EPIC Maneuver is a popular YTMND meme dating back to July 2006, after a user named “airbornebryan” uploaded an animated gif of Geordie (Star Trek: The Next Generation) doing an overly dramatic roll to evade capture, accompanied by equally gravitating BG music--“Ghost Love Score” by the Finnish power-metal band Nightwish.

A typical “epic maneuver” usually involves a short action footage that is deemed unnecessarily/comically theatrical, whilst the Nightwish song is played in the background to further emphasize the epic nature of maneuver.

Notable Cases of Epic Maneuvers

Geordie’s Epic Maneuver

Epic Abandon Ship Maneuver

Macguyver’s Epic Maneuver

Epic Gun Cocking Maneuver


The meme quickly caught on and became an instant classic within the YTMND community, yielding hundreds of other “epic maneuver” derivatives. Today, epic maneuvers can still be found, although their popularity has largely dissipated.
