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

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, or vice versa, 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.

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. It 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. More often than not [[FemaleAngelMaleDemon the devil is male and the angel is female]], though the gender-flipped variant is not unheard of.

Has nothing to do directly with ''Series/{{Angel}}'', though interestingly he could be on either side of the pairing.

!!{{Fanon}} Examples:

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''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 chunk 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 Grimmjow ever did a favor for, 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.
** ''Anime/DigimonTamers'' has Beelzemon (FallenAngel) with Sakuyamon ({{Miko}}); the fandom quite enjoyed their OddFriendship and ShipTease moments as Impmon and Renamon before the former's FaceHeelTurn. [[spoiler:And then he did a HeelFaceTurn right back, but the symbolism is quite strong.]] It's notable that they have so much art together in their Mega forms, since in the actual canon they never really shared a proper scene together.
* ''Manga/FruitsBasket'': Tohru/Akito, the latter being the 'devil' as Akito 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.
* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' SlashFic Ed is sometimes made to be the angel to either [[BastardBoyfriend Envy or Roy]].
* 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.
* ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'': Chrome/Belphegor, Tsuna/Belphegor and Uni/Byakuran exist. Basically just Tsuna/every villain considering his sweet naive Messiah nature. Also some Tsuna/Reborn fanfics portray them as this.
* ''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]].
* [[http://i.imgur.com/GEdnWLm.jpg The]] [[http://i.imgur.com/ZRiXz3Y.jpg advertising]] for ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion'' adds a sexual element to [[spoiler:Madoka and Homura]]'s relationship that isn't [[TrailersAlwaysLie present in canon]]. They also portray the characters in their deity forms--[[spoiler:Madoka as the benevolent, white-clad Goddess of Hope and Homura]] as the ObviouslyEvil demon she becomes [[TrailersAlwaysSpoil at the end of the movie]]--even though they never appear onscreen together like this; in fact, the "devil" wants to ''prevent'' the "angel" from taking on this form.
* ''Manga/SeraphOfTheEnd'': Ferid likes to play mind games and exert his power over the other characters, namely Crowley, Yuu, and Mika in canon as well as fanon. He gets this with Yuu especially even though Yuu is technically becoming a demon as he's a good NiceGuy and Ferid is a dangerous foppish vampire. Crowley notes in the novels that Ferid has the kind of beauty that corrupts people and tells the group in the manga that he feels bad for them because Ferid wants to be their friend as he's exhausting with all his antics and mind games.
* In some ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' SlashFic Yugi is often made to be the sensitive {{Uke}} to Yami Yugi's BastardBoyfriend.

[[folder:Film - Live Action]]
* Creator/PeterJackson's [[Film/TheHobbit film series]] based on ''Literature/TheHobbit'' has spawned the disturbingly popular ship "[[PortmanteauCoupleName Smaugbo]]" (Bilbo x Smaug). It helps that [[Creator/MartinFreeman their]] [[Creator/BenedictCumberbatch actors]] play the two male leads on ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'', who are commonly shipped together.
* Angel and Nightcrawler from ''Film/XMenApocalypse'' sure ''look'' the part and they have something of a following.
* Though whether Kylo Ren and Rey are canonically love interests or not is mostly left ambiguous, they're one of the most popular pairings in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' fandom to date.

* Scarlet (an angel) and Frank (The Anti-Christ) have a lot of romantic chemistry in the ''Literature/DemonSquad'' books. It helps the latter is an AntiAntiChrist.
* ''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.
* ''Literature/LittleRedRidingHood'' / Big Bad Wolf, quite often.
* [[FoeYay Ralph and Jack]] from ''Literature/LordOfTheFlies'', which is obvious in both their looks and personalities, Ralph representing the calm, rational, civil part of the human mind (also, [[HairOfGoldHeartOfGold blonde-haired]]), while Jack represents the basic, primal instincts, the savage part of the human mind ([[EvilRedhead red-haired]]).

[[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''.]]
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': [[spoiler:Dean/Castiel]] had a huge following already, but with [[spoiler:the season 9 finale turning Dean into a demon, the pairing has literally become this.]]
** Also provides the very literal version of this with Meg/Castiel fans.

