It’s possible that Jude would have considered Gabriel an archangel, since it’s possible that Jude pulled Michael’s title from a less-than-canonical source. I was just commenting that “if” we all indeed have a guardian angel then what is going on when it seems that he doesn’t do anything. Thank you for providing more information to better help me in studying and understanding the Word.
Cherubim – Art by Art by KelbremDuskThis portrayal is nothing like what we imagine them to be. Cherubim, commonly known as cherubs, are depicted as chubby, beautiful, naked children with wings in art, as represented by Renaissance sculptors who revived the ancient practice of putti. Let’s take a look at some of the most well-known depictions of the angels we’re familiar with and how much they differ from their Biblical descriptions. It is derived from the Greek word “angelos,” and the Greek word, in turn, comes from the Hebrew word “Mal’ akh,” which stands for messenger. According to the Bible, it would appear that we’re in the wrong.
What Does the Bible Say About Angels?
Not to be confused with One-Winged Angel, though many One Winged Angel forms can be these as well. Often invokes Holy Is Not Safe, with the angels being dangerous due to their sheer power and being on a higher plane from us Puny Earthlings. Despite the appearance, these angels can still be good, though if they’re evil or God Is Evil expect this to be more common. It is only with extreme rarity that the angelic lords make themselves physically known to humans. As Augustine of Hippo would remark, the angels were experiencing something new as the creation of God unfolded.

Jesus does warn that little children have angels who stand before God the Father—but it is a warning against causing children to stumble. It could mean that at the time of Jesus, little children received special attention from angels. But Jesus’ message seems to have more to do with the deep trouble you’ll be in if you mess with these kids than it does with the angels protecting them.
Even though the Malakim resembled humans, there was no mention of their having wings in the Bible. Angels take more a spiritual form as opposed to a physical one. There is no real description of what Angel’s true form is, but there are some descriptions of the bodies they assume, and they are very strange.
For the Final Boss fight, Sephiroth himself uses both Jenova’s mutagenic cells and the power of the planet to transform into two angelic forms. Both have weird misshapen wings among other freaky deformities, and the second is the Trope Namer for One-Winged Angel. Angel in Chainsaw Man is an angelic demon who’s the Anthropomorphic Personification of mankind’s fear of angels. They are vastly powerful and almost omniscient Humanoid Abominations with control over causality, and serve as the Big Bad Duumvirate of the setting. And like the lesser Apostles, they were humans who became demons through a Deal with the Devil. A sub-trope of Eldritch Abomination and Our Angels Are Different.
In Krampus, the title character has a number of Living Toys as henchmen, and one of them is a Creepy Doll version of the kind of angel that might go on top of a Christmas tree. Angels of the Second Sphere work as heavenly governors of the creation by subjecting matter and guiding and ruling the spirits. Angels were created by God before the creation of the universe and Adam and Eve and they are deemed as higher beings thus they are considered to be superior to mankind.
Kyodai from Kamigawa is not technically an angel, but fills a similar role, being the benevolent Top God. She also looks like a dragon made entirely of human arms and creepy porcelain masks. In the Hellboy novel On Earth As It Is In Hell by Brian Hodge, Seraphim can be summoned by anyone for any purpose, as long as it involves destruction.
Because if no other archangel fights the prince of Persia, how could Gabriel be just a “regular angel” and have the courage to fight. So here Gabriel is clearly talking about earthly kings. And accurate angels know Cyrus was also raised up to do God´s will. So surely they are being strengthened and guided somehow by the good angels, probably Gabriel.
