-->'''Rufus Shinra:''' ''That's right. I'll let you hear my new appointment speech...My old man tried to control the world with money. It seems to have been working. The population thought that Shinra would protect them. Work at Shinra, get your pay. If a terrorist attacks, the Shinra army will help you. It looks perfect on the outside. But, I do things differently. I'll control the world with fear. It takes too much to do it like my old man. A little fear will control the minds of the common people. There's no reason to waste money on them.''

* The Nemesis' SpiritualSuccessor Ustanak has a similar appearance in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6''. He appears out of nowhere, spots Jake (his target) and begins to advance, the normally calm and snarky Sherry [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness looses her nerve and shrieks "RUN"]], and Ustanak is ''[[MadeOfIron completely unphased by a massive explosion]]''. '''[[RunOrDie Start running.]]'''

*** At the beginning of the third disc, the battle of Alexandria and Kuja's attempted capture of the eidolon Alexander is interrupted by the arrival of a huge, futuristic airship. Within, a mysterious figure dressed in a [[ManInBlack glistening black exoskeleton and cape]] surveys the scene below; he takes the time to muse in disappointment on Kuja's attempt at interfering with his plans, before casting a spell: minutes later, Alexander dies horribly and Alexandria palace vanishes in a colossal fireball, leaving Kuja upstaged, OutGambitted - and most notably of all, [[HorrifyingTheHorror horrified]] at the fact that ''' ''[[BiggerBad Garland]]'' ''' himself is now after him.

*** After her unassuming introduction at a bar with Zidane, [[LadyOfWar Freya Crescent]] is later seen [[RoofHopping wandering the rooftops]] of Lindblum, apparently lost in thought:
-->The sky looks ominous... Something's about to happen. Sir Fratley, where are you? I need you...

Added DiffLines:

*** Disc 2 manages to establish the character of an entire faction in one short scene: after almost an entire disc of battles with Queen Brahne's mass-produced black mages, the party bumps into another one of them in Conde Petie. Unlike the others, [[TokenHeroicOrc this one appears to be sentient]], and by all appearances, ''he's on a shopping trip''. And when he finally notices the party, he responds not by shouting "KILL!" and pelting them with magic, but by [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere turning tail and running as fast as possible in the opposite direction]].

* ''VideoGame/Doom2016'': Mere seconds after waking up, the Doomguy breaks free of the manacles holding him, backhands a Possessed hard enough to draw blood, then smashes its head into the slab/operating table he's on hard enough to make [[YourHeadASplode Its Head A Splode]]. Even if you've never played any of the previous games, you'll know instantly why he's one of the iconic {{Badass}}es of FPS.

** Irenicus from the second game is first seen torturing the helpless protagonist for the purposes for some research, completely indifferent to their suffering. The whole initial dungeon continues with this theme, and it's accompanied by more than one scene showing his utterly overwhelming magical power as he repels attackers.

** Flowey, an adorable talking flower, pops up to greet you and asks if you're from the surface, then says he will show you how things work. [[MoodWhiplash He then flashes a]] NightmareFace [[MoodWhiplash and promptly tries to kill you]], showcasing that for all his cutesy appearance and manner of speech, he's a ruthless [[TheSociopath sociopath]] who knows just how to manipulate you.
