* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.)

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'']]

* 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.
