* The horror anthology series ''Nightmare World'' had a story about a death metal fanboy who fit this trope, and sacrificed his artist friend to the Devil in hopes of being given metal fame and fortune like his idol, a Music/MarilynManson Expy. However, the demon that shows up in response to the sacrifice tells him that Hell no longer fulfills wishes that stands to corrupt enough souls, and the market for death metal is way too small to justify the effort. When the fanboy begs and promises to do whatever it takes, the demon grants him his request by transforming him into a star that's guaranteed to reach a massive fanbase; a member of a BoyBand.

The entire series is centered on The AntiChrist, Damien, and a cadre of satanist followers who created the means for his birth, supporting him from the shadows and helping him remove any obstacles to his rise to power (not that he needs a lot of help, especially once he grows out of childhood). Damiens ultimate goal is to prevent the return of Jesus Christ and usher in the End of Days in Hell's favor. [[spoiler: He fails]]

* In ''[[RepairmanJack Conspiracies]]'', one of the conventioneers had been brainwashed into accusing her father of molestation and Satanism, by a shrink her mother hired to ensure she'd get custody in the divorce settlement. Years later, she's plagued by nightmares of terrible encounters with Hollywood Satanism that never happened. [[spoiler: The fact that ''genuine'' evil forces are exacerbating these baseless dreams for their own purposes only makes it worse.]]

* ''SazanEyes'' has Pai captured by a cult of self-proclaimed Satanists in Wales, of all things, looking for a human sacrifice. The Grand Priest downright tells her about their worship of Satan, though not all the members wear hoods, capes and goat masks (only the head priest is in full regalia). However, since Pai is actually an immortal Triclop and her Wu Yakumo soon comes to her rescue, they are harmless villains at most, and not taken very seriously, as they're just {{Muggles}} compared to Pai and Yakumo's usual opponents.

* ''Literature/TheScream'' : Discussed. The book is set during TheEighties, when metal was at its height of popularity. The book centres around two rock bands, one of which uses heavy Satanic imagery. The leader of the other band, Jake, points out that most of the time, Satanic imagery and lyrics in music are just part of the act. Not so with The Scream.

* This is the plot of the ''FightingFantasy'' gamebook ''House Of Hell'', with the protagonist becoming stranded near an old mansion belonging to the Earl Of Drumer (and it's implied that he was deliberatly lured there by being given false directions in the town). While the Earl puts on the image of a gracious host, he's in fact the leader of a local Satanic cult, which includes high-ranking political and social members of the nearby town, and they kidnap wayward travellers and out-of-towners to sacrifice to their dark masters. [[spoiler: However, the Earl is not the Big Bad, it's his butler Franklin, who is in reality a Hell Demon in disguise]]

* Subverted on ''WesternAnimation/MoralOrel''. Coach Stopframe worships Satan believing him to be some powerful being that can help him win over Clay's heart and help the school's team. When he joins actual satanists, they turn out to a bunch of sloppy hedonists, [[WouldntHurtAChild and are utterly horrified that Stopframe]] brought Orel to be a VirginSacrifice (they said to bring a virgin, they meant an ''adult'' virgin to join their orgy) and don't bother Orel at all (in fact, he gets along rather well with them). Coach Stopframe ''does'' wind up disgusted with them, but it's more because they're uncouth and unattractive than any religious reason.

You know you're looking at Hollywood Satanism when you see Satanism portrayed as a ReligionOfEvil with bizarre, often [[{{squick}} disgusting]] rituals parodying Christian services and a particular fondness for [[HumanSacrifice human sacrifice]] and/or sex orgies. Common hobbies of the Hollywood Satanist include [[BadPeopleAbuseAnimals sacrificing your cat]], slipping [[SubliminalSeduction backmasked messages]] into popular music to corrupt the youth, and engaging in carefully-calculated [[TakeOverTheWorld world-domination schemes]] that have been in the works since the [[AncientConspiracy beginning of time]] (which usually involve breeding {{The Antichrist}} - extra points if he's [[{{Ghostapo}} Aryan]]!).
