%% Page image replaced as per image picking discussion http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=1294568074057180100

In any work featuring both angels and demons, most of the time the angel will be female (or at least more feminine or androgynous) and the demon will be male (or at least more masculine).

The primary reason for this is that angels are supposedly beautiful, refined, merciful and noble creatures, while demons (even if they are being portrayed as AffablyEvil) are usually ugly, rude, crude, callous and mean. [[PositiveDiscrimination Traditionally]], the [[WomenAreWiser former traits are considered feminine]] while the latter traits are considered masculine.

Often, even when an angel is portrayed as being male, he will still be played by a woman. {{Aver|ted Trope}}sions generally seem to occur when heaven is represented as some kind of [[CelestialBureaucracy bureaucracy]]. When PlayedForLaughs, the relationship between the angels and demons will be portrayed as a friendly rivalry that inevitably leads to [[{{Rule 34}} se...]][[LastSecondWordSwap um...]][[OppositesAttract romance]].

In the rare cases where the genders are inverted, the angel will be indeed more masculine than the usual standard, but he will mostly be here to highlight that GoodIsNotNice and will often be [[TheStoic cold and unemotional]]. The demoness, on the other hand, will mostly be TheVamp, at best a ManipulativeBitch if non-sexualized, but she will seldom be portrayed as ''physically'' intimidating as her male counterpart. And don't expect any [[DatingCatwoman romance]] between them if they ever happen to be on "friendly" terms because MyGirlIsNotASlut.

Inversions also often occur with occult motifs, as light is traditionally masculine and darkness [[DarkIsNotEvil traditionally]] [[TheSacredDarkness feminine]][[note]]More often than not, though, historical depictions tended to just make both sides male[[/note]].

Naturally, this trope often carries the UnfortunateImplications that women are good and men are evil. Additionally, it could be said that WishFulfillment may come into play as well when there's romance involved, i.e., the classical plot of [[ReformedRakes a caring and merciful woman who redeems an evil man with love]]. And since the reverse doesn't exist in fiction, the message is clearly that [[BrokenAesop a good man would never bother with redeeming an evil woman, or give her any time of the day to begin with]]. Or, arguably, this is where AllMenArePerverts meets with [[HornyDevils if she ain't broke, don't fix her]]. [[DoubleStandard Or that a man affecting a fallen woman in a good way is seen as patronizing and sexist]] as it implies that a) a woman can actually "fall" and b) can actually be worse than a man, and thus is to be avoided.

Notice EvilSoundsDeep.

Couple this trope with AllMenArePerverts and you get HornyDevils. Applicable to [[AllWomenAreLustful gender inversions]] as well, as said above. If people ship the two, that's AngelDevilShipping.

A subtrope of OurAngelsAreDifferent, OurDemonsAreDifferent.



[[folder: Anime and Manga]]
* Played straight in ''Manga/BlackButler'' with the male demon Sebastian and the female angel, Angela. That is, until near the end of the first season of the anime, when [[spoiler:Ash, the Queen's butler/bodyguard is revealed to be Angela in male form--so it's really Hermaphroditic Angel Male Demon]]. The angels in this series are {{Knight Templar}}s and so very, very LightIsNotGood.
* Creator/GoNagai's ''Manga/{{Devilman}}'' had naked, beautiful hermaphrodite angels. Meanwhile, the demons (who absorb the bodies of their victims to "evolve" into stronger forms) look like Darwin on LSD.
* Not played completely straight but somewhat present in ''Manga/KamikazeKaitouJeanne''. The angel Finn Fish is aligned with the God and supporting protagonist Maron, while antagonistic demon Noin is male. This is less the case in the anime, where a second female ([[spoiler:and full-race, rather than formerly-human]]) demon named [[CreepyChild Myst]] was [[CanonForeigner added]]. Beyond Finn and Noin, the male dark angel Access Time is also introduced from the very beginning, albeit also as an antagonist in a manner that reinforces the major implication behind the trope - male supernatural agents, angels or devils, tend to be working for the Devil, while female supernatural agents are working for God. [[spoiler: Even this implication, so toyed with, completely breaks down once it's revealed that Finn is the [[TheMole actual fallen angel working for the Devil]], while [[DarkIsNotEvil Access is actually an agent of God]]]].
* The cosmology of ''Anime/{{Mnemosyne}}'' is similar to this: although men infected by time spores are referred to as "angels", they are much closer to the mindless, savage demon image, while immortal women tend to be refined and benevolent. Moreover, when Rin becomes the Yggdrasil Guardian and sprouts wings of her own, hers are much closer in appearance to classical pure-white angelic wings than the blood-red stubbled ones of the "angels" (though they are still pinkish-white, not pure white).
* Inverted in ''Manga/MyBalls'', the demons (including Satan) are female, EvilIsSexy HornyDevils. There are only two angels shown and both are male: [[ArchangelMichael Michael]] is an old man, and [[ArchangelGabriel Gabriel]] is a {{Bishonen}}.
** Actually there was a female angel shown in an ''omake'' chapter [[spoiler:and Satan becomes an angel again in the end]].
* The Angel and Devil from ''Webcomic/NowhereBoy''.
* This is averted in ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt''. It's female angels and female demons in this show.
* The front cover of the English translation of ''Manga/PrettyFace''.
* In ''Manga/ViolinistOfHameln'', Hamel is a demon, after their father's side, while Sizer is an angel, after their mother's side.
* In ''Manga/{{Wish}}'', the angels are specifically androgynous, but since Tokyopop decided that would be too hard to do in English, angels were all referred to with feminine pronouns and demons male ones, except for the demon catgirls. (And yes, the romance does indeed occur.)

