- "Hiya, I'm Cletus! Welcome to Heaven! Guess you did something good to get here!"
- ―Cletus, introducing himself
Cletus is a Cherub who appears in the Helluva Boss episode "C.H.E.R.U.B”. He is a member of C.H.E.R.U.B. Along with his fellow co-workers, he was banished from Heaven due to accidentally killing a human.
Much like most Cherubs, Cletus has an angelic glow and wings with his lines being purple. He looks most human though, not having fur or hooves for feet. He has circles as his blush, similar to Charlie. His eyes are large, and light purple in color. He possesses a halo, though it is unknown if he still has it. His overalls, matching his light ginger hair, are an orange with a mix of pinkish red with two silver buttons. Under the overalls he wears a light baby yellow shirt with a white collar. His eyebrows are a darker purple, but still light.
Like his fellow cherubs, Cletus is very optimistic and tries his best to save Lyle Lipton, although he is the one who ends up killing him by accident. While usually happy and carefree, Cletus is shown to get very angry when I.M.P gets in the way of his attempts to save Lyle; he even goes far as trying to shoot them multiple times with a bow. He also appears to be incredibly self righteous, even more so than his colleagues. He even acknowledges the man he's trying to save is a terrible person and by that extent, seemingly knowing he's beyond their help but he's determined to save him anyway. However, this appears to be more out of obligation to his job rather than any moral obligation. He appears to get rather emotional, as shown from when he was expelled from Heaven.
- Flight: Along with all the other abilities of Cherubs, Cletus can fly due to his wings, and can fly quite quickly and is swift with his wings in battle, even though his wings are quite small.
- Weapon Summoning: Like all other Cherubs, Cletus has the ability to summon an angelic crossbow that's unique to him, as well as golden arrows to load it with. When released from the crossbow, these arrows leave behind a visible trail of bright sparkling golden light.
- Musical Talent: He is shown to have the ability to sing well in the beginning of the episode "C.H.E.R.U.B.."
- The members of C.H.E.R.U.B. are the first cherubs shown to be banished from Heaven onscreen. It is currently unknown if Cletus is still on Earth or somewhere else.
- Like his colleagues, Cletus's name derives from a country famous for shepherding. In his case, "Cletus" is a Greek name.
- Cletus is currently the only known humanoid Cherub, as all the other Cherubs seen thus far are anthropomorphic animals such as lambs, fawns, and bumblebees.
- He shares the same voice actor as Wally Wackford, with both of them being voiced by Don Darryl Rivera. Don also voiced Jackson Wells in the Zoophobia Short Bad Luck Jack.
