* The three thugs getting killed by Guts in the bar scene from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', including one getting ''slashed in half'' with his {{BFS}}. ** The manga manages to take its opening UpToEleven and has Guts, in a totally superfluous non-sequitur, sexing up and killing a female demon just to establish himself as a stone-cold BadAss, which the aforementioned bar scene does aptly, without flying in the face of his later characterization.

This is generally considered to be EarlyInstallmentWeirdness by the aforementioned bar scene does aptly, without flying fans, as Guts is revealed later in the face of his later characterization.story to have a very strong aversion to sex or even [[HatesBeingTouched being touched]] in general, making that scene completely out-of-character for him.

* ''Film/KickAss'' starts with a mentally deranged man jumping off a roof in a superhero costume and promptly falling to his death. The very next scene has the main character masturbating to his English teacher. [[ViewersAreMorons This was likely put there for the benefit of all the people who saw the trailers of kids in superhero costumes and completely ignored the R-rating.]]

* The opening scenes of ''Literature/WatershipDown'' probably [[SugarApocalypse served as]] an inspiration for ''HappyTreeFriends.''

* The anime adaptation of ''Manga/{{Parasyte}}'' took a scene from the middle of the first chapter and showed it as the very opening of the frist episode. In this scene, a man who has been taken over by the titular creature opens his face ''five'' ways and reveals a gaping, black hole full of teeth and five eyes and then [[OffWithHisHead bites his wife's head off]], with lots of blood and gore. [[{{Understatement}} Not nice]].

* ''VideoGame/FreedomPlanet'' opens with the main villain leading an invasion into a palace, killing everyone insight, beheading the king ''in front of his son'', and then capping off the intro cutscene by '''''preceding to brainwash said son into his mindless slave!''''' Did we mention that this game was partly inspired by ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog''?

* Similarly, ''Series/JessicaJones2015'' starts with Jessica following a couple during a tryst and taking photos of them in the act as part of her job as a PrivateInvestigator and swearing multiple times during her narration, clearly establishing that this show isn't for the kiddies.

* Another Disney example, ''Film/HocusPocus''. A five-year-old girl is murdered by three witches in the first three minutes (off-screen, thank goodness) and about five minutes later (after said witches use a vile curse to turn her brother into a cat) they're arrested and ''publically hanged''. (A discretion shot hides most of the hanging, but not all.) And this is followed by a rather dark scene with the cursed brother vainly trying to get his father's attention, only for him to shoo him and say, "begone, beast". In fact, this whole movie is darker than the typical Disney family film.
