* In Shrek 2, Lillian brings up the subject of Shrek and Fiona's children and Shrek is so horrified by it that he swallows his spoon. In Shrek the third, he again expresses his fear of fatherhood by saying he is afraid of being a loving father. Based on what Shrek says about his father to Artie, we can guess that Shrek had a very abusive childhood. It isn't uncommon for there to be a cycle of abuse. We never see or hear of Shrek's parents besides that so we can assume either they are dead or Shrek never spoke to them again. That was Shrek's fear, that he would repeat what he endured as a child and abuse his own children and his children would disown him, like he had with his parents.

* In ''Forever After'' it is implied that only one timeline can exist at a time- the original timeline is replaced by the alternate timeline, and then replaced again by the original timeline when Rumple's deal is broken. When this happens all of the alternate timeline characters are "poofed" out of existence as their reality crumbles. They are then replaced by their original counterparts- yet Shrek is the only one who retains any memories of the alternate reality. This means that the original timeline characters and alternate reality characters were seperate beings. [[InferredHolocaust ''And all of the alternate timeline characters' existences were erased completely.'']] Alternate Fiona never got to experience having children with Shrek or living in a tyranny-free world because she disappeared from existence 10 seconds later.

* Also William Fitzooth, Robert's father, was of born Norman and Saxon parentage so it isn't like French would have been unknown to Robin.

\n* In ''Forever After'''s alternate universe, Donkey says that he needs his job pulling the witches' carriage because he doesn't want to go back to Old McDonald. Considering his ragged appearance and the way the witches whip him when they want him to sing different songs, just how bad must his old job have been?

** This may double as Fridge Horror: He is literally sending all of the annoying cartoony animals to live with a sociopathic Ogre that is well known for butchering people. He may have just been hoping Shrek would eat/kill/maim them all!
