–Big Bad Wolf

Big Bad Wolf, or just Wolfie, is a minor character in Shrek, Shrek 2, Shrek the Third, and Shrek Forever After.



The Big Bad Wolf first appeared in the film as one of the many fairy tales who where exiled to Shrek's swamp after Red Riding Hood sold him to Lord Farquaad 's army. Shrek discovers him lying in his bed. He wasn't seen further until Shrek's Karaoke Dance Party singing Who Let The Dogs Out along with The Three Little Pigs.

Shrek 2

It appeared that Wolfie had been living in the tower where Fiona was trapped. He was found in Fiona's bed by Prince Charming where Wolfie told him that Fiona was on him honeymoon, much to Charming's shock and outrage as well as the Fairy Godmother's fury. While Shrek, Princess Fiona and Donkey went to Far Far Away, Wolfie and the other fairy tale creatures watched over the swamp. He wasn't seen again until later on when he saw Shrek, Donkey and Puss in Boots getting arrested due to being framed by the Fairy Godmother. The group then went to the prison and helped the trio escape.

The Big Bad Wolf also helped Shrek defeat the Fairy Godmother at the end of the film by blowing her, causing her to drop her wand. He was later seen playing the guitar during the song Livin' la Vida Loca.

Shrek the Third

The Big Bad Wolf was at Fiona's baby shower and gave her a present. When Prince Charming and Captain Hook broke in, they demanded to know where Shrek was. Gingy refused to tell, and when confronted by Hook, his life flashed before his own eyes. Then Hook asked it to Pinocchio since he can't lie without his nose growing but he was twisting the truth and Bricks couldn't take it longer and told where Shrek was, with Wolfie only saying "Oh, Boy". The Big Bad Wolf was also at the big rescue scene in the end, where they fought the fairy tale villains and defeated Charming.

Shrek the Halls

The Wolf joins Christmas at Shrek's swamp. He has fun with his friends, and at the end of the film he kicks Pinocchio.

Shrek Forever After

When Shrek enters the alternate reality, Wolfie was Rumplestiltskin's Wig handler and he was wearing a maid outfit. He also had a brief appearance at the birthday party of the Ogre triplets, blowing up balloons but accidentally popping them when blowing too hard.

Swamp Talk

The Wolf was referenced several times in the series, having the most mentions compared to the other fairytale characters. His most prominent mention however was "Big Bad Wolf Retires?", where he was spotted going to a retirement home to get a new granny dress. This had been taking the wrong way, as the wolf had been planning another attack on a granddaughter.

Video Game Appearances

In Shrek: Reekin' Havoc, Wolf appears as one of the bosses.

Big Bad Wolf is a playable character in Shrek Super Slam, although, he does not wear his regular pink, instead his gown colors are red, blue, green, and yellow, but in the video game intro he is shown wearing the pink gown. It could have been the beta version of the character. He slam is huffing in pair and puffing it out, the direction of the blow can be controlled.

He also appeared in Shrek Smash and Crash Racing as the car of Red Riding Hood


Big Bad Wolf, like in the Three Little Pigs fairy tale, is capable of blowing strong winds, an ability which he used against the Fairy Godmother in the second film.


  • Despite only appearing in the ending, Wolfie had a personal ad seen in the queue of Shrek 4-D. However, this was quickly removed for being too extreme for family audiences. It stated, "Like hairy guys? Looking for a Big Bad boy to huff and puff and blow your mind? Not all the guys are wolves, but this one is.".
  • The reason Wolfie wears a dress (despite being male) is to disguise himself as the grandmother of the Little Red Riding Hood and the same one captured him.
