Fanfic / Hell Gate

Go To

Hell Gate is a DOOM (2016)/Gate crossover by nivlac.

The Gate opens, but brings with it horrible demons that now blight the land. With this demonic horde however, also comes their bane, a man... clad in green plate.

On May 7, 2020, the author deleted the story and rebooted it. The next day, by fan request, the author returned the original version of the story to

The original version of the fanfic contains examples of:

  • Break the Haughty: Rory cockily boasts to Ankoriss that he has no way of winning against her. But immediately afterwards Ankoriss demonstrates his inhuman powers by neck chocking her, informing her that he had fought and killed other Apostles prior to meeting her, and giving her a brutal No-Holds-Barred Beatdown until killing her off for real.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: The Doom Slayer come across a ramshackle fortress occupied by bandits and slavers, and execute unbridled rage against its occupants without even bothering to waste his guns on practically weak mortals.
  • Death by Adaptation: The flame dragon is swarmed to death by demons and its corpse is used by Ankoriss for as of yet unspecific ritual.
  • Death of a Child: The Doom Slayer is pissed to find the bodies of two elf children with their throats torn out from the demons' massacre on Tuka's village.
  • Developing Doomed Characters: At least two Imperial characters introduced in the first chapter.
    • Tirus have a girl waiting back home that wants to marry rather than wanting to fight in wars. He gets his wish by abandoning the army once the demons attack, but only to be killed off by bandits/slavers, who captured his bride-to-be.
    • Oros has a daughter waiting back home and he gets stomp to death by a Baron of Hell.
  • Doomed Hometown:
    • Tuka's village is massacred by demons, and the elves are either turned into zombies or used as building material for the Gore Nest.
    • Coda Village also gets ravaged by demons as the villagers were too slow to evacuate despite being repeatedly warned by survivors from the demons' attacks days earlier. Lelei appears to be the only named survivor as she was outside the village.
  • Escort Mission: The Doom Slayer winds up in picking up Tuka after coming across her doomed village. He finds watching over her a hindrance in his eternal crusade against the demons. By the time he meets Rory, he promptly dumps Tuka in the Apostle's care.
  • Advertisement:
  • Evil Counterpart: Ankoriss is this to the Doom Slayer.
  • Evil vs. Evil: The bandit army, made up from the deserters from Alnus Hill, and demons fighting each other over their attempt to overrun Italica. Unsurprisingly it is the demons who ends up winning.
  • Frying Pan of Doom: The Doom Slayer kills a bandit with a heated up frying pan. First by roasting the sorry bastard's face off and then using it to splattering his brains.
  • Giant Foot of Stomping: Imperial soldier Oros gets stomped to death by a Baron of Hell.
  • Grievous Harm with a Body: The Doom Slayer ripped a bandit's head off (along with its spinal cord) not unlike how Kratos dealt with Helios, and using it as a improvised flail to flog another bandit to death.
  • Harmful to Minors: Pina and her Rose Knights come across a village that suffered a demon attack, where several children are seen sitting next to freshly dug up graves of their dead parents. Some are too traumatized to talk, including one child who lost his entire family except his grandfather.
  • Hell on Earth: The premise of this story is essentially Falmart taking the place of Earth in Doom II.
  • Humans Are the Real Monsters: The Doom Slayer views any evil humans (bandits, rapists, slavers, etc.) no different from demons and thus giving him just cause to kill them in the most brutal way possible.
  • Kill the God: If Ankoriss is telling the truth or exaggerating, the Falmart gods are stated to have already been or in the process of being killed by the scourge of Hell.
  • Killed Offscreen:
    • After Tirus's fled from Alnus Hill, his fate is found out by the Doom Slayer from Tirus's lover who sadly confirmed that he had been killed off by bandits.
    • Cato is not found alive when the demons attacked Coda. Lelei only last saw him going to the village to get supplies just as the demons attacked.
  • Language Barrier: The Doom Slayer doesn't understand the Falmart language and has to rely on VEGA making the translations. At the moment VEGA is slowly translating the language bits.
  • Mood Whiplash: After seven chapters of carnage and deaths, the Doom Slayer gets fed up with the Rose Knights trying to convince him to fight for the Empire and react by (non-fatally) whipping silly to the Rose Knights like a father to a spoiled child.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: The Doom Slayer gives one to the Fat Bastard bandit chieftain by breaking his limbs and fingers, drowning him in a latrine, rip his ear off, gagging him with a dirty sock, and dumping him in a mass grave.
  • No Social Skills: Along with being a complete mute, the Doom Slayer is not used to socializing with other people and he doesn't want to because all he cares about is killing demons.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Ankoriss had fought and killed other Apostles prior to meeting Rory.
  • Reality Ensues: Being in an unknown world and getting too focus on chasing demons without a thought, the Doom Slayer becomes really lost in Falmart. Furthermore, he couldn't be everywhere at once to stop the demons from massacring the next random village.
  • Running Gag: Whenever the Doom Slayer punches someone's head off it will always be written "knocking his <space> Fucking <space> head off."
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!:
    • Lowly Imperial soldier Tirus, who was initially part of the Empire's aborted invasion to Hell, quickly drop his shield and ran for his life when the soldier next to him gets melted by an Imp's energy blast.
    • When Ankoriss attacked Italica and killed Rory, several soldiers broke ranks and fled but only to be killed off by Ankoriss.
  • Villains Want Mercy: At least two bandits tried to beg the Doom Slayer to spare their lives. He doesn't.
  • Wham Episode: Chapter 8, Rory and Lelei are killed by Ankoriss, and Italica finally falls to the demons.
  • Whip It Good: The Doom Slayer stole one off from one of the Rose Knights and adds it to his arsenal after giving the rod to Pina and her knights for being annoying nuisances for trying to recruit him.
  • The Worf Effect: Apostles like Rory meets their match against Hell's champion Ankoriss. Ankoriss noted that he found out the hard way that Apostles can't be killed (technically), but he can take away their strength by eating their hearts and they would then be exorcised from reality.
  • Zombie Apocalypse: With so many Falmarters massacred by demons, the ranks of the undead rises and flooded the countryside. The Doom Slayer eventually finds a field filled with the undead and proceed to mow them down.

The rebooted version of the story contains examples of:

  • Off with His Head!: The Doom Slayer punches a Marauder in the head so hard it comes off.
  • Take Up My Sword: After the Marauder is killed, Tirus picks up his axe and finds the courage to fight the demons.


How well does it match the trope?