[[folder: Comic Books]]
* The title force of ''ComicBook/TheDarkness'' always has a male host, who can create hordes of goblin-like creatures. On the other hand it's opposite number [[LightIsNotGood The Angelus]] is always female, and she and her creations appear angelic. Though we also get at least one female demon, and the male [[EnfantTerrible Legion of the Cherub Hostile]].
* Creator/MarvelComics' cosmic deities include Mistress Love and Master Hate, the living embodiments of their namesake emotions whose appearances and temperaments play directly to this image.
* Inverted in ''ComicBook/{{Preacher}}'', where Genesis is the offspring of a male angel and a female demon.
** Arguably inverted again almost back again, as the angel proves to be a bit of an asshole and the demon seems a nicer entity.
* GenderFlipped in ''Comicbook/{{PS238}},'' where [[RealityWarper Malphast]] (possibly meant to be a LighterAndSofter CaptainErsatz of Genesis, above) is the son of a male angel and a female demon. Though in this series, they're more aligned with OrderVsChaos, respectively, and the two sides sometimes come across like [[FriendlyEnemy Friendly Enemies]].
* A variant: Comicbook/AdamWarlock uses the Infinity Gauntlet to purge himself of all emotions. As a result, two new beings are created: the male Magus, who represents [[EnemyWithout all of his evil]], and the Goddess, who is all of his goodness. Though this is PlayedWith, because [[spoiler:the Goddess is the BigBad, wanting to destroy the universe to end all sin]].

[[folder: FanWorks]]
* Played with in Fanfic/AngelOfTheBat. Cassandra Cain's new costume is designed off the more gentle, modern design of angels. The Seraphim borrows from their more classical, monstrous appearances. For what its worth, Satan is often depicted as a Seraph.
* Played with in ''Fanfic/TheBridge'' with the [[PhysicalGod Nexuses of Magic]]. Harmony, the Nexus of Light Magic, is female. Grogar, the Nexus of Dark magic, is male. [[BigBad Bagan]] from Terra is their equivalent in status and power and is gender-less, but has a masculine sounding voice.

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* Played with in ''WesternAnimation/TheBookOfLife''; La Muerte and Xibalba are both Gods of the Dead, but while Xibalba is dark and menacing with black wings and skulls for pupils, La Muerte is much lighter and more appealing, as befits the bright, positive realm she rules over. PlayedWith because he at least undergoes a HeelFaceTurn.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* Subverted in the remake of ''Film/{{Bedazzled 2000}}''. Satan is played by ElizabethHurley. She plays chess with a man implied to be God. [[spoiler:The man appeared earlier as Elliot's cellmate]].
** Extra nice because while ElizabethHurley is sexy and plays up the sexy a lot, she's not really a HornyDevil, but just using another form of manipulation (and Fanservice).
** And at one point, she appears as a masculine devil, possibly implying that gender is not a big part of what God or the Devil are.
* In the MadeForTVMovie ''Child Of Darkness, Child Of Light'', the titular children turn out to be, respectively, a boy and a girl.
* In ''Film/{{Constantine}}'', the ArchangelGabriel is specifically portrayed as androgynous, but is played by Creator/TildaSwinton.
** Lucifer, on the other hand, is undoubtedly male.
** There are other angels in the film that are definitely male as well, such as that one paramedic and in a cut scene [[spoiler:Shia Lebouef's character]] became one post mortem.
* Averted in the Richard Burton ''Doctor Faustus'' where the Devil is played by Elizabeth Taylor.
* Sort of subverted in ''Film/{{Dogma}}'' in that the angels (and the demons) are all androgynes... but they're all played by men. (Serendipity, played by the very female Salma Hayek, is also sexless... but Hayek is neither an angel nor a demon but a Muse.)
** God appears as both a man and a woman, as well.
* In ''Don't Tempt Me'' (originally titled ''Bendito Infierno''), the two main characters, are both female. It's later revealed that the demon is actually male, as part of his punishment in hell was having to be a waitress there for many years.
* In ''Film/LittleNicky'', all devils are humanoid males, demons are mostly humanoid males but occasionally monsters of ambiguous gender, and angels are [[ValleyGirl Valley Girls]].

