Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheBackyardigans'': Uniqua establishes her character - and really the entire series - by immediately making it clear that girls are just as capable of being great pirates as boys are, and getting Austin, Pablo, and Tyrone to follow her lead.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'': The first episode to focus on Francine (and the second overall) sees Francine trying to refrain from playing kickball long enough to look especially nice for her school picture, but she is unable to help herself. By the time the picture is taken, she looks scruffy and grungy, while wearing a dress and a relaxed hairstyle.

*** Azula gets another in the same episode. She practices [[ShockAndAwe lightningbending]], and gets the extremely difficult firebending move right on the first try, but one lock of hair is out of place. She gets angry and says "Almost perfect isn't good enough!" [[spoilers: This foreshadows her later VillainousBreakdown, which happens when she is again not quite perfect, and in this case [[MachiavelliWasWrong on something bigger than just a hair]].]]

** Azula's first appearance during Zuko's flashback in "The Storm". All you can guess about her is that she's family by the fact that she's standing next to Iroh, has yellow eyes, and is dressed in very similar robes, but when she's seen ''smiling'' as Zuko gets disfigured, you ''know'' she's going to be trouble whenever she'll show up. When she shows up as a named character it is one of these. We can tell from her first appearance that, as opposed to her sympathetic AntiVillain brother, she is a vicious creature, and that is the truth all the way through the series. We also get a more subtle hint of her vanity when she blows a loose strand of hair out of her face with a peeved look, which only makes her [[spoiler:VillainousBreakdown much later all the more epic]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.

* In ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTVSpecials My Little Pony: Rescue From Midnight Castle]]'', Firefly first appears doing a risky stunt which she crashes. That sets her as the most adventurous and headstrong pony around. Unsurprisingly, she's the one who goes searching for help when [[BigBas Tirek]] appears.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' creator Alex Hirsch pinpoints the gift shop scene towards the end of the episode as being this. [[AdorablyPrecociousChild Dipper]] chooses the pine tree hat due to practicality, since he lost his old one during the events of the episode. Meanwhile, [[GenkiGirl Mabel]] chooses a grappling hook, revealing how unpredictable the character can be.

* The first time we see The Misfits in ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' they're riding into their managers office on [[RuleOfCool guitar-shaped motorcycles]]. They push Jerrica out of the way and then the first song of the series, "Outta My Way", occurs.

* ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'':
** [[AnachronicOrder Chronologically]], the protagonists' responses to receiving the CallToAdventure say a lot about the heroes they eventually become. [[ShrinkingViolet Marinette]] is cautious and self-effacing- she asks a lot of questions about Tikki, and later insists that she's too cowardly to be a good Miraculous-bearer. [[LonelyRichKid Adrien]] doesn't even let Plagg finish explaining before he accepts the call, clearly relishing the chance to break free of his overbearing father.
