    Lord Farquaad 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lord_farquaad.png
Voiced by: John Lithgow

Lord Farquaad is the comically short, ruthless ruler of the huge castle of Duloc and the Big Bad of the first film.


  • A Nazi by Any Other Name: Duloc (and the surrounding territories it seems to occupy) was designed to be a Muggle ethnostate, taking anyone or anything magical (except for the Magic Mirror which he uses for ego-boosting) and having them forcibly relocated away into Shrek's swamp.
    "I'm not the monster here, you are. You and the rest of that fairy tale trash poisoning my perfect world."
  • Adaptation Species Change: Is half dwarf in the musical.
  • Ambition Is Evil: Why does he want to marry Fiona? So he can become royalty by marriage and proclaim himself a king.
  • And There Was Much Rejoicing: Everyone attending his wedding laughs and cheers when Dragon smashes through the window and eats him alive.
  • Aristocrats Are Evil: He banished all fairy tale creatures in Duloc to a swamp and is heavily implied to be an authoritarian.
  • Asshole Victim: Dragon devours him during the wedding as he tries to claim the title of King of Duloc for himself. None of Duloc's citizens bat an eye after he is no more.
  • Bad Boss: Him wanting Fiona for himself? He'll just toss scores of knights at the dragon guarding her. Some of them may die, but that is a risk he's willing to take.
  • Basement-Dweller: Keeps complaining in the musical about his father abandoning him but his dad says he threw him out because he was 28 and living in the basement.
  • Big Bad: He is the direct instigator of all story conflicts through sending fairy-tale creatures to the swamp, sending Shrek out to bring back Fiona with the deal of getting the creatures out of his swamp, and then trying to forcibly marry Fiona after she falls for Shrek.
  • Boomerang Bigot: In Shrek: The Musical, it was revealed that his father was Grumpy of the Seven Dwarves. Considering dwarves are a type of fairy tale creature that was moved to Shrek's swamp, it is pretty clear that Farquaad isn't proud of this fact and is just as racist to his fellow dwarves as he is to every other magical creature.
  • Canon Foreigner: He was created just for the movie.
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: Inflicts it on Gingy.
  • Compensating for Something: Shrek suspects this when he sees his huge castle. Though considering he hadn't yet seen him, it's implied he believes it to be compensation for something other than his height...
  • Deadpan Snarker: Has his moments, especially towards Shrek.
    Farquaad: [upon first seeing Shrek] What is that?! It's hideous!
    Shrek: Ah, that's not very nice. It's just a donkey. [Donkey is incredulous]
    Farquaad: Indeed.
  • Depraved Dwarf: He's very short and a terrible man. Taken further in the musical where he literally is half-dwarf.
  • Dirty Coward: This is the clear reason why he wouldn’t personally rescue Fiona from the dragon guarded castle and tries to get someone else to do it for him.
  • Eaten Alive: Farquaad gets what he deserves at the wedding and gets eaten by Dragon. Dragon burps out his crown a few seconds later.
  • Egopolis: Duloc is one for him.
  • Evil Brit: He speaks with a vaguely English accent, in contrast to Shrek's Scottish accent.
  • Evil Overlord: Though comparatively minor (ha!) in the grand scheme of things compared to the villains of the next three movies, he still fits the archetype in the ways that truly matter.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: John Lithgow's voice is pretty deep, even though Lord Farquaad is rather short.
  • Expy: Though not specifically stated, he bears a strong resemblance to former Disney CEO Michael Eisner, Katzenberg's former boss who passed him over for a job as president of the Walt Disney company, leading to Katzenberg's resignation and the formation of Dreamworks.
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: Being Eaten Alive is a bit extreme.
  • Fantastic Racism: He hates all fairy tale creatures, including human ones such as witches and the Pied Piper. For him, the perfect world is one with only ordinary humans.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Presents himself as polite and cordial, if smug. But he's an authoritative, ruthless, sadistic, and selfish ruler who wants to cleanse his "perfect world" of all fairy tale creatures.
    Farquaad: (to Fiona, after she states she was saying goodbye to Shrek) That is so precious. You don't need to waste good manners on the ogre! (chuckling, then glaring at Shrek) It's not like it has feelings.
  • Feudal Overlord: One who wants to climb the social ladder and become a king.
  • For the Evulz: While his torture of Gingy is for purposes of interrogation, he takes altogether too much pleasure in it to say it's just a means to an end.
  • For Want of a Nail: Farquaad's desire to have Fiona as his queen causes him to silence the magic mirror when he tries to warn him about Fiona's curse. This sets off the plot not just of this film but every subsequent film in the franchise and foils the plans of every other villain.
  • Glorious Leader: Pretends to care about his subjects when in reality he only wants the princess so he can be a king. Needless to say, the people of Duloc do not mourn his death.
  • Gold Digger: He only wanted Fiona's title. He instantly turns on her the moment he discovers her secret.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: In the musical, he's half-human, half-dwarf.
  • Hate Sink: While Farquaad has some amusing qualities, it doesn't exempt the fact that he's still a despicable human being. He's a bigot who goes out of his way to exile fairy tale characters for what they are, he has a spiteful and haughty ego, cowardly tries to exploit his troops to rescue Fiona from the fiery castle (which undoubtedly would've resulted in most if not all of them dying) and takes credit for their work before they even go, tries to exploit Fiona for the title he'd get from marrying her (and then cruelly tries to separate her from Shrek and imprison her for life after he discovers her ogress form), doesn’t thank Shrek and Donkey for the rescue and it's implied that he had an innocent mother (one of the three bears) killed just to make her hide into a throwrug. When he meets his death at the maw of the dragon, he gets absolutely no sympathy from the audience... even in-universe at his own wedding.
  • Height Angst: Is much shorter than other characters in his realm, for which he takes ridiculous measures to compensate.
  • Hypocrite: Despite his self-professed hatred for fairytale creatures, Farquaad seemingly has no problems with keeping the Magic Mirror in his castle and deferring to him for advice.
  • It's All About Me: Everything he does is about satisfying his own whims and furthering his own ambitions.
  • I Gave My Word: While he's an evil creep, he's at least a man of his word. As soon as Shrek completes the quest to bring Fiona to Duloc, Farquaad immediately gives Shrek the deed to his swamp back, and has his men clear out the fairy tale creatures for him, just as promised. Farquaad would have been quite happy to leave Shrek alone to his own devices, because he got what he wanted.
  • Jerkass: As vile of a person as he is, he at least treats Fiona well when he meets her, even agreeing to wed on the same day they met at her request—but of course, this is only because it'll make him king, and he only has a lustful crush on her instead of genuine love. Once he got wed to Fiona and found out about her ogress form, he immediately drops the charade, calls her hideous (and an "It" as well), sics his guards on her and holds a dagger to her throat, making his intentions to imprison her clear. Even if Fiona wasn’t cursed, there’s no guarantee he would’ve treated her right.
    And as for you, my "wife", I'll have you locked back in that tower for the rest of your days!
  • Just Desserts: Dragon devours him after he orders Shrek and Fiona to be imprisoned.
  • Karmic Death: Finally gets what he deserves when he is eaten by the dragon.
  • Kick the Dog:
