* There's a ''[[TheFarSide Far Side]]'' cartoon that plays with this, and the {{Hellevator}}, by depicting an escalator going up to Heaven and one heading down to Hell. The demon riding the down escalator pies the angel riding up in the face.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/{{Housepets}}'' has the stairway to Heaven, which King and Fox travel because King was given an audience with the head honcho (in this case, Bahamut).

** Notable in that the movie does have an elevator to... some form of the afterlife. (Which looks suspiciously like a boiler room.)

* In ''KeysToTheKingdom'', there's a magical staircase that you can go on that will ''eventually'' take you where you want to go, but with a bunch of seemingly-random 'landings' that consist of various different places, worlds and times. While walking on the staircase once, Suzy Turquoise Blue runs into someone she used to know before she became a Piper's child.
