->''You are a wolf in rabbit's clothing taking advantage of a poor innocent little rabbit!''
-->-- '''Sharon''', ''Manga/PandoraHearts''

We all know the appeal of MindGameShip, playing another person's mind like it's a game and what not, but this trope can go hand in hand with that one. Take two characters: one sweet, innocent, kind, loving, naive, maybe even virginal, etc. In other words: [[TheIngenue an angel]]. The second character is malicious, rude, possibly perverted, seductive, sadistic, etc. In other words: [[TheVamp a devil]]. Then you pair them up with each other. The main aspect here lies in the fact that the Devil character can do all sorts of things to torment the Angel character and in the end the two characters will fall in love despite everything or perhaps because of everything (or not if the pairing is one-sided).

Generally, a combination of MindGameShip and OppositesAttract, with a dash of DracoInLeatherPants, depending on whether the 'ship is canon or not. In SlashFic or some yaoi, the {{Uke}} is often the angel while the {{Seme}} is the devil.

May overlap with FoeYay or DatingCatwoman. Compare BeastAndBeauty. Sometimes a IHaveYouNowMyPretty scenario may occur from the devil to the angel. A BastardBoyfriend, DepravedBisexual, DepravedHomosexual, PsychoLesbian, or a {{Yandere}} may be the devil, and TheIngenue, AllLovingHero, PluckyGirl, or NiceGuy may be the angel.

Sometimes for this trope in fanfic [[{{Wimpification}} a previously tough character may be made into a more sensitive innocent character]] and vice versa. Sometimes the devil character may try to force another rebellious character to submit and become the angel. More often than not [[FemaleAngelMaleDemon the devil is male and the angel is female]], though the gender-flipped variant is not unheard of.

!!{{Fanon}} Examples:

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* Tohru/Akito from ''Manga/FruitsBasket'', Akito being the 'devil' as s/he is a DomesticAbuser and Tohru being the 'angel' as she [[AllLovingHero redeems with love]]. One could make an argument for a Tohru/Shigure ship as Shigure's character is morally ambiguous.
* ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'' Chrome/Belphegor, Tsuna/Belphegor, and Uni/Byakuran exists too. Basically just Tsuna/every villain considering his sweet naive Messiah nature. Also some Tsuna/Reborn fanfics portray them as this.
* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'':
** Anyone/[[{{Yandere}} Belarus]] is this too. Ironically, Russia/Belarus falls into this as well, because, despite Russia being evil, his little sister, Belarus, is much worse. It's even more horrific with their genderbent versions, since [[DoubleStandard Male!Belarus has higher chances of getting to rape his sister, Fem!Russia, than their counterparts]]. [[http://images4.fanpop.com/image/photos/23000000/Fem-RussiaxMale-Belarus-nyotalia-23023813-674-800.jpg A]] [[http://data.whicdn.com/images/17891005/Female-Russia-x-Male-Belarus-hetalia-couples-26183617-1000-1000_large.jpg few]] [[http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lol81cUeAg1qgcx4k.jpg examples]] [[http://images5.fanpop.com/image/photos/25800000/Nyotalia-Male-Belarus-and-Female-Russia-hetalia-couples-25870168-1050-1120.jpg are]] [[http://images5.fanpop.com/image/photos/30800000/Male-Belarus-x-Female-Russia-hetalia-couples-30869807-707-1000.jpg here]].
** A good chuck of Taiwan/Japan, which is pretty popular [[CastFullOfGay for a het pairing]], is set during the Japanese occupation of Taiwan, and so tends to fall into this category.
** Seeing as how [[LovableSexManiac France]] regularly hits on and gropes the other nations [[DepravedBisexual male or female]] any pairing involving him can sometimes turn out to be this.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' Orihime/Ulquiorra, especially when symbolism is taken into account (Ulquiorra's released form looks like a fallen angel [[spoiler:and his second one is a devil]]).
