Entities like archangels, angels and demons can also inflict harm on humans with their thoughts.


Archangel Raphael using telekinesis.
  • Max Miller moves objects with his mind, and uses his ability to kill those he felt wronged him.[1]
  • Sam uses telekinesis once in Season 1, motivated to move a piece of furniture blocking his way after he sees Dean killed in a vision.[1] This ability is not seen again until after his training with Ruby, although we only see it demonstrated once.[2]
  • Powerful demons in meatsuits can violently move objects and people. Lilith breaks a man's neck with a gesture;[3] Azazel moves Mary Winchester up the wall and onto the ceiling of Sam's nursery before cutting open her abdomen with his mind;[4] Ruby, to keep Dean from interfering with Lilith's death, closes the doors to the chapel of St Mary's Convent by outstretching her hand.[5]
  • Ghosts can cause people and objects to move, through both telekinesis[4] and ghost possession.[6]
  • Angels and Archangels in vessels are telekinetic. Uriel uses telekinesis to loosen a water pipe, drip water on a devil's trap, and free Alastair;[7] Castiel uses his abilities to escape from a circle of holy fire.[8]
  • War, Famine, Pestilence, and Death are all capable moving objects with their powers. Death moves his scythe after Dean drops it.[9]
