The Very Best of the Skyrim 'Arrow in the Knee' Meme

One of the most talked about games to come out this year was Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. But for all the praise it's getting, one thing has become clear: all guards in the world used to be adventurers before taking an unfortunate arrow to the knee. It seems that every single one has that story. It's so prevelant in the game that the excuse has filtered into every comment section on the internet for the last week, as well as to all the most popular memes.

The Skyrim Arrow in the Knee Meme is what you would call a cross-meme meme. It doesn't really have it's own specific look, the only thing linking all of them together is the phrase "I used to be an adventurer like you. Then I took an arrow in the knee."

Below is a list of the funniest and best Skyrim Arrow to the Knee memes. Vote up your favorites or they might take an arrow in the knee.
