** [[http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=1406 Atheist Hell]]: Having to listen to bad arguments for the devil's existence for all eternity. (Obviously they know he exists by then, so the arguments are a case of RightForTheWrongReason, and clearly it's really freaking annoying.)

** In [[http://www.smbc-comics.com/comic/flawed "Flawed"]], it's revealed that {{God}}'s ironic hell, in punishment for vainglorious obsession for creating order and beauty back when he was alive, is to run ''this'' universe instead.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheGoodPlace'':
** The Bad Place is made out of part this part classic torture. One character who has been there had to plan a baby shower to people she didn't knew, getting electrified every time she forgot someone's name and everything happened to jazz music in the background.
** [[spoiler:"The Good Place" turns out to be fake, it's actually a new attempt at a different type of torture in the Bad Place by Michael, which forces Eleanor, Jason, Tahini and Chidi into things they consider nightmarish. Eleanor is surrounded by people better than her and guilt ridden all the time, Chidi is forced to make immoral and unethical choices left and right, Tahini is always being bested and Jason is left completely lost on how to deal with it.]]

** This is explicitly shown to be in the "Ironic Hell Department", so presumably it's happening to everyone else there.

* [[spoiler:Lotso's]] eventual fate in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'' can be interpreted as this. On top of being ''[[KnightOfCerebus by far]]'' the darkest villain to appear in the ''Toy Story'' films, [[spoiler:Lotso]] is a StrawNihilist who's life view is that all toys are just trash in the end because children don't really love them. He ends up [[spoiler:[[AndIMustScream being tied to the front of a dump truck forever]] due to Sid finding him and taking a shining to him because he had a similar-looking bear when he was a kid]].

* ''StarWars'' features this with Darth Vader. He betrayed the Jedi to learn how to prevent death. His death is prevented, in the most painful way imaginable.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheSinnersOfHell'': Prof. Yajima, who took water from a dying fellow soldier during World War II gets a torment similar to that of Tantalus--forever back in the war, dying of thirst, crawling to a puddle that evaporates as he approaches it.

* GrandFinale of ''Series/TheShield:'' Vic's new "job" is actually probation as a pencil-pushing office drone. Instead of being out on the streets in the thick of the action, as the Strike Team often was, heís stuck at a {{desk|jockey}}, indoors, in a suit and tie. Heís not allowed to possess, let alone use, a weapon of any kind. If he wants to keep the lights and air conditioning on after 6:00, he has to notify a specific extension. If wants to work the thermostat, he has to ask maintenance. And if he wants to avoid going to prison (for all of the crimes he confessed to in front of his new supervisor), he has to obey the terms of the immunity deal to the letter, without any mistakes or complaints. Oh, and (1) his wife has taken the kids and run, on the order that he not be told anything about their new location, and (2) his new co-workers do this for a living and donít care what he thinks or what happens to him.
