** FridgeBrilliance at work here. [[spoiler: Ogres are considered by human standards, and probably vice versa for humans to ogres. But Fiona as an Ogress? Smoking hot by Shrek's standards! Subsequent movies also play up the fact that Fiona's much more at home in her skin as an ogress than she ever was as a human (and a princess at that). Being true to one's self is definitely more attractive than pretense.]]

* First it subverts TrueLovesKiss: [[spoiler: Shrek and Fiona finally confess they love each other and kiss. Instead of it freeing Fiona from being an ogre when the sun goes down, it makes her an ogre '''permanently'''.]] Fiona, while not exactly disappointed, is still puzzled because "I'm supposed to be beautiful." Shrek just smiles and says, with full and honest sincerity, "But you ''are'' beautiful." (Now CUE I'M A BELIEVER!!!)
** FridgeBrilliance at work here. [[spoiler: By human standards, Ogres are ugly...and Ogres likewise wouldn't think of a human as all that fetching. Fiona as an Ogress? Smoking hot by Shrek's standards! Subsequent movies also play up the fact that she's also much more at home in her own skin as an ogress than she ever was as a princess, and being true to one's self is definitely more attractive than pretense.]]
*** Realizing that a human woman wouldn't be all that attractive to an ogre makes the fact that Shrek fell in love with Fiona as a human an especially sweet bit of [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Heartwarming]] FridgeBrilliance. Yet another nice, more subtle twist to the BeastAndBeauty tale.

--> It's the look on Shrek's face that counts. As we learn later on, Donkey is probably the first person to NOT treat Shrek like a menace to society.

** Without Donkey coming back and clearing things up, Shrek and Fiona probably would have never seen each other again.
* The scene when Shrek is practicing what he is going to say to Fiona when he admits his feelings to her. It's clear this is something he doesn't have much experience with. Shrek, someone who portrayed himself as the scarer, is now the scaree, tripping over his words. It's actually quite sweet.

*** A little something to drive this home; when my friends and I played a game in which we thought up better endings to fairy tales, ''no one could think up a more appropriate ending for WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}. It was simply that perfect.''

* When Shrek gives all of Farquaad's knights what amounts to a CurbStompBattle, the way the crowd reacts with massive cheers a la a WWE match starting, Shrek playfully acts with it. It's truly heartwarming when you realize that this is probably the first time Shrek has ever gotten a positive reaction out of an established society, even after taking down the people meant to protect it. Cue VictoryPose and LargeHam from Shrek as he tries to milk the moment for what it's worth, at least until Farquaad's knights armed with crossbows ruin the moment.

*** And the point is driven home perfectly with the karaoke short when Shrek serenades with BillyJoel's "Just the Way You Are"

* For the Karaoke Dance Party postscript, the moment when Shrek serenades Fiona with BillyJoel's "Just the Way You Are" is deeply charming with the opening lines like "Don't go changing to try and please me/You've never let me down before..."

-->'''Shrek:''' No! I'm an ogre! You know, "Get your pitchforks!" Doesn't that bother you?
