* The fourth ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' movie mostly takes place in Hell. The first layer of Hell is a "city" of floating gray blocks with blue walkways between them all under a [[RedSkyTakeWarning red sky]]. The guards, called Kushanada, mostly patrol this layer, which contains damned souls that have gone insane. The second layer is a vast sea with stone platforms and giant bowl-like sculptures shaped like lillies floating on it. At least one has a Kushanada skeleton impaled within it. The sky here is a lavender color. The third layer has the bottom of the sea as its "sky" and is made of several plateaus pockmarked with pits of yellow liquid. The liquid can harm souls and is deep enough to hide Kushanada. The spaces between the palteaus are filled with clouds. The fourth layer is covered in dunes of blue grit, which formed from countless damned souls [[CessationOfExistence dying again]]. The most prominent landmark is a Stonehenge-like structure that partly encircles a LavaPit that has a giant humanoid skeleton halfway out of it. The horizon is concealed by yellow clouds which also fill the sky. The lowest layer is dotted with irregular pillars topped with lava pits. The Kushanada can emerge from the pillars. Rivers of lava flow between the pillars under a perpetual thunderstorm. Bones of various sizes cover most of the solid ground there.

* ''CtrlAltDel'', like Dante, gives [[http://www.cad-comic.com/cad/20090928 nine circles]], but they're for the different types of bastard you encounter in [=MMOs=]. {{Griefer}}s are forever spawn-camped, [[NinjaLooting Ninja Looters]] roll a 1 on every drop, and so on.

* In the ''IncarnationsOfImmortality'' series, both Heaven and Hell possess different circles/regions. Where you end up depends on what kind of person you were in life. In Heaven you go to different circles if you were a philosopher or a military leader. In Hell people who litter ([[KnightTemplar yes]]) are forced to pick up litter in the freezing cold without any clothes until they've picked up as much litter as they contributed to, directly or indirectly, in life... though since this was shown and explained by Satan while giving a third party a supervised "tour" of Hell, its truthfulness is highly questionable, at best.

* ''FanFic/StarsAbove'': The Nine, the story's antagonists, modeled themselves after the Circles of Hell in ''TheDivineComedy''.

* 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.
