A Stake is a strong wooden or metal post with a sharp point at one end. It is an essential tool for vanquishing vampires.


When Paige became a vampire, Phoebe searched the house for tools that she and Piper could use to fight off Paige and other vampire. Among these items were a series of stakes though only one was used.[1]



Rowan staked by Phoebe.

One of the most common ways to vanquish a vampire is to stab it through the heart with a stake. Phoebe Halliwell once fought a vampire, Rowan. During this battle, she managed to pin him down. She immediately tried to stake him in the heart, however, he was almost able to hold Phoebe off with his enhanced strength before she successfully forced the stake into his heart, destroying Rowan.