    • Mocking Gingy's inability to run anymore and then crushing his left leg right in front of him while making racist remarks at him and the other fairy tale characters.
    • When Shrek brings Fiona as promised, he doesn’t thank Shrek and tells him to get lost.
    • When he realizes Shrek is in love with Fiona, he not only laughs at him in disbelief, but gets the entire church to laugh at Shrek along with him.
    • And the final cherry on the sundae? As soon as he finds out Fiona is an ogress, he calls her an "It" and orders her imprisoned back in the tower for the rest of her life while Shrek, her real true love, will be tortured to death.
  • Large Ham: It more than compensates!
  • Laughably Evil: Despite being a Hate Sink, he still provides a few of the film's many humorous moments.
  • Meaningful Name: His name sounds an awful lot like what the "F" in G.I.F.T stands for. Word of God confirms this as intentional, saying it was the closest they could get.
  • Missing Mom: His mother, Princess Pea, while sleeping, fell 25 mattresses high to her death, meaning that Grumpy raised Farquaad alone.
  • Mister Big: About three feet tall and the evil head of a racist kingdom.
  • Named by the Adaptation: The musical gives his first name as Maximus. Which is ironic, as the meanings of Maximus are "largest" and "greatest", both of which he certainly isn't, unless, of course, it instead refers to how much of an "F" he is...
  • The Napoleon: Farquaad is so short that some posters have Fiona tower over him even when she's sitting and he's standing.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Quite by accident he screws up the plans of all three other villains from the other films.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Believed to be a parody of Michael Eisner, due to DreamWorks founder Jeffrey Katzenberg's well-known disgust for the former Disney CEO.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: The most violent thing he does in the movie is grab Fiona and hold a knife to her towards the end, which leads directly to his death.
  • Not-So-Well-Intentioned Extremist: When he wants to justify his actions, he frames what he does as trying to make his realm a "perfect world", but it's clear that he just wants power and for his dominion to conform to his standards.
  • Parental Abandonment: Claims this in the musical, but was actually thrown out for being a Basement-Dweller.
  • The Perfectionist: He was obsessed with making Duloc perfect. This is why he expelled all the fairy tale creatures as he viewed them as ruining his perfect image. He intended to marry Princess Fiona, viewing her as perfect, to officially have the title of king and make Duloc a kingdom.
  • Pet the Dog: While he had some Jerk with a Heart of Jerk moments, he was willing to give Shrek his swamp if he rescues Princess Fiona in return and keeps his word once he does with no strings attached.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: Despises fairy tale creatures and has them all deported to Shrek's swamp.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: Shrek may have entered into the tournament at the last minute, but Farquaad clearly sees a way to get what he wants through Shrek once he wins. After Shrek brings Fiona to Duloc as promised, Farquaad keeps his word and gives Shrek the deed to his swamp while clearing out all the fairy tale creatures, just as promised. In fact, Farquaad would have been perfectly content to leave Shrek alone after that, because he had no further reason to antagonize Shrek.
  • Punny Name: An obvious play on "Fuckwad", which suits his vile personality. Also counts as a Meaningful Name.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: His outfit is mostly red and black (with some gold) and as the rest of this page can tell you, he is not a good man.
  • Related in the Adaptation: In the musical, his parents are Princess Pea and Grumpy.
  • Smug Snake: Though he has pretensions towards being a great king, it's blatantly obvious he's a dimwitted, childish, self-centered prat who commands no respect from anyone.
  • Spanner in the Works:
    • If he hadn't decided to pursue Princess Fiona and sent Shrek after her, the Fairy Godmother's deal would have gone through without a hitch.
    • Hell, he manages to be this to all three of the other movies' villains: he screwed up Prince Charming the same way he did the Fairy Godmother, and Rumpelstiltskin was about to successfully convince Fiona's parents to sign a contract to save her and get their kingdom, but they then get the news that Shrek had rescued Fiona.
  • Starter Villain: Serves as this for the Shrek series, but is probably the most impactful of them all as well as seen above.
  • Swallowed Whole: He is swallowed whole by Dragon, and if the karaoke dance party segment is to be believed, he stayed alive in her stomach for some time before eventually being digested by her before the events of the sequel.
  • Teeny Weenie: It's a Running Gag that Donkey and Shrek think he has this, but it's kept subtle enough that you could mistake it for cracks about his height. That said, it's at least large enough to make a noticeable bulge against his bedsheets...
    Shrek: (Seeing Lord Farquaad's large castle) Do you think he's Compensating for Something?
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: Tiny guy to Fiona's huge girl, before she marries Shrek.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Farquaad from the first movie was still as cruel as ever, but he also was willing to negotiate with Shrek to get his swamp back and even clears it out as per their agreement. In Shrek 4-D, he doesn't seem to show any similar redeeming qualities whatsoever. He also wasn't quite as malicious/capable of murder as he was in the attraction.
  • Ugly Hero, Good-Looking Villain: Lord Farquaad is rather handsome, with stylish black hair, a deep voice, and a square chin. Shrek, on the other hand, is bald, fat, and has ears like little snail's eye-stalks.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: When Shrek brings Fiona, Farquaad doesn’t thank Shrek or Donkey and completely takes credit for the rescue, even telling Fiona she shouldn’t say goodbye to Shrek. Downplayed in that he actually does fulfill his end of the bargain by giving Shrek the deed to his swamp and relocating the "sanctuary".
  • Utopia Justifies the Means: It's a "utopia" only for him, though.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Has one when Shrek storms his wedding and Fiona reveals her nature as an ogress. He orders his knights to seize them both and starts shouting for order and ranting about how he's king. And then he spends his final moments screaming in fear as Dragon eats him alive.
  • Villainous Crush: Has a very creepy one on Fiona... until he discovers her secret.
  • Villains Never Lie: The one and only redeeming trait he has to his name is actually giving Shrek his swamp back as promised. It doesn’t make him less ungrateful, though.
    Farquaad: Very well, ogre. The deed to your swamp, cleared out, as agreed. Take it and go, Before I Change My Mind.
  • We Have Reserves: He views his knights as expendable and ready to sacrifice them to rescue Princess Fiona.
    "Some of you will die, but that’s a sacrifice I am willing to make."
  • Xanatos Gambit: When Shrek defeats the knights he gathered for The Tourney, he promises to give him ownership of the swamp in which he lives and put the captured fairy tale creatures somewhere else... if he comes back to Duloc with Princess Fiona. He can claim victory whether Shrek succeeds or fails: if Shrek succeeds, he has Fiona and only has to give up a bit of swampland; if Shrek fails, he'll have one less nuisance to deal with and can always send someone else to do the job.
  • Xanatos Speed Chess: His initial plan is to hold a tournament to determine who the first knight he'll send for Fiona will be. When Shrek shows up, he decides to name the knight who can kill Shrek his champion and send him to go and save Fiona. When Shrek beats them all, he simply declares Shrek the champion and cuts a deal with him.
  • You Are What You Hate: The musical reveals that he's half-dwarf, meaning that he's one of the fairytale weirdos he's trying to ban from Duloc.

