People are channelling Arya Stark's Night King killing knife move from Game of Thrones.

Arya Stark's incredible victory at the Battle of Winterfell on Game of Thrones has inspired the Arya Challenge on social media.

Warning: This post contains spoilers for season 8 episode 3 of Game of Thrones.

Game of Thrones fans are doing the Arya challenge after the beloved character assassinated the Night King with an incredible knife move.

Arya came for the Night King just as he was turning his attention to Bran. In the heart stopping scene, the Night King grabs Arya by the throat and she drops her knife into her other hand, swift enough to stab the Night King in the abdomen.


This iconic move mirrored a previous scene between Arya and Breanne of Tarth, where Arya used the same hand switching knife trick.
