He's planning on invading the main universe that the heroes live in, which he refers to as Paradise World, since he wants to "trade up".

** Ghostfacers has a lot as well. Between the incompetence of the Ghostfacers crew, the depressing ghost's story, [[spoiler: Corbitt's death and Ed's tearjerker farewell]] and the Ghostfacers bumps before every commercial break, the episode is all over the mood map.

* MundaneSolution: Decapitation is only a minor setback to a Leviathan, but they can be burned by [[spoiler: Borax, which can be found in common household cleaners]]. They regenerate even from that, of course.

** 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.]]

** At the end of Season six, [[spoiler: Castiel absorbs the monster souls of Purgatory to get the power]] to defeat ArchangelRaphael, who wanted to restart the Apocalypse. But in doing so, he unleashes [[spoiler:[[EldritchAbomination the Leviathans]],]] creatures that God locked away to stop them from eating everything else.
** To an extent, Dean as well, not only for [[spoiler: breaking the first seal]] between seasons three and four, but also for [[spoiler: revealing to Azazel beforehand that his plans were going to work.]]
** Sam and Dean are unable to kill Abaddon so instead they [[spoiler: dismember her and bury the pieces]]. Later when they find out about the final trial to shut hell they decide to use her as a test subject. [[spoiler: She gets loose while they're on the phone with [[EvilGloating Crowley]] ]]
** By finding [[spoiler: Metatron]] and bringing him up to date on recent events (such as the failed apocalypse and that the ArchAngels are dead or sealed up) set into motion his plot for revenge, using Castiel as his UnwittingPawn.
** Death tells Dean that he'll make sure Dean can't hurt anyone else as a result of the [[spoiler: Mark of Cain]], but only if Dean kills Sam because all their issues stem from their ridiculous codependency. Dean actually agrees to this, but when the time comes he chokes and [[spoiler: scythes Death instead, apparently...killing?...him]]. Then the spell to [[spoiler: remove the Mark]] goes off, and since its existence was the lock on the latest ultimate SealedEvilInACan, the Winchesters are all set for their next season of getting punched in the face by monsters.

** Famine reawakens Sam's craving for Demon Blood and sends two of his men to be "snack" for him, knowing that unlike everyone else affected Sam ''can't'' die from having too much, and makes him powerful enough to kill demons. When Sam simply exorcises Famine's demonic bodyguards, Famine chooses to devour them. [[spoiler: while Sam's powers don't work on Horsemen, he can painfully kill the demons inside of Famine.]]
** Could be construed as the case with Naomi's handling of Castiel. [[spoiler: Cas was able to easily beat Dean badly enough that he would not have been able to prevent Cas from simply taking the tablet and teleporting away. Indeed, he could have overpowered Dean and taken it as soon as Dean had it out of the box. But Naomi's insistence that Cas kill Dean led to him breaking free of her control. A classic case of a villain overplaying their hand]].

* OffTheRails: The angels. All of them. It seemingly started with Lucifer, but has only been getting worse over the ages as God has continued to refuse to speak to any of them except for Joshua (allegedly). At present even devout angels who long resisted succumbing to despair over God's absence, such as Castiel, have all broken ranks to pursue their own agendas. God, [[spoiler: if He is in fact Chuck]], appears to be finding this entertaining and is allowing everyone to do whatever they choose while making quiet adjustments from behind the scenes now and then to keep the game running, such as ensuring that none of the main characters stays dead for long.

** Cain, who is one of or possibly the first demon, was transformed by the mark of Cain, which was bestowed by the judeo-christian god but isn't actually god's curse as in the bible: the power that transformed him into a demon comes from [[spoiler: god's sister, who is roughly speaking the gnostic demiurge.]]

