** There's a certain amount of both FridgeBrilliance and ValuesResonance when you realise this would be an awful lot like getting together with your buddies to play Team Deathmatch video games and sink a few bevvies between games. [[MundaneAfterlife For eternity.]]

** Funnily enough he was saving the world ''from Angelus'', who had the conversation below shortly after he was turned. Either the centuries brought him around, or he took the whole soul incident pretty hard.

** Several vampire / demon cults, such as the Order of Aurelius, desire to bring about Hell on earth, releasing the [[EldritchAbomination Old Ones]]. This seems particularly nonsensical for vampires, who require mortals to feed to survive. It's probable they think they'll be rewarded in the new order, which given the capacity for gratitude the Old One seen in the series demonstrated towards its summoner (i.e. not making any attempt to save him when he was killed, nor caring that he was) seems unlikely. It doesn't even appear to be a trait of the transformation, because when Angelus met The Master and learned that he considered the purpose of vampires to be worshipping the Old Ones, ceasing only to feed, he promptly decided ScrewThisImOuttaHere.

* A recurring characteristic of vampires and demons in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' and ''Series/{{Angel}}'' is their desire to bring about Hell on earth, releasing the [[EldritchAbomination Old Ones]]. This seems particularly nonsensical for vampires, who require mortals to feed on to stay sane. It's probable they think they'll be rewarded in the new order, which given the capacity for gratitude the Old One seen in the series demonstrated towards its summoner (i.e. not making any attempt to save him when he was killed, nor caring that he was) seems unlikely.

Most instances of WarriorHeaven are this for non-warrior cultures (who may [[ThisIsntHeaven mistake it]] for HellIsWar). Contrast AHellOfATime and HellOfAHeaven.

Not all shady cults and religious nuts belong in this category. If someone believes the god they are trying to summon is going to bring on a new era of hugs and puppies, only to discover to their horror that all it does is unleash mayhem and rain of fire upon the world, it's not this trope. However, if the person knows from the start that their god is going to bring mayhem and rain of fire in its wake, but sincerely sees this as the epitome of ultimate bliss, then you have an InfernalParadise.

* [[spoiler:[[FauxAffablyEvil Isla Yura]]]] of ''PandoraHearts'' and his BrainwashedAndCrazy [[ReligionOfEvil religious cult]] attempt to [[spoiler:bring the world into [[EldritchLocation the Abyss]] by recreating the Tragedy of Sablier at Oz's second coming-of-age party]]. However, while the cult members truly believe that [[spoiler:the Abyss]] really is a paradise of golden light, [[spoiler:Yura]] knew the truth all along and is only attempting it ForTheEvulz.

** This is how the {{Goth}} Kids saw their worship of [[Franchise/CthuluMythos Cthulu]]. They grow disillusioned when [[MundaneFantastic things more or less go on like normal]], despite the Dark God teaming up with [[TokenEvilTeammate Cartman]] to destroy hippies and synagogues around the world.

-->'''Pete:''' I thought that when Cthulhu rose from the dead all was gonna be darkness and pain. I thought at ''least'' school would be canceled!
** In a related matter, {{Satan}} wound up getting his BastardBoyfriend, Saddam Hussein, sent to Heaven, which was otherwise populated only by Mormons who cheerfully spend eternity putting on plays. He clearly considers this a far worse punishment than Hell, [[AHellOfATime with its odd mixture of torture and luaus]].

* Many atheists see monotheistic / abrahamic depictions of Heaven as this, since they'd be forced to spend eternity with a group of devoutly religious people.