[[folder: Literature]]
* One of Creator/TomHolt's books has a female angel (who's frankly kind of a bitch) and Oscar the demon (who's a bit...off). [[spoiler:They get together in the end; this is why you should always ''listen'' to someone whose day job involves a bestselling LovePotion]].
* ''Literature/DaughterOfSmokeAndBone'': It has the rare inversion; a boy angel (or seraph) meets a girl demon (or chimaera) and they fall in love. [[spoiler:Things haven't gone well for them so far]].
* Inverted in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles''. The only angel we see is Uriel, portrayed by a man, and the primary demon (actually a FallenAngel) is the female Lasciel. Uriel is Heaven's wetworks guy, probably the least 'masculine' of the primary angels (also featuring Raphael, Michael, Gabriel, the usual suspects). Lasciel, along with a number of other Fallen, (such as Tessa,) are terrifying and badass. They often do play up the sex gig, but it doesn't define their character. It's more zig-zagged than actually inverted, as per usual with Butcher's fantasy-kitchen-sink approach.
** However, an Angel of Death appears female, and there are many male demons.
** The [[BlueAndOrangeMorality Fae]] (and their queens, all six of them) generally avert this, but they do occasionally play it straight by take any chance (or technique) to get a certain Chicago wizard on their side. The males nobles? Disguise themselves and lead him into a trap, then later join up and lead a cavalry charge against Harry.
* In ''Literature/GoldenDawn'', the angel trapped in the crystal is definitely female, whilst the demons in the surrounding valley are of either gender.
* ''Literature/GoodOmens'' gives us Crowley (demon) and Aziraphale (angel)...both of whom have taken male forms. Aziraphale, however, is written as the more effeminate of the pair. [[SlashFic Of course, they get paired together]].
** It's mentioned that "[m]any people, meeting Aziraphale for the first time, formed three impressions: that he was English, that he was intelligent, and that he was gayer than a tree full of monkeys on nitrous oxide. Two of these were wrong; Heaven is not in England, whatever certain poets may have thought, and angels are sexless unless they really want to make an effort."
* ''Literature/KeepersChronicles'': In "The Second Summoning" by Tanya Huff, the first sex between the Keeper and the Hero calls an angel down from heaven. As a counterbalance, a young female demoness is brought up from Hell. Eventually each of them becomes a "neutral" terrestrial--the angel is a cat familiar to another Keeper, the demoness is a normally-rebellious female teenager. They drift apart. The cat is a character in the third novel, "The Long Hot Summoning", the ex-demoness is nowhere to be seen.
* In ''Seven Days for an Eternity'', by Marc Lévy, God and Satan send each an agent to decide who should rule the Earth : God sends Zofia, and Lucifer sends Lucas. Problem is : they didn't count on the Angel and the Demon to meet and fall in love.
* Inverted by Creator/WilliamShakespeare in [[GoodAngelBadAngel Sonnet 114]]:
-->Two loves I have of comfort and despair,\\
Which like two spirits do suggest me still:\\
The better angel is a man right fair,\\
The worser spirit a woman colour'd ill.\\
To win me soon to hell, my female evil\\
Tempteth my better angel from my side,\\
And would corrupt my saint to be a devil,\\
Wooing his purity with her foul pride...
* [[http://www.tor.com/2016/03/15/your-orisons-may-be-recorded/ "Your Orisons May Be Recorded"]] by Laurie Penny is about a female angel working in Heaven's call centre, whose cubicle mate - following the merger - is a male demon.

