* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': One of [[HangingJudge Judge Death]]'s catch phrases is "The Crime is Life, the Sentence is Death!". His OriginsEpisode shows him first using this phrase when, immediately after becoming an undead killing machine, he pays the Chief Judge of his homeworld a visit to execute and replace him. His fellow Dark Judges approve.
-->''"Now that is good!"''

* The ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' comic "Uprising" shows Tracer (Lena Oxton)'s first mission as a member of Overwatch. When she meets Torbjörn, he sarcastically greets her with "Looks like the cavalry's here". When Tracer became renowned herself, her catchphrase was "Cheers, love! The cavalry's here!"
-->'''Cadet Oxton :''' ...the cavalry's here... not bad... not half bad.

* Though not a catch phrase, there's the DopeSlap that Gibbs uses on ''Series/{{NCIS}}''. During a series of flashbacks in "Hiatus", it's revealed that he got it from his former boss, Mike Franks. That, and Rule #6: "Never say you're sorry. It's a sign of weakness."

* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' establishes "Go Team Venture" as the catch phrase of contemporary Hank and Dean Venture. However, in "Past Tense" we learn that it was inherited from the ''original'' Team Venture that were the comrades of their grandfather Jonas. Unlike Hank and Dean's own invocations, when reunited Team Venture say the phrase it causes epic theme music to play and a fancy logo to be superimposed over the screen.
-->'''Hank:''' Now ''that's'' how it's done!

A major character has some sort of {{catchphrase}} or other profound statement which defines his/her character. A Flashback to Catchphrase is a {{flashback}} which takes place before the series chronology (or at least before this major character was introduced) which shows the moment in which the phrase came into ''their'' vernacular.

* Subverted in ''Manga/BlackJack'' where Pinoko's origin episode still doesn't explain her CharacterTic of putting her hands to her cheeks and saying "Oh no!", which shocked Jack the first time. Apparently she just did it one day for no reason.
