This Twitter Account Proves 'GOT' Is Just An R-Rated Version Of 'Shrek' (Photos)


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."

If you've ever had déjà vu while watching "GoT"...'s probably because it's pretty much the same thing as "Shrek."

The Twitter account @shrekgot recently called out the copycats of Westeros... creating a bunch of side-by-side comparisons that are spot on.

There's a wedding ceremony with a noble dwarf...

...and a pair of siblings who look just like the Queen Mother and her undercover lover.

Is that the Kingslayer or Prince Charming?

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.

A lot of scenes from "GoT" just look like "Shrek" with real people...

Like this sword fight...

...and this giant who carries around his little friend.

Sansa is basically Princess Fiona, minus the kung fu skills.

Olenna Tyrell could pass as the Fairy Godmother.

Not to mention, King Joffrey really resembles this little assh*le.

From the fighting scenes...

To the flying dragons...

And the heartbreaking death of our favorite characters...'s not hard to see "GoT" and "Shrek" are basically the same.

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?
