John Winchester is a character from Supernatural: The Anime Series, a Japanese remake from the first two seasons of the original TV Series. He is the father of Sam and Dean Winchester. John became a hunter when his wife was killed by a demon. He raised his two sons to be hunters as well.

In the SeriesEdit

He first appeared in Home, when he spoke to Missouri Mosley from the shadows. Sam and Dean hit the road to find him, who was missing for sometime. He told her that it was too soon for his sons to see him.

John and his sons eventually reunited and together they sought after the Yellow-Eyed demon, using the Colt which can kill it. Dean however, is left dying after a car accident and John decides to sell his soul to Yellow-Eyes in exchange for Dean's.

When Jake Talley opens the Devil's Gate in All Hell Breaks Loose - Part 2, John's spirit manages to escape and grab hold of Yellow-Eyes before the demon can shoot Dean. He forces the demon to drop the Colt, allowing Dean to use it against the demon. Yellow-Eyes is killed and John and his sons meet for one last tearful moment before John vanishes.
