* ''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.

* At the end of ''Film/BadGirlsFromValleyHigh'', the two Alphacrony {{Villain Protagonist}}s die and wake up in a luxurious hotel room and are convinced they went to Heaven. Then the school dork shows up, claiming that he committed suicide to be with them and that he will be their roommate for the rest of eternity. He then briefly turns into a demon, prompting the girls to realize where they are and scream.

-->'''Barbara:''' I can't clean anything properly. The vacuum's in the garage and we can't leave the house. Why don't they tell us something? Where are the other dead people? Why is it just you and me?
-->'''Adam:''' [smiling] Maybe this is Heaven.
-->'''Barbara:''' In Heaven there wouldn't be dust on everything.

* Creator/LucasArts' sim ''VideoGame/{{Afterlife}}'' has a "Faux Heaven" as one of the possible Hell's punishments for slothful souls:
-->"Many of the Slothful Damned believe that they deserve to be in Heaven, little realizing that their lazy ways have earned them a place in Hell. For these self-deluded fools, Hell hath created these cheesy replicas of Heaven. They're just like the real Heaven...except that they suck."
* In ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'', the Hunter's Dream is a peaceful, quiet, serene and cozy little house surrounded by flower-lined paths winding between undisturbed graves. It's tended to by [[CoolOldGuy Gehrman]], who teaches new [[HunterOfMonsters Hunters]] the ropes, and [[ArtificialHuman the Plain Doll]], who lives to serve and help you and who offers you nothing but solace, support and kind words. In the grim, dark and horrifying world of ''Bloodborne'', surely this must be a slice of heaven... except, by now, the Hunter's Dream is actually [[spoiler: Gehrman's own IronicHell: As part of his [[DealWithTheDevil agreement with]] [[EldritchAbomination the Moon Presence]], he's stuck doing what he used to love the most; mentoring new Hunters, in the place he used to love the most; his Old Workshop, [[WhoWantsToLiveForever for the rest of eternity]], and it's heavily implied that he has already gone through ''hundreds'' of iterations of [[TheNightThatNeverEnds the night of the hunt]] by the time the game starts... Also, since he has to eventually MercyKill every single Hunter that finds their way to the Dream, lest they'll either GoMadFromTheRevelation, or will be forced to [[SelfSacrificeScheme replace him as the Dream's host]], the only permanent company Gehrman has is a doll in the spitting likeness of the love of his life, Maria... That probably wouldn't have been so bad if the doll, though it [[ReplacementGoldfish looks like Maria, and sounds like Maria,]] [[ExtremeDoormat is nothing like]] [[ActionGirl Maria]], meaning it only serves as a constant reminder of Gehman's [[TheLostLenore Lost Lenore]], as well as the sins and failures of his past... The fact that Gehrman's favorite place in the Hunter's Dream appears to be an alcove in the garden that lets him sit with his back turned to the entire Dream implies that he's grown to utterly loathe everything about it.]]



* Played with (in a "This Isn't Earth" sense) in ''{{VideoGame/Fall From Heaven}}''. Originally, Hell was having problems [[EscapedFromHell with mortals like the Bannor escaping damnation through portals back to Erebus]], so the local god of deception, Esus, created a LotusEaterMachine version of Erebus where [[CrapsackWorld everything was even worse]] than [[WorldHalfEmpty Erebus usually is]], with hopes that would-be escapees would enter, be sent over the DespairEventHorizon, and then return to the more honest hells of their own accord. What happens if someone is GenreSavvy enough to catch onto the ruse is unexplained...

* The Tumblr based comic Floccinaucinihilipilification featured one [[http://floccinaucinihilipilificationa.tumblr.com/post/129225758371 comic]] where the protagonist goes to Hell. At first the protagonist doesn't believe it because it's just a birthday party, until they start singing "Happy Birthday"...in a neverending loop.
