Witches are a race of characters in the Shrek universe. They use brooms to fly, wear pointy hats, and 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 at Shrek's swamp among the others banished there.
