Top 50 Most Popular Shrek Characters Of All Time

top 50 most popular shrek characters of all time


The Shrek franchise is unquestionably one of the finest animated film franchises to have ever hit the screens.


The films in the series aimed to provide a fun and endearing touch to the traditional fairytale tropes and, in many ways, ended up changing how animated movies were both produced and screened for the big screen.


While the series sure is full of some truly amazing films, each of these features is also injected with exceptionally diverse and moving characters.


These characters have their respective strong points and have, therefore, helped the franchise come together in a big way.


The movies are packed with relatable emotions and slapstick comedy, but it is the dynamic personalities of the characters that truly bring the beauty of the story to the surface.


Needless to say, as viewers, we are happy that the franchise has a strong ensemble cast and that it does not just rely on just one or two characters to make a strong impression.


Better still, the characters can be distinguished based not only on their appearances but also on their morality, sense of humor, and level of intelligence and motivation, respectively.


It is not surprising then that these colorful personalities help in making the series even more engaging and interesting.


That being said, let’s now take a seat and get familiar with the finest characters of the beloved Shrek franchise.




1. Shrek




Shrek is hands down the best character in the franchise. For starters, it is most certainly his film series and he, of course, plays the central role in it.


An incredibly well-sketched and humorous character, he has inspired a lot of memes over the years; some of which have gone on to become a sensation on various social media platforms.


Shrek can come across as grumpy from time to time but he is also kind and emotional at heart.


This very trait gives him a definitive edge over the others and makes him relatable to the viewers. Add to that the fact that he is self-sufficient and a romantic at heart.


Even though he scares people away at first, those who are close to him realize how gentle he is as a person. He loves to live a simple life and despises unnecessary complications.


What makes him stand out from the crowd is that he can do anything for his lady love.




2. Donkey




While Shrek is the lead character in the film series, there’s nobody in the story who can match the entertainment value and dialogue delivery of the dynamic Donkey.


Sure, he is a supporting character who has been used efficiently by the makers as the ultimate comedic sidekick, his part is so good that he ends up stealing the show in more scenes than one.


Credit has to be given to the inimitable Eddie Murphy for playing this character with unmatched clarity and charm.


Donkey’s over-the-top dialogue delivery makes his punchlines come across as funnier than they usually are.


While he can be scared easily, he has enough sass and charisma to make his presence felt in the complicated and, yet, fascinating world of Shrek.


Needless to say, this smart-mouthed creature does everything he can to support Shrek and Fiona throughout the franchise. In fact, he doesn’t even hesitate before joining Shrek in running away from Farquaad’s guards. 


Expectedly, he becomes one of the only few species in the world who manages to find a place in Shrek’s good books over time.




3. Princess Fiona

Princess Fiona is one of the most admirable characters in the Shrek franchise of films.


What is most special about her is that most of her dialogues are a direct reflection of her splendid personality.


Not only do her punchlines attempt to combine both versions of her life but they also make the fans connect to her in a big way.


Therefore, it’d be safe to say that she makes her viewers believe that true beauty is confined to our hearts and that not everything that appears to be attractive is truly beautiful.


Deep as her character may sound, Fiona is also fun to catch on the screen. While she can be tender when she wishes to be, she can also get stern when the circumstances require her to.


However, what is truly worth mentioning is that she is a close-to-perfect example of feminism in fairy tales. While she was first objectified as a lady, she goes on to prove that she is much more than her social status.


Over time, we see her putting her remarkable capabilities as a martial artist on display.


In addition to her aforementioned attributes, she gives the audience a ton of humor to savor. 



4. The Gingerbread Man

The Gingerbread Man is one of those supporting characters that comes across as interesting right from the very first time he appears on the screen.


He is full of sass and assurance and he never backs down from sharing his perspectives; a trait that makes him extraordinarily special and entertaining to catch on the screen.


Even though The Gingerbread Man ends up getting himself in a whole lot of trouble throughout the franchise, he does not allow his confidence to recede.


And, we all are duly aware of the fact that anyone who thrives on their confidence is truly fun to be around. Be that as it may, Gingy comes across as quite cheerful and carefree when we first look at him.


