That's right, you don't understand. Allow me to 'splain.
This is not a problem with fictional characters. I am not opposed to witches and wizards in general, but, in a minifig pack, witches, wizards, and kings cause problems with army building.
You can always use more soldiers and peasants. Suppose you buy 50 copies of a minifig pack. If I built a village, I could find a use for all 50 peasants. Building an army, I could find a use for 50 archers and 50 swordsmen. I could not find a use for 50 Wizards or 50 Kings.
This is because soldiers are generic. The more identical soldiers you have in one place, the more realistic your army is. However, there is only going to be 1 king in a kingdom, so if a minifig pack includes a King, you are punished for buying multiples because you end up with useless and redundant minifigs. That is because the king is not generic, the king is unique. There is only one. I feel the same way about Wizards or Witches. They should be rare and unique in a kingdom. If there is more than one witch or wizard in a kingdom, they should look different (clothing, face, hair, etc) and they should be few and far between.
Take a look at Lord of the Rings. There's Gandalf. There's Sarumon. There is Denethor and Theodrin. There are hundreds of horsemen and hundreds of soldiers.
Now, imagine a LOTR minifig pack. What if it included Gandalf, Sarumon, Theodrin, 1 Rohirim (horseman), and 2 generic soldiers from Minas Tirith. Now imagine you are trying to build an army of 100 Rohirim and 200 Minis Tirith footmen. You would need to buy 100 of this minifig pack, but then you would have 99 extra and useless Gandalfs, Sarumons, and Theodrins.
That is exactly why "unique" figures should not be in minifig packs. They should be in one or two sets from a product line, but the minifig packs should have generic people like soldiers and peasants.
KK2 suffers from a similar problem without even having a minifig pack.
