- List of Shrek characters
This is a list of characters from the Shrek series.
Shrek is the main protagonist of the films. He prides himself on being a big, green, terrifying ogre. He begins the series as an antisocial hermit until he meets his soon-to-be best friend, Donkey. In a deal with Lord Farquaad, he and Donkey embark on a quest to save Princess Fiona from the castle she'd been confined in. Despite their differences, Shrek and Fiona fall in love, marry at the end of the first movie, and have three ogre babies in the third film. Shrek is voiced by Mike Myers (singing voice is provided by Michael Gough).
Donkey is Shrek's best friend and sidekick, and the secondary protagonist of the films. He is a talking donkey and fathers a litter of "dronkeys" (Donkey Jr, Debbie, Coco, Bananas, Peanut, Parfait and Èclair) with his love interest, Dragon (hence the name "dronkies"). Donkey is voiced by Eddie Murphy.
Princess Fiona is the princess of Far, Far Away, daughter of King Harold and Queen Lillian, and Shrek's wife as of the end of the first film. She begins the series in the form of a beautiful princess who transforms into an ogress every night when the sun sets. At the end of the first movie the spell over her is broken and she permanently takes the form of an ogress when she realizes that Shrek is her true love. Princess Fiona is voiced by Cameron Diaz, (singing voice is provided by Renee Sands). In the first movie, Fiona can be seen as a human in the magic mirror.
Puss in Boots
Puss in Boots is Shrek's friend and sidekick. He is a smooth-talking cat with a Spanish accent, and usually wears a cavalier's hat, a belt with a sword, a small black cape, and small Corinthian boots. Puss's first appearance was as a minor antagonist-turned-ally in Shrek 2, much like Dragon in the first film. He often overpowers his enemies by distracting them with his cute looks. He is also prone to common cat behavior such as coughing up hairballs and chasing spotlights, which usually results in him being defeated or captured. He is voiced by Antonio Banderas in both the English and Spanish versions of the films. The character is partially a parody of Zorro.
Dragon resembles most classical interpretations of European dragons: she has keeled, ruby-colored scales, leathery bat wings, long, crested ears, bony spikes along her jawline, a row of dorsal spines, slitted eye pupils, and a long, spade-tipped, prehensile tail to aid in balance. Dragon does not speak, but does employ physically expressive body language and noises to communicate. Like her partner Donkey, Dragon is never given a proper name in the films. It's not known how potent her fire is, but its shown to be able to melt metal in seconds, such as Prince Charming's sword in the third movie. She is also shown to have a fondness for knights; her favorite dish, having been shown in the first movie to have a recipe book for preparing them for dinner.
In the first film, Dragon is charged with guarding Princess Fiona in her isolated castle, and thus is initially seen by Shrek and Donkey as an antagonist. While Shrek attempts to rescue the princess, Donkey finds himself at the mercy of Dragon. Shrek and Donkey are able to escape, leaving Dragon behind. Dragon returns at the end of the film, having escaped and abandoned the volcanic keep, and aids Shrek in his quest to save Fiona and stop her from marrying Lord Farquaad by swallowing him. She and Donkey make amends and begin a relationship. At the end of the film when Shrek and Fiona get married, Fiona tosses her bouquet and Dragon catches it. She looks over at Donkey, who then looks at Shrek with shock and slight terror. After Shrek nods to Donkey (giving them his blessing), Donkey accepts Dragon as his mate.
In Shrek 2, Dragon is married to Donkey and is absent for much of the film, but nevertheless becomes one of Shrek's good friends. Dragon makes a full appearance in a post-credits scene, in which she arrives with six young "dronkeys" who meet their father for the first time.
Dragon played a slightly more prominent role in Shrek the Third. She and her baby dronkeys stay behind with Fiona and the other "princess" characters to await Shrek and Donkey's return. When Prince Charming attacks Far, Far Away, Dragon is able to knock down a number of witches from the sky, causing her and the dronkeys to be captured. At the film's climax, Dragon helps dispose of Prince Charming by knocking over a stone stage prop on top of him. She is easily detained (however Charming's forces had the power of sheer numbers and were better equipped opposed to Shrek who had to use makeshift means to defeat Dragon), as opposed to her earlier appearance where she posed a significant challenge to Shrek; however, in the play scene, she goes on to kill Charming. She is later seen in Shrek's swamp while Shrek and Fiona are caring for their ogre triplets.
Dragon also plays a fairly minor role in Shrek Forever After At the beginning, she flies Shrek and the family to Far Far Away for the triplets' birthday. In the alternate universe, she is still a savage monster due to the alternate timeline created by the contract and Rumpelstilskin's pet. He attempts to feed Shrek and Fiona to her but they are able to escape. With the original timeline restored, Dragon is her friendly self, seen playfully gobbling her husband in a karaoke scene without swallowing, contrasting the parallel universe and underlining the depth of their relationship.
The Gingerbread Man
The Gingerbread Man, also known as "Gingy", is a talking, anthropomorphic gingerbread man, and one of Shrek's friends. He hates losing his gumdrop buttons and is difficult to capture. Also in Shrek the Halls, he is afraid of Santa, as Santa has eaten his girlfriend. Voiced by Conrad Vernon.
The Gingerbread Man was created by The Muffin Man. He is small and a fast runner, making him difficult to catch. He is made out of a normal carved-out gingerbread with icing and gumdrop buttons. He adores those gumdrop buttons for his life, begging Lord Farquaad not to pull them off.
He is impatient. This can be seen in Shrek 2 and Shrek The Third. One example in Shrek 2 is when Pinocchio cannot move himself while he is freeing Shrek and the trio from prison, Gingy sighs immediately and goes down to help. He's also a little bit wild and a prankster, as it can be seen the moment Shrek and Fiona leave for Far Far Away, he and the others have a loud party in his house. He's also cunning and able to distract others, such as when Lord Farquaad demands to know where the other fairy tale creatures are, he gives an answer by reciting the Muffin Man nursery rhyme to which Farquaad believes momentarily. He's also able to stall time for Fiona and the other princesses in Shrek the Third, by trying to ignore Prince Charming and Captain Hook by singing the On the Good Ship Lollipop to himself after his life flashes before him.
In "Shrek Forever After," he is shown to have a dark, violent side. In an alternate universe with Rumpelstiltskin as King, he fights and kills gingerbread animals as a gladiator for a living. He also has no qualms about trying to attack and bring in Shrek, despite being so much smaller. He is eaten by an overweight Puss in Boots in the alternate universe, but is seen alive again at the Ogre Twins' birthday party when the original timeline is restored.
Arthur Pendragon (more commonly known as Artie) is a supporting character in the Shrek film series, voiced by Justin Timberlake. He is the only heir apparent (other than Shrek himself) to the throne of Far Far Away. He only appeared in Shrek the Third. He is loosely based on King Arthur.
Artie was originally going to appear in the last film, but he was deleted. It is possible that in the time change and alternate reality created by Rumpelstiltskin he is transferred back to Worcestershire. However in the end, once the true timeline is restored, Artie is presumably restored to his position as the current King of Far Far Away.
