Added DiffLines:

* ActionGirl: All of the princesses turn out to be on-par with how much of an action girl Fiona is (and even her older mother). Except for [[spoiler:Rapunzel]].

Added DiffLines:

* AbusiveParents: Both Shrek and Artie had abusive fathers. In Artie's case, his father dumped him at the Worcestershire school the first chance he got and Artie never saw him again. Shrek's father was worse, being an ogre, as he apparently tried to ''eat'' Shrek when he was a baby.
* AdultFear: Shrek panics when told he is to become a father, partly because of how he is scared of ruining his child's life.


Added DiffLines:

* BadBadActing: Charming's acting comes across as this to the people he's performing to.


Added DiffLines:

* TheBechdelTest: The baby shower and escape scenes with Fiona's friends and Queen Lillian ensure this trope is apparent.


Added DiffLines:

* BriefAccentImitation: Artie briefly imitates Shrek's voice ("You're gonna be king!" (''normal voice'') Yeah, right.") shortly after crashing on the beach.
* ButtMonkey: Artie. Even his own father didn't seem to want him.


Added DiffLines:

* DidntSeeThatComing: Shrek said this about, when he was a baby, his father trying to eat him. In hindsight, he says he should have seen it coming because he was bathed in barbecue sauce and put to bed with an apple in his mouth.
* DisappearedDad: As mentioned above, Artie's father essentially cast Artie off by dumping him at the Worcestershire school at the first opportunity and never saw Artie again.

** Also in the beginning with Charming. You can see he's fallen very low since the death of his mother, working as an actor for a dinner theater with no one taking an interest in his performance. Even worse is when they start cheering when an actor dressed as Shrek comes on stage.

* JerkassFacade[=/=]CruelToBeKind: When Charming finally corners Shrek and Arthur, Shrek berates Arthur and calls him an utter loser. Donkey and Puss both point out that Charming would have murdered Arthur had Shrek not made him look so pitiful.
