The Underworld (冥界 Mekai), also known as the Netherworld (ネザーワールド Nezāwārudo), is a location in High School DxD, and the home of the Devils and Fallen Angels, and by extension the Gods of Hell.


The Underworld is roughly the same size as the Human world, but with a much larger landmass, as there are no oceans just lakes. The sky was originally purple during both the day and night, but the current Four Great Satans adjusted the flow of time to match it in the human world for the sake of the reincarnated Devils. They reproduced an artificial moon using Demonic Powers and made the night's darkness the same with the human world. 

The Underworld was originally split into two regions: The Devils' Region and the Fallen Angels' Region, which ended in Volume 4 after the creation of the peace treaty between the leaders of the Three Factions.
