The latest newcomer to join Guilty Gear Strive has been making waves not only for being the game's newest playable fighter, but also because the internet has fallen in love with her beautiful visuals, and one particularly interesting pose she makes.

We're talking, of course, about Jack-O and the #Jack-OChallenge. The character's crouching pose is an intriguing blend of awkward and sexy, and has led to many fans around the internet posting images of other characters in the pose as well as some photographs of a handful of daring in-real-life attempts. Developers ArcSystemWorks have even responded to this challenge with a brief nod on Twitter.

We'll get started with Arc System Works' playful reaction to all the buzz about the Jack-O challenge. The idea here is that we get to see her actual reaction when she finds out what exactly the challenge is, via some social media scrolling, for the first time.

We've otherwise rounded up a gallery of fan art mostly featuring Jack-O in various beautiful poses, but also with one nod to the upcoming Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl as newly revealed characters April O'Neil and CatDog both take on the Jack-O challenge.

While some of the artists have fully embraced Jack-O's increasingly famous crouching animation, others have taken a bit of a different stance and illustrated her in many other various poses.

In all of our perusing of social media content centered around this character, we've certainly seen a handful of disapproving reactions to all the hype the crouching pose is currently getting.

Check out the gallery here and let us know which of these were your favorites and why. You can see a list of links back to the respective artists below if you'd like to see their pages and more of their work.
