* Rather than a character, ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' often holds off on debuting either the Megazord or even the TransformationSequence until the second episode of a two-part premiere. Sometimes they do both in a two-stage version: air both parts of the premiere on the same day with the first transformation happening in the second half, then bring out the mecha in next week's episode.

Some premieres also show some of the team morphed in the first episode, but wait until the second to let the entire team transform.

* Asuna in the anime of ''SwordArtOnline''.

* Because ''Anime/ShiryakuIkaMusume'''s episodes are divided into three mini-episodes, who qualifies for this depends on how you look at it. The spirit may be exemplified by Takeru, the younger brother of the Aizawa sisters, introduced in "Aren't We Brothers-in-Arms?", the second part of the first episode. Characters introduced in the literal second episode: Goro the Life Saver, in "Aren't We Squids of a Feather?" and Sanae, in "Want to Swim Out and Play?"

* Rui plays a very important role in ''Anime/GatchamanCrowds'', being the one responsible for both materializing and directing the titular [[SoulPoweredEngine CROWDS]] that appear in the story. He also gets heavily involved in the conflict due to the antagonist's interest in manipulating him for his own goals. Despite all of this, he doesn't get officially introduced until the end of episode 2 at which point he starts getting regular screen time afterward.
