There have been many, many, injuries, especially if your name is Sam Winchester. Here's a few of the more memorable ones, in no particular order.
Knee to the Groin - "After School Special"
Just the phrase "Knee to the groin" alone should cause some cringing, especially for you guys!
Broken Leg/Suffocation to Death by Angels ("Sympathy For The Devil")
Zachariah was onto something. A broken leg won't deter Sam? Fine, let's see how he does without lungs!
Bleeding Out From A Sliced Open Artery - "Jump The Shark"
(Photo removed because it's too gruesome) - You can see it in our photo gallery:
The ghoul was right Sam. Struggling just makes it bleed faster.
Knife in the Back - "All Hell Breaks Loose Part 1"
Yeah, this one kind of set off a chain of events that to this day are burning The Winchesters.
Vicious Beating by Clowns - "Plucky Pennywhistle's Magical Menagerie"
Come on, admit it. The glitter bomb was a total payoff, wasn't it?
Struck by lightning - "Wishful Thinking"
Whoever said death is a career move never met Sam Winchester. Too many do-overs I guess.
Major Facial Damage by Pissed Off Demon - "Devil's Trap"
I have no idea why Sam isn't a vegetable after beatings like this.
Fingernail Ripped Off - "A Very Supernatural Christmas"
This one still gives me this heebie geebies. Yikes!
Shot to Death - "Dark Side of The Moon"
Is it so wrong of me to say this is the prettiest bloody corpse you've ever seen?
Nutcracker! - "Changing Channels"
I think this visual says it all.
Skull Cracked By Tire Iron ("Hello Cruel World," "The Girl Next Door")
Considering this led to a grand mal seizure in the ambulance in the next scene, double bonus!
Beaten Bloody and Unconscious (then beaten some more after that) by Dean - "You Can't Handle The Truth"
Remind me never to get on Dean's wrong side.
Bullet Wound to the Torso - "Mystery Spot"
Stitching up your own wound is pretty badass! This can also be applied to Sam stitching up the gash in his arm in "I Know What You Did Last Summer."
Sets Himself On Fire and Then Knocks Himself Out - "Bad Day at Black Rock"
To think this isn't even the worst of it. After this he's duct taped to a chair and beaten.
Impaled By Pipe, Suffers Premature Death - "The Song Remains The Same"
That's gotta hurt.
A Drive By Nazi Necromancer Darting - "Everybody Hates Hitler"
Yes, this is as bizarre as it sounds. Sam wasn't at all well though.
