* The angels in ''Manga/ACentaursLife'' are human. Literally! They're considered a race of humans, just like imps, centaurs, satyrs, or mermaids, even able to interbreed. This is a world where there are no 'normal' humans. Angels are set apart from other humans by having feathered wings [[UselessWings only useful for keeping warm]], no tails, hair that grows into the structure called a 'halo', and unique small round ears. Angels have no special powers but are very loosely associated with spirituality.

** Sternritter [[FacialMarkings X]], [[ColdSniper Lille Barro]], of the aformentioned Elite Guard takes this UpToEleven with his Vollständig, "Jilliel" (ironically making him the closest interpretation to the original Bible's description among them), with an armored, armless form that [[{{Intangibility}} can't be hurt]], a halo, four pairs of wings reminiscent of a seraph, and holes all over his body and wings that unleash his [[UnblockableAttack power]]. He transforms even more when he gets damaged: into [[EldritchAbomination a giant owl with a long neck, deer-like legs, long and lanky humanoid arms, the wings from his first form, and a halo above his head]]. Taking the angel parallels even further, he states that, as he is the last Sternritter bestowed a Schrift by [[BigBad Yhwach]], he's the latter's greatest creation, and refers to himself as a "[[MouthOfSauron Messenger of God]]" with {{God}} being Yhwach.

** The form an Angel wears in most situations is actually a shell that houses their true body, which the author has likened to a controlled nuclear explosion. Angels are immortal but not unkillable; if slain through superior force, they reincarnate in the VoidBetweenTheWorlds. The number in front of their name actually indicates how many times they have incarnated.

At least one angel is a free-floating Euclidean solid with a halo. The number in front of their name actually indicates how many times they have incarnated.

* Webcomic/SkinDeep has the angel Gabe who is genderless, believes in all religions at once (somehow), drinks and smokes, has an instinct to help other and (allegedly) has no free will.

* On ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime,'' [[KidHero Finn]] is once rescued from danger by a guardian angel...[[spoiler:who then tried to eat him]]. Whether this means she was lying about being an angel is unknown.

* Archangel/ cherubim Jophiel from ''Manga/LucuLucu'' is… somewhat different, as in: four faces, arms and wings. Plus he's essentially immaterial spirit who has to possess mortals to be able to stay in mortal plane. Though, of course, [[OlderThanYouThink this is how cherubim were described in the Bible]].

Each member's Quincy: Vollständig amplifies their unique ability and has a name fitting of an actual archangel. None of them have the archetypal angel wings, but rather take the form of pixels, jaws, thunderbolts, bones, hearts and even just rods.

* ''Manga/PlatinumEnd'''s angels mostly fit the usual appearance of angels (young-looking and slender, with wings and a halo, bathed in light), but Nasse at least [[BlueAndOrangeMorality doesn't grok human moral standards or thought processes]] − doesn't seem to see anything wrong with stealing or even killing people if it's out of retribution, for example. It's unclear if this is just her, or a common thing among angels.

I don't believe it is ever suggested that the Homestuck Cherubim characters are the last of their kind.
** The story later introduces [[spoiler:Cherubs, which are a type of alien species that grow large wings in adulthood. They are extreme loners, often never meeting another of their kind except to mate, and their idea of romantic attraction is FoeYay. The BigBad is one of them, which would explain the role of angels in troll mythology - the BigBad influenced the troll's concept of the GrimReaper.]] We've met only two [[spoiler:Cherubim]] (hinted to be the last of their kind). One is extremely kind and gentle, the other... [[OmnicidalManiac Not so much]].

** [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/dr-clef-s-proposal Dr. Clef's proposal for SCP-001]] is a titanic glowing figure with a variable number of wings (ranging from 2 to [[OneHundredAndEight 108]]) apparently guarding a gate and will destroy anything that approaches; it is clearly meant to be a bona fide Judeao-Christian Angel as they were ORIGINALLY conceptualized. It's somewhat implied that it's specifically the angel which guards the gate back into Eden. According to what might have been a message from the future, it will eventually destroy the world. It actually has a name, too. Courtesy of [[Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} The Other Wiki]], meet [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jophiel Archangel Jophiel]]. That also makes him one of the Cherubim chiefs.

* ''Cherubim'' -- (singular ''Cherub'') Literature/TheBible is not clear on if Cherubim are a separate class from the aforementioned living creatures or not, but according to Jewish tradition, normal angels of this choir could look and often did look, human. Both the Ark of the Covenant and Solomon's Temple included images of angels of this class in their design that seem a little closer to Ezekiel's description though.
