Added DiffLines:

* LawOfInverseFertility: It is implied in the second film that Shrek very much does not want children. When Fiona brings up the idea of them starting a family, Shrek again shows his fears of parenthood by explaining to Fiona that babies are a lot of work and all he needs is her. He later learns from Fiona that she is pregnant with his children and he starts to panic.

* PanickyExpectantFather: Shrek finds out from Fiona that he is going to be a father and has a nightmare about being a parent. His fears aren't that his life is going to change but he is afraid that he will be an abusive parent. Given his own experiences with his father, it makes perfect sense why he felt this way. At the end of the film, he learns to accept parenthood and proves to be a good parent.

** To get the gag about the frogs singing "Live and Let Die" at the king's funeral, one needs to a) recognise the theme of a [[Film/LiveAndLetDie 1973 James Bond]] film as being a Music/PaulMcCartney song and b) also be aware of [=McCartney]]'s role in the 1984 animated film ''[[ComicStrip/RupertBear Rupert]] and the Frog Song'' (and associated Frog Chorus single). It's not exactly one for the kids.

* ParentalBonus: The two birds that perch on Snow White's shoulders just before [[spoiler: she sics all the forest animals on the evil trees]]? They're ''woodpeckers''.

* BookEnds: The cardboard tower at Charming's dinner theater gig falls and he goes through the window hole. During his staged (and failed) execution of Shrek, the much larger and heavier prop tower falls and actually crushes him.

** While rehearsing his lines for the scene in his play where he kills Shrek, Charming (who is going to use a real sword to kill Shrek for real) apparently fatally stabs the guy in the Shrek costume.
*** And so he did with the second guy who jumps in after the first was dragged away, without Charming even noticing it.

* FauxActionGirl: The Princess Rampage showcased in the trailer of ''Shrek the Third'' ends with meek surrender at the first sign of non-mook resistance.
** Their StormingTheCastle sequence was certainly WesternAnimation/{{Madagascar}}-penguin-worthy, though.

* HeelFaceTurn: At some point between films Doris the Ugly Sister from ''Shrek 2'' actually turns from a barmaid in a villain's bar to one of Fiona's girlfriends. We don't know how, why or when this happened, just that it's funny because the man in drag is back.

* AmbiguouslyGay: Prince Charming again, as a continuation from the previous movie. However, this is ultimately averted with his romance with Literature/{{Rapunzel}}, making him simply a case of [[CampStraight]].

Added DiffLines:

* BirthDeathJuxtaposition: King Harold dies at the beginning of the movie, which kicks off the main plot. Shortly afterward, just as Shrek is departing on the ship to start his quest, Fiona calls out to him to reveal that she's pregnant, and she gives birth to triplets at the end of the movie.