However, we soon realize that he is as snarky and anxious as one can get. He was created by the Muffin Man, along with a ton of other Gingerbread people.


Since he was created masterfully, he also seems to be quite devoted to his craft with gingerbread houses.



5. Puss In Boots


Puss In Boots


One of the most amazing and popular characters to have been sketched for the Shrek film series has to be Puss In Boots.


A classic fairytale character in the true sense of the word, Puss In Boots could come across as dependable, endearing, or lethal; depending on the need of the hour.


He’s full of conviction and charisma and does not think twice before taking his enemies head-on.


His confidence is only aided by his sharp sword fighting skills; something that made the series even more thrilling to watch. We’d also like to mention that his flirtatious endeavors with Princess Fiona were superbly funny and sweet to watch.



6. The Fairy Godmother


The Fairy Godmother


Shrek is one of those rare animated film franchises that thrives on its entertaining set of villains.


The Fairy Godmother, who is supposed to do justice to her name, is given a dramatic twist by the makers of the franchise.


Instead of being delightful and constructive, she turns out to be shockingly distrustful.


However, these traits do make her come across as intriguing. The fact the essence of the character is turned entirely on its head makes it even more special for the fans of the franchise.



7. Prince Charming


Prince Charming


Prince Charming is another super stylish villain from the Shrek movie franchise to make it to our story.


His charm, chutzpah, and sense of humor make him an exceptional character to watch on the screen.


Even though he bluffs to be smart, dangerous, and a possible knight in shining armor, in reality, he is the trademark example of a momma’s boy.


This, in turn, gives a rather splendid twist to his character. He may not be a trained soldier, but he is firm in his often exaggerated opinions and does his best to prove his theories right.


In addition, he enjoys flirting and is quite fond of dressing himself up.



8. Lord Farquaad


Lord Farquaad


Even though Lord Farquaad might technically be a wrongdoer, he is also among the better characters in the Shrek film series.


The pompous character has been sketched well and his boisterous temperament provides a ton of enjoyable moments to the audience.


Furthermore, his exaggerated antics make him come across as someone who cannot be ignored.


That said, Lord Farquaad may not be unbelievably tall or terrifying, but his give-a-damn attitude more than makes up for his not-so-scary physical appearance.



9. King Harold


King Harold


King Harold has got to be one of the most polarizing characters in the Shrek series of movies.


Nowhere is this more apparent than when he is compelled to be comfortable with the idea of having Shrek around after trying his best to get rid of him initially.


Needless to say, his character sketch has managed to divide opinions among the fans; especially after he goes on to show his rare soft side.


Even though he comes across as harsh and intolerant, he can also sometimes win one over with his surprising acts of kindness.


Over and above everything else, what makes King Harold likable and relatable is that he only hopes for the best of things to happen for his daughter.


Sure, he is not able to convey his emotions like most of us do, but he is always ready to go out of his way to ensure that his beloved daughter is happy and content with her life.



10. Pinocchio




There is no denying that Pinocchio is one character that everyone has been acquainted with for quite a long time.


The core concept behind the creation of this character was to make him come across as anxious and jittery, and, of course, more mainstream.


His nervousness makes him converse a lot and is, therefore, followed by the expansion of his popular nose.


However, what makes the character even better is that he lies a lot less if he manages to communicate for a long time.


This is not only an incredibly clever way to give his character an edge, but it is also funny and endearing in equal measure.



11. Dragon




Do we need to have an understanding of languages and dialects to communicate with other species on the planet? Well, maybe not in the world of Shrek


Meet Dragon; someone who cannot speak in any language, but can comprehend most humans without breaking a sweat.


While this may tell a lot about her ability to understand others, it also goes on to underscore that she is possibly the only bilingual character in the franchise.


Although we are not certain if the impressive Dragon applies makeup to herself, we can though vouch for the fact that she does turn out to be the ultimate savior in the first film.



12. Magic Mirror


Magic Mirror


One of the most enigmatic characters in the franchise is Magic Mirror, who is devoted to nobody but himself.


He does not have the time for anybody else, but that is probably because he thinks that nobody can understand him as well as he understands himself.


Since Magic Mirror realizes that he is under constant threat, he tries to use his skill in the best possible way to stay both safe and relevant.


