Skyrim funny mods
With its washed-out colours and constant threat of death by dragon fire, Skyrim is quite a grim game. Take a break from the weight of saving the world by being a bit silly. These mods will help insert a sense of humour into Tamriel’s coldest regions.
Jedi of Skyrim
If you can mod a game that involves swords, you can guarantee there’s a Star Wars mod out there somewhere. Skyrim is no exception, and lightsabers are fore and centre in the Jedi of Skyrim mod. It’s deeper than just humming blades though, with skill trees for Knights of the Old Republic-style Jedi classes that grant classic Force abilities like Mind Trick, Grip, and Lightning.
If the robes in the Jedi of Skyrim pack don’t shout Star Wars loud enough for you, why not dress up in this Storm Trooper armour? It’s not even Storm Trooper-themed plate; this is a 100% accurate, white-and-black plastic Storm Trooper costume. And it’s not only the classic designs either – the mod packs in Snow Trooper, Death Star Trooper, and Clone Trooper variations too.
If Star Wars is a bit too 1970s for you, inject Skyrim with the latest cinema phenomenon with this Iron Man armour mod. Containing the classic Mark VI, embodiment of freedom Iron Patriot, and the Stealth suit, the Iron Man mod also provides Pepper Potts as a companion, and a unique piece of Dwemer technology in place of cheerful AI J.A.R.V.I.S. The suit doesn’t fly, but it does look pretty flash in hotrod red.
The most gallant heroes always have a minstrel in tow to sing of their noble deeds and tremendous victories. Make your minstrel something the townsfolk will never forget with this lute-playing bear.
There’s no denying the joy of smacking people around the chops with the big purple… things… in Saints Row. Squeaky Toys brings that same joy to Skyrim without the need to be uncouth. Massive inflatable hammers and bats with just the right squeak pitch on every impact.
Call of Trainwiz
Nothing demonstrates the power of the one true Dragonborn like an airstrike. But don’t settle for anything less than Grade-A, high-explosive locomotion munitions. Call the contents of London Euston down upon your foes with this most deadly of shouts.
The Minecraft Mod
Skyrim has crafting, and Minecraft is a game all about crafting, so they’re a natural pairing. This is still a mod-in-progress, but subscribe to it now and you’ll be granted the classic Diamond Sword and Pickaxe, the Ender Sword, a Diamond Shield, and Diamond Ingots. Naturally, Diamond Ingots are used to forge the weapons at the smithy station, keeping the ‘craft’ in ‘Minecraft’ very much alive in Skyrim. You can also make arrows for your bow in the Minecraft style. On the way are Creepers, Ender Dragons, Skeletons, and craftable armours.
Pokémon in Skyrim
Team Rocket have invaded Skyrim! That means it’s time to kiss your mother goodbye and set out on your journey from Whiterun to become a Pokémon master and defeat the nefarious animal-cruelty gang! Catching a wild Pokémon is easy: just beat it to death with your favourite weapon until it’s dead. This will add the beast’s name to the book of Pokémon, which can then be used to summon them in battle. You’ll start your journey with a Pikachu (or at least a garishly-coloured rat), but 12 other pocket monsters are hiding out there in the world in need of a slave master. Gotta slay ‘em all!
Turn bwark bwark into boom boom with these highly volatile poultry explosives. Simply fire projectiles at them from a safe distance for instant fire, burst eardrums, and chargrilled wings.
That's your lot! What do you reckon? Any classics we've missed out?
