* ''Film/{{Liliom}}'': Just as Liliom and his friend Alfred are about to try and rob the payroll, a creepy-looking knife sharpener hauling a cart shows up and briefly distracts Liliom. The attempt at distraction fails and Liliom is killed in the robbery. Later, in heaven, Liliom sees the knife sharpener again and is told that he's Liliom's guardian angel. Liliom appeals for help and the angel says "Too late."

* The titular character in the song "Camouflage" by Stan Ridgway (also covered by Music/{{Sabaton}} on their album ''The Last Stand''). The song is sung from the viewpoint of a young P.F.C. (Private first class) of the [[SemperFi United States Marine Corps]] during the UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar. Alone in the jungle, he fears for his life when, unexpectedly, a "big marine" comes to his rescue introducing himself as "Camouflage". The two fight together through the course of a night making their way back to base, during which the PFC notices that Camouflage is unaffected by bullets and is capable of superhuman feats. Camouflage leaves the PFC after leading him to the edge of his camp. [[spoiler:On his return, the PFC is informed that Camouflage has been on his death bed for the past week and died the previous night, his last wish being "to save a young marine".]]

* The Gumbo's small child Pasquale in ComicStrip/RoseIsRose has a GuardianAngel, who usually looks just like little Pasquale with wings. When danger threatens, however, he morphs into a much larger, much more biblical version, with armor and a huge sword. It's implied that this is his true form, and just uses the other one to keep from frightening... well, everyone.

* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' has several Guardian Angels standing about. They are very restricted in how they can act. Like all angels in the series, they must permit Free Will to take precedence. This means if a supernatural threat attacks those mortals under their protection, the angels can stop them cold. If a stupid kid with a gun comes against them, the mortal must defend himself from harm. One named one is called Amitiel and he stands guard protecting an office in a sort of Chicago Between, where the souls of good men who don't feel ready in Moving On have taken up continuing to fight the forces of darkness. Harry once tried using his Sight, which allows him to see the True Form of a thing and would strip away any veils or masks, on just the gun Amitiel bore at his side. All he saw was it change into a silvery sword before the guardian angel stopped Harry with a word, telling him it would hurt Harry to see that.

* In Creator/PhilipKDick's ''EyeInTheSky'', at one point the protagonists end up in a world [[spoiler:(actually a fundamentalist's personal mental world)]] where religious concepts are physically manifest and obvious. One of these are guardian angels, who can manifest as small mouths that whisper advice into a person's ears.