    Thelonious 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/theloniustransparent.png

Lord Farquaad's right-hand man, torturer and executioner.


  • An Ax To Grind: His playable appearances in Shrek Fairy Tale Freakdown and Shrek Smash N'Crash Racing have him attack with large stone axes.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: After 4D, he is neither seen nor mentioned again aside from a few video game appearances.
  • The Ditz: Shows signs of this. He told Lord Farquaad to pick number three: Princess Fiona... while holding up two fingers.
  • The Dragon: To Farquaad.
  • Dumb Muscle: He doesn't have much in the way of smarts, but he's strong enough to smash a mirror effortlessly.
  • The Faceless: His face, or any part of his body, is never seen due to his long uniform.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Hinted at after Shrek confesses his love to Fiona, at which point he instructs the castle audience to "awww" and is later shown clapping at their wedding.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Both the original movie and 4D indicate he only works for Farquaad out of obligation.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Thelonious doesn't do much in the first movie and vanishes afterwards, but he was the one who convinced Lord Farquaad to pick Fiona as his bride. Had he not been around, Farquaad might have chosen Snow White or Cinderella instead, which in turn would have resulted in Rumpelstiltskin's deal with Harold and Lillian going ahead as planned and allowing Rumpel to reign over Far Far Away.
  • Too Dumb to Live: In 4D, he sets Fiona's raft adrift in order to kill her on Farquaad's orders... but forgets to step off it first.
  • Torture Technician: He's shown torturing the Gingerbread Man by dunking him in milk.
  • Villainous Rescue: While "Villainous" may be too strong a word, he's a Punch-Clock Villain who momentarily rescues the heroes in 4D when he grabs onto them while they're falling.

    Monsieur Hood 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/char_38352.jpg
Voiced by: Vincent Cassel

"Monsieur Robin Hood" is a French-accented version of Robin Hood who appears in the first Shrek film. Believing Shrek to be kidnapping Princess Fiona, he tries to save her with the aid of his Merry Men. They are defeated by Princess Fiona, who uses her kung-fu skills. Hood is portrayed as more of a misunderstanding nuisance than a threatening villain, as he genuinely believed that Shrek was going to harm Fiona. He and the Merry Men later attend Shrek and Fiona's wedding, proving that there was no malice.


  • Abhorrent Admirer: Fiona is clearly shown feeling a mixture of disgust and annoyance towards him kissing her arm and his attempt to "rescue" her.
  • Adaptational Nationality: Unlike just about every other version of Robin Hood, he's French.
  • Adaptational Villainy: Downplayed. He isn't actually evil, but was willing to kill Shrek, though it was because he thought the ogre was going to harm Fiona. He's also more of a jerk than most incarnations of Robin Hood.
  • Casanova Wannabe: He swoops down and gets Fiona to a tree during the song called, "Hey, Princess."
  • Chivalrous Pervert: Subverted. "I like a little spice on a saucy little maid".
  • French Jerk: Not only is he more of a jerk in this adaptation, he also appears to be of French descent.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Implied. Monsieur Hood appears at Shrek and Fiona's wedding, which indicates he now sees Shrek as a friend. It's possible he honestly thought Fiona was in danger, only to later realize that he was wrong.
  • Just Like Robin Hood: Though he admits to keeping a percentage of the take for himself and his Merry Men.
  • Kiss Up the Arm: He kisses up Fiona's arm, disgusting and annoying her.
  • Nice Hat: His trademark green hat.
  • Unwanted Rescue: He tries to rescue Fiona from Shrek despite her annoyed objections.

    Witch who cursed Fiona 
The witch who cursed Fiona to turn into an ogre at night before the events of the first movie.
  • Karma Houdini: As far as we know, she faced no consequences for cursing Fiona.
  • No Name Given: Her name is never given.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: She is only mentioned sporadically in the first movie, but she was the one who gave Fiona her ogre curse, in turn necessitating her being locked away in a tower and inadvertently setting the plot for the entire series in motion.
  • Wicked Witch: Considering she cursed Fiona to turn into an ogre at night, it's safe to say she's not a very friendly witch.

