** ''Manga/CodenameSailorV'' establishes Minako as not your typical MagicalGirl and a BunnyEarsLawyer when her mascotte Artemis shows up to tell her she's a Magical Girl and she ''kicks him out of the bathroom while calling him a pervert'', then leaves wondering since when cats can talk.

** Andou is shown happily feeding her boyfriend Izayoi sweets, only to then start acting like an antagonistic AlphaBitch to the others. Izayoi ends up throwing a kunai at Asahina, making his personality as being ridiculously protective of Andou clear as well.

* ''[[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.

** Mirajane's moment comes a fair amount of time after her introduction. During the Fantasia arc, when Fried is torturing her brother Elfman and prepares to kill him, Mirajane [[BigSisterInstinct finally overcomes the trauma of losing her younger sister, Lisanna]] and assumes her Satan Soul form. She then [[CurbStompBattle easily defeats Fried]], but after subduing him, spares him, saying that they're part of the same guild and shouldn't be fighting one another. It nicely shows that she's devoted to her siblings, a powerful mage and a kind person at heart.

** Although it's not his first scene, Luck Gandor's establishing moment in the anime comes when he recites the first few lines of EdgarAllanPoe's poem "Spirits of the Dead," and reflects that where previously his fear of death made the poem terrifying to him, now that he is immortal he would no longer be afraid to die if he could.

** The audience gets to know the kind of person [[VillainProtagonist Light]] becomes when we learn that in the time between acquiring the Death Note, and meeting Ryuk, he's already written ''pages'' of names within the Note, knowing that they're all dead by his hand. And then he proclaims his plans to use the Death Note to become [[AGodAmI "God of the New World"]].

Then she excitedly realizes that it's just like an scene in one of her favorite movies. [[GenkiGirl Chisa]] [[{{Badass}} Yukizome]], everybody.

** In ''Future'', Munakata deliberately arrives late to a meeting between Foundation leaders as a way of showing disdain for their commander, and coldly orders the squabbling leaders to act more professional.
** Sakakura beats up a handcuffed man who's been accused of treason ('''not''' proven to have committed it) and has to be called off by other people.

** Tomas reads aloud a letter from an MLS agent to his wife, which Tomas stole after killing the man, and [[KickTheDog derisively refers to it as drivel]]. This nicely establishes how he's one of the nastier antagonists, who makes [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Goryo]] seem like a decent human being in comparison.



** In the scene where Fairy Tail guild master Makarov is introduced, he scolds the members for the huge number of complaints regarding their reckless behaviour that he has received from the council, and ''immediately'' proceeds to burn away all those complaint letters and tells the members not to care about the council.

** In the scene where Fairy Tail guild master Makarov is introduced, he scolds the members for the huge number of complaints regarding their reckless behaviour that he has received from the council, and ''immediately'' proceeds to burn away all those complaint letters and tells the members not to care about the council. Said scene also serves as one for the respective members, establishing some of their quirks- Cana's drinking habit, Loke's womanizing, Gray's stripping and Elfman's obsession with manliness.



** Brandish Mu of the Spriggan 12 is introduced complaining about how the fight between Marin, one of her subordinates, and the Fairy Tail wizards, resulted in the destruction of a food stand she wanted to visit. When Marin complains and insists that she help take care of the Fairy Tail mages, she shrinks him (someone who'd previously been at an advantage against the entire group) and the entire island, showing that she has her quirks, but she's not to be trifled with.



** Maho's moment comes in Episode 5 when she tells Erika to [[spoiler:fly Mako to the hospital so she can see her grandmother]], and justifies her decision by saying that doing so is also part of tankery. This not only shows her kinder side, but also her belief that adherence to a SeriousBusiness ideology of tankery and acts of kindness are not mutually exclusive, especially not when [[spoiler:she is motivated to live up to the expectations for her as Nishizumi Heir out of a desire to allow Miho to live and do tankery her own way]].

* In ''Manga/{{Bokurano}}'', Masaru "Kodama" Kodaka's introduced using a sparkler to burn a crab to death, and when he's called out on it, he replies that it's no different from how humans eat meat. This shows he's not only capable of acts of great cruelty, but also of rationalizing said cruelty.
