* In ''Literature/ParadiseLost'', John Milton made Gabriel, complete with horn, chief of the angelic guards placed over Paradise. He's really {{badass}}.

He (and nowadays sometimes "[[ShesAManInJapan she]]") is a PublicDomainCharacter, from ''Literature/TheBible'', of course, though his status as an Archangel is never specified in the book itself.

* Gabriel is one of the main angels in ''Webcomic/HolyBibble''. His job is very bureaucratic, and he often finds himself having to clean up some of the messes both the fallen and his fellow angels make.

One of the best known angels (and one of three to be specifically named), Gabriel is the messenger of God. His most famous act was foretelling the births of Jesus and John the Baptist, though he appeared as early as the Book of Daniel in the Old Testament. Because he is explicitly mentioned as the angel who comes to earth to inform the people, in fiction he is often shown interacting with humans, in addition to the higher angels' role as warriors. Many also identify him as the angel of the Last Judgement, and with the Ministering Angel who came to Jesus in Gethsemane. Gabriel, known as Jibril, plays a similar role in UsefulNotes/{{Islam}} (he appears to Muhammad, and the revelations so transmitted are ''Literature/TheQuran'') and the Baha'i Faith. In Latter-day Saint theology, Gabriel is believed to have led a mortal life as Noah.

* Gabriel herself does not truly appear with all her memories in ''{{Angel Sanctuary}}'', but Sara is [[spoiler:her {{reincarnation}}, after being forced to...reincarnate...by Sevothatarte, for opposing his rule in Heaven. Sara temporarily uses her body, but Raphael restores her to her own body, and the body of Gabriel, also known as Jibril, is placed in the Water Garden again. We can assume that after Sara lives her happy, normal life with Setsuna that they finally achieved at the end of the manga, she will be restored to being Gabriel, with all her memories, when she dies.]]

* An important angel named Gabriel appears in ''SaintBeast'' but he's [[ZigZaggingTrope probably not]] modeled on the traditional Gabriel as the work's cosmology is a bit of a melting pot and this Gabriel actually allies himself with Lucifer and goes to Hell.
