An UnusualEuphemism used to describe a character's death (regardless of whether it has actually occured), where X is a place that exemplifies the deceased's personality, interests or habits.

May or may not be a subtrope of NeverSayDie (depending on the target audience of the work) and, should that be the case, a SisterTrope (albeit more versatile) to HeDidntMakeIt. It may also overlap with NoLongerWithUs (in which case it is almost always PlayedForLaughs) if the character has really gone to some great X in the sky (and this is mistook as an euphemism), or if the character has really died (and others believe that he has gone to the great X in the sky).
