Evil does strange things to people. It can be pleasurable , delicious , or addictive , it can make you more badass , and it even makes you more sexy. Even though Beauty Equals Goodness , some villains are just gorgeous. They ooze sex appeal and carnality in a way that represents Lust as well as the lust for power that evil promises to its prospective followers.
They tend to have looser sexual morals. They are as handsome as they are arrogant much to the heroes' annoyance. They hide their demonic soul behind the face of an angel. And they're not afraid to use their beauty, wiles, and sex appeal to seduce the hero and carry out their nefarious plans. Okay, maybe that last Pot Hole went too far.
Their outfits tend to show more skin and have more leather, fetishist hangups, lace, on occasion, or even gorgeous and functional Femme Fatalons. Hey, what's the point of being evil if you can't do it with class?
Or failing that, overdo it with style? A hero temporarily tempted by evil tends to suddenly wear skimpier clothes and be more sexually assertive. Many fans will find them sexier this way and perhaps dread the return to prudery that will accompany their return to goodness. If the Love Interest is the initial Ms. Fanservice , then The Baroness or The Vamp has to take it to the next level, sometimes immediately. Often used as a storytelling device; what better way to show how seductive evil is than by making evil literally seductive.
When paired with Beauty Equals Goodness , this is reconciled by making the good characters' beauty more genuine and the evil characters' appearance more focused on inspiring lust, separating "pure" beauty from sex appeal.
An opportunity for Fanservice of all kinds. Also sets the stage for Unfortunate Implications , frequently invoking various Double Standards attached to the sexuality and the "goodness" of that sexuality of a character depending on their gender. This is mostly applied to female villains, although attractive male villains are becoming more common, especially in series geared toward a female audience.
This character's almost guaranteed to garner loads of entirely undeserved sympathy from fans, but is so ingrained in certain cultures that it's not going away any time soon. In American film specifically this is probably related to the period way back when when only evil was allowed to be sexy — since Sex Sells regardless. The following tropes all relate to this concept; please add examples there rather than here when possible:. Compare with Beauty Equals Goodness. Often a consequence of Power Is Sexy , since Mooks aren't that attractive.
Part of the appeal of Forbidden Fruit. Both a cause of and a result of Jerkass Dissonance. You need to login to do this. Get Known if you don't have an account. Please don't list it on a work's trope example list. Esdeath is an evil person who has the philosophy of The Social Darwinist , is very brutal when it comes to fighting her enemies, has no empathy towards those she deems as weak, loves torturing innocent people and considers it to be a hobby.
She is one of the reasons why the Empire is so corrupt because she supports the evil Prime Minister, which provides her an endless opportunities to slaughter any rebels she comes across. Despite this, many fans see her as the poster girl of this trope, mainly because fans are attracted by her beauty and design wearing a fanservice army-like costume and how huge her boobs are and several factors, such as her tenacious demeanor, her great powers, some of her Pet the Dog moments regardless of how contrived they are and her loyalty towards her subordinates contribute to the attractiveness of the character herself.
Angel Blade is an erotic anime, so evil will be sexy. Mistress Nailkaizer is especially popular, but you've also got Chloe, Elaine , and the Black Widow from the sequel. The grand prize, however, is won by the Dark Mother , by far the sexiest thing to ever come out of the Evil Overlord trope and the one bossing around and doing other things to the above four.
Claire Stanfield from Baccano! Ax-Crazy Psycho for Hire with a He averts this trope by being a very nice, likeable, though rather goofy guy when he's not conducting business.
Mitsuko Souma and Kazuo Kiriyama, the two main villains of Battle Royale are described as being the two best-looking students in the class. He also has no compunctions for the actions that he caused. Despite this, people still see him as attractive nonetheless.
Rule of thumb in Bleach is, if you're a villain who's not gonky , you're either this or a badass, sometimes both , with copious amounts of skin showing being a must. Here's a small list: Packing a six pack on top of exposing most of his chest and torso? Badass Baritone and sexy blue hair?
The most stripperiffic resurreccion getup possible? Busty chest, curvy figure, attractive voice when she's speaking calmly , and whip-toting , with a dominating personality. Sosuke Aizen, post-reveal as the Big Bad ; ain't a single fan who hasn't commented on his new sexy hairdo. Bambietta Basterbine, just Bambietta Basterbine: She's even aware of this as she screws a random soldier and kills him once she bangs him silly.
