About This Quiz

Vampires, werewolves, angels and demons; knowing all of the characters on "Supernatural" can get a little complicated when they aren't all human. Do you think you know everything about them, though? Could you guess them from a single hint? Here's a quiz where you can put your "Supernatural" knowledge to the test!

"Supernatural" isn't made up of your typical cast of characters. Of course, there are the Winchesters with Dean's childish nature and Sam's slick hair, but there are also the hundreds of side characters that the boys come across as they try to kill as many evil things as they can. "Things" is the key word here, because not everyone they come across is human. Instead, they face demons, angels and just about any other monster you can think of, which can get complicated when Sam and Dean try to separate evil from monster.

Are you an expert on all of the "Supernatural" characters, monsters included? Do you know all of Sam and Dean's allies and enemies, the ones who helped them just to flip sides later and then maybe flip sides again? If you think you do, then here's a quiz for you. Get started and see if you can name these "Supernatural" characters from a single hint!
