Villain Overview
You know why God cast me down? Because I loved Him…more than anything. And then God created…you. The little…hairless apes. And then He asked all of us to bow down before you, to love you more than Him. And I said, "Father, I can't." I said, "These human beings are flawed, murderous." And for that, God had Michael cast me into Hell. Now, tell me, does the punishment fit the crime? Especially when I was right? Look at what six billion of you have done to this thing, and how many of you blame me for it.
~ Lucifer to Dean Winchester.
Yes, and you'd do anything to save him, and he'd do anything to save you, and that is the problem. Because of this, you're so overcome by guilt that you can't stand to lose Dean again, and he could never lose you. And so instead of choosing the world, you choose each other, no matter how many innocent people die.
~ Lucifer to Sam Winchester.

Lucifer, also known as Satan and the Devil, is the central antagonist of the TV series Supernatural.

He was one of Sam's and Dean's arch-nemeses and initially portrayed as the main antagonist of the whole series until his downfall at Season 13, while God reveals his true nature at Season 14 and take over the role.

He serves as the overarching antagonist of Seasons 1 to 4 (due to controlling Lilith and the other villains), as the main antagonist of Season 5, as the secondary antagonist of Seasons 7 (as a hallucination and alongside the leviathan Edgar) and 11, as one of the two main antagonists in Season 12 (along with Arthur Ketch), as the central antagonist of Season 13 and as the background antagonist of Season 14 and 15.

He was portrayed by Mark Pellegrino in most of his appearances, Jared Padalecki when he is possessing Sam in "The End" and "Swan Song," Misha Collins when he is possessing Castiel starting in Season 11's "The Devil in the Details," Rick Springfield in a handful of episodes in Season 12, and David Chisum in Season 12's "LOTUS."


Lucifer was once the most attractive and beloved angel in all of existence; God loved Lucifer the most of all His angels. Because of this, he was very egotistical and prideful. When humanity was created, he was unwilling to accept no longer being God's favorite, and when God commanded all angels to love His new creation more than Himself, Lucifer refused and was cast into Hell.

Being cast out of Heaven enraged Lucifer, so he struck back by tempting and twisting the soul of a human woman, Lilith. After completely stripping her of her humanity, her soul was transformed into the very first demon. Because of this unforgivable and blasphemous profanity against God, Lucifer was further punished by being placed into an additional solitary imprisonment within Hell. He remained there in isolation for millennia. Lucifer's long-term goal was to eventually be freed from the cage, eradicate humanity, and restore Earth to its original "untainted" glory.

Crowley once referred to him as a petulant and uncooperative child with daddy issues and suggested that Lucifer also only uses demons as servants and would eradicate them as well because, despite them being his creations, he considers demons to be even less worthy than humans; proof of this is shown when, after several demons sacrifice themselves as part of a ritual to summon Death, Lucifer casually states to a shocked Sam that "they're just demons."

Lucifer claims that he never lies because he doesn't have to. He promises both his vessels, Nick (his "backup" vessel) and Sam (his predestined, true vessel), that he will be honest with them. He also says that he sympathizes with his vessels, both of whom are victims like himself. He goes to some lengths to get Sam's acceptance, sparing Dean's life once and allowing Sam revenge against some of the demons that controlled his life. However, Lucifer has been proven to mislead on occasion, suggesting that this is more of a ploy to gain trust rather than an actual commitment or he bends this rule when he sees it to his advantage.

Lucifer also shows concern for his fellow angels. He captures Castiel and admires the angel's loyalty in refusing to reveal the presence of his human friends; when he invites Castiel to join him and Castiel refuses, Lucifer respects his decision. He is remorseful when forced to kill Gabriel, and disappointed when Michael berates him during their confrontation in Stull Cemetery. When preparing to fight his older brother in their predestined battle, Lucifer pleads with Michael to "walk off the chessboard," but Michael remains determined to fulfill his destiny and serve God. Even so, when Castiel molotovs Michael, Lucifer is outraged by the attack on his brother and obliterates Castiel.

