Shout Out: Shrek
- Donkey's "That's a nice boulder"◊ is a reference to Sylvester and the Magic Pebble by the same author as Shrek. The "boulder" is donkey who turned himself into one to escape from danger but couldn't turn back when he couldn't reach the pebble. Fortunately his parents find him and wish him back.
- Robin Hood and his musicians could be from any whimsical version of the story, but most likely Robin Hood: Men in Tights. Fiona's subsequent thrashing of them is from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (that sequence may have been added basically at the last minute, something that would have been impossible with hand-drawn animation).
- I believe there's three fairies with the same color scheme as Flora, Fauna, and Merriweather.
- The Kingdom of Duloc is a big reference/take that at Disneyland.
- During "Accidentally in Love":
- Shrek accidentally ends up kissing Ariel before Fiona throws her into the ocean to be eaten by sharks.
- The upside-down kiss between Fiona and Shrek with Shrek's face partially covered by mud (which Fiona wipes away from his mouth).
- Shrek capturing a fairy in a jar could be a reference to The Legend of Zelda.
- The exchange of the ring parodies The Lord of the Rings movies, with Shrek taking the ring out of the fire (though it is hot in this film, whereas in The Fellowship of the Ring it was still cool) and the inscription on the ring. The shot of Fiona reaching up to catch the ring on her finger is identical to a similar shot in The Fellowship of the Ring, when the One Ring falls on Frodo's finger in the Prancing Pony.
- Shrek's "I'll kill that cat!" might be a reference to Dinner for One, in which the same line was spoken with almost the exact same intonation.
- Puss in Boots bursting out of Shrek's shirt recalls the infamous chestburster scene from Alien.
- When leaving for Far Far Away, Donkey sings the theme from Rawhide. Apparently, this was a Throw It In by Eddie Murphy.
- After the messenger and his band show up at Shrek's house, one of the trumpet players begins to play the theme from Hawaii Five-O before the messenger stops him.
- Shrek refers to the messenger and company as "Sgt. Pompous and the Fancy-Pants Club Band", referring to The Beatles album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
- "K.N.I.G.H.T.S" is a reference to the real-life TV series Cops. Gingy also mentions another show called "Wheel of Torture".
- When the Fairy Godmother's factory is flooded with potion, two of the workers are transformed into Lumiere and Cogsworth. A swan is also transformed into a beautiful girl, referencing The Swan Princess.
- Puss carves a P into a tree with his sword the same way Zorro carves a Z into his enemies. This also counts as an Actor Allusion, since Antonio Banderas played both characters.
- Puss mutters "I hate Mondays." during the bar scene.
- King Harold mentions that his war wound is playing up