Candice Catnipp doesn't trail behind Bambietta, either; her Hot-Blooded attitude when fighting, coupled with the shameless closeups of her skimpy uniform, makes it all the more eye-candy. Ironically enough, Gin has plenty of fangirls, even though Kubo designed him to be creepy and offputting. Although neither of them is the real main antagonist. Aion from Chrono Crusade plays with this, particularly in the anime adaptation, where he goes from being attractive and charismatic to willing to sleep with Anything That Moves.
However, this trope is also used in the anime to make him creepy and squicky — he not only happily seduces those that are willing to sleep with them, but is implied to attempt to rape many of the ones that aren't willing and may have even succeeded in one case.
Light Yagami from Death Note is much hotter when evil than when innocent. Date A Live has its entire premise revolving around the main character trying to tame attractive supernatural entities by dating them, but while most of them start out as antagonistic, they're usually not fully evil. However, the introduction of Deus Ex Machina Industries plays this completely straight, as Big Bad Isaac Westcott, his fanatically loyal Dragon Ellen Mira Mathers, and heck all the female operatives in general, are absolutely villainous and quite easy on the eyes.
Oddly averted in their comically round but nonetheless badass leader, The Millennium Earl, but as of chapter he plays this straight with his human form. Indeed, LadyDevimon was probably thrown into Digimon Adventure as a Monster of the Week just to invoke this, being that she promptly gets into a Cat Fight with Angewomon.
Also of note is Archnemon at least in human form; her spider form, not so much , and Ranamon until she slide-evolves into Calmaramon. The ladies get Beelzemon , who's very blonde , has a husky voice, and wears spiky armor, tight leather pants , and a very clingy shirt that may as well have been spray-painted onto his very defined abs. The "evil" part is subverted, however.
In-universe, General Blue and Zarbon , who Bulma crushes on. Though Zarbon loses this when he transforms. Not only does he have Son Goku's body, he has it in slimmer proportions and his Creepy Monotone voice sounds sexy for some people. In the interview for the fouth volume for the manga, Toyotaro does talk about Toei Animation receiving letters from many people finding Black's voice sexy.
A lot of fangirls see Zamasu like this. He is drawn with a pretty face and a tall slender figure. Many of the humanoid Eclipse Celestial Spirits are getting this reaction, too. Of course, considering that the heroes are sexy as well, this shouldn't be surprising. She isn't lustful, she's a lust item herself. Greed, who is introduced with two attractive women hanging on either arm. Sloth in the the anime version is just as good-looking as Lust, though admittedly she doesn't ooze sex appeal.
However, its raspy voice , many Kick the Dog moments, association with horrific shapeshifting, and its pitiful, fetus-like true form makes Envy too frightening and disturbing to be viewed sexually. Guess which side she's on. Daisuke, one of the show's two heroes, is fairly decent-looking in ways that don't really inspire lust, being a rather pretty young man with clothes that cover most of his body.
By contrast, his enemy Clair Leonelli wears tight-fitting leather pants and a slinky purple shirt that opens all the way down his chest. There's also Daisuke's Knight Templar Big Brother Shun , who's much prettier than Daisuke himself and seems to be an object of desire for most women he encounters.
He even shares a voice actor with Zagato above! Alucard from Hellsing essentially orgasms from ripping people into pieces and has consumed approximately four million souls over his centuries of existence, and still manages to be the sexiest character on the show, taking Creepy Awesome into fetish territory. Alucard may be more amoral than downright heartless because he does remain loyal to the Hellsing Organization.
He took his shirt off during his grand battle scene. Sure he may be a very handsome man on the outside, but on the inside, he's actually ruthless and short-tempered. Quite a few manga artists like to play up how sexy Miyo Takano of Higurashi: When They Cry is, though she's already quite sexy once you get past her standard expression.
Dakki, the Big Bad of Soul Hunter. She's well-formed, and often wears revealing outfits. Her magic weapon even gets a power boost when she strikes sexy poses.
Inazuma Eleven Most of the antagonistic teams in season 2 wear skin-tight uniforms and some of them, like Gran and Ulvida definitely count. One notable example is Dark Emperor Kazemaru , whose Evil Makeover made him even more attractive for the fangirls. He's named after the goddess of beauty after all. Kagura and Yura of the Demon Hair are also pretty sexy in their own right. While not strictly speaking evil, Sesshomaru definitely counts.
