==History==
 
 
 
===Origin===
 
Gods are the ruling divine beings of a religion. The major deity featured in Supernatural is that of the Abrahamic religions (Christianity, Islam and Judaism) who is referred to as [[God]]. 
 
 
 
Gods are the deities which are represented in Supernatural in which their origins are separate from other Gods depending on the particular type of deity. Due to the as of yet unknown nature of the [[God]] of Supernatural, it is difficult to make exact comparisons of their role and overall abilities.
 
 
 
Kali describes her disgust for Westerners by accusing them of butchery and right to leadership in their own [[God]]'s name. She also states that she and the other Gods were on Earth before [[God]], or that their religions were practiced before his. Odin stated that the "real" Apocalypse will start when Midgard Serpent Jörmungandr rises up and Odin himself will be consumed by a big wolf. Although he was killed by [[Lucifer]].
 
 
 
While Gods are often thought of as immortal, in Supernatural even the Gods can be killed.
 
* Sam and Dean kill the Pagan Gods disguised as [[Madge and Edward Carrigan]], Sam kills the [[Leshii]] and Dean kills [[Zao Shen]] and [[Veritas]]
 
* [[Lucifer]] kills [[Baldur]], [[Ganesh]] and [[Odin]]
 
* [[Death]] declares that one day he will kill [[God]]
 
 
 
 
 
Throughout the Supernatural series, there have been many Gods encountered in the Supernatural Universe include:
 
* [[The Vanir]] (Pagan)
 
* [[Trickster]]/[[Loki]] (Pagan)
 
* [[Madge and Edward Carrigan]] (Pagan)
 
* [[Leshii]] (Pagan)
 
* [[Kali]] (Hindu)
 
* [[Ganesh]] (Hindu)
 
* [[Odin]] (Norse)
 
* [[Baldur]] (Norse)
 
* [[Mercury]] (Greek)
 
* [[Zao Shen]] (Chinese)
 
* [[Baron Samedi]] Haitian Vodou)
 
* [[Veritas]] (Roman)
 
 
 
==Powers and Abilities==
 
Their powers and abilities vary greatly depending on the type of deity.
 
 
 
They don't possess immortality. Although, all Gods can exist and live for long periods of time - at least centuries and more.
 
 
 
[[Trickster]]s - which are a demi-god - can alter reality. The only known way to harm or kill one is to stab them with a wooden stake which has been dipped in blood of one of their own victims.
 
 
 
[[Baldur]], [[Ganesh]], [[Odin]] and [[Zao Shen]]  are seen to possess extraordinary strength and are all able to assume human form. <sup>[[5.19 Hammer Of The Gods]]</sup>. The Page Gods disguised as [[Madge and Edward Carrigan]] actually live as a suburban couple.<sup>[[3.08 A Very Supernatural Christmas]]</sup>
 
 
 
Some Gods possess particular powers - for example like [[Kali]] produces fire, and [[Veritas]] can compel people to speak the truth.
 
 
 
Other pagan gods are able to influence the weather and vegetation positively and negatively as well. Like [[The Vanir]], who could cause growth and health of the crops and like [[Madge and Edward Carrigan]], who gave mild weather. Both seemed to be able to perform these in exchange for human sacrifices and their influence vanished in the lack of thereof.
