See You in Hell

Go To
Yotsuba wishes you a pleasant journey.note 

"See me in hell cashing in on that see-you-in-hell thing!"
Aesop Rock, "Happy Pillz (feat. Murs)"

A common piece of dialogue just before dying, or more commonly, just before attempting to kill someone (or, in a combination of the two, in a situation where you expect to die and just want them to die too). Usually provokes a creative response, such as: "No thanks, already been there," (sometimes really) "It wouldn't be Hell without you," "Sounds better than being here with you," and so on.

Basically a We Will Meet Again that extends beyond the grave.

Can be played for Tragedy seeing how all the speakers of this line apparently fully expect to end up in a place of eternal torment when they die, though other times it can suggest that the character is a Card-Carrying Villain.

A subtrope of the Pre-Mortem One-Liner. Compare Give My Regards in the Next World and Welcome to Hell, the latter of which is (usually) less literal. Also compare I'm Going to Hell for This, where a character admits their actions will send them to Hell, and Dying Declaration of Hate. Contrast You Are Worth Hell.

As this can sometimes be a Death Trope, unmarked spoilers abound. Beware.

    Anime and Manga 
  • The Captain Harlock movie Arcadia of My Youth. After losing a starship duel with the Arcadia, Harlock's Worthy Opponent suggests that when they meet again in Hell, they should go for a drink together.
  • Seen in Fullmetal Alchemist with Greed's death.
    • Also, one of the most ironic versions of this trope comes into play during King Bradley's fight with Greed and Fu. After getting fatally wounded by Bradley, Fu, quite aware that he's beyond saving, rushes to Bradley to suicide bomb him as a Last Stand. But right before anything else happens, Bradley, without a second's hesitation, raises his sword and cuts the fuses off from the dynamite strapped to Fu's waist, and injuring Fu even further. So, even if Fu was able to be saved, he's not now.
      Fu: I'm taking you straight to Hell with me, Bradley!! YOU BASTAAAAAAAAAAAAR--
      Cue Loud Slash.
    • Subverted almost immediately by Buccaneer, who stabbed Bradley through Fu, ensuring that his sacrifice was not in vain, and dealt the critical blow that would eventually be Bradley's downfall. Buccaneer knows he won't survive the ordeal either, due to Lodged-Blade Recycling.
      Buccaneer: Old man... We'll drag him to hell together.
      Fu: Yes... Thank you...
  • Ricardo, the Badass Normal from El Cazador de la Bruja, sports an extended version: "Let's have a drink in hell, amigo!"
  • The Death Note episode "Execution" uses the phrase, at least in the English dub: "Light...from one murderer to another...I'll see you in Hell."
    • In the English translation of the manga by Viz, he says, "Light, we're both murderers. We'll see each other again in hell."
  • In the final episode of F-Zero: GP Legend, on the brink of their inevitable fate, the badass Captain Falcon boldly claims that he and Black Shadow are both destined for Hell, followed by Falcon delivering a fatal punch to him, which is a part of his immediately-following Heroic Sacrifice.
  • Code Geass:
    Lelouch: Now, let us suffer together... repenting together for all eternity!
    C.C.: I did love you, Mao. I want you to go and wait for me... in C's World.
    Kallen: Send a postcard.
  • Dragon Ball:
    • Vegeta, in the uncut redub of Dragon Ball Z, says this on a few occasions. Usually when he's about to (or seems to) kill an enemy. "See you in hell, Kui." and "See you in hell, Recoome!!" are a few examples.
      • Another Vegeta example in the original Ocean Group dub, when Vegeta kills Nappa. Notable in that it's this despite Never Say "Die" being in full effect.
        Vegeta: Maybe you won't be such a disappointment... in the next dimension!
    • Goku, of all people, shouts this at Freeza in Dragon Ball Z Kai.
    • A slightly Bowdlerised meta parody occurs in the (now cut) Dragon Ball Z Kai Cell Games Reenactment:
      Fake Mr. Satan: I shall now send you... TO THE NEXT DIMENSION!
      Fake Cell: *girly shriek*
      Fake Mr. Satan: SEE! YOU! IN! HFIL!
    • In Dragon Ball Super Chapter 61, Moro, seemingly about to meet his end from Vegeta's new powers, asks him if he believes that he isn't bound for hell. Vegeta responds that he knows he's going to hell, and when he gets there, he'll be sure to say hello to Moro.
      • This moment came across a bit strange to many fans, who considered it incongruous to Vegeta's character development throughout the franchise. Though it's entirely plausible that Vegeta would believe that he'd previously done so much evil that he's still going to hell regardless of how much he's changed.
  • The final words of Yukio Washimine in Black Lagoon: "Please tell Balalaika that I will be expecting her where she will no doubt follow me."
    • Balalaika herself says this to a Yakuza boss before killing him.
      "I'm only interested in how much I can dance in the pit of hell when it's all over. See you there some day." (Neck Snap)
  • Naruto:
    • When Zabuza is killing Gato, Gato suggests that he should go join Haku by himself, Zabuza says he is going to hell with Gato and will show that he will become "a real demon" in hell. Despite this, after the battle, with his dying breaths, he hopes to go to the same place as Haku in the afterlife. (Later it's shown that they did because the setting has Only One Afterlife.)
    • In a filler episode, Hinata, planning to push her opponent over a cliff and force him to bury himself alive in iron sand with his magnetic ability, says "The only ones going to hell are you and me!" in response to him telling her that she would join Naruto in hell. The dub has her saying that they will go to the "Spirit World".
    • Kiba says something on the same lines during his battle with Ukon/Sakon.
  • In Get Backers, Emishi says this to Shido immediately before unleashing a firestorm attack intended to kill them both.
  • Hellsing has an odd example: When Alexander Anderson lies dying after his final fight with Alucard, Alucard fondly tells him he'll see him in Hell. Anderson retorts that Alucard (who'd been displaying Death Seeker characteristics during the battle) is a pathetic creature who deserves to live forever. Some fans have interpreted the line as affectionate.
  • In One Piece, as the battle between Luffy and Don Krieg gets serious, the two trade barbs around this trope. It basically has Krieg attacking Luffy and telling him to go to Hell, then Luffy counters and replies, "You first!"
  • In Skyhigh, the murdered gold digger's body is left under the hotel room's bed, and when a couple have sex on top of the bed she kills them and is damned for killing someone other than her murderer. Izuko tells her that she'll be eternally lonely there, like Izuko is, and the woman grins and tells her, "See you there."
  • Yotsuba from Yotsuba&! copies the line from a gangster movie her Dad let her watch.
  • Godchild includes a peculiar inversion, in which the phrase (or an approximation of it) is used as touching and possibly, depending upon the reader's view, romantic. Riff's promise to Cain is that he will 'accompany him to Hell', as Cain is convinced he's going there. When Riff has his Face–Heel Turn, the betrayal is sealed by him telling Cain to 'go to Hell on his own'.
  • In one translation of Bleach, Yammy tells Loly "See ya in hell" before preparing to attack her.
  • In Full Metal Panic!, Gauron says numerous versions of this phrase to Sousuke (especially during times when it looks like he's winning). And pretty much every single time, Sousuke beats the crap out of him and blasts him away. Undoubtedly, Gauron really does want to go to Hell and spend eternity there with Sousuke (considering how many times he says this and keeps trying to do a double-suicide with the boy)... but the way he phrases it, it certainly makes for great motivation for Sousuke to make sure it never happens.
  • In Umineko: When They Cry, Ange says this in Gratuitous English before shooting Eva-Beatrice in Eva's form. Or something. "Have a nice dream. See you in Hell. Cool."
  • Said by Koichiro Kase in Knight Hunters when Ken assassinates him. Instead of being creative or snarky, Ken just answers, "This place is hell, too."
  • From one hero to another, before a suicide mission, a subversion from Plastic Little: "When we storm the gates of Hell, I'll take point."
  • Ninja Scroll:
    • Jubei says some variation of this line to Gemma several times within the same scene:
      Jubei: If you so want the company of devils, you'd better hurry back to hell, Gemma.

