* 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.

* The Japanese tokusatsu show ''Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger'' features the Gosei Angels, a race of humans born with mysterious powers (card-based magic and giant robots) who fled to another world 10,000 years ago so that they wouldn't disturb normal humans. Also, for some reason they have feathery wing motifs during their transformations despite not having actual wings. [[spoiler:At least, not until the series finale.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The Lords in ''Series/KamenRiderAgito'' give of a somewhat angelic vibe. They look like humanoid animals, dressed in clothing normally associated with angels. When summoning their weapons, or are at the point of dying, a halo appears above their head. [[spoiler: They actually are angels. In this series, the equivalent of God is revealed to be evil. Or at least a control freak that wants to lord over his creation, namely humanity, with an iron fist. On the other hand, the equivalent of Satan spread his essence among humanity, which will help them evolve to Agitos, superhuman beings capable of breaking free from "Gods" control. "God", off course, is unhappy with this, and sends his angelic Lords to earth to kill off every human showing the tendency to evolve into an Agito.]]

* The world of the ''Literature/RoseOfTheProphet'' trilogy is home to a large pantheon of gods. Each god has several Immortals under his command, which they may assign to different tasks as they see fit. The Christianity-based god Promenthas turned his Immortals into angels, ranked from the lesser ones who deal with humans the most, to the archangels, important enough to deal with Promenthas himself.

* ''AnimaBeyondFantasy'' features most prominently the Beryls, who are God-like spirit beings of light who serve C'iel, the goddess of light. There're seven of them, who are named after -and identified with- the seven archangels of the [[CrystalDragonJesus Christianism of the setting]], all but one of them have adopted female gender, and each one of them have associated a set of ideas and concepts (for example, Gabriel represents among other things love, arts, and peace and Uriel -the unique male- freedom, independence and free will)

* In the 1940s and 50s, angel gimmicks were common in North American wrestling. These they tended to be very muscular short men with an abnormal feature of some kind who could render opponents unconscious with a palm strike, [[FollowTheLeader a trend started]] by "The World's Ugliest Man" The French Angel, who had migrated to Boston Massachusetts when France fell to the Nazis. His distinct appearance was the result of acromegaly.

** Later comics introduced a Cherubim ("Always plural... they're gestalt beings with four aspects."), which apparently did not go along with the plan to turn Heaven into a CelestialBureaucracy and got exiled for it. Rumisiel describes them as pure, raw power times four, and the one we've seen perpetually had a cat on his shoulder while pretending to be human, then when revealing his true nature, an eagle appeared as well, both apparently part of the same being (a reference to the Biblical description of what are believed to be Cherubim given in the [[Literature/TheBible Book of Ezekiel]], as beings with four faces: a man's, a lion's, an eagle's, and an ox's).
