* ''Videogame/SpecOpsTheLine'' opens with a helicopter gunner section before the scene turns into a short flashback, and beginning of the story proper. [[spoiler: Later when the game turns surreal as a result of Walker's SanitySlippage, you play this helicopter gunner section, and Walker said how he's done this before.]]

* Pretty much universal in Film/JamesBond movies.

* Pretty much universal in Film/JamesBond movies. Sometimes the initial action sequence has [[BatmanColdOpen no relevance at all]] to the main plot, and sometimes they turn out, sometimes only towards the end of the film, to have been important to it. Subverted as early as the second film, ''Film/FromRussiaWithLove'', in which the Action Prologue turns out to introduce TheDragon rather than Bond.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' jumps into the action with the Protagonist trying to escape from a casino, showing off the LeParkour, a bit of the [[StealthBasedGame stealth mechanic]], and a short fight. Then the Protagonist gets captured and arrested, and the majority of the game is spent explaining to the interrogating prosecutor HowWeGotHere, jumping back six months to when the Protagonist first came to Tokyo.
