"Took an arrow to the knee" is a popular internet meme derived from the video game "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim".

In the game, different characters in the game will say, "I used to be an adventurer like you, then I took an arrow to the knee". To parody this the meme has taken the format, "I used to X, then I took an arrow to the knee".

This meme is usually found in the comment sections of various websites and is expressed with facetious intent.
I used to not know what this meme meant, but then I took an arrow to the knee.

I was watching this video, but then I took an arrow in the knee.
