** Note that the afterlife in ''Manga/DeathNote'' is actually [[spoiler:CessationOfExistence]], as per WordOfGod and the final chapter/episode. The novel was written by a different person than the manga, and thus is probably noncanon.

* In Music/WeirdAlYankovic's "Everything You Know Is Wrong," the singer ends up in Heaven, where St. Peter gives him "the room next to the noisy ice machine - for all eternity."

* In Music/WeirdAlYankovic's "Everything You Know Is Wrong," the singer ends up in Heaven, where St. Peter gives him "the room next to the noisy ice machine - for all eternity."" This is ''after'' the singer barely avoids being turned down for violating the dress code with his Nehru jacket.

->'''Zane''': There are ''golf carts'' in the afterlife. 'horrible little things--sound like a mosquito farting down a straw. "To allow employees a hasty transfer betwixt departments." S'what the handbook says. "Hasty." "Betwixt." This on a plane of existence conceptually untroubled by the likes of time 'n space. Stupid, innit? I popped one open, once. ''No engine''--only this swirly lightshow bollocks made of mandelbrot patterns and bloody eighth dimensional cosmohedrons--same as everything. Tells you a lot about the mind that runs this place, that. I mean, think about it--he could've made bleeding' ferraris. Or chariots, if you like. Laser-spaffin' nukecopters, fuckin' seraphim made of smoke 'n bile. He chose ''golf carts.'' My name's Bastard Zane. I hate it here.

* The graphic novel ''Numbercruncher'' features the In-Between, run by God, or rather, the Divine Calculator. It's not exactly an afterlife per se, since most souls go through Recirculation (reincarnation) for any sins that add negative values to their particular number. However, [[DealWithTheDevil signing a contract with the Divine Calculator]] means that when you die again, you have to work at the Karmic Accountancy in the In-Between until someone signs a contract and replaces you. Yes, Karmic Accountancy; god's domain is an office job.

* In Kevin Guilfoile's web mystery series, [[http://www.themorningnews.org/article/madalyn-murray-ohair-in-hell Madalyn Murray O’Hair in Hell]], the part of Hell Madalyn lives in (the City of Dis) resembles a dingy city where movies are dubbed into languages no one can understand and the only thing on television are shows from 1978. Originally it was part of a FireAndBrimstoneHell, but the residents made some tentative improvements and, when no one punished them for doing this, they began renovating Hell so that it eventually resembled a somewhat tolerable CrapsackWorld.

* In Comicbook/SecretSix, Purgatory looks like an abandoned shopping mall. Sounds about right.
