Dremora are humanoid Daedra aligned with the Daedric Prince Mehrunes Dagon, often very intelligent, and generally hostile. In lore, it is said they can be found in clans of large numbers in the wastes of Oblivion. Dremora are grouped into several different castes: Churl, Caitiff, Kynval, Kynreeve, Kynmarcher, Markynaz, and Valkynaz. Dremora are a rare sight in Skyrim, only appearing as summoned creatures and in a few set locations, such as the Shrine of Mehrunes Dagon, Shalidor's Maze, and Azura's Star Interior.
The other way to encounter Dremora in Skyrim is by summoning one. There are a few ways to summon Dremora:
- The Sanguine Rose, a reward from the quest A Night To Remember, will summon a leveled melee fighter Dremora for 60 seconds, or 120 seconds, if the appropriate Conjuration perks are invested into.
- The Conjuration spell Conjure Dremora Lord will summon a Dremora Lord for 60 seconds, or 120 seconds, again if the appropriate Conjuration perks are invested into.
- The Atronach Forge can be used to summon hostile Dremora, which will obviously attack anybody or anything on sight.
- The Conjuration Ritual Spell quest involves summoning an Unbound Dremora; this Dremora cannot be summoned anywhere other than the roof of the Hall of Attainment. Once again, this will be automatically hostile to everything it encounters.
- The Wabbajack has a chance to momentarily turn the target into a hostile Dremora.
There are three types of Dremora, based on their preferred fighting style (melee fighters, archers, and warlocks). All Dremora are NPCs, which means that they have black souls. All types of Dremora have a 100% chance of dropping a Daedra Heart on death, making them one of the few guaranteed sources of this rare ingredient.

- Game data reveals that all DremoraRace NPCs are modeled directly on a Dark Elf character model, with the only changes being: horns, their own unique skin tone, their own unique complexion (red facial markings), and their in-game height being equal to that of the High Elf.
- The Daedric Prince Sanguine appears in the form of a Dremora.
- Several NPCs are classified in the game data as Dremora.
- Strangely, some Dremora, either through natural spawning or use of the console, do not use the regular Dremora voice type, but instead sound like male Nords.
- Seven of the Dremora lines appear in the book I Was Summoned by a Mortal in ESO.
