What comes to mind when you hear the word "witch"? Is it a stooped, otherworldly figure, clad in black, hanging on the outskirts of society? Is it pungent herbs and bubbling potions? Is it dark secrets and magical lore? How about all of the above –– and more?

Now, when it comes to pop culture, understanding the concept of the witch has always been an exercise in duality. It's Glinda the Good Witch versus the Wicked Witch of the West. It's also the Disney character trope of the villainous evil witch –– an older, unmarried woman filled with rage and envy, forever thirsting to destroy the princess.

However, we have an enduring legacy of films to remind us that witches can be more than just good or evil. And that it's that very struggle between the two that has cemented them as the most iconic magical creatures of the night. That's why we've curated this list of our all-time favorite witches from pop culture: From Hermione Granger to the Sanderson sisters, these witches are unforgettable.