      Jubei: Gemma, where are you hiding? When I die, I'll take you to Hell with me.

      Jubei: Burn in your golden HELL!
    • Also, Tessai delivers the following line to Jubei before punching him hard enough to break the stone pillar to his back:
      Tessai: Not quite the right direction. The road to Hell is... RIGHT HERE.
  • In chapter 55 of Franken Fran, Kuhou, of all people, says this. Right before she could kill Matsumae, she is shot she falls down the building, but not before uttering the line. She is saved, but still.
  • Vampire Hunter D. In the 1985 movie, when Rei Ginsei paralyzes D with the vampire-affecting candle D tells Ginsei "I'll see you in Hell".
  • Legend of the Galactic Heroes provides an exchange of these during the Battle of Vermilion. Imperial vice-admiral Carnap calls for reinforcements to his commander Reinhard von Lohengramm, but Reinhard has no reserves available anymore and orders him to stay there and die, and if he has anything more to tell him he can do it in Valhalla. And upon receiving this answer, Carnap declares: "Die, he says? Fine, I will! If I die, I'll reach Valhalla first, and you'll be the one running errands for me, Reinhard von Lohengramm!"
  • Jormungand. A mook with an anti-tank launcher is about to blow up Koko.
    "Time to go to hell. Save us a spot, gun girl."
  • In JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable, even though he's getting his ass handed to him by Yoshikage Kira, Koichi Hirose manages to steal the killer's wallet and learn his name. Knowing he's about to die anyway, he decides to taunt Kira by telling him that a simple high schooler had managed to discover his identity, ultimately culminating in this trope.
    Koichi: You're a complete idiot! I'll be looking forward to seeing you in the next world!

