** In ''[[TabletopGame/InNomineSatanisMagnaVeritas In Nomine Satanis / Magna Veritas]]'', the much more tongue-in-cheek (read: blasphemously humorous) original French RPG, he's a converted Viking that sometimes relapses into some pagan practices (such as weapon worship or keeping trophies). Also, he still wields a [[AnAxeToGrind battle axe]] instead of a "noble" weapon. But nobody says anything, because without him {{Heaven}}'s forces would lose their [[BunnyEarsLawyer best warrior]].

His earthly HQ is in the Mont Saint-Michel, Normandy.

The archangel Michael is one of the [[NominalImportance named]] [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angels]] in the Abrahamic tradition, and is [[CelestialParagonsAndArchangels ranked as the commander]] of the army of {{God}}. Generally seen as the {{foil}} to {{Satan}} ([[FallenAngel former angel Lucifer]]), Michael is one of the most important Angels in the Company of {{Heaven}}, as well as a first-class {{Badass}}. Unless Jesus ([[MamaBear or Mary]]) does it personally, Michael will be the one who finally banishes or kills Lucifer for good. Interestingly though, while the Literature/BookOfRevelation depicts Michael as leading the heavenly host in this fight, the iconic image of him standing over a defeated Lucifer and kicking him out of heaven ''personally'' actually comes from non-canonical texts, and [[WordOfDante got folded into popular mythology over time]].

** Tulkas is more alike in terms of personality, as he's the Vala who likes to wrestle and fight, though he's a comparatively low-ranked Vala rather than anything close to a leader or "{{God}}'s right-hand". He is the embodiment of [[{{Badass}} elemental arse-kicking]], though. In that respect, he can be seen as stronger than his brothers and sisters, and he was the only one Morgoth was actively afraid of even before his powers diminished to the point that any of the other Valar could beat him in a fight.

In ecclestical art and icons, Michael is represented in Byzantine cataphract armour, usually wearing lamellar armour, helm and cloak, and armed with spear and [[FlamingSword]] Alternatively, he may be represented in wearing [[KnightInShiningArmor 15th century full plate armour]]. He is often represented as slaying a dragon with his lance.

Being both a soldier and a representation of God's authority, Michael is venerated as the patron of professions of authority and warfare. He is specifically identified as patron saint of police officers and the military, and he was also venerated in the Middle Ages as the patron saint of chivalry. Many knightly orders were dedicated to him, including France's first chivalric organization, the Order Of Saint Michael. Michael is also associated with soothing the suffering of the sick, so he's a patron of healers as well, specifically paramedics (who can overlap with other professions under his patronage, like {{combat medic}}s). Michael is also associated with sailors.

Michael is also the patron saint of various organizations and geographical locations. He's the patron saint of Germany, and of the cities of Brussels and Kiev (in Belgium and Ukraine, respectively). Most impressively, after the Battle of Lechfeld in the Middle Ages, Michael was declared patron saint of the Holy Roman Empire itself, which would probably make him the most venerated figure in Christianity short of God/Jesus and the Virgin Mary.

Mary. Town of Mikkeli, Finland, has been named after him.



* In ''MAnga/{{Bastard}}'' Michael is presented as an extremely busty female (as is ArchangelGabriel). As a point of interest, some religious sources say that angels are genderless, so Michael would not be partial to what form he/she/it takes when on Earth. Angels in ''Bastard!!'', however, are most definitely '''NOT''' genderless, even if they try denying it - much to Michael's chagrin when HeroicComedicSociopath and lech extraordinaire Dark Schneider decides to cop a feel or twelve.
