Other Monsters And Supernatural Beings in Supernatural

Many types of beings live in the Supernatural world, but do not have their own Character page; some of these include the following:

     Amazon 

Amazon

Appears in "The Slice Girls" (S07, Ep13).

  • Alas, Poor Villain: Emma certainly receives some sympathy from the Winchesters; It's hard not to feel sorry for her when she pleads Dean not to let Sam kill her even if she was being manipulative considering that's the only way she has been raised.
  • Does Not Like Men: It's considered in their culture to use men only for procreation and then kill them off.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Amazons mate with human men to produce offspring.
  • Initiation Ceremony / Rite of Passage: A horrific one. The Amazon girls are brainwashed into killing their father as an initiation ritual.
  • Patricide: Amazon girls are indoctrinated into committing this.

     Arachne 

Arachne

Appears in "Unforgiven" (S06, Ep13).

     Banshee 

Banshee

Appears in "Into the Mystic" (S11, Ep11).

     Changeling 

Changeling

Appears in "The Kids Are Alright" (S03, Ep02).

     Crocotta 

Crocotta

Appears in "Long Distance Call" (S03, Ep14).

  • Batman Gambit: The Crocotta's MO, especially in regards to Dean.
  • Our Crocottas Are Different: While its ability to mimic other peoples' voices is accurate to the myths of Eastern Africa, a Crocotta is said to look like a cross between a lion and a feral canine with spikes along its back. In contrast, the Crocotta as portrayed in Supernatural simply appears as a man with unusually thin, long and sharp teeth.
  • Phone Call from the Dead: The Monster of the Week lures its victims by faking phone calls (and other messages) from dead loved ones.
  • Race Lift: Crocottas are from Eastern African lore, but is portrayed here by a white actor.
  • Together in Death: The Crocotta invokes this to kill its victims.

     Dragon 

Dragon

Appears in "Like A Virgin" (S06, Ep12).

  • The Dragon: Apart from the obvious, to Eve.
  • Giant Flyer: Their other, non-Humanoid form that they can take, while never fully shown unobscured, has a more bat-like appearance.
  • Playing with Fire: An ability which can be used in either form.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: They can look human. This was to be explained in a scene that was deleted in which one of the dragons was to say "Your army was defeated and your kingdom burned to the ground. Who are you going to tell your king did it? Me a man, or a sixty foot, fire-breathing serpent snake from Hell?"
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: After their single appearance in this episode, dragons have never seen nor mentioned of again.

     Eve, the Mother Of All 

Portrayed by Julia Maxwell and Samantha Smith

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/210px-Eve_5921.jpg
"Okay, fine, I'll quit playing nice."

The first monster from which all others are descended.
  • Achilles' Heel: Phoenix ash is her only weakness. Even if phoenix ash has been drunk by Dean, that blood is lethal to her due to phoenix ash being in it.
  • Assimilation Plot: In "Mommy Dearest," we find out that her ultimate goal is to turn all humans into hybrid creatures so that all their souls will belong to her in Purgatory and denying any to Crowley.
  • Big Bad: She is the one responsible for the creation of all of the evil creatures Sam and Dean faced in the first five seasons.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: Somewhat in Season 6, until is subverted and she is the Disc One Final Boss.
  • Black Sheep: Suggested to be one in Season 7 as both her and her children are looked down upon by the Leviathans who are implied to be related to her and, by extension, to her children.
  • Disc One Final Boss: In Season 6.
  • Evilutionary Biologist: Has a few shades of this. She's not much interested in humans, except as potential test subjects to help her create the perfect monster.
  • Evil Versus Evil: She reveals in "Mommy Dearest" that she's come to Earth in response to Crowley hunting her "children" and is preparing to go to war with him.
  • Mother of a Thousand Young: From which almost all Sapient non-Humans with some exceptions (e.g. Angels, Demons, Leviathans) are descended from.
  • Nightmare Face: The aforementioned Glamour Failure in "...And Then There Were None" has Eve appearing on camera with the face of a rotting corpse and white eyes. Yikes.
  • Nothing Personal: More or less states she has nothing against Dean and Sam, or humanity in general. Her real beef is with Crowley and her attack on mankind is simply a means to an end.
  • Prophet Eyes: When she appears on-camera, her eyes are milky-white.
  • Punny Name: Ben Edlund said that Eve also refers to how she is moving towards a world of monsters, the time leading up to her reaching her goal.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Possesses a gorgeous young woman who may or may not be a teenager. That means that this only applies appearance-wise, as Eve herself is over ten thousand years old and thus more than old enough to be having children.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: When she's rising from Purgatory, her eyes are glowing yellow-ly. See her picture.
  • This Was His True Form: Played with. Although she does transform back to her previous appearance when she's dying, it's not actually her true form, but the form of the young woman she's possessing.
  • Woman in White: Wears a white dress.

    Fairies 

Fairies

Appears in "Clap Your Hands If You Believe" (S06, Ep09) and "LARP and The Real Girl" (S08, Ep11)

  • Badass Boast: The Leprechaun that Sam confronts scoffs at the power of angels (already shown to be immensely powerful) and claims to have "real magic, from my side of the fence." Given that he comes from another reality with completely different set of physical and metaphysical laws, this is no empty boast.
  • Deal with the Devil: It's implied in Season 6 that they have made deals with humans in much the same as demons do. Though while they don't demand a soul in exchange, they do seek something in exchange; in the case of "Clap Your Hands If You Believe," it is the right to take the firstborn sons of the town of the deal-maker, and they will strictly enforce it.
  • Disneyfication: Averted (see Our Fairies Are Different below). They can be quite dangerous and malicious. This aversion to Disneyfication is lampshaded in "LARP and the Real Girl" when a woman asks "Wait. Fairy magic can be bad?"
  • Drunk on Milk: In "Clap Your Hands If You Believe," the watchmaker says the cream is like tequila for fairies. The little folk are shown passed out or staggering around.
  • Fairy Sexy: Gilda in "LARP and the Real Girl."
  • Insane Troll Logic: Inverted in "LARP and the Real Girl" in that it is Gilda's human master who is this instead of her.
  • Land of Faerie: Their homeworld. Other inhabitants of their world include Changelings (according to the creators), Flying Monkeys, some humans (two known ones are the Wicked Witch of the West and the Wizard of Oz), and presumably, the Zanna.
  • Magically Binding Contract: See Deal with the Devil above.
  • Our Fairies Are Different: Supernatural has given us a variety of different types of fairies, ranging from the stereotypical Tinkerbell-like ones and shoe-making elves, to humanoid ones without wings, and menacing Redcaps.
  • Reality Warper: Potentially the most powerful ones in the series with the possible exception of the Trickster (AKA Loki/ Gabriel).

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hellhoundsn_6859.jpg

  • The Dreaded: Post-Season 3 they have become this for Dean, who appears noticeably afraid whenever he comes up against them. Both Brady and Meg become very scared when faced with the hounds as an enemy, and until Season 8, the Winchesters never actually tried to fight the Hellhounds, running from them or being saved by something else in every encounter with them.
  • Invisible Monsters: They are only seen by the person whose soul they are there to claim. They are invisible on the show with only their actions visible. Finally seen with all their glory in Season 8, as they can be seen with glasses burned by holy fire.

"You haven't got a name for me yet. I'm new around here. Eve cooked me up herself."

  • Body Surf: The Khan Worm possesses its victims by entering through any open cavity and leaves black goo behind after its job is done, leaving its host completely unaware that anything ever happened.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Invoked in that whoever it possess speaks in a deeper voice than they usually would. One notable example is Bobby.
