Added DiffLines:

* NotSoExtinct:
** The attack pattern of the MonsterOfTheWeek points to a dragon, but dragons aren't real... This might sound like ArbitrarySkepticism given what the Winchesters do for a living, but enormous flying reptiles that breathe fire are a bit harder to miss than Wendigos, vampires and so on so maybe it's justified... However, it turns out that dragons are shapeshifters, and throughout the episode only appear in their human forms.
** When they first appear, vampires are said to be all but extinct, but they have quite a few appearances through out the series.
** The Knights of Hell were thought to be extinct until Abaddon shows up. Still, she's the LastOfHerKind, all her fellow knights were destroyed by their ex-leader [[BiblicalBadGuy Cain]].

Added DiffLines:

** In Season 11, [[spoiler: {{God}} blames the failure of creation entirely on his creations refusing to acknowledge any of his own failings. When confronted with it he tries to make excuses or deflect blame It takes Metatron, Lucifer, The Winchesters and ultimately the necessity of Lucifer to fight Amara for God to take any responsibility at all for how things have turned out.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MonsterOfTheAesop: The episode "You Can't Handle the Truth" featured the Roman goddess Veritas who was killing people by making people around them tell the truth about anything, just when Sam and Dean are dealing with trust issues of their own because Sam is barely acting like a normal human (because he [[TheSoulless lacked his soul]], it turns out).

Added DiffLines:

* TheNotLoveInterest: As the CentralTheme of the show is family (blood or of choice), very many characters have this dynamic. Sam and Dean are the most apparent but hardly the only one.
** Jo might have UST with Dean but the most important person in her life is Ellen
** Bob has done and sacrificed more for Sam and Dean than even his wife. His last memory before he dies is of them.
** Kevin's closest bond is with his mother Linda. Half of their story is finding their way back to each other.
** Dean ends up being the not love interest to pretty much every dude he forms a close bond with. Sam, Castiel, Benny
** [[spoiler: God's is Amara. Their warring love/hate relationship is responsible for ''All Creation'']]

--> '''Dean''': An ex-demon-blood junkie, a high school dropout with six bucks in his pocket, and Mr. Comatose over there. Awesome.

* ParodyEpisode: ''Supernatural'' likes to [[PlayingWithATrope play with]] this trope once a season (in its second half)--while the Winchester brothers are still chasing a mystery, the format and/or subject matter of the episode (and their case) takes a comedic tone and it becomes obvious that it's parodying something:

Added DiffLines:

** Season 6 gives the ultimate SelfParody with "The French Mistake", in which the show mercilessly satirises itself and everyone working on it.

Added DiffLines:

* TheParalyzer: The angels have the ability to render people unconscious by touch, though they don't use this nearly as often as their [[TouchOfDeath killing touch]] because most of the show's angels are, well, [[LightIsNotGood fanatical pricks]]. Castiel demonstrates the non-lethal version on Bobby on his first appearance.

* OurAngelsAreDifferent: As Dean puts it, they're more "dicks with wings" than [[TouchedByAnAngel Roma Downey]]. Like demons, they posses (albeit willing) people in order to move about on Earth, and they can relinquish their grace and be reborn as humans.

* OurSoulsAreDifferent: You can sell 'em to demons (or angels!), string 'em up in Hell, and torture them! And when you need to move 'em around, [[PulpFiction a briefcase is all you'll need]] (admittedly, this was the means of soul transportation employed by Horsemen of the Apocalypse, not that of a mortal human). Humans can apparently survive without them, and simply lack emotions, empathy, and the need to sleep when lacking one. Monsters have them too, while ghosts and demons are respectively trapped and corrupted souls. Angels don't have them. Nor do Leviathans, being far older than the creation of souls.
