* GibberishOfLove: Shrek slips into this when he tells Fiona that Farquaad isn't her true love, and she asks Shrek what he knows about true love. He stumbles over his words and Farquaad realizes Shrek has feelings for Fiona, much to his amusement.


Added DiffLines:

* KickTheDog:
** Farquaad does this to the Gingerbread Man bu taunting him with his own rhyme and his dismembered legs, before crumbling one to powder right in front of him.
** Farquaad does this to Shrek when he realizes Shrek is in love with Fiona, laughing at him and getting the whole congregation to laugh at him too.

** Shrek. When he and Donkey first meet, he is clearly annoyed and irritated by him and wants nothing more than to get rid of him. Of course, that changes after they spend a bit of time together, and then when he rescues Fiona...

Fiona joins them...too. She's not happy that Shrek rescued her, nor that he rescued her for someone else, but she soon starts warming up to him.

** The mill that Shrek and Donkey approach on the hill after the "ogres are like onions" scene is where they stop at with Fiona on the way back, where we find out about Fiona's curse, where Shrek misinterprets Fiona's words and comes to think she hates him, and where Farquaad meets Fiona to bring her back to DuLoc.

* BigShutUp: Donkey has enough of Shrek putting him down and gives him one of these in the middle of a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech.
-->'''Donkey:''' Well, guess what? Now, it's MY turn, so you just shut up and pay attention!



'''Donkey:''' Wow. Only a true friend would be that [[BrutalHonesty cruelly honest]].

'''Donkey:''' -->'''Donkey:''' Wow. Only a true friend would be that [[BrutalHonesty cruelly honest]].



* OhCrap: Shrek has a minor one of these during the tournament scene, upon hearing Farquaad say, "The one who kills the ogre-- (OhCrap) will be named champion! Have at him!" Though, to be honest, it diminishes pretty quickly when he sees the knights aren't going to back down and pulls a LetsGetDangerous.

** Donkey has one when the pixie dust enabling him to fly wears off, before he falls to the ground.

-->'''Donkey:''' (to Shrek) You know, with you, it's always "Me, me, me!" Well, guess what?! Now it's my turn! So you just shut up and pay attention! You are mean to me, you insult me, you don't appreciate anything that I do! You're always pushing me around or pushing me away!\\

Added DiffLines:

* SoWhatDoWeDoNow: Shrek and Donkey each get this when Fiona and Farquaad go back to Duloc to get married. Shrek blows up at Donkey and leaves him, going back to his swamp, which has been cleared out. He gets there but keeps thinking about Fiona and is otherwise at a loss for what to do until Donkey returns later in the day. Donkey, on the other hand, is left to just WalkTheEarth, having nothing else to do and no one to go back to... until he sees Dragon on the same riverbank, [[CryCute crying because she misses him]].

* BlatantLies: Shrek heads away from the mill after Fiona goes inside, and when Donkey asks where he's going, he replies., "To get... more firewood." Donkey knows he's lying because there's still firewood next to the fire.



* BlueIsHeroic: Inverted with Farquaad. His standard is blue, as seen during the tournament sequence, but he is a {{Jerkass}} and the film's BigBad.

* BrutalHonesty: Donkey references the trope soon after he and Shrek first meet, after Shrek says it's no wonder he doesn't have any friends. Donkey says [[InsultBackfire only a true friend would be that cruelly honest]].



* ChekhovsGun: [[spoiler:Fiona's enchantment. Described first by Fiona when she's first seen as an ogress in the mill, then comes back again during the wedding when it's revealed to Shrek and Farquaad. Farquaad's reaction leads almost directly to his own death.]]

to:

* ChekhovsGun: ChairmanOfTheBrawl: At one point during the fight against Farquaad's knights, an old woman yells, "Give him the chair!" Shrek promptly uses a folding chair to take out one of the knights.

** Donkey mentioning to Shrek early on that only a true friend would use BrutalHonesty towards him. By the end of the film, and after a bit of arguing, they make up and reaffirm a friendship.



* IJustWantToBeFree: Donkey is implied to be this at the start of the film, when he breaks free from the guards and runs for it, and in his later line to Shrek: "Man, it's good to be free".



* InsultBackfire:
-->'''Shrek:''' STOP SINGING! Well, it's no wonder you don't have any friends!
'''Donkey:''' Wow. Only a true friend would be that [[BrutalHonesty cruelly honest]].

*** Even less subtle in the French dub of the movie, as "queue" (literally, "tail") is a very common French euphemism for... Well, ''you know what''.
