A Rawhead is a type of creature that lurks in basements and preys upon children.

Physical Appearance

Rawheads are hairy, ragged-looking humanoids with leathery skin. Their hands and feet are clawed.


Season 1

Sam and Dean are seen hunting a Rawhead. They go into a basement, where they find a boy and girl hiding in a cupboard. As they are taking the children to safety, the Rawhead ambushes them.

Sam leaves with the children while Dean fights the Rawhead himself. The Rawhead attacks Dean and throws him onto a wet floor. Despite the fact that they are both in a puddle of water, Dean uses his taser to electrocute the Rawhead, killing it but also severely injuring himself too. Dean is later healed by Roy Le Grange.[1]

Season 14

A hunter from Apocalypse World had his wounds tended to by Maggie. While tending to him, Maggie finds the tooth of Rawhead imbedded in his back. Maggie was fascinated by the tooth.[2]
