** The Porter in the Patrick Stewart version. A mere comic relief character in the original play, here, not only is he just as creepy as the witches, he's also one of the murderers that kills Macduff's family.

* TheHecateSisters: The Weird Sisters clearly invoke this trope, though atypically they are all crones.

* TheWeirdSisters:
** Macbeth's descent into villainy is triggered by his encounter with three old and freakishly ugly witches who predict that he is destined to be king of Scotland, which prompts Macbeth to murder King Duncan. In act IV, Macbeth seeks out the witches again and receives three more prophecies which lull him into a false sense of security. While the witches manipulate Macbeth, their prophecies are truthful, just worded in ways apt to be misinterpreted by Macbeth, and they do not interfere with fate directly.
** There are also three more witches who form the company of Heccat (Hecate), and who do not have any speaking lines.

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: The 1983 BBC production made for television did not show Banquo's ghost, instead all we saw was an empty chair. Likewise, for the apparitions all we saw Macbeth's reaction making it all seem like Macbeth going insane. However, the prophecy involving Birnam Wood, no man of woman born and all that still comes true as the text dictates it must.
