* When Wrestling/RTruth turned heel and lost his mind in 2010, his entrance was proceeded by his then-new catchphrase "The Truth Will Set You Free" and nothing else. His former rap theme would not be heard again until he formed the Awesome Truth with Wrestling/TheMiz.

See also TitleOnlyOpening, SpecialEditionTitle.

See also SpecialEditionTitle. Usually overlaps with TitleOnlyOpening, SpecialEditionTitle. though they are not mutually inclusive--it's possible for a show to have a theme tune that isn't in the opening or a longer opening that doesn't have music.

* On the same block, ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' just has a few notes over its title when it airs in the U.S., but that's just the end of the original opening which was cut for time. Other countries either show the original opening, or ones they made themselves.

* Creator/CartoonNetwork seems to be making this the standard, as even their half-hour action cartoons like ''WesternAnimation/GreenLanternTheAnimatedSeries'' and ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' from the second season onward lack much besides a title card.