Naraku in his Kagewaki guise, at least when his body is not made up of a bunch of demon parts. Many of his subordinates follow him just because of his charisma and beauty. Many of them of both genders outright wanna jump his bones , and some succeed Vanilla Ice and Enrico Pucci.
Redemption The Bletchley Circle: The Cool Kids New! The Detour The Deuce Ongoing! The Disappearance of Crystal Rogers New! The Five The Flash Ongoing! The Glades The Goldbergs Ongoing! The Good Cop New! The Good Doctor Ongoing!
The Real Housewives of Dallas Ongoing! Top of the Lake Tosh. Touch Training Day Transparent Transporter: When Calls the Heart Whistleblower New! US Who Is America? Whose Line is it Anyway? On the outside, they look beautiful, but under their flesh-masks they are hideous, slimy bat-things.
The Black Court, on the other hand, avert this trope entirely; they are desiccated corpses, complete with dried eyeballs, missing limbs and rotting hair. The Fairy Queens , though they are less evil and more on a different scale of morality altogether, the fae that care to look human at all tend to look like very attractive ones, and many are effectively minor gods of fertility or nature with all the sensuality and virility that implies. The Draka seem to spend as much time screwing their slaves and each other, in every permutation imaginable as they do fighting and conquering.
The books also include lavish descriptions of their well-muscled warrior physiques especially the bisexual female ones. Andrea, from The Zone World War III novels by James Rouch, uses her incredible beauty and sociopathic skills of manipulation to get the other male soldiers to teach her new means of killing.
Major Revell, the commanding officer of the unit, is obsessed with her, even though he knows full well she's a crazed killer. The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde , in which the protagonist's wrongdoing causes his portrait to age and become ugly, while he remains young and beautiful.
Until the end, that is. The White Witch from The Chronicles of Narnia is described as being the most beautiful woman ever by many men in the books, despite having brought about the complete depopulation of her home world and a hundred years of perpetual winter to Narnia.
In Kire are the hulders really beautiful pretty much like the White Witch from Narnia above, and could be covered in blood but still be found attractive, they can make friends fight over them just for fun, but apparently this doesn't work on women. Although it's really ambiguous wherever they're really evil or not. But somehow is the hulder that Erik's mother killed still alive and still wants to take Kire with her Tom Riddle was originally very attractive, and used his looks to his advantage.
However, even before his resurrection, experiments with dark magic ruined his looks to the extent that people can't even recognize him anymore. Bellatrix Lestrange also used to be attractive, before she went to Azkaban. After breaking out she still retains some of her looks, which is saying something, because spending years around Dementors is not good for your looks.
Then there's Grindelwald when he was young. Rowling makes sure everyone gets a good description, even the dark lords. The Sword of Truth series had the Mord-Sith, a cadre of gorgeous, leather-clad women When he is deposed, they become Dark Is Not Evil retainers to the heroes. It can be said that Randall Flagg is an example of this trope, in his control of Nadine. She would have gone to the good side in Boulder, she says, were she not madly lusting after Flagg. Nadine can also be an example, in that it is difficult for men to resist her, and she uses sex to keep Harold evil.
The Belgariad gave us Queen Salmissra of Nyissa. Well, the most recent Queen of Nyissa to bear the name, at any rate. Swathed in a diaphonous gown and jewelry reminiscent of a belly-dancer's outfit and portrayed as highly sexually active as well as being prepared to sell Belgarion out to Torak. Laharl's aunt Yasurl from the Disgaea Novels. She is evil to the bone and abused Laharl then he was in her care, this affected him so much that he has had vile allergic reactions to sexy women ever since.
Toyed with in Animorphs in the person of Taylor , a deeply disturbed girl who allowed a Sociopathic Soldier of a Yeerk to take over her mind in exchange for a new face. She's described as being very attractive in the physical sense, but is so artificial and emotionally screwed up that no one cares.
Pointed out by Tobias when he morphs Taylor and receives far more positive male attention than the real thing: But I was alive. I had a sense of humour. Taylor had a coldness that enclosed her like a shield. The kid could see this. Sheriff Buck of American Gothic falls under this trope, and his schoolteacher girlfriend Selena Coombs embodies it. Angelus, Spike, Darla and Drusilla, who back in the day were the sexiest and most murderous group of vampires in history.
