** [[EvilMatriarch Maya]]'s characterization is foreshadowed by the utter horror ''her own niece'' feels at the prospect of asking Maya for [[DealWithTheDevil 'help']].

* While it may not appear this way at first, the initial appearance of Priscilla in ''{{Manga/Claymore}}'' sets up a lot of what will happen later. We hear that she's a new Claymore who's recently ranked # 2...and then she's late, and when she does show up she [[{{Dojikko}} trips and falls over]] while apologizing for being late because of some Yoma. Just as the other Claymores and the audience are prepared to write her off, we look around and see that the alley she just came out of is ''covered from top to bottom with dead Yoma'', which she just plowed through, ''by herself'', without alerting the others. This establishes Priscilla's naive and innocent nature while giving a glimpse of just how ridiculous her powers are, so it's no surprise that she later becomes what may be the most powerful awakened being '''''ever'''''.

** Thirty-five guards and a [[PluckyComicRelief scatter-brained]] {{Dojikko}} secretary, who had in the previous scene received a little character building, making this an [[AnyoneCanDie establishing moment for the]] ''[[AnyoneCanDie show]]'' [[AnyoneCanDie as well.]]

** [[spoiler: [[InvincibleVillain Kaido.]]]]His first act is to jump off a sky island, 10.000 meters in the air, [[IncrediblyLamePun crashing]] the [[spoiler: alliance-party of three of the Supernovas]], sinking one of their ships, and devastating the place, from the impact alone. He complains he didn't die, and declared his intent for war with [[spoiler: [[PsychopathicManchild Doflamingo]]]], without even knowing of his predicament. [[spoiler: He was bored.]]

** Post-CharacterDevelopment example in ''[[Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid ViVid]]''. Lutecia's first scene is her hamming it up while boasting to her familiar about all the modifications they've made to their house in anticipation for her friends coming to visit (complete with maniacal laughter and MilkingTheGiantCow), letting us know very quickly that this is ''not'' the same {{Emotionless|Girl}} DarkMagicalGirl from [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers four years prior]].

** Itona manages to make clear both his oddiness and his overwhelming desire for strength and victory in the first five seconds on-page. [[spoiler:By bursting through a wall and sitting at his desk without breaking a sweat, while declaring his superiority over said wall]].

* ''[[LightNovel/TheIrregularAtMagicHighSchool The Honor Student at Magic High School]]'' opens with Miyuki calmly striding through a burning building as she heals the people evacuating it. Her internal monologue is concerned less with the pyrokinetic terrorist trying to kill everyone than the fact that his attack completely ''ruined'' the daytrip she had planned.
