Larger-than-life, resourceful, and fascinating villains were one of the things that cult fantasy fans Supernatural couldn’t get enough. In fact, the show had a string of supervillains keeping the heroic Winchester brothers on their toes.
However, the big baddies alone couldn’t sustain the show if it hadn’t been for a variety of low-key, but often dangerous, antagonists the brothers had to face and fight. Whether they were humans, angels, or humans and angels possessed by other angels and archangels, there was no shortage of challenges the siblings had to face, beyond the typical monster of the week monsters.
10 Bela Talbot
Bela was not so much a villain as a troublemaker. It appeared as suddenly as it left, but in the short period of time that its path crossed the boys’ path, it brought them a world of trouble, including the theft of a staggering $ 46,000, which was probably more money than they had. Sam and Dean had or were. never to see in their lives.
Bela also stole the coveted Colt from
the brothers, the weapon that was the only one of its kind and could kill any entity because it was immune to other weapons. Never particularly scrupulous, Bela was a slippery eel, but she certainly wasn’t as hideous as some of the people or creatures Sam and Dean are going to meet. Her death, presumably by hellhounds, seemed a bit harsh and the boys seemed to forget about her very soon.
9 Anna milton
The fallen angel Anna seemed like a potential ally to the brothers and Castiel at first, and even had a fiery night with Dean in the back of the Impala, one of many emotional ones. Supernatural moments the Impala had been through. She was an angel who had rebelled against Heaven’s requirements and thus seemed one of the good ones, capable of thinking for herself.
However, she soon became antagonistic when she decided to go back in time and kill Mary and John Winchester so that Sam and Dean would never be born, the first of the 66 seals that had to be broken to free Lucifer on earth would remain intact. and most importantly, Lucifer would not have his true vessel. She was then killed by the archangel Michael who possessed John and who wanted to save his wife and even though that meant the apocalypse couldn’t be stopped, Anna’s death was a good ending.
Not an absolute villain, Gadreel was one of the main characters in season 9, and something of a secondary antagonist after Metatron, the scribe of God.
Gadreel had taken refuge in Sam’s body after most of the angels were expelled from heaven. Having convinced Dean that this was the only way to keep Sam alive, he ended up becoming the right hand man of the scheming Metatron. While he seemed ambivalent at first, fans turned completely against him when Gadreel, possessing Sam, murdered young Kevin Tran in cold blood on Metatron’s instructions, and Dean was unable to do anything about it.
An angel who at first seemed desperate to save a chaotic sky, Duma gradually turned antagonistic as she allowed Lucifer to rule the sky in exchange for his help in creating more angels.
She also dominated the sky briefly, creating a reign of terror that made the sky a brutal final destination for humans. He also manipulated Jack so that he could have his tremendous power at his disposal, eventually becoming a vessel for the Shadow, the entity that rules the Void, one of the main locations / stages in Supernatural, since time immemorial. Duma was another loose end that needed to be tied up, which Cas eventually did.
Billie the Reaper became Death after Dean Winchester killed the former Death with his own scythe. Initially seeming to be an ally who wanted to save the world and destroy God just like the Winchesters did, Billie turned out to be a villain towards the end of season 15 as well.
Billie’s ending was ambiguous, for the most part, although it seemed like she was on the side of the brothers and wanted to get rid of God. To that end, he had even resurrected Jack and told him how to
It could enhance his strength that he would need to preserve to kill God. However, in the end, it was revealed that Billie had been manipulating the brothers and Jack the entire time. She wanted to kill God not to save the world, but to take over the universe herself.
5 Toni Bevell
Though not exactly low-key, Lady Toni Bevell became a temporary villain in season 12 as the ruthless killer on the payroll of the British Men of Letters.
Bevell was shown to be something of a terminator, with very little morality or scruples to anchor her, and willing to do whatever he could to follow directions from above. She kidnapped Sam Winchester and inhumanely tortured him, all to please the high command. And unlike Ketch, who at least had a compelling personality, Bevell’s character was simply irritating. This was a villain that fans hated unlike others Supernatural villains whom they loved.
Uriel, one of the first angels the brothers met, tricked everyone (including Castiel) when it was revealed that he was actually working to bring about the apocalypse, rather than helping to stop it.
Like the devil’s mole in the sky, Uriel was one of the angels who had turned against God, fed up with his absence and tired of following the instructions of someone who never actually showed up. He was probably the one who proved to Sam and Dean that angels, contrary to popular perception, weren’t necessarily the good guys. Uriel was still just a pawn as more important angels like Zachariah soon joined the party and made life hell for Sam and Dean. But he was the first of the villainous angels the brothers encountered.
Castiel makes this list as he almost turned from the dark side more than once. Season 6 saw Cas going rogue, killing hundreds of his fellow angels, not to mention the humans he slaughtered. The idea of becoming God possessed him to the point where he lost whatever shred of humanity he might have gained from spending time with humans like Sam and Dean.
Later too, Cas agreed to let Lucifer in so they could defeat the Darkness. However, Lucifer had his own plans and Lucifer in the form of Cas soon took over Hell where he held Crowley captive, killed Rowena, and basically raised Hell. Castiel himself might have been the best of entities, but he made some decisions that didn’t turn out so well, especially for him.
2 Soulless sam
One of the villains over the course of the series that fans might have forgotten, but who was definitely a key antagonist at the time, was Soulless Sam. Sam Winchester returned in season 6 of Lucifer’s Cage in Hell, where he had been smashed and beaten to the point where when he returned, his soul had been left behind.
The chaos that the heartless Sam caused became a major plot point in season six when Sam lost his connection to
softer human emotions and he didn’t care if he had to kill a few perfectly innocent humans here and there. He even put a vampire on his own brother knowing that the latter was at risk of being converted, and indeed he did! Soulless Sam might have been pretty low-key in the context of the entire series, but it was pretty scary for a period of time.
1 John winchester
Of course, John Winchester was a good man who had met with a terrible tragedy when his wife died so gruesome, leaving him with two young children, one of them a baby. It was also he who taught the children everything they knew about hunting.
However, there is a reason Supernatural Fans consider Bobby a better father to siblings than John Winchester. It was John’s obsession with finding the demon that had killed his wife that led Sam and Dean down this path from where there was no turning back, which robbed them of childhood. And although they saved the world multiple times, and certain events had set in motion that would have affected them anyway, the brothers only had to thank their father for many of the sacrifices they had to make.
