* 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.

* The Demon Inferno and the Flaming Inferno levels from ''CatacombAbyss'' and ''CatacombArmageddon'' respectively are pretty much ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.

* Justified in James Branch Cabell's ''Jurgen'' in that the Hell the protagonist visits is based on his father's opinion of what Hell should be like.

* [[UnbuiltTrope In spite of everything]], Dante Alighieri's ''[[DivineComedy 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 and just one of the seven regions in his Purgatory. 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.

* Creator/PiersAnthony's ''IncarnationsOfImmortality'' series has a Hell that is like this in many places. It's revealed through later books that Hell has many regions, including a "mock Heaven" for souls that have been [[CelestialBureaucracy incorrectly sent to Hell and can't now be returned to Heaven]].[[note]]Heaven is actually pretty dull and Mock Heaven is ''much'' more fun, because the current Satan is, all things considered, a pretty nice guy once you get to know him, though he works fairly hard to keep people from finding that out.[[/note]]

* In ''TheGuardians'', Hell is a huge realm with many areas. The traditional fire and brimstone area is The Pit, where the souls of damned humans and disobedient demons are tortured.

* 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 the fourth movie (which has Ichigo ''breaking into it'')]].

Added DiffLines:

** The brimstone is also specifically there in some parts, as Nightcrawler travels through that dimension when he teleports, bringing back smoke retaining the smell.