Gabriel criticizes Lucifer, describing his actions as "one big temper tantrum". Death makes a similar observation, characterizing Lucifer as a "bratty child." Nonetheless, Lucifer sees himself as a tragic figure who was punished for being right. He refuses to accept any blame for his actions and suggests that God intentionally made him the way he is, once asserting that "God wanted the Devil".

Lucifer is also highly cruel, barbaric, and treacherous to those who get in his way and, despite his claims of being the victim, he has no qualms about killing anything or anyone, even if he has no true reason for doing so. For example, he barbarically massacred a majority of the pagan gods simply because they plotted against him, despite the fact that they posed no real threat to him.

Powers and Abilities

  • Nigh-Omnipotence: Lucifer, being the second Archangel, is unimaginably powerful, quite possibly the second most powerful being ever created by God, slightly surpassed only by Michael among Angels and far more powerful than not only lesser angels and other beings but also considerably more powerful than his younger Archangel siblings. Although inferior to Michael, Lucifer is by no means incapable of battling Michael, as he can hold his ground enough that a battle between the two strongest Archangels would devastate the Earth. Even while not in his perfect vessel, he could still effortlessly slay very ancient Pagans and casually overpower Gabriel, nearly killing him. The immensity of his power was shown by how any vessel not his true one would quickly decay and even by consuming tons of demon blood, it would only delay the inevitable destruction of his vessel for a certain amount of time. Zachariah described Lucifer's power as being vast in ways that defy description. In Season 10, it was revealed that Lucifer once possessed the Mark of Cain after contributing to the defeat of the Darkness alongside God, and with the Mark augmenting his powers, it can be assumed at the time he was the most powerful Angel. Holy Fire and Enochian Sigils are proven to be ineffective against him whereas it could affect his younger archangel brethren, as while he could be briefly contained by it, he was able to fairly quickly break out. While he could do nothing to escape the Cage, he was still capable of projecting himself to a limited extent and after the Cage was damaged, he was powerful enough to psychically reach out to Sam. While holding enough power to restrain the Darkness alongside his fellow Archangels to allow God to overpower her and having managed to conceal himself from her, Lucifer has been proven to be powerless against his aunt despite his claims of being able to defeat the Darkness, which has already been easily conceivable to be a lie as it took his father, Michael, Gabriel and Raphael alongside Lucifer to beat her and therefore Lucifer is significantly weaker than her. Even with the Hand of God, Lucifer was not able to even harm Amara and he was soundly defeated and rendered powerless as she heavily tortured him. God also proved his superiority to Lucifer by completely negating his powers effortlessly and it has already been implied by Castiel that God can easily defeat him at whim when he stated that if God were helping them, they would not need to devastate Earth to win the Apocalypse. Even while weakened by having most of his grace depleted, he was still powerful enough to break out of a particularly powerful warding and easily overpower lesser demons and Angels, as he claimed that Duma and her henchmen could not defeat him and he later soundly overwhelmed Anael. Even the Seraphim Castiel was unable to defeat him when he was weakened even further and had to escape. After regaining a lot of his power, he was able to exorcise demons and obliterate humans with a snap of his fingers and despite being weakened due to having his Grace used as a source, he was able to break out of a powerful binding spell eventually. After fully recovering his powers, Lucifer has once again become able to easily resurrect Sam, obliterate Angels and knock Michael off his feet. With his son's grace super-charging him, Lucifer becomes much stronger than ever, to the point that he is deemed capable of ending and recreating the whole universe within a matter of days and the Alternate Michael's full power proved to be incapable of overpowering him whereas previously he was soundly beaten, requiring outside intervention to kill him.
