: The traditional
portrayal of Hell
as a fiery place of eternal torment.
- Straight: Bob goes to Hell, and is thrown into a lake of molten lava.
- Exaggerated: Then fished out, Impaled with Extreme Prejudice, skinned, dunked back in the lava pit, thrown into sulfuric acid, and given an atomic wedgie.
- Downplayed: The torment is not eternal, although it may last for a long time and/or feel like eternity.
- Justified: Hell takes on A Form You Are Comfortable With... OK, Comfortable isn't the right word, more like Uncomfortable With.
- Subverted: Bob goes to Hell, but it's not so bad.
- Double Subverted: It's an Ironic Hell
- Zig Zagged: ???
- Bob goes to Heaven.
- The afterlife Bob goes to is just a generic world of the dead where everyone ends up.
- Or, there is no afterlife, just The Nothing After Death.
- Enforced: The traditional view of Hell, that is probably familiar to the audience.
- Lampshaded: "...To Hell, where you will drink naught but burning lava and eat naught but burning coals..."
- Invoked: ???
- Exploited: ???
- Defied: ???
- Discussed: "So... If I'm bad, I get thrown into a volcano?
- Conversed: "Actually, the whole fire and brimstone thing is Word of Dante."