[[folder: Live Action TV]]
* One ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' episode has two guardians of [[EldritchAbomination The Hollow]], a female angel representing Good and a male demon representing Evil. Of course in this case it only appears to be symbolic, as both guardians are neutral, having dedicated their lives to preventing The Hollow from being released by either side.
* The ''[[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]]'' short [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TbFxQtbwa5g "Out of This World"]] follows the trope, although the theology is rather sketchy.
* {{Averted}}[=/=]{{Inverted}} in ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': Most of the angels we've seen have taken male humans as vessels, and demons' hosts are more-or-less split 50/50. Demons [[spoiler:are damned human souls hopelessly corrupted from centuries in Hell, and the humans they once were are, again, split between men and women]]. We don't know if angels have genders the way we think of gender, and haven't seen the angels' true forms, but they're suggested to be in EldritchAbomination territory.
** {{Inverted}} in the episode "Caged Heat" where male angel Castiel gets French-kissed by female demon Meg. The two of them displayed [[UnresolvedSexualTension UST]] signals long before that episode. Inverted in general by Ruby, Meg, Abaddon, and Lilith.
** Played straight with Anna, who is the first female angel we see, and is probably the nicest ([[spoiler:[[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds at]] [[BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil first]]]]). There are more female angels besides her, but they tend to be either villainous (Naomi) or not featured enough for us to know much about their personalities (Hester and Rachel). Hannah seems to be breaking that pattern, as she's on Castiel's side and has gotten a decent amount of screen time.
** ArchangelRaphael is in a male vessel, Donnie Finnerman, most of the time, but when that vessel is destroyed, his new vessel [[GenderBender is female]].
* Inverted in the ''Series/TalesFromTheDarkside'' episode "Let the Games Begin." A male angel and a female demon have a contest over a man's soul. They get together at the end of the episode.

[[folder: Music]]
* Trans-Siberian Orchestra's "Beethoven's Last Night" features the male demon Mephistopheles and a more "angel-like" female -- .
albeit not an angel, but the [[AnthropomorphicPersonification incarnation of Fate]]. And her son {{Twist| Ending}} is the same sort of being.
* Extreme metal bands that use the SopranoAndGravel, with the female vocalists doing soft vocals while the male ones do harsh vocals invoke this trope in a symbolic manner.
* In the music video of the song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0hXq6vFPyU Aku no Tenshi to Seigi no Akuma]] (which is also the seventh ending from ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'') the "angel" character is played by a woman, while the "demon" character is played by a man.

[[folder: Mythology]]
* Ma'at and Apep in Myth/EgyptianMythology

[[folder: Pinball]]
* In ''Pinball/{{Junkyard}}'', an angel and demon [[GoodAngelBadAngel advise you on what junk to collect next]].

[[folder: Religion]]
* Averted in Christian tradition, where the angels are often believed to be all male. As the demons are fallen angels, they would be all male as well by default.
** Actually, most Christian traditions have it so angels have spiritual, and not physical, bodies, meaning that they are neither male nor female. Though it is true that when they show up in media they look male.

[[folder: Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/AnimaBeyondFantasy'': All but one of the seven Beryls -- godly spirits of light, named after archangels in the setting -- are female, and all but one of the seven Shajads -- godly spirits of darkness, opposite to the former and usually named after demons or devils -- are male.
* Averted in ''TabletopGame/DemonTheFallen'', where both sides were both genders. Granted, the demons ''started'' as angels. This is a Abrahamic world... to an extent.
* Subverted in ''TabletopGame/{{Infernum}}'' where angels can be genderless or of either gender, while all demons except [[HornyDevils Malcubi]] are genderless. Also, there is no artwork of female angels in any of the rulebooks, and many female demons (some of which are FanDisservice -- such as one 'she-demon' that is basically a four-breasted wolf-woman with tentacles instead of legs).
** Inverted by Riethii and Purity, a fallen angel and a [[HornyDevils succubus]] who [[UnholyMatrimony fell in what passes for love in Hell]] before [[spoiler:Purity [[YouHaveFailedMe killed Riethii for screwing up]]]].
* In ''MagicTheGathering'', all angels are female (with the exception of one AlternateUniverse and one instance of EarlyInstallmentWeirdness). This was one of the first notable appearances of female angels as ''warriors'', which remains a nearly universal trait of angels in ''Magic''. Their clothing has varied from {{Stripperiffic}} ([[http://magiccards.info/pch/en/92.html Razia]]) to, more frequently, [[http://magiccards.info/query?q=t%3A%22angel%22&s=cname&v=card&p=2 full plate armor]]. Demons are usually so twisted and monstrous that questions of sex hardly arise, but those that do have a human or semi-human appearance are almost all male.
** Innistrad prominently feature a conflict between the archangel [[http://magiccards.info/avr/en/6.html Avacyn]] and the obviously male archdemon [[http://magiccards.info/avr/en/106.html Griselbrand]].