    Comic Books 
  • Superman:
    • In Public Enemies:
      Nightwing: Go to hell!
      Lex Luthor: I've been. It's overrated.
    • In Supergirl storyline Death & the Family, Inspector Henderson angrily suggests the spirits of the McDougal Clan to go back to Hell before hurting them by stabbing one of their heirlooms.
      Inspector Henderson: "Your "test" took one of my friends, you Irish demons. I'm not going to let you take another one. Go back to whatever Hell you crawled out of."
  • Arkham Asylum: Living Hell: The demon Etrigan, impressed at how cleverly the villain Great White Shark has wheeled and dealed for himself in both Arkham and his future afterlife down below, smiles and says, "Guile and style. You'll do well. Keep in touch, I'll see you in hell."
  • In Preacher: The Saint of Killers, to the dying Big Bad — whom he came back from HELL to kill. "There ain't worse than me in all of Hell. [as he shoots] Go an' look."
  • Knightfall: Right before Bane breaks him, Batman utters "...go back to hell..."
  • These are The Joker's last words in Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, right before he commits suicide in such a way that it looks like Batman killed him. Michael Emerson's weakened Joker voice in its Animated Adaptation makes this line all the more chilling and scarier. Even one of the songs in its movie soundtrack is aptly named "See You... in Hell".
  • Hellboy Volume 1:
    Hellboy: Go... to... hell...
    Rasputin: No need, creature. Hell is coming here!!
  • Mystique says a very interesting variation in her own limited series. To fight a small army of well-armed soldiers, she uses her powers in an admittedly dangerous way. (She sort of splits her head in two, forming two heads... It's kind of hard to describe.) After defeating most of the soldiers, the final one is horrified and calls her a demon. She replies by pointing her gun at him and saying, "Sure I am. See you in my hometown," right before letting him have it.
  • Something like this happens during the Spider-Man crossover Maximum Carnage. Early in the series, Dagger is believed to have been killed, murdered by the sociopath Shriek. In a later episode, Shriek makes a threat like this to Cloak, after implying that Dagger is already there. However, she gets this from a very angry Cloak after her attempt to kill him misses:
    Cloak: If there is an afterlife, rest assured that Dagger is with God now. However, if it's the other place you're interested in...
Note that this is a subversion because his attempt "misses" too.
  • A member of the "Holocaust Squad" in Judge Dredd uses this as a reply to be wished good luck by a teammate when they are both jumping into molten lava to try averting a volcanic catastrophe in Mega-City One.
  • In Cerebus the Aardvark, when President Weisshaupt is dying and fails to tell Cerebus who the other two aardvarks in Estarcion are:
    Cerebus: Go to HELL!
    Weisshaupt: I shall, Great Cerebus. I shall.
  • The Smurfs:
    • In the comic book story "The Egg And The Smurfs", a Smurf gets so fed up with another Smurf being so indecisive about what to wish for with the magic egg that he tells the other Smurf "to the devil with you" while accidentally striking the egg...and that Smurf ends up meeting the devil. By the end of the story, however, when Papa Smurf wishes everything to return to normal, that Smurf returns with a pitchfork in hand.
    • In "Sagratamabarb", Gargamel tries to get rid of his titular cousin by saying, "see if the devil has any room for you." A moment later, Gargamel's cousin returns with a couple of demons as witness that the devil doesn't have any room for him.
    • In another comic book story, a Smurf makes a wish with a magic bird that he wants Gargamel to go to hell, and POOF! that's where he went.
  • In The Golden Age, Lance Gallant tells the spirit of his dead brother Michael (who constantly torments him to become Captain Triumph so he could live again) "go to hell and take this big metal bastard with you" before he and Robotman both die by electrocution.
  • In the Hercules graphic novel "Full Circle", the eponymous hero is engaged in one on one combat with Arimathes, a tyrant who, egged on and manipulated by his scheming and vengeful mother, has used his tremendous physical capabilities and army to conquer the galaxy. In the midst of their battle, the Emperor, who also happens to be Hercules' bastard son, tells the Prince of Power to 'Go to Hell'. The Greek god retorts with "What know thee of Hades? I have been there and fought my way out! But thou dost live in a private hell, designed by that lying wench thou calls...'Mother'!"
  • Fury: My War Gone By has Fury's last meeting with his old enemy, Letrong Giap, at the Vietnam War Memorial.
    Giap: Oh, how we abuse our warriors' faith. We send them to fight for unspeakable things. *Offers his hand* We are both bound for hell, Colonel Fury. But I hope you find a comfortable place to wait.
    * Fury stares in silence for a long moment, then shakes his hand*

    Comic Strips 
  • Inverted in one Far Side comic. A salesman comes to the front desk of Hell, and the secretary phones Satan:
    "Sir? It's another salesman. Shall I send him in or tell him to go to Heaven?"

    Fan Works 
  • A variation appears in a Batman/The Crow/The Shadow crossover fanfic this submitter found once. The Joker shoots Eric Draven in the face, then says, "I bet he never danced with the Devil in the pale moonlight." (A reference to the 1989 Batman movie.) Draven nonchalantly gets up, dusts himself off, and responds, "Actually, I have. Satan does a pretty mean two-step."
    How's Alec Baldwin's health these days?
  • In the My-HiME/Hell Girl fic, The Grinning Snake, Konoka, the daughter of one of the people from the First District whom Shizuru killed, says "Shizuru Fujino…I'll see you in Hell!" when preparing to send Shizuru to Hell after seeing that she has no remorse. Since the contract indicates that Konoka will also go to Hell after she dies, Konoka means this literally.
  • In the Crack Fic Voyager Chicks Behind Forcefields Captain Janeway is about to kill her Chief Engineer, B'Elanna Torres.
    B'ELANNA: You petaQ! I hope you rot in Gre'thor!
    JANEWAY: You first! Make sure the replicators are working by the time I arrive — I'll need plenty of coffee!
  • In Supergirl fic Hellsister Trilogy, as she's hurling her evil duplicate Satan Girl into an anti-matter sun, the Girl of Steel says, "Hellsister, go to Hell."
  • Delivered by Ayame Ishikawa from Despair's Last Resort right before she's dragged off to be executed. She was suffering from a Freak Out prior to this, so it's most likely due to her anger-driven state.
  • In Gensokyo 20XXIII, as she was being gapped away, Seija said, "Well I'm off, bitch!" to which Yukari responded, "I'll see you in hell."
  • The Ultimate Evil:

    • Nat uses this as a Bond One-Liner to the demon she kills in her first appearance.
      Nat: May Hell keep you. For you're not welcome here.
  • In an Empath: The Luckiest Smurf story adaptation, Duncan McSmurf, when rescuing a golden magic bird from Lord Balthazar, wishes the evil wizard to go to Tartarus...and suddenly, Balthazar finds himself there!
  • Code Prime: During the battle of Castle Weisswolf, right before Kallen and Arcee kill her, Airachnid promises to wait for them in hell with a sharp object and a desire to see if someone can die twice.

