Memory Manipulation is the ability to erase, modify, or restore a being's memories.

Characters with this abilityEdit

  • Cosmic Entity - When Castiel woke up in the Empty, it went through his memories.
  • Angels - Demonstrated by Michael, Zachariah, Castiel, Naomi, and Gadreel. Curiously, this ability is not used to trick Sam and Dean into saying Yes to Lucifer and Michael, though it is presumed that they needed to do so completely with their own consent, without any such interference.
  • God - When he resurrected Castiel the third time, he suppressed his memories, albeit temporarily.
  • Demons
    • Azazel - Was able to erase Dean's memory of his conversation with Tessa upon resurrecting him.
    • Dagon - Was able to manipulate the memory of a doctor to say that Lucifer's son was alright to Kelly Kline.
    • Crowley - Was able to "scrub" Kevin's short term memory. 
  • Death - Was able to set up a "wall" inside Sam's mind that prevented him from remembering his ordeal in Hell.
  • Witches - Witches could plant false memories or use a person's memories to freeze a target through spells.