In the first film, his creator Geppetto is seen when he sells Pinocchio for five shillings. Later, he is banished to Shrek's swamp, among the others, by Lord Farquaad. In Shrek 2, Pinocchio has become one of Shrek's best friends. He helps Shrek and Princess Fiona in guarding their swamp while they visit Far, Far Away. He and the others later travel to Far, Far Away to free Shrek, Puss in Boots, and Donkey, who have been captured. They manage to get into the castle and stop the Fairy Godmother and Prince Charming. He sings "Mr. Roboto" in Far, Far Away Idol.
In Shrek The Third, Pinocchio attends Fiona's baby shower along with several other fairy tale creatures, while Shrek, Donkey, and Puss in Boots are away. Charming and his followers crash the party and try to trick Pinocchio into telling them of Shrek's location, seeing that the puppet cannot lie; however, he avoids this by talking in circles. When Shrek and his company return, they find Pinocchio imprisoned in a miniature theater, where he was forced to give marionette performances for paying customers. He is freed and helps to defeat Charming and the other evil fairy tale creatures.
In Shrek Forever After, Pinocchio is seen running a library where Rumpelstiltskin is tearing some books. Later, in the alternate universe, he nearly signs a contract with Rumpelstiltskin to become a real boy, but ink is accidentally spilled all over the document. He later attempts to gain Rumpelstiltskin's "Deal of a Lifetime", by painting Gepetto green and passing him off as Shrek. He is a main character in Shrek SuperSlam, his Slam move being the Buzz Bomber. According to the story, Pinocchio works at Friar's Fat Boy. Pinocchio also appears as an unlockable racer in the game Shrek Smash and Crash Racing. His kart is a wooden horse, and his personal item is his long nose.
Big Bad Wolf
The Big Bad Wolf is based loosely on the fairy tale character of Big Bad Wolf. He is voiced by Aron Warner. He is a kind character, despite classical adaptations of him. He rarely speaks, and when he does, his voice is somewhat dull and monotonous. He wears a pink dress, presumably from the grandmother of the Little Red Riding Hood. He is also friends with The Three Little Pigs in the films despite an incident in Far, Far Away Idol. In the first film, he is among the fairy-tale creatures who are banished to Shrek's swamp.
In Shrek 2, he has become friends with Shrek and the gang. He helps Shrek and Princess Fiona in guarding their swamp while they visit Far, Far Away. He and the others later travel to Far, Far Away to free Shrek, Puss in Boots and Donkey, having been captured. After that, they managed to get into the castle and stop the Fairy Godmother and Prince Charming. In Shrek The Third, he, along with several other fairy tale creatures, attends Fiona's baby shower while Shrek, Donkey, and Puss in Boots are away. When Charming and his evil followers crash the party, the Big Bad Wolf and the others stage a calm tea party. He also helps defeat Charming and the other evil fairy tale creatures from killing Shrek before the entire kingdom.
He plays a small role in Shrek Forever After in the ogre triplets' birthday party and as Rumpelstiltskin's servant in the alternate universe.
Three Little Pigs
The Three Little Pigs are friends with Shrek and the gang. All three voiced by Cody Cameron; they have appeared in all Shrek films. In the original book and in the film, they are among the many fairy tale creatures to be banished into Shrek's swamp by Lord Farquaad. They also have a German accent.
They have a larger role in Shrek 2. By then, the pigs are best friends with Shrek prior to the events of the film. At the start of the film, the three pigs help look after Shrek's and Fiona's house while they visit the kingdom of Far Far Away. Later in the film, they see Shrek, Donkey and Puss in Boots arrested by local police officers in Far Far Away, and then free them, heading to the castle to stop Prince Charming. They managed to stop the Fairy Godmother's scheme and they celebrate. They sing a song with Big Bad Wolf in Far Far Away Idol.
The pigs are less prominent in the third film. They appear at the start of the film at Prince Charming's new job; an actor in a dinner theatre. They jeer him along with the rest of the crowd, leading Charming to leave the stage. They later appear in the castle pretending to have tea with the others while Shrek, Donkey and Puss in Boots are finding Artie, the apparent heir to the throne, and Fiona, Queen Lillian and the princesses escape via a secret passage. Prince Charming storms in and demands Shrek's location. Under pressure, one of the pigs reveals Shrek's plan, and ends up locked up somewhere secret. The pigs are later freed and they head to the castle and managed to stop Prince Charming from killing Shrek in his show.
At the final chapter, Shrek Forever After, the Three Little Pigs played small roles, they all appeared at the ogre triplet's birthday party, they ate the occasion cake. Later in the alternate universe, they appear as attendants to Fifi in Rumpelstiltskin's castle.
In Scared Shrekless, they appear after Gingy's story, running quickly and yelling "weeweeweewee...", then the Wolf comments "They're gonna do that all the way home."
It has been stated in the introduction to Shrek 4-D that their names are "Ham, Sausage, and Bacon" but in other versions their names are "Hay, Sticks and Bricks". In the end credits for The Pig Who Cried Werewolf, their names are Heimlich, Dieter, and Chef. They are voiced by Sean Bishop in this film, rather than Cody Cameron, who voices "Horst". Aron Warner still voices Wolf.
Three Blind Mice
The Three Blind Mice, based on the fairy-tale creatures, Three Blind Mice, are friends with Shrek and the gang. They all suffer from blindness and that is why they sport black sunglasses and all carry canes. Unlike the fairy-tale they are based on, their tails are not cut off and they show no signs of injuries. They are voiced by Christopher Knights and Simon J. Smith. In the Shrek in the Swamp Karaoke Dance Party, they are voiced by Mike Myers. Their names are Forder, Gorder and Horder and also Gorder's name mentioned in the first film.
At the beginning of the first film, they are banished into Shrek's swamp among the others by Lord Farquaad. They are not seen again until the final musical number "I'm a believer", during which two are temporarily turned into horses (by the fairies of Sleeping Beauty) to pull a wagon made from an onion.
In Shrek 2, the Three Blind Mice become three of Shrek's best friends prior to the events of the film. They help Shrek and Princess Fiona in guarding their swamp while they visit Far Far Away. They are later seen, watching the Royal Far Far Away Ball and when Shrek (in his human form) is thrown into a police truck. Once seeing (or rather hearing) this, the Blind Mice and the others travel to Far Far Away to free Shrek, Puss In Boots and Donkey. After that, they managed to get into the castle and stop the Fairy Godmother and Prince Charming. They later appear in Far Far Away Idol singing "I Can See Clearly Now."
In Shrek The Third, the Three Blind Mice only appear in two scenes, one, during the funeral of King Harold, and two, during when Shrek was about to leave to find the new king of Far Far Away.
In Shrek Forever After, the mice are only seen in the normal universe, although in a deleted scene it shows that they also exist in the alternate universe.
Dronkeys are the hybrid offspring of Dragon and Donkey. The dronkeys were introduced in Shrek 2 as little more than a stinger gag. Audience members missed having Dragon in the film, which was revealed to the filmmakers during test screenings. Dragon reunites with Donkey in Far Far Away, only to have a surprise for him in tow - six young "dronkeys," who take to their father immediately. Donkey is delighted, and dubs the dronkeys "our little mutant babies." Their names are revealed to be Eclair, Bananas, Peanut, Parfait, Coco and Debbie.
