It's more along the lines of a Sugar Bowl.
** Frieza's personal hell in ''Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF'' qualifies, being a CrapsaccharineWorld filled with fairies frolicking and stuffed animals playing music while the omnicidal tyrant is forced to do nothing but watch the festivities while trapped in a cocoon for all eternity.

* In "I Have What You Need", a story from the Vertigo Comics anthology ''Time Warp'', a candy-maker has a secret recipe that lets people relive the happiest ten minutes of their lives. A sadistic gangster, Elias Yanyo, threatens the candy-man to give him a sample so he can relieve murdering his wife, threatening some other customers in the process. [[spoiler: Then the candy-man reveals that Yanyo is already ''in'' a time loop, and has been for the last twenty years. While the other customers lived through the incident and found happiness, the candy-man was shot in the ensuing scuffle and died a few days later. Since he's the only one who can turn the time-loops on and off, Yanyo has condemned himself to reliving the same ten minutes over and over for all eternity.]]

* ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanAtWorldsEnd'': For Jack Sparrow, the ''Black Pearl'' has always represented the freedom to go anywhere and do as he pleases. InTheDoldrums of Davy Jones' Locker, he has his ship, but there's no sea to sail it on and nowhere to go. Nothing but perfectly flat, white desert in every direction.

* Decidedly surreal version in ''ComicBook/{{Nextwave}}'', in which the punishment for telling your kids to get a proper job is - to be used as a bucket by giant weasels dressed as cheerleaders. No, we don't know what WarrenEllis was taking either. * Used in ''TheFarSide'', when its shown that hell for dogs is to work as mailmen. And that Charlie Parker has to listen to Kenny G. for all eternity. And skiers get cooped up in stifling hot tubs and have to read ski magazines. And a maestro gets introduced to a room full of banjo players... It comes up a lot.

* [[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 a CloudCuckoolander truck driver finding him and taking a shining to him because he had a similar-looking bear when he was a kid]].

* [[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!"''

* A SaturdayNightLive skit featured Music/SimonAndGarfunkel making a deal with the devil in order to become successful. The sketch then jumps ahead to Satan meeting an aged Music/PaulSimon (played by Simon himself) in an elevator to collect his debt. The elevator speaker is playing a [[HellIsThatNoise muzak version of "Mrs. Robinson."]] This is where Satan leaves Paul Simon for all eternity.
