* ''UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' has the infamously long airport scene, just after the opening credits, where most of the Ushiromiya family is introduced through cheerful mundane conversations (although the names and explanations are given in the narration rather than the dialogues). Both the anime and manga adaptations removed the scene, putting bits of it on the boat, during the lunch on Rokkenjima, or even in Episode 2. The story get to the point much faster as a result.

* ''ElfQuest'' does this in the first issue; while the characters are in different areas, they're all called with "sending" (telepathy) and drawn in a single panel, each with their name. The only ones absent are the chief who calls them and the few characters who'd been introduced in the Universe''.
