Small edit to the concept of chaos mutations and their implication for the wielder.
** Chaos comes in three main flavors. You have your standard daemons, entities formed from the aforementioned thoughts and emotions of mortals who are usually aligned with one of the main four [[GodOfEvil Chaos]] [[EldritchAbomination Gods]]. You have legions of power armor-wearing SuperSoldiers, sometimes bearing some nasty mutations and [[DealWithTheDevil "gifts"]] from the gods, each led by an immortal [[PhysicalGod Daemon Prince]]. Finally you have [[TheCorruption the more subtle angle]]; cults disguised as innocuous organizations, daemonic possession of unidentified psykers, and the manipulation of GenreBlind individuals. HilarityEnsues.

Like A Badass Out Of Hell is being split into new tropes.
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' had the legions of hell bust loose at the end of season two. They fight them for the rest of the series, on and off, though not as much after defeating Satan at the end of Season Five, and less still in Seven, largely because they were so [[TheWorfEffect nerfed]] . OffscreenMomentOfAwesome when the angels (with Castiel apparently taking point, or at least the last survivor of those who took point) laid siege to Hell and cut their way in to rescue Dean, allowing him to make LikeABadassOutOfHell without giving in to [[PowerCreepPowerSeep Power Creep]] much. (Dean actually took a hit to his power after Hell due to [=PTSD=], though in the BadFuture he was using his education there for JackBauerInterrogationTechnique.)

* TheLegionsOfHell show up as the {{Mooks}} of the fourth season of ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', with their boss [[{{Satan}} Trigon]] as BigBad and [[LikeABadassOutOfHell Slade]] as TheDragon. They try to bring about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt and come within a hairsbreadth of succeeding. [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids And yes, this is from a kids show that's normally a lighthearted action-comedy]].

Cas had it in season six. It was [[AGodAmI a bad thing]] again. Supernatural is strict about these matters. *** There ''is'' subtle creep, in that in early seasons they could barely handle a single demon, while late in six Dean takes a whole series prisoner in the attempt to torture info out of them. The last one flattens him once it gets out due to overconfident carelessness, though, so it's really all a matter of refinement of technique due to practice.

* Downplayed in ''TheSalvationWar'', where [[spoiler:the demons are apparently genetic offshoots from human ancestors -- and are completely mortal. Superhuman strength, speed (on foot at least), some with wings, and not a few with powers, but all killable (AND HOW!). They only managed to successfully invade mostly empty desert before being pushed back into Hell and then being invaded by HUMANS. Heck, a human kills Asmodeus with multiple sniper rifle bullets to the head, and there's nothing showing that ''Satan'' isn't mortal too. In fact, he really only survives a recent attempt by the humans to assassinate him by bombing his palace by sheer luck; he just happened to be out of the city at the time. The angels appear to be slightly tougher, and much faster, but by no means immortal themselves.]]

* The Bydo in ''VideoGame/{{R-Type}}'' are arguably this, even though they were created ''by'' humanity. Thing is, they were locked into ''a pocket dimension'' (read: the future Hell) after they proved to have GoneHorriblyRight, and they were able to use it as a staging ground to attack humanity several centuries into the past. Now consider that there isn't all that much reason--at least, nothing mentioned in-game--to believe they would have restricted themselves to just the ''recent'' past...

* TheLegionsOfHell feature prominently in the ''RiftwarCycle'', particularly the ''Serpentwar'' and ''Demonwar'' subseries. Essentially, this setting has reality in metaphysical layers, with each layer being more dangerous than the one above it- any layers below yours can be considered hell (and yes, this means that the mortal world is considered part of hell by angels, who come from the upper levels). Demons come from the fourth and fifth layers of reality below the mortal world, and have repeatedly tried to conquer it in order to feed on the life force of its inhabitants. There's also the Dasati, from the layer immediately below ours, who aren't ''demons'' per se but as an AlwaysChaoticEvil ProudWarriorRace they're still plenty nasty and their reality ''is'' the first level of hell from a human perspective. On the levels ''below'' TheLegionsOfHell you start getting ''really'' [[EldritchAbomination bad things]].

Added DiffLines:
* The Dark Spirits of Book 2 in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' are portrayed as such, with BigBad Vaatu as their master and Unalaq as TheDragon. Like in ''Teen Titans'' they also help their master bring about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt and bring humans under Dark Spirit rule.

* Ghosts, demons and dark gods in ''TheRealGhostbusters'' (and ''WesternAnimation/ExtremeGhostbusters'') come from various places, sometimes other dimensions. The Ghostbusters [[SealedEvilInACan capture them and put them into their "Containment Unit."]] Over the years, the Containment Unit's inner environment has become a type of Hell due to its growing number of inhabitants. Having to journey into the Containment Unit and battle old foes now teamed together, or the threat of the Containment Unit being broken open and bringing about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, are common plots.
