Little Red Riding Hood is shown at the beginning of Shrek 2, coming to the gingerbread house (from Hansel and Gretel) and running away, screaming, leaving her basket behind after seeing Shrek and Fiona as ogres.

Shrek the Third

She makes two cameos in Shrek the Third: first being seen drinking in the Poison Apple, and later being seen pick pocketing a dwarf's pockets while cloaked in her red hood.

Video Game Appearances

Little Red appears in Shrek 2 (video game) as a playable character, now renamed Lil' Red.

She is playable in "Spooky Forest", "Far Far Away", "Ogre Killer", "Fairy Godmother's" and "Prison Break", as well as the bonus game, "Ring Coliseum". Her special ability has her throw a rotten apple, which then explodes.
