|“||The Earth will no longer rotate for a single circle. The story will no longer to be developed. Tomorrow and the day after tomorrow also, is Walpurgisnacht.||„|
Walpurgisnacht was the regarded as the ultimate witch in Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Her power is so great that unlike normal witches she doesn't need her labyrinth, something even the dreaded Homulilly had. Who she was prior to becoming a witch is unknown, however, it should be mentioned that Walpurgis isn't technically one which, but a fusion of multiple, likely the reason behind her titanic power.
"The stage-constructing witch (alias: Walpurgisnacht / real name: unknown); her nature is helplessness. She symbolizes the fool who continuously spins in circles. The witch's mysteries have been handed down through the course of history; her appellation is "Walpurgisnacht." She will continue to rotate aimlessly throughout the world until she completely changes the whole of this age into a drama. When the doll's usual upside-down position reaches the top part of the witch, she completely roils the civilization on the ground in a flash through her gale-like flight." - Official Card Description

- Wiped the floor with Homura Akemi through at least a hundred timelines while not at full power.
- Is a sort of myth among magical girls for her sheer destructive capabilities.
- Witch's Kiss: Witches can manipulate the mind on innocent bystanders by thought (not an actual kiss), often causing them to commit suicide or create suicidal cults. It has been generally potrayed to be able to effect groups of people at once, and one witch has even manipulated an entire fortress.
- Barrier: The standard ability for most witches, the barrier is a small pocket universe that can greatly vary in terms of size made to protect the witch from the outside world, only accessible by magical girls or when witches allow access. They are based around the witch's former life's mental condition prior to dying and becoming a witch.
- Familiar Summoning: Another standard ability, a witch can summon several familiars (or create alongside the barrier) to fight on her behalf. If they absorb enough life energy, they can become duplicates of the witch itself.
- Absorption: A witch can passively absorb the life energy of those who enter their barriers. However, this is a rather lengthy process, so some witches tend to have an instant-absorption method, or simply absorb all of it by killing the enemy.
- Reality Warping: A witch can manipulate reality to cause issues for their enemies. This has been shown from manipulating the outsides of the barrier to attack the enemy, preventing them from even entering, or manipulate unresistant enemies themselves.
- Cursed Breath: A reference to Faust, she spews purple flames from her mouth.
- Fallen Star: Using telekinesis to move land into the air and covers out with a purple flame to be flung at her enemies.
- Liquid Flash: In an instant, she produces enough power to literally liquefy all of humanity across the Earth.
Key: Normal | True Power
Note: Familiar Summoning #2 appears in the manga only and can be considered non-canon, the names for her attacks are fan-terms. In one of the Puella Magi Witch cards, she is said to be capable of destroying the entirety of civilization to the point of liquefying them. The lowest AP this would be is Island level when only considering humans but because civilization is covered with man-made cities and such, it would skyrocket in attack potency if it was calculable.
