* Invoked for the SpaceWolves of ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'': the native tribes of Fenris are forever fighting among each other at a pre-Renaissance level, and believe that dying in battle leads to them being taken into the sky where they will fight forever in the company of their ancestors and [[GodEmperor the Allfather]]. What actually happens is that the Wolf Priests select the not-quite dead warriors and bring them to the Fang, where they begin the long process that turns them into SpaceMarines, and for the survivors, well, an eternity of fighting. No word on what the SpaceWolves believe happens when ''they'' die.

* ''TheFabulousFurryFreakBrothers'' - Norbert the Nark sneaks into the Freaks' apartment looking for drugs. He cuts open their inflatable sofa, which was filled from their nitrous oxide tank. He gets a big whiff and hallucinates that he's in Heaven, and blissfully decides he doesn't need his gun or his clothes. He's later seen skipping naked down the street, and later at the police station can't remember a thing.

** In ''Discworld/WyrdSisters'', after [[spoiler:Felmet]] finally goes off the deep end, he runs around convinced he's dead, to the confusion of everyone else present (including Death). He even goes around in a bedsheet as Death keeps trying to convince that he's not dead, even when standing on one of the castle battlements. [[spoiler:When he falls, however, Death is waiting at the bottom, for real this time]].
** Also in ''Wyrd Sisters'', the Fool gets stabbed by a dagger, and Margrat clutches him to her bosom in grief. When she realises it was a fake dagger, she asks him if he's dead, to which he replies "I think I must be. I think I'm in paradise."

* In ''Film/{{Servitude}}'', Godfrey passes out drunk and awakens with Josh hovering over him. He thinks Josh to be Jesus.
* In ''Film/TheFriscoKid'', Rabbi Avram (Gene Wilder) passes out after having too many berries at an Indian Bonfire, even though Tommy (Harrison Ford), his gunslinger companion, tells him to ease off. He awakes in a small room, attended by a silent figure in robes, with a large cross on the wall. When he starts to panic, thinking he died, Tommy shows up and tells him that he was brought to a local monastery for help.
* In ''Film/NeverWeaken'' Harold Lloyd, thinking he just committed suicide by way of rigging the trigger of a gun to pull with a string when a door is opened, assumes he's gone to heaven when he opens his eyes and sees an angel. Turns out it's just a statue, and his chair was whisked away by a steel construction girder leaving him dangling hundreds of feet in the air.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'', Clippy the robot is dismantled to prevent him carrying out a plot for world domination ordered by Mr Kornada. When he is reactivated, he believes that he has died and gone to an afterlife, partly because he's in a WhiteVoidRoom (an electronically isolated secure room, to contain any hostile actions he might take before matters get straightened out) and the first person he sees is his rightful owner, who Kornada had convinced him was dead so that he would accept Kornada's orders.

* In ''WesternAnimation/HappyFeet'', Mumble ends up trying to chase down a fishing boat in order to ask the "[[HumansAreCthulhu aliens]]" why they're taking the penguins' fish. Exhausted, he washes up on an Australian shore and is put into a penguin exhibit. He wakes up in a strangely quiet and bright area with other penguins walking around in a mindless state. He asks the nearest one, who's staring blankly into nothingness, where he is. The penguin tells him "You're in Heaven, [[ASpaceOdyssey Dave]]". Then Mumble walks into a [[SomeKindOfForceField glass wall]] and tries to take a swim, only to see strange giants looking at him.

* In CrisisCore, Zack mistakes Aerith for "an angel?" after he wakes up flat on his back in her flowers. In fairness, his last memory ''was'' of him falling a fair distance from Plate-top, and hitting her Church's roof (and going straight through it).
