Alive (Shrek's Universe) Characters]]
Baba is the leader of the Witches working for Rumplestiltskin. At the mid-way point in the story she is seen along with Rumplestiltskin and a council of other witches. After many ideas of stopping Shrek from succeeding, (with a witch getting killed along the way), she is asked to hire a bounty hunter to stop Shrek from kissing Fiona.
Later she is seen fighting the ogre resistance, eventually getting knocked off her broom, hitting a wall, which subsequently falls on top of her. Once Shrek returns to his universe, Baba and the witches are good again. She is voiced by director Mike Mitchell.
- She is based on Baba Yaga, a witch character in Slavic folklore who kidnaps (and presumably eats) small children, and lives in a hut that stands on chicken legs.
- The word "baba" means hag in Japanese.