[[folder: Theatre]]
* In ''Auto da Barca do Inferno'' by Gil Vicente the demon is usually portrayed by a male actor and the angel by a female actor, even if neither are identified by sex in the original work. The most modern version can be seen as a subversion though, [[LightIsNotGood as the angel is just as evil as the devil]].
* An amateur production of ''Theatre/DoctorFaustus'' inverted this; the good angel was played by an old man, while the bad angel/demons were all played by young women.
* In Peter Ustinov's ''The Love of Four Colonels'', they appear as "the Good Fairy" and "the Wicked Fairy"... but they were also the supernatural actors in the Garden of Eden.

[[folder: Video Games]]
* The ''VideoGame/SimCity'' clone ''VideoGame/{{Afterlife}}'' uses this with your advisors. It goes a step farther, portraying the Angel Aria as TheDitz and the Demon [[MagnificentBastard Jasper]] as a DeadpanSnarker.
* Averted, somewhat, in ''VideoGame/{{Darksiders}}'', in which both the angels and the demons are mostly male, and the angels can be either masculine (Abaddon) or feminine (Azrael). There are also notable females on both sides, the angels having Uriel, and the demons having Silitha, Tiamat, Lilith. It should be noted, though, that many Darksiders characters are based on figures from Babylonian/Greek/Roman/Judeo-Christian mythology.
* ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'' has a picture of an female angel and a male demon for the health and mana orbs respectively. Be that as it may, this doesn't apply to the characters, as both Angels and Demons are portrayed with both male and female, both sides mostly male. The backstory, on the other hand, inverts it with StarCrossedLovers Inarius and Lilith, the former being a male angel and the latter a female demon.
* In ''VideoGame/DMCDevilMayCry'' Dante and Vergil are Nephilim, a.k.a. the sons of a demon (Sparda) and an angel (Eva), and thus have incredible {{Hybrid Power}}s. Albeit the game has some female demons too.
* Chaos and Cosmos (technically a god and goddess) from ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy''.
* Necro and Undine, Dizzy's Wings from ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear''.
** And, because every ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' example needs a [[SpiritualSuccessor follow-up]] example from ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'': consider [[DarkIsNotEvil Ragna]] and [[PersonOfMassDestruction Nu]]. The former is a BoisterousBruiser-type who uses his full power by releasing "restriction [[NumberOfTheBeast 666]]." The latter is a mecha-woman with [[FeatherMotif bladed wings]] who [[{{Yandere}} wants nothing more]] than [[spoiler: to [[UnusualEuphemism impale Ragna with a giant sword in an act of creation]]. The end result of this will bring about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, [[StableTimeLoop 100 years ago]]]].
* ''VideoGame/HeroesOfMightAndMagic V'' has female Angels and male Devils (though there are female demons). In previous games, they were both male. It's debatable whether angels are female or just {{Bishonen}} though.
* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword''
** It is revealed that the conflict over the possession of [[CosmicKeystone The Triforce]] that [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda the series]] revolves around boils down to two God-like beings who wish to use it for their own purposes. The Goddess Hylia wished to protect it from evil forces while the Demon King, Demise, wished to obtain it for absolute domination. The true form of Hylia is not seen in the game, but depictions of her portray her as an angelic woman. Demise isn't seen until the very end of the game, but his true form is extremely masculine (people say he resembles [[VideoGame/StreetFighter Akuma]]).
** This also extends to their WeaponOfChoice. Fi is a [[TheStoic stoic]], almost computer-like feminine spirit that inhabits and transforms into the Goddess/Master Sword. Ghirahim is a flamboyant, overly emotional masculine spirit that does the same for the Demon Tribe Swords of Despair.
** In general, most powerful forces of good are female: Hylia, Zelda, the Golden Goddesses, the Oracles and the Great Fairies. In contrast all of the major villains are male: Demise, Ganondorf, Vaati, Yuuga. Intermediate forces, such as the sages and other animal and tree spirits, are either-or.
* Averted in ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights 1'' and ''[[VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2 2]]''. When the outer planes appear, their denizens are usually demons or devils of both genders, and the only full-blooded angel to feature in either game is male.
* Inverted in ''[[VideoGame/{{Painkiller}} Painkiller: Overdose]]'' in that the main character Belial is the son of a female demon and a male angel.
* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' has the duo of Cresselia and Darkrai. The former is an angelic-looking bringer of good dreams who is always a female, the latter is a shadowy creature of darkness who induces nightmares (and while Darkrai has NoBiologicalSex, most portrayals of it make it masculine). The "demon" aspect of Darkrai, however, is ([[VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonExplorers usually]]) {{downplayed|Trope}}, if it's present at all.
* ''VideoGame/RuneScape'' has a dungeon where armies from the God Wars are still battling it out. The leaders of two of those armies are an [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Icyene]] named Commander Zilyana and a demon named K'ril Tsutsaroth. The two appear to be rivals, and are often seen together.
* A variation of this occurs ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld''. Early in the opening cutscene, players are visited by two supernatural beings: the first is a WomanInWhite who insists that it's [[TeamSwitzerland not her place to intervene]], that it's up to you to decide your path and warns you that the [[EldritchAbomination voices that whisper in your sleep]] will try to corrupt you, ultimately bestowing power upon you with a swarm of bees; the second is a man [[EvilWearsBlack dressed all in black]], who claims that he's there to "[[PathOfInspiration guide you to the light]]," that you'll have to make the right choices and that the voices speak the truth - and then bestows power on you with a [[FliesEqualsEvil swarm of flies]]. Later on, they even manifest energy wings ColorCodedForYourConvenience: white for the woman, red-and-black for the man. [[spoiler: However, they're both angels, just from different factions. They reappear at the end of the game to provide counsel for the players after they've decided what to do with the Dreamer's prison: reinforcing the prison gives you an interview with the woman, destroying the restraints prompts the man to appear]].
* ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiStrangeJourney'': [[spoiler:Zelenin (transformed into an Angel) and Jimenez (fused with a Demon)]]. In general, however, the series averts the trope - angels are for the most part genderless, and demons come in all shades.
* Angel and Devil in ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}''.
** Due to the limitations of the UsefulNotes/PlayStation, many people came away with the impression that Angel had epic sideburns, blurring the issue somewhat.
* ''VideoGame/AVeryLongRopeToTheTopOfTheSky'': The {{God}} figure is The Mother, while the Devil figure is The Eater, who's refered to with 'he'.
* ''VideoGame/BendyAndTheInkMachine'' centers around a demon-based cartoon character, Bendy. His DistaffCounterpart, Alice Angel, is introduced after the first chapter.

