* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: When revealed as a witch in "Easy-Bake Coven", Marge proudly declares she withered the village's livestock, soured their sheeps' milk, and made their shirts itchy.



* EatsBabies: Zigzagged in "Easy-Bake Coven". Played straight when, after eavesdropping on Maude Flanders fears about what witches do, Marge, Patty and Selma decide that eating kids sounds like a great way to get back at the villagers. Subverted when, upon reaching the Flanders' house, the witches are quite happy to accept a bribe of candy, cakes and other treats instead of eating Rod & Tod. Then double-subverted when, after finishing collecting their bribes from the Wiggums, Marge complains that she wishes they hadn't filled up on children before snagging all these goodies, belching before leading her sisters off into the sky.



* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Maude Flanders talking to her husband about how witches steal and eat children in "Easy-Bake Coven" gives Marge and her sisters the idea to do just that, as originally they were just going to [[PokeThePoodle steal peoples' shoes]].



* TheUnfavourite: Lisa in "Easy-Bake Coven"; Homer even goes so far as to [[OffingTheOffspring accuse her of witchcraft]] just because [[DisproportionateRetribution she told him he was egging their own house]].

Added DiffLines:

* AluminumChristmasTrees: In "Easy Bake Coven," Wiggum's statement that Marge will "fall to an honorable Christian death" if she isn't a witch is presented as a bit of InsaneTrollLogic, but this attitude actually ''is'' consistent with how real-life witch hunters reasoned on both sides of the Atlantic. As they saw it, it was safer to just kill anyone suspected of being a witch, since you'd be ridding the world of a demon if the accusation was true, and if they were innocent then they'd be sent to heaven as a martyr.
