Dead Man's Blood
A poison to vampires that incapacitates them for a short period of time. When the blood from a dead human is injected into a vampire it induces a blood sickness, causing them to become very weak.
The method of incapacitating a vampire with blood from a dead person is part of vampiric folklore. Tricking a vampire into drinking blood from a dead person to kill him has also been used quite a few times in vampiric tales, notably Interview with the Vampire, wherein the vampire must stop drinking the blood of her/his victim before she/he dies, as drinking blood after death is harmful to the vampire. In Supernatural, Dead Man's Blood has been used as follows:
- Dead Man's Blood is used by John in 1.20 Dead Man's Blood to restrain Kate, when he uses her as bait to lure out Luthor and get the Colt
- Samuel gives Dean a syringe of it when he goes to infiltrate the vampire nest in 6.05 Live Free or Twihard.
