A FateWorseThanDeath that in some stories happens after death, just as FluffyCloudHeaven is TheThemeParkVersion of {{Heaven}}, Fire And Brimstone Hell is the Theme Park version of {{Hell}}. Generally, if it isn't an IronicHell, HellisWar, the BloodyBowelsOfHell or AHellOfATime, it's this. And even then, you can expect the odd brazier and stalactite.

* {{Deconstructed}} in ''[[https://youtu.be/uPLeAvtMcik BADLOGIC]]'' when a recently killed thief points out torturing sinners for their evil deeds {{Satan}} would actually make him a "good guy", despite his protests. [[spoiler:The devil eventually concedes and offers the thief one wish.]]

* Stygia in ''VideoGame/NexusWar'' games manages to be both this and EvilIsDeathlyCold simultaneously, side by side. Some later versions of the game let demons spread the fire and brimstone to the mortal world to add a PhysicalHell subsidiary.

* The ThemeParkVersion of Hell as this is actually an ''expansion'' from some rather minimalist descriptions of Hell in Literature/TheBible; it mentions everyone (including Satan & Company) there doing a whole lot of burning for all eternity, and not much else. Ask anyone from a more conservative denomination about Hell, and you'll probably hear about this minimalist version. Talk to someone from a more liberal denomination, and you are more likely to get a reference to "Eternal Separation" than fire and brimstone. What that actually means depends on who you're asking.

* Affirmed ''and'' subverted in ''Webcomic/CaseyAndAndy''. Satan's realm Hell is a realm of sulfur, fire, and brimstone. But since she's in rebellion against God, she sees no reason to torture souls whose only crime is disobeying God. The only souls she tortures are those who have ticked her off personally. (Which includes UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler, who just ticks a lot of people off for some reason.)

* [[UnbuiltTrope In spite of everything]], Dante's ''[[Literature/TheDivineComedy Inferno]]'' actually ''averted'' this trope for the most part. Naked flames do feature, but only in four of the twenty-four divisions of Dante's Hell (Heretics lie in flaming tombs, blasphemers, usurers, and homosexuals are in a desert with fire raining down, simoniacs are stuck upside down with flames burning at their feet, and evil counselors are stuck in individual tongues of flame) and just one of the seven regions in his Purgatory (the seventh terrence, for the repentant lustful). You are as likely to be boiled, drowned, chopped, or frozen as you are burnt in Dante's ''Inferno.'' [[SerialEscalation Furthermore]], Satan (along with other traitors) is imprisoned in the deepest level of Hell- Cocytus, [[EvilIsDeathlyCold a frozen lake]].

** "Treehouse of Horror IV: The Devil and Homer Simpson": After Homer eats a piece of a "forbidden doughnut" kept in his refrigerator, Homer is immediately sent to Hell. There, Homer is sent to the "[[IronicHell ironic punishments]]" department, where he is forced to eat thousands of doughnuts. However, because of his insatiable appetite, Homer eats all of the doughnuts ... and (with his body in a humorously bloated state) demands that Satan give him more!

*** A later Treehouse of Horror episode has Bart and Lisa be sent to the School of Hell, which is situated in a firy hell and where all students (including Bart and Lisa) have demonic appearances and learn about how to deliver [[IronicHell properly ironic]] eternal torment to sinners. Bart likes it so much he ends up transferring there.

* While not Hell itself, ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series has the Deadlands, Mehrunes Dagon's realm of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', greatly resemble this form of Hell. Other Daedric realms are much different, though. There's also a bit of subversion in that canonically, the Deadlands, despite their volcanic landscape, are extremely ''cold'' - in one quest when you're leading the Bruma Guard into an Oblivion Gate, the captain complains about how cold it is. And he's a [[HornyVikings Nord]], [[TheWorfEffect which are naturally resistant to cold.]]
** The torture area in Mankar Camoran's Paradise seems to also fit very well.

While not Hell itself, ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' the series has the Deadlands, [[IDontLikeTheSoundOfThatPlace Deadlands]], the [[EldritchLocation Daedric plane]] of Mehrunes Dagon's realm Dagon, [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[DestroyerDeity Destruction]]. Crossing over with {{Mordor}}, the Deadlands is a bleak and barren realm, containing wastelands of blackened rock, seas of lava, and partially destroyed structures. However, the Deadlands subverts the "fire" part of the trope as, despite the flowing lava all over the place, mortals who visit are said to feel an "[[EvilIsDeathlyCold unearthly chill]]" within the realm.

There's also a bit of subversion in that canonically, you get to visit the Deadlands, despite their volcanic landscape, are extremely ''cold'' - in one quest when you're leading Deadlands and it really fits the Bruma Guard into an Oblivion Gate, the captain complains about how cold it is.

* In ''Videogame/YuGiOhMonsterCapsuleGB'', Seto Kaiba's RPG world is a literal representation of Hell, though only the first layer has fire. The second layers deal with lightning and darkness.
