** Exactly what SpaceWolves Primarch Leman Russ was hoping to find when he left Fenris is anyone's guess, but remember the Wolves are space vikings, and the Warp ''is'' Hell, for all intents and purposes.

A Hell Seeker is a character who actively trying to get into Hell. Literally Hell, as in [[{{Hell}} the afterlife of endless torment]]. Maybe he thinks that he will like it there, being allowed to "reign in hell" rather than becoming one of the tormented souls, perhaps thinking that he might even [[DemonOfHumanOrigin become one of the demons]]. (Such a character is usually [[OriginalPositionFallacy eventually proven wrong, ending up at the bottom of the hellish food-chain]].) Maybe he's a hardcore masochist who thinks that an eternity of torture and violation [[TooKinkyToTorture sounds great]]. Maybe he's concerned he'll otherwise [[TheNothingAfterDeath wind up nowhere at all]], or [[CessationOfExistence vanish entirely]]. Or maybe he's just trying to punish himself. Or maybe he lives in a setting where Hell is [[AHellOfATime something much cooler]] than the horrors believed in by certain RealLife religions. It might also be that someone he loves has been damned and [[YouAreWorthHell he prefers to spend eternity with them]] or is [[ToHellAndBack trying to rescue them]].

* There is an old gamer joke about a hardcore ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' player who finds a GenieInABottle and is granted three wishes: IDDQD, IDKFA, and a one way trip to Hell.[[note]]IDDQD and IDKFA are the GodMode and max ammo [[ClassicCheatCode cheatcodes]][[/note]]
** In some variants of the joke, it's a DealWithTheDevil, and the GenreSavvy devil sends him to Nightmare.[[note]]Maximum difficulty level. Monsters are more aggressive and respawn after they die. [[OhCrap And cheat codes are disabled.]][[/note]]

Contrast HeavenSeeker. Also contrast ToHellAndBack and DealWithTheDevil. The former is for characters who want to go to hell but want to get out afterwards, while the latter is when the character accepts hell after death in return for getting good things in life - but does NOT have ending up in hell as a goal in itself, and is likely to try to escape from the deal. This in turn can be contrasted with ImGoingToHellForThis. See also DystopiaJustifiesTheMeans, when they decide to just settle for recreating Hell.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/BramStokersDracula'': The VillainOpeningScene explains the titular vampire's StartOfDarkness -- he's a [[UsefulNotes/TheCrusades Crusade]]-leader whose surviving enemies invoke RevengeByProxy by tricking his wife into being DrivenToSuicide (which, according to the main priest in said scene, means auto-damnation for her and no TogetherInDeath for Dracula). This makes him snap, invoke FaithHeelTurn, literally choose YouAreWorthHell for her sake, and perform some bizarre Satanic ritual to become... well, Dracula.

Since the landowner is convinced he'll go to hell without the blessing of the church, Edmund resorts to convincing him that hell is ''[[AHellOfATime awesome]]''.
