* Nearly every episode of ''Series/{{Flashpoint}}'' begins this way (the moment being the titular the flashpoint). However, the beginning intro often misleads the audience when the situation is much more complicated and different than they had originally expected.

* Film/{{Gattaca}} begins with "Jerome Morrow" getting ready to lift off on a manned probe to one of Saturn's moons. It seems like it's going to be a space adventure, until "Jerome" reveals the truth; his real name is Vincent, and an imposter, having taken over the identity of another man after being born "genetically inferior". The rest of the film is about Vincent's life, the discrimination he faced because he was a "God-child" (conceived naturally instead of by in vitro) and his decision to assume Jerome's identity in order to have a chance, and about a murder investigation that threatens to reveal Vincent's secret. The space mission isn't launched until the final moments of the film.

* The Zou Arc in ''Manga/OnePiece'' starts in media res ''twice'' thanks to the Straw Hats arriving on Zou in two waves. The first time we see Zou, no context is given for anything as the Curly Hats are shown pursuing a squirrel-person and fighting a strange pirate. The rest of the Straw Hats arrive a little over a week later, and not only are there flashbacks about the context of the first scene, but it turns out that [[spoiler:Sanji went missing]] in the time ''between'' when the two groups of Straw Hats got to Zou. There's so many flashbacks that there's not actually a whole lot of present-day conflict in the arc.

* ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'' begins not just in the middle of the story, but in the middle of life as a whole. Dante is 30 as the poem begins, and the readers will learn much about his past and future from the ghosts of the afterlife and their visions of things yet to be.
