- Acceptable Targets: Jack and Jill, depicted as gun-toting, pig-rearing rednecks, as the designated villains in a Hispanic scenario.
- And the Fandom Rejoiced: Guillermo del Toro. That is all.
- People seemed to have completely glossed over the fact that he also produced Megamind!
- Anticlimax Boss: When they reach the giant's castle, Humpty reveals that the giant living there is already dead.
- Crowning Music of Awesome: Both of the songs contributed by Rodrigo Y Gabriela.
- Ensemble Darkhorse: The "oooh" cat has its own fanbase. Doubles as Memetic Mutation.
- Family-Unfriendly Aesop: Two in the original tale - "It's good to be a Magnificent Bastard" and "If you want to get laid you need to be young and pretty".
- Fridge Horror: Kitty Softpaws was declawed by the couple who took her in. She's a talking, sentient animal. No wonder her backstory didn't get a flashback...
- Humpty's "It ain't over easy" line followed by the cat going "Ooh" and covering his mouth. Did anyone else think Prison Rape when this was shown?
- Hilarious in Hindsight: Puss got his trademark boots from a woman named Imelda. Imelda Marcos is the First Lady to famously scandal-laden and dethroned former President of The Philippines Ferdinand Marcos, and she was known for a very large shoe collection
- In Shrek Forever After, Rumplestiltzkin had an odd choice of animal for a pet that wasn't central to the plot at the time. It was a giant goose.
- Jerkass Woobie: Humpty is clearly in the wrong, but you can't deny just how much crap they went through.
- Memetic Mutation: "Ooooohhhh...."
- Nightmare Fuel: The mother goose, at least while they're on top of the beanstalk. Also the fact that Humpty was there. From the very start of the film.
- Surprisingly Improved Sequel: The movie's been much better-received than the two Shrek sequels that came before it, and received reviews almost as good as the well-loved first two Shrek movies.
- Tear Jerker: Kitty's backstory: The couple that took her in certainly meant well (at first, at least), but eventually declawed her.
- Uncanny Valley - Those dancing pigs.
- Humpty dips into this too, for some viewers.
