** When we first meet Twilight in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E1MareInTheMoon Friendship is Magic Pt 1]]", she's studying with her friend/assistant Spike, who's trying to get her to relax, and is shown to be uninterested in making friends and a bit insensitive at times. After being sent to Ponyville, she meets the rest of the main cast through a series of these. Pinkie Pie jumps in the air while gasping dramatically and promptly runs away, with no explanation given for [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} her bizarre actions]]. Applejack greets Twilight over-enthusiastically before inviting her to brunch with [[TheClan her large family]]. Rainbow Dash crashes into Twilight and sends her into a mud puddle, tries (and fails) to clean her up with a speed-based stunt, openly laughs at Twilight's resulting messed up hair, proudly declares her ambition to join an elite aerial team, and clears the sky in [[MemeticMutation ten seconds flat]]. Rarity is decorating for the Summer Sun festival, gives Twilight a makeover, and starts gushing over the glamour of Canterlot on learning that's where Twilight is from. Fluttershy is working with small animals and is painfully shy. And Pinkie Pie wasn't scared of Twilight; she just realized that Twilight was new in town and didn't know anyone (yes, ''the second they met''), and left to throw her a welcoming party.

* 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''.

** 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".
