* One ''ComicBook/ChickTract'' has two demons goofing off so that one guy ends up being converted to Christianity. As punishment, Satan forces them to go down another level of Hell for every time this guy ends up converting someone else. They end up going down several ''thousand'', using the elevator to get there. And the operator is JosefStalin in a {{hazmat suit}}.

Added DiffLines:

* Though it leads to CessationOfExistence rather than Hell, one of the elevators in ''Anime/DeathParade'' serves this purpose.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
