* This is how ''Roleplay/RubyQuest'' first revealed what genre it was. Ruby looks through a slat in a door, and sees only Stitches's eyes. When she finally gets the door open, she sees his face... [[spoiler:then sees that his head is the only part of him that's fully intact.]]

* This is how ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl'' introduces us to [[BreakoutCharacter Captain Jack Sparrow]]. Standing proudly atop his ships mast, [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome hero music blaring...]] and then widens to reveal that not only is his "ship" a dinghy, it's almost totally sunk, hitting the bottom as he jumps onto the dock.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'': The intro cinematic begins with a shot of a radio playing "I Don't Want To Set the World on Fire", then zooms out to reveal a wrecked bus and the nuclear war-torn ruins of Washington, DC. ''VideoGame/((Fallout New Vegas))'' handles this the opposite way: the game opens with a shot of the ruined Lucky 38 casino, set to "Blue Moon," only to pan out further, showing the Strip itself, which is a thriving community, and further, that society in the Mojave is actually functional.

* The opening scene of ''Franchise/StarWars: Film/ANewHope'' does this. First the Princess' ship goes overhead, everything is normal. Then the Star Destroyer starts to slowly go overhead... and goes... and goes and you realize that the ship is HUGE. At this point, if you were first watching it in 1977 when it came out, you suddenly realized how awesome this movie was going to be. Differs from the others in that the Star Destroyer enters (and enters and enters!) as opposed to the camera zooming out.
** Parodied, of course, in ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}''.
** Used brilliantly again in ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' when early in the movie, the Star Destoyers are shown again in their majestic glory when all of a sudden they start getting eclipsed by something. The audience is keenly aware that something ''massive'' is above these things we were so in awe of in the first movie. The camera switches to a lower angle pointing upwards as a Star Destroyer looks so small compared to the ship above where just a portion of it fills the scene. Then, the camera reveals in all its glory Vader's new flagship, the ''Executor'', a Super Star Destroyer that makes very other ship look like an insect.

** ''Film/TheForceAwakens'': While fleeing from the TIE-fighters' bombardment on Jakku, Rey dismisses the off-screen spaceship Finn is suggesting as "garbage", but the other ship they were heading to gets blown up. This leads to the decision that "the garbage will do", with the camera panning to reveal to the audience that the aforementionned piece of junk happens to be the ''Millennium Falcon''.
