the big bad wolf, wicked witch
The Wicked Witch of the West and the Big Bad Wolf are examples of antagonists whose villainous acts make possible the challenges, conflicts, crises, dilemmas, and problems of a story.
A villain who will not back down is the kind of character of which the wicked witch and the big bad wolf are examples.Specifically, a villain is the main character's arch enemy. That villain intends and is committed to the main character's misery. The descriptions fit both the big bad wolf in "Little Red Riding Hood" and the Wicked Witch of the West in "The Wizard of Oz."
The big bad wolf and the wicked witch are archetypes of evil in the good vs evil type of story... the black and white bad guys with no redeeming qualities. Most bad guys in real life aren't like that, but in stories they usually cut away the humanity to make the story clearer and easier to interpret ethically.

Answer: In the movie there was Glenda, the good witch from the south. The Wicked Witch of the West was the famous one, while the wicked witch of the east was disposed of by Dorothy, whom the Munchkins initially revered as a powerful witch herself. In the book, Dorothy is originally met by the witch of the north, who was not as powerful as the East witch or she would have freed the Munchkins herself
The Wicked Witch of the West (or Almira Gulch, the nasty neighbor).
Yes, in The Wizard of Oz; yes and no, in Wicked. Author and Oz series originator Lyman Frank Baum [May 15, 1856-May 5, 1919] explained that the land of Oz had been taken over by four bad witches of the East, North, South, and West. Two of the bad witches had been replaced by the Good Witch of the North, and by Glinda the Good Witch of the South. Dorothy's house landed on, and killed, the Wicked Witch of the East. That left only the Wicked Witch of the West, whom Dorothy killed with a bucket of water. Gregory Maguire [b. June 9, 1954] is one of the writers who have made contributions to the Oz series since the death of the originator. His book Wicked, on which the play of the same name is based, creates a background of abusive interactions, and a life of emotional disappointments, that had their effect on the evolving character of the Wicked Witch of the West, whom he calls Elphaba Thropp.
Wicked is all about the explanation of why Glinda is the good witch and why Elphaba is the bad witch in the Wizard of Oz. Wicked is like a pre-quel to the Wizard of Oz.Similarities:about the same characterstakes place in Ozboth are musicalsDifferences:they are not at the same time (Wicked is what came before Wizard of Oz)
An actress named Margaret Hamilton played the Wicked Witch of the West, and an actress named Billie Burke played the role of Glinda the Good Witch of the North.
There were two witches who were presented as bad in the 1900 book edition, and the 1939 film version, of The Wizard of Oz. One was called the Wicked Witch of the East. She died when Dorothy Gale's house landed on top of her. The other was called the Wicked Witch of the West. And she died when Dorothy threw a bucket of water on her, and thereby melted her to nothingness. The two witches remained nameless until three-quarters of a century after the book edition, and 36 years after the film version, of The Wizard of Oz. For Gregory Maguire [b. June 9, 1954] wrote Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, in 1995. Readers of the book, and viewers of the 2003 stage version by Stephen Lawrence Schwartz [b. March 6, 1948], have learned that the Wicked Witch of the East was named Nessarose Thropp, and that her sister Wicked Witch of the West was named Elphaba Thropp.
It's kind of the point of the story/play that she isn't actually "bad". In fact, it's arguable that the "Good" witch, Glinda, is the true villain. However, assuming you're talking about the green one ... her given name is Elphaba.

No, neither one of the Wicked Witches appears to be friends with either one of the Good Witches in the original 1900 book edition of "The Wizard of Oz."In the original book, the two bad witches are the Wicked Witches of the East and of the West. The two good witches are the Good Witch of the North and Glinda the Good of the South.In the beloved 1939 movie version of "The Wizard of Oz" likewise does it seem unlikely that the two bad witches may be considered friends of the one good witch, Glinda the Good of the North.But in "Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West," a subsequently published prequel by Gregory Maguire (b. June 9, 1954), the two bad witches are given the names of Nessarose of the East and Elphaba of the West. Elphaba and Glinda the Good start out on bad terms, but end up fast friends. Given the roller coater start to their interaction, it is entirely believable that the two go from enmity to friendship to back to enmity.
they werent. the east and west witches where close sisters in the movie and where both bad. (east was crushed my house.) the north witch, however, was the one disliked by the west witch. why? we dont know... the movie doesnt elaborate on that.
a bad witch will kill you if they have to but a good witch trys to help you
No he is not. (Even though I have never heart of him). According to the dictionary a witch is "A being (usually female) imagined to have special powers derived from the devil". Satan is powerful and can at times infuence the mind of some wicked person to carry on doing wicked things. No one, witch or not can force a person to do something against their will, whether it is good or bad. A weak willed person may be influenced into doing something, that however is not by witch craft.
