I was wondering, does Shrek qualify as a villain? I'm talking about the 1990 book version, not the movie version. The movie version of Shrek is not a villain, he was just angry, but I am not sure if the book version is a villain. What exactly did he do that's evil? Can you elaborate? Sure, he seemingly attacked a dragon and a knight, but did he intentionally do it or does he do it because they antagonize him?
