Of all the terrifying breeds of dragon in the latest Elder Scrolls game – from Frost to Elder – none inspires more fear than the dreaded Glitch Dragon. This is my encounter with one such beast…or at least, what's left of it.

Join me and Jeff "Hangtime" Marchiafava (though I hardly let him get a word in edgewise) as we encounter a broken dragon. For some reason, the creature dies and surrenders its soul before I score a single hit. Instead of crumbling into a heap, the dragon's skeleton continues flying and breathing flames – despite the fact that it doesn't have any flesh left.

See the bizarre sequence unfold in the video below. When you're done, you can see more amusing Skyrim glitches here. If you want other Skyrim tips, check out how to get married and how get infinite XP.
