* ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm'' plays with this trope in conjunction to a certain event at '''Legion''' where King Varian Wrynn died in a HeroicSacrifice early in the expansion. His reveal trailer imply that the Nexus is his afterlife where he will fight to his warrior spirit's content.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', Sovngarde is the WarriorHeaven where all heroic [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Nords]] ascend to upon death, and it fits the bill, essentially being a giant {{expy}} of Valhalla. The main hall, the Hall of Valor, is a magnificent palace where the glorious dead drink golden mead, feast on massive boars, and battle for sport. Unfortunately [[spoiler: when you go there in ''Skyrim'', Alduin, the dragon god of the end times, has come 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 god Shor and his shield-thane, Tsun.]]

* 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"

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': Variant. The Vorin religion teaches that the demonic Voidbringers forced humanity out of the Tranquiline Halls before recorded history, and that now the afterlife is one long war to reclaim Heaven. Those who lived the greatest lives will join the fight, while everyone else will sleep until the war is won. Spearmen will be able to cause thunder and lightning with their weapons, farmers will be able to grow great fields of spiritual crops with a wave of their hand. Therefore, soldiers are seen as by far the most important profession in life, and Vorin cultures often start pointless wars that aren't seen as a problem since they're important training for the afterlife.

* The Halls of Valor in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'''s ''Legion'' expansion serves as this, with Odyn himself acting as the final boss because he's [[WorthyOpponent suitably impressed by the group coming to claim the Aegis]].

* The second half of ''VideoGame/SuperColumbineMassacreRPG'' combines this with AHellOfATime when Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, the UsefulNotes/{{Columbine}} gunmen, get sent to Hell for their crimes. It's an old-fashioned FireAndBrimstoneHell complete with big, ugly demons straight out of ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' trying to kill them... in other words, it's ''paradise'' for a pair of nihilistic spree killers who were both huge fans of ''Doom'' in life. By the time they're through, Satan himself declares the two to be {{Worthy Opponents}} and makes them his minions.

[[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.
