* 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"

* In NorseMythology, it's believed that half the dead in battle that are chosen by {{Valkyries}} go to Valhöll (or Valhalla), Odin's hall. Valhöll is an incredibly vast, majestic hall located in Ásgarðr/Asgard. Odin is, of course, a God of [[TheBerserker war]], [[WarriorPoet poetry]], wisdom, and magic. The other half would go to Freyja's hall, Sessrúmnir. Freyja being, of course, a Goddess of fertility, beauty, and [[LadyOfWar war]]. In Odin's hall, warriors feast all night and train all day for [[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Rag]][[FinalBattle narök]].

* In the ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' episode "Jack and the Lava Monster", Jack is challenged by a lava monster who built a labyrinth of such lethal hazards that only the mightiest warriors would survive to reach him. As it turns out, he is actually a Viking warrior imprisoned in a body of stone by Aku, and seeks to die in honorable combat, as that is the only way one can gain acceptance into Valhalla. (Jack complies, and he gets his wish. The episode ends with the warrior - in his original, young human form - looking down from Valhalla as Jack walks away.)

* 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.]]
