Jason Momoa competed against Jimmy Fallon in a trident-throwing contest on Thursday's episode of The Tonight Show.

Fallon explained that the game was inspired by Momoa's upcoming film Aquaman, in which he plays the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis. "In the movie, of course, Aquaman is a master of the trident," he said as Momoa stared down his competition.

The target was Aquaman's nemesis Ocean Master. Each body part was assigned a certain amount of points. The competitors were instructed to throw their tridents at the target and the person with the most points at the end of three rounds would be declared the winner.

Finding Nemo characters Nemo and Dory were also included on the target, though any competitor to hit the fish would receive negative points.

Momoa took off his jacket and necklace before the competition began. After he received a round of applause from the audience, the actor encouraged Fallon to take off his jacket.

Fallon kicked off the competition. "You sick son of a bitch," he yelled, before he threw his trident. While the trident hit the board, it did not stick to the target.

The actor's first trident landed on Ocean's Master's lower stomach, which earned him 10 points. "You better knock before you come to my house," he told Fallon.

The host and actor both failed to hit the target on their second tries, which solidified the score at 10-0.

Fallon tied the game on his third try when he threw his trident at Ocean Master's lower stomach. "You better ring the doorbell if you come to my house," Fallon shouted at the actor.

Momoa eventually won the game when his third trident landed on the target.
