* 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.

* In ''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.

* The Turkey Farm in KurtVonnegut's ''Slapstick''. Vonnegut also referred to something similar to this in ''SlaughterhouseFive'', where the point in time where Billy Pilgrim experiences death is presented as nothing but violet light and a hum.

** 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.

* ''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.
--> '''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).

* ''Series/IronFist2017'': After the resurrected Harold Meachum kills his assistant Kyle in a random outburst, he says to the corpse, "It's okay. I've been where you're going. It's not so bad. It's just... nothingness." In a later episode, Harold elaborates to Joy on what it was like for him in between his death from cancer and his resurrection by the Hand.

*** 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.
