Iron also effects humans, who enter full astra state, exactly the same as it does to ghosts, they can be imprisoned by it, to touch it causes them pain, and makes them temporaily disappear, although like ghosts, the only reappear inside the iron prison.
|Don't worry. Most creatures I meet can't get it up for iron. It's a common monster problem.

'''Iron''' is a metallic element that possesses strong supernatural properties and is thus used by [[hunter]]s when combating certain supernatural creatures.
 
 
==Creatures Affected by Iron==
 
*'''[[Demons]]''' - Touching an iron will burn most demons.
 
**'''[[Acheri]]''' - Contact with iron will force an Acheri to dissolve and temporarily retreat.<ref>''[[All Hell Breaks Loose - Part 1]]''</ref>
 
*'''[[Wendigo (creature)|Wendigos]]''' - The [[Pad of Definitions]] mentions that wendigos can only succumb to a few [[:Category:Metals|metals]], one of them is iron, although it dosen't states that it can in fact '''kill''' them.
 
*'''[[Fairies]]''' - All fairies are weakened by iron, although powerful ones like Leprechauns can shrug it off.<ref>''[[Clap Your Hands If You Believe]]''</ref>
 
*'''[[Ghosts]]''' - Shooting or stabbing a ghost with iron will temporarily make the ghost disappear. Ghosts also can't cross iron. Sam and Dean consider cold iron to be the best way to repel vengeful spirits. If a person possessed by a spirit touches something made of pure iron the spirit will be forced out of the [[Humans|human]].
 
*'''[[Hellhounds]]''' - Iron can harm them as demonstrated in the episode "[[Abandon All Hope...]]" in which [[Ellen]] and [[Jo]] sacrifice themselves to attempt to kill the attacking hellhounds by detonating a propane bomb filled with iron nails and rock salt.<ref>''[[Abandon All Hope...]]''</ref>
 
*'''[[Leshi]]''' - The only way to kill a Leshi is to cut off its head with an iron [[Fire axe|axe]].<ref>''[[Fallen Idols]]''</ref>
 
*'''[[Phoenix]]es''' - Iron burned the Phoenix's skin, and it couldn't touch Iron, or if imprisoned by it, escape.<ref>''[[Frontierland]]''</ref>
 
*'''[[Shtriga]]s''' - Consecrated Iron bullets are the only known thing that can kill a Shtriga.<ref>''[[Something Wicked]]''</ref>
 
*'''[[Witch]]es''' - Although Iron doesn't hurt witches, it blocks their powers, as Dean used it to restrain [[James Frampton]] and he was unable to escape from them or [[Astral Projection|astral project]].<ref>''[[Man's Best Friend With Benefits]]''</ref> [[Olivette]] was also bound by Iron when [[Crowley]] captured her for his mother [[Rowena]] and was left powerless. However, a sufficiently powerful witch such as Rowena proved able to eventually break free from the iron chains Sam placed on her and even noted that iron won't hold her for too long. Iron’s ability to block a witch’s power isn’t absolute as it doesn’t prevent certain spells such as removing the Mark of Cain.
