** 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.

* In the film ''Film/{{Horsemen}}'' (starring Dennis Quaid), Ziyi Zhang has second billing in the opening credits. Even if you didn't recognize the name, the fact that she's the only Asian actor in the movie gives away the fact that her character is more than she seems to be when she is first introduced.

* ''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.

* 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.

* 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.
