In the alternate universe, Baba is the leader of the Witches working for Rumpelstiltskin. 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, 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, 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 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.
