    It's officially witch season. Meaning it's time to dig out your pointed hat and the Teen Witch Handbook you got in high school after you discovered The Craft. The best Halloween movies are full of great sorceresses. And supernatural TV has no shortage of women cooking up spells.

    But which witches are truly kick-ass? Sabrina and Teen Witch are cute, but could they get far in an intense magical battle? Probably not. This list is all about the witches who you'd want on your side in an epic struggle against the dark side. Or, in some cases, who might convince you to join the dark side. Either way, they've got grade-A wizardy and stellar outfits in spades.

    Because she can fit in some karaoke, even on a busy night of sucking the life out of children.

    Bonnie, The Vampire Diaries (2009-present)
    Bonnie saves everyone. Whether they're worth saving is debatable, but she has the power, and she has the witty comebacks (and perfected death stare).

    Davina, The Originals (2013-present)
    Don't mess with Davina. She'll torture you in a very specific way, making sure she gets in some quality psychological pain as well.

    Sally Owens, Practical Magic (1998)
    Because it takes a lot of guts and power to constantly come to the rescue of her equally magical sister.
