** The Redguards, a [[ScaryBlackMan dark-skinned]] ProudWarriorRace with a particular cultural affinity for [[MasterSwordsman swords and swordplay]], has their own version in the Far Shores. According to ancient Yokudan myth ({{Precursors}} ancestors]] of the Redguards]], Satakal, the serpentine "God of Everything", eats itself over and over, [[BeastOfTheApocalypse periodically consuming all of creation]]. By "moving at strange angles" to stride between "worldskins", a process known as the "Walkabout", the strongest of the spirits learned to bypass this cycle of destruction. Following the guidance of Ruptga, or "Tall Papa," the [[TopGod chief deity]] of the Yokudan pantheon, weaker spirits (like those of Men) are able to perform the Walkabout to the Far Shores as well. There, they are safe until Satakal has passed and a new worldskin has emerged. In the Far Shores, there is no hunger or thirst, and there are plenty of martial challenges to keep Redguard warrior spirits engaged and entertained.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', Sovngarde is the desired afterlife of the Nords, a ProudWarriorRace of HornyVikings with BloodKnight, BoisterousBruiser, and even some HonorBeforeReason traits. The idea was passed down to them from their [[{{Precursors}} ancestors]], the ancient Atmorans, who were very much a BarbarianTribe race with some proto-[[HornyVikings Horny Viking]] traits (such as being [[BornUnderTheSail master shipbuilders and sailors]] despite having never discovered agriculture or developing their own written language). In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', you get the opportunity to visit Sovngarde and it really fits the bill. The main hall, the Hall of Valor, is a magnificent longhouse-style palace where the glorious dead drink golden mead, feast on massive boars, battle for sport, and swap stories of their glories on the battlefield. Unfortunately, [[spoiler: your visit is due to Alduin, the draconic BeastOfTheApocalypse, entering Sovngarde to feed on the souls of newly dead warriors for sustenance, effectively turning Sovngarde into a Warrior ''Hell''. Only the Hall of Valor is safe, due to protection from the Nordic God Shor and his shield-thane and fellow Nordic God, Tsun.]] Until the situation is resolved, no new warrior souls may enter the Hall of Valor.

* In ''Shin Manga/GetterRobo Armageddon'', [[spoiler: [[ItMakesSenseInContext 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.