** [=GrimmHime=] is the second most popular Orihime FoeYay ship behind [=UlquiHime=], with Grimmjow as the Devil and Orihime as the Angel. (It helps that Orihime is the only person in the manga Grimmjow ever did a favor, even if it was for selfish reasons.)
** [[TheCutie Momo]] being paired with [[TheDragon Gin]] or [[BigBad Aizen]] exists, too.
** In fanfics where Ichigo is made to be a sensitive {{Uke}} he can be involved in this if he is shipped with Grimmjow, Gin, Hollow Ichigo, or Aizen.
** When paired with anyone Nnoitra (devil) gets this. Orihime and Nel are frequently paired with him possibly due to [[NoYay several suggestive scenes]] they have with him in canon.
* Light/Anyone in ''Manga/DeathNote'', but especially Misa or L, though L has usually been Uke-fied in such instances because it isn't really canon for him to just sit back and let Light screw with him, he can do plenty of mind screwing himself. The same is true for Beyond Birthday/Anyone probably due to his psychotic obsession with L and how he refers to himself "an aggressive top." Even Light tends to get Uke-fied whenever [[EvilerThanThou Beyond decides to play Kira]].
* Franchise/{{Digimon}} has both [[GirlOnGirlIsHot Angewomon/LadyDevimon]] and [[GuyOnGuyIsHot Angemon/Devimon]] as literal examples.
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'':
** Naruto/Itachi, Naruto/Kabuto, Naruto/Orochimaru, Naruto/Sasuke, generally Naruto/any villain considering his sweet naive AllLovingHero NiceGuy nature. Also, Naruto/Sai at times.
** Since ''Shippuden'' and [[RivalTurnedEvil Sasuke's]] FaceHeelTurn, fanfic of him and [[TheChick Sakura]] of this nature exists as well.
** Naruto/[[DarkChick Karin]], even though they didn't officially meet until [[spoiler: her HeelFaceTurn]]. That, and [[spoiler:they're cousins, though no one knows exactly how close, since Karin is a member of Naruto's mother's clan]].
** [[KissingCousins Hinata/Neji]], as Neji is often seen as a dark, cynical guy who abuses and forces himself on Hinata, a lot of fans ignoring his HeelFaceTurn.
** Sasuke/Itachi, too. Both [[IncestYayShipping Hinata/Neji and Sasuke/Itachi]] are seen as this, ''especially'' by people who don't ship them, as Neji and Itachi are still seen as quite dark characters, despite that they both proved that Hinata and Sasuke, respectively, were the persons they cared about the most when they [[spoiler: sacrificed themselves for them]].
* In some ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' SlashFic Yugi is often made to be the sensitive {{Uke}} to Yami Yugi's BastardBoyfriend.
* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' SlashFic Ed is sometimes made to be the angel to either [[BastardBoyfriend Envy or Roy]].
* Mavis Vermillion and Zeref in ''Manga/FairyTail''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* [[BrotherSisterIncest Lucy/Edmund Pevensie]] from the ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia''. Apparently, many people often like to forget that Edmund has actually turned into a good guy since the first book, because [[DracoInLeatherPants dark! Edmund is much more interesting]]. Most often, Edmund is a stoic, witty or snarky bastard [[RomanticizedAbuse who still mocks and abuses]] sweet, naive, innocent Lucy. He's also sometimes portrayed as a [[MemeticMolester violent guy who forces himself on Lucy]].
* ''Literature/LittleRedRidingHood'' / Big Bad Wolf, quite often.
* ''Literature/GoodOmens'' has Aziraphale and Crowley, a pair of literally an angel and a demon and probably the most popular ship in the fandom. Although, admittedly at the time of the book, both of them have spent too much time with each other and with humans to be quite so purely good or evil.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/{{House}}'' is like this to everyone, though Wilson isn't really content to sit back and let House mind screw him and does plenty of mind screwing himself. In SlashFic though Wilson (angel) and House (devil) play it straight, probably helped by all the [[HoYay/{{House}} Ho Yay]] they have together in canon.
