The Top Ten
1 Shrek Shrek is a character debuting in the 2001 animated movie of the same name. The popular franchise has 4 films and the character himself has become recognizable to people of all ages. He has since spawned into what is most likely the most widely recognized internet meme to ever come into the world.

Shrek is a legend, he truly is what make the movies give you a heartwarming, feel good feel. I loved these movies as a young kid and still love them now

Shrek is the main and central character. Most people that have a heart can relate with how he feels making his story extremely entertaining and irresistible.

Shrek might be the greatest creature ever created in a human mind, an absolute inspiration for all of us.

Shrek: Those are some nice leotards, though.
Prince Charming: Oh, thank you.
Shrek: Do they come in men's sizes?

2 Puss in Boots

Even though I don't count the movies after the first as canon.
Come on Shrek a depressed ogre who finds happiness with true love in the tower Princess Fiona and at the end they go off into the sun and happy ever after.
Puss in Boots is a cute character, and new friend in the second.

He's charming, caring, sweet, and his voice is awesome! Not to mention that he's a great sword fighter, but he doesn't loathe violence which I love.

He is just amazing. He is adorable when he makes everyone love him with that face. How can you NOT love him?
I even named my cat after him.

His entrance into the 3rd film was iconic. My only complaint with the character is that he should've appeared in the first film.

3 Donkey

I love Donkey. He is very funny and chatty. Plus, he is very humorous. He is such a great sidekick with a nice groove. Overall, he is my favorite.

But you gotta have friends. That was hilarious how he said that.

Very hilarious! I would love to see a movie about Donkey.

Love him! He's funny and an amazing friend to shriek and princess Fiona

4 Princess Fiona

She's not so damsel in distress. I mean, she did get captured and did expect a prince to come, but that's only because her parents wanted to protect her, she didn't have a choice, and she wanted to break the curse by finding her true love. She's an awesome fighter and can defend herself really well, especially when she was pregnant in the third movie. She's awesome!

Another character who in the "children's" original picture book of Shrek in 1990, she looks like a monster not an ogre but this dark thing you can't tell what it is. I suppose Shrek's parents in the picture book are creepy too, you'd think both were male.

She proves that females can be strong without cramming it down your throat. They did a good job with her.

She deserves to burn in the fiery pits of hell for being cruel to animals.

5 The Gingerbread Man

His scene with Farquaad is still makes me laugh. The whole "do you know the muffin man" scene... and the line "NOT my gumdrop buttons!" too funny!

It's not that I don't like Donkey but why doesn't everyone say he's the best character? Gingy is the best by far he so funny and so brave.

Definitely the most funny character in shrek! He still makes me laugh!

The only thing I don't like about him, is that the other characters call him Gingy.

6 Dragon

I like her, she made a plot twist in the first movie that I didn't expect. I didn't expect her to become Donkey's wife!

Dragon is one of the best.

She should be number 1

7 Lord Farquaad Lord Farquaad is the main antagonist of the 2001 animated feature film, Shrek, as well as Shrek 4D. He is voiced by John Lithgow.

Men of Farquaad's stature are in *short* supply. Though, there are people who think *little* of him. He's a size *short* in terms of clothes. I've got pages of these things, I could go on.

He's my god emperor. He's the greatest character in the history.

I am him in a play

I just love him

8 The Fairy Godmother

The Fairy Godmother wasn't scared of anybody, had a fabulous manicure, singing ability, and was a badass business woman.

Fairy Godmother is a totally overrated clown who speaks without knowing the facts.

I thought I told you ogres don't live... happily... ever... AFTER!

The antagonist of film 2

9 Prince Charming

Prince Charming lost much of their money on that run - that's why Prince Charming carries their own bags now.

10 Magic Mirror

Most normal character

He's a hype-beast.

The Contenders
11 Queen Lillian
12 Rumpelstiltskin

Witches! Pass me my angry wig!

His wigs are funny

Not the big ball!

13 Snow White

She was in shrek 2 gold...only good part!

She was so funny in Shrek the third.

14 Pinocchio

Just see the hilarious moments in 2 and 3 and youll know why he's so funny.

15 Muffin Man
16 Thelonious
17 Cinderella
18 King Harold
19 Big Bad Wolf

You can't beat the gender confused wolf. His monotonous voice is dry and funny.

I am him in my school production.

21 Rapunzel