  • Immortality: Lucifer has an indefinitely long lifespan. Time does not degrade his form, like with all celestial beings. He's unaffected by diseases and toxins. He does not tire, and does not require food, water, oxygen, or sleep. On one occasion, Cas clearly says about killing Lucifer, "It's foolish, it can't be done," and later calls the task "insane." However, an Archangel blade can kill him, as can God or Michael.
  • Angelic Possession: Even Lucifer is required to use a vessel on Earth, as Zachariah emphasizes, and he needs the vessel's permission, like with all angels. Because of the immensity of his power, he must use a vessel descended from Cain and Abel, or it will begin to decay.
  • Invulnerability: Lucifer is impervious to all damage, except when harmed by his Archangel brethren, penetrated with an Archangel blade, or by God. Kali, the most powerful of the pagan gods at the gathering of the pagan gods, tried to harm him with a pyrokinetic attack, but it had no effect and Lucifer simply smiled at her attempt to harm him. The Colt somehow caused him initial pain, but he soon recovered. It should be noted that his temporary vessel was decaying at the time. With Sam as his vessel, Lucifer is much more powerful, and it's probable he'd be completely impervious to the Colt.
  • Cosmic Awareness: Lucifer has immense awareness of everything. He knows spells capable of binding the Horsemen to him, but he, according to Chuck, didn't know about the Impala.
  • Superhuman Strength: Lucifer has slaughtered pagan deities with his bare hands. As Gabriel predicted, it became a blood bath. Lucifer went on a rampage in which he brutally ripped the other gods to shreds, beating them to death, and tearing off their limbs through sheer force. He was able to knock out the powerful pagan god, Kali, with one punch. As the second oldest Archangel, he's significantly stronger than other angels. He once effortlessly threw Dean and later literally beat him to a bloody pulp, nearly killing him. Chuck indicated that Dean only survived because Castiel healed him. He was also able to causally overpower his younger brother Gabriel.
  • Regeneration: If Lucifer's vessel receives any damage, the wound will heal instantaneously. When shot with the Colt, for example, the bullet hole healed in under a minute. Interestingly, the ability does not reverse the decay caused to Nick by Lucifer's power.
  • Shapeshifting: Interestingly, Lucifer could change his form when outside of a vessel; he's the only Archangel to have done so. Also, when in a vessel, Lucifer can change his shape into any person he wants, like Gabriel; Lucifer also took the form of a Reaper to lure Castiel away.
  • Teleportation: Lucifer can travel anywhere instantly, without occupying the space in between.
  • Telekinesis: Lucifer could impart kinetic energy on matter with his mind. He was extremely proficient, being able to rip pagan deities apart.
  • Dream Walking: Lucifer has the ability to enter a person's dreams. Even without a human vessel, Lucifer was a able to speak with Nick in his dreams while taking on the appearance of his deceased wife. He demonstrated this again when he spoke to Sam in his dreams while taking on the appearance of Jessica Moore.
  • Cryokinesis: Lucifer can manipulate and generate cold. He froze a pane of glass by merely breathing on it.
  • Supernatural Perception: Lucifer can perceive the form of beings invisible to the human eye. Lucifer was able to see the true form of Death when he raised the Horseman out of his prison.
  • Aerokinesis: When Lucifer was released, he altered the weather by creating severe winds.
  • Molecular Combustion: Lucifer killed Castiel by speeding up his molecules to the point where it caused him to explode simply by snapping his fingers.
  • Essokinesis: Although never displayed, Lucifer reminded Gabriel that he taught him everything he knew about using this power, when the latter tried to use it to kill him.
  • Spell Casting: Lucifer was able to bind the Horsemen to his presence with a spell, controlling their actions to a moderate degree. He also performed a ritual to release Death from his coffin.
  • Resurrection: Lucifer can easily reaninimate dead people. He is also said to be able to bring back deceased angels.
  • Terrakinesis: Lucifer could generate earthquakes with ease.
  • Precognition: Lucifer could see the future, but not the whole picture; he knew he would possess Sam in Detroit and told him the first time he met him.


