** 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.

** Spike's very first scene in [["Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS2E3SchoolHard School Hard]]" is smashing into a "Welcome to Sunnydale" sign in his car and strutting out wearing a leather coat and Music/SidVicious mannerisms. He proceeds to march up to the current villains all vamped out, OffhandBackhand one of them and [[BadassBoast boast about how he can solve their problems for them]]... and then at the sight of his [[IllGirl ill girlfriend]], immediately take off the vamp face and insist that she should be resting. [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes He then gives her his jacket without hesitation when she complains of cold.]] Establishes his character well... but then at the end of the episode [[MakeWayForTheNewVillains he kills the previous season's Chosen One villain and his prophecy devoted mooks saying that from now on there would be less ritual and more fun which sets him up as the new]] BigBad and his role of subverting the traditional ancient villain behavior.

*** Jack Harkness's first line in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E8TheEmptyChild The Empty Child]]" is "Excellent bottom." ... While staring at Rose Tyler's ass through binoculars, as she dangles thousands of feet in the air from a rope tied to a barrage balloon. His fellow soldier thinks the line is aimed at him, to which Jack responds by patting the guy's bottom before setting out to go rescue Rose.

** The eponymous Sherlock has a show-stopping one when he first meets [[TheWatson John]] in ''A Study in Pink.'' It is, naturally, a startlingly accurate analysis of John and his background after having known the man for [[SherlockScan all of two minutes]].

His appearance has him [[spoiler: masquerade as "Jim from IT", the [[TransparentCloset obviously gay]] boyfriend of Molly which retrospectively shows how capable he is at being HiddenInPlainSight]], while his second appearance has him introduce himself while holding John hostage with a suicide-vest, being alternatively affable and menacing, in addition to establishing him as a complete sociopath and Sherlock's EvilCounterpart.

** Irene Adler gets an particularly memorable one. The audience sees her debating a variety of dresses to wear for her eventual run-in with Sherlock, only to be sitting completely ''naked'' when he finally does show up. In addition to establishing her as TheTease, it shows her as smart enough [[GenreSavvy to realise ]]that by giving him absolutely nothing to read, she could completely throw off his SherlockScan altogether. Furthermore, when they're later held hostage and Sherlock is forced to figure out the code her safe at gunpoint, he does so because she ''knew'' that he'd [[CovertPervert size her up]], the code being her measurements.

*** The Fourth Doctor's bizarre choices for new outfits in "Robot". It establishes him as [[CloudCuckooLander completely loopy]] and with an [[HumansThroughAlienEyes alien attitude towards humanity]], but note also that the outfits he chooses are 1) [[HornyVikings a Viking]] (e.g. a warrior whose tactic is to land a ship somewhere, burn everything down and leave) 2) a King (a noble, similar to a Lord) and a 3) a ridiculous [[CommediadellArte Pierrot]] clown with [[SadClown tears painted on his cheeks]]. This pretty much sums up each side of the Fourth Doctor's personality.
*** The Sixth Doctor's first line being a bit of pure snark directed at his companion.
*** The Ninth Doctor's first line is "Run!", which pretty much sums up the entire show in a single word.

** Similarly, each incarnation of the Master receives their own Establishing Character Moment, though due more to the length of time between appearances than the disparity of the portrayals. Examples include Roger Delgado's immortal line "I am usually referred to as the Master.

Anthony Ainley's ECM doesn't even involve lines - it's his signature [[EvilLaugh sinister cackle]] during "Logopolis".
