Special bear in the Helgen Keep?[edit]

I refuse to believe that the bear you encounter while escaping from Helgen is the same as the level 12 version. It has a much lower amount of health and its damage output is much, much lower. Should that version of the bear be added to the page? — Unsigned comment by (talk) on 10:19 31 July 2013

Is there a Style Guide Rule On Real-Life Comparisions?[edit]

Bears are large, hostile enemies that, like bears in real life, will attack you (or another threat) if you get too close to them.

To this:

Bears are large, hostile enemies that will attack you if you are found infringing on their territory.

I don't think it is necessary to tell people that bears attack you in real life. I'm pretty sure most people already know that. Regardless, comparing anything in a video to real life is a very slippery slope, we could, for example, note that there are no roosters in Skyrim, though there are many female chickens, which in real life is practically impossible. --AN|L (talk) 21:58, 4 November 2013 (GMT)
Also, the second one sounds better, because the sentence isn't broken up by commas and parentheses. Jeancey (talk) 22:00, 4 November 2013 (GMT)
