** ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'' opens with the near future timeline showing that the Sentinels have driven both humans and mutants alike to near-extinction, heavily implying that members of both the X-Men and Brotherhood have died trying to fight them. The opening fight also shows that it takes several mutants to stop just one of them, setting up the stakes of the conflict and how the film is considerably darker than previous entries.

* The film adaptation of ''Anime/GhostInTheShell'' opens with the Major assassinating a corrupt diplomat; which results in [[YourHeadASplode diplomat's head exploding in a gory fashion]]. Furthering this is the dialogue being full of heavy political and philosophical discussions (and a joke about menstruation if you're watching the Japanese version), and the Major removing her trenchcoat before she makes the dive; so she's nude for the mission save for her gun holster, a pair of boots and fingerless gloves. Following this is the nudity in the "shelling" sequence in the opening credits, proving much like ''Akira'' above; this isn't for children even if it's animated.

* ''Series/HillStreetBlues'' received outstanding reviews but had extremely poor ratings in its first season. One of the points that the critics focused on, besides the writing and characterization, was the amount of sex and violence in the show, which (for the time and for network television) was ground-breaking. So the second season debut cold open featured a large number of scantily clad women being arrested for prostitution and brought into the station, and a gang member who was there grabbing a cop's gun and threatening the rest of the room at which time every other cop in the room took him down in a hail of bullets. The camera scans over the main characters holding smoking guns standing over the dead gang member with a bunch of barely dressed women in the background, and then cuts to the theme song with the title cards. Basically, the intro clearly stated "Here is what you are in for if you watch this show".

* The adults only [[ComicBook/ThePunisherMAX Punisher]] series opens up with Frank recounting the fateful day in Central Park where his family where slain in a mob shootout. Complete with graphic depictions of Frank's dead family. Shortly afterwards, we see Frank laying waste to dozens of Capos with his signature M60, along with copious amounts of [[{{Gorn}} blood and gore flying everywhere]], that thanks to some brilliant artwork by Lewis Larosa is made equal parts [[NauseaFuel nauseating]] and awesome. It's important to note that all of this happens before the first issue is even ''finished''.

**Previous to that, in ''VideoGame/UltimaVII'', within the first 20 minutes of the game, you're asked to investigate an extremely fresh, extremely brutal murder. Again, not even a whiff of a GoryDiscretionShot.

** The opening credits for ''Film/Deadpool2016'' has lots of profanity at some points and the first fight scene instantly starts with one of the villains being decapitated, with lots of blood and gore following shortly afterwards.
** ''Film/{{Logan}}'''s opening fight scene would never get away with a PG-13. The title character's first line is an [[PrecisionFStrike F-bomb]], and [[spoiler:in the fight he severs limbs and skewers his adversary's head with his claws]]. The small scale brutality of the fight also establishes that it will be a much more brutal experience than any other film in the series.
