Bad idea
* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'': {{Inverted}}. The Outer Gates were constructed not to let [[EldritchAbomination Outsiders]] in, or even to keep them out. Instead, they prevent them from getting in ''unnoticed'', so that they can be turned back.

* The Portal building in ''VideoGame/CookieClicker'' is stated to be a portal to the Cookieverse but is implied to be one of these. It costs [[NumberOfTheBeast 1,666,666 cookies to build the first one, and produces 6666 [=CpS=]]]. When the [[spoiler:grandmapocalypse]] reaches its late stages, your Portals power up [[spoiler:Grandmas]].

* In the ''{{VideoGame/Bayonetta}}'' franchise, Umbran Witches can use their hair as a conduit to open temporary gates to Inferno, this game's version of Hell, in order to summon Infernal Demons to do their bidding. In the sequel, it's revealed that the Umbran Witch counterparts, the Lumen Sages, can do something similar by opening up a temporary gate to Paradiso in order to summon Angels. Although LightIsNotGood is in full effect here, so despite Paradiso being eponymous to Heaven its implied to be just as bad as Inferno. ** Also in the sequel, ''{{VideoGame/Bayonetta 2}}'', the titular character needs to travel to the holy mountain, Fimbulventr, in order to access a permanent passageway to Inferno, fittingly called (through translation) the 'Gates of Hell'. The mountain houses a permanent gateway to Paradiso as well, a Heaven's Gate.

* Referenced in the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "It's About Time", when [[HellHound Cerberus]] ends up in Ponyville after wandering away from his post guarding the entrance to Tartarus. Amusingly, Twilight Sparkle's trip to return Cerberus to Tartarus only takes a single day--and is so uneventful that it happens entirely off-screen. However, this [[CerebusRetcon becomes a plot point later]] when it's revealed that during this time [[SatanicArchetype Lord Tirek]] escaped from [[SealedEvilInACan his prison in Tartarus]] during this time.

* ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiII'' has the idiotic MadScientist Mekata trying to create one of these to gain a limitless source of demonic servants. He screws the process by not using the correct items [[EvilIsNotAToy and is swiftly killed for his trouble]]. Later, TheHero repeats the procedure with the proper corrections and successfully establishes a link between Earth and the higher dimensions.

* ''TheSalvationWar'' does this literally, with portals crossing dimensions are the only way for anyone to move between Heaven, Earth, or Hell. This means that the only way for either side in the massive three way war to attack any of the others is through the portal, but a portal big enough to move an army through is impossible to close. This really fucks the daemons over when [[spoiler:the humans capture the Hellgate in Iraq]]. Smaller portals are commonly used for rescues or surgical strikes. * At [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]] in the WhateleyUniverse, there's a hellgate in the school sewers. Some genius thought it would be a great place to dump all the school sewage into. Stuff ''leaks'' in around the edges of the seal. Bad stuff. Also, the Whateley Academy sits right next to [[LovecraftCountry Arkham, Massachusetts]], right by the Arkham Research Coalition, where they dump the people and ''things'' that are too hard to kill, but too dangerous to leave alive. ARC rests ''right above the pillars of N'Kai''. This is a little like putting a dangerous nuclear reactor safely next to the ''sun''.

* 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'').
