* The Literature/{{Cosmere}} has the Beyond, where souls get pulled after death after a (usually) brief time in the Cognitive Realm. Even the resident divine beings don't know what lies Beyond and Creator/BrandonSanderson has specifically said he has no plans to reveal anything about it.

* ''ComicBook/{{Azrael}}'': Apparently, this happened to Jean-Paul Valley after he met his end in the final issue of his comic. His last comment before disapearing from the pages of DCComics forever were "It looks just like the earth." And he was ''smiling.''

* In WebVideo/VisionOfEscaflowneAbridged, the deceased Varie describes heaven as what it would be like "if the best orgasm you ever had could last forever." Main character Hitomi finds this description [[VirginityMakesYouStupid less than helpful.]]

* Taken to the extreme in ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'', where afterlife is sort of implied to exist (Mata Nui's soul, for example, started drifting off into it before he recovered), but what it is like is never given any details. The writers have their reasons for this: not wanting to touch on iffy subjects, they purposely avoid talking about it.

* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' this is called "The Pure World" (life is "The Impure World"), and is brought up mostly in reference to Edo Tensei, the jutsu whereby a dead ninja is brought back to life to serve as an enslaved, zombified summon. The last thing any of the ninja remember is the moment of their death, which seems to be part of the "pure" thing. The Pure World may or may not refer to both Heaven and Hell since Zabuza fully expected to arrive in the latter, though in his case thats probably because of DeathEqualsRedemption.
** This could also imply that there is but one afterlife in the Narutoverse, much like Hades or an eternal purgatory.

The Pure World may or may not refer to both Heaven and Hell since Zabuza fully expected to arrive in the latter, though in his case thats that's probably because of DeathEqualsRedemption.
** This could also imply Actually, this kind of afterlife is essentially a ThemeParkVersion of a doctrine of the Pure Land Buddhism, which states that whoever dies, even if they're evil, will be taken to ''Sukhavati'' or the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pure_Land_Buddhism#The_Pure_Land "Pure Land"]], home of the ''Amitabha Buddha'' (the kind of Buddha especially venerated in East Asia), from whom they will further learn how to achieve buddhahood. However, if they're evil, there's a chance that they won't be reincarnated as a ''[[RefusingParadise boddhisatva]]'' the next time they reenter the cycle of life, but as a ''preta'' (hungry ghost).
** Also,
there is but seems to be more than one afterlife in the Narutoverse other than the Pure Land. There's the rather hazy concept of the Shinigami/Death God, which isn't mentioned often except as part of a certain suicidal jutsu that ends with your and your enemy's souls becoming ''[[FateWorseThanDeath trapped inside its belly for eternity]]''. The Shinigami's entire existence, however, essentially implies that AllMythsAreTrue in the Narutoverse, much like Hades since it's a ''very'' alien concept in both Buddhism or an eternal purgatory.
Shintoism (Japan's most-followed religions) and is [[HijackedByJesus probably borrowed from the concept of the Angel of Death in Christianity]] (the fact that its earliest mention is sometime in the 15th century, the time when Christianity first reached Japan, supports this theory).

* Music/DanielAmos: In the short story from the ''Music/{{Doppelganger}}'' liner notes, the narrator briefly has a vision of Heaven, but declines to describe it in any detail--partly because God forbids him, and partly because his words canít do justice to what he saw.

* In the film ''{{Dogma}}'', the demon Azrael is willing to have the entirety of existence erased in order to avoid having to return to Hell. The DVD has since revealed that Azrael was originally given a much more detailed rant about Hell, and would have proceeded to give Bethany (and the audience) a glimpse of it. However, the sequence was not quite completed, and instead, the following message appears:
