** Chaka starts off as a young black teenager sharing a room with his unpleasant older brother, and turning into a pretty girl...turning into a mutant...having to leave home and go to a SuperheroSchool...and he's thrilled to death about every bit of it.

** Chaka starts off as a young black teenager teenage boy sharing a room with his unpleasant GangstaWannabe older brother, except he's not only becoming a mutant and having to go to a SuperheroSchool but [[GenderBender turning into a pretty girl...turning into a mutant...having girl as well]], because this setting is basically ''ComicBook/XMen'' with the gay rights allegory promoted from subtext to leave home and go to a SuperheroSchool...and he's thrilled to death an actual plot point... And '''[[{{Transsexual}} she]]''' is [[JumpedAtTheCall absolutely goddamn stoked about every bit of it.]] She also [[SassyBlackWoman loudly and angrily calls her brother out on his bullshit.]]

** Likewise, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's SadClown-ness started with him being DrivenToSuicide at a dumb song in ''{{Cartoon All Stars|ToTheRescue}}''.

Added DiffLines:

* From ''Roleplay/DinoAttackRPG'':
** When he first appeared, Montoya initially came off more or less seemed just another petty crook looking for money, acting casual and occasionally joking with his partners. However, the brief glimpse into his personal life and his subsequent calling out of his own partner for refusing to tip a waitress quickly showed how likeable a guy he really was and turned him into an EnsembleDarkhorse.
** Rotor probably got his establishment as a rough and cold-minded but extremely competent leader when he lead the initially assaults on the XERRD Fortress, considering he got to show off his talents rather nicely.
** Cabin's introductory scene more or less established her as a realist, though she had a few later moments that showed off another side.
** Pharisee arguably got his when we first met him, coldly looking over the case files of several controversial individuals and judging them each harshly. It certainly sets up several things, among them his brutal beat down of Montoya.
** Unintentionally subverted with [[TheScrappy Trigger]], whose introductory scenes attempted to establish him as a {{Badass}} and an expert in the Maelstrom, but only caused people to see him as a complete {{Jerkass}} and an idiot.
** Sarah Bishop's [[spoiler: rather violent NoHoldsBarredBeatdown of Rotor, not to mention bludgeoning Cabin in the face when she tried to break it up]] should give you a pretty good idea of her mental state by this point.
** A simple example, but Pierce was first introduced as a doctor helping Zenna after she sustained serious injuries. [[TheMedic That should give you a pretty good idea of his role in all this]].

* The Emperor's first lines in ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'' pretty much tell you all you have to know about him.
-->'''''ABOUT FUCKING TIME. I HAVE SO MANY THINGS TO COMPLAIN ABOUT.'''''
* [[BigBad Mecha Sonic's]] first appearance in ''WebAnimation/SuperMarioBrosZ'' involved him '''vaporizing''' a poor Goomba at point blank range to retrieve a Chaos Emerald. That's probably the ''nicest'' thing he's done in the series so far.



* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'':
** The Yellow trailer acts as Yang's. She walks casually into a BadGuyBar, uses a GroinAttack to get information, laughingly flirts with the same guy she was attacking seconds before, then [[BloodKnight punches him in the face]] for no particular reason. She then fights off the guy, his mooks, and leaves, greeting Ruby outside the bar.
** Ruby herself has one in the first episode, in which she reads a magazine with her hood up while listening to music as a robbery is taking place. When one of the {{Mooks}} approach her she throws him out a window, clicks off her music, and pulls out her scythe rifle, fighting them off and chasing after the leader. Once a Huntress intervenes she immediately squees and asks for her autograph.
** Glynda Goodwitch steps in to defend a teenage would-be hero, calmly stops bullets with an elaborate magical shield, nearly shoots down a mob boss's airship with her magic, and then sternly tells the girl not to get into trouble again. This minute and a half tells us that Glynda's a badass sorceress, protector of the peace, stern yet fair, and more than worthy of her position as Team Good's lieutenant.
** Episode 2 has several in quick succession. [[note]]Given the show's short runtime, the writers pretty much ''had'' to do this.[[/note]][[AcademicAlphaBitch Weiss]] [[IceQueen Schnee]] is introduced harshly berating [[WideEyedIdealist Ruby]] for an innocent mistake (and, incidentally, [[SpoiledBrat boasting about the Schnee family's status and wealth]]). Blake hears the commotion and closes a book that she's reading, walking over to defend Ruby and [[SoapboxSadie scornfully pointing out]] the history Weiss' family has of slavery and FantasticRacism. Weiss leaves and Ruby tries to thank Blake, only to find that she's already walking away. [[NiceGuy Jaune]] helps Ruby up and the two bond over how [[{{Adorkable}} awkward]] they feel.
** In Episode 3, [[CloudCuckooLander Nora]] is introduced as an playful, fiercely energetic girl...whose response to [[TrainingFromHell being catapulted into a forest teeming with ferocious monsters]] is to smile gleefully.
** Coco casually walks up to a hulking Grimm and says, "You destroyed my favourite clothing store. PrepareToDie." Then she beats it up with her handbag. Which is also a [[GatlingGood minigun]].
** Volume 3 finally gives Qrow a proper introduction, drunk off his ass and complaining that the Vytal Tournament is a televised mess. [[spoiler: With the reveal that [[BigBad Cinder]] is manipulating the fights, he's right on the money]].
* Intentionally tactless in ''WebAnimation/SenpaiClub'': "My name is Tsumiki Domen. I'm 15 years old. My birthday is February 14! Beef bowls are my favorite food, and my blood type is A!" All in the first few seconds of the series.

** Corliss' second line:
--->She gasps excitedly. "You're from Central High, right?!"
**Gavin:
--->One of them tenses, his shoulders shooting up. He turns around slowly, his face downturned but eyes glaring up at Corliss'.
**Nara, when she gets Corliss off your back:
--->"Hey, no problem, that's what best friends are for! I can tell you're stressed out."
**When Micah explodes on Page 14:
--->"Look, you don't even have any friends besides Nara, and all you do is hole up with her in this house! You need to get out there and make more friends, and here's the perfect, lowest-risk opportunity to do it! You're a loner, a loner! And you've been this way ever since Mom died, and I'm-" he uses a passion word I never thought he'd use- "sick of it!"
**Principal Wyatt, when she talks to you about the dream scenery on page 24.
**When Iris leads the group of actors your way on Page 27.
