* The Hell in ''[[BillAndTedsExcellentAdventure Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey]]'' is somewhat like this. Being floating islands chained the to the main devil himself. When the two go to talk to him, the devil traps them in steel like corridors with rooms based on their worst nightmares (i.e. a psycho Easter bunny, a very creepy grandma and a DrillSergeantNasty) making it akin to an IronicHell as well.

*** Besides that fact, Shishio also appreciates his new surroundings because without anyone like Kenshin there, [[BadAss he'll]] have no trouble [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome conquering it!]]

* In ''VideoGame/AmberJourneysBeyond'', one of the ghosts you [[UnfinishedBusiness help out]] is [[spoiler: a crazed, ufo-obsessed gardener named Brice, who killed a girl he had been stalking for some time, prior to killing himself out of grief. When Brice figures this out, he suddenly hears what he thinks is a UFO arriving, complete with lights going out. But as he opens a hatch to investigate, his soul is dragged away - along with the hatch - into a firey-orange vortex of thunderclouds. It's arguably one of the most horrifying scenes of the game.]]

Note the curious discrepancy; despite rebelling against God, devils in hell are doing some kind of job with awe-inspiring diligence and consistency. This job arguably makes Hell someplace someone doesn't want to go; which theoretically helps God. Some theorize that Hell is thus part of God's plan and still under His employ; or else devils get something out of torturing souls. {{Mana}}, perhaps. Or maybe they're just sadistically amusing themselves. Another popular theory in fiction is that it was originally a prison, but {{Satan}} took it over; subverting its mechanics.

Common features of such a location include underground cavern-like decor, plenty of {{hellfire}} and [[LavaLand lava]], and red-skinned [[HornedHumanoid devils with horns]] and tails poking the souls of sinners around with their pitchforks. Sometimes, it's actually shown to be underground ''literally'', but most of the time it's AnotherDimension.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}} II'', a part of Hell is the River of Flame, which is classical fire and brimstone. Other parts of Hell include great, dark, ashen plains. This in contrast to the first ''Diablo'' which envisioned Hell as [[BloodyBowelsOfHell a land of bones, blood and mutilated corpses]].

* The final mission of ''VideoGame/{{Thief}}: The Dark Project'', "The Maw of Chaos," is set in the Trickster's realm - underground, featuring a lot of lava rivers and monsters.
* In VideoGame/SagaFrontier [[spoiler: when fighting the Final Boss of Blue's Scenario, when Hell's Lord shifts forms, the FluffyCloudHeaven disappears and the true colors of Hell take shape]]
* Averted in ''{{Painkiller}}'', where Purgatory is made up entirely of manmade creations, such as ruined cities, military bases, mines, opera theatres.... and the last level, which takes place in Hell proper, is a montage of the horrors of war, frozen in time. The add on ''Battle Out of Hell'' even has an orphanage.
* ''GuildWars''' Ring of Fire. There's even a section called 'Hell's Precipice'. I doubt even Ol' Horney would argue. It does look like his kind of real estate.
* ''MuramasaTheDemonBlade'' features this exact hell with damned soul wandering through the burning wasteland in the background.
