** C.S. Lewis also has as a nontraditional heaven as part of the ''Chronicles of {{Narnia}}'', which [[spoiler: looks ''almost'' identical to the 'normal' world]], or rather the 'normal' world is almost identical to Heaven; as Professor Digory Kirke puts it in ''Literature/TheLastBattle'':

* ''ItsAWonderfulLife'' uses the "nebula of lights" version in the opening, showing three stars flashing as the angels talk in a voice over.

* In the WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fandom, [[http://www.fimfiction.net/user/kalash93 Kalash93]] and [[http://www.fimfiction.net/user/The+Descendant TheDescendant]] both mention something called The Well of Souls. All that's known is that it's some sort of afterlife, although the way it is used in their stories makes it roughly an analogy for heaven.

* The heaven of Dante's ''DivineComedy'' is the "nebula of lights" version, with radiant souls flocking around in symbolic constellations like a rose, a cross and an eagle-- although in illustrations, there's usually some fluffy clouds there as well.

* ''TheGreatDivorce'' by Creator/CSLewis has people visiting Heaven on a day pass from Hell--neither is quite the stereotypical place.

* ''DeadLikeMe'' never shows Heaven, but does show what the passage there looks like: whatever the deceased most loved to do in life. One guy sees a cliff he once dived off. A girl in the first episode sees a carnival. The Reapers that take the souls can see these images too, but are not allowed to enter them. [[spoiler: One Reaper does, halfway through the first season, and completely vanishes. Despite Rube trying to find out what happened to her, it's left entirely unanswered.]]

* [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] ''horrifyingly'' in ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}''. [[CrapSaccharineWorld Paradiso]] may LOOK like FluffyCloudHeaven, but it's more like the [[LightIsNotGood Light-Themed]] version of [[{{Hell}} Inferno]]. Note that [[DarkIsEvil Hell really IS a bad place]] and that the [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Angels]] are {{Eldritch Abomination}}s. [[CosmicHorrorStory You do the math]]. Even more obvious in [[VideoGame/{{Bayonetta2}} the sequel]], where playing as the Masked Lumen in Tag Climax shows creepy heavenly hands reaching for you when you're low on life points, clearly meant to be the counterpart to the demonic hands that reach for Bayonetta or Jeanne in normal game play.

* From the ''{{VideoGame/Bayonetta}}'' franchise is Paradiso, a [[GoldAndWhiteAreDivine shining gold and marble]] World of Light. However, it is just that, a world of ''light'', [[LightIsNotGood not a world of good]], and the EldritchAbomination [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Angels]] of Paradiso act as the antagonists throughout both games.