* 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.]]
* In the ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' games, it's surprisingly common to ship the sweet-hearted British time-traveller PluckyComicRelief Axl Low with the [[AxCrazy dangerously psychotic]] DarkActionGirl I-no.
* ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'': [[IncorruptiblePurePureness Ventus]]/[[MadeOfEvil Vanitas]] is one of the most popular pairings in ''Birth by Sleep''. Also [[PsychoElectro Larxene]]/[[NiceGirl Namine.]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'': There are 115 works on Website/ArchiveOfOurOwn that ship [[CombatMedic Mercy]]/[[AxCrazy Reaper]] in some capacity. Never mind that Reaper believes Mercy is the cause of his incredibly painful [[OurZombiesAreDifferent zombie-wrath]] state, and hates her as a result.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''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 Aang/Azula pairing from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''.
** And to a lesser degree, Zuko and Katara.
* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'': Edd (Angel) and Marie (Devil). Double D is an {{Adorkable}} NiceGuy and ShrinkingViolet with not a single malicious bone in his body along with being ambitious in school. His Kanker counterpart Marie however, [[InformedAttribute loves]] [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys bad boys]], [[AbhorrentAdmirer comes on to him]] [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale against his will]], is a slacker in school and at the same time being TheBully along with her sisters to everyone on the cast. Oh, and she also has a [[StalkerWithACrush crush]] on him. [[OppositesAttract For some reason.]]
** Actually, any of the Eds with the Kankers could apply (the Eds being angels and the Kankers devils), but Edd and Marie stands out the most since Edd has higher morals and timidity than the other Eds.
** Also Edd/[[spoiler:Eddy's Brother]].
* [[MindGameShip Flaky and Flippy]] from ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends''. Even more so with their anime versions, where Flaky is portrayed as a sweet, naive, fearful, kind girl, while Flippy is an evil, obsessive, sadistic murderer ([[MurderersAreRapists sometimes rapist]]).
* ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' SlashFic has Zim and Dib switching around the angel and devil roles.
* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' has the hugely popular [[HoYay/WesternAnimation Les Yay]] pairing of Kim/Shego.
* ''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/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** 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)
** And when not paired with Celestia, Discord will often be paired with Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy,[[note]]with whom he's actually paired more often than Celestia, no doubt helped by the OddFriendship they share in canon[[/note]] or Twilight Sparkle, which would fulfill this trope just as well. Pinkie is an over-energetic party pony who lives to spread happiness and laughter, Fluttershy is bashful, gentle, and kind, and Twilight takes after her mentor Celestia and likes to keep things orderly, especially with her schedules and checklists.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' has Him and Bubbles, Him is a Camp Gay demon who enjoys psychological torture and may or may not be Satan himself and Bubbles is a cheerful and naive girl who can communicate with animals, Bubbles is often the victim of Him's mind games and they are of course ArchEnemies.
* ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' has basically any iteration of [[AllLovingHero Optimus Prime]]/[[BigBad Megatron]].
* ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'': Bloom gets shipped with one of the villains, either one of the Trix (Icy mostly), or Valtor.

[[folder:Real Life]]
* A lot of people have been fascinated by applying this trope to UsefulNotes/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.

!!{{Canon}} Examples:

