* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' has an opening that involved a character's belief that the Avatar was still alive somewhere, with her narrating. This opening lasted for one episode before she found Aang, the new Avatar, about halfway through the first episode. Starting with #2, it kept the newer opening with some minor edits, seeing as the narrating character now knows of the Avatar's existence. It then fails this trope completely, as Katara continues to say "Aang is a long way from rescuing anybody," even after he has rescued many people and cities and even a king or two. She even says this at the beginning of the final episode, when Aang is ''in the middle of a fight'' to save the world.
* The intro to ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' has a shot of the team that varies depending on which members the Avengers have at the episode's start.
* With the start of a new season of ''WesternAnimation/TheBackyardigans'', some clips of the opening, previewing certain episodes of the previous season, are changed to preview episodes of the actual season.

** The opening of ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' showed [[RealityWarper Alien X]] in silhouette until after his introduction in the season 1 finale "[[Recap/Ben10AlienForceS1E13XEqualsBenPlus2 X = Ben + 2]]". Though Alien X's actual appearance is just that of his silhouette [[StarSpangledSpandex pasted over a space background]].

As the name suggests, this is when the TitleSequence or closing credits of a series are slowly altered over the course of its run. This is a way to quickly let the audience know what part of the series they're watching, by updating or replacing scenes to reflect changes that have happened over the past season/arc. This is also a popular way of avoiding a SpoilerOpening for more plot-driven shows, usually mysteries, by having major characters who haven't been introduced or [[ChekhovsGunman background characters with hidden importance]] initially being {{si|nisterSilhouettes}}lhouettes or not appearing at all.

*** Seasons two and three have each ending be a different part of the vocal ending, which produces [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2F8HvKqnp5s a full song when played back-to-back.]]

** The title sequence [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxnlVCkYtJ0 changes about halfway through the show's first season]]. The second intro shows Steven as a more accepted member of the team, rather than a TagAlongKid, as well as alludes to Connie's greater involvement in the Crystal Gems.

** Creator/CartoonNetwork / {{Toonami}}'s openings did not follow this format and always kept the first step of the Evolving Credits as the opening for that season.
