You know how there are some people you size up on the street and think inwardly that you can probably take them down in a fight? Well I’m this close to certain that no one has ever had that thought while looking at Game of Thrones’ Hafthór Björnsson. The actor’s character, The Mountain, made his biggest mark on the HBO fantasy in the epic brawl against Oberyn “The Viper” Martell, which ended in a brutal eye-gouging and head-splitting. And while I doubt we’ll see the Icelandic behemoth actually pushing his thumbs into anyone eye sockets in real life, he’s definitely known for showing off just how effective his muscle mass is.

Here are four instances (among many) where Hafthór Björnsson has proven himself to be so insanely strong that I’d instantly trust the guy in a fight against real-life White Walkers and dragons. All of his feats of strength have us really wishing he could return to the show in Season 6 and/or beyond for more bone-shattering carnage. But for now, his nonfiction badassery will suffice.

He Can Pull A 17-Ton Truck
Hafthór Björnsson took to Instagram the other day (presumably smashing his smartphone to pieces with his jackhammer thumbs) to share the video above, in which he can be seen strapped to the front of a 3,400-lb. big rig. This is a cautionary tale for anyone who ever tries to hold Björnsson hostage by tying him to a truck, as this beast of a man just started pulling it along as if it were a slightly petulant dog with an uncalled-for interest in a patch of flowers. Björnsson eschewed his normal weightlifting for this monumental achievement as part of his training for the upcoming Arnold Classic South Africa competition. And according to TMZ Sports, he pulled it around for multiple laps. Just typing this has popped my shoulder out of socket and I possibly have a hernia now.
