Teleportation is the transfer of matter or energy from one point to another without traversing the physical space between them.
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
The rate or velocity of the various beings by which they teleport don't seem to vary, allowing a character to instantaneously and seamlessly appear or disappear.
Demons can be forced to appear by summoning them and angels can teleport or fly with the use of their wings.
Characters with this ability[edit | edit source]
Absolute teleporters[edit | edit source]
These characters -- the cosmic entities of the show -- can teleport to wherever they want in the whole of Existence, as long as they are in full possession of their powers. Two characters from the list below, God and Billie, have shown they can come and go as they please between the dimensions created by God, and two others, Amara and Death, most likely have this same ability (or, in the case of Death, had before his demise).
Moving between the alternate universes is some of the rarest of teleporting abilities. It is beyond the reach of even the archangels. It requires such a high level of power that even the beings mentioned in the list below can lose it if there is a considerable reduction in their level of strength, or if they fall into some form of supernatural entrapment. Thus, when he was shot at by The Equalizer, God lost the power to travel to other dimensions, getting trapped in the main one until he recovered from his wound. Death, himself, lost all his ability to move when he was stuck in his coffin, and the same happened to Amara when she was given her mark. A spell also exists that can do the same onto God.
God, Amara, and Billie have also shown they can easily overcome the powerful warding put in the Men of Letters bunker and teleport themselves inside the structure. No other supernatural beings can match this ability, either -- though archangels, for example, can overcome the warding by applying maximum force and damaging the structure of the building, they don't have the ability to just shrug the warding off like the cosmic beings have proven they can.
- God (formerly) - God can teleport anywhere in the multiverse. He could teleport to the other universes that he created. In Inherit the Earth it was revealed that after Jack exploded in The Empty he became a power vacuum that absorbs energy and thus charging his powers which made him unstoppable and he absorbed god's power in the process.
- The Darkness - As God's twin sister, Amara can teleport anywhere in the multiverse.
- Death - Death can teleport anywhere he wants.
- Billie - As the new Death, Billie can teleport anywhere she wants. She is capable of entering The Empty and also teleporting to the other universes throughout the multiverse.
- Jack (as God) - Like his father, he has the ability to teleport and can travel almost anywhere he wants. After Lucifer stole his grace, he lost this ability. In Ouroboros, Jack absorbs Michael's grace restoring his wings and powers as a Nephilim and he regains his teleportation. In Inherit the Earth it was revealed that after Jack exploded in The Empty he became a power vacuum that absorbs energy and thus charging his nephilim powers which made him unstoppable and he absorbed god's power and amara in the process.

Average teleporters[edit | edit source]
These characters can teleport anywhere on Earth.
- Daeva - Can be summoned to appear at certain locations through a ritualistic altar and amulet.
- Demons - Some demons can teleport to and from Earth and Hell easily.
- Dean Winchester - As a ghost through astral projection, Dean could teleport as demonstrated when he teleported out of a funeral home after being set free by the reaper Tessa. While wearing Death's ring, Dean teleported himself from the street the man crashed his car to Bobby's bunker. While powered by Michael (as his vessel), he was briefly able to teleport from the Men of Letters bunker to a church.
- Fairies - On Earth, fairies have been shown to be able to teleport from one location to another in the blink of an eye.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Despite being a prominent power in the series, only a handful of teleportations are shown on-screen, such as Azazel in season 1, and God in season 5. In Abandon All Hope, Castiel teleported the boys off-screen while generating a bright white light and a high pitched whining noise, while on other occasions, teleportation for angels was accompanied by the sound of their wings flapping and demons generating no sound at all.
- Teleportation appears to have unpleasant side-effects as shown with Dean's distaste for its effects. In LOTUS, Crowley also told Kelly Kline "this might sting" before teleporting her away.
- In Let the Good Times Roll, Lucifer's teleportation was accompanied by a bright flash of white light. When Dean, powered by Michael, teleported, the same flash was seen. However, when Michael teleported away in Dean's body shortly afterwards, this flash was not seen. This flash is similar to what was seen when Lucifer took Castiel as his vessel in The Devil in the Details.
