Compare WingedSoulFliesOffAtDeath. Contrast CessationOfExistence.

Expect examples of this trope to make use of the words "ascend" and "above" in line with HeavenAbove, where the divine and supernatural are associated with the sky above us. Compare WingedSoulFliesOffAtDeath. Contrast CessationOfExistence.

* ''Kid Kool and the Quest for the Seven Wonder Herbs'' has this if you lose all of your lives. The king's assistant says that Kid Kool has died, and the king says that the game is over. But a continue option will be added. If it is selected, Kid Kool, as an angel, returns to the king and says, "I'm sorry about that. I guess I died." According to JamesRolfe in his WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd review, the king can bring Kid Kool back to life, and Kid Kool thanks the king. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXPaJ3h_Yak&feature=channel&t=11m56s Here]] is a reaction to one of the reviewers '''and''' the entire cutscene.

*** It's a RunningGag ''in universe.'' Absolutely ''nobody'' expects Jackson to either stay alive or dead for any length of time.

* ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'':
** The whole purpose of Purgatory is to prepare penitents for the over-powering perfection of Paradise, which us puny post-fallen peons could not pretend to perceive pre-purgation. The process is visualized in the ''Comedy'' by a mountain souls literally ascend.
** Statius is shown completing his time in Purgatory, an shift so momentous that the whole mountain shakes to let everyone know Statius will now leave the physical universe to live in God.

* In the ''Literature/YoungWizards'' series by Creator/DianeDuane, this concept gets used as a moral quandary in one book: is it worth releasing the ultimate SealedEvilInACan to reopen the possibility - just the possibility - of this future for a race which cut themselves off from it (and is just fine with that decision, thank you very much, and actually does seem tremendously ''better off'' the way things are)?

** Both of the Twelfth Doctor's principal companions experience this.
*** Clara Oswald is KilledOffForReal in "Face the Raven", but two episodes later in "Hell Bent" the DrivenToMadness Doctor uses Time Lord technology to extract her living self from the timeline at the moment right before she died. This renders her functionally immortal, but also threatens to destroy the Web of Time because her death is a fixed point. After they steal another TARDIS from Gallifrey, Clara convinces the Doctor that she must return to her death rather than be returned to Earth and mind-wiped at his hand. Instead, he loses most of his memories of her, she commandeers TARDIS 2.0, she restores his own TARDIS to him...and then decides to enjoy her "wiggle room" by returning to Gallifrey and her death "the long way round".
*** Bill Potts is barely saved from the grave after her heart is vaporized in "World Enough and Time", but the technology that keeps her alive is actually Proto-Cyberman tech. She's eventually upgraded into the first Mondasian Cyberman by the Harold Saxon Master, something the Doctor doesn't have the means to undo, and in "The Doctor Falls" it looks like she'll have to be KilledOffForReal to escape a FateWorseThanDeath. But then her true love Heather -- who underwent this trope back in the season opener "The Pilot" when she merged with sentient spaceship fuel to become a being capable of time and space travel -- returns to her (having kept track of her all that time) and turns ''her'' into the same thing she is, restoring her to a humanoid form. They set off to travel the universe together, though if Bill ever wants to be an ordinary human again all she has to do is ask and Heather will oblige her.
