Neptune is a character who only appeared in the Shrek comics.

Role in the comics

One of his daughters, an unnamed Teen Mermaid, was accidentally hooked by Shrek during a fishing trip. She jumps back into the ocean to summon Neptune to settle things with Shrek and his friends. Neptune is understandably angry, and proceeds to create giant waves in an attempt to drown the gang. All this does is destroy the wooden boat and wash up Shrek, Donkey, and Puss onto the Island of Lilliput.
