Characteristics

Demigods are typically the offspring of a god and a mortal human, though the Norse pantheon of gods were known to mate with the jötunn and other species. The abilities of demigods vary depending on the parents. Demigods like those in the Norse pantheon show certain abilities, and share a weakness to special wooden stakes. Demigods conceived through the union of a god and a human like Oliver and Pax display no signs of godhood; the demigod Oliver merely inherited his father Prometheus's curse.

Episodes

2.15 Tall Tales

Bobby explains that tricksters are demigods, like Loki in Scandinavian lore and Anansi in West African lore, among dozens of others.

5.19 Hammer of the Gods

Odin mentions that the end of the world will come when he is eaten by a "big wolf", referring to Fenris, a child of Loki.

8.16 Remember the Titans

Demigod: Oliver

Oliver was conceived by the Greek Titan Prometheus and a human woman named Hayley -- the only survivor of a hiking group -- after an avalanche freed Prometheus from his imprisonment atop a mountain. Once off the mountain, the two were intimate with each other and conceived Oliver.

Prometheus passed on his curse to his son, forcing the young boy to die and be resurrected every day like his father once he turned seven. The curse was lifted following the death of Prometheus, sacrificing his life to kill Zeus and spare his son of eternal suffering.

9.12 Sharp Teeth

The Myers family werewolf pack were members of an extremist faction of the Maw of Fenris -- werewolves who worship Fenris as a god who would bring about Ragnarök -- so that werewolves could inherit the earth. However, Reverend Jim Myers put an end to the werewolf cult, preaching coexistence rather than dominance.

13.20 Unfinished Business

Demigods: Fenrir Odensbane, Narfi, and Sleipnir

Gabriel tells the Winchesters that the Norse pantheon is its own weird thing, and that the sons of Loki aren't demigods in the truest sense. He describes Fenrir, Narfi, and Sleipnir as more "god-begotten monsters."

14.14 Ouroboros

Demigod: Noah Ophis

Noah Ophis is a gorgon and while Jack calls him a monster, he corrects him, saying he's technically a demigod.

15.11 The Gamblers

Demigod: Pax

Pax is the son of the Roman goddess Fortuna and an unnamed human father. He works with her at her bar in the middle of nowhere in Alaska where people hustle pool for luck rather than currency.
