My god, the formatting...
* 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. ''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.

* MoralDissonance: A bit. Some of Shrek's everyday actions may be objectionable, but the movies never call him out on it, [[{{Gasshole}} instead]] [[ComedicSociopathy playing it]] [[RuleOfFunny for laughs]]. This might just be a mild case of BlueAndOrangeMorality. To an ogre, Shrek's everyday actions are not objectionable.

* AmbiguouslyGay: Being voiced by the openly gay Rupert Everett doesn't help. There is a huge ParentalBonus in the scene where he talks to his mother about his reluctance to marry Fiona -- apparently, he is not interested in women at all. He has, however, shown revulsion towards the wolf when he sees him in what is supposed to be Fiona's bed, and it is also implied that he has some reciprocation of romantic feelings for Rapunzel.

Hispanic means Spanish and Spain's ex-colonies.
* DashingHispanic: As voiced by Antonio Banderas. Well, Spaniard, but it still applies to this trope.
