It's safe to say that social media has been losing its collective mind over the latest season of the hit HBO series Game of Thrones, which is all set to conclude this year.

After years of buildup and anticipation, we finally saw the dreaded Night's King face off against the army of the living at Winterfell, and the undead hordes were vanquished thanks to the brave efforts of a fan-favourite character.

Sadly, there were plenty of other characters who didn't make it, and it seems as though even more people are due to kick the bucket in the upcoming three episodes.

Check out the teaser for the fourth episode of Game of Thrones season eight below:

However, while watching the climax, many people noticed that a fair few characters actually looked weirdly similar to the cast of another hit fantasy franchise.

This franchise is a bit lighter on the deaths and heavier on the laughs, but still features a colourful cast of dragons, knights in armour, and vengeful monarchs, which have reminded many of the GoT cast. Don't believe me? Then scroll down to check out some choice comparisons.

However, the Shrek comparisons weren't the only talking point on last night's episode. A number of viewers shared the same complaint about just how dark many of the key scenes were.
