MultipleGameOpenings is a form of StoryBranching opposite of MultipleEndings, where each available PlayerCharacter (or CharacterClass) starts the game in a different level, but all such prologues soon converge into a single common plot (which can coincide with OpeningTheSandbox).

Added DiffLines:

* At the start of ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'' you choose whether to follow Jude or Milla's story. This affects where the story starts and whose perspective you see when the party splits up. Each story has several exclusive events and bosses. At one point, Jude travels through [[SlippySlideyIceWorld an ice themed dungeon]] while Milla takes on a [[LethalLavaLand lava-themed one]], for example. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking They also get different battle music.]]

Added DiffLines:

* At the start of ''VideoGame/{{Persona Q}}'', you're given the choice of whether to follow the ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' protagonist or the ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' protagonist. Each has a totally different opening explaining how they got into the game's world, and while the first dungeon itself is the same for both you start with a very different party in each.