    Film — Animated 

    Film — Live-Action 
  • Subverted in The Batman (2022). The Riddler sends taunting greeting cards to the title character. Then a bomb targets Bruce Wayne directly, and the card says "See you in Hell," implying the Riddler has worked out Batman's Secret Identity. Turns out he doesn't know Batman and Bruce are the same; instead, the Riddler thinks that Batman agrees with his tactics, and the "Hell" is referring to them meeting in Arkham Asylum, where Batman will be safe from the final part of his Evil Plan.
  • A weird variation of this occurs in Batman Returns when the Penguin attempts to kill Catwoman by hanging her with a noose on the end of his helicopter-umbrella (she survives, at the cost of one of her nine lives). He doesn't wish for her to suffer Hell, but:
    Penguin: Goodbye, my unintended... Go to Heaven...
  • Batman Forever: Two-Face tells Robin this as he's about to fall. Robin saves him, and replies, "I'd rather see you in jail."
  • The junkyard scene in A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master.
    Kincaid (having just been stabbed in the gut): I'll see you in Hell.
    Freddy Krueger: Tell 'em Freddy sent you!
  • A hilarious variant occurs in Full Contact, during the final duel between the hero, Jeff, and the villain, a homosexual killer who calls himself "The Judge". Mortally wounded by the hero, the Judge talks about how he secretly admired Jeff. Jeff then finishes off the Judge with this gem:
    Jeff: Then you can go masturbate in hell!
  • Fits in Hellraiser:
    Kirsty Cotton: Go to Hell!
    Cenobite: We can't, not alone.
  • Uttered in 300. Upon meeting an approaching army of a million, Spartan King Leonidas tells his warriors that "tonight, we dine in Hell!" This is closely based on a quote that Plutarch (Morlia, circa 100 CE) attributes to Leonidas: "Breakfast well, for we may today dine among ghosts," making this Older Than Feudalism.
  • In Unforgiven, while Little Bill lies dying he gasps, "I'll see you in hell, William Munny!". Munny just mutters "yeah" and shoots him in the face. He knows exactly where he's going and is no longer pretending otherwise.
  • Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
    Indy: Prepare to meet Kali... in Hell!
    • Which was probably just being used as a Stock Phrase with no regard for theological accuracy.
  • Used completely out of the blue in The Empire Strikes Back, as Han is leaving Echo Base to search for Luke in a blizzard:
    Rebel technician: Sir, your tauntaun will freeze before you reach the first marker.
    Han: Then I'll see you in hell!
    • Of course, given the setting, he is not referring to the Christian Hell, but rather Chaos, the galaxy's equivalent (just as The Star Wars Holiday Special features Life Day, not Christmas).
  • A variant appears in The Three Musketeers (1993) between two of the protagonists as they split up:
    Aramis: See you in Calais!
    Athos: Or hell!
  • Hocus Pocus, where the witches got their powers from Satan:
    Billy: Go to hell!
    Winifred: Oh, I've been there, thank you! I found it quite lovely!

    Linda: Go to hell.
  • Used to truly Narmtacular effect at the end of this clip of the obscure 1988 film Action U.S.A.
  • Implied in Lethal Weapon 3, where Riggs has just shot the Big Bad. Barely alive, the Big Bad looks at Riggs...
    Big Bad: "Go to hell, Riggs."
    Riggs: "You first."
  • Licence to Kill: Big Bad of the week Franz Sanchez decides to teach Bond's friend Felix Leiter a lesson. With sharks. As Leiter is lowered into the pit, guess what he says?
    Felix: "SEE YOU IN HELL, SANCHEZ!!!"
  • GoldenEye: Reversed.
    Trevelyan: "See you in hell, James."
  • Lord John Whorfin's uttering of that line, from The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension.
  • A rare friendly example of this is seen in Punisher: War Zone when The Punisher finds a badly wounded Carlos. It ends up being an unusually touching scene, considering the movie.
    Carlos: I'll see you in hell, Frank.
    Punisher: If I see you anywhere near hell, I'll kick your ass out.
  • In Wild Wild West, after Loveless double-crosses him, McGrath pulls a gun and tells Loveless "you go straight to hell, sir". Loveless fires first with a hidden gun and quips "after you, sir".
  • Good Burger: "All right, dude, see ya there!"
  • In the 1945 Margaret Lockwood film The Wicked Lady, the eponymous Lady Skelton shoots her highwayman lover, Jerry Jackson, who dies saying to her, "To our next merry meeting, in Hell!"
  • In Gettysburg, a Union officer from Maine and a Confederate soldier from Tennessee — the latter having been taken prisoner — befriend each other in the aftermath of a very costly battle (the Railroad Cut). Just before the Confederate is marched to the rear, the two men exchange salutes and the following macabre show of respect:
    Confederate Prisoner: See you in Hell, Billy Yank.
    Lt. Tom Chamberlain: See you in Hell, Johnny Reb.
  • Shout at the Devil (1976). Dying O'Flynn says a variation of this to the German Big Bad, moments before the bomb he placed in the battleship's magazine explodes.
    O'Flynn: See you in a minute, Fleischer. We'll shout at the Devil together.
  • In The Running Man (starring Arnold Schwarzenegger), right in the beginning, while they're in the chopper, one of the cronies tells Richard "I'll see you in hell" before knocking him out.
  • The protagonist's boss in Spawn (1997) utters the line (together with a salute) right before he sets him on fire and leaves him to die in the middle of an exploding chemical plant. Justified by the fact that he was killing him as part of a Deal with the Devil, making the phrase something other than a figure of speech.
  • A small variant is spoken by Loki in Thor: The Dark World when he defeats Kurse after being seemingly fatally wounded.
    Loki: See you in Hel, monster.
  • Constantine (2005): John gives an ultimatum to a bunch of demonic half-breeds.
    Constantine: My name's John. You are in violation of the Balance. Leave immediately, or I will deport you. All of you. [they just stare at him] Go to hell.
  • In The Prophecy Katherine tells Gabriel to "Go to hell." He corrects her; "Heaven, darling. Heaven. At least get the zip code right."
  • The Mummy Trilogy:
    • Near the end of The Mummy Returns, as Rick O'Connell is stabbing the Scorpion King he screams "Go to hell! And take your friends with you!" Somewhat of an aversion because Rick doesn't die, but he comes pretty close.
    • In The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, Rick says that the Emperor "can now rule... in hell!"
  • In Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Jay says this to Will Ferrell's wildlife marshal when the latter chases him and Silent Bob off the ledge of a sewer and straight down into a waterfall.
  • As he lies dying, Booth asks Machete where his wife and daughter are. Machete says, "With God," and Booth responds, "Then I won't be seeing them."

