* Both versions of ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans'' feature the Stygian Witches. They are based on the Graeae from Greek mythology - and the name actually translates as 'old women', 'grey ones', 'grey witches' etc. They're a trio of elderly women who share one eye and one tooth between them. Perseus taking their eye convinces them to reveal some useful exposition. They appear to be far more bloodthirsty in the 2010 remake, as they're implied to be cannibals.



** Also spoofed with Willow being annoyed over witch stereotypes. There's also the PlayedForLaughs scene in "Once More With Feeling" when Xander says that evil witches might be responsible, only to shut up when Willow and Tara give him the hairy eyeball. And in "Family" where the Scoobies give Tara cliched presents like broomsticks and crystal balls. Willow however still gets moved by the cuteness of a little girl dressed as a wicked witch for Halloween.

* ''Series/KenanAndKel'' has an episode where Kenan suspects a new transfer student is actually a witch. She dresses all in black, has a black cat as a pet and makes a lot of homemade food. Chris outlines the ways in which to spot a witch - they apparently scratch themselves a lot, smell like fire and have green tongues. Through coincidence, the girl in question appears to demonstrate all those. Kenan then suspects her of casting a love spell on Kel and a bad luck spell on him. He does indeed get an ImagineSpot where she's dressed in the traditional black hat and cloak.

* The HalloweenEpisode of ''WesternAnimation/AsToldByGinger'' has [[BetaBitch Miranda]] causing a Halloween prank by defacing a statue outside the school - dressing it up like a wicked witch. She then frames Ginger for it so she can get the lead in the Halloween play - which coincidentally is a Salem Witch Trials story. Once Ginger discovers the truth, she sneaks on stage and the rest of the cast out Miranda as the culprit while they're performing the scene where her character is accused of witchcraft.

* VideoGame/{{Minecraft}} added witches as a second ranged hostile mob in the Pretty Scary Update (version 1.4). They attack by throwing negative status effect splash potions (slowness, poison, damage, & weakness) at the player and use positive status effect potions (healing, fire resistance, & swiftness) to heal/protect themselves.

* In ''Literature/AWrinkleInTime'', Mrs. Which takes on this form, with a pointed hat and a broom. While she's scary, she's a benevolent force, making her guise a pun rather than an indication of her nature.

** Gregory Maguire's novel ''Literature/{{Wicked}}'' is a revisionist look at the characters and the land of Oz. The story centers on a green girl named Elphaba who grows up to be the Wicked Witch of the West. Over the course of the book, Elphaba gradually acquires the stereotypical attributes of this trope (except the ugliness- while never ''pretty'' per se, she's repeatedly described as having strong features that could easily tip into the stereotype, including a [[CleopatraNose hooked nose]], but they come together strikingly on her).
