* In ''TheGuardians'', demons have batlike wings, while [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Guardians]] have white feathery wings. Among the Guardians, Michael's wings are black, [[spoiler: one of the signs he wasn't born human, but half-human and half-demon.]]
* The slake-moths in ''PerdidoStreetStation'' have dark color-changing wings which are literally nightmarish to any sentient creature that looks at them. The moths aren't exactly evil, more like amoral eldritch horrors, but they're smart enough to use their wings as weapons.

** For that matter, Riku's Keyblade, Way to the Dawn. Originally, it was a sword manifested by darkness with its blade design being a devil wing, tying with the initial idea of dark being evil. However, come Kingdom Hearts II, upon Riku becoming said poster boy, the evil-looking sword is turned into the Keyblade. While it still prominently features devil wings in its design, such a longer and straighter one from the blade and part of its guard, it now incorporates angel wings as the key's teeth and the other half of the guard, the two guard wings even reversed in a yin-yang fashion.

** '''Two sets of angel wings or more''' are also known as '''seraph wings''' and usually means this guy is either an EccentricMentor, the FinalBoss, or a angel belonging to a higher rank than the ones with only one set.

* Subverted in ''AngelSanctuary''. While angels have dove wings and demons have bat wings as usual, the type (and number!) of wings indicates species and rank rather than the character's morality.

** Naturally, these are often seen on HumongousMecha, but these are usually mechanical, airplane-like wings, unless the designer wants to get theatrical.

** Naturally, these are often seen on HumongousMecha, but these are usually mechanical, airplane-like wings, unless the designer wants to get theatrical. However, different rules often apply if it transforms or combines.
*** TransformingMecha often have either wings from their alternate mode or [[KibblesAndBits kibble evoking the shape of wings.
*** CombiningMecha with wings usually get them from one of their component mecha.

* In ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros. Brawl'', the final boss has Energy Wings and certainly lives up to them. For some reason, they look like butterfly wings too.

* In ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros. ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'', the final boss [[BigBad Tabuu]] has Energy Wings and certainly lives up to them. For some reason, they look like butterfly wings too. Palutena and her Light Wings and Pit and Dark Pit (with there respectively white and black Angel Wings) are the most obvious exemples, but the rest of the winged cast is less straightforward: Meta-Knight has Devil Wings, but this is mostly a relic of his LawfulEvil past as he is always with the good guys in the Subaspatial Emissary storyline (but the trope was played at first in the debut trailer against Pit or when he encounters Marth for the first time), and Bayonetta and her Butterfly Wings are certainly not fairy-like, but definitively deadly. Finally, Charizard and Ridley both have Dragon Wings (of course), but are in opposite teams.
