* In the ''RockosModernLife'' episode "To Heck and Back", [[FatIdiot Heffer]] chokes on a chicken bone and goes to [[GoshDarnItToHeck Heck]], and is forced by [[FluffyTheTerrible Dark Lord Peaches]] to sit in front of a TV (which has no remote) to watch the effects of his gluttony on others (more specifically, his best friend [[UnluckyEverydude Rocko]]).

** A LooseCanon alternate universe shows the [[EnfantTerrible Nameless Filly]] who killed Cupid being stopped from murdering him due to [[ForWantOfANail ponies praying for his protection that day]], meaning Turris (the God of Defense) was keeping a close eye on him that day. Turris [[BigDamnHero came to his nephew's aid]] and [[VictoryByEndurance his unbreakable defense ultimately causes the Concept Killing Spear to snap]], after which he used the broken half against itself to RetGone it from existence, the resulting blast kills the Nameless Filly. In Hell, the Nameless Filly is condemned to a GroundhogDayLoop where she returns to before her attempt on Cupid, but can ''never'' actually succeed in her goal, doomed to try and fail for all eternity unless she actually [[TheSociopath lets love have a place in her heart.]] Given her actions would've erased countless innocent people from existence for a petty grudge, its a fitting fate.

* When ''FanFic/MyImmortal'' had its author's account hacked, the hacker uploaded a chapter where Enoby died after being shot by the Snap-posessed James/Samoro. She was promptly sent to hell... and decked out in preppy clothes.

* ''Film/BillAndTedsBogusJourney'' featured this when the boys accidentally wind up in hell and locked in a maze like corridor featuring their worst fears. (For Bill: It was getting kissed by old granny. Ted: Being chased by the Easter Bunny for stealing his brother's easter basket as a child. For Both: Having to deal with a Military General pushing them to the brink (which was a reference from the first film). Luckily, challenging Death bails them out.

* In the Soul Yards of ''TabletopGame/InNomine'', the demons of Hell divvy up new arrivals based on whose Word they most fulfilled in life. (With some cheating and stealing, of course; [[NoHonorAmongThieves this is Hell.]]) So war criminals go to the battlefields of Gehenna, media drones to the mindlessness of Perdition, and those who obsessed over technology become experimental subjects in the labs of Tartarus, for exemple.

* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' presents us with a variation of this trope, in form of [[spoiler: EMIYA (aka. Servant Archer)]], whose attempts to fulfil his dream of becoming a hero brought him into a situation where he only killed people "for greater good", without ever saving anyone, [[ICannotSelfTerminate and incapable of ending the cycle]]. [[DespairEventHorizon He doesn't take it well]].

* ''Webcomic/AwfulHospital'': Each of individual Zones. See if you can spot the motif of dreadful backwardness running through them all:
** The Hospital has lots of doctors, yet many of them don't know how to treat the patients they bring in; it's a place where you're liable to get SICKER.
** Burger, Inc. has lots of food, yet all of it is unfit for human consumption, and it's a place where you're liable to get EATEN yourself.
** The Morgue has lots of cadavers, yet it's not a lifeless place at all. Indeed, the corpses are TEEMING with no end of lifeforms.

* ''ComicBook/{{WITCH}}'' has the Tower of Mist, Kandrakar's prison, that, from the two known cells, seems to be based on this concept: the power-hungry Phobos was stuck in a cell that sucked away his power, and Cedric, a [[WickedCultured book-loving]] ConsummateLiar [[VoluntaryShapeshifting capable of changing his form at will]], was [[ShapeshifterModeLock locked in his human form]] (not the true one) and stuck in a room filled with books that only contain fiction and lies. [[ActuallyPrettyFunny Cedric actually appreciated the joke]].

* In ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', [[spoiler:Soryu Kyoku Zeppelin abandons her daughter and hangs herself and a doll she'd been pretending was her daughter. So naturally she's in her daughter's Evangelion unit, protecting her for all time]].
** [[spoiler: It should be noted that she had been driven insane from a failed attempt to sync with Eva, and it is suggested that the part inside Unit 02 was the sane, daughter-loving part.]]



* The short ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Evangelion]]'' story ''[[http://www.members.tripod.com/aletheia3/case.html The Case of Lorenz Kihl]]'' starts off from the last moments before [[AssimilationPlot Instrumentality]] where Kihl finds himself facing a metaphorical inquest of sorts where he justifies his plans to force ''human evolution'' the way he did and thus he only has to head towards the ''city'' which represents the final goal he has longed for. The twist is [[spoiler: that the very qualities he has in such rich quantities prevent him from ever being able to enter [[AssimilationPlot Instrumentality]], leaving him alone forever.]] He took the ironic situation [[SarcasmMode quite]] [[AndIMustScream well.]]

* One example of a combined Ironic Hell and SelfInflictedHell is in ''Film/WhatDreamsMayCome'', clearly based on Dante. The protagonist's wife committed suicide, and reflecting the selfish nature of the act, she is essentially trapped in a state of depression, unable to connect with others. Perhaps even more ironic, for the protagonist, [[spoiler: he would rather be trapped in her Hell than his heaven without her. His doing so, however, makes her hell...[[YouAreWorthHell not]]. Freeing both.]]

* ''Manga/DragonBall'': When Goku returned to the land of the dead during the Buu Saga, he asked King Yemma if Dabura (aka King of Demon Realms) had shown up. King Yemma smugly told Goku that since Dabura was a demon, he'd fit in well in hell; thus Dabura was sent to eternally suffer in peaceful paradise: heaven! Of course, this ignores the last-minute HeelFaceTurn Dabura made, and a later episode showed that it really wasn't much of a punishment at all. Of course, that episode was Filler, so who cares?
