** Star's MuggleBestFriend Marco Diaz is introduced assuming he's being called to the principal's office because he's a "bad boy", and being sorely disappointed that the principal wants the school's resident "Safe Kid" to show the new exchange student Star around the school. Marco then rants about how he's tired of being known as "the Safe Kid" [[IResembleThatRemark while steering Star away from various minor hazards]].

* WesternAnimation/{{Archer}} gets his moment near the end of the pilot episode "Mole Hunt" when he [[spoiler:gets an erection at the thought of his mother dying]]. May also double as an EstablishingSeriesMoment.
** Arguably, Cheryl gets hers in Episode 5, when she goes on a long tangent about her disturbing love for fatal erotic asphyxiation. Up until this point, she was shown as being only moderately weird and occasionally baby crazy. this cranked it up to eleven.

** Huey Freeman begins the series by claiming that while he's not a prophet he has had a prophetic dream where he brought a [[WhiteAngloSaxonProtestant whitebread garden party]] to riot with the announcement that "{{Jesus|Christ}} was black, UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan was the Devil, and the government is lying about 9/11". Later in the episode, he attends an actual garden party, and the WASPs there are completely unphased by his Left-Wing rhetoric. This shows that while he is very WiseBeyondHisYears, he's still one kid shouting at a hurricane.

** Gin Rummy is a {{White Gang Banger|s}} [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed mockery]] of DonaldRumsfeld played by Creator/SamuelLJackson. It's not surprising that his first appearance has him saying that "the absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence", a quote said by Rumsfeld in response to no-one finding WMDs in Iraq. When Riley doesn't get what he's saying, he responds with [[ActorAllusion the "Say what again" speech taken from Jackson's character in]] ''Film/PulpFiction''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': Some of the characters get one in the first episode, "Let's Play Prison-Ball":
** Kaeloo remains happy for most of the episodw despite all the chaos going on around her.
** [[TheDitz Stumpy]] takes the term "prison" in "prison-ball" too literally[[note]]Prison-ball is a game similar to dodgeball, except if a player is hit they get sent to a space at the back of the court called a "prison"[[/note]].
** Mr. Cat decides that prison-ball is a fun game because the game involves hitting another person and the other person going to "prison".

* ''MickeyMouse'': Mickey's appearance in ''SteamboatWillie'' shows him whistling and smiling as he steers the boat before being told off by the actual boat captain, Pete. This sets in place his personality as a happy go-lucky yet mischievous mouse.

* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'': The series opens with Rick drunkenly trying to nuke humanity, and then half-heartedly trying to pass it off as a SecretTestOfCharacter when Morty stops him, establishing him as a DitzyGenius and HeroicComedicSociopath. However, we also see that [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes he genuinely cares about Morty]], as he makes sure to save Morty from the explosion so that he could watch, and was planning to save Morty's crush Jessica so that Morty would have someone special to share the moment with.

* ''WesternAnimation/MoralOrel'': In the first episode, Orel hears a bizarrely detailed sermon from Reverend Putty about how it's important to use the gift of life that God gave you, and [[LiteralMinded interprets this to mean that dying is a sin.]] He then proceeds to [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom steal the Necronomicon and raise all the dead in Moralton]], after which Clay chides him... [[SkewedPriorities for taking the clothes off the corpses before raising them]], violating the "commandment" to be ashamed of your body.

* The first episode of ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' was full of this. Some memorable ones were Owen's excitement, Cody's CasanovaWannabe entrance, Leshawna starting a fight with Harold, and Tyler and Bridgette's {{Dojikko}} behavior. Courtney's adherence to rules and order, strategic AlphaBitch status were also partly revealed in the second episode.
