In occult grimoires, he is listed as the [[ThePowerOfTheSun planetary angel of the Sun]], ruling over the sign of Leo and being described as "[[{{Irony}} arrogant]] and [[HeWhoFightsMonsters prideful]]". [[note]]Interestingly, another angel, [[FallenAngel Shamsiel]], is listed as ruling over the Sun, being the guardian of the East and also ruling over the Fourth Heaven. Both Michael and Shamsiel are also cherubs.[[/note]] This is sometimes present as GeniusBonus in some works.

* In ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' Dean Winchester, Michael's vessel, is described as "The Michael Sword". In this form Michael is destined to slay his brother Lucifer (who will occupy Sam's body) to end the Apocalypse and bring about Paradise on Earth. Michael himself has finally made an appearance by way of the 1970s version of John Winchester, revealing that the Winchester bloodline is made up of his vessels. Dean is not happy to learn this. [[GoodIsNotNice Also, he's just as much of a know-it-all dick as Lucifer.]] And then it turned out that [[spoiler:''Adam'' could also be used as the vessel. While inhabiting Adam, he's thrown into Lucifer's cage along with his brother in the season 5 finale. By season '11'', he's apparently a catatonic wreck.]]

Because of {{meaningful name}}s, most characters simply named "Michael" will generally be good guys. Since they are Michael InNameOnly, please don't list them here. The name itself is "Who is like God" in Hebrew, possibly a mocking question presented to Satan during his rebellion.

* Michael is name-dropped in the ''Film/GhostRider'' film, when Johnny takes refuge in St. Michael's church. The stained glass windows in the church depict Michael in his traditional spear-wielding pose. The gravekeeper doing Jonny's stitches mentions "Saint Michael himself" banishing [[{{Satan}} the Devil]] from {{Heaven}}.

* In Literature/DoraWilkSeries he's the leader of Archangel Council (Heaven's ruling body) and generally the Trio's ally. He seems to be rather good frieds with Lucifer (although the Fall put quite a strain on that). Dora describes him as looking "[[UncannyValley too perfect to seem human]]".

** In the original conception of the ''Silmarillion''(''Unfinished Tales''), there was a Vala whose province was war and battle; but he was edited out of the final cut and his attributes transferred to Tulkas on the grounds that having a Vala of War would not have been appropriate in the good camp and who in any case would have been redundant in the original perflect world envisioned by the Creator.
