In many religious traditions, Hell is a place of suffering and punishment in the afterlife. Religions with a linear divine history often depict Hell as endless. Religions with a cyclic history often depict Hell as an intermediary period between incarnations. Typically these traditions located Hell under the external core of the Earth's surface and often included entrances to Hell from the land of the living. Other afterlife destinations included Heaven, Purgatory, Paradise, Nirvana, Naraka, and Limbo.
Hell is often portrayed as populated with demons, who torment the damned. Many are ruled by a death god, such as Nergal, Hades, Yama or the Christian/Islamic Devil, called Satan or Lucifer. Family Guy introduced another death God called the Super Devil in "Boys Do Cry".
In "A Picture's Worth a Thousand Bucks", Satan appears in a scene when Peter Griffin said he would sell his soul to be famous.

Satan asks for a lawyer, and everyone in Hell raises their hand.
