** Also, on his first mission out with Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, Todd Alquist [[spoiler:murders a child in cold blood just because the child saw them (and Walt said earlier that no one can know they were there).]]


Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/TheShield'', the Pilot is one big establishing moment for Vic Mackey. We get to see how he polices and gets results, even if [[spoiler:he has to shoot another cop to save his own skin]].

* ''Series/KamenRiderFourze'': In the 1st episode, one character receives a letter from a girl that seems to like him, but throws it in the river before even bothering to read it. We're then introduced to Gentaro Kisaragi, the main protagonist, who proceeds to tell him not to reject an offer of kindness before readng it, jump off the bridge into the river to get the letter back, and yell happily about hurting both legs. It establishes Gentaro's love of friendship, self-sacrifice, and utter stupidity that loops back around to CrazyAwesome in just a few neat seconds.

* ''Series/FakingIt'': The first thing we see Karma doing is pretending to be blind for popularity's sake, presenting her as someone obsessed with popularity (to the point where she ropes her best friend Amy into pretending to be lesbians after being [[MistakenForGay mistaken for lesbians]] by the most popular guy in school). Amy's moment comes at the end of the pilot...with a nervous AsideGlance telling us that kiss she just shared with Karma was ''way'' more than pretend for her...

* ''Series/LegendOfTheSeeker'': The first time we see Cara, she criticizes and subtly mocks Darken Rahl to his face for the failed efforts to stop Richard, saying he would have had him long ago if he'd sent her. Rahl tolerates this and also appears to appreciate her spirits.

** Kuroto Dan appears in Episode 1, when he's revealed to be [[spoiler: Kamen Rider Genm, the no-nonsense threat that's been going after the others for the past few episodes]] in Episode 5, he has one line. And it tells you all the basics about who he really is.

* ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'': While Taiga Hanaya debuts in the first episode, it's not until episode 3 where his character becomes apparent. After an infected kid's turned into a monster that towers over Taiga, his response is to calmly transform and knock the protagonist away when he tries to help him fight it. And whereas the two heroes so far have shown to need to use quite a bit of effort to break monsters of this type, Taiga needs only a few seconds and he's done. But after the patient's freed and still stressed out, Taiga does nothing to help him, and continues fighting the monsters. In a few minutes, the viewers learn that not only is Taiga [[SmugSuper skilled,]] but that he's not concerned with anyone else.

** The Shadows get a good one too. Up until their arrival, the recurring villains have been a group of raiders: simple, money-oriented pirates with considerably less armament than any actual military. Then we discover that they have a lot better equipment than we thoughts, and can fight right up against the station and get away with it, and have high-ranked contacts in the Centauri government, and are smart enough to avoid overreaching, and are about to double or triple their threat level... And then a Shadow Battlecrab shimmers into existence next to them -- breaking the established rules of how you reach normal space -- and wipes them out in one shot. With enough precision to leave a piece of jewelry inside the ship intact.