  • In Halloween: Resurrection, Laurie says this to her brother Michael before falling to her death.
  • This is the last thing Shinzaemon says to Hanbei in 13 Assassins.
  • Not to mention an adaption of Shakespeare's Richard III set in an alternate World War Two-style setting. The last words of Richard, and of the entire film: "Let's do it Pell mell! If not in heaven, then Hand in Hand to Hell!"
    • The dialogue was transposed and slightly altered from a speech Richard gave in the original play, just before the final battle:
      "Let not our babbling dreams affright our souls:
      Conscience is but a word that cowards use,
      Devised at first to keep the strong in awe:
      Our strong arms be our conscience, swords our law.
      March on, join bravely, let us to't pell-mell
      If not to heaven, then hand in hand to hell."
  • In The Warrior's Way, the Big Bad is knifed to death by the girl he almost raped (which was actually because he killed her parents before that):
    "I'll see you in hell, little girl. Wear something nasty."
  • Used a few times in Purgatory. An outlaw says "We've got a long ride ahead of us. Those who can keep up with me, I'll see you in Chihuahua. The rest of you, I'll see you in hell." As it turns out, though, it is the ones who keep up with him who end up going with him into Hell.
  • Used in Little Nicky between two sons of the Devil. When Adrian and Valerie end up in front of a subway train, Nicky jumps onto the tracks, throws Valerie out of the way, and holds Adrian in front of it, expecting them both to go to Hell (which isn't a problem for either of them and will restore their dad's health). Unfortunately, only Adrian goes to Hell — dying to protect his love interest sends Nicky to Heaven.
    • A more subtle example appears earlier where a con man is forced to give up Nicky's flask meant to imprison his brothers and drives off Valerie for being the one to threaten to bring the police over. Nicky remarks, "I'll see you in a few years."
  • Said by Tex (while giving a thumbs up) before he takes his own life in Robot Jox.
    Tex: I'll see you in Hell. [Jumps through a window.) GERONIMOOOOOO!
  • As the captor in Nine Dead prepares to kill one of the prisoners, the prisoner throws out a final taunt by saying that he'll be seeing the guy in Hell. The captor calmly replies "I know" as he shoots him.

    Kane: I'll see you in hell... huhahaha!
    [Connor defeats him]
    Connor: I'll be the judge of that.
  • In Point Break (1991), the character Roach yells a variant of this trope to Johnny Utah. After taking a gunshot to the gut, he cocks his head back, squints his eyes, and says "See you in hell, Johnny!" before jumping from a plane.
  • Outpost: Rise of the Spetsnaz. An SS officer tackles Russian commando Fyodor.
    SS: Not so tough now, you Bolshevik bastard! Where do you think you're going?
    Fyodor: We'll figure it out together. (stabs him)
    • In a heroic version, Fyodor to his commander, Dolokhov.
    "I would have followed you through the gates of Hell. But now, you follow me!"
  • Parodied by Admilar (sic) Pirk in Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning: See you in Reykjavik!
  • Scanner Cop: Zena taunts Sam with this when she's dying after a car crash, as she's his only lead to the primary villain. In a variation, he then uses his psychic powers to literally follow her path into Hell to get the info he needs.
  • The Omen (1976):
    Robert Thorn: I've listened to you. Now you listen to me. I never want to see you again.
    Father Brennan: You'll see me in Hell, Mr. Thorn. There we will serve out our sentence.
  • In Krampus, Aunt Dorothy gives this line verbatim just before being dragged off by Krampus' elves.
  • Demolition Man. During their final confrontation, the villain Simon Phoenix battles his nemesis John Spartan. Finally, he tells him "I hate cops! Look into my eyes. I'll see you in hell!"
  • Faust: Love of the Damned: A literal example when Jaspers tells M that they'll meet again when M sends him to Hell. M gives a typical retort.
  • The Dark Side of the Moon: Giles says "See you in Hell" to the Devil himself before pulling a Heroic Sacrifice.
  • Implied in the John Wick series where the famous last words of a couple of major characters are "Be seeing you."
  • Used hammily in Nick Fury—Agent of Shield:
    Fury: [sweetly] "We'll do lunch."
  • Done with even more ham in Hawk the Slayer — though the evil wizard brings Voltan back from the dead for a (never made) sequel, so he wouldn't have had to wait that long.
    Voltan: Brother... I shall... wait for you... at the GATES OF HEEELLLLLL!
  • Sleepers. Two child abuse victims confront the guard who molested them years before in a youth detention home. Unfortunately for him, they are now sociopathic criminals who have no problem shooting a man in public.

    John: Yeah, after you. [shoots him]

    Claire: You think you're going to make a slave of the world? I'll see you in Hell first! (fires rifle)
  • Played with in The Dark Tower (2017) when Evil Sorcerer Walter O'Dim taunts a dying Gunslinger. When the Gunslinger gasps out, "Go to hell!" Walter just shoots back, "Been there." Unlike most, Walter probably means it literally.
  • Transformers: The Last Knight: Izabella tries this line on Megatron at one point. Given he's died twice and all his plans have been foiled since he got stranded on Earth, Megatron thinks he's already there.
    Izabella: Go to hell!

