As part of the Xbox Games Showcase 2023 and Starfield Direct last week, you may have spotted the appearance of the legendary "Adoring Fan" from Oblivion - who was already confirmed to be making a comeback in Starfield.

The first look at the character in the new game drew a lot of attention following the Showcase, and it even prompted the original voice actor of the Adoring Fan, Craig Sechler, to put together a comical video announcing his return.

For those who aren't aware, the Adoring Fan became a meme in the years following his appearance in Oblivion where he promised to "worship the ground you walk on" and ultimately shower you with praise to an annoying degree.

The character's re-appearance in Starfield pretty much guarantees we're going to be treated to some hilarious lines along with lots of irritating behaviour. The official description for the "Hero Worshipped" trait in Starfield (which is entirely optional) describes the Adoring Fan as showing up randomly and jabbering at you incessantly, but the plus side is that he'll join your ship's crew and give you gifts. Is it worth it? We'll leave that up to you!
