* The ''JonShannow'' book ''Wolf in Shadow'' by Creator/DavidGemmell has the Hellborn. Even though they are humans, they are Satan-worshippers and explicitly model themselves after this trope.

* In the Creator/CliveBarker novella "The Hellbound Heart", the FilmOfTheBook ''Film/{{Hellraiser}}'' and an ExpandedUniverse [[Franchise/{{Hellraiser}} based on the latter]], the Legions of Hell are the Cenobites (a word originally meaning simply monks in monastic orders, as distinct from "eremites" or hermit monks). Hell is not a place for punishment of sins as such: souls are lured there simply by the temptation of solving puzzles.

** Barker would later publish ''Literature/TheScarletGospels'' which expands that the Cenobites as a part of The Order of the Gash are only a small part of multiple factions of Hell. This book relates in description to the incarnation in ''Film/{{Hellraiser}}'' but also limits how much it expands the mythology, leaving room for the possibilities of changes as far who makes up the Legions of Hell between the two books.

** 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.

* ''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]].

*** Sam had Power Creep that season, but it was [[TheDarkSideWillMakeYouForget a bad]] [[ThanatosGambit thing]]. 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.
