** Captain Smoker gets an interesting introductory scene -- a little girl spills her ice cream on him, initially causing him to set his DeathGlare off on her. But rather than snarl at her or KickTheDog he kindly [[PetTheDog offers to buy her a new one]]. This establishes him as a more morally complex character than many of the other Marine characters in ''One Piece'' who doesn't adhere to the Marine's "Absolute Justice" doctrine, and hence mainly serves as a WorthyOpponent later on for the crew.

* Taiga, a grown woman, takes childlike glee in pranking Shirou by switching the house's sauce bottles.
* Rin [["PragmaticHero wasting"]], in her words, a stockpile of powerful magic (that was a gift from her father, no less) to save the life of an innocent caught in the crossfire of the Holy Grail War. Heart of gold, that girl.

** And then there's the suicide bomber, Nagisa. He executes the plan by first going up and trying to stab Korosensei first, and then when he blocks, he ''hugs'' Korosensei with a grenade around his neck. [[spoiler: This foreshadows his talent for assassination and his eventual modus operandi when executing an assassination.]]

* The ''[[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Heaven's Feel]]'' manga:
** Rider, a tall, elegant magical being, is summoned into the mortal world with much pomp and ceremony...and she immediately turns away from her summoner to examine the hurt, naked girl collapsed on the floor. Later she asks the girl's name, despite Shinji's insistence that she is worthless and irrelevant to Rider's duty.

* Precia Testarossa's first scene in ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' involves her [[EvilMatriarch sadistically whipping her daughter]] [[TheWoobie Fate]] for not bringing her enough [[MineralMacguffin Jewel Seeds]]. Say hello to the BigBad of season 1, and by far ''the'' cruelest villain of the series.

* In ''{{Anime/Mai-Otome}}'', Nina's introduction involves her getting a drink as a gift from some admirers among the passengers of the sand ship. A desperately thirsty Arika then runs into her, spilling part of the drink on her and gulping down what's left, resulting in her adoptive father getting a look at her panties and [[DaddysGirl her]] being mortified.

** From the same series, you have [[EnsembleDarkhorse Wolfgang]] [[NiceGuy Grimmer]], whose first major interaction with another character is to offer his shoes to a kid whose shoes were stolen by some [[KidsAreCruel bullies]], neatly demonstrating both how [[Cloudcuckoolander eccentric]] and what a [[FriendToAllLivingThings nice guy]] Grimmer is.
