* Apophis Consortium's ''Obsidian: Age of Judgement'', has the forces of hell take over the world for centuries, reducing humans in North America to living in scattered communities or the sole fortified HiveCity while Europe has been completely subjugated. It's so bad, that humans don't know that there are places outside of their respective continents and while bionics and gun technology have improved to new heights, flight has become a lost technology.
* Red Spire Press's D20 game ''Dark Legacies'' has a far future Earth suffer both a dimensional migration of low-tech races and then an invasion by demons. If it weren't for a rising religious order with holy magic and alliances with some of these new races, the demons would have completely wiped out humanity. As it is, despite being thousands of years in the future, humans have been reduced to steam tech and crossbows as the height of technology.

Added DiffLines:

* ''{{ComicBook/Hellboy}}'' has the Legions awaiting for Hellboy to lead them to destroy the world. Unfortunately for them, Hellboy was RaisedByHumans and (repeatedly) tells them to piss off.
* Averted in ''{{ComicBook/Preacher}}'', where Hell appears in only one arc, and even then we only see a few devils complain of the cold (a man who felt such hatred that it froze Hell over, and ended up shooting the Devil over an insult). Heaven's armies get a lot more screentime, [[CurbstompBattle if equally dangerous.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/GoodOmens'': when they arrive for Armageddon, it's noted that the commanders of the Heavenly hosts and the LegionsOfHell look remarkably similar, all part of the book's theme that neither side is all that different from the other.

* The ''DresdenFiles'' delivers in its usual fantasy-kitchen-sink fashion. Demons, Fallen Angels, the Devil, and all other shades of Hell exist, alongside all of Heaven, and the Nevernever, with the Fae, whos BlueAndOrangeMorality isn't evil per se but is often fairly destructive.

* A important chunck of backstory for all OgreBattle games was once that the Underworld's armies of Demons, Ogres and other such nasties invaded Earth, who were aided by Heaven's armies in the titular "Ogre Battle". The Underworld lost, but parts of the legions can still be summoned by humans. They are often very important plot point, like in OgreBattleMarchOfTheBlackQueen, where [[BigBad Rashidi]] contacts a General of said Legion, [[DemonLordsAndArchdevils Galf]] or in Videogame/OgreBattle64 is a bunch of Ogres being summoned by [[spoiler: The Holy Lodis Empire]]. However, in battle, you can persuade some of them to join you!

* 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.

* The Demon Empire in ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'' is this trope turned into a political state, complete with extremely advanced technology and slavery. And [[CrapsackWorld it's saying something about the 'verse]] that [[BlackAndGrayMorality they're not the most evil faction in the setting]].
