Most depictions of {{Hell}} involve some form of eternal punishment for the damned souls who are sent there. In [[{{Irony}} Ironic]] {{Hell}}, they get a more personal service. Each sinner gets a punishment that is an ironic reminder of the sins of which he or she is guilty. A glutton might be force-fed something unpleasant for eternity (a common version is that they're fed something they enjoyed - ceaselessly, becoming wholly sick of it, for eternity), or might be prevented from eating ever again.

* ''Theater/NoExit'' has an extremely simple but cleverly built one. You are sent to hell because you're a bad person. Your punishment is to be locked in a room forever with two ''other'' bad people, chosen specifically to drive you (and each other) crazy.[[spoiler: And it doesn't even have to be locked. The door to the characters' room pops open near the end, but the characters insist on staying to sort out the meaningless argument they're having. The only things making the hotel room a place of eternal torment are the exact same psychological flaws and unpleasantnesses that got you sent there in the first place.]]

* [[DoubleSubversion Double subverted]] [[http://nonadventures.com/2015/11/07/cruller-intentions/ here]] on ''Webcomic/TheNonAdventuresOfWonderella''. The punishment isn't related to Wonderella at all and The Devil admits that the irony is mostly relative. Then Wonderella realizes that shes's really in ''Homer Simpson's'' ironic hell, and The Devil declares that she will suffer as she lived: ''"Recycling old Simpsons jokes for all eternity!"''

* German newspaper comic ''Touche'' has a reoccurring strip about the devil welcoming the new arrivals to Hell, informing them about the particularly horrible and humorous punishment that awaits them.

* ''Theater/NoExit'' has an extremely simple but cleverly built one. Three similarly bad people in Hell are locked into a small hotel room together, forced to share the room and interact forever despite obviously despising each other. [[spoiler: Except the door isn't actually locked. Even if it wasn't, it's not built very well and could probably be busted down by kicking it; at the end it actually pops open on it's own after getting slightly jostled, but the characters insist on staying to sort out the meaningless argument they're having. The only things making the hotel room a place of eternal torment are the exact same psychological flaws and unpleasantnesses that got you sent there in the first place.]]

* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wW4JiK7xN8 Daughter]]'', a short film by Eduardo Rodriguez (which was good enough to nab him a three picture movie deal from Miramax.) To say anything about the film plotwise would be a major spoiler but the most terrifying moment of the film arguably comes at the very end, [[spoiler: when you realize the doomed mother isn't alone and there are literally ''millions'' of people in sealed rooms suffering ironic punishments based on their life crimes just like she is.]]

* Shadow/Stealth bans (making their posts visible only to them) can serve as this for [[{{Troll}} {{Trolls}}]] in general, especially since most of these people tend to be [[AttentionWhore Attention Whores]] of some kind.

* In ''An American Christmas Carol'' (not to be confused with ''Film/AnAmericanCarol''), there's this exchange between Ben Slade and Jack Latham's ghost:
--> Latham: "Hell's not what you think it is, Ben. Fire, sulfur, devils with pitchforks, none of that."
--> Slade: "Thank God."
--> Latham: "It's worse. It's living in all your past, all the time, forever. There's a politician who sits in a room with all his speeches blaring at the same time--no earplugs, either. And a king who has to keep staring at the faces of men he sent to war."
