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 extensively. For the most part, their faces are obscured by helmets, but [[MisterFanservice Angemon]] and [[MissFanservice Angewomon]] otherwise qualify well. [[http://images.wikia.com/digimon/images/3/30/Ofanimon_4-079_%28DJ%29.png Ophanimon's unmasked artwork]] clinches this in her case. [[BadassAdorable Cherubimon]] is a non-human example.
* 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: 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 Music/{{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 ''TabletopGame/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 ''VideoGame/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 ''VideoGame/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: 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 ''WesternAnimation/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
