* In ''Series/OnceUponATime'' the Underworld is a sort of MundaneAfterlife where the recently dead go to sort out their unfinished business before passing on to their final destination, and it's ruled by Hades, who doesn't like his subjects leaving.

* In Myth/GreekMythology, the Underworld is Hades, the realm of the god of the same name. Depending on their conduct in life, the dead can end up in the Elysian Fields, which are basically paradise, in the Fields of Asphodel, where they just sort of...hang out, or Tartarus, whose inmates are tortured for all eternity for crimes against the gods.
