When I will walk the earth again, the Faithful among you shall receive your reward: to be set above all other mortals forever. As for the rest: the weak shall be winnowed: the timid shall be cast down: the mighty shall tremble at my feet and pray for pardon.
~ Mehrunes Dagon.

Mehrunes Dagon is the main antagonist of An Elder Scrolls Legend: Battlespire and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and one of the seventeen Daedric Princes, demonic deities who each have their own parallel Dimension to rule over, which are collectively known as the "Oblivion". His sphere of influence is destruction, change and ambition. He is also the second most evil Daedra prince and the most dangerous, and his plane of Oblivion, the "Deadlands", resembles Hell and is inhabited by an army of Demonic creatures called Dremora. His goal is to take over the human mortal world, which he has attempted several times.

Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

The hero finds Martin, and together they lead a campaign to destroy the main Oblivion gates and gather the artifacts needed to stop the Mythic Dawn. Eventually, they gain access to the cult's headquarters in the alternate dimension of "Paradise", and kill its leader Mankar Camoran. After that, the last thing left to do is for Martin to be officially crowned as the new Emperor and light the sacred "Dragonfires" in the Imperial City's temple to stop Dagon from appearing in Tamriel. However, Mehrunes Dagon is summoned into the middle of the city before they can do so, thus completely severing the barriers between Tamriel and Oblivion made by the Dragonfires. As a last resort, Martin sacrifices himself inside the temple to summon a giant flaming dragon, the avatar of Akatosh the god of time, to banish Dagon to Oblivion forever.

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Only Dagon can declare if a pawn is worth keeping. I. Have. Spoken.
~ Mehrunes Dagon speaking to the Dragonborn.

In Skyrim, there is a giant shrine to Mehrunes Dagon. A descendent of one of the Mythic Dawn members named Silus is historically fascinated and obsessed with the cult, hiring the player gather for him the scattered pieces of Mehrunes Razor. The pieces are then brought to the shrine to be assembled, where Mehrunes Dagon's tells the player to kill Silus in order to be rewarded with the reassembled razor. The player can choose to not kill Silus, who will give the player 5000 septims in return, to which Dagon will angrily summon Dremora to punish the Dragonborn. Killing Silus will result in Dagon repairing the razor as promised, but he will still summon Dremora to attack immediately, declaring it 'one final challenge'.


Divine & Daedric Peers

For his breaking of pacts with the Aedra and actually appearing on the plane of Mundus during the events of Oblivion even while the Amulet of Kings was held by Martin: the descendant of Akatosh, Akatosh himself smote Dagon as previously mentioned. This would mark Maehrunes Dagon as an enemy of the Aedra and his followers were hunted down by all followers of the gods; however this was not the only consequence. The other Daedric Princes all despised Dagon even more than the the Aedra, for while the Gods objected to Dagon's contempt for the world, the Princes objected to Dagon's contempt for their credibility. The pact made with the Aedra to not directly affect Mundus was not made just between Dagon and the Aedra but in-fact between all the Daedric Princes and the Aedra, so in breaking his oath, Mehrunes Dagon had damaged the credibility of all his brethren. While the mortal followers of the Aedra branded Mehrunes Dagon's followers as heretics and criminals, the Daedric Princes, whose followers might otherwise have offered sanctuary to their fellow cultists, turned their backs on the members of the Mythic Dawn and indeed forsook Mehrunes Dagon as a Daedra worthy of any reverence. All the Daedric Princes are theorized to have had a hand in rendering Dagon a forsaken god, and thus responsible for his seeming obsolescence during the events of Skyrim. Azura, Meridia, Sheogorath, Boethiah, and even Molag Bal, have all stated their utter contempt for Mehrunes Dagon prior to the events of Oblivion and so it is all but certain all consider him even more wretched currently.


Why do you call me mortal? Do you seek death soon? I should crush you where you stand, yet you show mettle by approaching me. How ambitious are you, little one?
~ Mehrunes Dagon
Kill him. Take your rightful place as my champion or I will crush you.
~ Mehrunes Dagon
You have been a worthy tool. Fill the world with destruction in my name.
~ Mehrunes Dagon
Spare me your pitiful pride. You are but a tool of my ambitions, mortal. Never forget that.
~ Mehrunes Dagon
