* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': In the season 1 episode "The Witch", Amy mentions that before [[ParentalAbandonment he left]], her father would get in fights with her mother, calling her a witch. Amy ''thought'' that this was ParentheticalSwearing, but realized later on that it was [[ExactWords exactly what he meant.]]
* Inverted in ''Series/{{Angel}}''. As their {{Occult Detective}} agency is short of money, Cordelia tricks them into taking on a divorce case, claiming that her husband says his wife is a real witch. Clearly a slightly different word was said.

* ''Series/HouseOfAnubis'':
** Fabian does this twice. The first time is when he tells Patricia he stopped being her friend "when she became such a witch", and the second is when he tells Joy she's a "bully, and a witch," during a heated argument.
** Patricia seems to actually be on the receiving end of this a lot, to the point where Jerome tells her he thinks she's a ''literal'' witch when attempting to reject her while she's asking him out.

* This insult is reserved to [[Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia Jadis]] in the ''{{Franchise/Buildingverse}}'' (mostly ''Webcomic/GirlsNextDoor'' uses it but it's also acknowledged in ''Webcomic/{{Roommates}}'' ([[http://asherhyder.deviantart.com/art/Roommates-133-Forsaken-184751515 here]] it's the very first word spoken by her ex.)) sometimes even her son ([[Film/{{Labyrinth}} Jareth]]) gets "son of a witch" like [[http://pika-la-cynique.deviantart.com/art/GND135-Philosophisauce-203007921 here.]]

* Played with in ''Series/HowIMetYourMother''. "Witch" (at least [[NarrativeProfanityFilter the way Future Ted tells it]]) is indeed used as a swear -- just not as "bitch", which is used normally. It's used in place of [[CountryMatters a much harsher word]] instead.

** The line refers to [[ComicBook/TeenTitans the comics]], where Terra's JerkAss DeadpanSnarker comicbook version would refer to her 'friends' with horrible nicknames. "Witch" being a favorite for Raven, given her powers and habits. [[note]]Terra actually got the nickname from Cyborg, who affectionately calls Raven "Witch." After the Terra fiasco, Raven doesn't allow anybody else than Cyborg to call her "Witch"... presumably because Terra made it too painful.[[/note]]
