* A common belief in ''Literature/TheLostFleet'''s setting is that this trope happens to anyone whose body is jettisoned in [[SubspaceOrHyperspace jump-space]] instead of given a proper burial. This becomes a plot point when a KlingonPromotion plot nearly causes the flagship to be stranded in jump-space with all hands. After the instigator of the plot is caught, and [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled commits suicide rather than be court-martialled]], Captain Geary is more than a little disturbed to realise that Fleet regulations require that their body be dumped in jump-space as an additional punishment for treason, an act that [[FishOutOfTemporalWater in his time]] was considered borderline blasphemous.

* In ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'', this is the fate of everyone who [[spoiler:took the [[CurseThatCures experimental Rash cure]]. Whatever allows the cure to halt the Rash’s progression also prevents the soul from moving on, rendering anyone who took it a deranged ghost that’s hostile to everything around them.]]

* ''TabletopGame/WraithTheOblivion'' has religious wraiths view the Shadowlands as this; instead of their promised afterlife, they're caught in a bleak, bureaucratic nightmare society of ghosts. Many of them set out to resolve their Unfinished Business and transcend their wraithly existence, moving on another plane of existence and their "true reward"; however, they get distracted along the way and end up either becoming somewhat settled in this weird new place, or can't handle things and end up falling into Oblivion, the actual state of nothingness.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Orpheus}}'' uses this as the default state for ghosts in the beginning; they're caught between the living and some sort of final resting place for the soul, but they often need help getting there, usually courtesy of the Orpheus Group's personnel, or have lost control of themselves and need to be destroyed. As the story unfolds, things are shown to be much, ''much'' more complicated than Orpheus originally assumed...

* In the Comicbook/XMen comics this seems to be the status of Comicbook/Nightcrawler after his return to life. Said return involved selling in soul to demons from one of hells dimension. He got a new body and tiny versions of himself out of the deal (who made his mutant powers stronger) and used it to bind his demonic father to earth. This left him unable to die however, since he now lacks a soul. He was fatally wounded twice in Comicbook/XMenGold and didn't die either time because neither heaven or hell would take him.

* In ''Webcomic/AndShineHeavenNow'' ChurchMilitant Enrico Maxwell was supposed to go to hell-specifically, the circle of hell set aside for those that oppose Integra Manga/{{Hellsing}} (hey, she ''is'' on a mission from God). However, a last minute act of selflessness and the also deceased Anderson lobbying for him caused him to be reassigned: he can go to heaven ''if'' he spends 5000 hours of community service as a guardian angel, and he ''has'' to guard non-Catholics. [[spoiler:One scene hints that one of the persons he protects is Integra's {{Dhampyr}} son [[Anime/VampireHunterD D]].
