* OurGodsAreGreater: The series seems to be based on Henotheism - there are multiple pagan gods (who are scarily powerful but can still be defeated and killed), with the Judeo-Christian Creator God as the one that is actually omnipotent but [[HaveYouSeenMyGod inaccessible]]. Appropriately enough "WordOfGod" confirms ''Literature/AmericanGods'' was a major influence on ''Supernatural'', so it likely works on similar rules. Therefore, Kali and Ganesh were simply versions of the gods brought over by settlers. In America, a largely Christian country, an Judeo-Christian angel is more powerful. Had the fight taken place in India, it would have been a different result.

* PrisonDimension: Purgatory mainly functions as the afterlife for all the monster souls in the universe. However, the Grim Reaper later reveals that it was originally build by God as a prison to prevent the primordial Leviathans, God's first beasts, from eating the rest of creation.

** In season 6, there's a vampire named "[[RobertPattinson Robert]]" and the teenage girl named "[[Creator/KristenStewart Kristen]]", as well as a series of totally-not-''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' books that Sam and Dean [[YourVampiresSuck rip the living bejeezus out of]]. The episode is (brilliantly) titled "Live Free or Twihard".

:: 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]] at little...murky.

** Done in "Heaven and Hell", except a girl (actually, an [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angel]] who has lost her "grace") suggests that to Dean, who is a little put off by the fact that it's usually ''him'' who tries to do the same. It doesn't stop him, though. ** Subverted in "Abandon All Hope..", where Dean tries to do it with Jo, only for Jo to say that if this is really her last night on this Earth, she'll spend it with dignity.

* Dean shifts the blame off of himself and onto other people constantly, most often Sam and Cas. Lucifer being freed was just as much his fault, if not more, as Sam's, yet Dean blames Sam for it repeatedly, even after Sam repents. Oftentimes, trouble occurs because of Dean's refusal to listen to Sam and Cas's advice.

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.

** In "Hammer of the Gods", Lucifer gets immolated completely by the Hindu goddess Kali, but when the flames dissipate he's still standing in the same spot looking almost bored.

* OffingTheAnnoyance: During Death's [[EstablishingCharacterMoment character-defining]] intro in "Two Minutes To Midnight", he takes a stroll in Chicago looking like a normal human and a rude guy too busy with his phone makes the mistake of bumping into him and scolding ''him''. Grim barely glances back, slightly brushes his coat as if getting rid of a pesky fly, and the guy immediately drops dead right on the street. As is later seen, it's not used to villainize him however; he just operates on such a larger scale that he actually is just getting rid of what to him is nothing more than a petty microbe.

* 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, 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.
