"The Gates of Hell" (地獄の門 Jigoku no Mon) is the thirteenth chapter of the Super Dragon Ball Heroes: Dark Demon Realm Mission! manga.
Xeno Pan, having accidentally been brought along with the Time Patrol and Demigra Army by Robelu's magic, hears from Xeno Vegeta that they are members of the Time Patrol. Wondering if her own timeline has been destroyed, Xeno Pan decides to join the Time Patrol herself believing that her timeline will be restored if they defeat their enemy and that it would be better than just waiting around, with Xeno Gohan against the idea. Xeno Pan asks Robelu if she can give her some new clothes befitting the rest of the group and she obliges.
Demigra begins to use his magic to restore the Dragon Balls' energy and tells the Time Patrol to follow Robelu's orders while he does so. Pan asks Demigra what he plans to wish for but Chamel tells her to stop asking so many questions. Using his magic, Chamel opens up a portal transporting them to the Demon Realm, where they see six floating Hell Gates. Robelu explains that inside Hell Gate is a Demon God helping to power a barrier protecting Mechikabura's Tower. Robelu uses her magic to transform Xeno Trunks' sword into a Key Sword and instructs him to stay behind to use the key to suppress the barrier's power and weaken the Demon Gods while the others enter to take them out. Xeno Pan is told to stay behind and cheer Trunks on.
Xeno Goten heads through the red Hell Gate where Dabura is waiting for him. Xeno Vegeta heads through the yellow Hell Gate where Gravy taunts him, though Xeno Vegeta is unconcerned. Xeno Gohan heads through the black Hell Gate, linked to an area of Hell resembling Earth, only to be surprised that Xeno Pan has followed him through. On the ground below, Shroom is there waiting for them, having slaughtered his soldiers. He fires off an energy wave from his scythe and Xeno Gohan narrowly moves Xeno Pan out of the way. Xeno Gohan shouts at Xeno Pan for being a distraction and she flees the scene in tears. Xeno Gohan transforms into a Super Saiyan and engages Shroom in battle. He manages to kick Shroom to the ground but then notices a small cut on his face from the scythe. Xeno Gohan falls to the ground and reverts back to his normal state as Shroom tells him that he has reaped his soul.
As he swings his scythe to finish off Xeno Gohan, he is suddenly blasted from behind by Xeno Pan who apologizes to her father and urges him not to die. Shroom starts walking over to Xeno Pan when Xeno Gohan grabs his cloak. Gohan transforms into a Super Saiyan 4 and flings Shroom away. Gohan pats his daughter on her head and thanks her for saving him. Shroom asks how Gohan can still be fighting with his soul reaped, but Gohan replies that the people dear to him make him stronger, and someone willing to slash his own comrades wouldn't understand. Shroom charges at Xeno Gohan with his scythe but in a surprise move instead throws it at Xeno Pan. Xeno Gohan deflects the scythe and blasts Shroom with a powerful Kamehameha that defeats Shroom at last. Xeno Gohan then collapses from exhaustion immediately afterwards.
Back at the entrance to the Hell Gates, Xeno Trunks worries about Xeno Pan, and notices that the black Hell Gate's energy was cut off. Meanwhile inside the white Hell Gate, connected to the Demon Realm's Southeast Prison Complex, Chamel faces off against Towa and Fin who has retained his Dark Gogeta form. Towa explains that Fin only has to sample someone's DNA once in order to access it again at any point. Towa asks Chamel to switch back to their side, offering to experiment on him to make him cuter, but while Chamel tries to think of a plan he is suddenly knocked aside by a charging Dark Broly, now maskless.

Game and Manga differences
- Xeno Pan in the game was actively recruited into the Time Patrol, rather than being accidentally brought along.
- There were multiple Key Swords in the game, which were handed out by Demigra. Xeno Trunks' sword was not transformed into one of them.
- Robelu stayed outside in the game rather than Xeno Trunks.
- The Demon Gods in the game were backed up by the inhabitants of the words that the Hell Gates connected to. The matchups were also different:
- Xeno Trunks and Xeno Pan fought Xeno Dabura and Babidi's Forces.
- Xeno Gohan fought Gravy, Garlic Jr. and the Spice Boys.
- Xeno Goku fought Putine, Hirudegarn and Hoi.
- Xeno Vegeta fought Towa, Mira, Frieza, Sorbet, Tagoma and Shisami.
- Demigra fought Salsa, Baby Vegeta and the Tuffle Parasites.
- Xeno Goten fought Shroom, Dr. Gero, Dr. Myuu, Android 17 and Hell Fighter 17.
- The battle with Dark Gogeta took place outside the tower in the game after the Hell Gates were closed, and all the Demon Gods were present.
- Towa's explanation of how Fin retained his Dark Gogeta form had already been provided in the game prior to these events.
- Dark Broly doesn't appear at this point in the game, as at this time he had been killed inside Mechikabura's Tower by the Dark Empire.
- After Shroom's defeat, Xeno Pan pulls down her eye lid and sticks out her tongue as a taunt. This is the same thing she did in the trailer for Universe Mission 9 after kicking Salsa.
