* In [[Creator/MarkMillar Mark Millar's]] ''ComicBook/{{Reborn}}'', good people who die are reborn in a fantasy world called ''Adystria'' while evil people are sent to the Dark Lands. The two factions battle for all eternity.



** 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.

** The [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orcs]] have one known as the Ashen Forge. It is part of the [[EldritchLocation Daedric realm]] of Malacath, [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of the [[AllTheOtherReindeer Spurned and Ostracized]] and patron deity of the Orcs, known as the Ashpit. It is also said that the Ashpit stretches endlessly across the planes, extending even behind the stars to [[SpiritWorld Aetherius]], granting access to every worthy Orc who crosses from this life into the next. Entering it brings immortality, abundant food and drink, and of course, [[ProudWarriorRace many great battles]]. It is said that every Orc is a chief, every chief has a thousand wives, and every wife has a thousand slaves to cater to their every need.

** 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.

Contrast HellIsWar, where a violent afterlife is a form of punishment. Of course, either can be interpreted as the other according on inidividual taste; see AHellOfATime and AHellOfAHeaven.

* In ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'', a central belief of the War Boys is that those who die in battle while shiny and chrome will be reborn to ride eternally on the highways of Valhalla. This makes a NotQuiteDead War Boy ''especially'' [[SuicideAttack dangerous]].

* 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.