Faith is the Evil Counterpart to Buffy and - since Evil is Sexy - she wears skimpier clothes and is unabashedly promiscuous and seductive. In season 4, Willow lampshadingly describes Faith as a "cleavagey slut-bomb walking around going, 'Oh, check me out, I'm wicked cool, I'm 5 by 5.
Puppyslave on a leash? And I think I'm kinda gay. Also an Intercourse with You. Fergie's psychopath stripper character in the music video for "Beautiful Dangerous", with Slash. Not only does she succeed in drugging him, tying him to a bed, and all that junk, but also kills him at the end with her knife! Even prophets forgive his crooked ways. The wizard rock band Voldemort released an album titled Evil is Sexy. A few of the so-called "sinners" in the Seven Deadly Sin series in the Evillious Chronicles and plenty of characters outside of that particular series.
The ultimate example, however, would be Duke Venomania. Bally 's Mata Hari pinball, which depicts the title character as a seductress and German spy. On International Wrestling and in the Dominican Wrestling Federation, this role was most associated with Amarillis "Pour Water", a manager associated with " The Evil Genius " Lightning Hernandez that was none the less easy on the eyes. Rick Rude wants all you guys scrolling down this page to be quiet while he takes off his shirt and shows all the lady tropers what a real man looks like!
Despite being the most despised woman in Ring of Honor , fans still voted Simply Luscious to be the hottest woman in the promotion over the otherwise much more preferred Alexis Laree. When the original members reformed, the crowd booed. When they promised to strip, the crowd was very supportive naturally they did not keep this promise, making them booed more.
Not so much the case with the Angelina Love and Winter pairing, who sort of worked " face " on occasion but didn't get any pops for anything "sexy" they did, up to including kissing each other They also tend to be big breasted and eager to show it off, as well as adverse to wearing pants. Cody Rhodes , despite having few redeeming qualities he was a decent competitor who loved his dad This went to Cody's head and he started giving out grooming tips to "the WWE universe" about how they too, could be "dashing".
Ironically, when this period came to and end and Cody reemerged as a supposedly disfigured, undashing man upset that he was now as ugly as everyone else, he was also the closest thing on television to the Beautiful People's Spear Counterpart.
For awhile, this was true of about half of the women in the Pro Wrestling Syndicate, but that's to be expected when you name your women's show BLOW. The first, and fan supported, PWS Bombshells Champion Missy Sampson lost her title to the less supported La Rosa Negra in a crooked finish because it was believed a better looking champion would be better for business, even if her looks were about the only thing anyone liked about her.
Toni Storm was once so put off by Kimura's "dancing" in particular that she forcibly tagged out of a match without even attempting to engage Kimura. The Devil Princess of Baator herself, Glasya. Fierna, the nominal ruler of the fourth layer. She's an embodiment of Lust , after all.
Maybe mariliths too, if you're into that sort of thing. They're demons that have the upper bodies of beautiful women with six arms , are usually scantily dressed at best and serpentine lower bodies. Of course, they usually have swords in each of their six arms and will probably try to kill you before trying to tempt you. If one does try to tempt you, trust me, it would likely be a Fate Worse than Death.
Warhammer and Warhammer 40, Slaanesh has this reputation, being the God of Evil representing sensations in all its forms.
Unfortunately while a cultist might start out as this, their senses are quickly burned out by so much excess that they have to go to even greater extremes to feel anything at all, to the point that eyes for nipples seem a reasonable option. On the other hand, one of Slaanesh's many "gifts" make its followers appear sexy or lovable to others, so much so that it can cause an enemy to fall in love with them and refuse to harm them, become so attracted to them that they won't run away even when they're being massacred, and force them to go wherever the psyker wants, even through minefields.
The Dark Eldar of 40K wear either skin-tight leather or barely anything at all, especially for Lelith Hesperax and the entire Wych sect , and are the fetish faction. This makes sense given that their ancestors created Slaanesh by essentially orgying so hard they tore open a hole in reality.
