* In the ''Literature/SecretHistories'' series, an [[TheFairFolk Elf]] strike force tries to create one when the battle goes against them. They use the living body of one of their mages to do so. Fortunately they're stopped when all they have is a vaguely magical arch of viscera.

[[spoiler:After Wismerhill discovers the plan was not simple to dismantle the empire but to create HellOnEarth all along, he marshalls his forces for an epic battle to banish Lucifer and his demons back to Hell and close the portal for good.]]

* Dante Aligheri's ''DivineComedy'' subverts this trope; it's a hellgate, but it's literally the gate to Hell; just an opening with an ominous poem scrawled into it.

* In the ManlyWadeWellman short story 'Chorazin' a man finds a gate to Hell [[EldritchLocation or someplace equally nasty]] in the side of a mountain. It's filled with piles of gold and precious jewels [[EldritchAbomination and some very unpleasant inhabitants]]. Wellman must have liked the idea, as he also used it in a Literature/SilverJohn story, though that one ended with John [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu defeating its master,]] [[DemonLordsAndArchdevils the demon Molech]].

** Subverted in the ''Shivering Isles'' expansion, where a gate opens to said location but nothing comes out of it, save for one complete loony (like all the rest in there) that gets killed by a guard anyway. The gate's purpose instead is to attract an adventurer capable of assisting the Daedric Prince Sheogorath defend his realm. [[spoiler: Or rather, to attract an adventurer capable of ''replacing'' him so that his original self Jyggalag can escape the Shivering Isles.]]

A Hellgate is a connection -- doorway, [[TeleportersAndTransporters portal]], [[AnotherDimension interdimensional weak spot]], [[OurWormholesAreDifferent Wormhole]], NegativeSpaceWedgie, whatever -- between the normal world and someplace ''bad''. Whether it explicitly links to [[FireAndBrimstoneHell Hell]], [[HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace Hyperspace]] or just to AnotherDimension, the primary plot function of the Hellgate to allow [[TheLegionsOfHell legions of]] [[DemonicInvaders scary, evil]] weirdness to [[AlienInvasion invade]] [[HellOnEarth our world]].

* Gata from [[ComicBook/AdventureTime the ''Adventure Time'' comic series]] has one of these in her mouth when she sleeps. In order to stop the monsters from coming through her mouth, Finn and Jake's father had to use some [[RetGone RetGone-ing goop to wipe her from existence.]] Years passed, and Finn and Jake accidentally bring her back. They then travel into the mouth of their forgotten childhood friend (possibly adoptive sister) in order to stop the monsters at the source.
