* Season Two of ''{{Series/Daredevil}}'' starts out like this, showing the titular hero beating up a few common criminals. Besides showing how badass he is, the scene also shows how he became part of the day to day life of Hell's Kitchen, as he was mostly unknown through a good chunk of Season One.

** ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' had one where Batman takes on [[spoiler:Scarecrow]], and (though a villainous example) the bank heist at the beginning, (largely) unrelated to SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker's larger schemes over the rest of the movie, but used to show the audience how devious, manipulative and ruthless he is.
** Meanwhile, in ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'', [[spoiler:Bane shows off his extremely organized and loyal army by making them crash a CIA plane just to fake the death of one character. It did have some small effect on the overall plot, but it was mostly a parallel to SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker's introduction.]]

** Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}} does this pretty often in the comics; often, an issue will begin with him trouncing some random [[{{Mooks}} gangsters]] that have nothing to do with the issue's plot.

* The ''SinCity'' miniseries "A Dame To Kill For" opens with the main character spying on an AbusiveBoyfriend (he's a PI) and having to save his mistress from getting killed. This is the main character's introduction and has nothing to do with the main story.

* The series opener of ''TheWire'' begins this way. Detective Jimmy [=McNulty=] is introduced while investigating the murder of a guy named Snotboogie. The little episode makes a statement about the America Dream, a major theme of the series, but the Snotboogie murder itself has nothing to do with the plot of the rest of the season.
