* The exceptionally long cold opening of ''Film/SuperTroopers'' starts off with two of the troopers toying with and eventually busting some stoners, then getting drawn into a high-speed chase [[spoiler: by another trooper playing a prank on them]].

* ''KaitouSaintTail'', who occasionally opens stealing a priceless artifact and getting away, leaving her "victim" to cry out without thinking about how hard ''he'' worked to steal it in the first place and being heard by her detective pursuers.

* ''ChronoCrusade'' kicks off with Rosette and Chrono doing an exorcism job in a haunted ship... So the audience understands that in this 'verse "exorcism" involves less use of holy symbols and more use of [[MoreDakka guns]].

* ''SuperhumanSamuraiSyberSquad'' frequently opened in the middle of a battle with a [[MonsterOfTheWeek monster-of-the-week sort of construct]], which sometimes led to the villains immediately coming up with a new plan (and the true monster for this episode) to avenge the thwarting of the old one.

* The first couple of episodes of ''TrinityBlood'' don't do anything for the story except introduce some of the main characters and establishing the conflict between TheChurch and the vampires.

* ''TigerAndBunny'', which is a show about comic book-styled superheroes, opens with the entire main cast having turns at trying to catch a group of escaping bank robbers. * ''SummerWars'' has, in Kenjis long voyage with Natsuki at the beginning of the film, several scenes with King Kazam kicking all kinds of ass as a then background event or action opener that turns out to have shown off how capable the user of King Kazma is when we find out who he is, making this some kind of Batman Cold Open.

* ''Anime/CowboyBebop: TheMovie'' opens with bounty hunters Spike and Jet apprehending a few criminals robbing a liquor store. ** The series did this (at least) once, too, with a plane hijacking.

** Any late 80s/early 90s B-martial arts or action film will introduce the hero in a bar by having a couple of drunk, usually pool-playing rednecks, get in his face despite his desire to be left alone (or alternatively, they harass an attractive waitress or try to rob the place). Whereupon he easily trounces them.

* ''Film/CloakAndDagger'' begins with Jack Flack on an espionage mission, then reveals that it's all been the plot of game being played by our kid hero Davey, who soon gets embroiled in a real spy caper.

* ''TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' often begins this way, with Spider-Man mid-battle with criminals. * About half the episodes of ''TheRealGhostbusters'' begin with the Ghostbusters in the middle of busting one or more ghosts. You can pretty much count on these ghosts to have nothing to do with the main plot, and they are often the same ghosts used in crowd scenes or cold opens in other episodes, since the animators worked from a small pool of stock ghosts. But every so often they ''do'' figure in to the main plot later in the episode when they're released from the containment unit by the ghost-of-the-week or phenomenon-of-the-week.

* ''Literature/TheSwordEdgedBlonde'' begins with the protagonist being hired for a relatively typical assignment: retrieve a [[RebelliousPrincess teenage aristocratic runaway]] who has fallen in with the wrong crowd in a rough border town. This serves to show the kind of unglamorous thing that he ''normally'' does, before the book moves on to the main plot (which involves royal infanticide and goddesses.)
