(Arch)angels don't have to be morally good to qualify as (arch)angels. It says so right there in the description.
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.

* 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 Micheal]]). S/He only rarely intervenes directly, since fully manifesting strains the fabric of reality almost to the breaking point, but when ''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]]. * Played with in ''Literature/HisDarkMaterials'' - there's good angels and bad angels. The 'lead' angel has [[spoiler: usurped god]] and rides around in his floating fortress.

Removed SCP-001 completely because he's not good. At best, he's Blue And Orange Morality.

* The angels in ''ShadeTheChangingMan'' are smug, brute-force manipulators who don't even bother attempting to appeal to morality or necessity. They brought Shade back to life but also made him crazier by taking a piece of his mind to control him with. They resurrected Kathy and withheld the MindRape memories so intense they ''killed'' her, then extorted her with them to make her keep Shade under control. They're such JerkassGods that they make [[DealWithTheDevil a bargain with an]] FauxAffablyEvil Devil seem sane by comparison.

* Played with in ''HisDarkMaterials'' - there's good angels and bad angels. The 'lead' angel has [[spoiler: usurped god]] and rides around in his floating fortress. * In Creator/LJagiLamplighter's ''ProsperosDaughter'', Miranda is quite shocked to learn that one being Mephisto can summon is Uriel. [[spoiler:At the end, he gives instructions to Astreus, who had been rather high-ranking himself.]]
