Baba is the head of the witches and the presumed Queen working alongside Rumpelstiltskin in his alternate world.

Shrek Forever After

Since she is a witch, it assumed that she lives in the Crone's Nest trailer park with Rumpelstiltskin and other witches.

In the alternate universe, Baba is the leader of the Witches working for Rumplestiltskin. At the mid-way point in the story she is seen along with Rumpelstiltskin and a council of his inner circle. After many ideas of stopping Shrek from succeeding in kissing Fiona, (with a witch getting killed along the way), she is asked to hire a professional bounty hunter to stop the ogre.

She is later ordered to ready Rumpel's makeup for his announcement to the citizens of Far Far Away about the "Deal of a Lifetime".

At the end of the film, she is seen fighting the ogre resistance, eventually getting knocked off her broom and hitting a wall, which subsequently falls on top of her. Once Shrek returns to his universe, she is alive once again and no longer villainous.


  • She is voiced by director Mike Mitchell.
  • Her name is based on Baba Yaga, a witch 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.
