Wicked Witch: "If I'm not the most powerful witch in the land, who is?"
Piper: "Take a wild guess."
Piper before vanquishing the Wicked Witch.[src]

The Wicked Witch was a powerful evil witch from the Fairy Tales. She desired to be the most powerful witch of all.



For her numerous crimes, she was trapped in her old magic mirror and placed under the care of the Keeper of the Fairy Tales. Unfortunately, the mirror fell off the wall and broke in 2002 and she was released. After strangling the Keeper, she trapped his apprentice in the mirror and asked him who the most powerful witch of all was. The apprentice replied that three were more powerful than her, the Charmed Ones.

Plan to Kill the Charmed Ones

She immediately began forming a plan to kill them, using the fairy tale relics. She originally sent The Woodsman from Snow White after them, but Piper blew him up.

Undaunted, she slipped Cinderella's glass slippers and the poison apple from Snow White into the manor. The slippers ended up on Phoebe and caused her to attend the ball by force. The midnight part of the spell ended up trapping Phoebe in a pumpkin. Paige later ate the apple and fell into a deep sleep.

She then sent The Big Bad Wolf from Little Red Riding Hood after Grams and Piper. It ate Grams and disguised itself as her before eating Piper as well. However, Piper managed to blow it up from the inside before it ate Leo. Piper then used the hood to get into Keeper's fortress, using her fairy-tale book as a portal.

Being Vanquished

"No! I'm melting! I'm melting! I'm melting!"
—The witch shrieks as she is being destroyed.[src]

The Magic Mirror told the Witch that she still wasn't the most powerful witch of all. When she asked who could possibly be more powerful, Piper appeared. She used an potion from the Book of Shadows to vanquish her. The wicked witch immediately melted and the effects of her spells were reversed.
