The DramaticChaseOpening is more than just a ChaseScene: It's specifically PlayedForDrama, and designed to introduce the good guy and/or the bad guy(s). The circumstances strongly favor the pursuers: The pursued person has no vehicle; the illumination is poor; the weather can be foggy, snowy or raining. If the chase is in the streets, it's often played in a ghetto filled with dark alleys (bonus points if the chase continues in [[AbsurdlySpaciousSewer the sewers]]). The person being chased could be a civilian with an average or bad physical condition. Since it's the beginning of the movie/series and AnyoneCanDie, a BrokenHeel has a stronger effect on the viewer. Visual effects can include {{Chiaroscuro}} to evoke a FilmNoir look and feel.

* ''SeikimatsuOccultGakuin'' begins with an agent being chased by a monster in the middle of the forest under a full moon. The flying monster is about to catch him when he gets to a teleport gate he just requested via cellphone. The teleporter receives... his right arm.

* ''[[Literature/MaximumRide The Angel Experiment]]'' opens this way, with Max getting chased by Erasers (half-wolf, super-strong men). Turns out it's AllJustADream.

* ''{{Mnemosyne}}'' [[RRatedOpening opens]] with Rin, wearing nothing but an unbuttoned dress shirt ([[{{Meganekko}} and glasses]]), being chased over the streets, a stairwell, and a rooftop before finally getting killed by Laura. This is used to establish both Rin's {{immortality}} and the [[{{Gorn}} gory]] [[InterplayOfSexAndViolence and]] [[{{Fanservice}} sexy]] style of the series.

(Note that this trope '''does not apply''' when the chase is a vehicle pursuit, i.e. the StarWars: A New Hope beginning pursuit. That belongs to a different category.)
