Oblique cases are usually all cases apart from the Nominative and the Accusative. In Direct/Oblique systems, such as Romanian or Hindi, the Direct case refers to the Subject or Direct object, and the Oblique to the indirect object and Pre/Postpositional phrases. However, in Old French terminology, the Direct is just the subject, and the Oblique everything else. I hope I got that right...
