* AbusiveParents: At least his father was. Closest we ever heard about his family is when he tells Artie that his father tried to eat him once.[[note]]''Shrek the Musical'' tells us that his parents kicked him out when he was ''seven years old'' to fend for himself. Then again, that may be more a case of ValuesDissonance since it seems to be ogre tradition, and they do seem to feel bad about it. However, the musical doesn't seem to be cannon.[[/note]] This is probably the main reason behind Shrek's fear of becoming a parent.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: He is not mentioned at all in ''Shrek Forever After'', even though Fairy Godmother had originally arranged for him to save Fiona instead of Shrek, and the movie takes place primarily in a timeline where Shrek didn't save Fiona. It is simply said that no one came to save her at all.
