* The Malebranche in ''Literature/DisAcedia'' started out as this, although attrition and shortages eventually forced them to expand and recruit mortals among them.

** The actual [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Legion of the Damned]] are the ghosts of dead space marines, that show up on the battlefield to aid fellow Marines when the need is great. They sport armor emblazoned with flames and scorched bones, and they are described as being like smoky shadows in appearance, flickering like a flame in the wind as they plod across the battlefield.

* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' 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.

* Shows up from time to time in TheDCU. ''Comicbook/TeenTitans'' has had to deal with Trigon, Superman has traded blows with Karkull, and even ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries Batman]]'' has fought both alongside and against ComicBook/{{Etrigan}} the Rhyming Demon. ''Comicbook/TheSandman'' makes quite a few visits there as well.

* The demons of ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' are quite powerful, diverse and horrific. Every one of them were once humans who got hold of a [[ArtifactOfDoom Behelit]] and sold their souls and sacrificed those closest to them to the demonic gods of the Godhand in exchange for being reborn as demons. The Godhand themselves are servants of [[spoiler: [[GodIsEvil the Idea of Evil]], a quite evil God that governs the Berserk universe and manipulates events so that behelits get passed down to those destined to use them so that more demons and members of the Godhand get created]]. Needless to say, ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'''s world is every bit of a [[CrapsackWorld crappy place to live]] as the ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' universe.
** And, with the existence of Feudal worlds in [=40k=], it's quite easy to {{WMG}} that they're the same 'verse.
** The worst part? [[spoiler:The Idea of Evil only exists because humanity subconsciously ''[[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve wants]]'' it to exist. Apparently having demons to blame for your suffering is preferable to accepting that your pain is [[NeverMyFault your fault]] or worse, [[InherentInTheSystem no one's fault at all.]]]]

* The "feeders" from Terry Brooks' ''[[Literature/TheWordAndTheVoid The Knight of the Word]]'' novels ''almost'' fit the trope. Though they're dark and oozy and scary, they aren't very dangerous; they're more harbingers of evil than evil itself.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
