* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centralia,_Pennsylvania Centralia, Pennsylvania]] is directly underneath an inextinguishable coal fire that has been burning for over 50 years with enough coal to keep burning for centuries into the future. As the ruins of the city crumble, the ground gives way to the smoke and fires right below. As David [=DeKok=] wrote for the University of Pennsylvania:
--> "This was a world where no human could live, hotter than the planet Mercury, its atmosphere as poisonous as Saturn's. At the heart of the fire, temperatures easily exceeded 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Lethal clouds of carbon monoxide and other gases swirled through the rock chambers."

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'':
** The Eye of Terror is the largest (though there are others, such as the Maelstrom) [[HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace Warp]]-realspace overlay. It's a NegativeSpaceWedgie through which TheLegionsOfHell periodically attempt to destroy the galaxy, and at several thousand light-years wide, it might be the largest Hellgate in fiction.
** Chaos-worshipers' plots generally revolve around creating localized ones (say, about the size of a solar system).
* ''[[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}} Warhammer Fantasy]]'' has the collapsed Warp Gates at the poles, through which Chaos enters the world.

** ''TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar'':
*** During the Age of Chaos many [[PortalDoor Realmgates]] became corrupted and cursed by the Dark Gods and now lead to the nightmarish Realm of Chaos, abode of daemons and the Chaos Gods.
*** [[FeatheredFiend Lords of Change]] are capable of casting the Infernal Gateway spell. This spells sees the Greater Daemon open a portal to the Realm of Chaos itself, pulling in nearby enemy warriors to have their bodies and souls ripped apart by ravenous Daemons.

* In ''[[VideoGame/RealmGrinder Realm Grinder]]'', The Hell Portal is the most expensive building available to Evil, opening where a cave entrance would normally be. The Demon faction uses an enhanced version, affected by their Hellfire. They eventually declare an invasion and transform it into an Infernal Realm, opening the possibility of shorter but stronger Hellfire Blasts.

* Both ''TabletopGame/{{Malifaux}}'' and ''HellDorado'' subvert this; it's humanity invading Malifaux/hell, instead of the other way around. Particularly glaring in {{Malifaux}} where the first time the breach was opened the Neverborn wiped the tresspassers, and closed the portal while throwing one body trough it before it fully closed. The body had one word written on it: Ours.

* 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.

* ''ComicBook/BlackMoonChronicles'': It's opened by Haazheel Thorn on the Prince of Darkness's orders so TheLegionsOfHell can assist the [[ReligionOfEvil Black Moon]] in destroying the empire before laying waste to the rest of the world. [[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.]]

* 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]].
