** Actually, most Christian traditions have it so angels have spiritual, and not physical, bodies, meaning that they are neither male nor female. Though it is true that when they show up in media they look male.

* Averted in Christian tradition, where the angels are often believed to be all male. As the demons are fallen angels, they would be all male as well by default. Though in Roman Catholicism, the angels do have a Queen, the Virgin Mary, who replaced Satan as God's second-in-command.

* ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld'' does this during the dream section of the opening cutscene. A "good" appearing angel (white clothing, whitish appearance, releases bees, which are associated with protecting the world) is female, while a more "evil" appearing (reddish wings, dressed in black, releases black flies) angel is male. [[spoiler: They appear at the end of the game, after players decide whether to weaken or strengthen a prison for the main source of corruption in the game, and fill the expected roles]].

* ''VideoGame/AVeryLongRopeToTheTopOdTheSky'': The {{God}} figure is The Mother, while the Devil figure is The Eater, who's refered to with 'he'.

* The ''Daughter of Smoke and Bone'' trilogy by Laini Taylor has the rare inversion; a boy angel (or seraph) meets a girl demon (or chimaera) and they fall in love. [[spoiler:Things haven't gone well for them so far]].

* In "The Second Summoning" by Tanya Huff, the first sex between the Keeper and the Hero calls an angel down from heaven. As a counterbalance, a young female demoness is brought up from Hell. Eventually each of them becomes a "neutral" terrestrial--the angel is a cat familiar to another Keeper, the demoness is a normally-rebellious female teenager. They drift apart. The cat is a character in the third novel, "The Long Hot Summoning", the ex-demoness is nowhere to be seen.

* ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiStrangeJourney'': [[spoiler: Zelenin (transformed into an Angel) and Jimenez (fused with a Demon)]]. In general, however, the series averts the trope - angels are for the most part genderless, and demons come in all shades.

* ''ComicBook/PS238'''s CaptainErsatz of Genesis, Malphast, has the same set of parents, taken even further. The two are HappilyMarried and [[FriendlyEnemy Friendly Enemies]] of each other. When other mortals come into contact with them, they are about equally manipulative (not to mention both are good sports about the certainty that their better half will undoubtedly manipulate them in the other direction).

Though in this series, they're more aligned with OrderVsChaos, respectively, and come across like [[FriendlyEnemy Friendly Enemies]] of each other.

* Not played completely straight but somewhat present in ''Manga/KamikazeKaitouJeanne''. The angel Finn Fish is aligned with the God and supporting protagonist Maron, while antagonistic demon Noin is male. This is less the case in the anime, where a second female ([[spoiler:and pure-race, rather than formerly-human]]) demon named [[CreepyChild Myst]] was [[CanonForeigner added]]. Beyond Finn and Noin, the male dark angel Access Time is also introduced from the very beginning, albeit also as an antagonist in a manner that reinforces the major implication behind the trope - male supernatural agents, angels or devils, tend to be working for the Devil, while female supernatural agents are working for God. [[spoiler: Even this implication, so toyed with, completely breaks down once it's revealed that Finn is the [[TheMole actual fallen angel working for the Devil]], while [[DarkIsNotEvil Access is actually an agent of God]]]].

* The ''VideoGame/SimCity'' clone ''VideoGame/{{Afterlife}}'' uses this. It goes a step farther, portraying the Angel Aria as TheDitz and the Demon [[MagnificentBastard Jasper]] as a DeadpanSnarker.



* Averted in ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'' and ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2''. When the outer planes appear their denizens are usually demons or devils of both genders, and the only full-blooded angel to feature in either game is male.

* Likewise, in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', Vaatu, the spirit of darkness, is male, and Raava, the spirit of light, is female. Exceptionally bizarre because they draw on Yin Yang symbolism, which assigns darkness to women and light to men. A downplayed example, as both Raava and Vaatu are completely inhuman in appearance, and identical in every way but their color scheme.
* In ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' the Daughter is the embodiment of the Light side of the Force, while the Son is the incarnation of TheDarkSide.

** It is revealed that the conflict over the possession of [[CosmicKeystone The Triforce]] that [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda the series]] revolves around boils down to two God-like beings who wish to use it for their own purposes. The Goddess Hylia wished to protect it from evil forces while The Demon King, Demise wished to obtain it for absolute domination. The true form of Hylia is not seen in the game, but depictions of her portray her as an angelic woman. Demise isn't seen until the very end of the game, but his true form is extremely masculine (people say he resembles [[VideoGame/StreetFighter Akuma]]).

** In general, most powerful forces of good are female. Hylia, Zelda, the Golden Goddesses, the Oracles and the Great Fairies. In contrast all of the major villains are male. Demise, Ganondorf, Vaati, Yuuga. Intermediate forces such as the sages, and other animal and tree spirits are either or.

** This also extends to their WeaponOfChoice. Fi is a stoic, almost computer like feminine spirit that inhabits and transforms into the Goddess/Master Sword. Ghirahim is a flamboyant, overly emotional masculine spirit that does the same for the Demon Tribe Swords of Despair.

* ''VideoGame/HeroesOfMightAndMagic V'' has female Angels and male Devils (though there are female demons). In previous games, they were both male.
** It's debatable whether angels are female or just {{Bishonen}} though.
