* In ''VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'', you are a just-Embraced vampire. The tutorial is framed as an older vampire, Jack, taking pity on you after you're kicked out of the building and teaching you how to cope with your new status as a member of the [[TabletopGame/OldWorldOfDarkness World of Darkness]]. It then gets interrupted by a faction of enemy vampires attacking; this faction is a recurring antagonist throughout the game and you get some handy tips about their methods, so you also get a quick introduction to the combat system. You also get a free lockpick. It's actually very well-integrated, and if you don't want to take the tutorial, you can tell him so early on and either shut him down entirely, or get a thirty-second rundown on the basics.

* In ''StarCraft'', a marine says, "Permission to speak freely, sir? I don't really think you know what you're doing." and proceeds to explain the two basic modes of movement. As one is new to the job of being the local magistrate, it's understandable. In addition, one can skip this mission. They integrate further minor tutorials into the first missions of the Zerg and Protoss campaigns as well (chiefly to explain the quirks of each faction).

* The online, MMO portion of ''PhantasyStarUniverse'' handled its (optional) tutorial mission, "SEED-Form Purge," this way. All new player characters were assumed to be new employees of the GUARDIANS Security Corporation, fresh from its academy. Any actual explanation of gameplay mechanics was done through text on screen rather than through the characters, with character dialogue giving the impression that equivalent in-universe explanations were given to the player character.

* In Episode 1 Chapter 2 of ''PhantasyStarUniverse'''s Story Mode, Karen teaches Ethan about forming parties and how mission points are earned. It's done fairly well, presenting a plausible in-universe system that justifies several gameplay mechanics that come up during online play.

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' and their remakes add an extra layer of justification; ''You're'' not being shown how to catch a Pokémon directly, instead, you're sent to watch over a rival and make sure ''he'' catches the Pokémon alright. It still plays out the same way as other catching tutorials, so the intent is pretty clear, but at least it's not shown as someone holding your hand through something that many players already know.

* The first chapter of ''DungeonSiege II'' is a chapter of tutorial, which has you go in a quick training just before being shoved into warzone. If you're replaying the game in higher difficulty, the game skips to the second chapter immediately.
