* It's mentioned in ''Literature/TheLittleMermaid'' that, while mermaids can live three times as long as a human, they have no immortal souls. When they die they turn to sea foam, and that is that. The little mermaid's desire to marry the prince and turn human is inspired in part by her love for him and in part by her want for an afterlife. [[spoiler:After she fails to marry him and turns to sea foam, she is given a chance at earning a soul by doing good for 300 years as a spirit]].

* ''Manga/DragonBall'' has an afterlife, but if someone who kept their corporeal form in "Other World" gets killed again, they are permanently erased from existence. Unknown if the same holds true for disembodied spirits in Hell.

This is when you die, and you cease to exist. No afterlife. No feeling, no thought, no perception, no exwistence. Your existence -- everything you ''were'' -- simply disappears like a popped soap bubble.

* While the majority of Christians believe that you go to either {{Heaven}} or {{Hell}} (and occasionally Purgatory), Some Christians also believe in Conditional Immortality, also called Conditionalism or Annihilationism. Conditionalists hold that everlasting life is a gift from God, and therefore the final punishment of the unrighteous will be death. Literature/TheBible distinguishes between two states of death: Sheol or Hades, the common grave of mankind, and Gehenna, a "second death" from which there is no hope of [[BackFromTheDead coming back]], though some translations conflate both concepts as "hell". The Bible repeatedly mentions how the consequences of sin is death (Romans 6:23), humans will naturally return to dust (Genesis 3:19)(which most likely refers to the physical body, God can destroy both body and soul in Gehenna (Matthew 10:28), and everlasting life is God's gift to the righteous through his son Jesus (John 3:16). Conditionalists also tend to view Genesis in how we were banned from everlasting life as a result of sin (with Genesis 2:17 interpreted as spiritual, not physical death), but God offered it back (He never offered FluffyCloudHeaven) through Jesus, so, if we were immortal in the first place there would never be a necessity for such an elaborate scheme to reacquire everlasting life. The idea of conditional immortality is also helpful in Christian Apologetics, since so many are repulsed by the DisproportionateRetribution inherent in the Eternal Conscious Torment view of Hell.

This is fairly inconceivable to those who exist, as not-existing and existing are somewhat mutually exclusive. The idea here is that even after death you'll never know or realize you're dead and that there's no afterlife (even if you've believed in one), meaning the two examples above ''still'' don't quite give an accurate impression of what it would be like. Then again, it wouldn't be like ''anything''. Perhaps a good way to think about it is like this: try and remember what it was like before you were born (belief in {{reincarnation}} notwithstanding).

* ''Series/BlackMirror'': In ''San Junipero'', Kelly believes this happens when you die. That's why she was reluctant to upload her mind at first, since she'd never see her husband and daughter again (also why he didn't want to upload). However, eventually she chooses to anyway since she's found new love.
