** Not quite. ''Blade'' plays this straight for some episodes past [[spoiler: Leangle's]] debut, properly updating the first opening's visuals to reflect such before they changed the opening altogether. Incidentally, [[spoiler: Mutsuki]] is actually present from the first iteration, right before Tachibana's shot, albeit with him pulling his hat over his face to hide it until his debut as a Rider.


Added DiffLines:

** Series/KamenRiderExAid may be reigning king of this trope in the franchise, constantly making minor aesthetics to reflect plot developments, such as new forms, Riders, character deaths, and [[spoiler: who the current main BigBad is]]. This applies even after the more significant evolution starting episode 25. The most egregious case is the differences between the openings of episodes 36 and 37. The former [[spoiler: reinstates the resurrected and now evil Kiriya, scowling in a black jacket]] into his usual spot. 37, on the other hand, , to reflect the two significant plot developments in the previous episode, immediately changes THAT to show [[spoiler: the revived Kiriya was only a ReverseMole, his personal shot changed again to have him smiling with his usual brown jacket, and is back on the heroes' side. Not to mention the addition of [[GoldenSuperMode Hyper Muteki Ex-Aid]] in the form exhibition.]]

** The ''Side:Despair'' opening changes again starting episode 6. The biggest change is that the formerly light and pastel color palette is much darker, resulting in everyone (sans Nanami) having [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]]. There are several other changes, starting with the question mark being removed from the English phrase "Hello, Hope's Peak High School?." The part showing Kamukura and Hinata has Hinata being only a flickering image within the silhouette of Kamukura's hair, reflecting [[spoiler:his personality having been surgically erased in order for him to become Kamukura.]] Finally, Nanami is seen smiling when she turns around, as opposed to the neutral expression she had in the previous version. There's also the grow-up version of Saionji.

* In ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'', every time someone dies, their clip in the opening sequence and their picture in the cut-ins just before the class trial are shaded red. Also, when [[spoiler:Nidai]] receives life-threatening injuries that prevent [[spoiler:him]] from participating in the class trial, [[spoiler:his]] picture is shaded a darker hue than the rest.

* The opening speech of the WesternAnimation/SupermanTheatricalCartoons underwent a small change after Franchise/{{Superman}} learned how to fly. Originally, it went, "Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound!" The updated speech used, "Able to soar higher than any plane!" for the third line. Then, when production transferred from [[Creator/MaxAndDaveFleischer Fleischer Studios]] to FamousStudios, the speech completely changed. Also, the only short in which Superman used his X-ray vision ("The Mechanical Monsters") added the line "Empowered with X-ray vision" and briefly shows X-rays coming from Superman's eyes during the intro.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' occasionally changes the backwards whispering heard at the end of the theme song, said whispering usually revealing how to the solve the cryptogram at the end of the closing credits. A WhamEpisode/MidSeasonTwist involving Grunkle Stan in the second season changes the whisper to say "[[TitleDrop Not what he seems]]" as a one-off. From that point to the series finale, the photo of the pterodactyl from the season one episode "The Land Before Swine" is replaced with that of [[WalkingSpoiler the Author holding Journal 3]]. The [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt three-part season finale]] has [[SpecialEditionTitle the entire opening sequence changed]] to prominently display [[BigBad Bill Cipher]] and [[RealityIsOutToLunch his "liberation" of Gravity Falls]], with Dipper, Mabel, and Stan's segments replaced until the final part. And while the first two episodes of the finale replaced the whisper with Bill declaring that he's watching us (two slightly different versions for each episode), the final episode instead has the original voice saying "[[EndOfSeriesAwareness Goodbye, Gravity Falls.]]"

* The opening of ''RO-KYU-BU! SS'' slightly changes the numbers of the fifth graders twice, reflecting how they are standing in the season. For example, Mimi starts out with the number 33, but when the Fifth-Grader Team is complete, the opening changes her number to 4 and then later to 10 after the fifth graders and sixth graders unite together.

* ''Anime/{{Scryed}}'' does this so much that there is perhaps one case of the title sequence being re-used ''without'' changes in the whole 26-episode series. (Apart from spoiler-based changes, there is also sepia-fading of deceased characters and 3 different main versions for three different verses of the theme tune depending on which of the main characters had the story focus that episode.) The Special Edition DVD set has the option to watch just the opening sequence of each episode.