  • At the end of the Alistair MacLean novel Fear is the Key the protagonist mentions how the Professional Killer he'd helped convict spent the entire trial just staring at him as if to say, "Eternity is a long time, but I'll be waiting."
  • Pretty much the last thing that Jimmy the Hand says to his brother-in-law William in the Serpentwar Saga is "See you in Darkmoor or see you in Hell". Neither makes it out of Krondor alive. Oddly, the religion of that universe states that most people don't go to Heaven or Hell, they just reincarnate.
  • In The Apocalypse Troll this is Captain Onslow's last words, shouted over a static-filled transmission to Ludmilla as his ship rams the enemy dreadnaught.
  • In one of The Savannah Reid Mysteries, one character says to another: "We're both dead. But you're goin' to get to hell first, buddy... just a few seconds before me."
  • A heartbreaking, though non-fatal one occurs in The English Monster by Lloyd Shepherd. Billy Ablass, an Englishman made immortal in 1564, falls in with the pirate Henry Morgan and uses a little girl as a human shield during the infamous attack on Portobelo. In his old age, Morgan says to Ablass, "That child awaits us both at the gates of Hell, quartermaster."
  • Played for laughs in Damned by Chuck Palahniuk. Teenagers who've gone to hell (it's not as bad as it sounds) get to return to Earth for a few hours on Hallowe'en to go trick-or-treating. When they split up to go their separate rounds, they casually go "OK. See you in hell!"
  • Fire & Blood tells of the Shepherd—a one-handed, insane prophet who foments a deadly riot in King's Landing during the Dance of the Dragons and sends thousands to their deaths in storming the Dragonpit to kill the dragons inside. When he is finally caught by Lord Borros Baratheon, he tells him "We shall meet in hell before this year is done"—and when he is brought to trial before King Aegon II, he repeats the same curse before the enraged king orders his tongue torn out and sentences him to death. Both lord and king do indeed end up dying soon after—Lord Baratheon's head is stoved in by a morning star, and King Aegon is poisoned by members of his own council.
  • In Star Trek: Vanguard, Klingon Captain Brakk says the equivalent to a rival Captain, Kutal. Specifically, Brakk is in the process of trying to kill Kutal, and says that since the latter's death will hardly be an honourable one, they will no doubt meet up again - in the Klingon underworld of Gre'thor.
  • At the end of The Six Sacred Stones by Matthew Reilly, The Mole is about to drop the MacGuffin needed to save the world into a bottomless pit. He yells this line just before the Big Damn Heroes moment.

  • In The Chinatown Death Cloud Peril, by Paul Malmont, H. P. Lovecraft is confronted by an enemy from his past who strangles him on his deathbed, promising to "hunt you down in hell".
  • In the Night Lords trilogy shortly before the climax of Void Stalker, Talos says this to his oldest friend Xarl just after the latter's Viking funeral.
    • This might need a bit of context. Because the Night Lords historically pursued cruel and ruthless warfare because it was just the sort of enforcer that the Imperium needed but no one else was willing to resort to, they have developed a culture of sadism and terror that has haunted them throughout their history. That said, this phrase was said without any antagonism and as an honest assessment of their lives, and also a twisted moment of shared brotherhood between Night Lords.
  • In the Christ Clone Trilogy, The Antichrist Christopher Goodman tells Decker Hawthorne "see you in Hell" after he lops off Decker's head with a sword.
  • When his servant Sam blackmails him in The French Lieutenant's Woman, Charles Smithson yells at him, "Go to the devil!" Sam calmly replies, "No sir. I wouldn't want to go nowhere that I might meet a friend of yours."
  • Black House: Wanda Kinderling (a woman whose husband, Thornberg, went to prison for murder thanks to protagonist Jack Sawyer) shouts these words after she guns down Sawyer, and just before she attempts to take her own life. That last bit fails however when she realizes she emptied the gun already.

    Live-Action TV 
  • Subverted in 30 Rock - after Kenneth is fired from the page program, he crashed a function and goes on the nicest drunken rant ever, telling everyone how much he appreciated his job and how much they mean to him. He finishes: "So kiss my face!! I'll see you all in Heaven!!!"
  • Zig-zag: An episode of All in the Family had Archie prematurely announced as being dead, a rumor that spreads far enough to reach an insurance company that calls Edith. Angered, Archie takes the phone:
    This is Archie Bunker talking' to ya from the grave! Wish you were here!
  • In the finale of Season 1 of Altered Carbon, Poe defiantly says this to Leung as he destabilizes his nanobot-body, in keeping with his being themed after the horror novelist of the same name. He gets better, though. Mostly.

    Cupid: I'd say enjoy the afterlife, but we both know that's just eternal nothingness.
  • By all appearances, this is the favorite phrase of Babylon 5's Captain Sheridan.
    • Aptly retorted once by the Vorlons' Inquisitor:

  • Said by Blake himself in Blake's 7 episode "Countdown", to Provine—who, moments previously, told Blake to Go to Hell.

    • Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

        All those secrets you've been concealing / Say you're happy now / Once more with feeling.

      • And in "Prophecy Girl":
        Buffy: (to the Master) You're that amped about Hell? Go there.
      • Unusually, Spike addresses someone absent when he tries to throw himself on a stake:
        Spike: Good-bye, Dru. See you in Hell...
      • When Spike gets a soul he's driven insane by the memories of the countless people he's tortured and murdered over the years.
        "And now everybody's in here, talking. [snip] They all just tell me go... go... to Hell."
    • Also on Angel. Note that Angel spent around a century in a hell dimension after the above-mentioned "Becoming" episode.

        Wesley: Oh thank God! What is it?
        Gunn: We die horribly and painfully, you go to Hell and I spend eternity in the arms of baby Jesus.
  • Burn Notice:
    Rincon: Go to Hell.
    Michael Westen: Come with me!
    • Made all the more epic by the fact that Michael was masquerading as Lou, and pulling off a very convincing act as the Devil.
    • From the pilot:
    Madeline: You know, you missed your father's eight years.
    Michael: Well, the last thing he ever told me was, "I'll see you in Hell, boy!" So I figured we had something on the books.
  • Carnivàle:
    Sophie: Go to Hell.
    Brother Justin: Go. Why? I plan on bringing it here!
  • Charmed:
    • Cole, in response to a cowboy using the trope, says "Been there, done that."
    • The exchange of Prue crying "Go to hell!", with a warlock responding, "I'd love to, dear. Miss it terribly." Something like that seems to be the default warlock/demon response whenever anyone tells them to go to hell. You'd think sooner or later the witches would learn to stop doing it.
  • The Colbert Report:
    • Each "Cheating Death" segment ends with the phrase "This is Stephen Colbert, and I'll see you in health!" Too bad the Closed Captioning is programmed wrong...
    • Also to his brother: "COL-bert or Col-BARE?" "COL-bert." "I'll see you in hell."
  • Parodied in Community:
    Jeff: Greendale, it's been a pleasure fighting with you. Some of us won't make it. But there is a place where we will all see each other again, and that place is Denny's.