You people misunderstand me. You call me "Satan" and "Devil," but…do you know my crime? I loved God too much. And for that, He betrayed me, punished me. Just as He's punished you. After all, how could God stand idly by while that man broke into your home and butchered your family in their beds? […] There are only two rational answers, Nick: Either He's sadistic, or He simply doesn't care. You're angry. You have every right to be angry. I am angry, too. That's why I want to find Him, hold Him accountable for His actions. Just because He created us doesn't mean He can toy with us like playthings.
~ To Nick, "Sympathy for the Devil"
I'm sorry. I can't. But I can give you the next best thing. God did this to you, Nick. And I can give you justice. Peace.
~ To Nick, "Sympathy for the Devil"
Contrary to popular belief, I don't lie. I don't need to.
~ To Nick, "Sympathy for the Devil"
You are a hard one to find, Sam. Harder than most humans. I don't suppose you'd tell me where you are?
~ To Sam, "Free to Be You and Me"
I'm so sorry, Sam, I, I really am, but Nick here is just an improvisation. Plan B. He can barely contain me without spontaneously combusting. […] Why do you think you were in that chapel? You're the one, Sam. You're my vessel. My true vessel.
~ To Sam, "Free to Be You and Me"
Sam. My heart breaks for you. The weight on your shoulders, what you've done, what you still have to do--it is more than anyone could bear. If there was some other way…but there isn't. I will never lie to you. I will never trick you. But you will say "yes" to me.
~ To Sam, "Free to Be You and Me"
Oh. Hello, Dean. Aren't you a surprise. You've come a long way to see this, haven't you?
~ To Dean while possessing Sam in 2014, "The End"
Kill you? Don't you think that would be a little…redundant?
~ To Dean, after having killed Dean's future self, "The End"
I'm sorry. It must be painful, speaking to me in this…shape. But it had to be your brother. It had to be.
~ To Dean, "The End"
Why would I want to destroy this stunning thing? Beautiful in a trillion different ways. The last perfect handiwork of God.
~ To Dean, "The End"
I like you, Dean. I get what the other angels see in you.
~ To Dean, "The End"
I know you won't. I know you won't say "yes" to Michael, either. And I know you won't kill Sam. Whatever you do, you will always end up here. Whatever choices you make, whatever details you alter, we will always end up…here. I win. So, I win.
~ To Dean, "The End"
Loyalty. Such a nice quality to see in this day and age.
~ To Castiel, "Abandon All Hope…"
Castiel, I don't understand why you're fighting me, of all the angels. […] I rebelled, I was cast out; you rebelled, you were cast out. Almost all of Heaven wants to see me dead, and if they succeed, guess what? You're their new public enemy number one. We're on the same side, like it or not, so why not just serve your own best interests? Which, in this case, just happen to be mine?
~ To Castiel, "Abandon All Hope…"
Oh, Sam, you don't need that gun here. You know I'd never hurt you. Not really.
~ To Sam, "Abandon All Hope…"
Don't feel too bad, Sam. There's only five things in all of Creation that that gun can't kill, and I just happen to be one of them. But if you give me a minute, I'm almost done.
~ To Sam, after Dean shooting him with the Colt doesn't kill Lucifer, "Abandon All Hope…"
You know, I don't suppose you'd just say "yes" here and now? End this whole tiresome discussion? That's crazy, right?
~ To Sam, "Abandon All Hope…"
Oh, I don't know, Sam. I think it will. I think it'll happen soon. Within six months. And I think it'll happen in Detroit.
~ To Sam, "Abandon All Hope…"
That's good, Sam. You keep fanning that fire in your belly. All that pent-up rage. I'm gonna need it.
~ To Sam, "Abandon All Hope…"
I know, it's awful, but these Horsemen are so demanding. So it was women and children first. I know what you must think of me, Sam. But I have to do this. I have to. You of all people should understand.
~ To Sam, "Abandon All Hope…"
I was a son. A brother, like you, a younger brother, and I had an older brother who I loved. Idolized, in fact. And one day, I went to him and I begged him to stand with me, and Michael...Michael turned on me. Called me a "freak." A "monster." And then he beat me down. All because I was different. Because I had a mind of my own. Tell me something, Sam. Any of this sound familiar?
~ To Sam, "Abandon All Hope…"
Anyway, you'll have to excuse me. Midnight is calling and I have a ritual to finish. Don't go anywhere. Not that you could if you would.
