"The last to go will see the first three go before her - and your little dog too." The Wicked Witch Of The West

Played By: Margaret Hamilton
Film: The Wizard Of Oz

Why She's On The List: After you're done being terrified of her throughout your formative years, The Wicked Witch Of The West is most fascinating upon re-examination when you're older (certainly in these post Wicked times) because she's so much maligned. Sure, she's a miserable old bag and the title gives her game away a bit, but she's not really done nothing wrong that we can prove, and seems quite justified in seeking revenge for the theft of her dead sister's ruby slippers. There's no excusing the flying monkeys, though.

Finest Hour: Meeting her demise at the wrong end of a bucket of water.
