* One ''ComicStrip/TheFarSide'' cartoon featured a scene in Hell with three rooms, one for terrorists, one for mass murderers, and one for "people who drove too slow in the fast lane". (Curiously, the guys in that third one didn't seem to be suffering as much as the ones in the other two.)

* The central point of ''Radio/OldHarrysGame'' is that nearly ''everyone'' ends up in Hell, and Heaven is practically empty. While most of the people we see the demons actually torturing have done something genuinely terrible, Hell is also where the Professor ends up, a genuinely good and kind man who just happens not to believe in God. In one episode Satan mentions that a lot of ''saints'' ended up in Hell for one reason or another. When dogs and babies start turning up, though, Satan decides EvenEvilHasStandards, and it's time to sort things out.

* Despite the popular image in Western countries, Buddhism is absolutely this trope. The Buddhist version of Hell is more comparable to Purgatory as you don't stay there for very long but you are subjected to very extreme torment in order to cleanse the negative karma which even once removed still influences where and how you shall be reborn. This does not make Buddhist Hell any less terrifying especially considering just how easy it is to be sent there. Even being rude to your parents for whatever reason can get you sent to Hell if the first Yama King decides that you failed to show Filial Piety (loyalty to parents and grandparents and older relatives such as your siblings or your aunts and uncles) where it should had been expressed. Just for your information, the ten Yama Kings do not really pay attention to context which means that even killing mosquitos could be spiritually risky.

* ''Series/{{Reaper}}'': While sins have apparently drifted over the centuries, when the Bible was first written, it was perfectly accurate. Meaning that even things like wearing fabric woven from multiple cloths could get you sent to Hell.
-->'''Devil:''' Did you know I used to get the people who ate fish? Just fish. Do you have any idea how ''unsatisfying'' that is?

If everyone gets sent to Hell in-universe, then it's an example of this trope.

* ''Literature/TheBible'' is commonly misinterpreted by followers and detractors alike to create this idea that even the slightest sinning will guarantee you eternal damnation and suffering as we know it today unless you just call yourself a Christian. However, it is widely disputed (if not straight up debunked) that this version of Hell actually exists in the Bible by biblical and Christian history scholars. The short version of it is that Hell basically just meant "the grave" and possibly no known afterlife (even that might not be eternal) since the Jews did not believe in Hell and are even suggested to go in for reincarnation. After that, the Christian idea of Hell as we know it today was taken from works like Dante's Inferno and used by the formerly hyper-corrupt church to keep followers following. Even today, the various branches of Christianity and Christian-based spirituality widely interpret Hell differently - from Hell being a place of endless suffering to just a state of being while on this planet or even a place where ALL people go to to have their sins cleansed before reaching heaven.

* This is one of the five fundamental tenets of Calvinism (Total Depravity, the 'T' of the TULIP). According to Calvinist doctrines, the whole of humankind is reprobate and [[YouCannotFightFate predestined to Hell]] ''by default''. Even one sin is enough to earn a person God's wrath, and everyone is born with an innate tendency to sin. This basically means ''everyone is destined to go Hell no matter what'' -- if you live in the world, you are going to sin and earn God's wrath at some point. God, in his infinite grace, has selected some people before they are born to be saved, and the Christ's atonement is reserved to them and to them alone. The rest of humankind will go to Hell because of their natural depravity. The Lutherans have compared the Calvinist salvation doctrine to lottery -- humans can do absolutely nothing to effect their salvation, and everyone is destined to go to Hell by default (unless, of course, they belong amongst those lucky few whom God has predestined to salvation before their birth). This could qualify as UpToEleven variant of this trope. It is worth noting, however, that John Calvin believed it was impossible for humans to know who was predestined to salvation and who wasn't unless they demonstrated their salvation (or lack thereof) by their deeds...so the road is a bit bumpier from a human perspective.