One cannot help but appreciate the conviction with which he showcases potential brides for the narcissistic Lord Farquaad.



13. King Arthur Pendragon


King Arthur Pendragon


King Arthur Pendragon has been voiced by Justin Timberlake in the animated feature film and James Arnold Taylor in the video game. He happens to be the cousin of Princess Fiona which makes him a cousin-in-law to our main lead, Shrek.


Loosely based on King Arthur, Arthur is a supporting character who makes his presence felt in Shrek the Third. His transition from someone who is relentlessly bullied to an individual who can manage to make people believe his abilities is remarkable, to say the least.


It is not surprising then that the story of how he commences his reign as the King of Far Far Away has its own interest.



14. The Big Bad Wolf


The Big Bad Wolf


The Big Bad Wolf is a character that has been voiced by Aron Warner for the films and James Arnold Taylor for the video games.


Even though he is partly based on the eponymous fairytale character, he differs from it in the sense that he js shown to be compassionate in the universe of Shrek. The Big Bad Wolf is barely seen speaking but when he does utter a word or two, his tone comes across as dreary and uneventful.


He is often seen donning a pink dress and has a tiny role to play in Shrek Forever After.



15. The Three Little Pigs


The Three Little Pigs


The Three Little Pigs turn out to be faithful pals to our beloved protagonist Shrek. They have a German accent and appear in all of the Shrek motion pictures.


Both in the original book and the films, they are among the numerous fairytale creatures who have been handed over an “eviction notice” by Lord Farquaad.


That is precisely how they end up at Shrek’s swamp. They soon become good friends with both Shrek and Fiona and start looking after their house while the couple goes to visit Far Far Away.


Having said that, The Three Little Pigs are less prominent in the third film.



16. The Three Blind Mice


The Three Blind Mice


The Three Blind Mice, like their name suggests, are a trio of indistinguishable blind mice brothers who, along with a few other creatures, have been banished to Shrek’s swamp by Lord Farquaad.


They have an English accent each and go on to become good friends with Shrek over time.


Since the plot requires them to be blind, they are seen donning black sunglasses and are carrying a cane each.



17. Dronkeys




Ever heard of a hybrid offspring of a dragon and a donkey? Yes, we have, and they are called Dronkeys.


Introduced in Shrek 2 to provide a decent laugh to the audience, the six young hybrid donkey-dragon children develop a liking towards their father as soon as they are introduced to him in Far Far Away after Dragon reunites with Donkey.


The Dronkeys, whose names are Eclair, Bananas, Peanut, Parfait, Coco, and Debbie, have been allotted little screen time in Shrek the Third.


While Donkey himself is a delightful character, the addition of the Dronkeys only makes his chemistry with them a bit more fun to watch on-screen.



18. Farkle, Fergus, and Felicia


Farkle, Fergus, and Felicia


Since we have already introduced the darling couple of Fiona and Shrek to you, let us now take you down memory lane and introduce to you their precious children.


The Ogre Triples, named Farkle, Fergus, and Felicia, are three adorable children to Shrek and Princess Fiona.


While Farkle and Fergus are males, Felicia is female. The lovely sight of triplets celebrating Christmas with their parents is truly one to behold.


Aside from being the testimony to Shrek and Fiona’s love, the triplets are also a magnificent addition to the list of characters in the series.



19. Queen Lillian


Queen Lillian


Queen Lillian has been voiced by the iconic Julie Andrews. The dowager queen of Far Far Away is a widow of King Harold and mother to Princess Fiona. She undergoes a transition following the demise of her beloved husband.


She makes her debut in the second installment of the Shrek franchise and her character is shown to be visibly surprised by the fact that her daughter has transformed into an ogre.


However, she accepts Shrek into the family after she realizes that her daughter is happy with her married life.


That said, she is shown to be evolving into a more tenacious character in Shrek the Third.



20. Doris




Doris, who makes her debut appearance in Shrek 2, is also seen returning in Shrek the Third and for a few moments in Shrek Forever After, respectively.


Even though she is based on one of Cinderella’s two awful stepsisters, she is nothing but friendly to Fiona.


