"Archangels are fierce. They're absolute. They're heaven's most terrifying weapon."
― Castiel to Dean Winchester (Supernatural)
"He's a King-Angel of the Cherubim Alpha Battalion. And if that doesn't mean much to you - Imagine a being whose every heartbeat is a thousand Hiroshimas, whose gaze can strip flesh from bone. Whose blood is the universal solvent, an acid ten thousand times purer than any on Earth. If you can imagine that, you just about imagine Asmodel."
― Zauriel (DC Comics)

The user can have the traits and abilities of archangels (literally chief angel), angel lords who herald other angels. They possess incredible supernatural power and dominion over other angels and at times given charge over a specific area or function. On top of their gargantuan personal power, they usually rule over their own divine plane and it's legions of angels as chief princes/princesses, making them some of the most powerful defenses against the unholy legions.

Beings similar to archangels are found in a number of religious traditions (including Zoroastrianism); but the word "archangel" itself is usually associated with the Abrahamic religions of Christianity, Judaism and Islam.
