* ''VideoGame/LegacyOfGokuII'' uses a "flash-forward" version, taking full and clever advantage of a plot point in the show... the alternate future where the androids have destroyed everything. You play as Trunks, at a fairly high level (but unable to go Super Saiyan yet). And future (BadAss) Gohan runs you through the basics of your power and Ki Attacks, including, as mentioned, a failed attempt at going Super Saiyan. Then you're released to chase after Gohan just in time to see him killed by the Androids. Then in the cutscene, Trunks goes Super Saiyan in a rage, the screen flashes white, and you end up in the present, as Gohan, at Level 1, with none of the power or Ki abilities he and Trunks had in the future.

** ''Forza Horizon'' starts in the middle of a cruise towards an event, driving a SRT Viper [[FinalBossPreview against Darius Flynt and his Ferrari 599XX]]. You then wake up from your daydream in your old VW Corrado (it's actually a fast car, though the mechanic [[InformedAttribute implies]] that it's [[TheAllegedCar seen better days]]).

* ''VideoGame/AgarestSenki2'' has Weiss facing off against Summerill, servant of the dark god Chaos. He at this point is level 99 and equipped with the Werdefahrt, a very powerful sword. You get to own Summerill in your first fight. After which, a cutscene happens and you get flung over to who knows where at that point. When Weiss recovers, he gets reduced to level one, and you can't equip his sword anymore for some weird reason, not to mention he now has amnesia. [[spoiler: Turns out, there's a lot more to that story later on.]]

** It opens with the player taking control of the level 2000 "{{Badass}} freakin' overlord" (yes, that's his actual title) Zetta (who also has the best stats in the game) during the tutorial battle, who in the first subsequent cutscene [[MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds ruins his entire life by accident]] and is rendered unusable as a playable character, despite still being the main character. [[spoiler:When appearing -- in book form -- as a BonusBoss in ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 2|Cursed Memories}}'', he is ''still'' the most powerful overlord in the multiverse]].

** The first level of the Ryusei route lets you play as the best pilot in the game, although he's in the worst unit. He doesn't become permanently playable until the penultimate level. The Kyosuke route is a better example, featuring several levels with the equally {{Badass}} Sanger Zonvolt and his Grungust Type 0, who leave the party for most of the middle of the game. Since both of these guys [[FaceHeelTurn show up as bosses]] in the mean time, it serves as a taste of the ''bad guys''' power as well.

** ''Forza Motorsport 6'' starts off with a race in the Rio de Janeiro street circuit in the 2017 Ford GT. After that you have to choose between a selection of low-tier European and Japanese sports cars.
** ''Horizon 3'' takes this trope UpToEleven: you start off in the Lamborghini Centenario for a drive to the Australian seaside, then has you drive a Baldwin Trophy Truck through the beach, before doing the game's first Showcase event with a Penhall Cholla, before going back to the Centenario again and finally choose your starter car.
