Superhuman speed

Refers to characters (or races) who can move at speeds beyond that humans can manage.

  • Ghouls - Ghouls are said to move faster than humans, at least enough to escape unseen after a surprise attack.

  • Kitsune - Relies mostly on speed when making its kills.
  • Rawhead - A rawhead quickly disappeared after his first attack on Sam and Dean.

  • Skinwalker - In dog form, they, as they're dogs, can run faster than a man could.
  • Vampires - They possess enhanced speed, and are exponentially faster than any normal human.
  • Werewolf - They are able to achieve great speeds.


When moving at superhuman speeds, the practitioner often appears as a faint streak and sometimes even a blur. Oddly, ghosts are able to move quickly.
