* In the penultimate episode of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', ComicBook/{{Darkseid}} has been resurrected by Lex Luthor (it was an accident). Since his death, a civil war has been raging on Apokalips as to who would take his place. Just as the final battle is about to take place, Darkseid immediately puts a stop to the war by making a literal explosive entrance of epic proportions. Without him even saying a word, everyone from both sides immediately redeclares allegiance to him without a single protest. [[EvilOverlord Darkseid Is indeed.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheMagicSchoolBus'': Ms. Frizzle has a tendency to do this, showing up in various episodes by hang gliding in, hopping in on a pogo stick, riding an inflatable alligator on a wave out of the closet and zipping into frame from offscreen.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** Princess Luna's entrance in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E4LunaEclipsed "Luna Eclipsed"]]. She comes in on a Batmobile-looking chariot drawn by pegasi with wing armor and helmet crests that look like bat wings, wearing a BlackCloak and accompanied by DramaticThunder. She does an awesome drop from the chariot and dramatically flips the hood off her head. Finally, her cloak dissolves into bats. Because of this, many Bronies now refer to her as "Princess Luna, '''''Princess of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BsEwY7L9GHg F-ING METAL!!!]]'''''"
** In "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E24TheManeAttraction The Mane Attraction]]", pony pop star [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jiaXZTqqrpc Countess Coloratura shows up]] on a palanquin carried by four backup dancer stallions, on a throne adorned with her cutie mark inside a gem-shaped structure that opens like a flower, with appropriate light show and background music. Subtle.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' episode "Temple of Juatchadoon", Doofenshmirtz makes a big entrance, only for Perry the Platypus to make a BIGGER entrance.
-->'''Doofenshmirtz:''' Perry the Platypus, you totally one-upped my entrance!
* This has been {{Lampshaded}} on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', when [[TheScrooge Mr. Burns]] makes his first appearance before his new Indian employees at the outsourced power plant. He comes out of a basket to dancing like a charmed snake, with appropriate [[BuffySpeak snake-charmy]] music. Smithers asks him why he wanted to make an entrance like that, to which he replies, "[[LargeHam I'm a showman!]]"

** In the [[Anime/SailorMoon 90's series]] she may not have [[spoiler: cut Zoicite to pieces]], but it was still rather nice. Zoicite was giving the Senshi and Tuxedo Kamen a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech as he had the girls trapped and Kamen was seriously wounded... but then Venus [[ShutUpHannibal shut him up]], [[KirkSummation told the heroes to not give up]], undid the girls' trap with her CrescentBeam, and then jumped in to join the group.

* Wagner's ''[[TheRingOfTheNibelung Die Walküre]]'' features one of the most dramatic entrances ever seen on a stage: ''The Ride of the Valkyries''. Maiden goddesses riding chargers and singing about battle practically barge onto the stage (in the best way possible) to the sound of Wagner's most universally recognizable and bombastic piece. Hojotoho!

* 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.
