Other times, the Hellgate itself is the driving force of the plot (or maybe just a MacGuffin): the protagonists seek to close the gate, or to prevent it from being opened in the first place, or even to destroy it. This type of Hellgate tends to be more dangerous, and may even cause TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt if left unchecked.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centralia,_Pennsylvania Centralia, Pennsylvania]] is directly underneath an inextinguishable coal fire that has been burning for over 50 years with enough coal to keep burning for centuries into the future. As the ruins of the city crumble, the ground gives way to the smoke and fires right below. As David [=DeKok=] wrote for the University of Pennsylvania:
--> "This was a world where no human could live, hotter than the planet Mercury, its atmosphere as poisonous as Saturn's. At the heart of the fire, temperatures easily exceeded 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Lethal clouds of carbon monoxide and other gases swirled through the rock chambers."

** The Eye of Terror is the largest (though there are others, such as the Maelstrom) [[HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace Warp]]-realspace overlay. It's a NegativeSpaceWedgie through which TheLegionsOfHell periodically attempt to destroy the galaxy, and at several thousand light-years wide, it might be the largest Hellgate in fiction.
** Chaos-worshipers' plots generally revolve around creating localized ones (say, about the size of a solar system).

*** During the Age of Chaos many [[PortalDoor Realmgates]] became corrupted and cursed by the Dark Gods and now lead to the nightmarish Realm of Chaos, abode of daemons and the Chaos Gods.
*** [[FeatheredFiend Lords of Change]] are capable of casting the Infernal Gateway spell. This spells sees the Greater Daemon open a portal to the Realm of Chaos itself, pulling in nearby enemy warriors to have their bodies and souls ripped apart by ravenous Daemons.

* In ''[[VideoGame/RealmGrinder Realm Grinder]]'', The Hell Portal is the most expensive building available to Evil, opening where a cave entrance would normally be. The Demon faction uses an enhanced version, affected by their Hellfire. They eventually declare an invasion and transform it into an Infernal Realm, opening the possibility of shorter but stronger Hellfire Blasts.

* Both ''TabletopGame/{{Malifaux}}'' and ''HellDorado'' subvert this; it's humanity invading Malifaux/hell, instead of the other way around. Particularly glaring in {{Malifaux}} where the first time the breach was opened the Neverborn wiped the tresspassers, and closed the portal while throwing one body trough it before it fully closed. The body had one word written on it: Ours.
