** Mercury or Venus cannot hold a candle to the presumed properties of some extrasolar planets. 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) 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.

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 they 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.

*StephenKing's novel ''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.

* [[BrutalBonusLevel The Temple of the Elder Gods]] from ''VideoGame/AVeryLongRopeToTheTopOfTheSky'' is a two-for-one deal. It's split into two sub-dungeons, one of which is a BonusLevelOfHeaven and one of which is PlanetHeck. (It's a dreary {{Underworld}} place rather than the Christian {{Hell}}, however.)

* ''Spear Of Destiny'', the MissionPackSequel to ''VideoGame/Wolfenstein3D'', has it's last level take place in Hell and feels somewhat like a forerunner to VideoGame/{{DOOM}}, which it sort of is.

** Naturally, players were already planning to [[spoiler:''invade Hell'']] almost as soon as they knew it was there. Sure, Toady [[LordBritishPostulate knew it was coming]] and tried to make it as hard as possible with [[spoiler: almost as many demons as your memory can handle]], but it's still happened; at least one fortress managed to [[spoiler:not only colonize it, but use the ominous glowing pits as garbage dumps and grow mushrooms down there.]]

** Io is both a moon of heck and a real world LethalLavaLand. It's a planet sized erupting volcano as it consistently erupts lava over it self due to the gravity of the Jupiter and the other moons squeezing it's interior.

** Some Orthodox Christian views of Hell describe it as a place of eternal darkness, where even the fires meant to burn forever are hotter than the hottest furnace, but dark, invisible, and the place is so barren that eternal hunger and thirst await the unfortunate soul. This fits rather well to the surface of a neutron star.

** Venus has been compared to Hell. Given that it's hot enough to melt lead, the atmosphere is crushing and unbreathable, and it rains ''battery acid'', this is expected. CarlSagan even said that it's probably the closest thing our galaxy has to hell.

* In ''TOCA Touring Car Championship'', a realistic racing game for the Playstation, the bonus track is Hell. It is not as awesome as it sounds; scarcely more exciting than the rest of the game, in fact.

* One of the secret wrestling rings from the [[UsefulNotes/PlayStation PS1]] video game ''Wrestling{{WCW}} Thunder'' is titled Hades and is pretty much the standard depiction of Hell with fire, brimstone, and blood.
