When the Supernatural fandom began, fans would occasionally discuss collective terms that could be applied to Supernatural fans, similar to "Trekkies or Trekkers" for Star Trek fans, or "X-Philes" for fans of the X-Files.

Discussions were had, polls conducted, suggestions such as rocksalters, saltgunners, renegades and roadies canvassed, but nothing ever stuck.

Super fans has been used occasionally - possibly coined by TV reviewer Matt Roush is response to a fan postcard campaign in February 2007. See Promote Spn

See also Supe Nazi a term coined by TV critic Michael Ausiello and Super Freaks. The term SPNers has some currency and is often used by Clif Kosterman on Twitter.

In 5.01 Sympathy for the Devil, Bobby refers to Becky Rosen as Sam's "super fan".
