(The Supernatural WMG page is in the process of a revamp. Pardon our dust.)
This page is for guesses related to Supernatural that cross over with other media.

- Go to the main Supernatural WMG Page for plot-related and general Guesses.
- Go to the Character Guesses page for Guesses related to characters.
- It was while working WITH the Architect to craft the system of the Hunters that the Oracle developed the idea for the Prophecy plan and created a side religion to bring about the Neo program.
- Maya's power is the result of being possesed by a demon. (It explains the black eyes.)
- The characters with powers in Heroes will eventually be forced to kill each other off until only one is left. Sylar was just the first to figure it out. Of course, this could get complicated now that we know that Claire's blood can bring people Back from the Dead.
- Daphne's even from Lawrence, Kansas. Appearance says her family is an offshoot of the Campells.
- It makes sense considering they've taken the exact same approach to Lucifer. This Troper constantly recalls Bartleby's parking lot speech when watching the show. The theologies sync up perfectly.
- Castiel, while full of Holy Wackiness, responds to a probing question the same way God does in Dogma ("boop" with nose poke). Perhaps he is ill with the malady of the Holy Mind.
- Oh, and in season 7, Castiel says he recognizes the handwriting on an ancient rock as Metatron's. I think we may have something with this one.
- Not to mention, no one can find God, same as the movie. He / She is trapped in a comatose body and needs to be freed. In the show, I'm betting that God is on Earth and is just being helped captive in a similar manner. Oh! And in the 'Sam's afraid of clowns' episode, the guy at the ticket counter even suggests that Dean play skeeball.
- I assumed it was the other way around, that the Tadfield Apocalypse happened before the Winchester Apocalypse.
- He's currently moonlighting as a man named Jim Sterling, because being the king of hell gets boring sometimes.
- Recently, he's just quit the FBI and helped stopped an alien invasion by going through time and space.
- Season three was supposed to be Fi going to hell to save her dad, before Disney nixed it as too heavy for a children's show. So he sold his soul for rock 'n' roll, the demon collected, and his soul's in hell. But between the beginning and end of the contract he got into being a hunter because of his encounter with said demon.
- So... she's named after someone who is named after the Biblical Eve anyway?
- Joe is Michael. The events of the Steve/Lucifer series take place at the same time as the Joe/Michael series; They are seperated so they won't fight.
- Blue is Sam's Soul.
- Magenta is Adam's Soul.
- Dean and Jack's facial expressions are way too identical.
- I would give anything for this to be true, omg.
- Possible. It would have to be through a cousin being Henry Winchester, though. Charles's brother passed away as a child and the timing is off for Henry to be Charles's son. Besides, he would never allow his children to live in Kansas.
- He's only ridiculously powerful when Lucifer is on Earth. They said this in the episode, but it is frequently overlooked. Under the current circumstances I'd wager that his power is roughly equivalent to a trained Psykid or maybe a low-level witch.
Tom, of course, is Dean. He designed the program, based on 20th century American mythology and got Harry to come by promising him a bigger role than in Captain Proton, and delivered with Sam.
Tom wrote in Castiel specifically for Tuvok in order to win a bet that he could get him on the holodeck. He failed, but had made Castiel so integral to the plot that someone had to play him, and so Seven of Nine was recruited. She repeatedly threatens not to come back, but always gets pulled back in anyway, hence Cass repeated deaths and resurrections. Eventually, Tom finally does manage to get Tuvok onto the holodeck...as Crowley. Tom was initially worried that Tuvok wouldnt bring the pathos required to the part, but was surprised and a little scared when he really, really did. Tuvok claims that he is only being true to his character and its all a facade, but most of the crew suspects he enjoys getting to be a little megalomaniacal. Chakotay is Bobby Singer and chose not to be resurrected in the belief that it made his characters death less meaningful. The Doctor hijacked one adventure when Tom skipped a shift in sickbay and inserted himself as a fairy to screw with him. After this, Tom promised hed write him a character if he stopped and after a great deal of brainstorming Metatron was born. After his death, The Doctor got to be one of the British Men of Letters. Q is Gabriel. No one else is aware of this. Neelix is Garth. When Janeway is finally persuaded to join the group, Tom hastily writes in Abbadon, which she played with gusto. After her death, Janeway asks to be written in on the good side and Tom eventually comes up with Mary Winchesters resurrection (though not before Janeway played a couple of extra sessions takoong over Charlie). BEllanna briefly played Bella before losing interest. Also she made Tom delete Lisa and Ben. Mostly Lisa.
Sam and Dean have fought various gods from polytheistic religions who still exist in the 21st century but with reduced strength. In Xena and Hercules, the gods of the different polytheistic religions existed simultaneously. Some episodes shows the then present day (so late 20th century/early 21st century) and, at least for Ares, noted his power was reduced with few people praying to the Greek Gods.
Xena and Hercules specifically showed the time of the old gods was coming to the end as more people were moving towards worshipping a single "God of Love" who had Archangels working for him, including Michael and Lucifer. Michael even started the apocalypse at one point, including summoning the four horsemen, but called it off. The god in question supposedly predated the other gods and was specifically referred to as The Light, being offset by another being called The Darkness (or Dahak). So this is similar to the relationship between God and The Darkness (or Amira) in Supernatural.
Hercules especially had various monsters to fight and these did sometimes include things like vampires and witches. Hercules did have a "mother of all monsters" character (the name taken from Greek mythology), though she would be admittedly hard to reconcile with the Supernatural version.
There are admittedly some key differences in the mythology of the shows. In Supernatural, Xena never made Lucifer the king of hell, for instance.
I would argue though that this is where we get into a take on the Literary Agent Hypothesis. The "present" episodes of Xena and Hercules portray Hercules and Xena as TV shows (Xena being based on "The Xena Scrolls" and Hercules featuring "Kevin Sorbo" who is actually Hercules).
So the real WMG is that, within the Supernatural universe in a sort of weird metafictional sense, the "real" events of Hercules and Xena which "inspired" the Hercules and Xena tv shows, did in fact occur.
