->''"It's time you all learned that Heaven can be a Hell of a place!"''
-->-- '''Creator/BenjaminFranklin''', ''VideoGame/TheSimpsonsGame''

A bonus level or [[BonusDungeon dungeon]] where the characters get to slaughter their way through {{Heaven}}, and possibly culminating in [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu punching out]] [[GodIsEvil God]].

Not to be confused with FluffyCloudHeaven, which only sometimes overlaps with this. If TheLegionsOfHell are running wild here, it's HellInvadesHeaven.

Compare and contrast PlanetHeck.

[[folder: Action Games ]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Bomberman}} 64'' had the secret final level called Rainbow Palace that fits the FluffyCloudHeaven motif, and had relaxing music that severely clashed with how unforgiving some of the puzzles were.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'', beating the 21 Alfheim challenges (which are located in heaven) rewards you with… a massive Alfheim challenge where you have to go through 50 waves of enemies, many of them really brutal, with a progressively increasing difficulty setting (from Normal at the beginning to HarderThanHard at the end) and one BonusBoss. The soft and dreamy music that plays between the waves does little to reassure the player. Oh, and you can't use healing items. Good luck.

[[folder: Fighting Games ]]

* ''VideoGame/SNKVsCapcomSVCChaos'' has VideoGame/{{Athena}} as a bonus boss (as well as [[VideoGame/GhostsNGoblins Red Arremer]] as a counterpart). Take a wild guess at where the battle takes place.

[[folder: Platform Games ]]

* In the arcade version of ''VideoGame/TheNewZealandStory'', when you lose your last life in the later stages of the game, Tiki will reappear in the stage Heaven. There are different layout Heavens based on when you died, but they're all rather difficult stages. If you make your way all to the right, you meet up with the Goddess and pass on to the afterlife in a sort of TheManyDeathsOfYou fashion epilogue (I think...).
** [[spoiler: ''"Tiki has met the Goddess and now went into a long sleep in the warm sunlight. But the Heavens had got an exit to the underworld."'']]
*** What's awesome is that there is a secret route in each Heaven leading back to the game proper: you can escape Heaven and shrug off death itself through sheer force of will! That's how [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome awesome]] [[LikeABadassOutOfHell little Tiki]] is!
* ''VideoGame/TheSimpsonsGame'' had the family traveling to Heaven to talk to God about why everyone and everything wants to destroy Springfield, beating up Shakespeare and Benjamin Franklin along the way. They then play a DDR-style game where you coordinate heavenly versions of baddies from previous levels to the beat of "Rock You Like A Hurricane". Also, God is a giant video game nerd who spends all his time playing the super-immersive Planet Earth videogame.
* ''Gimmick!''
* The underrated CD-i title ''The Apprentice'' sort of plays it straight in the form of a dream taking place in FluffyCloudHeaven, which you get to play every time you clear a tower and defeat its respective boss. It's a time attack stage where you must race your way to the very top of heaven by jumping on springs, all the while collecting all the letters that spell "MAGIC" to receive a buttload of extra bonus points.
* The coin heaven areas in the ''SuperMarioBros'' series.
* In VideoGame/SonicRoboBlast2, [[spoiler:this area is a literal bonus level. It's also a MarathonLevel, being a combination of four levels with the same theme from a popular GameMod.]]
* ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'' manages to [[HailfirePeaks combine]] this with PlanetHeck in Chapter 7. You start in the "Underwhere" (hell) and climb up to the "Overthere" (heaven) throughout the course of the chapter.

* The Astral Plane in ''NetHack''.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Role Playing Games ]]

