Lord Farquaad threatening Fiona with a sword at their marriage is certainly violence, but she gets away in time.

Fiona's high pitched singing makes a bird swell up until it goes *pop*. So yes an animal does die but it is pretty funny though.

Ehhhh. In the scene where Shrek and Donkey are 'rescuing' Fiona, Donkey flirts with the dragon to distract her. He quickly becomes distressed when she returns his advances. Your mileage may vary.

While escaping the dragon with Donkey and Fiona in hand, Shrek slides down a smooth concrete structure. A gap in the structure appears, and Shrek bumps against it with his groin, making a pained expression and a groan. He recovers fairly quickly however.

The Big Bad Wolf crossdresses and is predatory in the original story but the wolf isn’t explicitly trans nor predatory in the Shrek series. There is some very transphobic misrepresentation in the next two films, though.
