* Considering the SpaceMarines of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' are often considered to be the GodEmperor's [[{{Badass}} Angels of Death]], it would logically dictate that his 20 PhysicalGod sons that were the genetic templates for the SpaceMarine Legions would be his [[CelestialParagonsAndArchangels Archangels]] (and It's especially evident with Sanguinius, Primarch of the Blood Angels, who happens to be a WingedHumanoid). Of course, once Chaos had come about in the Literature/HorusHeresy, half of them went the other [[DemonLordsAndArchdevils route]]...

** Interestingly, there are two types of Archangels: The named archangels (Michael, Uriel, Gabriel, Raphael) and the generic demon Archangel. The named archangels are usually endgame or near-endgame in terms of power, while the Archangel is one of the lower-leveled demons.

* ''TabletopGames/PrometheanTheCreated'' features ''qashmallim'', who are [[OurAngelsAreDifferent not-quite-but-maybe angels]] serving [[InMysteriousWays a cosmic Principle]]. There are arch-''qashmal'' as well, and when they show up, something big happens... [[SubvertedTrope though not necessarily nice]]. The book lists an example of an entire city convening to build an edifice before leaping off of it, and one adventure features [[spoiler: an arch-''qashmal'' about to irradiate all of Detroit unless the Prometheans make a sacrifice]].
* The ''TabletopGames/{{Exalted}}'', Celestials in general and Solars in particular, were this during the First Age. Sort of. And in the Age of Sorrows, the golden Chosen also come in nihilist black and hellfire green...

* Raphael, Gabriel, Michael, and Uriel are invoked by name during rituals in the {{Deryni}} novels. They variously manifest as pillars of light, or elements (earth, air, fire and water), or luminous beings that seem to have wings. They are identified with compass points or the Four Winds as well as the Four Elements (Earth, Air, Fire and Water):

* The archangel in ''Anime/QueensBlade'' is shown to be second to God in terms of authority, with six pairs of wings in comparison to a normal angel's one. She is often found disciplining Nanael for her rather unholy acts being a rather large embarrassment to the rest of her angelic comrades.

* In the ''YoungWizards'' series there's the Winged Defender, a.k.a. the [[{{God}} One's]] Champion ([[AllMythsAreTrue a.k.a. Thor, a.k.a. Athena, a.k.a. the archangel Michael]]). S/He only rarely intervenes directly, since fully manifesting strains the fabric of reality almost to the breaking point, but when s/he ''does'', s/he has no problem kicking the ass of the [[{{Satan}} Lone Power]]. In addition to occasionally kicking the ass of the BigBad, his/her responsibilities include granting the titular wizards their power ([[AllMythsAreTrue which was the inspiration for the legend of Prometheus]]), and also keeping the TrueName of {{God}} in several separate pieces, since the sheer power radiated by God's whole name would [[ApocalypseHow destroy entire universes]].

They're the top [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angels]] (or angel-like beings) around, and can usually be found as the heads of a CouncilOfAngels. The one thing they have in common is that they can [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking kick a whole lot of ass]] and are usually the {{Big Good}}s of the setting.
