** Sam Winchester is essentially the chosen one of the series. He was chosen to be the vessel for [[{{Satan}} Lucifer]]. Everything that has happened, including the death of his mother, to Azazel/YED bleeding in his mouth, to the development of Sam'a special abilities has led up to the fact that Sam was the one that would eventually destroy the world.

* BackdoorPilot: Episode 20 of the upcoming season nine has been confirmed to be one.
* BackFromTheDead: Multiple characters return from the dead, sometimes repeatedly. Sam, Dean, Castiel and Bobby are the characters who return to life and the continue living (Although sometimes they die again later on). Castiel probably holds the record, having died and come back an average of once a season since his introduction. Two of those have died so often that the show had to invent an extra afterlife to keep them from getting bored so often.

** In season 5, the boys and Crowley capture another demon who serves and looks after the Four Horsemen. They need him to reveal the locations of Pestilence and Death, but the situation is complicated because this demon is revealed [[spoiler:to have tortured and roasted Jessica, Sam's deceased love interest.]] The demon gives a disgusting gloat about his crimes, and Sam can just barely resist killing him on the spot and getting his revenge because they still him.

* AbsoluteXenophobe: Lucifer is the most evil of the archangels, and [[FantasticRacism supremacist]] even by their standards (even the "good" celestials are fundamentalist racists who want to sacrifice half of the 'maggots', i.e. mankind, in the Apocalyptic showdown). His end goal is to use the Apocalypse to wipe out all of humanity [[ItsAllAboutMe because they became God's favorite children instead of him]]. The demons are minions he created himself to be fiercely loyal to him and further his plans, but he actually despises them even more than humans, and plans to kill them all afterwards. He considers the other gods besides his father abominations and murders most of them personally. The only major group he doesn't ''actively'' plan to exterminate are the monsters, but then he never has any interaction with them, and considering his opinion of God's other creations it's likely not a positive one. (Lucifer may just be indifferent to the monsters because they aren't actually God's creations, they're [[OneBadMother Eve's]] ([[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Mother of All Monsters]]) children.) He wants angels alone to rule and inhabit Creation, and tries to tempt multiple celestials to join him.

** Lucifer, anyone? Many demons venerate him, not realizing that he loathes them and only created them to spite his father.

* {{Adorkable}}: The titular character of Charlie in "The Girl with the Dungeons and Dragons Tattoo" is very plainly this, almost [[{{Anvilicious}} excessively]] so.
** Also, by his characterization Sam Winchester is this. As is Castiel in the earlier seasons and Kevin Tran, the AP student who is also [[spoiler:A Prophet of God who can read his "Word" etched onto ancient tablets by the angel Metatron]]

** 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:

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: A staple of the supernatural beings on the show - Archangels, Princes of Hell and monster Alphas are the leaders of their respective groups and are ''far'' more powerful and hard to kill than low level angels, demons and monsters.

* DestroyerDeity: There are many grim reapers who take souls. However, Death himself is one of the Four HorsemenOfTheApocalypse, and says that it's his job to [[BeyondTheImpossible reap God himself]].

There are many grim reapers who take souls. However, Death himself is one of the Four HorsemenOfTheApocalypse, and says that it's his job to [[BeyondTheImpossible reap God himself]]. [[spoiler:Though it might not necessarily be him personally, since it turns out that being Death is a GodJob and he gets replaced by one of his Reapers, Billy, after Dean kills Death first.]]
** A more literal example is The Darkness, aka God's "sister" Amara. They're both primordial entities, but she embodies Chaos and Destruction and tries to unmake reality by [[RealityBreakingParadox killing God]].

Added DiffLines:

* BanishingRitual: Demons can be removed from their host and sent back to hell with a Latin incantation (the Winchesters used this to deal with Demons before they acquired a demon-killing weapon), but there's also one for Angels (who also possess human hosts to manifest on Earth) in Enochian to send them back to Heaven. The only character who's ever seen attempting the latter is [[DemonLordsAndArchdevils Alastair]], since Angels are far too powerful to be even be restrained by anything less.

** It should be noted the vamps draining the cows are really brimming with blood lust because, while they just need blood to survive, they want human blood. The slaughtering of the cows may be less consequential and more a brutalization for the sake of brutalization, just to work out some of that tension. Besides, John's journal says "victims are taken to the nest to be drained for days or weeks." It doesn't specify the number of victims and it doesn't give a specific amount of time.
