* EstablishingCharacterMoment: The movie opens with a panning to a storybook, which opens and tells us a tale about a princess awaiting to break her curse with a true love's first kiss. Shrek comes in, tears the page off and uses it as toilet paper, promptly showing us what the movie will be like. The rest of the opening scene shows his daily routine.

* YouNeedABreathMint: The infamous scene where Shrek roars at Donkey to try and scare him off, only for Donkey to say that his breath is more terrifying. It's even the trope's page quote.

* TheLegendOfChekhov: Everything in the storybook opening turns out to be true, and comes back during the castle sequence when Shrek and Donkey have to find Fiona and rescue her. Shrek, in particular, guesses where in the castle she is thanks to the book (the highest room in the tallest tower), and he's right. [[FridgeLogic Though one has to wonder why Shrek had a book like that in the first place...]]

* LoveAtFirstSight: Played with, with regard to Dragon towards Donkey. As you would expect, [[OhCrap he's terrified when he first sees her]], but when he first realises she's female, she blows him a heart-shaped smoke ring, having known he existed for barely five minutes. The next time we see them both, Donkey is trying to tell Dragon he doesn't want to rush things.

* 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.

* CakeToppers: This film provides the trope image. Fiona looks at her wedding cake with figurines of herself and Farquaad on the top, and she pushes his fugurine down into the cake to more accurately show his height (originally the two figurines were the same height).
