[[FluffyCloudHeaven Sitting around all eternity playing a harp]] not your idea of paradise? [[MundaneAfterlife Reality without the bad parts]] sound a bit... dull? Some cultures, particularly of the ProudWarriorRace variety, inspire their warriors with stories of a different afterlife. Those who fall in battle will go to a land of eternal, [[WarIsGlorious glorious war]], their days spent fighting each other in [[FriendlyEnemy friendly combat]] and their nights spent feasting, with any who fell earlier [[DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist being resurrected at the day's end]].

* The Viking heaven of Valhalla is seen in one book of ''Literature/{Everworld}''. It's depicted as an enormous raucous hall, full of tens of thousands of vikings feasting and fighting. The main characters see it after Valkyries appear and ''tear open the sky to reveal it''. The characters then proceed to teach the vikings their "Viking battle song" and a near-riot of fun breaks out.

* In ''Shin Manga/GetterRobo Armageddon'', [[spoiler:after cutting Jupiter in half, Ryoma, Hayato and Benkei are sucked into a giant space vagina where they will spend all eternity fighting alongside parallel reality versions of themselves against aliens who gain power by sucking up god's evolutionary divine energy.]] [[spoiler: In ''New Getter Robo'', that Ryoma seems to end up there, too]]. Fans oftentimes refer to this as "Getter Valhalla", some going so far as to posit that it was created by the actions of other versions of the same characters in the other various Getter Robo manga and {{OVA}}s.

* In RuneScape, the not-so-intelligent goblins think they will go to their ancestral homeland Yu'Biusk upon death in combat, where they will fight eachother for all eternity. In the end, it turns out that Bandos, god of war and the one who brought them to Gielinor, has lied to them. Yu'Biusk is nothing but a toxic wasteland, devestated by war since millenia.

* Quake III Arena's [[AllThereInTheManual background story]] indicate player are fighting in Arena Eternal, a extradimensional structure created by an super advanced alien race called [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien Vadrigar]]. They populated the Arena Eternal with the greatest warriors in all of time and space whom they kidnap at the split moment before they die a heroic death, for entertainment. It's basically a SF version of Valhalla.

* The ancient Taung (predecessors of the Mandalorians) of the StarWarsExpandedUniverse had a belief that the God of Chaos and the God of Order would enlist warriors who came to their hall to their armies who battled constantly against one another over what would rule the mortal world at any given time. While the Mandalorians of the game and film eras are too pragmatic to believe in such a thing, the remnants of this belief still pop up from time to time, particularly in their language, particularly that a warrior is never dead, just "marching far away"
