* In a Christmas special of ''Radio/OldHarrysGame'', Satan discovers that an innocent woman has been mistakenly sent to Hell ''after'' dying decades before her time. He goes looking for Death to remedy this, only to learn that Death has "modernised" the system by recruiting various regional Deaths, and the only one he can find has a pronounced Welsh accent.

* The Grim Reaper is commonly depicted on the Death card of [[TarotMotifs Tarot decks]] (although it represents change rather than death as the end of all things, provided it's face-up. If it's face-down however it really means GameOver).[[note]]It has to be said that the ''really'' unlucky cards, the ones which ''really do'' have a strong association with extreme misfortune and even physical death, are in the Minor Arcana, the suit cards. The Nine of Swords is the one to avoid. Its depiction in several suits is of a corpse floating face-down in a river with nine daggers sticking out of its back, which conveys the general underlying theme. Looked at positively, in the full Tarot you only have a one-in-seventy-six chance of drawing this card as opposed to the one-in-twenty-two of getting Death from the Major Arcana only. Of course tyou couyld draw Death crossed by the Nine of Swords, which might be interpreted as meaning "do not make any long-term plans or commtments as there really isn't much point". [[/note]]
