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:
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.
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.
- Spider People: While they don't have a centaur-esque set of Spider legs and abdomen like many other examples, they do possess compound eyes and can create webbing.
- The Virus: Arachnes create more of themselves by biting and turning human victims.
Appears in "Into the Mystic" (S11, Ep11).
- Black Eyes of Crazy: More like very dark purple sclera (with irises of gold), but fits the trope nonetheless.
- Brain Food: The banshee feeds on the frontal lobes of her victims.
- Make Me Wanna Shout: Banshees can unleash an ultra loud scream, though only the intended target they plan to kill can hear it.
- Super Smoke: They can turn into an ethereal form.
- Weaksauce Weakness: Gold is the only thing that can kill it.
Appears in "The Chitters" (S11, Ep19).
Appears in "Wayward Sisters" (S13, Ep10).
- Alien Blood: Their blood is blue.
- All There in the Manual: In the script in this case. You can read here for details.
- Black Cloak: They are all shown to wear tattered cloaks and cover their bodies and most of their faces.
- Four-Fingered Hands: Three fingered hands in their case.
- Humanoid Abomination: The Cloaked Figures who at first glance come from the Bad Place and show red eyes, but when we get a look at them proper when their hoods are pulled off, nothing underneath can be called even remotely human.
- Monstrous Mandibles: To use the words of the Supernatural wiki, "the canids mouth reveals a mandible that when opened reveals a beak with tendrils."
- The Nose Knows: They exhibit a strong sense of smell which they use to hunt down Sheriff Mills and the other hunters.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Their eyes are shown to glow red.
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.

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

- 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.
Portrayed by Julia Maxwell and Samantha Smith
- "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.
- Ambiguous Species: We never get any clarification about what exactly she is. The Other Wiki categorizes her as a God, and she's implied to be related to the Leviathans (although she's clearly different from them).
- 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 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.
- Dissonant Serenity: Very blasé about feeding a bar full of people to one of her children.
- Does Not Like Shoes: She doesn't put shoes on her human host's feet.
- Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: Or at least the body she's wearing is pale and brunette.
- 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 vs. 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.
- Faux Affably Evil: Walks up to strangers and gives them loving kisses... which turn them into monsters that proceed to attack any people near them.
- 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.
- Greater-Scope Villain: She is the one responsible for the creation of all of the evil creatures (with the exception of Demons, Angels, and Leviathans) Sam and Dean face throughout the series.
- 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.
- Monster Progenitor: With the exception of Demons, Angels and Leviathans she is the one responsible for the creation of every monster found in the series.
- 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.
- Parental Favoritism: Averted; she loves all her children equally and even commissioned the dragon killing swords so they wouldn't extinguish her other children.
- Power Nullifier: Because she predates angels she can nullify their power.
- 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.
- The Social Darwinist: Says she doesn't hold a grudge against human hunters for killing a few of her children since it's just nature (especially since her children give as good as they get). She feels differently about Crowley and Castiel abducting them en masse to experiment on them.
- 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.
- Transformation of the Possessed: Her possession drastically alters her host's body. The corpse left behind is still psychically connected to her children and the womb is filled with and producing monster eggs.
- 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 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).
Appears in "Man's Best Friend With Benefits" (S08, Ep15).
- All Witches Have Cats: The cat is a common type of familiar, but not the only type seen in Supernatural.

- 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.

Another new creation by Eve in "... And Then There Were None" (S06, Ep16).
- 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.

- Our Genies Are Different: Qarin in the Supernatural-verse are stated to be related to Djinn.
