** Azazel in Seasons 1 and 2 and Lilith in Seasons 3 and 4. [[spoiler:Late in Season 4, it turns out that Lucifer has been the true Big Bad all along and everything in the plot, going back to decades before it, was according to his plan.]]
** In Season 6, after [[BigBadEnsemble much]] [[EvilVersusEvil competing]] between Crowley, Eve, Raphael and [[spoiler:Castiel]], the true Big Bad turns out to be [[spoiler:Cas, who manipulates everyone else in order to become God]].
** And in the Season 7 premiere, [[spoiler:we learn that Cas accidentally released some ancient beings called Leviathans, which take control of his body and (seemingly) kill him, before mass possessing numerous humans. They (specifically, their leader, Dick) then become the new Big Bad]].
** In season 8, Crowley once again appears to emerge as the latest Big Bad. [[spoiler:And the heretofore unseen Angel Naomi steps up to the plate as well.]] At the last second however, they both get trumped by [[spoiler:Metatron, who succeeds in killing Naomi and manipulating Castiel into a spell that casts the angels out of heaven. Abaddon also comes back in at the eleventh hour to try to overthrow Crowley as King of Hell, setting herself up as the new bad for Season 9]].
** And indeed, Abaddon is the big bad of Season 9, but she [[BigBadDuumvirate shares the post]] with [[spoiler:Metatron]].

** {{God}} himself is often accused of being a NeglectfulPrecursor at the very least. Ironically, the angels (especially Lucifer) are embittered because God supposedly favored humanity over them. But He has subsequently allowed angels, demons and monsters of all kinds to do horrific things to humanity without making more than a token effort to help and possibly (if He is indeed [[spoiler: Chuck]]) deriving personal entertainment from watching it all.
* AccidentalKiss: Bobby excitedly lays one on Sheriff Mills after she discovers that [[spoiler: Borax can hurt Leviathans]].

Only, Dean once learned that a vampire can fight its bloodlust by seeing a vamp do just that, knows that some ghosts are misunderstood, even had a very brief truce with a Leviathan (the beleaguered assistant). Doesn't stop him later refusing to even ''consider'' that werewolves might be able to resist human flesh [[spoiler: even when a friend is one of them]].

** [[spoiler: One reason that Castiel has a problem with understanding Pop Culture as opposed to his angelic counterparts such as Anna, Uriel, Zachariah, etc, (who have all been able to understand and even make pop culture references of their own) may be due to Naomi's brainwashing, as it is revealed in Season 8 that she has been wiping his memory over and over again due to his multiple rebellions against Heaven. Because she's been wiping his memory indiscriminately, she'll erase what he's learned about pop culture along with everything else, whereas other angels will recall what they've learned about humanity.]]

** Season six takes it even further, featuring four separate {{Big Bad}}s. Early on in the season, to start with, we have [[MagnificentBastard Crowley]] - the new King of Hell - who wants to find Purgatory and take control of its souls, and the ArchangelRaphael, who is trying to take control of Heaven and restart the Apocalypse. Then, midway through the season, we meet [[EldritchAbomination Eve]], the [[MotherOfAThousandYoung "Mother of All"]], who wants to [[KillAllHumans overrun the world with her "children"]]. And ''then'', a few episodes before the season finale, we find out that [[spoiler: Castiel]] has been in a [[EnemyMine tentative alliance]] with Crowley to find Purgatory so that he can [[spoiler: defeat Raphael and prevent his plans from coming to fruition]].\\

He absorbs the souls of Purgatory, kills Raphael, and sends Crowley running, all before proclaiming himself the new God]].

* CoolSword: The angels carry these, as they are among the few things that can actually kill them. [[spoiler: By [[spoiler:By season eight, other characters including Meg and Crowley have started carrying them and they have shown to be useful in killing other supernatural creatures including demons, hellhounds and even reapers.]]



** Anything attempting to take on an archangel ends up burned to dust with a simple touch, or exploded with a snap of the fingers. Lucifer slaughters pagan gods without breaking a sweat [[spoiler: and then kills his brother - the ''archangel'' Gabriel - just as easily]].
** In the Season 6 finale the final battle between [[spoiler: Castiel and Raphael]] ends up being like that. [[spoiler: Amped up on purgatory souls, Castiel]] merely snaps his fingers and [[spoiler: Raphael]] explodes into bloody goo.

*** Toward the end of season 10, he shows exactly WHY the other demons are so willing to submit to him. [[spoiler: Sam, as per a deal with Rowena attempts to kill Crowley using a combination of a Devil's Trap bullet, and special hex bag. At first, it seems to work... until Crowley taps into the full extent of his demonic power, shrugging off the effect of the bag and ripping out the bullet with seemingly little effort (something even Abaddon struggled to do). He then proceeds to hand Sam his ass before leaving, letting the younger Winchester know that the only reason he is still alive is because ''he'' allowed it.]]

** This trope is the primary reason why Sam and Dean (and a all other hunters) will never be able to adequately resolve the psychological issues they've accumulated over the years.

Added DiffLines:

** The episode "Season 7, Time for a Wedding!" has a [[GenderFlip gender-flipped]] version of the same situation, with [[AbhorrentAdmirer Becky]] basically drugging Sam into falling in love with her. When it starts to wear off on him, [[NearRapeExperience she knocks him out, takes his pants off, and ties him to the bed]] (but insists that she didn't "consummate" their "marriage" yet). It's PlayedForLaughs and also used to show how much of a loser Becky is... in the exact same season where it is repeatedly implied that he was raped by [[spoiler:[[{{Satan}} Lucifer]] in Hell]] and is slowly going insane from the memory of it. This show has issues.

** In "Rock and a Hard Place," we get to see an uncharacteristic behavior from Dean, who stalks a reformed porn star trying to move on from her past with the sole intention of sleeping with her despite her objections to his advances. Yeesh.

Added DiffLines:

* DraconicHumanoid: A bizarre example: there are actual dragons who have no draconic physical features at all. They look and act identical to humans (it's stated that they're shapeshifters, and we never see them in their full dragon forms). Their behaviour, however, is rather draconic, such as kidnapping virgins and possessing fire-based powers.

Added DiffLines:

* AngelicTransformation: The show zig zags this trope. Angels have human vessels, basically extra-devout humans who allow angels to use their bodies to become corporeal on Earth. But sometimes angels lose their grace, and become fully human; yet they continue to consider themselves as their angel self rather than their human self. For example, the human Jimmy Novak allowed the angel Castiel to use his body, but when Castiel becomes human he doesn't think of himself as Jimmy, he's still Castiel.

* CaughtInTheRipple:
** "My Heart Will Go On" features a fallen angel going back in time and changing the timeline, preventing the ''Titanic'' from sinking, and causing all sorts of ripple effects. Sam and Dean are blissfully unaware that they're living in an altered timeline until they discover it over the course of the episode.
** Another episode has Sam & Dean Winchester leading completely different lives as unrelated people [[MeaningfulName Dean Smith and Sam Wesson]], an executive and an IT guy working at the same firm who get sucked into a supernatural mystery. Turns out it's a ploy by some angels.