    Fairy Godmother 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pqpss2ql_400x400.png
Voiced by: Jennifer Saunders; Claire Guyot (French dub)
"Remember, happiness is just a teardrop away..."

The Fairy Godmother is a scheming, conniving opportunist, loosely based on the fairy-tale Cinderella's "Fairy Godmother" and the fortune teller from the Shrek! book by William Steig. She seeks to get the best for herself and her son Prince Charming, rather than others. She often resorts to blackmail and trickery through magic to get her way. She acts as the Big Bad of Shrek 2.


  • Adaptational Heroism:
    • When Shrek 2 was new, there was an online flash game on the official website that had her as a good guy. Your goal was to find all of the ingredients for the potion to turn Donkey into a horse. Possibly done as a way to hide her true role as the movie's Big Bad.
    • In Shrek the Musical, she's just another one of the well-meaning and displaced Fairy Tale Creatures.
  • Adaptational Ugliness: The console games make her a frumpy, wrinkled old hag.
  • Adaptational Villainy: Usually when you think "Fairy Godmother", the image is that she's a kind and loving being, who doesn't judge anyone based on appearance. However, this Fairy Godmother is the opposite of that traditional outlook in every way.
  • Age Lift: She appears a good deal older in the console games.
  • Arranged Marriage:
    • She and King Harold arranged this for Fiona and Charming in exchange for turning Harold into a human and undoing her ogre curse.
    • Implied to have done the same with Harold and Lillian.
  • Bad Boss: She is shown to be downright abusive towards her employees, not even giving them a dental plan.
  • Batman Gambit: When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. When Shrek steals her happily ever after potion to make himself a handsome human in an attempt to be a better suited husband for Fiona, she decides to take advantage of this and pass Charming off as the transformed Shrek to get him and Fiona together.
  • Beauty Equals Goodness: A firm believer of this. She believes only beautiful people can get happy endings, whereas ugly people don't even deserve to get happy endings.
  • Blackmail: How she keeps Harold under her thumb. Until the ending that is...
  • Big Bad: Of the second movie.
  • Big Beautiful Woman: Is on the heavy side, but in the best possible way.
  • Big Eater: She enjoys eating junk food. Her first scene with King Harold involves her stopping at a fast food restaurant to take out a combo meal as a way of relieving stress. Later, after seeing the mess her workshop was left in, she orders one of her workers to bring her a chocolate themed dessert.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Comes off as sweet and kind during her first appearance, but is later revealed to be quite nasty.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: She's not ashamed to admit to the king that she uses tricks up her sleeve to manipulate people's feelings and make them fall in love, as she plans to do with Prince Charming and Fiona.
  • The Chessmaster: Her "Happily Ever Afters" are actually her way of currying favor with the nobility, and she spends most of the film making use of those favors to manipulate her son into the path of the throne.
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: Subverted only to be played straight later on: When she first appears to Harold, she implies that she is going to torture him when shouting at him for Fiona marrying Shrek. However, it immediately shows that the thing she was gonna do that she didn't want to if he didn't tell her was breaking her diet (apparently, she overindulges on junk food when irritated). Played straight, however, when she threatens Harold with what is heavily implied to be turning him back into a frog if he didn't spike Fiona's tea with a love potion. When he doesn't, she really does turn him back into a frog which probably contributes to his death in the next movie. So his fears were completely founded.
  • Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: Lord Farquaad was widely hated even by his own citizens and fairly normal compared to the various fairy tale creatures he was exiling. The Fairy Godmother is herself a fairy tale creature, with the magical powers that come with it, and is initially well-loved by the populace. Also, while Farquaad was basically an Upper-Class Twit whose only real strengths were his wealth and political influence, the Fairy Godmother is genuinely manipulative and clever, and quite possibly the most powerful character in the series.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: She's a conniving businesswoman who is only out to use others to benefit herself and her son Prince Charming.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: She has no qualms about using those around her to get her own way, including her supposedly beloved son. She does not understand why Harold even cares if Fiona actually loves her son and threatens him to give Fiona a love potion, much to his horror.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: The only one the Fairy Godmother loves truly is her son, whom she dotes on, and wants to make king by marrying him to Fiona. At the same time though, she wants power for herself and uses her son as a way to get it.
  • Evil Sorceress: She has access to powerful magic.