~ To Sam, "Abandon All Hope…"
What? They're just demons.
~ To Sam, after sacrificing his own demons in a ritual to raise Death, "Abandon All Hope…"
Oh, hello, Death.
~ To Death after summoning him, "Abandon All Hope…"
You know, I never understood you pagans. You're all such...petty little things. Always fighting, always happy to sell out your own kind. No wonder you forfeited this planet to us. You...are worse than humans. You're worse than demons. And yet you claim to be gods!
~ To Mercury, before killing him, "Hammer of the Gods"
And they call me "prideful."
~ After killing Mercury, "Hammer of the Gods"
Of course you can't. You didn't say "Mother, may I?"
~ To Balder, "Hammer of the Gods"
No one gives us the right; we take it.
~ To Balder, as he kills him, "Hammer of the Gods"
Over a girl. Gabriel, really? I mean I knew you were slumming, but I hope you didn't catch anything.
~ To Gabriel, after he stops him from killing Kali, "Hammer of the Gods"
So you're willing to die for a pile of cockroaches. Why?
~ To Gabriel after he declares allegiance to humans, "Hammer of the Gods"
They are broken. Flawed! Abortions.
~ To Gabriel, "Hammer of the Gods"
I know you think you're doing the right thing, Gabriel. But I know where your heart truly lies. […] Here. Amateur hocus pocus. Don't forget, you learned all your tricks from me, little brother.
~ To Gabriel, before killing him, "Hammer of the Gods"
Hey, guys. So nice of you to drop in.
~ To the Winchesters, "Swan Song"
Sorry if it's a bit chilly. Most people think I burn hot. It's actually quite the opposite.
~ To the Winchesters, "Swan Song"
Help me understand something, guys. I mean, stomping through my front door is…a tad suicidal, don't you think?
~ To the Winchesters, "Swan Song"
I know you have the rings, Sam. […] The Horsemen's rings? The magic keys to my cage? Ring a bell? Come on, Sam. I've never lied to you. You could at least pay me the same respect! It's okay. I'm not mad. A wrestling match inside your noggin…I like the idea. Just you and me, one round, no tricks. You win, you jump in the hole. I win…well, then I win. What do you say, Sam? A fiddle of gold against your soul says I'm better than you.
~ To Sam, "Swan Song"
I was just messing with you. Sammy's long gone.
~ To Dean, after taking control of Sam's body, "Swan Song"
Sam. Come on. I can feel you…scratching away in there. Look…I'll take the gag off, okay? You got me all wrong, kiddo. I'm not the bad guy here.
~ To Sam, "Swan Song"
Such anger…Young Skywalker. Who are you really angry with? Me? Or that face in the mirror?
~ To Sam, "Swan Song"
I've been waiting for you…for a long, long time. Come on, Sam. You have to admit--you can feel it, right? The exhilaration. And you know why that is? Because we're two halves made whole. MFEO. Literally.
~ To Sam, "Swan Song"
I'm inside your grapefruit, Sam. You can't lie to me. I see it all: How odd you always felt, how…out of place in that…family of yours. And why shouldn't you have? They were foster care at best. I'm your real family. […] All those times you ran away, you weren't running from them; you were running towards me. This doesn't have to be a bad thing, you know. I let Dean live, didn't I? I want him to live. I'll bring your folks back, too. I want you to be happy, Sam.
~ To Sam, "Swan Song"
And that's your friend Doug from that time in East Lansing. And Rachel…your prom date. Sam Winchester, this is your life. Azazel's gang watching you since you were a rugrat, jerking you around like a dog on a leash. I know how you feel about them. Me, too. So, what do you say you and I blow off a little steam?
~ To Sam, "Swan Song"
It's good to see you, Michael.
~ To Michael, "Swan Song"
What if it's not my fault? […] Think about it. Dad made everything. Which means He made me who I am! God wanted the Devil.
~ To Michael, "Swan Song"
We're going to kill each other. And for what? One of Dad's tests. And we don't even know the answer. We're brothers. Let's just walk off the chessboard.
~ To Michael, "Swan Song"
No one makes Dad do anything. He is doing this to us.
~ To Michael, "Swan Song"
If that's the way it's got to be…then I'd like to see you try.
~ To Michael, preparing to fight his brother, "Swan Song"
Even for you, this is a whole new mountain of stupid.
~ To Dean after he drives up, "Swan Song"
Castiel… did you just Molotov my brother with holy fire?
~ To Castiel after he sends Michael away using holy fire, "Swan Song"
