* Subverted in an ComicBook/XMen annual where the team goes to Hell to save Nightcrawler's soul. Since supernatural realms are out of their element (this was before Comicbook/{{Magik}} became the X-Men's resident sorceress), they enliste Dr. Strange's help, but he notices that "hell" is exactly as it's described in ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'' and is nothing like the previous time he had been there. Sure enough, it turned out to be an illusion created by Nightcrawler's adoptive mother, sorceress Margoli Szardos.

* The ComicBook/XMen went into Hell once to save Nightcrawler's soul. It resembled Dante's Hell.

* Midkemia in ''TheRiftwarCycle'' is sandwiched between seven hells and seven heavens, though it is pointed out that whether a plane is heaven or hell is subjective to the individual (i.e. Midkemia would be considered the First Heaven to someone from what they consider the First Hell, and vice versa). Also, it may go further up ''and'' down; it's merely that once you reach the seventh layer either direction, human minds are no longer capable of comprehending what's going on.

* In L. Jagi Lamplighter's ''[[ProsperosDaughter Prospero in Hell]]'', there are regions to Hell. Worse, there are Hellwinds which will blow you back to the appropriate place, even if you're a visiting still alive mortal. * In ASongOfIceAndFire the main religion of Westeros is known to have seven gods (one of whom, the Father, is explicitly identified as a judge,) and seven hells, but no details of the hells are ever given, so it's unknown whether they belong to specific gods or are tailored to specific sins or have any sort of hierarchy of punishment.

* [[Creator/{{Nippon Ichi}} Nippon Ichi]], particularly ''Videogame/MakaiKingdom'' and ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' not only has TheMultiverse, but multiple Netherworlds; occasionally warring on each other; much like the TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons version; but most are not nearly as GrimDark.

** Note that while it's often depicted as a series of vertically stacked discs, as in the page image, Dante's Hell is a subterranean bowl, with the levels descending in rings, so they are literally circles of hell (except the bottom one, which is a frozen lake).

* In both ''{{Warhammer}}'' and ''{{Warhammer 40000}}'', the [[GodOfEvil Chaos God]] [[SenseFreak Slaanesh]]'s palace is described in these terms, ringed by the [[ArcNumber six]] Circles of Desire: Avidity, Gluttony, Carnality, Paramountcy, Vainglory and finally Indolence. Each layer serves as a defensive mechanism, so that an intruder may be turned into a lifeless golden statue after lingering too long in Avidity, fall prey to the [[HornyDevils Daemonettes]] inhabiting Carnality, or become [[LotusEaterMachine trapped in Indolence until their body crumbles to dust]].

* ''Roleplay/InfernoQuest'' shamelessly copies Dante's work, with it being noted in-universe that Dante's works were inspired by the Angels to educate people. However, Hell has changed quite a bit from how it was featured in Dante's work.
