* The scene when Shrek is practicing what he is going to say to Fiona when he admits his feelings to her. It's clear this is something he doesn't have much experience with. Shrek, someone who portrayed himself as the scarer, is now the scar''ee'', [[Adorkable tripping over his words]]. It's actually quite sweet.

** After Shrek and Donkey have their misunderstanding, Donkey still goes back to Shrek's swamp and is willing to reconcile with him saying "That's what friends do! They forgive each other!" Then later after Shrek apologizes for his treatment of Donkey, he says "Hey that's what friends are for, right?" They shake hands and genuinely become best friends.
*** The whole relationship between Shrek and Donkey is heartwarming. At first, Shrek sees Donkey as a nuisance and tries to shove him away. But Donkey liked Shrek and did everything he could to become his friend. His persistence is what cracks through Shrek's tough shell and allows him to accept love in his life.

* Right after Shrek frees Fiona from her room, he made it a point to save Donkey first before escaping. Fiona ask why not leave now, Shrek replies "He has to save his Ass first". Shrek could have just left Donkey there, get back his swamp and finally be alone, not to mention this was before their heart to heart talk. Shrek probably felt indebted to Donkey for joining him the entire journey with him.

* While taking a drink at a river, Donkey sees the now heartbroken dragon crying and walks on over to console her.
** It is double-heartwarming when you realize Donkey probably realized he treated Dragon the way people treated Shrek (when all she did was to behave like what she is).

** It's the look on Shrek's face that counts. As we learn later on, Donkey's probably the first person to NOT treat Shrek like [[HeroWithBadPublicity a menace to society]].

* First it subverts TrueLovesKiss: [[spoiler: Shrek and Fiona finally confess their love for each other and kiss. Instead of it freeing Fiona from being an ogress when the sun goes down, it makes her an ogress '''permanently'''.]] Fiona, while not exactly disappointed, is still puzzled because, as she claims, "I'm supposed to be beautiful." Shrek just smiles and says, with full and honest sincerity, "But you ''are'' beautiful." (Now CUE I'M A BELIEVER!!!)
** FridgeBrilliance at work here. [[spoiler: Ogres are considered ugly by human standards and the same is probably for humans to ogres. But Fiona as an Ogress? Smoking hot by Shrek's standards! Subsequent movies also play up the fact that Fiona's much more at home in her skin as an ogress than she ever was as a human (and a princess at that). Being true to one's self is definitely more attractive than pretense.]]

* In ''Scared Shrekless'' Shrek and Fiona are taking their children out to play pranks on Halloween. When the children see their father, they instantly forget about the candy and go to see him.
* In ''ShrekTheHalls'', Shrek sees his children under the table, playing with each other and the Dronkeys. He goes down to them and calls them "My sweeties". Especially considering how terrified he was of being a father in the previous film.

*** Realizing that a human woman wouldn't be all that attractive to an ogre makes the fact that Shrek fell in love with Fiona while she was still a human an especially sweet bit of [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Heartwarming]] FridgeBrilliance. Yet another nice, more subtle twist to the BeastAndBeauty tale.
