If you're a big "Game of Thrones" fanatic, be prepared to have your mind blown.

It turns out your beloved HBO show is pretty much an R-rated version of "Shrek."

Now, I know what you're probably thinking: By the gods of the Seven Kingdoms, there's no way "GoT" could be anything like a fairytale story starring a big, green ogre and his adorable donkey BFF.

But, just hear me out on this one.

Recently, some genius created the Twitter account @shrekgot and set out to uncover all of the insane similarities between "Game of Thrones" and "Shrek."

But unlike "Shrek," "Game of Thrones" probably won't end happily ever after.

Take a look at the pictures below to see proof "GoT" is really just a ripoff of "Shrek."

Prince Oberyn is pretty much a human version of Puss in Boots; they're both known for their signature eyes -- or lack thereof in Prince Oberyn's case.

Ramsay Bolton likes to torture his prisoners just like Lord Farquaad. However, Lord Farquaad just breaks off legs instead of, well, you know.

Really, what are the odds Daenerys and Donkey would both have names starting with the letter D and a bunch of fire-breathing dragon babies?
