*** Perhaps worse is everything that leads up to the final reveal: He gets the totality of everything that was his fault rubbed in his face, including the fates of the three children that his wife killed right after they came out of the womb... because he was so insistent on having a son to carry on his family name that his wife believed he would never accept a daughter.

* This occurs to ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' DarkFic ''FanFic/{{Ladder}}''. Buttercup dies on a mission, Blossom dies by [[spoiler:accidentally killing herself]], and later Bubbles dies [[spoiler:after a bad fall]]. The Professor decides to bring them back to life (though he uses Ashley, who was essentially Buttercup's clone, because Buttercup's original body was cremated). This [[CameBackWrong doesn't work out well]]. Each time something goes wrong. Either the girls are an EmptyShell, they act violently towards him (which is implied to be because they're enraged about what he's doing rather than a having a DamagedSoul), they have vivid, graphic hallucinations and dreams of their previous deaths, or they simply start remembering the past. Professor Utonium keeps on killing them and reviving them in hopes that they will end up mentally stable and won't realize that they had previously died.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fanfic [[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/303893/step-right-in-and-start-again Step Right In And Start Again]] this is the fate met by Starlight Glimmer. She is stuck in an [[GroundhogDayLoop eternal timeloop]] where every day she starts up back at the same place, [[spoiler:being trialed for her crimes in the season 5 finale]]. To make it all worse she [[AmnesiaLoop keeps no memories]] of what happened the previous day. She's horribly scared and anxious already but being transported [[spoiler:centuries into the future]] or even [[spoiler:so far in the future that everything is darkness and nothing else exists]] only makes it infinite times more worse.

* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': The souls of [[BigBad Gendo]] and [[TheManBehindTheMan the SEELE Committee]] were ''carefully'' extracted from their bodies and imbedded in the walls, ceiling, and floor of the [[EldritchLocation Hall of Torment]], where they'd remain trapped for all eternity, being tortured by dark gods.
-->The senior members of SEELE and his father were imbedded in the walls, ceiling, and floor of this place, screaming in agony, their souls trying to claw their way out of membranes of unreality that would trap them for all eternity.

** The true version of [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-2718]] is a subversion, as death is constant agony due to [[spoiler:feeling every single atom of your being in pain.]] It's horrible enough for one of the OS-5 to classify death as a XK-class apocalypse.

* While any version of Hell is bad, Hinduism has a special one called Avichi, which is for souls that are so evil, they're kicked out of the reincarnation cycle. That only happens to those who commit one of [[ThisIsUnforgivable the Five Grave Offenses]] (killing an Arhat an enlightened being, shedding the blood of the Buddha, murdering one of your parents, or creating a schism within the Sangha, a community of pacifist Buddhist monks and nuns). Most Buddhist monks consider it taboo to publically condemn a man to Avichi, as it would be making a judgment mortals have no right to make; even the will of gods cannot condemn a man to this Hell. Buddhist dogma specifically states that a sinner forges his own path here.

* In the ''TabletopGames/{{Ravenloft}}'' campaign, becoming the Lord of a Domain is this, as it's an IronicHell a SelfInflictedHell, or both, which punishes the Lord for an unforgivable crime. Also, most curses [[GypsyCurse cast by the Vistani]] won't kill the victim, but ''will'' make him pray for death.

** Played even straighter with the fate of [[spoiler: Crystal, who's turned into a self-aware flesh golem in constant pain by Bozozk, who wanted her to kill Haley. The fact that this was a fate worse than death ended up [[HoistByHisOwnPetard biting him in the rear]], as Haley was able to convince Crystal to turn on him by pointing out that Haley merely ''killed'' Crystal, while Bozzok did this.]]
