    My personal favorites:

    Movies ---
    1. The Matrix - Espionage feel
    2. The Terminator - The 2nd terminator movie. Think of Arnold as a fallen angel, disconnected from the machine but still able to do many things. Not an exact fit but still, good for inspiration
    3. Lucy - I know this one might be reaching but her abilities and her cold demeanor speaks of Demon

    TV Shows ---
    1. Supernatural - The "angel radio" and deaths of both angels and demons fits right in

    Bonus:
    Here is a WoD themed IMDB list:

    Not necessarily good inspiration for Demon, but frankly screams God Machine to me is Uzumaki, the body horror manga of Junji Ito. A bunch of weird stories seemingly unrelated except by their incorporation of a spiral of some variety. I feel like its an ideal sort of Occult Matrix, a strange overarcing theme that lends itself to numerous applications of horrible and weird happenings. Spirals happen everywhere in nature, thus you have numerous opportunities to tell horror stories with a loose theme.

    "The Booth at the End" manages to scream Demon, despite of being about people talking in a diner.

    The netflix show Travelers is a good source of inspiration. It came out after Demon I believe but shares a lot thematically.

    A lot of classic cyberpunk like Neuromancer and Snow Crash work as inspiration for Demon. Paranoia and nonsensical plots are the genre’s bread and butter

    Yes, might be my favorite of the classic World of Darkness, it's a toss between it and Werewolf. Loved all its books, ran it for a long campaign and I keep going back to it from time to time just because I enjoy it.

    But, and here I expose myself to danger in a way I almost always avoid, Descent is a way better game. There, I said it.

    Nothing less than going after all the Infinity Stones and use them to make them understand. Then, finally have a rest.

    (Sorry, it's this week's mood. Carry on)

    I'm not gonna lie, I was disappoint that the descent is not the judeo Christian variety, but upon reading about it I grew to love it

    21C Hermit do people not realise that angels and demons are not simply what one looks like aesthetically, but more of an idea? Because if it's seen that way than they truly are demons and angels. Besides one of the angels in the bible is literally described as a burning wheel with eyes, so classic demon angel aesthetic be damned
    Yeah, many don’t. It probably doesn’t help that Descent deals more with Gnostic angels than Judeo-Christian ones, which adds to the unfamiliarity.
