* Escamillo, the toreador from ''Theater/{{Carmen}}'', enters from a distance with a large chorus singing about how great he is. When he arrives onstage, ''he'' then proceeds to sing about how great he is in a song that is as flamboyant, pompous and likable as he is, complete with lots of percussion, dramatic descriptions of bullfighting and possibly the catchiest tune in this catchiest of operas.

The absolute most important things in the entrance are that the entrance itself has to be loud, it has to be overly dramatic, it has to catch the attention of all characters present and it has to be ''cool''. There are many other tropes that can help achieve this, including, but not limited to...

While many {{Dynamic Entr|y}}ies are part of this trope, not all are. A dynamic entry is an entrance plus violence. This trope is an entrance plus drama/awesome (violence optional).

* In ''Fanfic/TheWitchOfTheEverfree'', Sunset is in the habit of doing these when she enters Ponyville for parties. She uses illusion magic to lower the ambient light, make her voice reverberate, and otherwise make her entrances far more dramatic than they would otherwise be.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''/''Manga/OnePiece'' crossover ''Fanfic/AGemInTheRough'', the Crystal Gems tend to do this quite a bit. Their most notable entrance would be at the end of "The Seastone Cage:" Steven and the Straw Hats are captured by Crocodile and Sanji has just been knocked out by Mr. 3. Just when Crocodile is confident that nothing will stand in his way, Mr. 3 reveals that he understands the price of what failure in Baroque Works means and has brought partners who are most eager to talk to him. With that, the ceiling came crashing down and said partners adopted a battle stance, ready to take on the Shishibukai.

* King Solomon makes one in the third chapter of ''Literature/SongOfSongs'' in Literature/TheBible, coming on the scene carried on a litter with sixty men surrounding him, armed with swords, and with incense wafting in the air.

* The ''Cleopatra'' example below under films is parodied with the ''Comicbook/{{Asterix}}'' version of Cleo, who ''always'' makes an entrance like this, even when she's "just popping in incognito".

* Miss Piggy in ''Franchise/TheMuppets'' is fond of these:
** Her arrival at the farmhouse in ''Film/AMuppetFamilyChristmas'' is on a dog sled driven by Doc dressed as a Mountie. Doc himself is at a loss to explain where any of this came from. (The last time we checked in on Piggy, she was trying to get her car out of a ditch.) Kermit just says that Piggy always knows how to make an entrance.
** In ''Film/MuppetTreasureIsland'', her appearance as "Benjamina Gunn" is heralded by native drums, dancers, chanting statues, and a ''real elephant'', before she emerges in slow motion from a floral howdah. "''BOOM''-Shakalaka!"
** Both of these are then immediately undercut by her [[{{Slapstick}} falling over]]: in ''Family Christmas'' she slips on the RunningGag icy patch, and in ''Treasure Island'' she trips over her pet anteater, Flaubert.

* On Series/TheChase, this is standard issue for a Chaser. After each Cash Builder round, they will come out from behind a corner, and walk across a walkway in a 'C' shaped tunnel, with the studio lighting turning red and orange, giving a flame-like look, as a dramatic jingle plays.
