* In ''Series/TheGoodPlace'' everything people do is assigned a positive or negative score to be tallied up when they die. The infallible judging standard is somewhat utilitarian, by human standards often petty or arbitrary (supporting a sports team can be positive or negative depending on which one it is), and your net score needs to be extremely high - a running gag is revealing surprising people who were sent to the Bad Place, which includes ''Florence Nightingale''.

* In The Adventurer by Mika Waltari, after the peasants' revolt led by Thomas Muntzer fails at Frankenhausen and as the leaders of the rebellion are being executed, a mercenary captain who is about to be executed looks at the bottom of his pint right after Muntzer has been beheaded and claims to see through it to hell where Thomas Muntzer is already along with a bunch of other people. Then he turns it upside down, pretending to look at heaven where he sees no one. (The naive narrator protagonist assures the reader that he probably didn't actually see hell or heaven through his pint.)

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Nobilis}}'', the standards angels set for Heaven are very, very high and stringent. So much so, in fact, that not a single human soul has ever gotten into Heaven. '''''Ever'''''.

The only comfort is that you do have to be pretty evil to go to Hell, and the people who didn't qualify for either Heaven or Hell gets reincarnated instead - but still, you have an infinite number of lifetimes and you only have to be evil in a single one of them to go to Hell, meaning that your eternal damnation can [[EvilOnlyHasToWinOnce never be avoided, only postponed.]]

* In both the [[TheDCU DC]] and [[MarvelUniverse Marvel]] 'verses there have been examples of people getting sent to Hell with magic, rather than through any fault of their own. Granted, in most such cases they were able to get out later.

* ''Literally'' going to Hell seems to be pretty rare in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', but since your other options for afterlives are a desert where monsters hunt you until you become one of them and a depressing slum where you will live in poverty and MedievalStasis while ruled over by unquestionable overlords (unless said overlords recruit you, in which case you will serve as a soldier until the aforementioned monsters manage to brutally kill you), going ''figuratively'' to Hell (that is, being sent to an awful and inescapable afterlife) is, to the best of our knowledge, a complete certainty.
** To be fair, only part of Soul Society is poor slums. Plenty of the Rukongai is nice and peaceful, and being a Shinigami seems to guarantee you a nice life in the Seiretei (unless you get put under [[MadScientist Captain Mayuri's]] command, or are too weak to avoid being killed by the Hollows). Additionally, Soul Society serves more as a sort of hostel for the souls of the dead until they are eventually reincarnated anyway, rather than necessarily being a final destination.

* In ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', the two afterlives that we know of are either to become a restless spirit (likely because of UnfinishedBusiness) or get sent to the Abyss (if you became an [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Apostle]], are branded as a sacrifice, died with hatred in your heart, or any of a great number of things). While the Abyss is stated to be what most people think of as heaven ''or'' hell, any human who goes there [[LossOfIdentity gets one's own ego dissolved]], so most people would consider it to be Hell. Seemingly the best afterlife in this CrapsackWorld is no afterlife at all, which might not even be possible.

** In ''WesternAnimation/SouthParkBiggerLongerAndUncut'', Kenny has been killed (again) and his soul drifts up towards heaven. However, as soon as he touches it, he gets an "Access Denied" message and tumbles straight down to Hell, which has a "Population" sign showing a huge and ever-increasing number, whilst the equivalent sign for Heaven revealed a tiny population. And it's not as if Kenny has exactly had time to sin much. All PlayedForLaughs of course.
