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 ''[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110148/ 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:

Interesting to note that Supernatural chose to disregard some myths about vampires but kept others.  The method of incapacitating a vampire with blood from a dead person is part of the 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. Oftenly too, the vampire must absolutely stop drinking the blood of her/his victim before she/he dies, as drinking blood after death is harmful to the vampire. The symbolic of blood is very strongly associated to life, so one can argue that drinking 'dead' blood is adverse to the vampire myth.

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:

  • Samuel Campbell gives Dean a syringe of it when he goes to infiltrate the vampire nest in 6.05 Live Free or Twihard. Samuel describes it as enough dead man's blood to drop a linebacker "and then some." He fails to use it against Boris as a single drop of blood drips from the syringe and he senses it, but during his slaying of all the nest's vampires, Dean injects another vampire with it and presumably later kills him.
  • The Alpha Vampire is given an intravenous drip of dead man's blood to restrain him in 6.07 Family Matters, and dead man's blood is spread on the doors of the building in which he is kept as a deterrent to other vampires. Despite the dead man's blood, the Alpha Vampire eventually escapes, though he is weakened and is brought down when the demon possessing Christian Campbell injects him with two syringes at the same time.
  • When Dean and Benny go after rogue vampire Desmond in 8.09 Citizen Fang, Dean grabs a syringe of dead man's blood from the Impala's trunk which is shown to be stocked with them. In the fight that follows, Desmond overpowers Dean and smashes the syringe, but it distracts him long enough for Benny to kill him.
  • In 8.18 Freaks and Geeks, while hunting vampires, Krissy Chambers uses darts filled with dead man's blood to take down Jimmy Day who supposedly killed Josephine Barnes' family, allowing Josephine to kill him. Later, she shoots Seth, the vampire working with Victor Rogers, in the right eye and chest with the darts, taking him down. This saves Aiden whom Seth is holding hostage, and allows the group to get his blood to create the cure for his last victim. The vampire is then presumably killed.
  • As Dean and Mr. Ketch are preparing to wipe out a vampire nest in Wichita, Kansas, in 12.14 The Raid, Dean grabs a syringe of dead man's blood along with a machete from the Impala trunk.
  • In 14.03 The Scar, a vampire reveals that after being enhanced by Michael, they are now unaffected by dead man's blood. In addition, Jody Mills earlier states that she had Alex Jones test samples from the corpses of what turned out to be vampires with dead man's blood and it had no effect on them.
  • In 15.04 Atomic Monsters, when ambushing a vampire suspect, Sam hides a syringe of dead man's blood behind his back. However, they realize the girl is innocent as she has braces on her teeth, which a vampire couldn't have due to their fangs.