The original Warhammer Dark Elves play this trope much straighter; there seems to be a correlation between how powerful a Sorceress is and how much skin she shows. And the Death Hags look about as far from the usual use of the word 'hag' as it is possible to get, provided they don't skip on their regular Blood Bath. The Vampire Counts have their own version of this, and the original vampire bloodline is entirely composed of this in the "present day". Lahmian vampires are specifically known to use their seduction to enslave entire populations rather than using outright force, and all Lahmian vampires are female.
The Abyssal Exalted have a choice: One's not much better than the other, really. Oh, and Manosque Cyan, who's hard to describe in these terms but is damn good-looking anyway. The current poster girl of this trope in Magic: The Gathering is Liliana Vess. Referred to almost by name in the Toxic Avenger musical, in the song "Evil is Hot", where the mayor seduces a scientist into telling her the titular monster's weakness.
Bare-chested Samuel Ramey , anyone? As does Baron Scarpia in Tosca. The titular character of Don Giovanni has managed to seduce over a thousand women. She also sings "Fat-Bottomed Girls". The Phantom in Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera is very sexy until you take his mask off Though she starts out ugly, after a spell at the end of the first act, the witch in Into the Woods gets damn hot.
And usually gets a costume during the second act that shows this off plenty. Wears skintight leather clothing has a white costume and a black one, but the black one shows up the most , typically portrayed by either pretty androgynous actors e. Mark Seibert, second Vienna revival and tour. Seduces both the titular character and her son to commit suicide.
The Mad Hatter from the Broadway musical Wonderland absolutely fits the bill. Played by the stunning 5'11" Kate Shindle, Hatter wears a lot of black and red, including a corset, and walks with an elegance and grace that is almost hypnotizing.
Every second she's on stage, she has your complete attention. She's charismatic and funny, so much so that you almost root for her to win by the end. While most of the game takes place in and we see the older version of him, his younger self in the flashback levels was damn good looking. Add in Kamar de los Reyes sexy Spanish accent and his semi-shirtless scene in "Suffer With Me", and you get quite the handsome villain.
Tales of Graces has Richard when he gets taken over by Lambda ending up a winged and shirtless sexy demon. Zelos makes a career out of being a Lovable Sex Maniac , and he's the other party member guaranteed to betray you. In this case it's up to the player to decide whether it's a subversion, because Zelos can redeem himself and rejoin your party, or you can be forced to kill him.
Just listen to how he addresses Judith during the boss battle, for one. On the more "Morally Ambiguous is Sexy" side, compare fully-armored Flynn with Yuri, who shows quite a bit more skin and occasionally hits on the girls in his party for the lulz.
Deus Machina Demonbane takes over half the stuff from the Cthulhu Mythos and gives it this treatment if it was a canonical asshole or at least antagonistic to humanity to begin with in the source. That said, the queen of this trope is Nya ralathotep. For bonus points, she has some creepy sexy going on during her most dickish moments. Darkstalkers has Demitri and Jedah , although the former flips between being a villain and a very dark antihero while the latter is a well-intentioned Dark Messiah.
Marilith from the original Final Fantasy. Princess Hilda from Final Fantasy II becomes much, much sexier after she is replaced by the Lamia Queen She even attempts to seduce the protagonist before attacking him. The Emperor, Sephiroth, and Ultimecia in addition to the above characters listed are deliciously sexy.
Ultimecia from Final Fantasy VIII is the classic Lady in Red with no sense of modesty a dress with a neckline at the crotch, and a slit that goes up to the crotch , a wild accent that veers close to Russian , white hair, wings , and Facial Markings. Also the apparent Big Bad for the first two discs, Edea Kramer.
It's no wonder why Steiner falls in love with her later on. Also Lani, which Zidane points out, and Kuja. Final Fantasy X has Yunalesca, clad in nothing more than a metal bikini and thong that covers little of her curvy figure, Shiva possessed by Yu Yevon in the final battle, and Seymour, if one can look past his ridiculous hair.
Boobs of Steel accompanied by a nice boob window , Meganekko , and Rapunzel Hair. In Birth by Sleep Ventus , who was a bit scrawny, gains muscles and a sexy bodysuit the moment Vanitas took over his heart. I-No from Guilty Gear. Shows it off at every opportunity? Has a voice set jam-packed with innuendo and double entendres? Witnessed the slaughter of a village for fun in one of the Drama CDs?
