We all know [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angels]] run the gamut from being [[LightIsNotGood light-based]] [[EldritchAbomination mind shattering horrors]] to the basically [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith human]], and the human flavor are almost always divinely hot. This rule is almost without exception.

Compare HornyDevils, for this trope's infernal counterpart ([[FallenAngel which may be literal]], in [[HotAsHell some]] [[{{Satan}} cases]]). Contrast DivinelyAppearingDemons. Their boss may also be a HotGod as well. Compare BeautyEqualsGoodness, which fits this ([[LightIsNotGood almost]]) perfectly. Not related to LovelyAngels.

A SubTrope of InhumanlyBeautifulRace.

[[folder: Advertising ]]

* An ad campaign for Lynx deodorant used the tagline "[[FallenAngel angels will fall]]", and showed hot female angels plunging from Heaven to earth to be near the guy spraying on Lynx. Axe ran a similar campaign in the US.
* The Victoria's Secret Angels

[[folder: Anime and Manga ]]

* Most of the angels of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' are of the EldritchAbomination variety, but Tabris, aka [[spoiler:Kaworu Nagisa]], fits this.
* ''SaintBeast'' features a [[CastFullOfPrettyBoys cast full of beautiful man-angels]].
* In ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'', every Goddess (who are themselves [[HotGod Hot Gods]]) has a very hot and barely-dressed angel to assist them with supernatural stuff.
* Dark and Krad of ''DNAngel''.
* ''Manga/{{Saki}}'': Nodoka's virtual form.
* ''VisualNovel/{{AIR}}'': Kannabi-no-Mikoto. Misuzu [[spoiler:who is the [[{{Reincarnation}} current incarnation]] of Kanna]] is often depicted this way outside the anime.
* ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' plays with this with the likes of Angemon and Angewomon (and their Digivolutions [=MagnaAngemon=], Seraphimon, Dominimon, and Ophanimon). It can be inferred that they play this trope straight, but they're both clad in [[CoolHelmet helmets]] [[TheFaceless that completely cover their faces]] (a glimpse of which can only be seen during [[TransformationSequence Digivolutions]]). It's for [[CoolMask similar reasons]] that it's unknown if their {{Evil Counterpart}}s [[FallenAngel Devimon and LadyDevimon]] (the latter of whom appears to be a {{Mystical White Hair}}ed girl) adhere to EvilIsSexy.
** [[http://images.wikia.com/digimon/images/3/30/Ofanimon_4-079_%28DJ%29.png Ophanimon's unmasked artwork]] from ''TabletopGame/{{Digimon}} Jintrix'' lends more credence to this trope for the more human-looking Angel Digimon.
* Nadeshiko Kinomoto in ''Manga/CardCaptorSakura''... and that was ''before'' she died and transformed into an angel in {{Heaven}}. (Lampshaded by her husband when they first met.)
* ''BlackButler'': [[spoiler: Ash and Angela]] both count, though [[CastFullOfPrettyBoys being pretty]] [[BishoujoGenre is hardly a rare trait]]. [[spoiler: May become [[FetishRetardant less]] (or [[EverybodyWantsTheHermaphrodite more]]) sexy when you find out [[VoluntaryShapeshifter they're]] [[GenderBender the same person]].]]
* ''Manga/MakaiOuji'' has some of these, but the most of the devils are just as pretty.

[[folder: Comic Books ]]

* Angela from ''{{Spawn}}''.
* Imed the Angel from the ''DemiTheDemoness'' comics.
* Charity, one half of the superhero Divangelic in ''Comicbook/{{Empowered}}''.

[[folder: Film ]]

* The final ghost of ''GhostsOfGirlfriendsPast'' appears as an incredibly beautiful angel.
* In ''Film/DateWithAnAngel'', the eponymous angel, who gets stranded on Earth after breaking her wing in a collision with a satellite, becomes the face of the 'Celestial Beauty' campaign being run by a cosmetics company.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Live Action TV ]]

* Ambassador Kosh in ''Series/BabylonFive'' is seen as such by various races [[spoiler:due to the Vorlon's AncientConspiracy to manipulate the younger races into being Vorlon pawns for the coming battle with the Shadows.]]
* Several examples in ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': [[MrFanservice Castiel]] is this to many fans; Michael, in the form of Michael Cohen and Jake Abel; Anna from Season 4 and 5; Season 6 briefly introduced another female angel named Rachel. Averted with [[BaldOfEvil Zachariah]]. These may not count as this trope however. They use [[WillingChanneler hosts]], so technically the fanbase is finding the human hosts pretty, not the actual angels. The only angel whose celestial form is explicitly described in-story as "beautiful" is [[{{Satan}} Lucifer]]. The angels themselves are actually of the EldritchAbomination variety, but the show has [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm never shown their true forms.]]

