* This is avoided in the opening of ''Film/StarTrekIIITheSearchForSpock''...but there is an extra long pause between WilliamShatner's credit and [=DeForest=] Kelley's where Nimoy's name would normally appear.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/GrimTrigger'': Volume one's opening sequence spoils Tage and Hunter working together. The first two credits also spoil Lodin and Proxy joining them.

* In ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'' every four episodes of season 3 had an opening sequence using clips from those four episodes. Naturally plot developments like Enzo's TimeSkip, the Saucy Mare's web armor, and Mainframe in ruins are spoiled. Averted with the {{Toonami}} broadcast, which replaced those openings with customized ones.

An overlap with ForegoneConclusion at times happens. See also FirstEpisodeSpoiler, which can often fall prey to this, though that can be averted with any of the above methods or just using a TitleOnlyOpening for that episode.

[[InternalSubtrope A variation]] is where vaguely famous names appear in the credits, so [[NarrowedItDownToTheGuyIRecognize 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.

** The intro also depicts Cinder in an ObviouslyEvil fashion- surrounded by flames and minions- which is odd, as she only appears in the season finale's [[TheStinger stinger]].

* The opening narration of ''Film/{{Hop}}'' spoils the fact that the main human character becomes the first human easter bunny. This concept isn't introduced untill a little before the climax, after a movie of basically nothing happening.

** Thankfully, this is less frequent as it was before now, possibly due to the complaints they've received. 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 opening of ''WesternAnimation/{{Trollhunters}}'' spoils the fact that Jim's love interest Claire is going to join the team while she spends the first half of the first season [[{{Muggles}} clueless about Jim and Toby's adventures]].

** The DarkerAndEdgier turn Volume 3 takes halfway through is foreshadowed by the opening credits theme.
** The Volume 4 opening spoils the fact that Sun is the hooded figure stalking Blake on the ship in "Of Runaways And Stowaways", the fact that Qrow has been watching over Team RNJR/JNNR in "Family", and the fact that the two faunus Corsac and Fennec that debut in "Menagerie" are in league with Adam.