The dronkeys have very little screen time in Shrek The Third. They appear initially to give Shrek a wake up call, then to bid farewell to Donkey before his journey with Shrek. Near the film's climax, Donkey frees them from Prince Charming's capture. In addition, a few dronkeys make an appearance at the film's closing, when Shrek and Fiona are caring for their newborn triplets. The dronkeys also serve as background action in the Christmas television special. They are featured playing with the ogre children of Shrek and Fiona, and seen flying around while their mother dances. They have antlers and fly around in Donkey's Christmas story. All the dronkeys love their parents, especially their father, and have appeared to become good friends with the Ogre Triplets. This could mirror their fathers' friendship with Shrek, only theirs is much friendlier and shows less arguments between them. As well in the alternate universe when Donkey is told he has kids he asks: "Tell me, are my babies cute, or do they just make people feel uncomfortable?"
The only individual to be given any resemblance of a personality is Bananas, who has bright green irises which are noticeably wall-eyed, and frequently sneezes small tongues of flame. Donkey refers to Bananas as "my special boy!"
Some confusion exists as to the missing dronkey from Shrek 2. When the dronkeys were first introduced in the film's post-credits scene, there were six total - including a unique individual which was red in color like her mother. He is nowhere to be seen in Shrek the Third; this is a continuity error on the part of the filmmakers. Yet in Donkey's Christmas Shrektacular, set after Shrek Forever After, there are only four.
In the Shrek Forever After, the dronkeys are seen playing with Shrek's triplets, appeared at their birthday and also a cause of nuisance for Shrek. They are not seen in the alternate universe as they do not exist on that timeline.
Farkle, Fergus, & Felicia
Farkle, Fergus, & Felicia (also known as the Ogre Babies) are the ogre children of Shrek and Princess Fiona. There are two males (Farkle and Fergus) and one female (Felicia) (indicated by a pink bow in her hair).
In Shrek The Third, Fiona reveals she is pregnant when she tells Shrek that when they return to their swamp, there will be some little 'ogre feet' too. Before their birth, Shrek dreams of hundreds of ogre babies while on his journey with Donkey and Puss in Boots to find Artie. In the dream, they flood Shrek's house and laugh at Shrek while he is visibly naked and wearing his graduation hat. By the end of the film, they have been born and are shown playing around the swamp. Two of them pull Puss's tail and head (putting a pacifier into his mouth). Another pulls some ear wax from Shrek's ear and uses it to draw pictures with his/her left hand. Later that night, they are shown sleeping and snoring all in one small baby cot. Shrek and Fiona constantly give them slug juice for drinks. The ogre triplets are shown prominently in the credits, along with Puss in Boots and Donkey. Two of the siblings are shown to enjoy seeing Puss, hugging him tightly and call him "Kitty". The two are shown to sometimes have a tug-o-war over him, much to Puss's displeasure.
They are seen more in Shrek the Halls enjoying the seasons with their father and ecstatically enjoying their first Christmas with their parents. When Donkey brings the others to enjoy the holidays with them, the triplets proceed to do what they love the most seeing Puss. Which is hugging him too tightly, patting his back, and tugging on his tail. Among enjoying various Christmas stories, they actually get to see Santa Claus at the end.
In "Shrek Forever After", the three are 1 year old and are learning to speak, and their names are revealed: Farkle, Fergus, & Felicia. Which in the Shrek Forever After movie you can see easily that Felicia is the only one who actually spoken. The triplets do not appear in the alternate universe as their parents, Shrek and Fiona have never met in that universe. They are voiced by Cody Cameron.
Queen Lillian makes her debut in the film Shrek 2. Although initially surprised at Fiona's transformation into an ogre, she is far more understanding of what has happened and seeing that her daughter is deeply in love, accepts Shrek into their family. When King Harold is turned back into the Frog King at the end of the movie, she still accepts him as she did years ago. She and Harold are a reference to The Frog Prince.
In Shrek the Third, she is widowed, and becomes a more determined character, leading the pack of princesses through a series of tunnels in the castle and breaking two walls with her head, whilst humming "My Favorite Things" and "A Spoonful of Sugar" (songs originally sung by Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music and Mary Poppins, respectively). She is able to rally the other princesses from being damsels in distress to independent fighters. It was also revealed in the movie that Fiona inherited her fighting skills from her mother (Lillian even asks "Well, you didn't think you got your fighting skills from your father, did you?") Lillian is seen after the movie's finale in Shrek's swamp home, happily seeing her grandchildren and plays with an ogre triplet, who spits up on her dress. She initially looks distressed and a little disgusted, this changes as she finds it adorable.
Lillian is seen briefly in Shrek Forever After in a number of flashbacks, showing her and Harold's decision to visit Rumpelstiltskin to free their daughter from the curse before Shrek saved her. In the alternate universe it is revealed she and Harold literally disappeared after signing over the kingdom to Rumpelstiltskin. Her last appearance is at the end of the movie, seen celebrating the triplets' birthday.
King Harold makes his debut in Shrek 2. When his daughter Fiona arrives at the castle with her new husband, he is surprised that they are both ogres. King Harold had secretly made a promise to the Fairy Godmother that her son Prince Charming would marry Fiona. King Harold hires Puss in Boots to assassinate Shrek. King Harold then succumbs to guilt when Fiona finds out that Shrek is not around. Harold at first refuses when the Fairy Godmother asks him to give the love potion to Fiona that will cause her to fall in love with Prince Charming, because he recoils from this invasion of her free will, but he is forced to acquiesce by some dark threat of disclosure; in the event, when Fiona states that she loved the old Shrek (rather the 'new' one that Prince Charming is pretending to be), Harold swaps the cup which contains the potion for his own. At the ball toward the end of the film, Harold protects Fiona and Shrek from a blast of magic from Fairy Godmother's wand. He is finally transformed into his original form of the Frog Prince when he is hit by the Fairy Godmother's magic wand. The wife seems not at all unhappy about this turn of events. After this, he apologizes to Shrek and accepts him into the family, his wife saying that he is more of a man for accepting Shrek and Fiona's marriage than he ever was when he was actually human.
King Harold makes a very brief appearance in Shrek The Third as a frog king where he sadly dies of a sickness (it is stated in other materials such as The Legend of Shrek, a storybook, that the transition between human to frog mixed up his age and accelerated the aging process). He tells Shrek on his deathbed that he and Fiona are next in line for the throne of Far Far Away, and Shrek refuses as he cannot imagine an ogre as king. The king dies after telling Shrek about Fiona's cousin Arthur.
King Harold made his final appearance in Shrek Forever After. In the film, he appears very briefly in a couple of flashbacks; the first one shows him and Lillian about to make a deal with Rumpelstiltskin, but they break it off at the last moment. In the alternate reality of the second flashback, Harold and Lillian literally disappear after signing over the kingdom to Rumpelstiltskin. At the end of the movie the original timeline is restored, leaving the current time a year or so after Harold's death (as seen in Shrek the Third). However, there is a large painting of him in which the face moves, indicating that his spirit inhabits the picture. Unlike the previous films he is not seen in his frog form at any point.
