Hell is not the same place as Hades (though some confuse the two locations). However evil souls who pass through Hades may be judged and forced to wander the Halls of Hades rather than sent to hell.
Demons are reeking creatures from hell, who constantly attempt to free themselves into mortal world.
Demons attempt to open up World Gates, gates between the underworld and the real world. When the Hero, reached the top of the spiral staircase to the top of the tower in the Lost City, what he saw was a vision of hell. The Demon Wizard was standing upon a platform hovering above the infinite abyss of the underworld, plotting with his evil master in the underworld. When he defeated the Demon Wizard the gate to the underworld was closed forever.
It it is taught in the FACS training manuals that when you cross a demon from hell with a lawyer, you get another lawyer.
Hell is the place for the 'damned'. It is a very hot place.

Behind the scenesEdit
Logos seemingly refers to Hades as "Hell" twice (or at least he refers to Hell in general as a metaphor for 'death' and extreme danger). However, a message within Hades, says its "Hades, not Hell". The Hydra's cave is described as a 'hell hole'.
The Quest for Glory: The Authorized Guide establishes that the world which the demons originated from is Hell. It also establishes parts of the Demon's world had already bled into the 'real world', thus explaining the hellish red skies above, sickly green glow of the crevasse, and the spiny growths portruding out of the stone work of the platform where the Demon Wizard was opening the World Gate, as well as the evil weird bio-looking mirrors.
One of the death messages in QFG3 occurs if the player attempts to pass through the open World Gate into the land of Demons. The player realizes he will soon expire.
Mild curse words associated with 'hell' appear throughout the QFG series. The term 'damn' can be found in QFG2, and QFG5 as an mild curse word. 'Darn' appear sin QFG1, 3,4, and 5. Drat ('God rot it') appears in QFG5 and Hoyle 3. 'Heck' appears in QFG1EGA/QFG1VGA, QFG2, and QFG5.
The Paladin training in School for Heroes referred to the 'fires of Hell'.
