I’m obsessed with Game of Thrones. Literally obsessed. I wait in anticipation for the new episode every week. I spend entire Mondays reading through theories and recaps and tweets with hilariously perfect memes. I practice pole to the theme song sometimes. It’s all I want to think about, all I want to talk about. I love it. And it seems I’m not the only one. Some 17 million people watched the season 8 premiere when it aired, breaking all sorts of viewing records for HBO and television in general, especially considering HBO isn’t as accessible in as many homes as regular, noncable networks are.
It’s safe to say that Game of Thrones is a cultural phenomenon. And like any great phenomenon, it should be immortalized in a fun and fancy listicle. Right? Right. So, without further ado, I give you Game of Thrones Characters as Pole Moves!
Reader beware: Spoilers ahead!
We start this list with the most badass character in the series. Arya Stark. The girl who trained to be a crazy ninja assassin for seven seasons straight. The girl who’s literally worn the faces of dead people. The girl who killed the MOTHER EFFIN Night King. That girl is a Fonji. There’s no doubt about it.
Jon Snow (or Aegon Targaryen, if you want to get technical)
Ah Jon Snow. Our moody, brooding, dashing hero. He’s dramatic, he’s strong, he was killed and then brought back to life. He’s an Inverted Crucifix. A regular Crucifix just wouldn’t be dramatic enough, you know?

I had a hard time figuring out what move Sansa would be. She’s a complicated character, in all the best ways. But ultimately, I think she’s an Outside Leg Hang (or Gemini, if you like). It’s a fairly simple move, sure, but it’s also a strong one. And just like Sansa, it’s essential.
Hi. Bran’s character arc started with a dramatic fall, and ended with him just sitting around knowing things. He’s a Sad Girl Drop.
The Mother of Dragons is most definitely a Dragon Tail.

I do believe the man who “drinks and knows things” would have to be a Martini Sit, no?

It should go without saying that this famously one-handed character would be any move that only needs one hand to perform. These are usually strong, complicated moves, which I’d say describes Jaime perfectly.
Cersei is cunning. She is difficult. She is sneaky. She’s a Sneaky-V.

Pole dance is a difficult hobby to maintain. We won’t always be at the top of our game. We can’t always think of new ways to transition into familiar tricks. We don’t always feel strong or sexy or bendy. Sometimes we hit a wall. And when that happens, it’s frustrating.
