Being the eldest and most powerful of the [[Four Horsemen]], and an ancient primordial being of similar age to [[God]], Death is unimaginably powerful and is in fact one of the most powerful beings in existence. To explain his power level to Dean, he tells Dean to imagine a bacterium being snarky to him, stating the Galaxy is "barely out of its diapers" compared to him. Nothing can kill who he wills to live, as stated by Dean, and he can keep someone dead if he wants to without anyone being able to resurrect them.
* Apporting - Death was able to summon his scythe to him
".* Immortality - Death is exempt from all forms of pain, fatigue, age, and disease. Death stated that he will eventually be the only thing to last forever.
* Nigh-Omniscience - Death has an almost absolute awareness of the universe that exceeds that of the archangels, and is only rivaled by God.
* Nigh-Omnipotence - As a primordial being and being the eldest and most powerful member of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, Death can do almost anything that
he desires, possessing a great deal of near infinite supernatural power. Death is so powerful that he is one of the few beings that can enter Lucifer's Cage without the need of the Rings of the Horsemen. Death is also powerful enough to remove and/or transfer the Mark of Cain. He even created an eclipse by realigning the Solar System.* Resurrection - As he is literally the bringer of death, Death can resurrect all forms of life back to any state he so desires. He could bring multiple people back to life just with his passing. However, as it violates the Natural Order, he almost never does.* Memory Manipulation - Death was able to suppress Sam's horrific memories of being in Hell by placing the memories behind a temporary wall he created in his mind.* Teleportation - He can teleport himself anywhere in the universe instantly. He could even teleport into and leave Lucifer's Cage without the need of the rings.* Tactile Necrokinesis - He can instantly kill anything or anyone with a touch. After being bumped into by a man walking in the opposite direction to him, Death brushed his coat with his hand where the man had walked into him, killing him instantly.
* Thermokinesis - Death caused his scythe to burn red-hot in order to make Dean drop it.
Manipulation - Death is able to create cataclysmic events so harsh that he can wipe the Earth clean of any and all life, like he did during Noah's flood. He was going to wipe out an entire state with massive weather anomalies on Lucifer's orders, but later decided not to do it. 
Despite rivaling God's power, even Death has a few weaknesses and can even be killed, though only by one method: his own
Scythe. * [[Spells #Death_2|Binding spell]] - Death can be effectively bound. God kept him imprisoned beneath the Earth for thousands of years for unknown reasons. Dean and Sam were able to use a spell given to them by [[Crowley]] to bind him in an attempt to get him to kill [[Godstiel|Castiel]], who had dubbed himself the new God.
* [[Death's Scythe]] - Death can be killed by his own scythe.
