Monsieur Hood is a minor antagonist in Shrek.



While Fiona sings, Monsieur Hood is heard crying "La liberté" (which is French for "the freedom") and he swings her up in a tree in an attempt to "rescue" her from Shrek, even though he is actually kidnapping her. He and his Merrymen sing a merry tune describing their reasons for kidnapping her, but after having cornered Shrek, ready to strike him down, Fiona knocks Monsieur Hood unconscious and starts fighting the Merrymen, easily defeating them. He is later seen at their wedding, indicating he had become friends with them.
