* While Punie Tanaka of ''Manga/DaiMahouTouge'' definitely looks the part of a CuteWitch, her true nature is more along these lines.

* Deconstructed ''hard'' on [[Series/{{Once Upon a Time}}]
** Zelena, the actual literal Wicked Witch of the West, is not only one of the most beautiful female characters in the series, being a [[HotWitch]], she showcases quite a bit of cleavage throughout the series, despite her emotional fragility. Not only that, but she's also had one of the worst lives of all villains in the series, and a huge [[FreudianExcuse]] for her actions. Eventually, after a series of wicked deeds including [[spoiler: kidnapping, murder, and rape]] she, most unexpectedly finds happiness and begins her path towards redemption in [[spoiler: her baby daughter Robyn, named after her father Robin Hood, who wasn't her partner, but conceived the girl while Zelena was wearing a cloaking spell pretending to be his wife Marian]].
** Regina can be considered a subversion of this trope too, although she was established from her introductory scene as being very different from that.
** It's debatable if Cora is a subversion or plays this straight.
** The Black Fairy seems to be this, except for the looks. Only her backstory episode will tell.

* '''Habits''': This character tends to [[SolitarySorceress live alone in isolated environments]], especially [[LostWoods creepy forests]] or [[TheHedgeOfThorns thorny wastelands]] where it's easy to find your way in and never find your way back out. Sometimes her house is ObviouslyEvil, but it's just as likely she lives in a GingerbreadHouse or other attractive building, so as to lure in her favorite prey: children. Sometimes [[ChildEater she eats them]], or sometimes she [[PoweredByAForsakenChild uses them as fuel or ingredients for her magic]], but even if she does neither, most evil witches seem inexorably [[ChildHater destined to give kids the worse—and last—days of their lives]]. This character also loves to [[EvilLaugh cackle]] and she may say something along the lines of [[TheWizardOfOz "I'll get you my pretty!"]]. And while [[AllWitchesHaveCats witches in general love black cats]], the wicked ones also have a thing for creepy and evil animals like [[SpidersAreScary spiders]], [[SnakesAreSinister snakes]], [[CreepyCrows crows]], [[GoodAnimalsEvilAnimals toads or bats]].

* The polar opposite of Prairie Witch may be Mother Hubbard, also from was TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks, specifically ''Scoop Comics’’ in 1941. She had all the trappings of the Trope, being an old hag with a witch’s hat who flew on a broomstick and used cauldrons and crystal balls to use dark magic. However, she was [[DarkIsNotEvil on the good guy’s side]], fighting evil gnomes and trolls, and, like most heroes of the time, battling ThoseWackyNazis.