** In "The Monster at the End of This Book," the Winchesters discover they are the lead characters in a series of horror novels with a small but fervent fandom. Online research turns up fan criticism, Sam!girls, Dean!girls...and slash fiction. When the boys track down the author (who at first believes they are his fictional characters brought to life), he apologizes for all the emotional torment and bad writing they've been subjected to.
** [[invoked]]When they meet a fangirl who writes Sam/Dean slash fics...well, you can imagine. The boys are understandably [[{{Squick}} squicked]].

** He later gambles with him and buys him a hotdog, but continues to impress upon him the depths of his insignificance at every opportunity. It's here that Death also clarifies that he himself cannot, in fact, die. Which makes the end of [[spoiler: Season Ten]] a little...murky.

** Season six ends with [[spoiler:WellIntentionedExtremist Castiel]] preventing ArchangelRaphael from restarting the Apocalypse. To do so, [[spoiler: he only [[DealWithTheDevil allies with a demon]] he then betrays, [[JumpedOffTheSlipperySlope kills his closest angel allies]], [[KickTheDog breaks Sam's mind]], then absorbs all the monster souls from Purgatory for the [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity power]] to [[AGodAmI declare himself the new God]].]]

* PitifulWorms: The Angels that adhere more openly to FantasticRacism deride humans as either monkeys or maggots. Zachariah, a higher-tier and particularly [[SmugSnake smug]] Angel topped it by describing Dean as "nothing but a maggot inside a worm's ass".

Added DiffLines:

* PowerIncontinence: Chronos, the Greek God of Time, is the only deity shown who had next to no control over his powers. He's like a DarkerAndEdgier [[Series/QuantumLeap Sam Beckett]]: warping through different time periods seemingly at random after spending some length of time in one. The only way he can manipulate the coordinates is through human sacrifice. So when he wants to keep himself anchored to a specific period because it's home to the mortal woman that he fell in love with, [[LoveMakesYouEvil a lot of people end up dying]].

* PostRapeTaunt: An unintentional example in a town where a deity is causing everyone to speak nothing but the absolute truth. A man who is being treated by a dentist friend suddenly starts gloating about having molested his friend's daughter one night, which of course is immediately followed by the enraged dentist [[VigilanteExecution getting "creative" with his tools]].

* TheMultiverse: As of season 6 we have Earth, Heaven, Hell, Purgatory, an alternate future, the Trickster's alternate realities, the universe where their lives are a TV show, and of course, Fairy World (of which [[TheWizardOfOz ''Oz'']] is a subset, as of S9). TheMasquerade for normal humans has gone beyond just covering up for things that go bump in the night (oh, and the apocalypse). And, of course, Heaven itself is a mess of alternate realities strung together.

* MysticalPlague: The Croatoan Virus, which turns people into [[HatePlague rage-filled zombies]], is demonic in origin. Specifically, it was developed by the [[HorsemenOfTheApocalypse Horseman Pestilence]] on [[{{Satan}} Lucifer]]'s orders in order to herald the Apocalypse.

Added DiffLines:

** Zig-zagged a bit in the case of Lucifer, who is a demon in the Christian mythological sense (a fallen angel), and hell-hounds, which were never anything other than demons from "birth".
** Cain, who is one of or possibly the first demon, was transformed by the mark of Cain, which was bestowed by the judeo-christian god but isn't actually god's curse as in the bible: the power that transformed him into a demon comes from [[spoiler: god's sister, who is roughly speaking the gnostic demiurge.]]


Added DiffLines:

** The Judeo-christian god is eventually shown to be not quite omnipotent or indestructable either, it's just that nothing with the juice to harm him and the actual desire to do so shows up until later seasons. Death notes that he'll eventually reap god (though he has no intention of doing it before it's time to do so), it's somewhere between implied and stated outright that Lucifer's rebellion had a chance of actually succeeding, and eventually a being shows up that's sort of a mix of Death and the Demiurge that can simply take him on directly.

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Dean, although it's portrayed as not always a good thing. Hilariously, he concludes in Season 4's "Monster Movie" that, thanks to full body regeneration after being pulled out of Hell, he is a virgin again. (By the end of that episode he's not.)
