*** Later further subverted in favour of a more traditional FluffyCloudHeaven / FireAndBrimstoneHell dichotomy, seemingly visited by [[spoiler: Scout and Medic respectively]] in "The Naked and the Dead". Suffice it to say that death is complicated in Team Fortress 2.

* [[{{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.
--> '''Yakko''': All is strange and vague...
--> '''Dot''': Are we dead?
--> '''Yakko''': Or is this {{Ohio}}?
*
--> '''Yakko''': Hey Wakko, whats it like being dead?
--> '''Wakko''': Pretty boring, I already hummed all the songs I know.

* In ''Literature/TheReader2016'', most people in the book's setting believe in this, and that the only way a soul carries on is by telling their stories.

* ''{{Nasuverse}}'': The concept of [[AkashicRecords The Origin]] is fundamentally similar to this, expounded on by ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai''. After death, souls just exist in the Origin, waiting to be recycled.

** King's short story "[[Literature/SkeletonCrew The Jaunt]]" is about a teleportation machine which transports the body instantly from one location to another, but consciousness takes what seems like millions of years to get there. For this reason, anyone who uses it has to be rendered unconscious before teleportation. They found out the hard way by offering a convicted murderer his freedom in exchange for testing it after it killed a lab rat; he managed to say "it's eternity in there" before dying of a heart attack. A man disposed of his wife by pushing her in with no destination; his defense at his murder trial was that she wasn't actually ''dead'', but the jury thought that was actually ''worse''. The Mafia used it as a "Jimmy Hoffa" machine, but their victims had the considerable fortune of already being dead.

* 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).]]
