* ''ComicBook/BlackMoonChronicles'': Haazheel's [[spoiler:and his father Lucifer's]] plan is to destroy the Empire of Lynn and turn it into a demon-worshipping theocracy so that God will leave the Earth in disgust. Then the true invasion through the {{Hellgate}} can commence, as TheLegionsOfHell destroy all of humanity to turn the Earth into a new Hell.

* Obviously, ''{{Deadlands}}: Hell on Earth''. The demons in question were [[spoiler:the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse]].
* In ''{{Exalted}}'', the [[EldritchAbomination Yozis]] are trying to cause an unusually literal form of this trope. Thanks to their surrender oaths, they're physically incapable of leaving {{Hell}}...so their big plan is to have [[DealWithTheDevil their agents]] corrupt all Creation until it's indistinguishable from {{Hell}}, thus rendering the distinction moot. (Or at least, on paper. The ''real'' plan [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder the mastermind of the above plan]] has is to sneak out alone and shut the door behind him... He'll still do Hell On Earth, of course, but just for his amusement.)

* In ''MagicTheGathering'' we have the Phyrexian invasion. After a certain point, the invasion continued by way of physically overlaying another plane, filled with millions of demonic soldiers, onto Dominaria. Fortunately, Urza had been running ThePlan across thousands of years to prepare but it very nearly wasn't enough. The Phyrexians would later go on to infect the plane of Mirrodin, with much better results if you're a Phyrexian.

* This is the plot of the ''Comicbook/{{Inferno}}'' storyline in Marvel, with all New York-based superheroes wrapped up in the madness (though the main storyline happens in the ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' titles).

* An issue of ''{{JLA}}'' had an interesting variation - a gang of renegade angels (not strictly demons, but they were rebelling against God, so make of that what you will) were planning on destroying humanity by bringing ''heaven'' to earth. If you're wondering how that would work, it's explained that simply seeing things from heaven in all their glory would be enough to kill mortal men instantly.

* ''VideoGame/{{Doom}} II: Hell On Earth'' has this right in the title, and [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the plot involves a demonic takeover of Earth]] and the hero having to get everyone else off the planet and find a way to close the portal the demons are using, kicking ass on every demon in sight along the way.

** Though so far it seems more like ''heaven'' on earth, the place is basically paradise, though Rickert finds there are darker aspects of it hidden away.

Maybe some ancient ritual [[GoneHorriblyWrong went horribly wrong]] (or JustAsPlanned) and opened a {{Hellgate}}, maybe the border between our world and {{Hell}} got torn asunder, or maybe our heroes [[NiceJobBreakingItHero unleashed it themselves by mistake]]. What the demons want mainly depends on [[OurDemonsAreDifferent the type of story and the type of demons involved]]. Whether they want to enslave us, annihilate us, eat us or [[HornyDevils wor]][[SexIsEvil se]], expect [[FromBadToWorse things to get a whole lot worse for anyone who isn't a demon]].

* The entries in the ''SilentHill'' series which involve the Order and its God imply that a successful birth of God would result in Hell on earth. Whether or not this is possible is actually questionable, but the easy assumption is that the result would resemble the [[DarkWorld Otherworld]], so none of the protagonists ever feel inclined to let it happen and find out.

* ''TalesOfMonkeyIsland'': [[spoiler:More like "Hell on the Caribbean" in Chapter 5, since [=LeChuck=] has regained his voodoo powers after [[HeroKiller killing Guybrush]] and has captured Elaine. And since Guybrush isn't around to stop him, the villain not only pillages and plunders the islands in the Gulf of Melange, but he also destroys Spinner Cay, damages Flotsam (where Guybrush has fallen, though his decaying body survives intact in Club 41), slaughters many people and some Vaycaylians (and a few animal species), and sets fire to many islands, creating his own VillainWorld that is right between [[ApocalypseHow Class 0 and Class 1]]. ([[FromBadToWorse It gets a bit worse]] when [[NiceJobBreakingItHero the Crossroads are opened]], and he becomes a [[AGodAmI Demon Pirate God]].) Thankfully, [[NoOntologicalInertia the entire Gulf of Melange starts getting better]] once Guybrush comes BackFromTheDead and destroys him once and for all.]]