Initially, she is seen as a tall and independent woman who likes to put on makeup like Elizabeth Taylor.


Her masculine voice makes you feel that she is supposed to resemble a drag queen.


That said, Doris is also seen becoming a decent friend to Shrek in Shrek the Third. And oh, she even has a crush on Prince Charming and is seen forcing him to kiss her.



21. Snow White


Snow White


Snow White has been voiced by Amy Poehler (not the singing voice), and is yet another friend of Princess Fiona.


What is worth mentioning about her is that she uses her singing talent to make all the other animals follow her orders whenever she wants them to.


She makes a cameo appearance in the first film when she is shown to be among the fairytale creatures who have been banished to Shrek’s swamp.


A proud character, Snow White makes an appearance in Shrek the Third and is shown to be sleeping in a coffin that is handled by the seven dwarves.



22. Cinderella




Voiced by Amy Sedaris, Cinderella is yet another fairytale character who turns out to be one of Princess Fiona’s good friends.


She is seen wearing a pair of glass slippers throughout Shrek the Third, and uses them as a weapon when she needs to.


Since she’s done a ton of household work for her stepmother and stepsisters, she has gotten used to having everything around her neat and clean.


Also, Lord Farquaad is shown to have kept Cinderella as one of his options after he is compelled to have a wife so that he can become king.


Cinderella appears more prominently in the third installment of the Shrek franchise.



23. Sleeping Beauty


Sleeping Beauty


Sleeping Beauty has been voiced by Cheri Oteri. She is yet another character from the universe of Shrek who appears more prominently in the third installment.


A friend to Princess Fiona, Sleeping Beauty, like her name suggests, likes nothing more than to sleep.


And, because she is often found to be in a deep slumber, very little about her personality is known to the audience.


However, the viewers can most probably gauge that Sleeping Beauty is a kind and eccentric character.


In Shrek 2, she is shown to be partying with several other princesses at night; an outing that Princess Fiona is not able to attend due to her ogre appearance.



24. Merlin




Merlin has been voiced by Eric Idle and is a former wizard teacher from Arthur’s high school.


After a ship carrying Shrek, Donkey, Puss, and Artie crashes into the rocks in Shrek the Third, they are left stranded on an island.


In the third installment itself, the group happens to meet Artie’s retired teacher, Merlin. This happens when Artie tries to separate himself from Shrek.


Merlin also makes a cameo appearance as one of the fairytale creatures banished to Shrek’s swamp. She is an eccentric character whose magic spells usually go wrong.



25. Brogan




Brogan is a brave ogre and the second-in-command of the Ogre Resistance in Shrek Forever After. Voiced efficiently by Jon Hamm, he’s got an unshaven face, really short hair, and uses his nose to disseminate music.


While he is taller and better looking than Shrek, he is also equally compassionate and loyal.


Not only that but Brogan is also the strongest of all ogres. His strength becomes clear when he pulls the Skull Chains that are being carried by the witches and are attached to him.


This makes the Witches fall from their broomsticks.



26. Cookie




Voiced by Craig Robinson, Cookie is an ogre who has an important role to play in the Ogre Resistance.


He is a dynamic chef who utilizes food as his weapon against the witches and Rumpelstiltskin in the Ogre Resistance in Shrek Forever After.


An outgoing and friendly ogre, he takes a cartful of his signature dish – the chimichanga – to the ambush of Rumpelstiltskin.


Cookie is the only ogre to take satisfaction in his dancing while Pied Piper plays his flute. He can be recognized courtesy of the garlics that he has tied to his goatee.


Also, he is usually seen in the typical chef hat.



27. Gretched




Gretched has been voiced by Jane Lynch for the viewers of the franchise. She is a female ogre who makes an appearance in Shrek Forever After. She is a strong soldier who has a critical role to play in the Ogre Resistance.


However, what separates her from Fiona is the fact that the former behaves more like the other male ogres.


This is primarily because unlike the latter, Gretched is not exactly tender in her approach towards things or people.


Even though her mannerisms adhere to the stereotypes attached to male ogres, she is willful and dependable in her way.



28. Humpty Alexander Dumpty


Humpty Alexander Dumpty


Humpty Alexander Dumpty is an interesting character who has been voiced by the inimitable Zach Galifianakis.


