* An [[InvertedTrope Inversion]], sort of, in ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime2Echoes''. The [[LegionsOfHell Ing]] themselves don't use the portals to [[DarkWorld Dark Aether]], as they can't survive on Aether in their normal forms; they appear as mist that [[DemonicPossession possesses]] creatures instead. Some of the portals appeared spontaneously, and some were created by the Luminoth so that they (and eventually Samus) could return the favor.

However an optional combination weapon known as a "Dark Burst" basically creates a portal to somewhere even worse than Dark Aether. A mobile portal that attempts to draw in everything that comes close to it!



* ''Videogame/Metroid:Prime2Echoes'' sees Samus frequently open portals to Dark Aether, a planet where the very atmosphere is so corrosive it rapidly eats away at her energy shielding and is instantly fatal to most organisms. The dominant species of Dark Aether seek to kill, [[DemonicPossession possess]], enslave or devour anything that is not themselves and ridiculously resilient to anything beside "The Light of Aether"(energy that makes the planet "dimensionally unstable" and eventually split into [[DualWorldGameplay "Light" and "Dark" halves]]) or phazon(a mutagen with life like properties whose collision with the planet would have shattered it, if not for it's dimensional instability). But the real hell gate is "The Dark Burst", an optional combination weapon that basically be described as concentrating Dark Aether's atmosphere and adding explosives to it to create a portal to somewhere even worse. A mobile portal that attempts to draw in everything that comes close to it!

* ''TheTroop'' has Dimensional Mites, small creatures who resemble balls of light. Different from most other Hell Gates, in that they are actually '''LIVING''' Creatures who form together to make a portal to and from the Monster Dimension. The Troop keeps some of them in small capsules, which can be opened to make a portal anytime, and anywhere they please. The capsules are used to make a portal and send the monsters back to the Monster Dimension (though they can also be used to bring monsters over, as seen in episode 14)
* ''[[Series.TheCollector The Collector]]'': Temporary portals to Hell appear to collect the Devil's [[DealWithTheDevil debts]]. [[InvisibleToNormals Only his clients can see or hear them.]]

* In ''Franchise/WonderWoman'' comics, Themyscira has a door to the underworld. It's one of the Amazons' chores to guard it. Their rate of success has had its ups and downs.

* In ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''/''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' crossover ''Fanfic/TheVampireOfSteel'', Buffy travels to Chicago to stop a vampire mob from opening a Hellmouth right above the city. Later on, Kara and Buffy team up to prevent a Kryptonian vampire from cracking Sunnydale's Hellmouth open.
-->Thereís never been anything like this before. Some of the frigginí California vamps tell me about something called a Hellmouth. Thisíll make their Hellmouth look like a dentistís nightmare.

* The cosmic battleground of [[ShiningCity Laurentia]] in ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' is dotted with these in appropriate places, ranging from the absolutely fitting (A site of a tragic plane crash, a festering sewer) to the merely creepy (a display of grinning breakfast cereal mascots) to the downright horrifying (the door of a ''fast-food men's bathroom'').

* The main setting of ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' has a few permanent portals to the lower planes, but by far the most famous is the Worldwound, a hole to the depths of the Abyss the size of a city. The demon lord Deskari tore it open after the death of his divine rival with the intent to use it as the route for his armies to conquer Golarion. His efforts have yet to be successful, but the constant crusades to hold back his hordes are a major part of the political and cultural landscape.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'': The Season 2 special "The Smurfs Christmas Special" has an evil lord attempt to use one to allow him to take two children he kidnapped (along with Gargamel and Azrael) on "The Final Journey," presumably another dimension, where he planned to do who knows what to his captives (and force Gargamel to watch) before killing them all. He first builds a wall of fire before beginning to summon more of his powers to open the Hellgate ... but is eventually stopped.

* As mentioned above, New York actually has a Hell Gate. It isn't Newark, however, and it's not harmful or scary at all. It's a just a branch of the East River between Astoria in Queens and Randall's and Wards Islands, and takes its name from the Dutch phrase ''Hellegat'', a common toponym for "bright strait" or "clear opening", later anglicized into "Hell Gate", which stuck due to its hazards of large rocks and unpredictable currents. It has an eponymous bridge going over it, which also isn't scary, just frustrating due to heavy traffic.

So the name means nothing because isn't even mildly scary at all. Still, a bridge going over a literal portal to hell would be quite interesting.
