* 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.

* ''Talbetopgame/Pathfinder'' has the Empyreal Lords, who are demigods representing the good outsider races (archons, angels, agathions, and azatas).

* There's [[http://www.miaminewtimes.com/news/myths-over-miami-6393117 an article about the folktales shared by homeless children in Miami]] (and presumably in some other places) in which this type of angels are frequently mentioned.

* ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' has the angels acting as the antagonists. Those who bear the title of "Archangel" are merely {{Elite Mook}}s; closer to the spirit of this trope are four Audito, who claim ties to cardinal virtues ([[{{Hypocrite}} that they rarely demonstrate]]), wield ElementalPowers, are at the least the size of buildings, have appearances more befitting {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, and [[MotorMouth never shut up]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' has the angels acting as the antagonists. Each angel even has its own page to tell us where in the hierarchy it rests.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'', most players will never encounter an archangel. [[LightIsNotGood Fortunately]]. They serve as {{Bonus Boss}}es for those brave or foolhardy enough to seek out such a challenge, and powerful enough to survive the might of the lesser angels that, in of themselves, far eclipse all but the greatest of mortals. Their appearances are randomized, as variable as the ineffable natures of the gods that create them.

* ''Webcomic/HolyBibble'' has a literal council of angels that include the archangels Michael, Gabriel, Phanuel, Cassiel, Uriel and Sariel. Unlike many other angels, these archs have superpowers. Jophiel and Raphael might also be included in this list.
