Page 1 of 5I was more than halfway through my own list of monsters I wanted to see in season 6 when I checked in to TWFB and saw that Elle2 had created an excellent list of monsters she wanted to see in season 6! Thankfully, I was writing about things we haven't seen yet, while she mostly chose things that she wanted to see again, and never the twain shall meet. Great minds think alike, sometimes. And since I didn't want to be influenced by anyone's comments, I did not read any comment posts. If there are things on here that anyone suggested in those posts, I promise I did not try to steal your idea and not credit you. There's only so many monsters to go around! But if you did post about the same monster after Elle2's list, tell me so in the comments and we can talk about how awesome we both are for thinking of the same thing!
Sam and Dean have tackled their fair share of monsters and spirits and other supernatural evils in five seasons. Amazingly, there are still some evils they haven't faced. And since season 6 is going to be more reminiscent of season 1 and is going to focus on monsters, I came up with a list of 22 supernatural things Sam and Dean haven't hunted yet that I want to see them take on in season 6. Why 22? Well, one for each episode!
Most of these are pretty familiar monsters, but I'll still put in a description for them anyway just in case there are things you haven't heard of. And I realize that some of these things would be silly to fight against, but Supernatural is great at taking lore and legend and making it fit within the parameters of the show without being too fantastical, unless they're being fantastical on purpose. Many thanks to Wikipedia, without which the research for this article would have been much more tedious. Without further ado, I present the "Top 22 Previously Unseen Supernatural Beings I Want In Season 6."
Special Bonus - Zombie alligator
The What: It's an alligator...that's a zombie. That's it, really. This is the Suze special.
How It Could Work In An Episode: Honestly? I have no idea. Maybe if there's an episode with human zombies, one could have a zombie alligator as a pet. Or Sam and Dean can take a trip to a zombie zoo. All I know is there has to be room for a zombie alligator in ONE of the episodes this year.
Special bonus #2 - Cthulhu
The What: Cthulhu is an extremely powerful creature created by H.P. Lovecraft in 1926. He first appeared in the short story "The Call of Cthulhu" in 1928 and has spawned his own mythos, the Cthulhu mythos.
How It Could Work In An Episode: It couldn't, really. There's no way two hunters could take on Cthulhu and survive. But a girl can dream, can't she? Cthulhu and Supernatural together at last!
First off, great list!! I love that you've included pictures to give us an idea of what these things are supposed to look like.
Personally, I love your idea for the Imp...that would be hilarous! As for the Golem, that too would be cool (and yes, thank you for the clarification.. .I hesitated!)
Great list and cool ideas you've put together. I'm up for anything in Season 6 and perhaps the creative minds behind Supernatural will include some or portions of some of what you have on your list...we can always dream.
Looking forward to Part 2.
Sam and Dean could investigate weird goings on at Miskatonic U. GRIN.
Cthulu would be awesome.
Definitely on board with the Zombie Alligator.
Nymph? There was a female Nymph in the picture? Thatâ€™s funny I only saw a man.:shock:;-)
As for the Black Shuck, Iâ€™ve seen these beaties before hanging around my campsite. We call them Raccoons.
I love the Imp idea. It would be quite interesting to have the Imp and Gabriel competing with each other. (I loved Gabriel/Trickst er and I am holding onto the delusional belief that he was resurrected by his Father/God).
Thanks Ardeospina, canâ€™t wait for part two.
Of course I am rooting for the Zombiegator, and I would so love to see the Medusa (please cast Uma Thurman again for that part, she looked fabulous as that Gorgon in that Percy movie, I'd love to have that gorgeous face there again)... But the Golem just creeps me out, always has.
HOw about one of our Slavic baddies, like Baba Jaga? Or the good old classic Nosferatu ('I neverrrrrr drrrrink wyne' :lol:-)
Thanks so much for this fun piece and the research you put into it! Love, Jas
Though the rest receive a big thumbs up as well. I love this list so very much please writers pay careful attention thank you.
My favs of this part are:
Nymph, black shuk, imp, mummy's curse (could be done in a BTVS "Inca mummy girl" kind of way), sasquatch (rotfl-thats just too funny...althoug h like someone said, Dean did say they weren't real...), golem
Kinda on the fence with Medusa. could be cool though
Thumbs up for the Jersey Devil. I think the X-files did an episode about him.
Another Tall Tales type episode would be great using Imps. Perfect tale to bring back Gabriel.
In fact, most of these would be great if only Supernatural had an unlimited budget for the CGI.
The nymph would be good. Not much CGI needed. She could cast her spell over one of the boys, leaving the other angsting how to combat the spell and defeat her. (And maybe she could manage to get the shirts off of one of the boys)
Cthulhu would be too powerful for the boys, but there are many Lovecraftian creations that could be cool.
Still rooting for the Chucky doll episode. Sorry, Jas.
Valkyrie, you're right. Dean did say Bigfoot didn't exist. But they also didn't think vampires were real until their father told them they were, like Bevie said, and no one had ever seen an angel before they showed up back on earth, so it could just be that no one has ever seen them. Or maybe they could end up being some sort of mutated shapeshifter. And the other half of the list is already done, so I'm sure it will be posted in the near future. Keep checking back!
Elle2, thanks and you're welcome! The pictures were also partly selfish as I needed to get a good visual image to go with what I was writing about. Imps would be too fun, and I am really enamored with the golem thing. So many shades of gray there to play with.
Tigershire, yes, please! Let's have them do that. I would also settle for them playing a round of Arkham Horror with Cass and Bobby.
Karen, raccoons as Black Shuck...it all makes sense! My husband and I go camping annually with some of his coworkers, and this year, a raccoon got into someone's tent, drank two Red Bulls, stole a bag of marshmallows, and took the marshmallows up a tree to eat. We saw him run up there, and watched as he ate a few, dropped the bag, and had a major sugar crash. Raccoons are insane. An Imp vs. Gabriel showdown sounds awesome. I vote for that!
Jas, thanks! Zombie gator would be too fun. Maybe he can live in the trunk of the Impala or something. Baba Yaga is definitely making an appearance on the list, fear not! But I did not even think of Nosferatu! *face palm* That guy is insanely creepy.
Randal, thanks! I am not at all surprised that Cthulhu was your favorite. Nope. Not one bit.
Daldos, Dean would probably hate the harpy because it would steal his food! I like the idea of an Inca Mummy Girl, too. Good one.
Bevie, the CGI budget would definitely have to be stretched for some of these. You're so right. Or they could just pull a "Wendigo" on us and barely show the creature! That can be just as scary. If the nymph shows up in an episode, she had better get someone's shirt off. I think she loses membership in the nymph club if she doesn't.
Also, a Chucky episode? Creepy! If they could get Brad Dourif to do the voice, I'm in.
Laughed at the sasquatch one. Since it is one of the names for Sam. Would be really funny if they would run across one.
As for the Jersey Devil, wouldn't you love to see our boys interact with Snookie and that gang from Jersey Shore? The mind reels. . . . .
Paintgirl770, thank you, too. Imps seems to be the popular choice for an episode, and I can't say I disagree! It would be too fun. It's funny you mention Snooki because Jenniffer, a site admin, had the exact same thought when she saw The Jersey Devil!
Evelyn, thanks to you, too. I had no idea there was a golem fanfic. That does sound like a pretty good premise for an episode. Bonus points if the Golem turned out to be like the Golem in one of the Simpsons Treehouse of Horror episodes, too.