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* [[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.
* Consummate NiceGirl [[MartyrWithoutACause Christa]] and blunt, cynical ([[WordOfGay and canonically in love with Christa]]) [[WildCard Ymir]] from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan''.
* 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]].
* ''Manga/BlackButler'': Sebastian is a seductive demon who is the devil to anyone really in both canon and fanfics.
* ''Anime/BubblegumCrisis'' includes a song called "Devil and Angel's Kiss".
* Creator/{{CLAMP}} works:
** [[FoeYay Seishirou/Subaru]] from ''Manga/TokyoBabylon'' and then ''Manga/{{X1999}}'' are ''definitely'' this what with [[{{Seme}} Seishirou]] being [[spoiler:the sociopathic Sakurazukamori]] and [[{{Uke}} Subaru]] being a tender-hearted, gentle young man who is utterly destroyed by Seishirou's dark intent. Often taken to extremes in fanfiction.
** Seishirou and Subaru's alternate-universe versions in ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' feature Seishirou as a [[StalkerWithACrush priest]] and Subaru as a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire]]. The {{UST}} between these two just jumps right off the page.
** CLAMP in general seems to really enjoy this trope, what with pairings like Fuuma/Kamui from ''Manga/{{X1999}}'' or the pairing of Kokuyo/Hisui who literally are a demon and angel from ''Manga/{{Wish}}''. Zagato and Emeraude from ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth'' appear to be this [[DeconstructedTrope but]]...
* ''Manga/DNAngel'': There's also some Daisuke/Dark interpretations in fanfics and Daisuke/Satoshi shows up in canon and fanfiction as well.
* ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'' has the Devil Bats' "Commander from Hell" quarterback Youichi Hiruma and their TeamMom manager Mamori Anezaki.
* ''Manga/FairyTail'': Mavis Vermilion and Zeref used to be a common fanon example. Then chapter 340 revealed that they had known each other before, and ''Fairy Tail Zero'' showed how they first met. [[spoiler:Chapter 450 finally made them canon, though with [[TearJerker tragic]] [[StarCrossedLovers results]]]].
* ''Manga/FutureDiary'': Yukiteru (angel) and Yuno (devil and epic {{Yandere}}). And Yukiteru/Tsubaki also counts as he once gets a ForcefulKiss complete with spit trail from her.
* ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD'' has a variation of this with Issei Hyoudou (an [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Evil Piece]]) and his PatientChildhoodLoveInterest Irina Shidou (a [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Saint Brave]]).
* 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.
* ''Manga/MakaiOuji'' has Jeanne d'Arc (UsefulNotes/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.
* ''Manga/MonthlyGirlsNozakiKun'': Wakamatsu/Seo. Wakamatsu is rather a sweet, naive, and innocent {{Keet}} and Seo is TheDreaded AntiRoleModel for the basketball team (of which Wakamatsu is part of) that tends to RootingForTheEmpire when watching movies. However, it couldn't be plainer Seo very much fancies Wakamatsu, and while Wakamatsu has a thing for the pure-voiced Lorelei (who, in reality, ''is'' Seo), he's also jealous of the prospect of Seo having a boyfriend.
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': 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]].
* Played fairly canon in ''LightNovel/{{No 6}}'' with all the HoYay between Shion (angel) and Nezumi (devil).
* [[ManipulativeBastard Vincent]] [[{{Yandere}} Nightray]] of ''Manga/PandoraHearts'' has a bit of this going on with everyone, but especially with his brother Gil and Ada.
* [[{{Keet}} Tetsunosuke]] and [[StalkerWithACrush Suzu]] become this in the sequel manga of ''Manga/PeacemakerKurogane''.
* 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.
* 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.
* ''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.
* 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.
* Maka/Giriko in ''Manga/SoulEater'' with Giriko targeting Maka and wanting to rape and kill her. And then there's [[AmbiguousGender Chrona]]/Medusa.
* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' has initially innocent characters [[AllLovingHero Kaneki and Mutsuki]] being prey to the devil characters who have [[ImAHumanitarian nasty]] [[RapeAsDrama inclinations]] [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty towards them]], with both eventually turning on the devils with renewed strength and realizations about themselves, [[SanitySlippage which have negative repercussions]].
* Aoshika/Haguro in ''Manga/WolfGuyWolfenCrest'' is a particularly disturbing pairing as he actually does [[spoiler:target and rape her]].

* In ''Comicbook/PS238'', Malphast's parents are an angel and a devil.
* During their early appearances, Marvel's ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}} and ComicBook/BlackWidow fell into this; Hawkeye was the [[WideEyedIdealist idealistic]], [[GoodIsDumb gullible]], affectionate partner to the [[ManipulativeBitch manipulative]], [[ProfessionalKiller sinister]] Black Widow. Fortunately for them, LoveRedeems, and both ended up becoming superheroes even after the relationship fizzled out.
* ''{{ComicBook/Preacher}}'': Genesis was born when an angel and a succubus fell for each other. When the angels found out, the succubus got a MercyKill and the angel sent to Earth. [[spoiler:All from the beginning, part of God's plan to make something with as much power as Him, whose love he could then feed off of]].

