* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', the first confrontation with a villain features Ed announcing that he's going to show Cornello why he's a third-rate charlatan nowhere near the Elrics' level. At the end of Chapter 107, after [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu punching the crap out of an]] EldritchAbomination [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu that just ate God]], he tells him to get up because "it's time you learned why you're not in our league!"

* This is done somewhat in ''[[VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai]]'', though not at the very beginning and end. In Matsuribayashi-hen, we see Takano Miyo walking through the woods in the rain, trying to escape from her {{Orphanage of Fear}}. In the last episode, she's again walking through the rain in the woods, this time running from her former subordinates who've turned against her. It also clearly shows her missing a shoe in both scenes, in case the audience didn't put it together.
