** An interesting note, in the book of Acts, Saint Peter was imprisoned by Herod. His friends all thought he was dead, so when divine intervention rescues him and he goes knocking on their door; they think that it is "his angel." The Bible simply lists them thinking this without stating that it's correct or incorrect, but it does indicate how the "Dead people = Angels" confusion / argument has been going on at least for the last two thousand years.

* A solar (the highest rank of angel in D&D, and thusly someone even your character, the [[spoiler:child of the god of death]], does not want to mess with) serves as MisterExposition in ''BaldursGate II''; epic level spellcasters can also summon celestials.

* '''How powerful are they?''' {{Winged Humanoid}}s and angels are sometimes weak or at least [[GlassCannon easily damaged]] when their supernatural aspect is missing or not played up. More often however, they are portrayed as divinely powerful badasses. They do go toe to toe with [[EvilCounterpartRace demons]], after all, and are canonically more powerful than human beings.

beings. Maybe they're downright martially inclined and form TheArmiesOfHeaven.

* In ''VideoGame/ValdisStoryAbyssalCity'' "angels" are simply humans that have given their soul to the Goddess of Light, Alagath. While they have a "holy" theme, they vary wildly in appearance and power depending on how many souls they have been given ([[PoweredByAForsakenChild or taken]]). As Alagath has been harvesting human souls en-masse to build an army against her sister, most humans think they're no better than demons.

* Pit from the ''VideoGame/KidIcarus'' series resembles [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Eros/Cupid]] and the putti of the Renaissance art. Later games added to the Myth/GreekMythology influences, but he is still referred to as an angel by other characters. Additionally, despite having wings, [[WingsDoNothing he can't fly without Palutena's blessing]], something which he usually doesn't like to talk about.

* The Grey Angels of ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'' ''could'' be actually robots. At any rate, there's only seven of them, each is extremely powerful, giant and sapient, each can send dreams and manipulate memories and while they can't fly, it's implied they can walk through the walls and move unseen.

* As with nearly every other creature, ''Videogame/DwarfFortress'' throws its lot into this. They are exceedingly rare, obscure entities; most DwarfFortress players will eventually encounter demons, but angels are more often heard about than witnessed, tending to obscure corners of the world. Even the least of angels can obliterate an unprepared adventurer, and archangels are, bar none, [[BonusBoss the most powerful singular physical beings in the base game]].

Appearances vary, being randomly generated, but they will reflect their gods' spheres. This can lead angels of darker deities of, say, nightmares or death, to look more demonic than actual demons.

* As with nearly every other creature, ''Videogame/DwarfFortress'' throws its lot into this: [[spoiler:They are each god's personal servants, go from merely huge and talented humanoid warriors clad in {{Unobtainium}}, to things that more or less resemble slightly holier Forgotten Beasts, to one single gigantic, and ''insanely'' powerful and skilled warrior clad in this same {{Unobtainium}} and that is probably the single most powerful thing this sadistic game can toss in your direction. Their appearance varies depending on the god they serve, but judging by the fact you only find them in places where these gods have made deals with demons, you can also count them as being of the more malevolent kind of angel]].

* 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.
