- Basic Trope: Angels appear as extraordinarily beautiful humanoids.
- Straight: Angela appears to Alice and Bob as a beautiful Woman in White, with flowing curly hair, shiny eyes, and flawless skin, plus large birdlike wings and a Holy Halo.
- Exaggerated: Angela is so beautiful that Alice and Bob can't even look at her.
- Downplayed: Angela looks like an ordinary, albeit conventionally-attractive young woman.
- Justified: Angels take on humanoid forms so that humans will trust them more easily. And it helps to look good in a world where Beauty Equals Goodness.
- Angels are so full of Incorruptible Pure Pureness in this setting that their inner beauty is reflected in their outward appearance.
- Inverted: Angela is an Eldritch Abomination, right out of an H. P. Lovecraft novel. There's a reason that the first thing she says to Alice and Bob is "Fear not."
- Subverted: Although certainly not ugly, Angela looks very ordinary for the setting; why, she doesn't even have wings.
- Double Subverted: She is an Angel Unaware, and everyone describes her as being the World's Most Beautiful Woman.
- She is described as being very angelic, and when she dies of Victorian Novel Disease, she turns into an angel.
- Aliens and/or fae in this setting are just like angels, and may even look like Western perceptions of angels. (For example, the "Nordic" aliens.)
- Except she's more like an Ascended Demon, and therefore gets the privilege of beauty.
- She doesn't really need those things, just uses them as part of The Masquerade.
- Alternatively, she is excellent at applying makeup and choosing flattering clothes to enhance her looks.
- Parodied: Angela is a Drag Queen.
- Zig Zagged: Some angels are beautiful, others are average-looking, and still others are total Gonks or Eldritch Abominations.
- Averted: Angels look like ordinary, average-looking people in this setting.
- Angels don't exist in this setting.
- Enforced: Beauty Equals Goodness
- Lampshaded: ???
- Invoked: ???

- Defied: ???
- Discussed: ???