* [[TroubledButCute Anakin Skywalker]] and [[BrainyBrunette Padme Amidala]] from the prequel trilogy of ''Film/StarWars'' are absolutely this, especially as the series progresses and Anakin [[SanitySlippage becomes increasingly violent, deranged and evil]], eventually turning into [[BigBad Darth Vader]] and [[spoiler:causing Padme's own death]].
* 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''.

* 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.]]
* ''Literature/ThePictureOfDorianGray'': Dorian is a ManipulativeBastard to Basil, who is in love with him and unaware of Dorian's true nature and the lengths he is willing to go to for preserving his youthful beauty. [[spoiler: Dorian ends up stabbing him]].
* ''Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey'': Christian Grey is a BastardBoyfriend with a controlling nature towards his sub/girlfriend Ana in their BDSM relationship with strong undertones of gaslighting.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Whistler is a 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).
* ''Series/TheFlash2014'' has a few.
** Zoom is an AxCrazy maniac with dozens of kills under his built, and he plans on obliterating all Earths except Earth-1. He professes his love for Caitlin Snow, a calm and compassionate scientist. Although she does feel attracted to him when he's disguised as [[spoiler:Jay Garrick]], she wants nothing to do with him when she finds out who he really is.
** Late in Season 3 Caitlin Snow is turned into [[spoiler:Killer Frost and tries to murder Barry, who she felt an attraction towards, with a hypothermia-inducing kiss. She's quick to join Savitar when he reveals himself to be an alternate Barry and promises her that they can rule the universe together.]]
* ''Series/{{Hannibal}}'' and Will Graham get this, with Will Graham being a FBI profiler who has a special gift that allows him to empathize with criminals and Hannibal being Will's psychiatrist and secretly a serial killer and cannibal. They gradually come to obsess over one another.
* 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. [[spoiler:She promptly dies thereafter, [[ShipSinking sinking the ship]].]]
-->''(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, although angels can see demons' true faces...

* This trope is the subject of Devil's Love Song by Tishamingo.

* ''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.
* The AllThereInTheManual backstory for ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'' establishes that this is where humanity ''came from''. Sanctuary was created as a world for rebellious angels and demons to hide from the ForeverWar between the High Heavens and the Burning Hells. They started getting cosy with each other, and the ancestors of humanity were literally born as a result.
* 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 with [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire Valvatorez]] and Artina, though the former never admits it.
* ''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 a good father.
** While not as popular as Henry and Olivia, Libra and Tharja fall into this too. The former is a benevolent priest while the later is a DarkMagicalGirl with [[StalkerWithACrush an unhealthy obsession with Robin]].
* ''VideoGame/TheGrayGarden'': Etihw and Kcalb (sometimes) show affection toward each other, despite the war that happened between them in the past. Plus all those canon bonus comics on the official website.
* In ''VisualNovel/TogainuNoChi'', Shiki tries to be the devil to Akira's angel.

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

* For one with a female devil and a male angel, Blackarachnia and Silverbolt of ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars''. Blackarachnia is a sultry, scheming, deadly DarkActionGirl with a taste for treachery. Silverbolt is a noble, dedicated, chivalrous, sometimes downright ''corny'' KnightInShiningArmor. They bond while stranded together and cut off from their respective factions.
-->'''Blackarachnia''': I like being a bad girl. And you know something else? Somewhere deep beneath this squeaky clean armor-plating of yours, I think you like it too, hmm?
* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'': Kuki/King Sandy. And it's canon [[StalkerWithACrush on Sandy's side]] anyway.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': Kaeloo and Mr. Cat. Kaeloo is the protagonist, Mr. Cat is the antagonist, yet they both have feelings for each other [[UnresolvedSexualTension but aren't aware of the fact that it's mutual.]]
* 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.
