* 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 fallen warriors 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 [[OutgrownSuchSillySuperstitions too pragmatic to believe in gods]], the remnants of this belief still pop up from time to time, particularly in their language. A true Mandalorian warrior is never dead, just "marching far away".

** It was actually just the future.



* In ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', it's implied that Madoka created one of these after she became a god and AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence; she takes the souls of dying magical girls there before they witch out.

* In ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', it's implied that Madoka created one of these after she became a god and AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence; she takes the souls of dying magical girls there before they witch out. Although, it is unlikely that there is any fighting going on there, ''Rebellion'' implies that at least some of them fight on her behalf.



* ''Franchise/TheFlash'' and other speedsters in ''Franchise/TheDCU'' live on in the ''Speed Force'' after they die.



* Is it any surprise that [[Franchise/StarTrek Klingon]] heaven, Sto'Vo'Kor, is described as this? Traditionally, when a Klingon dies in combat, any other Klingons who witness his death (including the one who killed him, if he is a Klingon and he has a chance to do so) howl to the sky to inform Sto'Vo'Kor that a warrior is about to arrive.
** The best part is that their belief system not only features this, it says they ''set it up themselves'', after ''[[KlingonPromotion killing off their gods]]''.

* The Eye of Terror/Realm of Chaos of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', though it's perhaps more of a [[HellIsWar Warrior]] ''[[HellIsWar Hell]]''.
** For the Chaos Space Marines and the Orks, it's certainly heaven. The only thing better than fighting there, is fighting the Imperium in real-space.
*** Played straight also by the Orks, naturally. The Imperial world of [[MeaningfulName Armageddon]] is presently in a state of constant warfare between the Orks and the Imperium, and is thus seen as a type of Warrior Heaven by nearby Orks, who flock to it whenever possible. In a more literal example, a Warboss named Tuska fought his way into the Eye of Terror after acquiring a taste for killing Warp-spawned abominations and wound up stranded on a Daemon World, trapped in an eternal battle where the fallen auto-revive each day. Orks being Orks, what would be hell for any unfortunate Imperial Guardsman is pretty much Orky paradise. "Told yer I knew where da best fightin' woz."

* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'': an alien from a MartyrdomCulture is hired by Rick to kill him honorably so that he can get into their heaven. Morty offhandedly mentions that it must be nice to have a proof that there is such a heaven, which frightens the warrior, who has never received any proof. He runs out of the restaurant they're in and is hit by a car, and immediately dragged down to Warrior Hell for not dying honorably. The whole incident is bad enough that Morty wipes his memory of it.

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': With Iceland and Norway having gone back to worshipping the Norse pantheon and one of its worshippers in the main cast being a BloodKnight, Valhalla could only go so long without getting a mention.

** It's somewhat telling that [[DirtyCoward Duras]] didn't get this treatment when [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge Worf killed him]], even from his own men (at least, in front of Worf and Picard). Worf, of course, wasn't about to perform the ritual as he knew [[TreacheryCoverUp Duras]] was going to [[{{Hell}} Gre'thor]] anyway.