Wants to torture Dizzy by tearing her wings off and cooking them? Tira definitely belongs here due to her killer figure, revealing wardrobe , sexy smile , and enough fetishes for everyone to be happy. Ivy isn't evil by choice , but is still a cruel and merciless Dominatrix who flashes a lot of skin. Sonia, one of the main antagonists in Fire Emblem 7 , wears nothing but a black corset, an elongated loincloth thing that goes to her knees, and stiletto heels.
Oddly enough, she's not very popular, probably due to her tendency to Kick the Dog. The dog being her own adopted daughter. Also Limstella, Nergals most powerful creation, who is even hotter than Sonia. Only she doesn't act very "Evil" because she's emotionless. SHODAN only appears as a face on a screen, but her infamous voice more than makes up for it, best described as creepily sexy. La Pucelle plays with this a bit. When a character turns out to have a Superpowered Evil Side , it manifests at night, implying that she's going out in her sleepwear Millenia from Grandia II.
She's not evil she is a party member, after all , and not exactly heroic she is an aspect of an Evil Overlord , after all , but man, is she hot or what? In fact, this is specifically brought up when she makes her debut appearance; Father Carius: Evil takes forms far from foul If you are the Anthropomorphic Personification of Lust then you are automatically a candidate for this trope.
Drusilla, the succubus from Pibgorn , somehow manages to be a lot more seductive than the title character even though they are both attractive, slender women walking around flying around? Lucrezia Mongfish in Girl Genius , at least as she's played in the Heterodyne Shows and seen in flashbacks, dressed much more provocatively when she was evil than after she married William Heterodyne.
After she possesses her daughter's body as The Other, the Big Bad of the series, one of the first things she does is strip to her underwear to admire the body she now controls and begin flirting with the son of her most ardent and now dead supporter with no shame whatsoever.
Sandra on the Rocks: Judging from these posts on the comic's official forum, the readers certainly think so when it comes to Eva. Because despite being Zoe's evil arch-rival, there's no denying that Eva's drop-dead gorgeous and has a bangin' bod , they'd like to bang.
Las Lindas has Alejandra Coldthorn , who is closer to The Rival , than a real villain, but still serves as an antagonist for her mean streak and some of her less than ethical actions, although this has been subverted as of recently. It even lampshades it: Because Evil is Hot. Also a really good example of Theiss Titillation Theory in action. Satan's Daughter, the Antichrist, and the main characters' landlady. The Magdelines use this as a weapon. Nodwick hung a lampshade on an aversion, with Countess Repugsive.
Evil girls are only taken seriously when they're hot. When I was alive, I didn't look much better than I do now. This explains the "nice personality" you were famous for. The perks are fantastic!
Better hair — bigger bust — bitchin' outfits — plus I get my own minions! That Guy with the Glasses: Black Lantern Spoony and Dr. The Nostalgia Critic seems to jump from Woobies Are Sexy when he's suffering and this trope when he succeeds at being sinister. The Nostalgia Chick is hot when she shows her sociopathic side. Dark Nella wears leather and eyeliner, has demonic powers, and is really pissed off at the Chick for abusing her.
Tease is a horrible, ammoral person who creates woobie sexbots for funsies. This just makes her all the hotter. The Spoony One somehow becomes about 10 times sexier when he's cheerfully raping his fellow reviewers in the "Spooning with Spoony" videos.
Add Judas Liz and Dark Paw to the list. The Other Guy gets another go with Carl Copenhagen in Demo Reel , as he's intimidating, very good with weapons and has a sexy German accent. The Big Bad from Suburban Knights is considered this both in and out of universe. Even Doug gets his turn in the advertisement for the third DVD, playing with a knife while shirtless and torturing a guy he's kidnapped. Subverted by Devil Boner, who looks the part in leather and eyeliner, and was certainly always considered attractive, but he only got an outpouring of love after his feminist rant to the meninists in Mad Max: The book was used in the American colonies as early as May , when Margaret Jones was executed for witchcraft in Connecticut ,  the first of 17 people executed for witchcraft in the Colonies from to Witch-hunts in North America began about the time of Hopkins.
In , forty-six years before the notorious Salem witch trials , Springfield, Massachusetts experienced America's first accusations of witchcraft when husband and wife Hugh and Mary Parsons accused each other of witchcraft. In America's first witch trial, Hugh was found innocent, while Mary was acquitted of witchcraft but she was still sentenced to be hanged as punishment for the death of her child.
