Other Monsters And Supernatural Beings in SupernaturalMany types of beings live in the Supernatural world, but do not have their own Character page; some of these include the following:
Appears in "The Slice Girls" (S07, Ep13).
- Alas, Poor Villain: Emma; 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.
Appears in "Unforgiven" (S06, Ep13).
- All Webbed Up: The victims of the Arachne.
- Gonk: As a result of an Arachne's molted skin and double irises.
- Kill It with Fire: Averted as they are immune to fire.
- Off with His Head!: The only confirmed way to kill one.

Appears in "The Kids Are Alright" (S03, Ep02).
- Creepy Child: While they invoke this, but those aren't the real children.
- Glamour Failure: The mirrors will reflect their true form. And it is not a pretty sight.
- Humanoid Abomination: They may look human, but if you happen to take a glimpse of their true form◊ you will realise they are far from it.
- Lamprey Mouth: The type of mouth they are revealed to have when seen in a mirror.
- Nightmare Face: Let's just say that they're not going to be winning any beauty contests anytime soon.
- The Mirror Shows Your True Self: A changeling's true appearance appears in a mirror.
- No Ontological Inertia: Killing the mother changeling kills her children.
- Would Hurt a Child: The mother changeling feeds on children.
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.
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?"
Eve, the Mother Of All
- "Okay, fine, I'll quit playing nice."
Portrayed by Julia Maxwell and Samantha Smith
- 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.
- 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.
- A Form You Are Comfortable With: Subverted. In "Mommy Dearest," Eve takes the form of Dean and Sam's mom just to mess with them.
- Fun with Acronyms: Fans call her the "Mother Of Monsters."
- Glamour Failure: By seeing her on security tape footage, it's very clear she is not human.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: She bites Dean to try and turn him into one of her hybrid creatures, only to find out that he had previously ingested some phoenix ash (her one weakness). Cue gory death.
- Humanoid Abomination: She's an Eldritch Abomination possessing a girl her Mooks tossed into Purgatory.
- Mama Bear: Do not hurt her children. She does not care if you are the King of Hell or not, she will hunt you down.
- Meaningful Name: The fact that her name's Eve and she's the mother of all monsters can't be a coincidence.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Uh-Oh Eyes
- Creepy Blue Eyes: In human form. The eyes themselves aren't creepy, but there's something dead in those baby blues when Eve's the one looking out of them. But...
- Prophet Eyes: ...when she appears on-camera, her eyes are milky-white. But...
- Supernatural Gold Eyes: ...when she's rising from Purgatory, her eyes are glowing yellow-ly. See her picture.
- Woman in White: Wears a white dress.
- 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 Fae: 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.
- 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).
Appears in "Man's Best Friend With Benefits" (S08, Ep15).

- 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.
- Punch Clock Villain: By virtue of the fact that they do not have sapience.
