* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Farquaad's "perfect world" of DuLoc means getting rid of all fairytale creatures and banishing them top Shrek's swamp. Sounds like the fairytale creatures are the Jewish population of Third Reich-era Germany, and this makes Farquaad an expy of Hitler. With this mindset, it makes Farquaad all the worse.

* AccidentalTruth: See AltarDiplomacy below. When Shrek has to come up with a reason as to why Fiona can't marry Farquaad when Fiona asks him during the ceremony, Shrek blurts out that Farquaad is only marrying her so he can be king.
* ADogNamedDog: A donkey called Donkey.



* AltarDiplomacy: Prince Farquad wants to marry Fiona purely so he can become king.

* BigNo: Shrek, a couple of times when he's angered by Donkey, such as twice during the "Ogres are like onions" scene.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Shrek. All he weants is to be left alone, is quite moody and callous at times, and occasionally falls into ItsAllAboutMe territory, as Donkey points out during his TheReasonYouSuckSpeech. Despite all that, part of the reason why Shrek is the way he is is because he hates that people judge him before they properly know him, and that he is a good guy inside, as people would find out if they gave him a chance. For example, he allows Donkey to stay with him for one night, agrees to get the fairytale refugees back where they came from (even if only to get them off his own land), and despite how irritating he finds Donkey, he still saves him in the face of danger and eventually properly befriends him.



* MatchCut: Several of them during the "Hallelujah" montage whenever the camera cuts back and forth between Shrek in his swamp and Fiona in Farquaad's castle.



* OutrunTheFireball: In the first movie, Shrek, Donkey, and Fiona use this trope as they reach the bridge leading away from the dragon's castle, and the dragon takes one last shot at them with her fiery breath.

* PairTheSpares: [[spoiler:As well as Shrek and Fiona marrying at the end, Donkey and Dragon get together too, and are shown to have mutant dragon-donkey babies in the sequels.]]

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: If Farquaad had listened to the mirror trying to warn him about what happens to Fiona at night, the rest of the plots in the series wouldn't have happened. See ForWantOfANail.
