Hell is the underworld in some ancient Human religions, ruled by a figure called the Devil. It was believed people would be sent here after their death, if they did not adhere to the religion's code.

A fabled location similar to Hell is Hell-Fire. (TOS: "The Cage")

In the 17th century, John Milton of Earth wrote in his poem Paradise Lost that "It is better to rule in Hell than serve in Heaven." (TOS: "Space Seed")

In 2267, Matthew Decker considered that the Planet killer came "Right out of Hell". (TOS: "The Doomsday Machine") That same year, Lazarus had proclaimed that he would chase his counterpart, the Anti-Lazarus, to the very "Fires of Hell". (TOS: "The Alternative Factor")

The Klingon Gre'thor also resembles Human Hell, and is the place in afterlife where dishonorable warriors are brought. (TNG: "Devil's Due")

Joseph Sisko often told his son, Benjamin Sisko, that "the road to Hell is paved with good intentions." (DS9: "In the Pale Moonlight")

The word "Hell" is often used in Terran vernacular as an epithet, as in an exclamation that Captain James T. Kirk used at least once; "Let's get the Hell out of here." (TOS: "The City on the Edge of Forever")