  • Fairy Devilmother: While the Fairy Godmother lives up to her title, she also acts as this in her methods, threatening to undo Happy Endings for favors.
  • Fantastic Racism: An interesting example, her prejudice seems to be against people's level of physical attractiveness — sort of an extreme form of Beauty Equals Goodness. In her eyes, only beautiful people (or people who have been made beautiful) get happy endings. If they're ugly, then not only do they not get happy endings — but in her eyes, they don't even deserve happy endings.
    • It's possible she also looks down on humans. As shown when she yells at Harold after finding out their deal didn't go as planned, and threatened Harold just for merely pointing out her son was too late to save Fiona.
  • The Fair Folk: She is a fairy and presents herself as the modern benevolent version, but she's as petty and cruel as any folkloric fairy.
  • Faux Affably Evil: She pretends to gently and kindly convince Shrek to "stop living in a fairytale," but once she's seen for what she really is, she's ruthless, vengeful, evil, cruel, selfish and will stop at nothing to remove those who stand in her way.
  • Genre Blind: For some insane reason she thought it was a good idea to sing an epic hero ballad in the climax of the final act.
  • God Save Us from the Queen!: She gets her dream of being Queen of Far Far Away in Rumplestilskin’s AU in the Shrek Forever After video game, albeit only for a week.
  • Gold Digger: Wishes for her son to marry Fiona so that she may become all-powerful as queen mother and has no regard for Fiona herself, nor anyone else really including her (supposedly) beloved son.
  • Graceful Loser: She takes her defeat in the video game adaptation (the console versions at least) somewhat well ("Well, what do you know? I can be beaten.")
  • Hoist by Her Own Petard: She gets hit by her own magic, which turns her into bubbles, sparkles... and most tellingly... a shower of tears
  • Ironic Nursery Tune: When she first sees Fiona, she thought that Prince Charming’s kiss didn’t work to keep her human, so she sings the “Fairy Godmother Song” to manipulate her into staying with him.
  • It's All About Me: In the end everything she does is for her own sake, her son is nothing more than just another pawn in her plans as demonstrated by her lack of care towards Fiona headbutting him due to her anger over Harold not giving Fiona the Love Potion.
  • Jerkass: The Fairy Godmother in this version isn't like her classic benevolent counterpart who uses her magic for the right reasons.
  • Light Is Not Good: Despite her name, appearance and White Magic, she is not a hero.
  • Madame Fortune: Her name is Dama Fortuna and she is based on a fortune teller.
  • Manipulative Bitch: She uses any and every underhanded trick, some that make her appear more benevolent and kinder than she really is.
  • Mother Makes You King: Intended to have her son rescue and marry Fiona to put him on the throne and reign as queen mother. This doesn't go according to plan as Fiona fell in love with Shrek, thus the Fairy Godmother attempts to get rid of him, either by blackmailing Harold into getting rid of Shrek or by using Shrek's own feelings to manipulate him into thinking Fiona doesn't really want to be with him. Unfortunately for her, her plans there fail as well.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Is very buxom, shows off her cleavage, and acts and moves quite seductively. During the climax, she changes into a red, sparkly dress that highlights her curves and features a leg slit.
  • No Body Left Behind: After getting hit with her own magic, she dissipates into bubbles and water, leaving only her wand and her shattered glasses on the floor.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: "Ogres don't live happily ever after!" Also, her characterization of the cross-dressing Big Bad Wolf as "gender-confused".
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: She has no qualms about resorting to trickery and extortion to get what she wants; in this case, the crown of Far Far Away. When Fiona didn't fall in love with Charming on her own, she decided to drug her with a potion so that she would marry Charming. This is what finally crosses the line for Harold and gives him the courage to stand up to her.
  • Silver Vixen: She is middle-aged, has gray hair and obvious wrinkles. Despite that, she is rather attractive and flaunts it like crazy during the "Holding Out for a Hero" sequence.
  • Sir Not-Appearing-in-This-Trailer: She doesn't appear in the first trailer for Shrek 2, but appears in other promotional material for the film.
  • Smug Snake: Though arguably the most competent one in the series.
  • The Sociopath: Sees Fiona as nothing more than a means to power and has no concern for her feelings nor forcing her to fall in love with Charming. One popular theory was that she was the witch who cast the original spell on Fiona.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Until the climax, no one is aware of the Fairy Godmother's real personality.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Though it's short-lived, her final act to try and blast Fiona and Shrek shows all pretense of goodness and loving are off the table, even with the entire kingdom watching.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are!: A villainous example in Shrek the Third and also a posthumous one.