    Jeff: We'll figure it out later, Leonard.
    Leonard: The one near the fifteen exit? I'm banned from there.
    Jeff: Well then I guess I'll see you in Hell.

    • Jack Harkness says it twice ("Boom Town" and "The Parting of the Ways") to his friends. In the former, it's before they go to capture the episode's villain, and in the latter, it's before going off to fight Daleks.
    • "The Satan Pit": The line in full, by Rose, to the Devil, before throwing him into a black hole.
  • In the Fallen Angels episode "Tomorrow I Die" (an adaptation of a Mickey Spillane story) the protagonist is about to be shot dead by a bank robber holding them hostage, so he tells Carol that he'll see her in the next life.

  • In season three of The Good Place, Eleanor says this after she finds out that she, Chidi, Tahani, and Jason are all doomed to go to the Bad Place regardless of what they do. As she walks out she pauses to note that while she says this a lot this time it's literally true.

  • Parodied in the MADtv (1995) sketch "Woody Allen Action Flick", just before Woody Allen blows up a terrorist:
    Terrorist: I'll see you in Hell.
    Woody Allen: I don't believe in Hell. How about Los Angeles?
  • Modern Family: A rather sweet version, when Jay's former friend turned Sitcom Arch-Nemesis dies. His farewell message to Jay ends with this phrase verbatim.
    Jay: [smiling] I look forward to that.
  • Mystery Science Theater 3000: Oh, you never want to see a spring again, eh? Coily the Spring Sprite will make sure you get that wish... in HELL!
  • In Penny Dreadful Hecate tells Ethan "Hell awaits us both." In the context of her relationship with Ethan and her being a Satan-worshiping witch, this is more of a promise they'll be Together in Death than the usual curse.
  • Red Dwarf: Following logically from the belief that mechanoids who obey their programming go to "Silicon Heaven", a rogue mechanoid snarls "See you in Silicon Hell!"

After this doesn't seem to have any effect and he keeps talking, Jordan pointedly says "Yawn. You see, I say yawn because when I actually yawn, you don't get it." Dr. Kelso, grimacing after her; "See you in hell."
  • Stargate:
    • A variant from Stargate SG-1: Stargate: The Ark of Truth occurs when General Landry replies to a Prior who's just given him a fire and brimstone speech.

    • And again in Season 3's "Time Is On My Side", when Bela is about to be killed and dragged down to hell by hellhounds. Dean says, "I'll see you in Hell" and since Dean is dragged off by hellhounds himself in the following episode, that may well have happened. It's Book Ends for a scene at the start of the episode when Sam and Dean exorcise a demon who knows Dean's only got three weeks before his Deal with the Devil comes due.
      Demon: Go ahead. Send me back to Hell. Because when you do I'll be waiting for ya. Got a few pals who are dying for a meet-and-greet with Dean Winchester.

      Mendez: Go to hell...
    • An interesting take is made in Halo: Reach, when Sgt. Buck, after you safely see his Falcon across the city, tells you "Thanks for the assist, Spartan. I'll see you in Hell." This is said with a friendly intonation, as if akin to "I'll see you back at your place." This isn't too surprising since Sgt.

  • Used entirely straight - and in a perfectly even tone - at the end of Cyberia, as you blast a stream of plasma fire into your Bad Boss's space-station office.

He tells you he is on a course for Hell because your mission officer told him to go there.

      Noriega: (cough) Go to Hell!
      Mason: (kicks him in the stomach) Hell? We've already been.

    LeChuck: [turns to Elaine] That sultry sea-minx had it for Threepwood! Her corsair sailed for only him! [turns back to Guybrush, smiling] A pity I had to kill her! But now they can kindle their love [turns angry] in hell! [punches Guybrush]

    "May there be... a hell... for you... a Tartarus... bleak, unending!"
    • In the Dead Money DLC, Father Elijah also has some spiteful parting words to you if he is trapped in the Sierra Madre vault at the end. Rather appropriate, considering where you've trapped him.
      "You. I know you can hear me. When you die, Courier... I'll be waiting. Your grave's going look just like this vault. (lowers voice to a hissing whisper) When you die... I'll be waiting here... at the Sierra Madre. Waiting..."

  • In the Japanese version of Star Fox 64, Pigma Dengar tells Fox, "Your daddy's waitin' for ya in hell!" In the English version, this was bowdlerized to "Daddy screamed REAL good before he died!", which is arguably worse as it makes Pigma seem extra sadistic.

    • Granted, Matt came back to life to referee the murder-off, so subverted, as well.
  • While fighting a demonic Undead Child, Dr. McNinja gives Gordito a lesson in the art of the Pre-Mortem One-Liner:
    Gordito: Uh... Uh... Die!
    Dr. McNinja: No, no, no. "Die"? Gordito, it's a ghost. It's already dead. That's not what you say. We are banishing a malevolent spirit from the world of the living and sending it to the afterlife. This is what we say.
    * prepares a cross-shaped shuriken*
    Dr. McNinja: Go to hell.
  • Used by Koji in Mitadake Saga.

    Dr. Maddison: "I'LL SEE YOU IN HELL"
  • I'm the Grim Reaper: Scarlet usually says something along these lines before killing a sinner. She means it quite literally; after killing one, she has to go back to hell to see how Satan punishes them.

