"I am the rightful king of Far Far Away!"
-Prince Charming
Prince Charming is one of the Blind Bag characters in LEGO Dimensions 2: The Rise of Enoch, from the Shrek franchise.

Background

Prince Charming was born to The Fairy Godmother and his (Unnamed Father ) in The Kingdom of Far Far Away when he was a little boy he was betroved to Princess Fiona but she had a curse that made her an Ogre at night causing The Fairy Godmother too lock her in a tower guarded by a Dragon until her savior Prince Charming is all grown up.

Shrek

Although Charming doesn't appear physically in the film, he gains a brief mention, in which Princess Fiona reveals that she thought that she would be rescued by Prince Charming.

Shrek 2

In Shrek 2, he is the secondary antagonist and more of a comic relief character. Charming travels to the castle, where Fiona had been imprisoned before the first movie, only to discover that Shrek has already found her and married her and that Big Bad Wolf (without any explanation to how Big Bad Wolf got there in the first place) has taken to sleeping in her tower.

Charming's narration in this scene (as well as his conversation with Big Bad Wolf) reveals the most important aspects of the plot from the first film.

It is later revealed that Charming is, in fact, the son of the Fairy Godmother and that she wants her son to marry Fiona so that Charming can become king (similar to Lord Farquaad's intentions from the first film). As such (in contrast to his Fairy Tale namesake), this version of Prince Charming plays a more villainous role. Later, in the movie, Charming deceives Fiona into believing that he is Shrek, having been turned human by a "Happily Ever After" potion.

Nevertheless, Charming's foul attitude shines through the disguise, and Fiona realizes the truth before the end of the movie.

In Far Far Away Idol, Charming sang, "I'm Too Sexy", by Right Said Fred, although, during the song, Shrek and Fiona press a button, opening a trapdoor below him, due to his horrible singing.

Shrek the Third

He returns as the main antagonist. Charming is stuck working at a dinner theater, playing himself due to his name. However, despite being the hero in Charming's play (which appears to be a spoof on the classic fairy tale Rapunzel), the audience cheers when the "Shrek" Mascot comes onstage. Finally, a prop tower falls on Charming, but he escapes injury as the window passes around him. Charming leaves the theater upset and goes to his "dressing room": the back alley behind the bar, and starts sobbing at his misfortune. There, Charming vows to a picture of his mother that he will become the King of Far Far Away and kill Shrek to avenge her death.

Prince Charming organizes an army of villains in the Poison Apple, all upset that they haven't gotten their "Happily Ever After".

While Shrek, Donkey, and Puss are in search of the heir to the kingdom, Fiona holds off a coup d'état by Charming. Upon Shrek's return, he is captured by Charming.

Charming then places Shrek in the play, now being performed in a pavilion before the entire kingdom. Shrek begins to ruin it for Charming by making a fool of him. As Charming is about to kill Shrek onstage, Fiona and the others burst in, getting ready to fight the villains. However, before a confrontation ensues, Artie, the true king, convinces the villains to give up their evil ways, and they do so. However, Charming refuses and stabs Shrek, but Shrek is completely unharmed; Charming merely stuck the sword between Shrek's arm and side. Shrek then throws Charming before Dragon, who tips over the stone tower with her tail, which falls on Charming, defeating him. The crown then goes rolling and Artie puts his foot on it. It is debated whether he survived the ordeal, as some say the empty window of the stone tower landed on him in a similar style to the cardboard tower at the beginning, and moments earlier, Shrek tells him that he's going to have to keep on looking for his "Happily Ever After" which could be an indication that he wasn't intended to be killed. However, watching in slow motion shows that the part of the tower above the window was what landed on him, and he says "Mummy?" before it lands on him hinting that he will be reunited with his mother soon or he could have possibly survived. If he survived, he may have been arrested and sent to jail for his actions.

Shrek Forever After

Charming makes a cameo during the flashback montage of the end credits but he was supposed to be dead in the 3rd movie. However, it remains debatable whether or not he died since his fate is unclear as it isn't shown onscreen.

Scared Shrekless

Charming appears in the story "Bates Motel", told by Puss and Donkey. He first appears as a warm and friendly motel owner, inviting the two in, but is told by Donkey to have killed the Puss. Puss then replies that Charming killed the Donkey. Puss and Donkey argue over who is killed, then resort to just making each other look bad, Puss saying that before Charming could kill him, the Puss leaped to safety. Donkey then replies that "was exactly what Charming wanted the Puss to do". Charming laughed, then pulled a lever to make Puss fall through a trapdoor. The story ends as Donkey gets Pinocchio to spray Puss with water, making him run away, which Shrek later says is cheating.

Thriller Night

Charming appears in zombie form in the dance number and later is seen sitting in the audience of the movie theater when Shrek wakes up from his dream.
