Instantly, Pokemon's team rocket comes to mind when I think of characters blasting off after losing a battle, just to become a twinkle in the skytvtropes.

However, it has become rather popular in lots of shows!

Luffy blasting Alvida Off If you're a man, fly to the heavens and become a star!

I'd like to know what was the first anime that featured characters blasting off and if possible, whether or not the first instance of this was in Anime?

    TV Tropes is neither complete nor accurate. As far as accuracy, they're somewhere between a random forum and some blowhard's blog, not as good as Wikipedia but better than your crazy uncle who believes Elvis is an alien princess.