No one dicks with Michael but me.
~ To Castiel, before causing him to explode, "Swan Song"
You know…I tried to be nice…for Sammy's sake. But you…are such a pain…in my ass.
~ To Dean, "Swan Song"
Oh, he's in here, all right. And he's gonna feel the snap of your bones. Every single one. We're gonna take our time.
~ To Dean, as he beats him up, "Swan Song"
Hi, Sam. Long time, no spooning.
~ To Sam, "Meet the New Boss"
Sam, this isn't you going guano. Everything else is. […] I have to say, I think this is my best torture yet: Make you believe that you're free and then…yank the wool off of your eyes. You never left, Sam. You're still in the cage…with me.
~ To Sam, "Meet the New Boss"
Right. You think this fruit bat fever dream is reality? You come back, I'm sorry, with no soul like some peppy American Psycho, till Saint Dean glues you back together again by buying you some magic amnesia. You're real. I'm very real. Everything between is what we call set dressing.
~ To Sam, "Hello, Cruel World"
You're my bunkmate, buddy. You're my little bitch, in every sense of the term.
~ To Sam, "Hello, Cruel World"
Oh, he wants to hold your widdle hand. How sweet.
~ To Sam, about Dean, "Hello, Cruel World"
You know, I really think Price William has found the right girl. What do you think?
~ To Sam, while reading the newspaper, "Hello, Cruel World"
End it? This? You not knowing what's real, the paint slowly peeling off your walls, come on, man, this is the sweet spot! Why would I end it? Not like we got HBO in the Pit. All I got is you, floating over the coals with half a hope that you're gonna figure it all out. There's only one way to figure it out, Sam. It's up to you. It ends when you can't take it anymore. I think that's maybe why we're cleaning our guns.
~ To Sam, trying to convince him to commit suicide, "Hello, Cruel World"
You poor clueless son of a bitch. […] Your world is whatever I want it to be, understand?
~ To Sam, "Hello, Cruel World"
Now we're getting there. Pinocchio's seeing his strings.
~ "Hello, Cruel World"
Want to point that gun at someone useful? Try your face.
~ To Sam, "Hello, Cruel World"
Want to know the truth? Want to skip to the last page of the book? You know where to aim.
~ To Sam, "Hello, Cruel World"
Smell you, Florence Nightingale.
~ To Dean after he helps Sam discern reality, "Hello, Cruel World"
That's what I'm talking about, Sam: Real interaction again. I miss that. The rapier wit, the wittier rape. Come on. I'll be good. I'll even help you solve your little Nancy Drew mystery or whatever.
~ To Sam, "Repo Man"
Hmm, a cell phone scrambler. But, Luci, those are illegal!
~ To Sam after he finds a cell phone scrambler in Jeffrey's apartment, "Repo Man"
Why? To summon a demon, jackass.
~ To Sam after he finds a demon summoning spell, "Repo Man"
'Iay, caramba! Imi cabeza!'
~ To Sam after he gets hit on the head by Nora Havelock, "Repo Man"
Sam, shake her up. She knows what happened to Dean. Get this stupid cow to focus, will you?
~ To Sam as he questions Nora, "Repo Man"
You really knocked the cork out of her pie-hole.
~ To Sam about Nora, "Repo Man"
Yeah, look at that. Something's definitely different now, isn't it? You let me in. You wanted me, partner. So you think you can use your little tricks to banish me again…like that? No. I do believe I've got you, bunk buddy. Got my finger wiggling around in your brainpan. Come on, Sammy! Come on! Say it with me now. GOOD MORNING, VIETNAM!
~ Taunting Sam after he fails to cause Lucifer to vanish, "Repo Man"
No, he's telling the truth. Burned through that last beer hours ago. Right about the time Dean passed out. Come on, Sam. Tell the nice tweaker. You'd be sleeping by now if the Devil would just leave you alone for five seconds. Stupid Satan. Chasing you all the way to… Where the hell are we?
~ To Sam, "The Born-Again Identity"
Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Okay, now, this one I could have. […] Sets unrealistic goals. Check. But trouble keeping healthy relationships? Not so sure about that one. Thoughts?
~ To Sam, reading a book, "The Born-Again Identity"
You know, you're actually keeping it together better than I thought. Kind of…the way someone pinned under a bus keeps it together.
~ To Sam while tormenting him, "The Born-Again Identity"
Sammy. What'll be today? Maggots again…or, uh, tapeworm?
~ To Sam, "The Born-Again Identity"
I see that third little pig was smart. Went out and got some bricks.
~ To Sam, reading Three Little Pigs, "The Born-Again Identity"
