Good Angel Bad Angel: Anime & Manga
  • Excel♥Saga
    • There's a Good Angel, Bad Angel scene in its first episode which culminates in "Good Excel" blowing away "Bad Excel" with a huge pistol ("The bullet of Justice caps Evil's ass!"). Good Excel later gets hauled off by teeny-tiny little Police Excel for murder, while Excel herself is confused and strangely philosophical.
    • Played straight but still very oddly in the manga: Watanabe is debating whether or not to give Hyatt CPR, and is so torn over his intentions that a battle erupts in his mind between Hypocrite Watanabe (dressed like an angel but actually the one representing his perverse side) and Bancho Watanabe (who's dressed as Jotaro Kujo from Jojos Bizarre Adventure).
  • Chiaki and Fujioka both have an angel and a devil appear behind them in the second episode of Minami-ke Okaeri.
  • Near the end of the Elfen Lied manga, it's revealed that "Lucy" (real name "Kaede") isn't the Hyde to Nyuu's Jekyll, but a semi-neutral personality that had been listening to her completely insane THIRD personality that only cared about exterminating humanity.
  • Played with in Dramacon, where the angel gets melodramatic and cheery over things she shouldn't and the devil mocks her for it.
    • Interestingly, the devil is pretty pragmatic. Both the angel and the devil also get bummed when things don't go well for Chriss, specifically with her love interest.
  • In Hidamari Sketch Miyako imagines her good angel being held back by her bad angel when she wants to do something good but finds her body unable to move.
  • Michael Hanagata's shoulder devil actually pops out of his afro in one episode of Wandaba Style. The angel didn't appear, but it's safe to assume that it's up there, too.
  • In Tramps Like Us, Sumire is divided between the Stripperiffic Black Violet and the conservatively dressed and shy Violet Blanche — Blanche always wins.
  • Eri from School Rumble (manga-only) has some when she invites Harima to her house.
  • In Seikon No Qwaser, Hana has an appearance by her shoulder angel and her shoulder devil. The devil is fanservice incarnate. The two of them get into a Big Ball of Violence around her head.
  • Akihisa, of Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu, has both a shoulder angel and a shoulder devil. The devil makes more appearances. Both of them are prone to snarky commentary.
  • Moriaki-sensei in Soredemo Machi Wa Mawatteiru is so square that in his angel-devil delusions he pictures them as hand-puppets he handles.
  • The title devil and angel occasionally take on this role in Risky Safety, usually acting as their current charge's voice of reason and/or font of chaos. Conveniently, they only need one shoulder to do this.
  • In one chapter of Hatenkou Yuugi, Rahzel's shoulder devil and angel showed up, followed by a Playboy Bunny version, a schoolgirl version, a maid, a scientist, a nurse, and so on. And then they all started drinking.
    Rahzel: Tons of little Rahzels are having a wild party in my brain.
  • The female protagonist of Hana Yori Dango had a good angel telling her not to marry a rich Jerkass and a bad angel telling her otherwise.
  • There's a scene in NEEDLESS where Blade tries to hit on a currently-crossdressing Cruz, only for Cruz to remind him he's a boy. Blade's angel and devil appear, and both tell him that gender doesn't matter, as long as he's cute.
  • In one of episodes of the DVD series Growing Up With Hello Kitty, Hello Kitty has trouble with patience and has to deal with this several times. Each time the devil wins, he does a Happy Dance. Eventually, the angel wins, but the devil is a sore loser. He shows up several more times, each time looking more battered and beaten and at the end vows to find a new impatient kid to pester.
  • Yandere Kanojo: Reina met them in the chapter where she tried to find out the reason Manabu wears glasses without need.
  • Cooking Papa: Araiwa's look and dress the same way (business suit) and only by their advices we can tell who's the good one and who's the bad one.
  • The gag manga Cut Away has a girl find a wallet. Immediately her inner angel and demon start arguing over what to do... soon joined by her inner Buddha and inner Shiva. Eventually all manner of inner mythological being joins in the debate ("And they all have my face!"), only to be silenced by her inner high-school principal.
    Friend: So what happened?
    Girl: They all went to their class reunion.
  • Early in Hayate the Combat Butler, Hayate's devil tells him to give up and just lie down and die, while his angel tells him not to give up hope...and suggests that he kidnap Nagi and hold her for ransom, which freaks out the devil.
    • Hinagiku gets her own versions late in the manga as well while she is sick in bed. Her angel self thinks she should just go to sleep to get better quickly, while her devil self thinks she should let Hayate (who's taking care of her) spoil her a bit. Hina covers devil!Hina in an empty cup and rolls over in her futon. Angel!Hina is proud of her...and then Hina calls to Hayate to ask for a peeled apple cut like rabbits. Her angel is upset but Hina argues that she is going to sleep, after letting Hayate spoil her for a bit.
  • Elyse in My Balls doesn't have a good/bad angel, but rather a tsun-tsun angel and a dere-dere angel. Yeah, that's right.
  • Dark Magical Girl Utau in Shugo Chara! has two Charas, Iru the Devil and Eru the Angel.
