The original Death also appeared to have a relaxed approach to reaping, allowing Sam and Dean to constantly be resurrected despite the consequences to the natural order. As well as allowing various rogue reapers to operate. With the reaper [[Billie]] taking the mantle of Death, she has instituted a no direct interference policy to all reapers. However, she has been shown to make very rare exceptions, bringing Dean back when the notebooks in [[Death's Reading Room]] stated that it was not his time to die and teleporting Sam, Castiel, Jack and Michael to the Bunker to save their lives.
[[Chuck Shurley]] admits to Sam and Dean that he enjoyed the old Death better than Billie, claiming she involves herself too much.
===Powers and abilities===
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.
