Perchta is a minor antagonist in the 2015 American comedy-horror film Krampus.
Perchta is first encountered by the Engel family in the attic with the rest of the toys, where it attacks Sarah and attempts to hang her from the attic rafters using a string of Christmas lights.
Perchta is a possessed porcelain angel treetopper with cracked "skin". Her eyes are abnormally large and bloodshot, her mouth is filled with gnarled teeth, and she has a Pagan sigil etched into her forehead. Her hair is light blonde and is styled into pigtails held into place by holly and berries. Her dress is long, white, and tattered. Her arms gradually go from her normal skin tone to black and scaly, eventually ending in raptor-like talons. Her short legs are similar. Sprouting from her back are large avian wings with white and light gray feathers.
