* There's also the 1985 film ''Film/TheHeavenlyKid'', where a guy killed in TheFifties is stuck in "Midtown", and has to perform some kind of deed before he can go "Uptown". And it turns out he has to play guardian angel to the son of his former girlfriend. (Oh yeah, and the guy she married was [[AnimalHouse Niedermayer]].)

* In the ''Literature/{{Chalion}}'' series, most souls upon death are taken up by the appropriate god, and the gods offer a small miracle at each person's [[DueToTheDead funeral rites]] to confirm just Who took the soul up. When a soul ''isn't'' taken up, it's SeriousBusiness, not just for the mourners, but for the gods as well. (And a major theme running through most of the books in the series.)

* In the ''Literature/{{Chalion}}'' series, anyone who [[DueToTheDead doesn't get the proper funeral rite]] can't be taken up by the gods and ends up a lost soul, although they can be redeemed by a living saint. Shamans attach an animal spirit to their soul and need another shaman to separate the two when they die. What will happen to the last shaman, who will not have a colleague to separate the totem spirit from his soul when he dies? Even the gods aren't sure.

* The traditional song ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-DytJkA-c4 "Killieburn Brae"]]'' tells the story of a wife who is taken off to Hell by the Devil.

* In the "A Cause to Daikon For" DLC of ''Videogame/MuramasaTheDemonBlade'', Gonbe, his wife and his cohorts]] end up dying and sent to hell, but due to the events of both the main game and the other DLC storylines, not only is hell lacking in demons, but they're all too tired to properly torment their souls. King Enma eventually decides to not only banish them and bring them back to life, but also ensure that their fields are bountiful and their lords wise and benevolent to ensure that he never has to deal with them again.