He and Puss used to be the best of friends when they were kids.


However, after Puss turned out to be a local hero, Humpty started to grow jealous of his fame.


He went on to convince Puss to rob a bank with him and, thus, turned him into an outlaw.


Humpty Alexander Dumpty is known as Master Fu In Shrek Super Slam and is also mentioned by Puss In Boots in Puss in Boots: The Three Diablos.



29. Kitty Softpaws


Kitty Softpaws


Kitty Softpaws is a black tuxedo cat who has been voiced by Salma Hayek. Since her character is sketched to be different and stylish, Hayek’s amazing voice only ends up giving her a distinctive touch.


She has a white chest, white paws, great eyebrows, and bright blue eyes; traits that make her come across as alluring.


Not only that but Kitty Softpaws can also be seen carrying a dagger in her brown belt, which goes well with her dark brown boots.


Her fur is very thick and she is an incredible thief, to say the least.


However, she manages to stun the viewers when it is revealed that she had teamed up with the envious Humpty to fool Puss.


Be that as it may, she does end up falling in love with Puss during their many adventures and, eventually, ends up saving him.



30. Rumpelstiltskin




Rumpelstiltskin has been voiced by Conrad Vernon in Shrek the Third and by Walt Dohrn in the subsequent Shrek media.

Jack and Jill


Jack and Jill are a married couple who have been voiced by Billy Bob Thornton and Amy Sedaris.


In Puss in Boots, they are shown to be in possession of the magic beans from the Jack and the Beanstalk story.


These magic beans are the same that Puss, Kitty Softpaws, and Humpty Dumpty manage to steal to find their way into the giant’s keep.


Throughout the screenplay, Jack is seen trying to persuade Jill to have a baby as he wishes to start a family soon.


However, he happily sacrifices his wishes after he sees Jill’s reluctance for the same.



32. Thelonious




Thelonious is yet another villainous character to make it to our list. He has been voiced by Christopher Knights.


He is one of Lord Farquaad’s henchmen and executioner who always has his face covered by a hood; perhaps to make him come across as deadly.


Furthermore, he has huge muscles and is mostly seen wearing tight costumes. Not only is he the one who tortures Gingy and breaks his legs but he is also audacious enough to threaten the Magic Mirror by suggesting Lord Farquaad shatter it to pieces.


In Shrek 4-D, Thelonious is seen abducting Fiona to ensure that the spirit of Farquaad can slay her and make her his spirit queen.



33. Rapunzel




Rapunzel happens to be one of Princess Fiona’s former friends. She is a rather snobbish and proud character who does not seem to get along well with the others; especially not with Snow White.


The character has been voiced by Maya Rudolph and is first seen during Fiona’s baby shower in Shrek the Third. However, she has nothing but love in her heart for Prince Charming.

The Evil Trees


While we are including a lot many wicked characters in our list, we must not forget to make The Evil Trees a part of it.


The Evil Trees are a group of wicked trees who make a brief appearance in the second installment of the Shrek movies.

That said, he does appear in the third animated film as well and can be seen with Prince Charming in his invasion of villains.

However, wouldn’t that be a task given the fact that he has no head? Hmmm.



41. Monsieur Robin Hood


Monsieur Robin Hood


Monsieur Robin Hood, who has been voiced charmingly by Vincent Cassel, is a French-accented version of Robin Hood who makes his vain presence felt in the first Shrek film itself.


Initially, he thinks that Shrek has abducted Princess Fiona. This is precisely when he and his men introduce themselves with the help of a melody and decide to “save” Fiona from Shrek.


However, Fiona is not the one to be impressed by Monsieur Robin Hood’s antics. She finds the song incredibly irritating and, therefore, pins him and his entire squad to the ground.


This is something that truly impresses Shrek. Having said that, Robin and his gang do not have any real malice towards Shrek.


This becomes clear when they are seen attending the couple’s wedding.



42. Sir Lancelot


Sir Lancelot


Sir Lancelot has been voiced by actor John Krasinski, and was one of Arthur’s classmates in high school.

They are brought to life by Fairy Godmother to provide a fair bit of comfort to Princess Fiona.
