Shrek: Owned by Lord Farquaad. 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. Voiced by Chris Miller

Doris the Ugly Stepsister

Doris, is one of Cinderella's Stepsisters, and first appears in Shrek 2. She's seen as an unusually ugly female bartender at the Poison Apple. 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. Voiced by Larry King

Minor characters

Black Knight

The gibberish-speaking Black Knight in black armor and a red cape appears in Shrek Super Slam. He is available as a standard character with his slam being the Seismic Smash.

Captain Hook

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".


The one-eyed Cyclops 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 doesn't really want to be evil. He apologises to Shrek when he hits him too hard.


These creatures from Germanic mythology are seen in 'Shrek 2' when they give Shrek a ring engraved with "I love you" in flaming letters (for Fiona). This is an allusion 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 from Snow White. When Fiona refuses Snow White muses she has "six more" back home.


A fairy that resembles Tinkerbell 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 was almost traded in by Peter Pan in the first movie. 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. An assortment of fairies were seen in the first Shrek movie and the second.


He appeared in Shrek the Third where Prince Charming convinces Stromboli to join his brigade by talking about how Pinocchio went off to find his "real" father and never writes.


In the first movie, Shrek made a reference to the Giant from "Jack and the Beanstalk" when an ogre hunter among others thought that ogres can grind people's bones to make bread.

Headless Horseman

The Headless Horseman originally appeared in the film "Shrek 2". King Harold meets the Headless Horseman at the Poison Apple while he is looking for Doris the Ugly Step Sister. The Headless Horseman can be seen drinking some beer while King Harold is talking to Doris. The Headless Horseman appears in the third Shrek movie where he assists Prince Charming in an attempt to take over Far Far Away. When convinced by Arthur to give up evil, he expresses his desire to play the flute.

Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty, who sat on a wall, has yet to appear in a Shrek movie, (his grave can be seen in Shrek 4-D) but appeared in Shrek Super Slam as an unlockable character. Humpty is the only secret character in this game to have a secret costume; he played Master Fu, which is a spoof of the word, "Kung-Fu". In "Shrek Smash and Crash Racing", his appearance differs from his appearance in other videogames. Humpty Dumpty now wears glasses. Humpty Dumpty's kart is the flying chicken and his special item is a frying pan.

Little Red Riding Hood

Little Red Riding Hood is shown at the beginning of "Shrek 2", working for a honeymooner-oriented camping park, offering food for sale. Shrek and Fiona scare her away by looking at her. She 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 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.

Mabel the Ugly Stepsister

Mabel, one of Cinderella's Stepsisters, appears in Shrek the Third where she assists Prince Charming in his plan to take over Far Far Away. She is Doris's sister and when Prince Charming asks her where Doris is at the Poison Apple Bar, she says "that she isn't welcome 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's voiced by Regis Philbin.

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 karate skills. Robin Hood and his Merry Men also appear in Shrek Super Slam as unlockable characters. 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).


The giant gingerbread man created by the Muffin Man (Is there a pic of him anywhere?) (see below). He is an allusion to many larger-than-life movie characters including:
* The Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man of "Ghostbusters".
* His name is derived from Alex Karras's dim-witted strongman in "Blazing Saddles".
* The scene in which he first appears, knocking down palm trees, is similar to the introduction of the adult Tyrannosaurus Rex in "".
* As he is being made by the Muffin Man, Gingy says "It's ALIVE!!" in a parody of "Frankenstein".
* Mongo also lets out a "Godzilla" roar when his gumdrop button is blown off.
* He tells the Gingerbread Man to "be good" in imitation of "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial". This also a reference to a similar scene in "The Iron Giant". When he sinks into the water in the same way that the Terminator sank into the lava and tells Gingy to "be good", it is similar to a scene from "Terminator II".

At the end of the movie, he sings a section of Livin' la Vida Loca.

He is the background character of the arena "Mongo" in Shrek Super Slam, where he is carrying a giant birthday cake. Mongo also makes a cameo in "Shrek Smash and Crash Racing". He roams in the suburbs of Far Far Away track and if any racers make contact with him, they will spin out.

There once was a real-world gingerbread man of this size, registered in the Guinness Book of Records.

