History

The Witch first appeared in The Great Yōkai War as a minion of Backbeard's in the war against the Japanese yōkai. She first battles and kills Ittan-Momen and then kidnaps Nezumi-Otoko. In the end, Kitarō kills her with his chanchanko. She would later represent France in the Yōkai Rally. Her car gets destroyed when Backbeard blinds her with his eye and she crashes into a rock. She is then disqualified for trying to finish the race on her broomstick. In The Witch's Doll, a witch comes to Japan to obtain life energy for the Magic King. She abducts several girls by selling them magic brooms and tries to turn them into witches with a potion, but she is soon thwarted by Kitarō. The Magic King punishes her failure by stripping her of her powers, turning her into a regular old woman. She is later seen selling hand-made straw dolls at a street stall.

In Shinigami, she teams up with Shinigami and poses as Kitarō's mother. She tricks him into drinking poison and tries to suck his blood, but Kitarō saw through the plan and fed her all of his poisoned blood, killing her (Kitarō's powers prevented himself from succumbing to the poison).

In Shinigami Tai-Senki, a witch appears as a minion of Satan. She leads the Western Yōkai Army with Dracula and Wolfman in an attack on Japan, but is repelled by Kitarō's army.

A witch appeared in Kitarō's World Obake Tour as one of the many yōkai gathered at Boss Dracula's villa and would appear throughout the series before being defeated along with the others in Duel Colosseum. In The Witch Circus, a group of 10 witches live as a traveling circus troupe, having escaped the European witch hunts of the 18th century. After capturing Kitarō in their cabin, he attacks them with ectoplasm, setting fire to the place. The troupe escapes in a hot air balloon, but Kitarō pops it with his Hair Needles and they fall to their death.

Another group of witches appears in Kitarō vs. Akuma-kun. These witches live to cause chaos and misery in the world, so when Ichirō Matsushita attacks the surface world they convince him to attack Kitarō and Japan in order to prevent the destruction of the world.

In Hakaba no Kitarō: Yōkai Lockheed, the Great Witch (大魔女, Dai-Majo) is revealed to be the actual mastermind behind the Lockheed bribery scandal. She captures Nezumi-Otoko and uses hypnosis to bring Kitarō to her side when he comes to the rescue. She orders him to melt Nezumi-Otoko with her newly-made Yōkai Solution, but Backbeard arrives and undoes the hypnotism. She tries to escape but Beard uses his dizzying glare on her, giving Kitarō the opportunity to melt her with the solution.

In The Uninvited Guest, a witch comes to Japan to infect human women with her Witch Fungus and turn them into witches, with the overall goal of creating a society of witches. She later battles with the Witch Disease Girl in a fight so severe they destroy each other. Another witch appears in Neko-Musume , running a thrift shop where Nezumi-Otoko buys the Book of Solutions.

A witch appears in Yuki-Hime-chan and GeGeGe no Kitarō as the Euorpean representative in the Yōkai Bout of True Strength. She eats Kelpie after transforming into a fish, but is then herself eaten by Viy when he transforms into an even bigger fish. She is freed when Mermaid chops Viy into pieces and later takes part in the flying competition. She comes in first but is disqualified once everyone realizes she actually died inside Viy and escaped as a spirit.

In the film GeGeGe no Kitarō: Yōkai Tokkyū! Maboroshi no Kisha, she cuts up Ittan-Momen with a pair of scissors and kidnaps Nezumi-Otoko. She is attracted to Nezumi-Otoko and tries to seduce him, but Nezumi-Otoko knocks her out with a fart he held in for a week.

In the fifth anime, she is the grandmother of Zambia, and her generation is said to have fought in the original Great Yōkai War 12 years prior. In episode #68, she reunites with the original Frankenstein, Dracula II and Wolfman and launches an all-out attack on Jigoku, where she blocks the way of the Kitarō Family.

Abilities

Her powers include casting spells and controlling her broomstick telekinetically.