The king's role is a partly reference to another character Cleese once starred; Basil Fawlty, from the sitcom Fawlty Towers. The king once makes a reference to 'his old war wound' (UK version - in the US version, this is "the old hunting wound"), to avoid his wife. This is obviously based on Fawlty's character, who often uses his 'honourable war wound' (a shrapnel shot from the Korean War) as an excuse, to rescue himself from displeasing situations. Also, the two characters share similar character traits.
Doris the Ugly Stepsister
Doris (voiced by Larry King) makes her first appearance in Shrek 2 and she returns in Shrek The Third as well as the following film Shrek Forever After. Unlike other ugly sisters, she is an ally and best friend to Fiona. She's first seen as an unusually masculine female bartender at the Poison Apple. She is depicted as a tall independent woman with purple-themed clothes who wears too much makeup.
Doris is first seen in Shrek 2 when King Harold secretly enters The Poison Apple Club in which she is working as a bartender. She recommends the king to Puss In Boots for the task of assassinating Shrek. Later, she is seen when Shrek, in his human form, has some drinks with Puss and Donkey after thinking that he must let Princess Fiona go. Near the climax of the film, Doris points King Harold to a door guarded by the Fairy Godmother's bodyguards in which Prince Charming and the Fairy Godmother are secretly meeting. At first, she has a crush on Prince Charming and forces him to kiss her at the end of the film. She is accused of being ugly in Far Far Away Idol by Simon Cowell, where she sings Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun."
In Shrek the Third, Doris becomes one of Shrek's best friends prior to the events of the film. In the beginning of the film, Doris is briefly mentioned by Mabel when Prince Charming visits The Poison Apple. Mabel says that Doris does not belong here and this indicates that Doris is residing with Princess Fiona in the castle. She is also seen during Fiona's baby shower but she escapes by a hidden trapdoor in the room when Charming starts to enter the castle. Later, she gets imprisoned by Charming after he invades Far Far Away. The princesses, Doris, Donkey and Puss manage to escape and they infiltrate the castle to confront Charming. In the end Doris and Mabel finally meet in Charming's play.
Doris makes a very brief appearance in Shrek Forever After. She has only a couple of scenes as well as a couple of lines.
Snow White, is one of Princess Fiona's friends, and is based on the fairy-tale character, Snow White as well as the Disney version from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. She has a talent in singing and uses it to charm animals and direct them to follow her orders. She is shown to be very prideful and vain, even boasting how she won fairest in the land from the Wicked Queen. She is voiced by Amy Poehler. In the first film, Snow White cameos as one of the fairy-tale creatures to be banished to Shrek's swamp. She is shown sleeping inside her coffin and being handled by her 7 dwarves. When Lord Farquaad is forced to choose a wife, Snow White is the second choice, seen sleeping in the glass coffin. She is also shown at Shrek and Fiona's wedding fighting with Cinderella to catch Fiona's bouquet.
In Shrek 2, Snow White is briefly mentioned when the Fairy Godmother is explaining to Shrek that ogres don't live happily ever after.
Snow White appears more prominently in Shrek The Third. According to this, she's shown to wear red. She becomes friends with Princess Fiona, Queen Lillian, Doris, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty prior to the events of the film. However, Prince Charming interrupts Fiona's baby shower after she gives her a dwarf as a gift to babysit her babies. She says that she has 6 more of them at home. She escapes with Fiona, Queen Lillian, Doris, and the other princesses. She is later betrayed by Rapunzel and imprisoned in a dungeon. They manage to escape and they head towards the castle. She tricks the guards - talking trees - by singing a high tone to charm the animals (With the same singing voice as the Disney version of Snow White) and suddenly command them to attack the trees, by screaming (the same scream from "The Immigrant Song" by Led Zeppelin) Her plan works and they enter the castle's grounds and avoided the knights who are guarding it. Snow White, along with the other princesses, Doris and Queen Lillian, arrives just in time to stop Prince Charming from killing Shrek before the entire kingdom. After Charming is defeated, she is seen talking to the other princesses, Doris and Queen Lillian in the background. In the first movie, she can be seen in her coffin on Shrek's table
While it is unclear as to wether or not Snow White has a spouse at one point prior to a big battle Snow is scene ripping her sleeves off her dress and displaying a tattoo on her upper arm with the name Dopey and a heart surrounding it.
Cinderella is one of Princess Fiona's friends. Like the character she is based on, she wears her pair of glass slippers throughout the events of Shrek The Third. Cinderella does use her glass slipper as a weapon. It functions somewhat the same as a boomerang. Also, she possibly suffers from an anxiety disorder called Obsessive-compulsive disorder due to her obsession to cleanliness and tidiness after doing this extremely commonly when she was serving her stepmother and her stepsisters (revealed to be Doris and Mabel). This is a stark contrast to the Shrek 2 video game, in which she is portrayed as an oblivious valley girl. She is voiced by Amy Sedaris and she is based loosely on the fairy-tale character, Cinderella.
When Lord Farquaad is forced to choose his wife so that he could be king, one of the choices was Cinderella herself. She is shown in a painting at #1 and she is depicted as wearing a yellow dress and trying on her glass slipper. However, Farquaad chooses #3 which is Princess Fiona. She is also shown at Shrek and Fiona's wedding fighting with Snow White to catch Fiona's bouquet. In Shrek 2, Cinderella is briefly mentioned when the Fairy Godmother is explaining to Shrek that ogres don't live happily ever after. There is also a picture of her in Fairy Godmother's factory thanking her which can be more closely seen in a "Behind-the-Scenes" guide. Because of this, it could also be possible that Cinderella's fairy godmother is indeed her.
Cinderella appears more prominently in Shrek The Third. However, she receives a design change such as that instead of her old yellow dress, she is now wearing a light blue-silver dress. She becomes friends with Princess Fiona, Queen Lillian, Doris, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty prior to the events of the film. She first appears in Fiona's baby shower. However, Prince Charming interrupts Fiona's baby shower and takes over the throne. She escapes with Fiona, Queen Lillian, Doris, and the other princesses. She is later betrayed by Rapunzel and imprisoned in a dungeon. They manage to escape and they head towards the castle. Snow White tricks the guards: talking trees, by singing a high tone to charm the animals and suddenly command them to attack the trees. Her plan works and they enter the castle's grounds and avoided the knights who are guarding. While trying to get into the castle, Cinderella hurls her glass slipper to a knight, knocking him out cold. Her throwing resembles a fashion to a boomerang. Cinderella, along with the other princesses, Doris and Queen Lillian, arrives just in time to stop Prince Charming from killing Shrek before the entire kingdom. After Charming is defeated, she is seen talking to the other princesses, Doris and Queen Lillian in the background.
