Witches are characters in the Shrek universe. They use brooms to fly and have pointy hats. They are recognized by their evil cackle. Their appearance and weakness to water is based on the Wicked Witch of the West.
Witches are first seen among the fairy tale creatures Lord Farquaad's soldiers are rounding up. One of the soldiers breaks a witch's broom in half. They are seen again in Shrek's Swamp among the others banished there.
The witches appeared in Shrek 2 as customers at the Poison Apple.
The witches work for Rumpelstiltskin in his alternate world as his army and companions in his evil plans.
