* DefeatEqualsFriendship: DefeatMeansFriendship: In ''Shrek 2''.2'', Puss is hired by the king to assassinate Shrek. However, unlike his fairy tale counterpart, he does not try to trick the ogre into changing into a mouse, but instead makes a direct, frontal assault on Shrek, which works up until the feline gags on a hairball, spitting it up. Shrek and Donkey spare his life, and Puss proposes to the ogre he owes a life debt to him, in thanks. Although there is some tension/rivalry between Puss and Donkey (who seems nervous that Puss is taking his place as "annoying talking animal"), the three eventually become close friends and allies.

* 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.[[/note]]
