* In ''ViolinistOfHameln'', Hamel is a demon, after their father's side, while Sizer is an angel, after their mother's side.

* Not played completely straight but somewhat present in ''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, 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]].]]

* 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 by default as well. Though in Roman Catholicism, the angels do have a Queen, the Virgin Mary, who replaced Satan as God's second-in-command.

* in ''VideoGame/DMCDevilMayCry'' Dante and Vergil are Nephilim, a.k.a. the sons of a demon (Sparda) and an angel (Eva), and thus have incredible {{Hybrid Power}}s. Though the game has some female demons too.

Naturally, this trope often carries the UnfortunateImplication that women are good and men are evil. Additionally, it could be said that WishFulfillment may come into play as well when there's romance involved, i.e., the classical plot of [[ReformedRakes a caring and merciful woman who redeems an evil man with love]]. And since the reverse doesn't exist in fiction, the message is clearly that [[BrokenAesop a good man would never bother with redeeming an evil woman, or give her any time of the day to begin with]]. Or, arguably, this is where AllMenArePerverts meets with [[HornyDevils if she ain't broke, don't fix her]]. [[DoubleStandard Or that a man affecting a fallen woman in a good way is seen as patronizing and sexist]] as it implies that a) a woman can actually "fall" and b) can actually be worse than a man, and thus is to be avoided.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' has the duo of Cresselia and Darkrai. The former is an angelic-looking bringer of good dreams who is always a female, the latter is a shadowy creature of darkness who induces nightmares (and while Darkrai has NoBiologicalSex, most portrayals of it make it masculine). The "demon" aspect of Darkrai, however, is ([[VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonExplorers usually]]) {{downplayed|Trope}}, if it's present at all.

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'', 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]]).

** 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.
** 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.

* In ''{{Wish}}'', the angels are specifically androgynous, but since Tokyopop decided that would be too hard to do in English, angels were all referred to with feminine pronouns and demons male ones, except for the demon catgirls. (And yes, the romance does indeed occur.)
