* Gabriel appears in the comic book series ''ComicBook/{{Hellblazer}}'' as an arrogant snob in London. He is constantly being tormented by his thoughts about whether God created him to be a good angel of mankind, or a powerful heavenly killer. [[spoiler: And the Annunciation is actually depicted as Gabriel ''raping'' and impregnating Mary.]] John Constantine later tricks him into sleeping with a succubus, where he gets his heart ripped out of him. Although alive, Gabriel comes under control of Constantine, who uses him in his fight against [[{{Satan}} Satan, First of the Fallen]]. He is killed in the process.

* In ''Fanfic/ManchesterLost'', a ''Literature/GoodOmens'' fanfic, he appears as a DeadpanSnarker who gets annoyed by pretty much every single thing Michael says or does, and spends his life bemoaning his stupidity. [[spoiler: He's also been in love with him since the beginning of creation.]] He admits this eventually.

* ''Manga/GabrielDropout'' is about a young, blonde, female angel named Gabriel, who graduated as top of her class in heaven's school, but once she comes to earth, she discovers video games and turns into a slobby slacker, thus toying with the "talks to humans" and "does bad, bad things" parts. Whether she really is the biblical Gabriel or just shares the name and similarities is unclear.

* The ''StarOcean'' (and ''ValkyrieProfile'' and a few other Tria games) have a bonus boss named "Gabriel Celeste", one half of a duo and the lesser male HalfIdenticalTwin of an even stronger Angel BonusBoss named Iseria Queen. The "Celeste" part is to [[NamesTheSame differentiate]] from a PersonOfMassDestruction named after the angel Gabriel who was the boss of ''VideoGame/StarOceanTheSecondStory''.

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 [[UsefulNotes/{{Mormonism}} Latter-day Saint]] theology, Gabriel is believed to have led a mortal life as Noah.

* ''Literature/TheBible'', of course, is the TropeMaker, making Gabriel OlderThanFeudalism. He is described as "one having the appearance of a man," with a tendency to make people fall down in fright. Usually, he has to reassure them and tell them not to be afraid. In addition to announcing the birth of {{Jesus}} in the New Testament, Gabriel first appeared to the prophet Daniel to help interpret his [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt apocalyptic visions]] of the future.

* In ''Webcomic/{{MyBestFriendMarneao}}'', Gabriel is the general of [[TheArmiesofHeaven Heaven's Army]]. He is a chubby juggernaut who could fight against abominations without problem. This is quite an odd take of him, since he is usually the messenger, not a general.
