    Donkey is a major character from the Shrek franchise who appeared on the first Shrek film where he became friends with Shrek after first meeting him and he has a crush on Dragon, he is voiced by Eddie Murphy.

    Why He's Everyone's Favorite Donkey

    1. In the same vein as Patrick, Dory, Mater and Scrat, he's one of the most memorable comic reliefs in all of animation and movies in general, not only having made a ton of internet memes, but stealing the spotlight whenever he appears too.
    2. He is one of the funniest things about the Shrek films and what made them so well remembered by many people.
    3. Eddie Murphy, who memorably voiced Mushu, does a brilliant job voicing him.
    4. When he first meets Shrek, Donkey wasn’t scared of him and immediately became friends with him.
    5. He is often misjudged for being foolish and annoying, but he's also very smart and helpful when needed.
    6. He is usually optimistic and likes to have fun. At the same time, his oddball nature is pretty comedic.
    7. He is also very nice and friendly to Shrek and Fiona.
    8. After finding out about Fiona's secret about transforming into an ogre at sunset, Donkey comforts her and convinces Fiona to tell her secret to Shrek.
    9. He reforms Dragon by turning her into his girlfriend by expressing his feelings to her.
    10. He also makes a good advisor about love to Shrek and helps him show his feelings for Fiona.
    11. He is very honest and means well.
    12. He gave us several memorable and funny quotes such as "I’m Makin' Waffles!"
    13. He has spawned several internet memes. Much to the point of being a memeable character.
    14. He is also surprisingly a good singer such as with "I’m a Believer" and "Living La Vida Loca".

    Bad Qualities

    1. He can be extremely clingy towards his best friend Shrek, whom he constantly yet unintentionally annoys.
    2. He often picks on his second-best friend, Puss in Boots.
    3. His origin is very debatable.
    4. He was woefully underused in Shrek The Third, where acts as little more than those two guys with Puss, when the movie easily could have expanded on that of him being a father to the dronkeys to give him some interesting development with Shrek regarding the latter's fears of being a father and illustrate their differences in parenting philosophies. However, his role as a father is almost completely forgotten barring a couple scenes with the dronkeys.