[[folder: Webcomics]]
* Inverted in [[http://www.egscomics.com/sketchbook/?date=2002-08-11 this]] ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' filler strip.
* Seraphim and Asmodeus in ''Webcomic/{{Megatokyo}}''.
* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', the Bureaucratic Devas and the celestial [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0193.html here]] are both female, and the IFCC Directors and Qarr are all male. Sabine gets a pass for being a HornyDevil.
* The Italy web-comic ''Sacro e Profano'' feature the sexy love-story of a beautiful angel Angelina and the horny male devil Damiano. They CantHaveSexEver until the marriage.
* Buwaro & Kieri, main characters in ''Webcomic/SlightlyDamned''. But Buwaro starts out completely naive and un-demon-like, and eventually he and Kieri fall in love. Other angels and demons come in both genders.

[[folder: Western Animation]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/AaaghItsTheMrHellShow'' The episode "From Here to Paternity" reveals that Mr. Hell (A male demon) has an illegitimate child with a female angel.
* Raf and Sulfus from ''WesternAnimation/AngelsFriends''.
* ''[[WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts Donald's Better Self]]'' showcases the struggle between DonaldDuck's [[GoodAngelBadAngel responsible and devious personalities]]; while they're both clearly male, what with looking exactly like Don, his good self is voiced by a woman. Oh, and both angel and devil's voices are easy to understand, unlike Don himself.
* Likewise, in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', Vaatu, the spirit of darkness, is male, and Raava, the spirit of light, is female. Exceptionally bizarre because they draw on Yin-Yang symbolism, which assigns darkness to women and light to men. A {{downplayed|Trope}} example, as both Raava and Vaatu are completely inhuman in appearance, and identical in every way but their color scheme.
* In ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' the Daughter is the embodiment of the Light side of the Force, while the son is the incarnation of TheDarkSide.