Sleeping Beauty is one of Princess Fiona's friends, and is based on the fairy-tale character, Sleeping Beauty (whose real name according to the story is Aurora). She is voiced by Cheri Oteri. Like the character she is based on, she literally sleeps a lot. This implies that she suffers from narcolepsy in which she sleeps during inappropriate times. She actually can avoid knights by falling onto the ground, tripping the knights down. Due to the fact that she does so much sleeping in the film, little is known about her personality, other than she seems to be a fair, nice person who is a little flaky at times (most likely due to her sleep disorder).
In Shrek 2, Sleeping Beauty is shown in a poorly drawn picture in Fiona's diary. It explains that she has a party with all the other princesses. However, Princess Fiona is not allowed to go due to her ogre-appearance charm that takes place every night. She is briefly mentioned when the Fairy Godmother is explaining to Shrek that ogres don't live happily ever after. Later, she comes in the film but receives no dialogue. Sleeping Beauty is seen when a coach-limousine pulls up at the red carpet to the Royal Far Far Away Ball. When the door opens, Sleeping Beauty falls to the ground, still sleeping. In the film, she is wearing a blue dress with a crown.
Sleeping Beauty appears more prominently in Shrek The Third. However, she receives a design change such as that instead of her old blue dress, she is now wearing a white-green dress, and instead of having golden hair, she now has shown that she has light brown hair. She becomes friends with Princess Fiona, Queen Lillian, Doris, Snow White and Cinderella prior to the events of the film. She first appears in Fiona's baby shower. However, Prince Charming interrupts Fiona's baby shower and takes over the throne. She escapes with Fiona, Queen Lillian, Doris, and the other princesses. She is later betrayed by Rapunzel and imprisoned in a dungeon. They manage to escape and they head towards the castle. Snow White tricks the guards: talking trees, by singing a high tone to charm the animals and suddenly command them to attack the trees. Her plan works and they enter the castle's grounds and avoided the knights who are guarding. While trying to get into the castle, Sleeping Beauty (due to her suffering from narcolepsy) yawns and falls onto the ground. This causes the knights to trip over her and fall, unconscious. Sleeping Beauty, along with the other princesses, Doris and Queen Lillian, arrives just in time to stop Prince Charming from killing Shrek before the entire kingdom. After Charming is defeated, she is seen talking to the other princesses, Doris and Queen Lillian in the background.
Merlin is a retired wizard teacher from Artie's high school, Worcestershire in Shrek the Third. Merlin is roughly based on the mythological Merlin, as well as his Disney counterpart from The Sword in the Stone. He is voiced by Eric Idle.
In Shrek 3, after their ship crashes into sharp rocks, Shrek, Donkey, Puss, and Artie get stranded on an island (possibly Lovers' Beach in Far Far Away). They meet Arthur's retired teacher Merlin after Artie tries to separate himself from Shrek. Since Merlin retired due to a nervous breakdown (although he calls it "third-level fatigue"), he seems rather crazy and his magic spells usually go wrong. At one point, when he prepares to teleport Shrek, Donkey, Puss, and Artie to Far Far Away, he cracks his knuckles, only to fire a bolt that destroyed a boulder. In order to help Shrek and Arthur reconcile, he makes them look into a thick cloud of smoke to reveal their thoughts. Shrek sees a baby carriage, but lies and says that he sees a "rainbow pony". Merlin is pleased and moves on to Arthur, who sees a bird and its father. The father bird abandons the chick, leaving him frightened and confused. Merlin then is happy they decided to look into their soul and as he retreats to his hut, Shrek takes this opportunity to show Arthur that they are not so different after all. They catch Merlin eavesdropping on their conversation when he plays the song "That's What Friends Are For" on a phonograph to add to the mood.
When Captain Hook and his cronies ambush the four, he plays his piano and Merlin is beside him playing it too, before being shoved off. After the villains retreat, Artie convinces Merlin to use a spell to teleport them to Far Far Away. But the spell causes Donkey and Puss to switch bodies. After Prince Charming's defeat, Merlin returns, and Puss and Donkey force him to put them back in their own bodies. The spell works, but causes their tails to switch. Merlin tries to tell them, but decides not to (though their tails are inexplicably shown to have returned to normal later).
In the videogame followup of the first Shrek film, there is a different version of Merlin that kidnaps Fiona and serves as the game's antagonist.
Brogan (voiced by Jon Hamm) is an ogre who appears in Shrek Forever After. As the second-in-command leader of the Ogre Resistance.
In Shrek Forever After, he then introduces Shrek into the resistance and he is seen using his nose as their horn. He is seen later in the meeting with Fiona on how to fight against Rumpelstiltskin and the witches. Later, when Pied Piper arrives and uses his flute into ogre, the song "Shake Your Groove Thing" is played and later, he is shown that he cannot stop dancing. Later, he and the other ogres are captured until they fight in the castle and defeat Rumpelstiltskin. The 24 hours passes and the contract is destroyed, sending him and the others to disappear. He is seen in the end credits where he is also a guest in Shrek and Fiona's ogre triplets' birthday. In the deleted scenes of Shrek Forever After, the crew said Brogan was going to be a love interest for Fiona, they later changed their minds.
Cookie (voiced by Craig Robinson) is an ogre who also appears in the 4th film.
In Shrek Forever After, he is the Ogre Resistance's chef and food is his only weapon against the witches and Rumpelstiltskin. He is also shown in the meeting with Fiona and the dinner scene. His signature dish is the chimichanga, which he takes a cartful to the ambush on Rumplestiltskin. He is the only ogre seen enjoying dancing while Pied Piper uses his flute until he and the others are captured. He is seen catapulting his chimichangas at the witches during the final battle. He is seen at the party in the end of the movie.
Gretchen (voiced by Jane Lynch) is a female ogre who appears in the 4th film. She is a member from the Ogre Resistance.
Humpty Alexander Dumpty is an egg and the sidekick of Puss in Boots. He appears in the 2011 film, "Puss in Boots" and is voiced by Zach Galifianakis. Humpty possibly appeared in Shrek's first film in Shrek's swamp. Humpty also appeared in Shrek Superslam as Master Fu. In Shrek 3-D his grave was shown.
Lord Farquaad is the comically short-in-stature, ruthless ruler of the huge castle of Duloc, and the primary antagonist of the first film.
In his pursuit of perfection, Farquaad attempts to rid his kingdom of fairy tale creatures, offering a bounty for their capture and then exiling imprisoned creatures to Shrek's swamp. However, because Farquaad is not of royal stock, he cannot become a king until he marries a princess. He decides that Princess Fiona will be the perfect wife and queen, but she first must be rescued from her tower guarded by a fire-breathing dragon.
Unwilling to perform the feat himself, Farquaad decides to hold a tournament to discover the knight that will rescue Princess Fiona when Donkey and Shrek arrive. Shrek and Donkey defeat the knights and Farquaad decides to send Shrek instead on the quest. Lord Farquaad agrees to move the fairy tale creatures out of Shrek's swamp if Shrek rescues Fiona. Shrek delivers Fiona to Farquaad and Farquaad immediately proposes marriage, unaware that she becomes an ogress at sunset. Shrek disrupts the marriage ceremony, delaying a kiss between Farquaad and Fiona until after sunset. Fiona makes the transition from human to ogre form, upon which Farquaad rejects his new bride, banishing her to the tower and claiming the title of king. He also sentences Shrek to death at that time as well. Before Farquaad finishes his claims of becoming the new king, the dragon, that had been guarding Fiona and has since developed a relationship with Donkey, crashes through the window and eats the monologuing Farquaad, thanks to Shrek, who whistles for her. Moments later Dragon burps and his crown comes out. Farquaad was apparently not well liked in Duloc; when he is eaten by Dragon, the citizens actually laugh and cheer.
