--> '''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:

** Season 3 had "Ghostfacers," which was a parody of both the Ghost Hunters ''and'' ''Film/TheBlairWitchProject''.

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.

Added DiffLines:

*MenDontCry: Completely and utterly averted. Both brothers cry often throughout the series. Dean cries so routinely, and beautifully, that the fandom created the term "Single man tear" to describe his crying style.

* 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".
