* In ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'', the term is used to describe any pit, shaft, or tunnel of any kind that leads ''directly'' from the surface (or very close to the surface) straight down to the very lowest level of the game world; Hell itself. No map is really complete without one. Digging several of them is also the easiest way to stop the spread of Hallow/Corruption after hardmode is activated.

* There's something of a metaphorical example in ''MissionHill'' where Andy has been loafing on unemployment and visits friend Jim at work, who turns out to have a good prestige job. As Andy rides down the elevator he's listening to professionals younger than him discussing their comfortable lives, and ends up at a gloomy sub-basement with a scuzzy maintenance man who looks like an older version of himself.

* The elevator into the Undercity in ''WorldOfWarcraft'' is sometimes referred to as this, both due to the Undercity's tomb-like nature and the elevator's tendency to accidentally send players falling to their deaths.

* In The beginning of ''CryOfFear'', the pedophile rendered the apartments elevator unusable for everyone without an access code. The children had to bear it and take the stairs, where he would wait and pull them into his apartment. When Simon finally finds the code and take the elevator, it goes down. Deep in the earth it stops, forcing Simon to take the stairs even deeper.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short "Satan's Waitin", it was not an elevator that took Sylvester to Hades, but an escalator which seemed to go in an endless downward helix.

In a movie adaptation of the episode, Yosemite Sam is already in hell and tries to take an elevator that would bring him back to the land of the living, but instead finds out that it takes him further down into hell.
