* VH1's short-lived GenreAnthology series ''Series/StrangeFrequency'' features a story about two Metal-heads who die in a car crash. They go to Hell, expecting it to be incredibly metal, as it's described in Music/BlackSabbath songs. Instead, they are forced to spend eternity in a '70s Disco. However, one of the two is revived, giving him a second chance at life.

*[[spoiler:[[WebVideo/NerdCubed Dan]] decided to put Matt through 1 of these in his 2.5 million subscriber special. Apparently, Matt failed to give Dan his Castle DVDs back in a timely manner so he made him play a Henderson Challenge from one of the episodes with him being very calm about it while Matt was raging and screaming the entire way. Matt was not amused when he heard the news.]]

* The DarkerAndEdgier ''{{Redwall}}'' fanfic [[http://www.rovl.org/vi/?p=display&e=8482 It Makes Me Happy That I'm Not Them]] inflicts these on a few of the BigBad characters, as well as the OC lead. We hear mention of Gabool being trapped among constantly-ringing bells, similar to the hallucinations which drove him insane in canon, and the {{Narcissist}} Ublaz being rendered "furless". The punishment of the canon character we see onscreen is rather less intense; Swartt Sixclaw, who was, among other things, an abusive husband and father, is effectively forced to become a StepfordSmiler.

** A more mundane version with Sansa. In the first season, Sansa refuses to support Arya's or Joffrey's side in a quarrel so she can stay with her beloved prince and not make her house look bad. She certainly ends up getting one of the two.

* Series finale of ''Series/TheShield:'' Vic's new job as a pencil-pushing suit represents all of his worst nightmares. Surrounded by colleagues who hate his guts and do this for a living, it is the final post he will ever hold in his chosen field. No fame, no action, no authority, no power, and he's entirely on his own.

** Another joke (which can feature RealLife figures for parody): a man dies, goes to Hell, and gets to choose between three different punishments. The last room he sees is a man having sex with a beautiful woman. He says that he wants ''that'' one, naturally, so Satan turns toward the coital couple and says, "(Woman's name), your replacement is here!"

* ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'''s depiction of hell is just an empty room with a moose eating walnuts.

* In FanFic/RitesOfAscension, Twilight Sparkle’s neglectful, shallow, elitist, racist, and borderline abusive social-climber of a mother Twilight Velvet hits Celestia’s BerserkButton of tribalism with a giant mallet. The end result of the use of the “mud pony” slur? Newly-minted Grand Mage Twilight Sparkle giving Twilight Velvet her old job as Ponyville Librarian... and her old assignment of weekly friendship reports.

* In the Polish ''VideoGame/QuakeI'' fanfiction story "[[http://riad.pk.edu.pl/~pmj/quake/stories19.html Jak KraQsa mara senna zmogla]]", those who had grown too addicted to playing ''Quake'' are forced to spend eternity in Hell killing each other in a neverending deathmatch game (with actual pain). The only reprieve is available through winning a match, which grants the victor a minute or so of peace in an empty room.



* This is a possible interpretation of the intentionally ambiguous VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine. The VillainProtagonist, Captain Walker, is a war criminal. WordOfGod is that it is perfectly valid to believe that he died or was mortally wounded during the in media res introductory sequence and that the game actually takes place as a horrific DyingDream or as an Ironic Hell, SelfInflictedHell, and JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind. The game marks all hallucinatory cut scenes with a fade to white, as opposed to fade to black for all real events. All the endings fade to white.

** ''WebVideo/AfterHours'' implies that the characters are trapped in one of these, doomed to endless pop culture conversations in a lousy diner.