    Prince Charming 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prince_charming_closeup.jpg
Voiced by: Rupert Everett, James Arnold Taylor (games), Keith Ferguson (Shreks Carnival Craze), Sean Bishop (Scared Shrekless), Unshō Ishizuka (Japanese dub)
"Where is he, Mum? I shall rend his head from his shoulders — I will smite him where he stands — HE WILL RUE THE VERY DAY HE STOLE MY KINGDOM FROM ME!"

Prince Charming is the son of the Fairy Godmother. He is very handsome, and was supposed to rescue Princess Fiona from her dragon-guarded tower. He starts off as the secondary antagonist in Shrek 2 and becomes the Big Bad of Shrek the Third.


  • Adaptational Villainy: This version isn't really very "charming" at all. Well, in terms of personality anyway.
  • Altar Diplomacy: Intended to marry Fiona solely so he could become king of Far Far Away and had no regard for her feelings.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Not only does he come off as rather effeminate, it's implied he only wants to marry Fiona so he can become king of Far Far Away. Being voiced by the openly gay Rupert Everett doesn't help. There is a huge Parental Bonus in the scene where he talks to his mother about his reluctance to marry Fiona — apparently, he is not interested in women at all.
  • Arranged Marriage: Was intended to marry Fiona as a way for her father to pay back his mother for turning him into a human. Unfortunately for him, she falls in love with and marries Shrek by the time he arrives to get her.
  • Ascended Extra: Downplayed. Charming was already a prominent antagonist in Shrek 2 but shifted to the Big Bad in Shrek the Third.
  • Beauty Is Bad: He may fit the textbook definition of the Handsome Prince archetype, but there's absolutely nothing good about him.
  • Big Bad: In Shrek the Third.
  • Blue Is Heroic: Inverted. His outfit is mostly blue with a few gold patterns in it, but he's an antagonist.
  • Breakout Villain: He went from the Fairy Godmother's dragon in Shrek 2 to the Big Bad of Shrek the Third. In addition, he's made several appearances in spinoff games such as Shrek SuperSlam and Shrek Smash N'Crash Racing, in part due to being the only main villain still alive at that point in the series.
  • The Caligula: Far Far Away becomes a Wretched Hive under his rulership.
  • Camp Straight: Although there has been speculation...
  • The Cavalry Arrives Late: He has a terrible habit of doing this. He's actually rather competent at both scheming and fighting, but almost always ends up stepping in only after he's already lost.
  • Despotism Justifies the Means: Once he takes over, he turns Far Far Away into a Wretched Hive. On top of that, the only thing Charming really does is force everybody to watch a musical he wrote and starred in about what a great person he thought he was. Though to be fair, he only ruled it for a week at the absolute most. Perhaps if his mother was still around (and/or Shrek, Fiona, and their fairy-tale friends weren't around to depose him), he would have been able to come up with some kind of government policy.
  • Disappeared Dad: His father is unnamed, never mentioned, and is most likely dead (he was probably a normal human like his son).
  • The Ditz: As a result of his mother handling everything for him. Hell, in Shrek 2, when impersonating Shrek, he doesn't even try to copy his mannerisms.
  • The Dragon: In Shrek 2, he is his mother's right hand.
  • Dragon Ascendant: In Shrek the Third he plans to finish where his mother started.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: It is shown he genuinely loves his mother and he mourns her death in Shrek the Third.
  • Evil Counterpart: He's essentially Fiona prior to her Character Development — stuck up, rude, and determined to achieve the typical fairy tale happy ending. Unlike Fiona, of course, he doesn't get better.
  • Evil Overlord: Briefly becomes one in Shrek the Third when he conquers Far Far Away.
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: Invoked with the theatrical performance he builds around Shrek's public execution, where he portrays himself as the dashing hero rescuing a beautiful princess and forces Shrek into the role of the villain.
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: Dragon crushes him with a prop tower, this time made of actual masonry, averting By Wall That Is Holey.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: After his mother's defeat in the second film, he's reduced to being a stage actor who is but a shell of his former self. He is considered a laughingstock, even by other villains. Later on, he's forced to partake into obvious villainy, and appeals to the villains' deepest desire for a happily ever after of their own, and becomes a serious threat after taking over Far Far Away.
  • Go-Karting with Bowser: He participates in the Far Far Away Idol in a DVD extra for Shrek 2, his animosity with Shrek and Fiona apparently forgotten or he just wanted an opportunity to be a big shot.
  • Gold Digger: He only wants to marry Fiona to become king and has no regard for the fact that she's in love with someone else nor using a love potion to ensure she falls in love with him.
  • Hair Flip: Constantly ("...with soft and bouncy haaaaaairrr!").
  • Half-Human Hybrid: His mother is a fairy, and his father is presumably human given his appearance.
  • Ironic Nickname: He's called Prince Charming, but he's far from it. This is most likely intentional.
  • "It" Is Dehumanizing: Shrek's existence repulses him, to the point that he refers to him as an "it".
  • Jerkass: He may look very handsome and dress in fine clothing, he is really a snobby, evil, power-hungry, psychopathic, and narcissistic villain.
  • Large Ham: Rupert Everett, 'nuff said.
  • Legion of Doom: Leads one in the third movie, made up of fairy tale villains. They, except for Charming himself, pull a Heel–Face Turn later on though.
  • The Load: Does very little to aid the Fairy Godmother during the climax except to throw her wand to her, which almost immediately backfires for her.
  • Not Quite Dead: If his appearance at the end of Thriller Night is canon, Charming survived his apparent death at the end of Shrek the Third.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: "Prince Charming" may not be his true name, and it belies who he really is, but it's the only name he's gone by for as long as he can remember.
  • Pretty Boy: Easily the prettiest male character in the series. Most likely invoked.
  • Prince Charmless: He doesn't look it, but that's his personality: quite the opposite of what his name suggests. He certainly thinks he's charming though.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Implied in Shrek 2 when he wanted the fantasy equivalent of a Happy Meal, which comes with a toy battle axe. Defending himself when Harold talks to him and his mother that Fiona isn't falling in love with Charming sounds like a child whining. Explored further in Shrek the Third.
  • Redemption Rejection: After the big pep talk from Arthur, all the villains have a Heel–Face Turn — except Charming who decides to slash Arthur.
  • Royal Brat: Underneath his pretenses, he's pretty much an overgrown, spoiled child.
  • Smug Snake: In both his movies.
  • Spoiled Brat: It's pretty obvious from his behavior that he's been coddled by his mother his whole life.
  • Uncertain Doom: He is defeated in Shrek the Third by having Dragon use her tail to knock a tower onto him. However, some argue over whether he died or not, as it seems that what landed on him was the tower's empty window in a similar style to the cardboard tower that fell on him at the beginning. If this is anything to go by, Shrek's dialogue about that he would still have to find his "Happily Ever After" for himself may be an indicator that they weren't going to kill him and thus they just used the tower to retain him, which means he may have survived, as he is also seen alive and well on the theater of Thriller Night after Shrek awakes from his nightmare.
  • Villain Song: In Shrek the Third, although it's more of a musical.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: He is not mentioned at all in Shrek Forever After, even though Fairy Godmother had originally arranged for him to save Fiona instead of Shrek, and the movie takes place primarily in a timeline where Shrek didn't save Fiona. It is simply said that no one came to save her at all. It's possible though that like all the other knights, he was killed by Dragon.
  • Would Hurt a Child: In Shrek The Third he has Donkey and Dragon's babies locked up in a zoo to be ridiculed as freaks and he also threatens Artie's life.
  • You Killed My Mother: Has a vendetta against Shrek and his friends for his mother's death.

    Rapunzel

Voiced by: Maya Rudolph
"Jealous Much?"

Rapunzel is Fiona's friend-turned-enemy and Charming's love interest. She is the secondary antagonist of Shrek the Third.


  • Ascended Extra: Went from having her hair show up in a cameo during the second movie to a secondary antagonist of the third movie.

    Rumpelstiltskin 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rumpelstiltskin.jpg
"Nobody's smug but me!"
Voiced by: Conrad Vernon (Shrek the Third), Walt Dohrn (Shrek Forever After)

"Just sign it, and all your problems will disappear."

Rumpelstiltskin is a short man who makes magical deals (complete with contracts). He is the Big Bad of Shrek Forever After.


