* ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt'' has [[{{Psychopomp}} The Angel of Death]]. This is perhaps one of the few WesternAnimation examples of an angel that is far away from the WingedHumanoid stereotype; it appears as [[GoodIsNotNice a glowing smoke]] EldritchAbomination that descends from the sky from what appears to be an '''interdimensional hole'''. This, as well as its job ([[spoiler:to kill every firstborn in Egypt that isn't a Hebrew]]) can easily be seen as a reason why the movie sticks to biblical tradition.

* ''Manga/HeavensLostProperty'' has Ikaros, an "Angeloid" that fell out of the sky. She, like every Angeloid, grants every command the "master" gives, even going so far as attempting to kill herself after mistaking a bad joke as a command. She has variable feathered wings, sometimes bright white and emanating energy. All angeloids are self-aware winged androids (hence the name) built for very specific purposes (which leads to them having various lackings in other areas such as weak body build, low intelligence or no emotions) and generally treated as products by their masters. These masters look like the more traditional angels, with two or four feathered wings. They are actually a highly technologically advanced ancient civilisation.

* Angels in ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' are humans who have pledged loyalty to one of the [[CouncilOfAngels Good Elder Powers]] and must remain on the far upper end of the KarmaMeter to keep their angelic powers. They come in seven varieties, three derived from [[ThePaladin Paladin]] warriors, three from [[WhiteMagic Shepherd]] healers, and one of [[AscendedDemon defectors]] from the other side. Nexus angels are anything but light and fluffy and are a collection of deadly ClockPunk robotic constructs and divine-energy-wielding KnightTemplar crusaders. Only the Advocate resembles the pop-culture version, and even then it's [[LethalJokeCharacter only a resemblance]].

* ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld'' introduces angels relatively early on in the form of the Host; they look mostly human except for the fact that they can manifest wings of pure energy... except of course for [[{{Satan}} Eblis]], who appears in the form of a tall, white-skinned humanoid with [[BaldOfEvil no hair]], [[EyelessFace no eyes]], and [[BarbieDollAnatomy no genitals]]; it's not known if this was a result of him falling from grace and ending up in the Hell Dimension, or if this is some kind of GlamourFailure. In a very unusual twist, the Host weren't created by God - ''they'' created God in the form of the [[DeusEstMachina divine biocomputer]] [[BigGood Gaia]], along with most of the world as we know it. However, the matter of what to do with their creation has split the Host into two opposing factions: one faction, the Grigorii, only want to protect Gaia, while the Nephilim want to exploit her for all she's worth [[spoiler: by releasing [[EldritchAbomination the Dreamers]] from Gaia's captivity and [[HijackingCthulhu harnessing them for their own selfish purposes]] ]]; as such, the game begins with the player being visited by representatives of both factions in attempts to sway you to their way of thinking. There are only two members of the Host who are outside of this conflict, now considered FallenAngels: one is Eblis, who now rules over the Hell Dimensions and is trying to conquer Earth; the other is [[spoiler: Sammael, who is now masquerading as Samuel Chandra, Founder and CEO of [[MegaCorp the Orochi Group]].]]

** And finally, there is the greatest secret of Academy City, known by the code-word DRAGON: [[spoiler:the otherworldly being known as Aiwass. It is an existence somewhat similar to an angel, but obviously different at the same time. Nobody really knows ''anything'' about Aiwass (YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm being in full effect), though what is known is that it is the single most powerful entity yet introduced]].

** In ''Manga/ACertainScientificAccelerator'', [[spoiler:a demon hijacks the Rosenthal family golem spell (with the help of an esper researcher desperate to get his sister back) and downloads the memories of the ten thousand deaths of the MISAKA Network in order to artificially increase its esper power and become a level 6. The result is a massive necrotic slug-like monster with angel wings]].

* ''Series/Preacher2016'': They look human, in fact they're indistinguishable from them aside from the fact that they're immortal. If killed, they reappear at once from the nearest door. The only way to stop them is thus incapacitation. So far the only exception is the Saint of Killers, whose gun kills an angel (at his request). Most are [[CelestialBureaucracy middle management types]], but one seraph shows up as well, a sort of warrior angel apparently.

* Angel, of ''Comicbook/XMen'', is explicitly stated from the beginning to be a mutant who just happens to have various flying mutations including big white fluffy wings. Except, of course, [[spoiler:later developments made him a descendant of Nephilim, along with Nightcrawler, and added healing blood to his powers]].
* ''Comicbook/GhostRider''
** Nobel Kale becomes an angel when he's in hell! (On Earth, he's just a spirit who possesses people.)
** The Johnny Blaze version of the Ghost Rider later {{re|tcon}}wrote the evil demon trapped inside Johnny into a misunderstood angel that had basically snuck in when he sold his soul. Also there are evil angels, particularly, you know, Zadkiel.
** When first introduced into the universe, Angels tended to look like energy beings. DemBones was the closest they got to looking like people(looking like more advanced/powerful version of Ghost Rider, before the above retcon strangely enough). They've mostly appeared as winged humanoids since the 2000s.

* Franchise/TheElderScrolls has a race of beings called "Jills," which are described as "the minute-maidens of Akatosh," and function as Angels in relation to him. In [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]] they will make their first in-game appearance as massive black Dragons that will try to eat your face off with some regularity. Many lesser Daedra could count as angels as well, depending on how you view their respective Prince.

* Franchise/TheElderScrolls ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series has a race of many [[OurGodsAreDifferent divine beings]] taking many forms and moralities. The closest to "angels" would be the lesser Aedra. The Aedra, meaning "Our Ancestors" in the [[ClassicalTongue old Aldmeri language]], are the pre-creation beings called "Jills," which are described as "the minute-maidens who sacrificed a large portion of Akatosh," and function as Angels in relation to him. In [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]] they will make their first in-game appearance as massive black Dragons that will try divine power in order to eat your face off with some regularity. Many lesser Daedra could count as angels as well, create Mundus, the mortal world. They were originally many in number, but only 8 of the most powerful survived the creation of Mundus. (And depending on how you view the story, even they did not truly "survive," but they are dead and "dreaming the are alive.") These 8 are known as the "Divines" and would become the primary deities worshiped by the [[SaintlyChurch Church of the Divines]]. Many lesser Aedric beings have been known throughout history. The most famous is perhaps Morihaus, a "winged [[ALoadOfBull man-bull]]", said to be the demi-god son of Kynareth, one of the Divines. The [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]], servants/fragments of [[DragonsAreDivine Akatosh]], the draconic god of time and [[TopGod chief deity]] of the Divines pantheon, are another. These beings are typically considered by many in-universe to be the equivalent of angelic beings. Dragons in particular play with the morality aspects of the trope, being creatures of [[DragonsAreDemonic aggression and domination]], and it's [[AlwaysChaoticEvil in their respective Prince.blood to be cruel and contemptuous]]. However, [[HeelFaceTurn they can fight against their baser nature]], as best exemplified by Paarthurnax.
