As stated above, they are characters that need to be rescued while Shrek and the gang are heading to Jack & Jill's farm. However, each goat has a different reaction and need of rescue. The first Gruff, William, tells the heroes about himself and informs them of his brothers who are being harassed by evil characters. The second brother (unnamed) is saved and is escorted through a bridge where the third brother is being trapped. A troll had gotten a hold of the goat and is about to saw him in half. Thankfully, the gang arrives to save the poor billy goat. After the level's completion, they are never seen again.