  • In DEATH BATTLE!, this has happened twice so far:
    • "Nightwing vs. Daredevil", in the last portion of the fight, Daredevil has Nightwing pinned down as is about to move in for the kill when the latter activates his ultrasonic Wing-Dings, disorienting Matt and allowing Dick to snap his neck with an electrified punch to the jaw. When Murdock's body hits the ground, Grayson departs using the trope name as a Bond One-Liner.
    • The second comes from "Cable vs. Booster Gold", in the fight's final moments. Booster Gold has Cable trapped in his force field and despite Cable's best efforts, he's unable to resist it, so he lets out this as his last words right before the force field crushes him. Notably, Booster looks more annoyed at this than anything, likely since such insults are pretty common for him.
      Cable: I'll see you in hell, you goddamn golden asshole!
  • When Bonnie and Gayle end up in a situation that could get them killed, Gayle tells Bonnie she'll meet her in hell 'by the panini station'. Bonnie says she'll see her there. Fitting, really, considering their crouton business was also called "Meet Me In Hell Croutons".
  • Hellsing Ultimate Abridged, courtesy of Sir Penwood:
    Penwood: When you get to Hell, tell them Penwood sent you. And then apologize on my behalf for the inconvenience.
  • There was a video of a boy being asked questions by his teacher, which led into the boy answering that if his teacher wants an answer to a certain question she asked him, she'll have to wait when she goes to Heaven so she can ask God. When she asked what if she doesn't go to Heaven (the intent of her question was what if God and the afterlife don't exist), the boy answered "Okay, then when you go to Hell, you can ask Satan."

The guests were Homer's old army sergeant (who was willing to overlook Homer accidentally being released from service three weeks early), an IRS agent (who was willing to overlook an improperly paid income tax), and Reverend Lovejoy. When the dinner is ruined, the guests storm out.

    • Parodied in "The Cartridge Family", when Homer engages in a round of skeet shooting with his new gun and a few thrown dinner plates. He gets most of them, but misses one, bringing him to walk over, and with the appropriate music and camera angles, mutter, "See you in Hell, dinner plate!" before shooting it where it lies.
    • Parodied in Treehouse of Horror IV, where Homer is avoiding getting his soul sold to the Devil (Flanders):
    • As the family attempts to board the helicopter escaping from Itchy & Scratchy Land, the man in the Itchy costume (whom Homer and Bart had been tormenting throughout the episode) kicks them off, saying "Hey, you're the guys who didn't like our bit! When you get to Hell, tell 'em Itchy sent ya!"
    • In "The Ziff Who Came To Dinner", during a Blair Witch-style investigation of the attic, Lisa tearfully tapes a goodbye message to her family and tells Bart "I'll see you in Hell, you booger eating coward! That's right, WE ALL KNOW."
    • Parodied yet again in "Mom and Pop Art," when Homer is attempting to flood Springfield Venice-style as a pop-art project. The first step involves stealing everyone's doormats and using them to plug up the town's street drains. Homer and Bart make various quips while tossing them, including "See You In Hell, God Bless This House!"

      Bender: Hey, that guy says—
      Robot Devil: I heard him.
  • Transformers: Beast Wars has a few variants, such as "Give my regards to the Inferno!"

      You think that you've won, you think all is well! But kiss my green ass; I shall see you in hell!
    • Also, from the battle with Crippletron in "No Meals on Wheels", Peter begs Ben Stiller for help while trapped under some rubble, a callback to a cutaway earlier in the episode. Stiller refuses, due to having overheard Peter insult his movies with his enormous ears.

    • Used casually at the Special People's Games in "Ready, Willing, and Disabled".

  • The Batman: The Animated Series episode "Perchance to Dream" was originally supposed to feature Batman saying this to the dream version of himself (who turns out to actually be the Mad Hatter), but S&P made them change it to "See you in your nightmares.", which actually works well with the episode's theme.
  • Adventure Time: in the season 2 premiere "It Came From the Nightosphere", Finn had accidentally released Marceline's father, a nigh-unstoppable soul-sucking demon king from a fiery dimension called the Nightosphere. Finn was eventually able to distract him and banish him back. After, he says this line:
    Finn: I'll see you in the Nightosphere, ya sick freak.
  • From The Venture Bros. second-season episode "Love Bheits":
    Brock: Hank, no! It's suicide!
    Hank: Then I'll see you in heck!
  • American Dad! has an episode where Stan clones Steve, leaving the original Steve to be raised exclusively by Francine, while Stan raises the clone.

  • Hell wasn't explicitly mentioned, but the effect was similar and the eventual destination was clearly implied: when Jacques de Molay, the last Grand Master of the Knights Templar, was about to be burned at the stake for probably false charges of heresy, it's said that his last words were to tell Pope Clement V and King Philip IV of France (the ones responsible for his execution) that within a year they'd be facing God's judgment for their crimes. Both Clement and Philip really did die within a year of Jacques' execution. This formed the basis of The Accursed Kings.
  • According to the Roman biographer and historian Suetonius, a certain actor playing in a musical farce during Emperor Nero's bloody reign when he was purging suspected enemies did a song and dance in which he sang "Goodbye Father, goodbye Mother" while making gestures at the audience as if he were eating, drinking, and swimming. (Nero's mother Agrippina is believed to have killed his adoptive father Claudius with a poisoned mushroom; Nero in turn later tried to drown his mother, and then had his henchmen stab her to death with their swords after she got away by swimming for her life.) When he got to the last line of the song, "Hell guides your feet..." he swept his hand out in the general direction of the audience.

  • The Steel billionaire Andrew Carnegie, and the chairman of his company board, Henry Clay Frick famously did not get along. When Carnegie tried to make amends late in life, Frick told the courier "Tell him I'll see him in Hell, where we both are going."

  • Norwegian Nazi collaborator and infamous torturer Henry Rinnan was sentenced to death by a tribunal after World War II, and before he was shot allegedly said it: "See you in hell, guys".
  • Gary Gilmore, whose 1977 execution made world headlines as the first in the United States after the death penalty was reinstated, is reported to have said something along these lines to two other Utah death row inmates, Dale Selby Pierre and William Andrews, as he was led away to the firing squad; there's dispute on the exact wording. Gilmore had developed an intense loathing for the two men, partly motivated by Even Evil Has Standards, since Pierre and Andrews were the perpetrators of the horrific 1974 "Hi-Fi Murders".note
