** The trope is invoked again in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', where [[spoiler: the Nordic realm of Sovngarde (an expy of Valhalla) ends up being the feeding ground for [[BigBad Alduin]] to feed on the souls of the dead.]]

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allegory_of_the_long_spoons The Allegory of the Long Spoons]] plays with the Trope of Heaven and Hell being NotSoDifferent. The only difference is the attitude of those in either place.

* In ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'', Grandpa Phil was convinced he would die that night, as no man in his family had ever lived past that particular birthday. When he wakes up the next morning to the crowded people, he remarks about how it must be Heaven... until he sees [[LazyBum Oskar]], declaring "Oh no! This must be that other place!"

* This is actually a point in Mormonism. In the afterlife, spirits are sorted into three kingdoms, each divine in their own right, but only the highest Celestial kingdom has the full light and presence of God. Those left in the lowest Telestial kingdom (the Mormon equivalent of Purgatory) are essentially left without much other than the afterlife itself, so despite the divine /appearance/ of the kingdom, it doesn't take long to realize that something will just feel off. Forever.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'''s ShowWithinAShow, ''The Scary Door'', parodies the ''Twilight Zone'' episode above. A man is hit by a car and wakes up in a casino. He gets jackpot and thinks it's heaven. When he hits jackpot the second time, he thinks it's boring and that means he must be in Hell. [[spoiler:He's actually in a plane. [[Recap/TheTwilightZoneS5E123NightmareAt20000Feet And there's a goblin on the wing.]] But nobody will believe him because he's UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler. And Eva Braun is actually a giant fly.]]
** And Bender called it.

* ''The Last Drumpf'' by Creator/IsaacAsimov has the Devil convince God to bring about the end of the world, with everyone dead being resurrected. Since every group has their own idea of the afterlife, the Devil designs it at the greatest common divisor -- nothing but eternal existence. One of the people claims this is heaven, but then another points out that there is nothing beyond Earth, buildings are crumbling, hills are flattening, desires are gone... Soon, there will be nothing but a featureless plain and people. FireAndBrimstoneHell is unworthy of divine imagination; an eternity of nothingness is a different matter.