  • Ambiguously Gay: Whereas Charming is just flat-out effeminate, Rumple has extremely flamboyant mannerisms and is obsessed with wigs.note 
  • Anime Hair: His wigs, all of which are as tall as he is and come in wacky styles and colors that go beyond their already silly Rococo origins. He even has one styled to look like a goose - not to make him look like a goose, as in the hair resembles an entire goose on his head!
  • Asshole Victim: Downplayed; he's not an asshole, but he, after his fake defeat, reacts with horror to his kingdom's fall.
  • Ax-Crazy: The scene with an actual axe is mere icing on the cake.
  • Bad Boss: He seems like a Benevolent Boss at first, letting his witches having a rave in his castle and all that. After Shrek escapes however, he drops all the niceness and starts threatening their lives, never mind that he was the one that pushed Shrek too far. Specifically: the scene where he summons a council of witches where he first starts out as a loving patron, scolds them about letting Shrek escape and finally snaps into rage, killing one of them on screen by pouring water onto her. That just doesn't mark him evil, but Ax-Crazy.
  • Big Bad: Far more convincingly than the other, halfway-sympathetic and part-ineffectual villains.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: His aforementioned obsession with wigs doesn't make him anything less dangerous and effective.
  • The Caligula: Far Far Away is a decaying ruin under his rule, with the city itself falling to pieces while he lives a life of extravagance in his palace.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Rivals Shrek at this.
  • Deal with the Devil: His job description.
  • Despotism Justifies the Means: In the Alternate Universe, the Far Far Away he rules is derelict and rotting, while he uses the ogre population and Shrek's pals for slave labor.
  • Dirty Coward: He gleefully rubs in Shrek's face how he's going to cease to exist once his 24 hours are up and that his children no longer exist as a consequence of their contract, and the minute Shrek snaps and struggles against his restraints to attack him, Rumple immediately hides behind his hourglass and orders his witches to attack.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Most notably the scene with the glass of water...
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He first appears in the third film as part of Prince Charming's army and returns in the fourth film with a redesign.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He reacts with horror when his goose Fifi disappears in the alternate timeline, and again when she's blown up by Fiona in the present timeline.
  • Evil Gloating: This proves to be his undoing, as Shrek will cease to exist once his 24 hours are up anyway. No further evil scheming required. But he feels the constant need "to plunge the knife in" and prove his superiority over his enemies. This allows Shrek to connect the dots and realize the consequences of his deal and reunite with his love to null and void it. Even then, when Rumple is aware of the risk he's in, he still later insists on imprisoning them both together to 'twist the knife'.
  • Evil Overlord: Achieves his goals more than Farquaad could ever have hoped.
  • Evil Redhead: Rumple is actually a redhead, but his "angry wig" symbolizes this trope.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Initially seems to be Affably Evil... until things fail to go his way.
  • Hidden Depths: In Shrek the Third, it's shown that he's genuinely saddened over not getting the firstborn baby that the miller's daughter promised him, to the point of getting a tattoo of a pacifier on his arm.
  • It's All About Me: He didn't care that Shrek's actions helped bring peace to Far Far Away, only that the ogre had ruined his business.
  • Jackass Genie: While not a genie, the fact that he grants wishes with frequent amounts of Loophole Abuse in his favor is his M.O.
  • Knight of Cerebus: While he's very over-the-top and Laughably Evil, the movie doesn't gloss over the fact that he's a vicious Manipulative Bastard who tricks Shrek into a Deal with the Devil that will end up with him being erased from existence at the end of the day, and consequently becomes a vicious dictator who destroys the Kingdom of Far Far Away, presumably killing and imprisoning hundreds of people in the process.
  • Large Ham: Ironically, given his height - he has a penchant for over-the-top mannerisms and costumes. Possibly the biggest in the series.
  • Manipulative Bastard: His essential function when he's not being a Smug Snake. He easily manipulates Shrek into making a deal with him by preying on the ogre's dissatisfaction with his life, and later convinces all of Far Far Away to hunt him down afterwards by promising a wish to whoever caught him.
  • Morality Pet: His pet goose Fifi is the only thing Rumpel even remotely cares about. When he becomes king of Far Far Away, he makes sure Fifi lives in luxury.
  • The Napoleon: Short, full of himself, and completely Ax-Crazy.
  • Ret-Gone: His fate in the alternate timeline, being wiped from existence like everything else. The Rumple in Shrek's timeline then gets apprehended and caged before he can even start his plan up.
  • Same Character, but Different: His appearances in the third and fourth movies directly contradict each other in appearance, motivations, and personality.
  • Smug Snake: While taking a break from manipulation. This proves to be a mistake.
  • Trrrilling Rrrs: Introduces himself as "Rrrumpelstiltskin" during his speeches.
  • Villain Ball: If he hadn't told Shrek exactly what the contract had done (removing the day of Shrek's birth), Shrek would never have been able to figure out his plan and would have disintegrated by the end of the day, leaving Rumpel to rule Far Far Away without opposition.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Determined not to let Shrek reclaim Fiona's love for him and nullify Rumpel's contract, Rumpel becomes more and more enraged in his determination to keep the alternate timeline the dystopia it is. When Shrek finally succeeds in reclaiming Fiona's true love's kiss, nullifying the contract, Rumpel starts begging for more time like a hysterical baby as his whole alternate reality falls apart before his very eyes.
  • Villain Has a Point: While he did manipulate Shrek in signing the contract to be an Ogre for a day and made it so Shrek was never born, when Shrek blames him for what he did to his family, Rumpel makes a valid point that Shrek willingly let him take any day from his past that he wanted and signed the contract of his own free will.
    Shrek: You took the day I was born...
    Rumpel: No, Shrek. You gave it to me.
  • Villainous Underdog: Unlike every other Big Bad in the series, Rumpelstiltskin (in the normal reality) commands no armies and is not royalty, just one supremely conniving Manipulative Bastard living alone in a trailer park who engineers his plans through lethally weaponized Loophole Abuse.
  • You Don't Look Like You: He looks much different from his appearance in Shrek the Third. It's possible this is a different Rumpelstiltskin altogether, given that the one seen the previous film gave up on being evil.

    Fifi 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fifi.png
Voiced by: Frank Welker

Fifi is Rumpelstiltskin's pet goose. She is also his bodyguard and carriage puller.


  • Cool Pet: A magical goose.
  • Fluffy the Terrible: In the alternate universe she's a giant, ferocious goose.
  • Jerkass: Fifi has a cranky and bitter character.
  • Lady Looks Like a Dude: Rumpelstiltskin calls Fifi her and Fifi doesn't get annoyed by this, meaning he couldn't have been mistaken.
  • Non-Human Sidekick: To Rumpelstiltskin.
  • Lack of Empathy: She doesn't care about Rumpelstiltskin. She is even out of sight when he is captured.
  • Perpetual Frowner: She is never seen smiling. Even when Rumpelstiltskin is throwing a party and when she's being groomed by the Three Little Pigs her expression remains the same.
  • Toothy Bird: Has prominent sharp teeth.

    Lancelot 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/char_53620.jpg
Voiced by: John Krasinski

Sir Lancelot is one of Arthur's classmates in high school. He's very handsome and muscular.