[[folder: Literature ]]

* Angels in ''{{Lamb}}'' take the form of ridiculously attractive blondes. The main angel, Raziel, is sufficiently handsome enough to [[StupidSexyFlanders regularly fluster Biff]] despite Biff's insistent heterosexuality and Raziel's [[BrainlessBeauty infuriating stupidity]].

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Music ]]

* According to {{Moby}}, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3YMxM1_S48&ob=av2e you are greeted into the afterlife by Cristina Ricci]].
* The girl in Ed Sheeran's "Give Me Love" music video is a cupid and she is clearly meant to evoke this.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Tabletop Games ]]

* A number of angel pictures on ''MagicTheGathering'' cards fit this, with the first Serra Angel picture (up to 4th edition) just being a mild one.
* Half-celestial races in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', currently known as devas, are known to have an otherworldly beauty.
** For related reasons, Aasimars (those with a celestial being in their ancestry) are also frequently quite beautiful.
* While most demons in ''TabletopGame/DemonTheFallen'' drive mortals who witness their true forms insane with horror, the few who still have low [[SanityMeter Torment]] do so with the angelic beauty they retained since the Days of Creation.
* Sanguinus, Primarch of the Blood Angels legion in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' qualifies. This trait also to a lesser degree applies to his chapter.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Video Games ]]

* Kyra, the Angel of Light, from the mythology of ''SepterraCore''.
* Most angels of the ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' universe, most prominently [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Flonne_9276.png Archangel]] [[Characters/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness Flonne]] and [[Characters/Disgaea4APromiseUnforgotten Vulcanus(?)]].
* Any time a being of angelic origins shows up in the ''NeverwinterNights'' modding community, she will be in possession of AngelicBeauty. Evanine in Tales of Arterra, Anera in Shadowlords, Melissa in Trials of the Academy, any others I haven't mentioned yet...
* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'': The Gardevoir species has a beautiful, feminine appearance (though [[DudeLooksLikeALady it's just as likely to be male as female]]). According to WordOfGod, it is supposed to resemble an angel, and its PokÚdex entries emphasize its [[GuardianAngel protective nature]].
* The ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' series largely averts this. The root-standard "Angel" is a young winged woman... covered in bondage straps, including one over her ''eyes''; it's actually pretty creepy. After that, angels come in two categories: harsh, masculine warrior, or HumanoidAbomination (in other words, close to the Biblical depiction). The only angels that could be described as pretty are Gabriel and Lucifer's angelic form (the one ''Persona 3 FES'' dubbed "Helel").
* While not exactly an angel (more like a member of the Heron, a WingedHumanoid race), Leanne from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius'' fits in nicely. Her older brothers Reyson and Rafiel are both examples as well.
* ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'': Zigzags this trope all over the place. Angels take on a wide variety of non-sexualized forms ([[WingedHumanoid Winged Humanoids]], [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Dragons]], [[BizarreAlienBiology Wheels]], and ''[[ETGaveUsWiFi hot rods]]'' for starters). However, hit them hard enough [[GlamourFailure and that all falls off]]. What's underneath is [[BodyHorror NOT pretty]]. Played more or less straight however with the Joys, who appear as hot, jiggly women-like humanoids. Gets mixed in with HotAsHell considering their behaviour however, given their tendency for ImmodestOrgasm.
** The trope is also played straight with [[BiggerBad Jubileus]].
* In VisualNovel/TrueLoveJunaiMonogatari, [[spoiler: the CatGirl[=/=]MagicalGirlfriend Anze's true form is this through and through. You [[DeusSexMachina must have sex with her]] to unlock it, though.]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* The Mortis arc of ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' features the Daughter, embodiment of the Light Side of the Force, who usually takes the form of a beautiful, young woman, who visibly [[PhosphorEssence glows]].
* When Sabrina and Salem go back in time to King Arthur's days in ''SabrinaTheAnimatedSeries''...
--> '''Arthur:''' Am I in heaven? For thou must be an angel.
--> '''Sabrina:''' (''giggling'') Thanketh thee a lot.
--> '''Salem:''' I thinketh I'm gonna be sicketh