* There's an indie game series called ''Legion Saga'', at the end of which the main villain turns out to be [[GodIsEvil God himself]], so the heroes and their army have to invade heaven.
* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' had one as a later level, based on [[spoiler:Nanako]]'s mindset. Although the level ''is'' required for the story, afterward in a [[NewGamePlus second playthrough]], the top floor (and you'll have to walk back up there normally) holds the resident BonusBoss on the last day: [[spoiler:Margaret]], assuming certain... ''conditions'' are met.
* The GameBoyAdvance and PSP ports of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII'' let you take on heaven with the characters who had died in the main story after you beat the game. [[spoiler: They end up meeting the Emperor, who explains that the guy who took over Hell is actually the evil half of his soul. Then it turns out that his "better half" is ''still evil'', and you have to stop him from taking over Heaven as well.]]
* The PS2 game ''Champions of Norrath: Return to Arms'' has you hack your way through heaven and hell. Apparently, the difference between the two is largely cosmetic.
* In the first ''[[DolledUpInstallment Final Fantasy Legend]]'' your characters have to [[spoiler: fight the Creator in his own heaven]]. The ''second'' game also has this to a lesser extent: [[spoiler: Odin's world looks like the white puffy version of heaven before he forces you to kill him in it.]]
* Not a BonusDungeon, but in ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' you do end up getting taken to heaven. And you have to escape. And it's [[Awesome/VideoGameLevels part of the game's Crowning Level of Awesome]].
* ''ValkyrieProfile'' has the Seraphic Gate, a bonus dungeon you can complete only after going through Hard mode to find eight special items. The most powerful bosses await there, including [[spoiler:Gabriel Celeste and Iseria Queen]].
* The [[spoiler:FinalDungeon]] to ''DigitalDevilSaga'' can be interpreted this way.
* Not a bonus level, and definitely a weird looking heaven, but the Great Crystal in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' sort of qualifies, especially since it has a huge, [[ThatOneBoss next to impossible]] light based boss at the top.
** The boss is an angel too.
* Not quite a bonus level either, but ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' had the Island Closest to Heaven. It doesn't actually seem to involve proximity to heaven, except by way of being crammed from shore to shore with the most dangerous monsters of the game.
** For most people (those without [=GFs=] and massive Junction bonuses), if they're standing on that island they probably ''will'' be seeing the afterlife very soon...
** There's also an island closest to hell. Exact same thing. There is a bonus to being here, though. All the best spells in the game (except [[spoiler:Apocalypse]]) are here.
* The Rainbow Cloud from ''VideoGame/PokemonSnap'' has you trying to get a picture of [[BonusBoss Mew.]] [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin It is also a]] FluffyCloudHeaven.
* Players of ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiII'' who go for the Neutral or Chaos path will get to sneak into the new Garden of Eden in disguise, then slaughter their way through ranks of archangels and the spiritual manifestations of aspects of the most Holy One. At the end of the line, you fight The Lord Himself. Needless to say, it's a VERY tough fight. The scenery is devoid of fluffy clouds, though - most is sterile white walls, and the last area is a platform in a featureless void.
** Of course, since this is the heaven of a god who has [[spoiler: pretty much gone insane and is no better than the devil himself by this point, and when the player confronts him, says that he will kill the player and torture him in hell forever]], that may go a long ways in explain why everything seems so cold and empty...

[[folder: Sports Games ]]

* ''TonyHawksProSkater 2'' actually features a level called Skate Heaven, which is a gigantic level with only one real hazard, and even begins with a booming voice proclaiming "Skate on, my son."

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Tabletop Games ]]

* There's a fan-made Heaven sourcebook for the tabletop RPG ''{{Kult}}''. Given that God is missing and His replacement is [[GodIsEvil evil]], this makes sense.
* In the Time of Judgment sourcebook for the ''TabletopGame/OldWorldOfDarkness'' that detailed the ApocalypseHow of the EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt for each game line, none of the Demon: The Fallen endings specifically included the angels of heaven returning to Earth to redeem or destroy the demons, but it literally had bonus rules for making and running angels as allies or (more likely) antagonists for player characters if a Storyteller wished to do so.
* Depending on how the campaign goes (and whose side they're on), it is perfectly reasonable for high-Essence characters in ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' to slaughter their way through [[{{Heaven}} Yu-Shan]], culminating in an epic battle with the Unconquered Sun himself.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Turn Based Strategy ]]

* ''VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness''. Makes sense, considering the main characters are mostly demons. Notably, it's not actually a bonus level, but rather the [[VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon finale]]. Earth, on the other hand, does show up as a bonus level.
** Later revisited in ''VideoGame/Disgaea3AbsenceOfJustice'' in Raspberyl mode.
* You can have a Bonus ''ending'' of heaven in ''YggdraUnion'', as the whole killing God is implied when Yggdra kills Marietta.