He makes another brief appearance in the dragon's stomach singing "Stayin' Alive" during the Shrek in the Swamp Karoke Dance Party. It is presumed that he is dead when he enters as a ghost in the Shrek 4-D ride at Universal Studios and the 30 minute Shrek Special on Nick in which he attempts to murder Shrek and Donkey, and kidnap and kill Fiona so that she can be his ghost queen. Princess Fiona is again rescued when Lord Farquaad is presumably killed by Dragon a second time. He was voiced by John Lithgow.
The Fairy Godmother (voiced by Jennifer Saunders) is a scheming, conniving opportunist, and the primary antagonist of the second film. She seeks to get the best for herself and her son, rather than others. She often resorts to blackmail and trickery through magic to get her way. It is also known that The Fairy Godmother loves food (“someone get me something deep fried and smothered in chocolate”), and during her talk with Harold in the carriage about Shrek it is shown that King Harold ruined her diet so she orders food from Friar's Fat Boy. Her main character theme is bubbles.
When she first appears she is surrounded in bubbles as she is singing to Fiona, also when Shrek uses her card to ask for help, a voice mail message of her appears with her saying 'Is it on? Is it on?' she is surrounded by a bubble again, with the bubble then showing an image of The Fairy Godmother's cottage, after the message ends the bubble then bursts. Finally when The Fairy Godmother dies she bursts into lots of bubbles.
Prince Charming (known as King Charming in the third film while ruling) is the son of the Fairy Godmother, serving as the secondary anatgonist in the second film, as well as the primary antagonist in the third film. He is voiced by Rupert Everett. According to the image of a typical "Prince Charming" his look is somewhere near to "ideal". For example, he has "soft and bouncy hair".
In his first scene in Shrek 2, he travels to the castle where Fiona had been imprisoned prior to the first movie, only to discover that Shrek has already found her and married her, and that the Big Bad Wolf (without any explanation to how the wolf got there in the first place) has taken to sleeping in her tower. His narration in this scene, as well as his conversation with the Wolf, reveal the most important aspects of the plot from the first film.
It is later revealed that Charming is in fact the son of the Fairy Godmother, and that she wants him to marry Fiona so that he can become king (similar to Lord Farquaad's intentions from the first movie). As such, in contrast to his fairytale namesake, this version of Prince Charming plays a more villainous role. He is characterized as a selfish and arrogant mother's boy, and she is his doting parent, as well as vain about his appearance. Later in the movie, he deceives Fiona into believing that he is Shrek, having been turned human by a "Happily Ever After" potion. Nevertheless, his foul attitude shines through the disguise and Fiona realises the truth before the end of the movie. At the end, he is forced into kissing Doris, the ugly bartender (Cinderella's stepsister) who runs The Poisoned Apple. However, it is implied that Charming is dating her in Shrek the Third because he goes by the bar looking for her. He also sings "I'm Too Sexy" by Right Said Fred in Far Far Away Idol, although during the song Shrek and Fiona press a button opening the trap door below him due to his horrible singing.
Rumpelstiltskin is a minor antagonist in the third film and the primary antagonist in the fourth film. Rumpelstiltskin is a short man who makes magical deals (complete with contracts) and had a giant pet goose named Fifi.
In Shrek the Third, he appears wearing facial hair and yellow clothing (though in the fourth film, his face is larger, he has no facial hair and wears different clothing), and Prince Charming (who convinces villains to help him kill Shrek and rule Far Far Away) mistakes his name as "Frumpypigskin", but still helps Charming.
In Shrek Forever After it is revealed that King Harold and Queen Lillian were going to sign their kingdom over to him to break Fiona's curse, but the deal was avoided when they found out Shrek rescued Fiona from the tower, and he wished Shrek was never born. When Rumpelstiltskin sees Shrek regretting the life he has, Rumpelstiltskin makes a deal with Shrek, taking away the day he was born which allowed him to be the ruler of Far Far Away, as in the alternate reality created by his deal with Shrek, the king and queen made the deal with him and then disappeared (as Rumpelstiltskin twisted the deal). While Shrek is trying to reverse the deal with the exit clause (true love's kiss, though in this reality Fiona cannot stand him) before 24 hours are up and he will disappear for good, Rumpelstiltskin has an army of witches to stop Shrek, and hires the Pied Piper to capture him and the other ogres. He succeeds in capturing all but Shrek. When he offers anything in return for the one who brings Shrek to him, Shrek turns himself in, and in exchange has him set the ogres free (though he keeps Fiona as she is a princess by day). Rumpelstiltskin tries to feed Shrek and Fiona to Dragon (who is still evil in this reality) but Puss, Donkey, and the other ogres enter to fight, and with Shrek and Fiona they defeat Rumpelstiltskin and his army of witches, but by this time Shrek's 24 hours were almost up. At the last second, Fiona (who now loves Shrek) kisses the disintegrating Shrek, therefore restoring the original reality, much to Rumpelstiltskin's distraught. Rumpelstiltskin is last seen imprisoned by Shrek, Fiona, and the other ogres during the ending, and Fifi exploding by Fiona's singing, while the Pied Piper is tormenting him.
There is a continuity error in the franchise - not only does Rumplestiltskin's appearance change in the 4th film, but at the end of the 3rd film he is among the fairy tale villains who change their ways at the end of the 3rd film, but for some unknown reason has resorted to his original, vindictive evil self in the 4th film.
In the spinoff Donkey's Christmas Shrektacular, he is shown to still be imprisoned in a cage and receive coal for Christmas. He also appears twice in Shrek's Yule Log, the virtual fireplace, unsuccessfully trying to put out the fireplace and having somehow gotten out of his cage (though Donkey's Christmas Shrektacular shows him to be re-imprisoned). This shows that he will likely remain imprisoned at Shrek's swamp. He can be considered a combination of the previous three Shrek main villains: he is short and rules an empire with an iron fist just like Farquaad in the first film, has held magical powers to help others alter their fates just like the Fairy Godmother in second film, and had his life ruined by Shrek's rescue of Fiona from the castle keep just like Prince Charming in the third film. He is the only Shrek main villain in the series not to be killed. It is ultimately implied that the original way to break Rumpelstilskin's contract was too call out his name correctly, however in Donkey's perogative everybody already knew who Rumpelstilskin actually was.
He is voiced by Conrad Vernon (Shrek the Third) and Walt Dohrn (Shrek Forever After).