* ''Series/{{Smallville}}'': There is an unholy amount of [[LauncherOfAThousandShips Chloe]]/Kal[[note]]Clark's SuperpoweredEvilSide[[/note]] shipping fan fiction. Often ends with Kal corrupting [[IncorruptiblePurePureness Chloe]] and CoitusEnsues. Chloe has also been paired with [[spoiler:Davis Bloome]] may count. [[spoiler:He is usually a nice guy though. When he is not busy being ''Doomsday''.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Videogames]]
* Some of the fandom like to pair Cosmos with Chaos from ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy''. They're actually not too far off -- [[spoiler:Cosmos was created as a copy of Chaos's adoptive mother.]].
* ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'': [[IncorruptiblePurePureness Ventus]]/[[MadeOfEvil Vanitas]] is one of the most popular pairings in ''Birth by Sleep''. Also [[PsychoElectro Larxene]]/[[NiceGirl Namine.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' has the hugely popular [[HoYay/WesternAnimation Les Yay]] pairing of Kim/Shego.
* ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' SlashFic has Zim and Dib switching around the angel and devil roles.
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' has Finn and Marceline, even if Marceline isn't really evil only {{dark|IsNotEvil}}. A LOT of people also ship [[LightFeminineAndDarkFeminine Princess Bubblegum and Marceline]].
* The page image is the somewhat-popular fan-pairing of Discord (MadGod, TheTrickster, RealityWarper, the "chaos" of OrderVersusChaos) and Celestia (TheHighQueen, PhysicalGod, LightIsGood, the "order" of OrderVersusChaos)
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' gives us Korra/Amon. Amon is a creepy mind rapist who's able to reduce the normally badass Korra to tears through psychological torture.
* ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' Bloom gets shipped with one of the villains, either one of the Trix(Icy mostly), or Valtor.
* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'': Edd/Marie. The former is a TokenGoodTeammate of the entire show, the latter is his StalkerWithACrush. Alternatively, Edd/[[spoiler:Eddy's Brother (a ChildHater sociopath roughly twice his age).]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Real Life]]
* A lot of people have been fascinated by applying this trope to JoanOfArc and her comrade Gilles de Rais, who after the war became one of history's most infamous pedophile {{Serial Killer}}s and an inspiration for the character of Bluebeard. Not helped by the fact some reports ''do'' mention that the two of them got along well (though no solid proof of a romance exists) and it's likely that Gilles de Rais went mad long after the war.
[[/folder]]

!!{{Canon}} Examples:

[[folder: Anime and Manga]]
* Akihiko/Misaki may counts as this in ''Manga/JunjouRomantica''. [[CrazyJealousGuy Akihiko]] is the demon, since he is very perverted and possessive towards Misaki, while [[AllLovingHero Misaki]] is the angel.
* Daisuke/Krad in ''Manga/DNAngel''. There's also some Daisuke/Dark interpretations in fanfics and Daisuke/Satoshi shows up in canon and fanfiction as well.
* Xelloss/Filia in ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'', as Xelloss is part of the Monster Race, which feeds off dark emotions, and Fillia is a priestess of light.
* [[ManipulativeBastard Vincent]] [[{{Yandere}} Nightray]] of ''Manga/PandoraHearts'' has a bit of this going on with everyone, but especially with his brother Gil and Ada.
* ''Manga/BlackButler's'' Sebastian is a seductive demon who is the devil to anyone really in both canon and fanfics.
* Played fairly canon in ''LightNovel/{{No 6}}'' with all the HoYay between Shion (angel) and Nezumi (devil).
* Akio in ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' actively seeks to be the devil in all his relationships, be they with [[DepravedBisexual males or females]].
** Utena/Anthy also shows up given Anthy's true nature and the amount of LesYay subtext/text they have in canon.
* During the Eclipse in ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' Casca is made into the angel for [[spoiler: Griffith as Femto]] as he [[spoiler: renders her helpless and brutally rapes her]].
* Aoshika/Haguro in ''Manga/WolfGuyWolfenCrest'' is a particularly disturbing pairing as he actually does [[spoiler: target and rape her]].
