Warning: Spoilers Ahead
The now infamous scene between Arya Stark and the Night King during the Battle of Winterfell has spawned a viral challenge. In it, Arya drops her Valyrian steel dagger when the Night King grabs her by the neck, only to catch it in her other hand and well, stick ‘em with the pointy end.
Game of Thrones fans have been posting videos of themselves trying out Arya’s boss moves for themselves under the hashtag #TheArya or #AryaChallenge
Some have gone the safer route, deciding to do away with the dagger. The moves are still pretty cool though.
Others, who presumably weren’t taxed with fighting an army of the dead, decided it was a perfect way to up their selfie game.

A lacrosse player co-opted the move to celebrate his team’s big win.

Most Twitter users probably don’t have daggers lying around (or so we’d hope), so they found some clever substitutes instead.
Like a pen...
...and the TV remote.
And a banana?
#TheArya has even turned into a dance move. If you’re still doing the KiKi Challenge, get with the programme, my friend!
If you’re thinking of taking on #TheArya yourself, we’ll leave you with some wise words from one smart Twitter user.