Jack and Jill
Captain Hook appeared in the Poison Apple Bar in Shrek 2 where he plays the piano and sings "Little Drop of Poison" and "People Just Ain't No Good". Voiced by Tom Waits in one song and Nick Cave in the other. He later appeared in Shrek The Third as a villain working for Prince Charming, voiced by Ian McShane. When Artie convinces the villains to give up evil, Hook states that he grows daffodils, and they are beautiful and throws his weapon down becoming good. In one of the two soundtracks for Shrek Forever After, Rumpelstiltskin talks with guest Captain Hook and he reveals he has been enjoying his life of being good and growing flowers.
Captain Hook also appears as a contestant in the Shrek 2 "Far Far Away Idol" DVD feature. He begins to sing "Hooked On A Feeling" until Tinkerbell (whom Hook poisons in the classic Peter Pan story) prompts Simon Cowell to remove him from the stage.
Theloniaus (voiced by Christopher Knights) appears in the movie Shrek. He is one of Lord Farquaad's henchmen. Theloniaus shows little signs of intelligence in this film. This is shown when Lord Farquaad is deciding between three princesses, 1, 2 and 3. Theloniaus is heard saying "3-Pick number 3, my lord.". However, he holds up two fingers, thus showing his lack of intelligence. Due to having a black mask over his head, Theloniaus could be Farquaad's executioner as well. He made a cameo in "Shrek Forever After" but only during the credits. However in the past events of Shrek he is said to be a minor protagonist.
Rapunzel is one of Princess Fiona's friends and later become or reveals herself as the secondary antagonist of the 3rd film. She is voiced by Maya Rudolph. Unlike the rest of the princesses, she betrayed the group by siding with Prince Charming and assists in his evil plans. It is revealed in the end of the movie that she is actually bald and she is wearing a long braided wig. While unlikely, this could be a reference to the fairy tale when the witch cuts off her hair. She actually has a sympathetic side. This is evidenced when she reminds Charming to not hurt the princesses and Queen Lillian as he promised. Also, as they are led to their dungeon, she turns back and gave a sorrowful expression on her face. She is snobby, opinionated, vain, and does not seem to get along with the bossy Snow White in particular.
In Shrek The Third, she is first seen during Fiona's baby shower until Prince Charming invades the castle and the princesses, Doris and Queen Lillian escape secretly. Eventually, Rapunzel pretends to find an exit and runs all the way to where Charming really is. The princesses, Doris and the Queen follow but are cornered by Charming's knights. Rapunzel then shows off her love and affection towards the Prince and the ladies are imprisoned in a dungeon. While they are imprisoned, Rapunzel is practising for her role in Prince Charming's play. In the final performance, she sings and acts as a princess on top of a tower (mimicking Princess Fiona, whose situation itself was a mimick of Rapunzel's) but the play was interrupted by all of Shrek's friends and wife. Gingy enters the stage by holding on to her hair as he quickly gets down. He accidentally pulls all of her hair and Rapunzel gasps in horror (when it is revealed that she is actually bald). She later runs away from the stage due to the embarrassment. It is unknown what happens to her after the movie or she was never to be seen or heard of her again.
The Cyclops (voiced by Mark Valley) is the bouncer for the Poison Apple. He appears in Shrek Super Slam and his slam is Eye in the Sky. The Cyclops helps Prince Charming in his attempt to take over Far Far Away in Shrek the Third. It is also seen that he has a daughter with one eye like him. It is shown that he is a family guy, and does not really want to be evil. He apologizes to Shrek when he hits him too hard.
Mabel the Ugly Stepsister
Mabel first appears in Shrek the Third where she assists Prince Charming in his plan to take over Far Far Away. She is Doris's sister. She is depicted to be chubby with green-themed clothes but, like Doris, she is actually a kind-hearted person.
Mabel is first seen when Prince Charming asks her where Doris is at the Poison Apple Bar, she says "She isn't welcome here anymore!" (presumably because Doris now resides in the castle with Shrek and Princess Fiona). It is shown that she has a crush on Prince Charming. She takes Doris' place as the bartender in the Poison Apple. Later, she is seen in the film's climax in which she meets Doris on stage after Prince Charming is killed. Mabel was seen very briefly in Shrek Forever After at the Ogre Triplets's birthday party, where she tells Shrek he forgot the candles for the birthday cake. Voiced by Regis Philbin.
The Evil Trees
Appearing briefly in the second film but more prominently in the third, the two "evil" trees are seen helping Prince Charming. In one scene of the third film, their names are revealed as Ed and Steve. In the same scene, they explain that it's hard to find work since most of the world is against them. It's assumed that they are the trees from The Wizard of Oz.
The Evil Queen
The Evil Queen appears in the 3rd Shrek film, where she assists Prince Charming in taking over Far Far Away. Prince Charming refers to her as the Wicked Witch. When Artie asserts they all can all stop being evil, if they are willing to make a better choice, the Queen voices her desire to open a spa in France. Voiced by Susan Blakeslee.
The Puppet Master
Stromboli the Puppet Master (voiced by Chris Miller) appeared in Shrek the Third where Prince Charming convinces Puppet Master to join his brigade by talking about how Pinocchio went off to find his "real" father and never writes.
Headless Horseman (voiced by Conrad Vernon) appears in the 2nd film making a cameo in the Poisoned Apple. He appeared in the third movie with Prince Charming in his invasion of villains. He seems to be a good friend of Captain Hook. He also reveals that he's "always wanted to play the flute", which, since he has no head, would be difficult at best.
Fifi is Rumpelstiltskin's giant pet goose in Shrek Forever After. She is also his bodyguard and carriage puller and attacks Shrek and Donkey at one point. During the ending credits, Fiona sings a high note causing Fifi to explode, an homage to a scene from the first movie.
In Shrek the Third, some witches are shown as patrons at the Poison Apple Bar when Prince Charming rallies the fairy tale villains into taking over Far Far Away. The witches did an air raid where the Evil Trees dropped from the Witches' Brooms to attack the citizens.
Some Witches are seen as one of Rumpelstitlskin's main assistants in Shrek Forever After, they wore black coats and have long noses and greenish faces. They ride their broomsticks and uses pumpkins as bombs (similar to the Spider-Man villain Green Goblin). They can die by water as what Rumpelstitlskin did on one of them who cries "Oh, what a world! What a world!" just like the Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz. Some of them are also seen dancing modern hip hop moves with the Pied Piper's flute after they ridiculed him. They are defeated at the final face off. While most of them displayed vicious behavior throughout the movie. Once Rumpelstiltskin is captured, they passively surrender and are even shown to be upset for Fiona, once Shrek diappears (as opposed to Rumpel, who was rejoicing that even if he was defeated, he would take Shrek down with him). In the main reality, it seems that Shrek had befriended some of them (or they were reformed villains like the other villains of the Poison Apple and thus reverted to being good again) after the events of the alternate reality, as they attended his swamp party. A witch called Baba is the only one whose name is mentioned.
