* Mrs. Crone in ''WesternAnimation/GravedaleHigh'', she looks like the Wicked Witch of the West in modern clothes, although her wickedness is relative due to the BlueAndOrangeMorality of all the monster characters.

* Witches appear as enemies in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', but Hagravens fit the typical description better and pack deadly explosive fire magic. Hagravens are frequently seen leading covens of Witches, and most Witches ultimately plan to ''become'' Hagravens.

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

** 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]].
