* '''Lampshaded''': When Bob Ascends, a GenreSavvy character waves and shouts, trying to get the attention of the [[TouchedByVorlons aliens taking him]] so they'll take him too.

* '''Played For Drama''': Glowing lights. Alice mourns [[GenreBlind even if she really should know better]]. [[EvilLaugh Mad, cackling laughter]] at Bob's [[AGodAmI newfound power]].

** [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence Ascending is entirely possible]]... but Bob doesn't want to. So he doesn't.

* '''Deconstructed''': Bob Ascends. His friends still grieve for him, because they may know he's Ascended but it's hard to believe, and they miss him because they don't get to see him anymore or know what he's doing. If he does come back, he now believes wholeheartedly in BlueAndOrangeMorality and/or is now [[BewareTheSuperman dangerous]]. If it's too easy to Ascend, [[ReligionOfEvil the wrong people may do it]].
* '''Reconstructed''': Bob's friends miss him, but he leaves mementoes for them now and then and pops up to offer solace in times of need. A need to BewareTheSuperman is hinted at, but Bob ultimately does the right thing despite [[AGodAmI the lure of power]], or his actions actually were [[OmniscientMoralityLicense serving the greater good]] even though it didn't look that way.



* '''Enforced''': Bob's actor wants off the show. The writers want to leave open the possibility of reusing the character, or just want to give him a dignified, awesome sendoff that completely inverts DroppedABridgeOnHim, so he gets SoapOperaDisease and the main characters manage an EpicHail so that {{Sufficiently Advanced Alien}}s take him back to their planet to convalesce for an unstated amount of time.

* '''Defied''': Bob is waiting for the {{Sufficiently Advanced Alien}}s to come down and help him Ascend. Too bad Alice has been giving him doses of the aliens' WeaksauceWeakness for weeks.

* '''Plotted A Good Waste''': Bob Ascends; it's set up as a big deal, it comes with powers that might or might not give him [[StoryBreakerPower Story Breaker Status]], the audience is left wondering what it will mean for the character and the show... but it's just because this was just the easiest way to [[PutOnABus put him on a bus]], and he's never discussed again.
