* A quick example: Shrek arrives just in time at Fiona and Farquaad's wedding, but upon the revelation that Fiona is an ogress, Farquaad orders his men to have her imprisoned and Shrek killed. All seems lost... [[BigDamnHeroes then Dragon bursts in through the church's stain-glass window]], [[JustDesserts and devours Farquaad]].

* The simple fact that Donkey goes back to Shrek's swamp and fights with him about how [[WhatTheHellHero he's pushed everyone away.]] He even gets physical with Shrek as they wrestle with the stick. He even goes so far as to get into Shrek's face. Considering Shrek is a creature whom could likely easily maim or even eat a creature like Donkey, it's suffice to say the latter has some balls.

* A RealLife example: The amount of success the first film received wasn't just at the box-office, but also involved Creator/EddieMurphy being nominated for a [=BAFTA=], and the screenplay winning one (even Creator/RobinWilliams in ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' canít claim that), becoming the first American animated film since ''Disney/PeterPan'' to play in competition at the Cannes Film Festival, and winning the inaugural UsefulNotes/AcademyAward for Best Animated Feature with the screenplay gaining a nomination. All of this happened for a FracturedFairyTale about an ogre and a donkey! This not only made Creator/DreamWorks a powerful player in the animation feature industry, but made it possible for non-Disney studios to also compete in the field.

* Shrek stops Dragon chasing him, Fiona and Donkey out of the castle with a sword and good planning. By leading the collared Dragon through a series of criss-crossing pillars, then stabbing a sword through one of the crosses made by the collar's chains. When Dragon tries to fly after them, the sword gets caught between the two points and acts as an anchor, stopping her.
