The term "Manifestation" simply describes how a supernatural entity chooses to occur or exist on Earth. [[Angels]] and [[Demons]] manifest and physical appear on Earth via possessing a human host. Although Angels require the permission and consent of the human host for possession to be possible, whereas Demons can involuntary claim a human's body without the consent of the human host. [[Cupids|Cupid angels]] seem capable of instantaneous manifestation. [[Gods]] and [[Vengeful Spirits|Ghosts]], however, do not use a human host to exist physically on Earth, instead they assume human form, as do the [[Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse]]. [[Acheri Demon]]s tend to manifest on Earth in the form of young girls; like Cupid angels, Acheri demons seem capable of instantaneous manifestation, as proven when an Acheri immediately manifests after being summoned.

Revision as of 12:56, 29 December 2010

The term manifestation describes how a supernatural entity chooses to occur or exist on Earth. Angels and Demons are non-corporeal on Earth and they physically appear by possessing a human host.

Although Angels require the permission and consent of the human host for possession to be possible, whereas Demons can involuntary claim a human's body without the consent of the human host.

The most unique element about angels (in Supernatural) that isn't in typical lore is the notion that they have to possess. They control a human host in much the same way demons do. The only difference is that angels have to ask permission and demons don't. That provided us with all sorts of morality plays to work through because angels are nominally good, but they are putting human victims through this horrific experience just because the humans were devout enough to give their will away.

– Eric Kripke, Official Website

Other supernatural beings - including Gods, the [[Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, Ghosts do not seem to require a host body to exist physically on Earth, instead they simply assume human form.