  • Adaptational Jerkass: A close ally and friend of King Arthur in the myth. Here, he is an archetypal bully toward Artie.
  • The Bully: An archetype example; he's a bully to the Cool Loser (Arthur).
  • Jerk Jock: A very typical jock-bully archetype, we see him picking on the unfortunate Frollo's Horse during his brief appearance in the third Shrek film, laughing when Frollo's Horse rides on Ms. Hamrack.
  • Popular Is Dumb: Not quite in the brains department.
  • Teens Are Monsters: He's a bully towards Arthur.

    Evil Stepsisters

Dorris
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mabeltransparent.png
Mabel
Voiced by: Larry King (Dorris), Regis Philbin (Mabel)

Cinderella's evil (until their Heel–Face Turn), ugly stepsisters.


  • Abhorrent Admirer: Dorris has strong feelings for Prince Charming (at least in terms of lust). Unfortunately, Charming isn't too thrilled about her pursuit. Seems to have changed after the third movie.
  • Cain and Abel: After becoming friends with Shrek and Fiona, Dorris was no longer welcomed to the Poison Apple as noted by Mabel. They’re on different sides of the main conflict in the third film with Dorris on the heroes’ side and Mabel on the villains’. They make up with each other in the end, though.
  • Cross-Dressing Voices: Both women are voiced by male actors.
  • Gonk: Both of them are unusually ugly women, with some doubting their gender.
  • Heel–Face Turn:
    • Possibly Dorris; while her introduction in the second film depicts her as the barkeep at a Bad-Guy Bar, she's shown to be friends with Fiona in the third film. Though it may be a subversion as it's ambiguous as to whether or not she was evil to begin with and not just ugly.
    • Mabel does a more clear cut one at the end of the third film, even reconciling with Dorris in the process.
  • The Lad-ette: Neither of them are particularly feminine, appearance or behavior-wise.
  • Not Evil, Just Misunderstood: Possibly Dorris, if her situation wasn't a Heel–Face Turn. She's friends with Fiona and even seems to be on good terms with Cinderella.
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Barkeeping: Mabel is introduced this way but spits into the glass
  • Show Some Leg: This is one of the ways Dorris distracts the guards in Shrek the Third. She was concealed behind a wall, and it could've been any of the princesses.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Dorris has two rs in her name, instead of one.

    The Pied Piper 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pied_piper.jpg
Voiced by: N/A

The Pied Piper appears briefly in the first film, among the fairy tale creatures exiled in Shrek's swamp, where he rallies many rats with his enchanted flute.

In Shrek Forever After, he is hired by Rumpelstiltskin to capture the ogres by forcing them to dance and follow him with his enchanted flute. He can handle different species (rats, ogres, witches...) or even objects (Rumpelstiltskin's socks) by setting the "target" dial of his flute. He never speaks and instead uses his flute to communicate. The Piper has no voice, but the flute performance was done by Jeremy Steig (original author William Steig's son).


    Jack and Jill

Voiced by: Billy Bob Thornton (Jack), Amy Sedaris (Jill)

Jack and Jill are a married, outlaw couple in the film Puss in Boots.


  • Battle Couple: An evil version, but they are very effective at fighting.
  • Beard of Evil: Jack has one.
  • Beauty Mark: Jill has one on the lower left side of her cheek, though she's far from beautiful.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: The true villains of Puss in Boots, since Humpty Dumpty was more of a sympathetic villain and was on Puss' side again rather quickly.
  • Co-Dragons: For Humpty, although they were planning to betray him from the start.
  • The Deep South: Both have southern accents.
  • Dragon-in-Chief: They are far more dangerous than Humpty and eventually betray him becoming the true villains of the film.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: They do seem to genuinely love each other and treat their pigs like their own children.
  • Gonk: Both are quite ugly.
  • Jerkasses: Mean, greedy, and ugly, Jack and Jill are two nasty outlaws united in a life of crime.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Zig-Zagged. They are both brutish and violent. However, Jack seems to have a more sensitive side (e.g. he brings up the idea of them having a baby.)
  • My Biological Clock Is Ticking: Inverted. Throughout the film, Jack suggests to Jill that they settle down and raise a child together, such as his favorite piglet Hamhock. Jill, however, is completely against the idea, preferring the criminal life instead.
  • Nice Hat: Jack wears a tall, grey one.
  • Outlaw Couple: They rob, terrorize, and murder together.
  • Pet the Dog: They also love and treat their pet pigs like their own kids.
  • The Starscream: They turn on Humpty despite helping his plan. Subverted in that Humpty was on Puss' side again by this point.
  • Trampled Underfoot: Both are crushed by the Great Terror during the climax.
  • Unholy Matrimony: Despite being an outlaw couple, Jack and Jill have a genuinely loving marriage.

    Luna/Lil' Witch 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/luna_shrek_superslam.jpg
Voiced by: Tara Strong

A witch who appears as an unlockable playable character in Shrek SuperSlam.


  • Bewitched Amphibians: Implied with her pet frog, which she seems to have primarily to reference the stereotype of witches turning people into frogs.
  • Blow You Away: One of Luna's combos involves her summoning a multi-hitting tornado above her opponent's head.
  • Cute Witch: Unlike every other witch in the Shrek series, Luna looks like an average teenage girl and lacks any notable Gonk features. However, she does have a love for Evil Laughs and many of her combos end with a Sneeze of Doom.
  • Evil Laugh: Has a tendency to laugh evilly whenever she's attacking an opponent.
  • Flat Character: Since she appears in SuperSlam with no plot significance or background information and is completely absent from the Story Mode, she has little characterization.
  • Flying Broomstick: Luna's main weapon is her broomstick, which she can use as a blunt melee weapon or fly on to reach higher places.
  • Grapple Move: One of her combo finishers has her use her frog's tongue to yank herself towards the opponent before kicking them away.
  • Secret Character: In SuperSlam, Luna is unlocked by completing Mega Challenge Clusters 26-30.
  • Sneeze of Doom: Many of her combos end with a sneeze that launches both her and her opponents away.
