* On the ''RockosModernLife'' episode "Carnival Knowledge," the Hellevator (called "Elevator to Hell" [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar with no use of weak euphemisms like "heck" and "Hades" or a scenery censor to cover up the last word]]) was shown as an amusement park ride that Rocko and Heffer try to get on, but are turned away when the carny tells Heffer he's too heavy for the ride.

* The title card for WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's review of ''Devil'' has elevator doors closing on terrified Critic with hell behind him. Scarier than anything in the movie.

* In ''Hell'' by Yasutaka Tsutsui (author of {{Paprika}}) there is a subplot about a writer and an actress sharing the ride in the elevator that goes down to 666th floor below. It makes sense, because novel utilizes MundaneAfterlife trope and [[spoiler:some characters arrive in Hell by means of transport they were using at the moment of death, for example a plane that crashed in real life. Also, you may argue, the elevator IS, in fact, the personal Hell of this pair]]

* The [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST'd]] horror(?) movie ''Soultaker'' features one of these, although in this case the Hellevator actually goes ''up'' to get to the afterlife, which is apparently on the top floor of a hospital for easy access to dying people. Apparently Joe Estevez doesn't like to walk around too much.

* Used in ''{{Reaper}}'', when the Devil takes Sam to the 75th floor of his corporation. An elevator door (complete with a hellish design and symbols) opens up to a very nicely done CGI wall of flame.

* Implied in the last episode of Series/AshesToAshes, when [[spoiler: Jim Keats persuades Ray, Chris and Shaz to be transferred to his department, reachable by elevator. It's implied that Keats is the devil and his "department" is hell. The main characters are in some sort of "purgatory" for dead cops.]]
* Mentioned in a roundabout way in an episode of [[Series/TheXFiles The X-Files]] during a conversation between Skinner and the Smoking Man.

* An episode of ''YamiShibai'' has a stressed out father taking a mall elevator to get away from his family for a while. Said elevator takes him to [[FourIsDeath B 4]] instead of B3 like he asked, a floor that isnt supposed to be in the building. The floor opens up into a dark, unlit section of the mall, and the remaining passengers silently shuffle out into the darkness, leaving him behind. The elevator attendant next takes him to [[ThirteenIsUnlucky B 13]], which opens up into a creepy, red-lit area where a bloodied humanoid figure suddenly rushes towards the elevator, though the door closes before the audience can see clearly exactly what it was. Now terrified, the father demands to be returned to his original floor, only for the attendant to be revealed to be a mannequin, despite moving and talking earlier. He's finally returned to the original floor... only to notice that there is suddenly nobody around, as the mall's PA system announces that opening hours are over, and the lights go out...

* During the ''Inferno'' crossover arc in {{Marvel}}, where the layer between reality and the supernatural is breached, a group of people are trapped in an elevator that turns into one of these. The viewer isnt shown what happens inside, but EmmaFrost has a telepathic vision, and is severly traumatized.

* Parodied in the "first mock-fic" of ''TransformersArmada'' on [[http://www.transformersfanfic.com/ the TF Lexicon]]. In it, a [[AuthorAvatar guy in real life]] enters an elevator and presses "ALL THE BUTTONS AT ONCE" (echo, echo)! This transports him to the world of Armada, which becomes Hell enough for him.