* Gender flipped in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' where plenty of Shinji/Asuka fanfiction portray them as having this type of relationship. In canon, they're attracted to each other though Asuka sometimes flirts aggressively with the very shy Shinji and Shinji ultimately ends up [[spoiler: both masturbating to Asuka's comatose body and strangling her]].
* In ''Anime/PrincessTutu'', Ahiru (angel) and Fakir (devil) initially have this dynamic, with Fakir being a [[DeadpanSnarker sarcastic]] {{Jerkass}} and Ahiru being a kind-hearted CuteClumsyGirl. However, said {{Jerkass}} [[DefrostingIceQueen defrosts]] later on.
* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'':
** Sayaka and Kyouko are angel and devil, respectively. But the angel is an insane KnightTemplar and the devil has a certain soft spot.
** After the release of the ''Rebellion'' movie, [[spoiler:we can add Ultimate Madoka ("Godoka") and Ultimate Homura ("Homucifer")]].
* Maka/Giriko in ''Manga/SoulEater'' with Giriko targeting Maka and wanting to rape and kill her. And then there's [[AmbiguousGender Chrona]]/Medusa.
* Yukiteru (angel) and Yuno (devil and epic {{Yandere}}) in ''Manga/FutureDiary''. And Yukiteru/Tsubaki also counts as he once gets a ForcefulKiss complete with spit trail from her.
* [[JerkAss Aoshima]] makes unwanted advances on the innocent Bellydandy and Skuld (when she aged up) in ''Manga/AhMyGoddess''. Both times, he got shocked for his attempts.
** The existence of Urd flat out states that God and the Devil (specifically the Almighty One Tyr and Daimakaichou Hild) not only had a relationship but one that produced children.
* Sousuke in ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'' Slash works is sometimes made to be an innocent angel character to Gauron's canon devil character. Also, in the novels, being the sick pervert he is, he shows interest in humiliating and possibly molesting/raping Tessa (to "break" her spirit, since he's annoyed with "righteous" people). He makes it very clear to the other submarine personnel that if they try to do anything, he ''will' do "X-rated" things to the cute captain. When she acts defiant towards him, it "pleased him from the bottom of his heart," and he exclaims, "Ohhh, she's cute!" and proceeds to jokingly ask the Mithril traitors if they're sure they want to leave, since this place seems like a nice place to work.
* [[{{Keet}} Tetsunosuke]] and [[StalkerWithACrush Suzu]] become this in the sequel manga of ''Manga/PeacemakerKurogane''.
* ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'' has the Devil Bats' "Commander from Hell" quarterback Youichi Hiruma and their TeamMom manager Mamori Anezaki.
* ''Manga/SangatsuNoLion'': Rei/Kyoko, with Rei being the Angel and Kyoko as the Devil. While there are fans of the work that don't want this to happen ''precisely'' because of this dynamic they share, there are also fans that are excited by the prospect of it once the romantic undertones of their relationship become more overt.
* ''Manga/MakaiOuji'' has Jeanne d'Arc (JoanOfArc) and Gilles de Rais (see RealLife above). Jeanne has become a "Pawn of Heaven" and is expected to become an archangel, while Gilles is a nephilim (a human turned into a demon) who is in love with her.
* ''Anime/BubblegumCrisis'' inculdes a song called "Devil and Angel's Kiss"
* Consummate NiceGirl [[MartyrWithoutACause Krista]] and blunt, cynical ([[WordOfGay and canonically in love with Christa]]) [[WildCard Ymir]] from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comicbooks]]
* In ''Comicbookl/PS238'', Malphast's parents are an angel and a devil.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* Rachel/The Joker in ''Film/TheDarkKnight''. He acts all flirtatious towards her, calls her beautiful repeatedly, appears to sniff her, and threatens her with a knife. Subverted when she knees him in the groin to get him away from her and he likes it.
* A demon and an angel produced a child together in the comedy ''Film/LittleNicky''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* With all the HoYay they have, Gerald Tarrant and Damien Vryce from the ''Literature/ColdfireTrilogy''. The former is a demon/vampire, and the latter is a priest.
