** Later in the game, [[spoiler: Colette]] gets a spell that grants a status boost. How is this portrayed? By making your entire party molt pink feathers constantly.
** Somewhat [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in the case of angels other than Remiel, since they have energy wings instead of the kind with bird feathers.

* In an interesting case, the powers of the psychic Zap in, well, ''Webcomic/{{Zap}}'' often manifest as glowing wing-like shapes. During an epic showdown, a carnival case full of stuffed animals is destroyed, filling the air with golden feathers.

* While ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' character Jin Kazama does not usually leave a trail of feathers wherever he goes in his Devil Jin form, he is not excempt from this trope: in his Tekken 4 ending, Devil Jin escapes Honmaru through the roof, leaving behind a rain of black feathers (among them a single white one, symbolizing the good in him). The same scene is used as the very first visual of the Tekken 5 opening.

** This is also carried over into ''VideoGame/{{Dissidia}}''. Play with the extended battle openings on, and both Sephiroth and Ultimecia will enter with falling black feathers fluttering around them. Ultimecia actually takes this a step further by molting constantly all throughout any battle with her. If you don't know what's going on, the first time you see it you may be prompted to think your PSP is developing dead pixels.

* ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'' subjects Pit to this trope. Every time he flies, he seems to lose a ton of feathers. But he's using a magic one (the move was based off a powerup from ''VideoGame/KidIcarus'') so that's okay.