Muffin Man

The Muffin Man was mentioned in the first movie, where Gingy says "she's married to the Muffin Man", indicating that he was at least married once. He appears in the second movie where he creates Mongo to help Shrek enter King Harold's castle during the Wedding Ball. In the third movie, the Muffin Man is revealed to be a father figure to Gingy as he calls him "Papa."

Old Lady in the Shoe

Her house was seen when all the fairy tale characters were condemned into Shrek's swamp by Lord Farquaad.

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 inadvertedly sprinkles fairy dust on Donkey). In Shrek the Third 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!"

Pied Piper

The Pied Piper appeared in the first movie playing his pipe to the mice there. The Pied Piper also makes an appearance in the Downtown of Far Far Away track in the game "Shrek Smash and Crash Racing". He can be seen toward the end of the track playing the flute while mice run across the track to create an obstacle for the racers. He also appeared as a boss in the Shrek 2 video game, in which he has only one hit point and no means of attack at all, but uses numerous rats to attack Shrek. The Pied Piper also appears in the Game Boy Advance game, Shrek Reekin Havoc as a boss in Sweetsville.


Pinocchio's father, he can be seen selling Pinocchio to Lord Farquad's army in the first film.


Rumpelstiltskin appears in Shrek the Third where he assists Prince Charming in his attempt to take over Far Far Away. In one trailer, Prince Charming calls him "frumpypigskin." He is also accused by Artie (unintentionally) of being the one who stood between the villains realizing their own selves and almost gets slaughtered but gets saved (sighing in relief) as Artie explains that 'you' meant every villain himself.

The Seven Dwarves

The dwarves appear in the first movie where they are captured by Lord Farquaad's troops and dumped into Shrek's swamp. They appeared in Shrek's house placing Snow White's glass coffin on the table since the Big Bad Wolf claimed Shrek's bed. One of the dwarves (possibly Grumpy) appeared in Shrek the Third as Fiona's gift from Snow White. He appeared in the end of the film as well, where he shows up at Shrek's doorstop grumpily asking, "Where's the baby?", only for Shrek to shove a baby bottle into his mouth and shut the door.


Thelonious appears in the movie "Shrek". He is one of Lord Farquaad's henchman. Thelonious shows little signs of intelligence in this film. This is shown when Lord Farquaad is deciding between three princesses, 1, 2 and 3. Thelonious is heard saying "3". However, he holds up two fingers, thus showing his lack of intelligence.

Thelonious also appears in the short film "Shrek 4-D". In "Shrek 4-D", Lord Farquaad's ghost had ordered Thelonious to abduct Princess Fiona and bring her to the graveyard so Farquaad can make her queen of the Underworld. At one point in the segment, Thelonious is knocked over the waterall. After Shrek, Donkey, and Princess Fiona are hurled over the waterfall, it is revealed that Thelonious has managed to grab hold of one of the branches. He saves Shrek and his friends from falling until Dragon comes to save them. Thelonious also makes an appearance in the game "Shrek Smash and Crash Racing" and is the last racer that is unlocked. His kart is his black horse that he used in the films and his personal item is a giant axe. In "Shrek Fairytale Freakdown" he is a playable character, whom you must defeat before going on to fight Farquad.

The Three Bears

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. A bear that resembles Mama Bear is seen in Lord Farquaad's Bedroom as a bear skin rug. In "Shrek Smash and Crash Racing", Papa Bear is used as a kart for Goldilocks. Papa Bear however is not a playable character.


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 and possibly fail to attend the Wedding Ball because of this.

Tom Thumb

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.

Wicked Queen

The Wicked Queen appears in the third Shrek movie 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't be evil, the Queen voices her desire to open a spa in France.

Evil Trees

Appearing briefly in the second film but more prominently in the third, the two evil trees are seen helping Prince Charming. They are possibly the talking trees from which Dorothy picks an apple in the movie The Wizard of Oz - the scarecrow defends her against them after they attack her. Or possibly they are the evil ents from The Lord of the Rings books/movies (although there is no mention of evil ents) or the evil trees that are allied with The Witch in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. 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.

The following characters appear in Shrek Super Slam and other Shrek-related video games:


Anthrax is a unicorn-like creature in the Shrek universe. Her slam is Chaos Clouds.


G-Nome is exclusively from the Shrek Universe whose slam is Earth Flytrap. A similar character is in Shrek Smash and Crash.
