* In ''ComicBook/{{Supreme}}'', Daxia is a pocket dimension where all the various iterations of Darius Dax, the most evil human being in the universe, go after their reality is [[RetCon "revised"]]. It's a nightmare city of endless night, crime, violence and death. It's so terrible, that an actual Nazi is just one more face in the crowd. And they love every second of it. When the latest Dax arrives, he actually weeps with joy.

* 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. Or in regards to some scriptural depictions of heaven, like spending all of eternity singing repetitive praises to God.

* WebOriginal/TheSalvationWar: Heaven is portrayed as an okay place...if your an angel living in one of those homes made of jewels. If your a human who has been totally and blindly faithful, you get the ideal standard of living in the ''Middle Ages'': becoming a serf to an angel, where no bandit will steal your crops, but you will be forced into working for a demon [[spoiler: Then there's the concentration camp that Michael establishes]].

* A more subtle example: as part of a deal with [[EldritchAbomination The One King]], [[TheDragon Valfred]] and his followers in ''SuikodenTierkreis'' aren't erased from existence when the One King is summoned, instead living in the "one true world" of perfect order. The heroes actually get to see this world, and [[spoiler:it's a GroundhogDayLoop of each person's perfect day.]] But that's not this trope. What's this trope is when [[spoiler:they realize that their memories don't match, and they can't all have lived the same day. Then they see this "paradise" from the outside, as those in it blindly wander through the ruins of the normal world, [[LotusEaterMachine hallucinating the presence of their friends and family]]. And Valfred ''knew'' it was all an illusion--he simply could not let go of the family he lost, and he was willing to sacrifice everything and everyone for their imaginary resurrection.]]

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

Subtrope of EsotericHappyEnding. \n Not to be confused with ThisIsntHeaven, which is when something that seems Heavenly turns out to be a twisted form of Hell.

** The ThirdOption in the original game is to screw both sides and create a more balanced, humane society in which people have freedom, but with restrictions to protect the weak and rein in the strong, and in which different philosophies and both humans and demons are allowed to coexist... but canonically, both the Chaos and Law sides exploit the freedom, fairness, and permissiveness of this society to undermine it and enact their own "utopia," with Law ultimately winning out and creating the society we see in ''ShinMegamiTenseiII''