~ To Castiel after he takes on Sam's hallucinations, "The Born-Again Identity"
My old friend, Crowley. […] You're too kind…to yourself.
~ To Crowley after being summoned, "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"
Sam Winchester. My old roomie. Hug it out?
~ To Sam, "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"
I've got to say, I'm a little in the dark about this meeting. Am I up for parole? Time off for bad behavior?
~ To Sam, "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"
Oh, that leads me to my next question. Where's the Big Burrito Himself? Where's God in all of this? […] What? Caught the fun bus out of town? Figures.
~ To Sam, "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"
Get out of town! Seriously? Who'd have thunk it!
~ To Sam after he informs him that God sent him visions, "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"
I completely get why you came to me. You can't ignore God, right? God says "jump," everybody says "how high?"
~ To Sam, "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"
Well, I did help Dad seal up the Darkness all those years ago. She's quite a force. Determined to take over everything, even back then. Prone to tantrums. I can see why Pop is laying low.
~ To Sam, "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"
I know. I know, Sam. It's a lot to ask. But desperate times require desperate measures.
~ To Sam after implying he wants to possess him, "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"
Okay, hold on there a second, cowboy. Take a breath. You have been working with Crowley. You passed "certifiable" three off-ramps ago. And look, I'm no fan of the Ruler of the Universe, but here I am, ready to pitch in. […] Sam, why do you think God sent you to me? To get my help, which I only now just offered. Sam, your visions were the Word of God. You can't say no to that.
~ To Sam, trying to persuade him to let him possess his body again, "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"
Together again.
~ To Sam after teleporting him into his cage, "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"
Well, that would make so much sense if it was God that was doing the talking. You see, Sam, when the Darkness descended, the impact on Hell was massive. The Cage was damaged and, through the fissures, I was able to reach out. It wasn't God inside your head, Sam. It was me. So you see, He's not with you. He's never been with you. It was always just me. So I guess I am your only hope.
~ To Sam, "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"
Ah, well, settle in there, buddy. Hey, roomie… upper bunk, lower bunk, or you wanna share?
~ To Sam, "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"
I could… I probably should execute you. I could really, really use my imagination. But I'm feeling generous today. So one of you is gonna walk out that door and the other will be laying dead on the ground. You choose. (…) Or you could do that and I could murder you both and end all life in the universe. Remake it in my image, better than Dad ever could. I'm thinking… fire-breathing dragons. Sassy talking robots. I might give humans another chance if they know their place and worship me because I've earned it. But hey, it'll probably take a few days to unravel the universe. Maybe… seven, ten days tops. Maybe, just maybe one of you can stop me. Maybe. Well, let's see. Clock's ticking guys.

  • Though it is said that the Lucifer vision which was manifested from Sam's memories of Hell and tormented him in Season 7 was a mere hallucination, Mark Pellegrino, Lucifer's primary actor, felt otherwise. Pellegrino said that the Lucifer hallucination which tormented Sam in Season 7 might not have really been a hallucination, but also a form of Lucifer's extension planted in Sam's mind.
  • Lucifer's role in Season 7 is similar to that of the Joker's role in Arkham Knight; even though they were hallucinations, they still served as major antagonists and managed to make a huge impact.
  • His death is similar to General Grievous, as flames shoot out of their eyes.
  • A parallel version of Lucifer existed in the Apocalypse World that Michael comes from, in which the latter was victorious in killing his brother. However, Michael reveals in season 14 that he and his brother hoped that God would show up and give them answers on his disappearance, but this never happened, and further fueled Michael's goal in destroying each of God's different worlds, and potentially even God himself.
