* Neron and other comic book devils live in a FireAndBrimstoneHell, unless it's a [[VertigoComics Vertigo]] book.
** The [[VertigoComics Vertigo]] Hell is more complex. Lucifer was accorded rulership over Hell which he accepted because it was the most distant place in Creation from the Creator. Demons and devils flocked there because Lucifer was the most powerful anti-God leader. The damned souls of mortals are all ''self-exiled'' - they impose their own punishments and compel Hell to torture them because they think they deserve it. (Of course, the demons eventually set up an economy based on these souls, which makes them anxious to collect more.)

* Tartarus, the afterlife of the condemned in ''Fanfic/EmpathTheLuckiestSmurf'', resembles this -- or at least it did in the version Empath was thrust into in "Smurfing In Heaven" [[spoiler:before he realized that both it and the Elysium he visited weren't real]].

* MarvelComics Hell-Lords are demons that control their own dimensions. Most of those "pocket hells" are based on this version, especially Mephisto's. It's almost certainly done on purpose, because every single one of the Hell-Lords is trying to convince everybody that he is real {{Satan}} and his Hell is real Hell. Also when Hell-Lords and rulers of other kinds of afterlives (like Hades from Myth/GreekMythology or Hela's domain from Myth/NorseMythology) choose to combine them into some kind of "MMORPG Afterlife", something like that was created in between.

* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', a Soul Reaper's job is to redeem souls that have turned into Hollows, allowing them to pass on to the Soul Society...however, those who committed heinous crimes ''before'' dying are condemned to Hell upon their defeat, implied to be of the fire and brimstone variety. [[spoiler:Hell is briefly seen both in the manga (first when Rukia sends a particularly evil Hollow there, and later again when Szayel and Aaroniero are thrown into it) and then in more detail in ''Bleach: Hell Verse'' (which has Ichigo ''breaking into it'')]].

* [[UnbuiltTrope In spite of everything]], Dante Alighieri'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, together with the worst damned of all, remains imprisoned in Hell's center - a ''glacial'' cavern.

* [[spoiler:Medic]] pays a visit here in the ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' comics, after being shot. It takes the form of [[CelestialBureaucracy the Devil's reasonably nice office]], but rocky spikes, rivers of magma, and an awful lot of orange light can be seen out of the windows.

* A man goes to Florida for vacation. As his wife will only join him a few days later, he writes her a short letter that gets lost in the mail and delivered to a recently-dead pastor with the same name. The widow reads the letter and faints, and after sending for an ambulance the onlookers read the message: "Sure is hot down here. Can't wait for you to get here next week!"
