What's your favorite finishing move/fatality in Skyrim?
Don't post finishing moves created by mods. Just vanilla and official DLC.

Also, is there a video out there that shows a unique kill move animation with a Blades sword, Bolar's Oathblade, or Harkon's Sword? I could've sworn there was an actual finisher in the game and official DLC involving these 1H swords, a very fancy finisher where the player twirls his sword around, confusing the opponent, and then decapitates or slashes them to (permanent, depending on the opponent) death.

Side note: someone make a Fatality announcer mod. Do it. Do it do it do it. Do it now.

EDIT: I found the move I was looking for. Sadly, the file itself is hidden for some odd reason.

Hi! Hmm. Well, there was one time, some time ago by now, and I've not since been able to duplicate it, where my PC cut off someone's head. The encounter was high up a mountain road too, and the head went rolling down the road. Not having seen this before, I was curious to see how far that rolling head would roll. Not wanting to loose sight of the head, I skipped looting this time, and began chasing that rolling head. Dang, that head rolled a lot! It went so far away, I was unable to find my way back, right away, to the spot where the fight had happened. It felt like it must've rolled for more than a mile.

Chasing that rolling head reminded me of chasing an unbreakable bottle, in "Oblivion", that couldn't be picked up either, from the mountain top camp that exists if you don't get the DLC for "Frostcrag Spire"/"The Wizard's Lair".

But anyway, yeah, whatever it was I did to cause that decaptation move, that was my favorite of all-time thus far. I wish that I could've used FRAPS to record it. As for the rest of your questions, sorry, I have no ideas.

The finisher that stomps on their balls yes I know it's animated to be the head but when funky skyrim physics come to play when it comes to ragdolls you just know it will hit the balls!

Iv played skyrim for nearly 600 hours and there is this one killmove i absolutaly love, but have only ever seen it done twice. Its the one where your opponent falls to his hands and knees and his head is cut off from that position. I think it can only be done with a warhammer.

i don't know about hands AND knees, but i've seen one similar with dual weilding where i'd knock someone to their knees and scissor slice their head off. definitely one of my favorites

yes its a little like that one; only with a war hammer

Its the one that starts at exactly 1:00; though the head doesnt fully come off in this video for some reason.

well, in your video you can't really tell cuz of the angle, but with the body lying on the ground, i did see blood spurting out of the neck, so i think a decapitation did occur. it's just other videos i've seen trying to find this didn't have it happen

Unarmed finish move where my character picks up his/her opponent and slams them head first into the ground, breaking the neck is my fav.

Best finishing move for me is the two-handed head crush you can do as a werewolf.

I love the sneak attacks when you creep up on someone from behind and slit their throat. They look so astonished when it happens and it looks so cool. The animation when the camera follows an arrow to instantly kill someone is really satisfying too. I also love that two handed head crush a werewolf can do as mentioned above.

Mine would have to be the head-stomp. It's especially brutal when done in heavy armor, and is one of the most satisfying ways to finish off Thalmor, right up there with decapitation.

Nothing flashy. I like the longsword finisher where the enemy is stabbed through the chest and finished off with the backhand across the face.
