"So, Red Riding Hood comes into the house and finds the wolf dressed as her Grandmother. As if she wouldn't see through that."
Piper to the wolf disguised as Grams.[src]

The Big Bad Wolf is a character from the story Little Red Riding Hood.


The wolf was conjured by the Wicked Witch from the Magic Mirror to attack the Charmed Ones. He swallowed Grams whole and took her form while finding chances to eat Piper. The seven dwarfs recognized the wolf in disquise, but decided not to involve themselves.

As Piper re-read Little Red Riding Hood, the wolf repeated its lines in the story where it attacked Little Red Riding Hood, then returned to its true form and swallowed Piper. As Leo confronted him, the wolf attempted to jump into a book of fairy tales; which was a portal to such characters. However, Piper managed to blow him up from the inside before he could reach it, freeing both herself and Penny.