She died in prison. Once a case was brought to trial, the prosecutors hunted for accomplices. Magic was not considered to be wrong because it failed, but because it worked effectively for the wrong reasons. Witchcraft was a normal part of everyday life. Witches were often called for, along with religious ministers, to help the ill or to deliver a baby. They held positions of spiritual power in their communities.
When something went wrong, no one questioned the ministers or the power of the witchcraft. Instead, they questioned whether the witch intended to inflict harm or not.
Current scholarly estimates of the number of people executed for witchcraft vary between about 40, and , Modern scholarly estimates place the total number of executions for witchcraft in the year period of European witch-hunts in the five digits, mostly at roughly between 40, and 50, see table below for details ,  but some estimate there were , to , executed for witchcraft, and others estimated 1,, or more.
On the basis of this evidence, Scarre and Callow asserted that the "typical witch was the wife or widow of an agricultural labourer or small tenant farmer, and she was well known for a quarrelsome and aggressive nature. In England and Scotland between and , a series of Witchcraft Acts enshrined into law the punishment often with death, sometimes with incarceration of individuals practising or claiming to practice witchcraft and magic.
Kate Nevin was hunted for three weeks and eventually suffered death by Faggot and Fire at Monzie in Perthshire , Scotland in The final Act of led to prosecution for fraud rather than witchcraft since it was no longer believed that the individuals had actual supernatural powers or traffic with Satan.
The Act continued to be used until the s to prosecute individuals such as spiritualists and gypsies. The act was finally repealed in The last execution of a witch in the Dutch Republic was probably in In France the last person to be executed for witchcraft was Louis Debaraz in Both women have been identified as the last women executed for witchcraft in Europe, but in both cases, the official verdict did not mention witchcraft, as this had ceased to be recognized as a criminal offense.
There is no documented evidence of witch hunting in India before The earliest evidence of witch-hunts in India can be found in the Santhal witch trials in The Chhotanagpur region was majorly populated by an adivasi population called the Santhals.
The existence of witches was a belief central to the Santhals. Witches were feared and were supposed to be engaged in anti-social activities.
They were also supposed to have the power to kill people by feeding on their entrails, and causing fevers in cattle among other evils. Therefore, according to the adivasi population the cure to their disease and sickness was the elimination of these witches who were seen as the cause. The practice of witch hunt among Santhals was more brutal than that in Europe. Unlike Europe where witches were strangulated before being burnt, the santhals forced them "..
The British banned the persecution of witches in Gujarat, Rajasthan and Chhotanagpur in the s—s. They saw the practise as barbaric and tried to dismantle the belief in witchcraft by providing medical facilities. However, they undermined the extent to which the belief was socially embedded.
Despite the ban, very few cases were reported as witch-hunting was not seen as a crime. The Santhals believed that the ban in fact allowed the witches to flourish. Thus, the effect of the ban was contrary to what the British had intended. During —58, there was a surge in witch hunting. This can be viewed as a mode of resistance to the British rule as part of the larger revolt of Witch hunts still occur today in societies where belief in magic is prevalent. In most cases, these are instances of lynching and burnings, reported with some regularity from much of Sub-Saharan Africa , from rural North India and from Papua New Guinea.
In addition, there are some countries that have legislation against the practice of sorcery. The only country where witchcraft remains legally punishable by death is Saudi Arabia. Most of the accused are women and children but can also be elderly people or marginalised groups of the community such as albinos and the HIV -infected. The leader of the witch hunt, often a prominent figure in the community or a "witch doctor", may also gain economic benefit by charging for an exorcism or by selling body parts of the murdered.
In many societies of Sub-Saharan Africa , the fear of witches drives periodic witch-hunts during which specialist witch-finders identify suspects, with death by mob often the result.
Witch-hunts against children were reported by the BBC in in the Congo  and in Tanzania, where the government responded to attacks on women accused of being witches for having red eyes. Richards , in the journal Africa , relates in an instance when a new wave of witchfinders, the Bamucapi , appeared in the villages of the Bemba people of Zambia.
When the villagers arrived they would view them all in a mirror , and claimed they could identify witches with this method. These witches would then have to "yield up his horns"; i. The bamucapi then made all drink a potion called kucapa which would cause a witch to die and swell up if he ever tried such things again.
