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) quickly. 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.

The DramaticChaseOpening doesn't necessarily need to the the first scene in a movie or series. It can be delayed a couple of scenes so we get a brief intro on the victim or hero.
