* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': [[spoiler:Crowley the Demon, when he becomes King of Hell]] changes Hell from fire and brimstone, to an eternal waiting room.
** It's actually worse than that. The damned are condemned to wait in a ''queue'' that stretches on forever, slowly moving forward one soul at a time, only to discover when they get to the front, they're at the back of the line again.

His reason for making this change was because he noticed that a good portion of people sent to Hell were masochists who were TooKinkyToTorture with the line again.traditional methods, but ''nobody'' likes waiting in line.

* In the film ''Liliom'' (and the Hungarian play it's based on), the eponymous character discovers after his suicide that Heaven is exactly like the police station he was in earlier in the film, from his treatment by the man at the desk to the sign on the wall that says "No Spitting".

* ''Inverted'' in ''Manga/{{Amakusa1637}}''. At one point, the locals ask the time-traveling protagonists to describe the "Heaven" they believe they come from. When the protagonists comply, they are themselves shocked and moved when they realize the modern society they describe - one of electric light and heating, religious tolerance, rule of law, and ample food - ''is'', in fact, Heaven for the [[CrapsackWorld medieval peasants]]. A paradise that they'd been taking for granted.

** 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.
