*** COROT-7b. It's so hot that most of its daytime surface is covered by lava, it rains *rocks*, and most of its atmosphere consists of molten rock, and the nighttime side? 50 degrees K and covered in ice.

* Creator/BrianLumley's ''Literature/{{Necroscope}}'' series, after the third book shows that vampires come from a hellish planet connected to Earth by a "gray hole". Albeit for the natives of that planet Earth is hell.

* ''Spear Of Destiny'', the MissionPackSequel to ''VideoGame/Wolfenstein3D'', has its last level take place in Hell and feels somewhat like a forerunner to VideoGame/{{DOOM}}. Given how id Software decided to use it as inspiration for their new IP after an attempt to do an ''Film/{{Aliens}}''-based FPS fell through, it sort of ''is'' one.

* StephenKing's novel ''Literature/{{Revival}}'' shows that every single human being goes to the same place after death: a hellish planet ruled by ant-like monsters that enslave the human souls and worship a horrible spider-like EldritchAbomination.

** Mercury or Venus cannot hold a candle to the presumed properties of some extrasolar planets orbiting close to their stars. Take your pick: LethalLavaLand-scale temperatures in the dayside (''always'' dayside because of tidal locking), or almost absolute zero temperatures in the night side (''always'' night side), probably with volcanism galore there too. And all of this without including surface gravity twice or more that of Earth and/or a dense atmosphere that may give the entire planet the same hellish conditions ''plus'' crushing atmospheric pressures that make Venusian ones a joke.

For example, HD189733b is a gas giant with an orbital period of just 2.2 days, i.e. a "hot Jupiter", 5400 mph winds, and rain of molten glass.

The [[{{Hell}} infernal realm]] is often by definition unconquerable and inescapable. This doesn't sit well with videogame designers, who abhor not being able to shoot up things that look like hey need shooting up. Consequently gamers are occasionally treated to [[ToHellAndBack going to Hell, killing everything, and coming back out.]] This is possibly the ultimate logical conclusion to the RuleOfCool, or the SortingAlgorithmOfEvil going off the scale.

* MarvelComics has Mephisto's Realm. It is not another planet so much as it is another dimension that looks like a FireAndBrimstoneHell complete with a Satan {{Expy}} who is really just a mystical being that happens to be named [[{{Faust}} Mephisto]]. For all intents and purposes, it's {{Hell}} but without the religious implications and inescapabaility, allowing the heroes the ability to punch their way out.
* DC Comics: [[ComicBook/NewGods Apokolips]], an infernal planet which is filled with burning fire pits. Pain, death, and hopelessness are the norm there. Its inhabitants are AlwaysChaoticEvil New Gods who are the embodiment of evil, most notably its ruler Darkseid.

* In ''Series/StargateSG1'', the Goa'uld System Lord Sokar was considered particularly vile even by the AlwaysChaoticEvil Goa'uld standards, and over the millenia he shifted his persona from matching the Sokar of Myth/EgyptianMythology into one based on {{Satan}}. As part of this, he transformed Netu, the moon of his capital world Delmak, into a literal HellholePrison.
