Donkey is first seen on a leash with his owner in a line, where fairy tale creatures are being given to the Duloc Guards for money.

Donkey exposes himself by boasting as he soars upwards, but then the magic wears of...

Contrary to his species' stubborn stereotypes, Donkey is a hyperactive, simple-minded chatterbox and sociable to a fault. He enjoys singing, idle chatter and often speaks ebonics, and while rarely ill-intentioned can prove rather oblivious and irritating those around him (especially Shrek). Donkey is also often quite cowardly and tends to panic in the face of danger, which often proves trying in emergencies when coupled with his impatience and short attention span. Some of Donkey's foibles include loudness, acrophobia, colorblindness, hypochondria (fear of illness), and cowardice. For these reasons and more, Donkey can prove to be somewhat of a (dense, irritating, miniature beast of) burden when journeying with others. However, there is one thing Donkey is very stubborn about - making friends. Despite his many flaws, Donkey is a loyal character whose friendliness comes from a place of genuine kindness, and it's been proven multiple times that his insistence on becoming friends with...In a faux interview with Donkey in 2001, he mentions wanting to work on Broadway and film.

Donkey is extremely talkative. However, despite his childlike excitement, he is clear-minded as he does not see Shrek as a threat when he first roars at him. He loves to dance, enjoys singing, idle chatter, which proves rather annoying to those around him. Being a donkey, he has a sweet tooth and enjoys such foods as parfait, cake, waffles (his favorite) and "upside-down coconut souffle with mango chutney sauce",has acrophobia, colorblindness, hypochondria (fear of illness), cowardice, impatience and short attention span, is often innocent and tactless, and even a bit dim. In a scene about Merlin's bonfire, Donkey's sweet tooth gets the best of him, for he sees only a fudge torte in the enchanted smoke. Despite his annoying traits, flightiness and occasional cowardliness, Donkey is a good-natured, golden-hearted, sweet, and euphoric character. He is a deeply caring and loyal friend who will stick by his best friends side and be supportive of them through thick and thin, especially S...
Not much is known about Donkey, though he mentions in Shrek 2, after being asked by Shrek to think of the saddest thing that ever happened to him, he mentions that he was sold for some magic beans and that he was pinned a tail on at a party, then the guests got drunk and started shouting Pinata, pinata, pinata. Presumably was later given to the Old womanwho was his owner at the start of the first film.
The first appearance of Donkey is when an old woman tries to sell him to Lord Farquaad's guards for money. Since Donkey refuses to talk, the captain doesn't believe that he can. After the old woman is arrested, never to be seen again, Donkey finally speaks while enjoying some flying pixie dust, convincing the captain. By his own oral accounts, Donkey had suffered a life of abuse and ridicule before (literally) running into Shrek, a satanically grouchy, reclusive ogre in the first film. When S...

Donkey is enjoying fatherhood in Shrek the Third, but he is still first and foremost Shrek's sidekick and closest friend. When Far Far Away is in need of a new king, Donkey ventures off with Shrek in search of Fiona's cousin Arthur Pendragon, known simply as Artie at the Worcestershire boarding school where he resides. When Fiona announces her pregnancy, Donkey is very excited about that he's going to be an "uncle". In their magical transport back to Far Far Away (aided by a slightly off-kilt...
In the 2008 musical adaptation of Shrek, Donkey is portrayed by Tony nominee Daniel Breaker. Breaker said that he had never seen any of the Shrek films before and chose not to, so his performance would not be a copy of Eddie Murphy's Donkey. The main (and possibly only) difference between the animated and musical versions of Donkey is that on Broadway Donkey walks on his "hind" legs; otherwise, the two are the same lovable jabbering jackasses. Donkey's past is never brought up, but at one point he tells Shrek that he "did six years in solitary (confinement) for impersonating a pinata". After Shrek leaves his swamp to confront Lord Farquaad, Donkey literally runs into him while trying to escape the lord's goons. When Shrek succeeds in frightening them away, Donkey refuses to leave Shrek's side and begs him to "Don't Let Me Go". Shrek reluctantly allows him to tag along and they meet Farquaad together, who sends them to rescue Princess Fiona.

Donkey is a calm and well-mannered talking donkey, though sometimes a bit energetic with a hunger for adventure. He has a very good heart, but his end-less talk and confused personality can be somewhat annoying for others, which makes him somewhat of a nuisance, but he never holds any bad intentions. Because of the life of abuse he suffered before meeting Shrek, Donkey was left with an extreme obsession for friendship to the point that he have little to no regard for Shrek's wish of privacy. Donkey enjoys singing, idle chatter and often speaks ebonics, which annoys others, mainly his best friend Shrek. Despite his hunger of adventure, Donkey is extremely fearful and cowardly, being afraid of heights, dark, ghosts, spiders, blood and several other things. His cowardice can even led him to be paranoid, such as when he thought he was melting when it actually was just the rain. Despite his fears getting the best of him, Donkey is extremely heroic and noble, and cares deeply for his fami...
