Shrek is one of America’s true icons — up there with the Founding Fathers and McDonald’s. What is cinema without Smash Mouth's “All Star” playing over a Scottish-voiced ogre using the bathroom. It’s a film that has inspired generations. But what about the man himself? What do we know about Shrek? Well, we know he’s a loving father, homeowner, king and… one of a kind.

Here are some of the most Shrek moments of Shrek’s whole career. The type of moments that make you go, “Yup, that’s a Shrek.” Not his scariest or his funniest but his most quintessential — the key to understand who he is, inside. Lotsa layers in this onion, but if we peel it all down we might find the heart of an ogre that’s … very interested in just kinda being a prick a lot. It’s normally the less physically capable one that mocks the opponent for their size, but with Shrek? He’s the verbal and physical best. In celebration, here are his Shrekiest moments.
