Best Shrek Characters

Shrek is a Dreamworks media franchise that focuses on Shrek, an outcast ogre who reluctantly rescues a princess, setting off many subsequent adventures in a fairy tale world.
The Top Ten
1 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 my favorite character in the Shrek franchise. I love cats. Plus, he talks, he fights, he wears a hat and boots, he's charming and caring and he does those adorable kitten eyes that not even the bad guys can resist. What's not to love about him?

2 Shrek Shrek is a fictional ogre and titular character of the Shrek franchise. He debuted in the 2001 animated movie of the same name. He is voiced by Mike Myers.

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

3 Donkey

I like Donkey, but he can be pretty annoying sometimes. But he's one of my favourite characters. He's also a great husband towards Dragon & a great father towards all of his Dronkeys.

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.

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.

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!

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!

She's a nice dragon. She's one of the good characters.

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.

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!

9 Magic Mirror
10 Queen Lillian

Lillian is one of the nicest characters.

The Contenders
11 Rumpelstiltskin
12 King Harold
13 Prince Charming

I hate him. He's not as good looking as he's made out to be, he has an annoying voice and he's a momma's boy. Plus, he only wants Fiona so he be king of Far Far Away.

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

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 Big Bad Wolf

Not that it matters, but, does anyone notice, that during the battle against the fairy godmother, he blows a huge gust of wind at her? That role belongs to the wolf from The three little pigs, when this wolf is clearly the one from Little Red Riding Hood. Is he two wolves combined into one?

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

I am him in my school production.

18 Snow White

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

She was so funny in Shrek the third.

19 Robin Hood

Robin Hood was one of the hottest characters in the Shrek franchise. His charisma and outgoing ness really tingles my Pringle's. But he was destroyed by Fiona in that one scene in Shrek 1.

20 Three Little Pigs
21 Three Blind Mice
22 Cinderella
23 Doris
24 Sleeping Beauty
25 The Pied Piper
