* ''AmericanDad'' had an episode parodying ''TheCoven'', where Steve, Barry, Snot and Toshi get witch powers after reading a magic tome, and Steve eventually turns evil, forcing the others to fight him in the climax, with Barry being killed in the process. Agreeing to turn back time to before they had their powers to bring Barry back to life, things go back to the way they were... until Barry talks about what it was like being dead, in a very matter-of-fact way.

* [[{{Animaniacs}} The Warner Brothers (and sister)]] of all people ends up in one of these, when Wakko dies after eating too many meatballs in an eating contest in Sweden, and is claimed by The Grim Reaper from ''TheSeventhSeal''. Mind you, the Warners dont stick around for long.

* In ''PropositionPlayer'', Limbo is a bleak, empty plain shrouded in darkness that serves as a dumping ground for souls who cannot find their way into a proper afterlife (although they can interact and has formed communities); the Christian God was apparently known for ousting other pantheons and dumping any afterlifers that didn't measure up to His standards straight into Limbo. Moloch and Anubis realize that for an up-and-rising deity who isn't too picky (like the protagonist, Andy), Limbo is a veritable goldmine of spiritual collateral. (Basically, the more souls you own, the more powerful you become.) [[spoiler:In the end, their new pantheon manages to claim ownership and patronage of the entire population, putting them seveal magnitudes above even God Himself.]]
* [[ComicBook/{{Hellblazer}} John Constantine]] ran across a fallen angel turned EldritchAbomination ruling over one of these. Expressly stated to be [[UpToEleven worse than Hell]], it was a grey waste full of the souls of suicides, lining up to be devoured by the creature inhabiting that plane.
* In a [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Disney Ducks comic book]] that's a parody/adaptation of ''Literature/MobyDick'', the main characters are at one point swallowed by the white whale, Pinocchio style. Since at first it's very dark inside the whale's belly, one of the characters, not realizing that he's still alive — though inside the whale —:
--> '''Ismael''': What… what happened ? So ''that''[='s=] the afterlife? An infinite empty darkness?

* In ''ComicBook/BatmanVampire'', {{Dracula}} claims this is the case, and that between death and reawakening as a vampire is just blackness. Then again, this IS a setting with vampires, werewolves and werecats so who knows what the truth is. Batman certainly cant tell, since he wasnt vampirized through regular means.
** Horrifyingly played straight for vampires who are staked but who's heads are not cut off - they're trapped in a FateWorseThanDeath, stuck in a kind of twilight nightmare state in their own decaying bodies, aware only of a bloodlust they have no way of quenching. They can be revived from this state by removing the stake.

--> '''Barry''': By the way, I forgot to tell you. When you die, there's nothing, it's just a total cessatation of existance. (Not the trope of the same name, since he was apparently aware while dead).

** Barry's comments may not hold true, however, since within the ''American Dad'' universe, God, Heaven and Hell have all been depicted as very real.

Added DiffLines:

* Heavily implied to be the case in ''Franchise/TheWitcher'' through several quests that deal with ghosts, spirits and corpses brought back to the world of the living. They express little to no knowledge of what lies beyond, and refer to their resurrection as "waking up". One quest however which deals with the cursed spirit of a warrior from [[HornyVikings Skellige]] suggests that there may be a sort of Valhalla, as the spirit claims to hear laughter and cheering and the clanking of chalices as he passes over.