* Christopher Carrion and Princess Boa from ''Literature/{{Abarat}}'' would've been this; he's from the lands of Night, and she's from the lands of Day.
* Sebastian Verlac appears to be the devil to Clarissa Fray[[spoiler:Morgenstern]] in ''Literature/MortalInstruments''. That is, [[spoiler:when one ignores the fact that he killed the REAL Sebastian Verlac and is actually her older brother, Jonathan Christopher Morgenstern, and has [[BrotherSisterIncest incestual feelings]] for her.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Jane/Hoyt in ''Series/RizzoliAndIsles'' during the episodes Hoyt was on the show when he instilled within her a sense of fear and made her feel vulnerable.
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'':
** In "Heaven and Hell", demon Ruby and angel Anna (both occupying very attractive bodies at the time) are sitting in the backseat of the Impala with Dean at the wheel. Dean apparently ships them, since he can't resist comparing the scenario to a Penthouse forum letter.
** PlayedForLaughs when Dean is having an EroticDream of two strippers in angel and devil costumes dancing for him.
-->'''Dean:''' Now that's what I call peace on Earth.
** Meg (demon) and Castiel (angel) share a lot of subtext throughout their interactions. Then she decides to make out with him in one episode. She openly expresses her love for him in season 8.
-->''(after being kissed by him)'' '''Meg:''' I feel so... clean.
** Crowley, the King of Hell, intimates he had a past relationship with the Angelic leader Naomi in Mesopotamia. It's left ambiguous whether they knew each other's identities at the time.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Whistler is half-demon who appeared in season 2. In the season 9 comics, he reveals that his parents were one of the PowersThatBe (the closest beings the Franchise/{{Buffyverse}} has to angels) and a pure-blooded demon. This is compared to (as in being a lot more taboo than) the [[BigGood Slayer]]/Vampire pairings (Buffy/Angel and Buffy/Spike).
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* This trope is the subject of Devil's Love Song by Tishamingo.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Videogames]]
* Laharl/Flonne from ''VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness'' is a literal example (albeit with a NobleDemon). There's also Flonne/Etna for non-canon ships as well.
** ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 4}}'' adds in another literal example [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire Valvatorez]] and Artina, though the former never admits it.
* In ''VisualNovel/TogainuNoChi'' Shiki tries to be the devil to Akira's angel.
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'': Olivia, a sweet, bashful young woman prone to blushing intensely, is commonly paired up with Henry, a sociopathic magician who always looks forward to physically tearing someone to pieces. The best part is, you can make this happen in-game.
** Like any of Henry's other prospective wives, this is a canon example of the devil character slowly toning down their devilish characteristics because of his interaction with the angel. Whoever Henry gets married to (as well as the couple's child/children) ends up becoming his MoralityChain, and while Henry will never fully get rid of his violent tendencies, he turns out to be both a faithful husband and good father.
* ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'': Protagonist Dante, and his brother Vergil, are the product of a relationship between a human woman named Eva and a demon lord named Sparda, [[DefectorFromDecadence who ended up turning good]] before [[MayflyDecemberRomance their relationship started]], while the [[VideoGame/DMCDevilMayCry reboot]] shakes this up so that Dante's mother was actually an angel, making this a literal case of the trope (but still not figuratively). Dante himself ends up playing Angel to Trish, [[{{Squick}} a demon created to seduce him in the image of his mother]], who like Dante's father ends up becoming heroic and sides with him.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* ''Webcomic/AntiHeroes'': The chief protagonist and the chief antagonist are the Krylorn twins, children of an archdevil and a celestial falling in love.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* In the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' episode "Birthmark" Raven is made into the angel for Slade's devil during his [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything highly suggestive pursuit and mind rape of her]] which instills in her a sense of terror.
* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'': Kuki/King Sandy. And it's canon [[StalkerWithACrush on Sandy's side]] anyway.
* AngelsFriends: The main couple, Raf and Sulfus, are literally angel and demon.
