* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' had one episode starting off with the ship exploding. And another starts out in an alien hospital -- the doctors are puzzling over Riker's odd physiology. It later turns out that Riker was conducting surface reconnaissance on a planet that had just become warp-capable, as the Federation was about to make first contact with them. He'd been injured in an accident and was brought unconscious to a hospital.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{The Emperor's New Groove}}'' starts with Kuzco, as a llama, crying in a jungle as he narrates his own life. He claims it will "all make sense" if we go back to see how he got in this situation, which begins the flashback to the start of the story.

* ''VideoGame/SonicBoom'' ''Rise of Lyric'' starts off with Sonic being encircled by Lyric's robots and seemingly dying as they open fire - before cutting to yesterday. It then does this a second time by immediately throwing Sonic and friends into a chase for Eggman as the first gameplay segment. [[spoiler: Notably, when the scene from the opening occurs proper, Sonic's perfectly fine afterwards and thus renders the drama from the start of the game as a pointless attention bait.]]
