* The Four Archangels of ''Manga/TheSevenDeadlySins'' are the most powerful warriors of the Goddess Clan. They are the counterparts to the Ten Commandments of the Demon Clan and fought against them 3000 years ago. [[spoiler: Despite technically being the good guys, the three of them that are shown were more than willing to commit heinous atrocities during the war that [[EvenEvilHasStandards horrified even the Commandments]] if it meant destroying the demons. Like the rest of the Goddess Clan, they lost their bodies and were sealed away at the end of the war, but were eventually unsealed so they could once again oppose the remaining Commandments now led by [[FaceHeelTurn Meliodas]]. While they're still called the Four Archangels, there are actually only three of them by the time they return. The fourth Archangel, [[PosthumusCharacter Mael]], was killed by Estarossa during the first war against the demons]].

* ''The {{Digimon}} series'' features a full angel hierarchy, with popular Digimon such as Angewomon and Magnaangemon being akin to archangels, and Ophanimon, Seraphimon and Cherubimon taking their namesakes from angelic ranks in the bible. Holy Digimon are also all identified by Holy Rings featuring in their design. Often the more Holy Rings the higher the Digimons ranking amongst other Holy Digimon, although this rule is played pretty loosely. Demon digimon, such as Devimon and Ladydevimon for example, are considered Fallen Angel versions of Angemon and Angewomon respectively within lore.

* The BigBad of ''[[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Scarlet Weather Rhapsody]]'' is a Celestial Paragon who threatened to cause a cataclysmic earthquake [[ItAmusedMe out of boredom.]] Of course, Tenshi is [[OurAngelsAreDifferent kinda different,]] even as far as Celestials are concerned...
** Speaking of which, according to [[UniverseCompendium supplementary material,}} the Celestials in general are basically the {{Upper Class Twit}}s of the universe; elitistic [[TheHedonist hedonists]] who were granted a place in [[FluffyCloudHeaven Bhava-Agra,]] a paradise of instant gratifications and endless parties, either because of their own virtues, through attaining enlightenment, or through a BargainWithHeaven. It's also thanks to the Celestial Paragons that the CelestialBureaucracy is such a mess: No more people are getting into Heaven. The official reason is that they're out of space, but the truth is that there's plenty of it, the Celestials just like hogging enormous areas for themselves.

* 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.
