The Four Horsemen are immortal and cannot be killed. However, it is rumored that Death's Scythe can kill Death, who is the most powerful of the four, and possibly the others; also, the [[Colt]] is said to have the power to kill anything except five beings (only [[Lucifer|one]] of which has been confirmed). It is unknown who the other four are, and it has been speculated that they are the Horsemen, while it has also been speculated that two of the others are God and Michael. Therefore, it is unknown if the Colt can kill them. It is also possible that a gunshot from the Colt will leave them in the eternally withered state most of them are left in when they are defeated.
War, Famine, Pestilence and Death are extremely powerful beings that are immortal. They can take on human form. Their powers and inner potential greatly surpass that of humans, [[demons]] and [[angels]].
Also, they each possess unique powers that coincide with their apocalyptic roles - War can alter human perception. Famine can affect people's urges and addictions. Pestilence can manipulate and generate deadly diseases which he uses on people. Death has full control over life and death itself.
War, Famine and Pestilence all require an individual ring in order for their core (main) power to be focused and manageable, and the lack of their ring seems to disassemble their true essential power. Ruby's Knife can wound and damage them.

Later, Dean and Bobby discuss the plan, and while Dean is skeptical, Bobby says that Death probably has a larger view of things than they do and they should have more faith in Sam.

{{Quotation|title=|text='''Dean:''' Horsemen, huh? Well we got War's... And we nicked Famine's. That's two rings down. Collect all four? All we need is Pestilence and Death.<br> '''Sam:''' Oh, is that all?|author=[[Dean]], [[Sam]]|source=[[5.19 Hammer Of The Gods]]}}
Each of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse wears a single ring. If the ring has a stone, its color matches that of its Horseman's car. The Four Horsemen draw or channel their powers via these rings, and most of them cannot properly sustain their full powers when they are taken. According to [[Brady]], [[War]] and [[Famine]] are in a debilitated state, and even getting the rings back to them would not soon make them active. [[Pestilence]] also appears weakened after the loss of his ring. [[Death]], on the other hand, seems unfazed by giving Dean his ring, suggesting that the ring is not essential to his nature. Death is likely more powerful than the other Horsemen, having been present since the beginning of time itself, and being one of the only constants in the universe.
