* The DCU Hell isn't supposed to be like this, but when SelfDemonstrating/{{Lobo}} got sent there, he turned it into one by throwing wild parties, until he finally got kicked out. (Naturally, Heaven didn't want him either, making him pretty much immortal since then.)

* {{Invoked}} in the 1920's short film ''The Devil's Cabaret''. TheDevil is concerned about the fact that there are not enough people going to hell, so he puts on a show with singing and dancing to show people that hell can be fun and entice more people to go there.

* In ''TheOnion'', [[http://www.theonion.com/articles/hell-now-a-thriving-epicenter-of-gay-culture,33928/ Hell is apparently a "thriving epicenter" of gay culture]]. Aside from little quirks (like six-headed go-go dancers), it's described as a decent place.

* Although ''BillAndTedsBogusJourney'' mostly features [[IronicHell Ironic Hells]] tailored to the characters, a deleted scene would have added some aspects of this; before catching Satan's attention, the duo would have been forced by a demon to break rocks with hammers. Bill discovers he actually really enjoys doing so.

* Hell starts out as a spectacularly horrible aversion in ''TheSalvationWar'', but once the human invasion force arrives things improve noticeably, [[spoiler: with Julius Caeser recreating the Roman Empire. They even find oil and tons of minerals in hell]].

* Toyed with in the first series of ''BlackAdder''. After being appointed Archbishop of Canterbury, Edmund is charged with ensuring a nobleman leaves his lands to the crown instead of the church. He does this by explaining that Heaven is for people who like praising God and watering pot plants, while Hell is for pillage, adultery, and so on. Judging from the man's reaction just before dying, this is probably not true.

* ''GuitarHero 3'''s final stage has you [[spoiler:learning that your manager Lou is actually the devil in disguise, after you try to get out of your contract.]] He drags you to hell... Where you rock out a ridiculous concert with [[HornyDevils demon dancing girls]] on stage and in cages. You're doing so well he thinks you'll be able to get out of his arrangement, so he challenges you. [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome To a heavy-metal version of Devil Went Down To Georgia]]. And it, is, ''awesome''.

Added DiffLines:
** Subverted in ''Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF''. Frieza is shown in his own personal IronicHell: a TastesLikeDiabetes fairy land where angels, fairies, and living stuffed animals happily sing, dance, and play around him, while he's strung from a cocoon in a tree and ForcedToWatch.

** One of the episodes also shows that Satan does do the whole fire and brimstone thing with real sinners. Because of the "only Mormons get into heaven" thing, he doesn't bother punishing those who just wind up down there for having the wrong religion.

[[folder:Comics]] * Résurrection, the Hell of Franco-Belgian comic RequiemChevalierVampire, is a bizarre inversion of the Earth where the oceans and continents exchange place, time flows backwards and people are resurrected as various fantasy monsters like vampires, werewolves, ghouls etc. Most importantly however, the world is completely unjust; the more evil you were in life the better you are rewarded in hell, so the people who commited the worst evils are resurrected as vampires and form the top clique in the world's demonic society, while petty criminals are resurrected as zombies that languish at the bottom as either slaves to the vampires or scavengers out in the vast plains where people first enter hell. ** The worst off, though, are the Lemures (or as the English translation somewhat inexplicably labels them, Lamias) -- the setting's ghosts, these are good people who died as victims of someone who qualified for this world, and have to live in Résurrection as eternal victims, only able to escape if the person responsible for their being condemned to Résurrection is "expirated." The one perk is that they get to torment their killers in their sleep.
