Fiona reveals herself to be more than just a pretty face; when the trio is attacked by a French-speaking Robin Hood (who assumes that the ogre has kidnapped Fiona), Fiona proves herself to be a martial-arts expert and single-handedly defeats the attackers.
During the rescuing of Princess Fiona from the dragon, in the part when Fiona says where the exit is and when Shrek says, "Well, I have to save my ass," (referring to Donkey), there is a cookbook in the background about how to eat a knight.
Fiona's "transformation" after she kisses Shrek is practically identical to the Beast's transformation in Beauty and the Beast.
