* ''Film/{{Mindhunters}}'': The film opens with two FBI agents investigating a serial killer's lair looking to save a girl he kidnapped, only to be killed in a firefight with the killer's accomplice. Turns out it was a training scenario by the academy when the lights turn on--which they failed completely, missing every clue that there was a second culprit.

->''"Bond just kind of groans. You see, itís not his lung thatís been punctured, but rather his ego, because this was all just a training exercise. Ah yes, the training exercise, a reliable Bond fake-out...I can only conclude that James Bond actually murders people for training."''

* The [[UnwinnableTrainingSimulation Kobayashi Maru]] scene from the beginning of ''Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan''.



* The intro to ''Film/TheSumOfAllFears''.
* Appropriately enough, the beginning of ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'' turns out to be a Danger Room scenario.
* [[PlayedForLaughs Played for]] [[BlackComedy (dark) laughs]] in ''Film/SpaceTruckers''. While the opening scene where a KillerRobot attacks a MegaCorp's base was just a demonstration for the boss, this particular [[CorruptCorporateExecutive executive is so corrupt]] they used real weapons and real {{Mooks}}, all of whom are gruesomely slaughtered by the KillerRobot.

* The ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' episode "Dark Frontier" used this trope pretty much exactly, with Tuvok, Janeway, Seven, and B'Elanna on the holodeck practicing a raid on a borg cube.
* The second-to-last episode of Season 4 of ''Series/TheWire'' opens with an armed Michael Lee being chased through an abandoned warehouse by a similarly armed Chris Partlow and Snoop Pearson. Just when Michael gets the drop on Chris and shoots him in the chest, it's revealed that all three of them are actually carrying paintball guns, and that Chris and Snoop are training Michael for his new job as a soldier for the Stanfield Organization.

This is similar to The BatmanColdOpen, only it's used [[TheTeam for teams]], particularly the Comicbook/XMen. Usually depicted in a training room situation, this trope often sees a team practicing for combat, using [[AttackPatternAlpha various strategies barked out]] by their [[StandardizedLeader Strait-Laced Leader]]. The scene is designed to have each member show off their particular abilities--be they mutant powers, or cool gadgetry or weaponry--as well as [[EstablishingCharacterMoment reveal some aspect of each member's personality]] through short quips and pithy comments.
