* The ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' setting ''{{Eberron}}'' has an afterlife plane, Dolurrh, like this; the souls within even fade away eventually. Most religions have to do with avoiding it (the Silver Flame claims that its god created a paradaisical afterlife) or having faith that something comes after it. The sourcebook notes it's not just or unjust, good or evil: it just is.

** Ransom also comes to doubt Weston's account--it's possible that the demon was simply imitating Weston in an attempt to discourage Ransom. [[spoiler:Given that "Weston" refers to Perelandra as "Perelandra" instead of "Venus"...]]

*** And "Old Wounds" gives us a look at [[FluffyCloudHeaven Heaven]], where [[spoiler:Sniper's parents are]]. That one may have been a hallucination, though.

* ''WebVideo/TheSagaOfBiorn'': This is the fate that the old Viking warrior Biorn wants to avoid, determined to die in glorious battle and go to [[WarriorHeaven Valhalla]] rather than die of old age and go to the blank, featureless Helheim, where the souls of the dead stand around doing absolutely nothing, bored out of their minds. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, the nuns he saved during the battle that killed him give him a Christian burial, which acts as a PostMortemConversion and sends him to FluffyCloudHeaven instead... [[HellOfAHeaven which is exactly like Helheim]] except fluffier and cloudier (and full of nuns).]]

* In ''Webcomic/MysteryBabylon'', Red saved Kick Girl from getting sucked into the Pit along with every other demon on Earth by removing her Mark of the Beast. As a consequence of this, however, if she dies by non-mortal means before earning a new Mark, her soul will go to an infinite void rather than to Heaven or Hell. Kick Girl has had nightmares about this, and regards it as a worse fate than going to Hell.

* In ''Literature/{{Paprika}}'', death is symbolized as a black hole if you're in the dying person's mind. And due to the MacGuffin's [[spoiler:{{Instrumentality}}]] power, things get worse from there.