Monsieur Robin Hood
The French-speaking version of Robin Hood appears in the first Shrek movie. Thinking Shrek is kidnapping Princess Fiona, he tries to save her with the aid of his Merry Men. They are defeated by Princess Fiona, who uses her kung-fu skills. Robin Hood and his Merry Men also appear in Shrek Super Slam as unlockable characters. Robin Hood is portrayed as more of a misunderstanding nuisance than an actual threatening villain as he genuinely believed Shrek was going to harm Fiona. However, he and the Merry Men attend Shrek and Fiona's wedding, proving that there was no malice, just misguided intent on his part. They also appear in the Swamp Karaoke Dance Party in the end of the film, joining with Shrek, Princess Fiona, Donkey, Snow White, Pinocchio, Thelonius, Papa Bear, Cinderella, the Big Bad Wolf, and others for a huge dance (they sing YMCA). Voiced by Vincent Cassel.
Sir Lancelot is one of Arthur's classmates in high school. A very typical "jock-bully" archetype, we see him picking on the unfortunate Artie during his brief appearance in the third Shrek film. Voiced by John Krasinski.
The Black Knight
The Magic Mirror is owned by Lord Farquaad. He presents Lord Farquaad with three princesses that he can marry (from which he chooses Fiona). The mirror also appears in the "I'm a Believer" scene at the end of the movie, as well as the scene in Shrek 2, where Shrek, Donkey, and Puss are being arrested, meaning he may have teamed up with Shrek's posse. The Mirror also appeared very briefly in Shrek Forever After. Voiced by Chris Miller.
The Muffin Man
Jero the Muffin Man is a baker who lives in the kingdom of Far Far Away. He is voiced by Conrad Vernon. He is mentioned briefly in the first Shrek film when Gingy and Lord Farquaad discuss their knowledge of him, speaking in the words of the classic Muffin Man nursery rhyme. He first appears in Shrek 2 when Shrek and Gingy persuade him to bake an enormous gingerbread man named Mongo. The Muffin Man's creation helps the heroes to storm King Harold's castle during the Wedding Ball. In Shrek the Third, the Muffin Man is revealed to be a father figure to Gingy as he calls him "Papa". Like the Nursery Rhyme, he lives on Drury Lane. He appeared in Shrek Forever After in the scene when Rumplestilskin (the movie's main villain) promises anyone's heart's desire if they give him Shrek.
- Mr. Geppetto: Is Pinocchio's father. Mr. Geppetto can be seen, selling Pinocchio to Farquaad's army in the first film. He reappears in Shrek Forever After where Pinocchio tries to pass him off as Shrek to Rumpelstiltskin as the two hardly care for each other in the films.
- Tinkerbell: She was almost traded in by Peter Pan in the first movie. Appears in Shrek 2 when she was dancing with Gingy during the Far Far Away Idol and used as lighting for a mud bath. She used her magic to turn Puss's boots into dancing ones during the Far Far Away Idols. She was also a player in Shrek 2 the video game and helped to rescue Shrek, Donkey, and Puss along with Lil' Red, Big Bad Wolf, and the Gingerbread Man. In the game Shrek Smash and Crash Racing, Tinkerbell makes a cameo in the Potion Factory Exterior Track. She is the purple fairy that flies across the track and if any character hits her, they will spin out.
- The Seven Dwarfs: Appear in the first movie carrying Snow White's coffin. These Seven Dwarves are later seen in Shrek 2 when they give Shrek a ring engraved with "I love you" in flaming letters (for Fiona). This is an allusio tn to the One Ring from J. R. R. Tolkien's fantasy book, The Lord of the Rings, recently popularized by Peter Jackson's film trilogy. In "Shrek the Third", some evil dwarves assist Prince Charming in his plan to take over Far Far Away. Also in "Shrek the Third" a Dwarf is given to Fiona as a wedding present (a babysitter) from Snow White. When Fiona refuses Snow White muses, she has "six more" back home.
- Little Red Riding Hood: Is shown at the beginning of Shrek 2, working for a honeymooner-oriented camping park, offering food for sale. She runs away after seeing Shrek and Fiona as ogres and leaves her basket behind and Shrek and Fiona proceed to eat its contents. She also appears in Shrek 2 the game, where she appears as a professional softball pitcher. Her slam is Basket of Utter Destruction. She has a different appearance in the two productions. She made a cameo in Shrek the Third, where she pick-pocketed a dwarf while cloaking herself in her red hood. She is also seen in Shrek the Third in the Poison Apple Bar, a bar for villains. She also offered to help Prince charming take over Far Far Away (It is unknown why she is considered a villain in that film, but is possibly because she is the adversary of the Big Bad Wolf). Little Red Riding Hood appears as a racer in the game Shrek Smash and Crash Racing. Her name is simply "Red Riding Hood" and her appearance is the same as her appearance in the film Shrek 2. Little Red Riding Hood's kart is the Big Bad Wolf and her personal item is a picnic basket.
- The Three Bears: Appear in the first movie among the fairy tale characters captured by Lord Farquaad's troops and sent to Shrek's swamp. Mama Bear is seen in Lord Farquaad's Bedroom as a bear skin rug, however at the end of the movie, during their big song party it is revealed that Mama bear is alive and well. In Shrek Smash and Crash Racing, Papa Bear is used as a kart for Goldilocks. Papa Bear however is not a playable character. In Shrek Superslam, there is a bear skin rug of a bear (most likely Papa Bear) in one of the secret arenas. The only bear to speak is Baby Bear (voiced by Bobby Block).
- The Little Mermaid: A mermaid resembling Ariel from the Disney film The Little Mermaid makes a cameo appearance during the Accidentally in Love scene in the second movie when Shrek and Fiona are on the beach during their honeymoon. A wave comes in and when it goes back out she is on top of Shrek kissing him and Fiona throws her back into the sea where she is eaten by sharks.
- Hansel and Gretel: Appeared in the second film's royal ball walking in the Red Carpet happy for Fiona's wedding. They also appeared to throw bread in the ground, which puzzles the Joan Rivers-like commentator of the ball. They are also mentioned by the Fairy Godmother while she searches for a fairy tale book about5 ogres living happily ever after.
- Tom Thumb: Is in the second movie walking with Thumbelina on the Red Carpet at Fiona and Shrek's Wedding Ball. They are both ignominiously swept up along with the debris cluttering the Red Carpet and possibly fail to attend the Wedding Ball because of this. Tom Thumb pushes Thumbelina in front of him as they get swept up.
- Thumbelina: Appears in the second movie walking with Tom Thumb on the Red Carpet at Fiona and Shrek's Wedding Ball. They are both ignominiously swept up along with the debris cluttering the Red Carpet.
- Peter Pan: In the first Shrek movie, Peter Pan is seen waiting in line to sell Tinkerbell. His only line in the film is "He can fly!" (delivered when Tinkerbell inadvertently sprinkles fairy dust on Donkey). In the "Shrek the Third" video game, it is implied Captain Hook killed him. Although in the film, he approaches a small boy in Far Far Away stating, "Well well well, if it isn't Peter Pan!", mistaking him for Peter Pan.
- "Wendy": When Captain Hook approaches the small boy in Far Far Away, he also calls his mother and says "Shut it Wendy". It has not been confirmed whether this is really Wendy or if Hook is simply harassing her.
- The Old Lady in the Shoe: Her house was seen when all the fairy tale characters were condemned into Shrek's swamp by Lord Farquaad. Under the shoe was she with her children.
