* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'': Lord Monty a.k.a. Monkey Fist appears in the opening theme from the very first episode onwards, however his first appearance was not until episode 13, where it was written as if Monty turning out to be the bad guy was a big twist.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' not only gives away its central philosophy in the very title (notable since Part 1 of the two-part series premiere was a {{deconstruction}} of [[MyLittlePony the show's parent franchise]] and [[GirlShowGhetto other such "little girl shows"]]), but summarizes the main protagonist's [[CharacterDevelopment character arc]] over the course of said premiere in the first few lines of its theme song.

* The theme song for ''[[WesternAnimation/TotalDrama Total Drama Action]]'' features Courtney, who came back halfway through to the surprise of the castmates and (maybe) Chris. However, the flipbook itself had no intention of this ever being a spoiler.

* An episode of the animated ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' series has the team helped out by an arrow fired from the shadows. When they confront Green Arrow and accuse him of babysitting them and he proves it wasn't his arrow, they assume his sidekick, Speedy, is ready to join the team after storming out in the pilot. Yeah ... or maybe it's the female archer who appears in the opening credits of the show as a team member despite having not appeared in the actual show yet at that point.
** The team isn´t completely assembled in story before episode 6 but the intro shows the whole team since episode 1.

* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', it takes several episodes before the titular military team is formed, and there is much angst on the protagonist's part as she wonders who she will be partnered with...which is all well and good, except for the part where three other girls are prominently depicted in the intro, even fighting alongside her in one scene. (The other characters aren't given half so much screentime.) The DVD cover also spoils this plot point, describing Ruby's teammates in detail and showing them in a suitably badass pose.

** Thankfully, this is less frequent as it was before now, possibly due to the complaints they've recieved. Many events nowadays either put the bonus content after the movie (such as Doctor Who and The Iron Giant), use clips that don't spoil much of the movie (such as TeamHotWheelsOriginOfAwesome, which used clips from the first 20 minutes, which were already available for free on YouTube), use no clips at all (Some examples include the 2015 showings of The Wizard of Oz and Film/{{Grease}}, which had introductions by TCM hosts. For example, the Wizard of Oz screening had a brief explanation of how the film found success when it was shown on TV, since it didn't do well in theaters when it first came out.) or interview the cast (such as One Direction: Where We Are and Dragon Ball Z: Ressurection F).

* The German version of Music/TheWho's ''Tommy'' has an opening narration that states "Tommy can not be dubbed!" in this exact words. The narrator then proceeds to give an overview of the films plot which means he gives away every plot twist until the very last moment of the film as if he was reading the synopsis off of Wikipedia. The narration also plays over the first two minutes of the film where Tommy's parents meet until the start of the war and cancels out any music. Then the movie proceeds with subtitles, making the inclusion of the narrator completely pointless.

** A lot of characters that don't show up until the second or third season are given a lot of prominence.

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' somewhat subverted this in their two part special "100th episode". The title of the first part, "Stewie Kills Lois", spoils the plot point near the beginning where Stewie does just that. The conclusion's title, "Lois Kills Stewie", not only spoils Lois's return, but also the apparent resolution of the episode. But when that moment actually came, it was Peter who killed Stewie. Not that it matters anyway, since it was [[AllJustADream all just a simulation]].

* The third chapter intro for ''WebComic/GastroPhobia'' spoils both [[ShapeShifting Mania]]'s introduction, and the appearance of her human form.

** The leaked theme song for ''World Tour'' also FINALLY settled the issue of [[BaseBreaker Ezekiel's]] participation in the season or not. He's in. For now.

[[InternalSubtrope A variation]] is where [[NarrowedItDownToTheGuyIRecognize vaguely famous]] names appear in the credits, so you can guess automatically that they're going to be fairly prominent in the episode before they even show up. In series with recurring characters that are not normally in the credits or a [[TheBusCameBack cameo from someone who left the show]] this can indicate their eventual presence in an episode ruining their unexpected entrance. This variant is often {{Enforced|Trope}} by the certain rules of Actor UsefulNotes/{{Unions|InHollywood}},[[note]]specifically, who can appear where in the credits[[/note]] [[http://www.midwinter.com/lurk/guide/098.html as noted by]] Creator/JMichaelStraczynski. DeadStarWalking can be either a straight-playing or an aversion of this subtrope, depending on how it's presented. Contrast NotNamedInOpeningCredits when the credits omit an actor's name and maintain the surprise.
